It's a toss up really between shmups and puzzle... and fighting.... can't forget FPS... it's hard for me to put down an RPG...
I can't decide, but if I had to choose it would be shmups at the moment.

I'm not sure why, but I love those masochist platformers that have you raging after a cheap death. Can't stop.

I had fun once and it was awful.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

Certain puzzler games (Tetris, Peggle, Solomon's Key, etc), and defintiely "sandbox"/open-world games (GTAs, Bully, Saint's Row). With the sandbox games it'll usually take me forever to finish the main storyline because i always get distracted just randomly wandering around the game world engaging in shenanigans for hours. And of course RPGs (esp. old-school), just recently began FFVI to watch the intro (and remind myself which one it was, lol), and now i'm like 20 hours in when i had no intention of really playing through it again now.

Shooters (Star Parodier and Soldier Blade) and Platformers, oh and Punch Out, they just have that one more go factor for me. I think it's because the levels are quite short and as I'm quite short on free time for playing games so they suit my lifestyle. I love RPG's but they usually take me forever to finish these days as I haven't got the required time to invest in them.

What's this bit for again?

Nothing can keep me occupied for hours quite like a good RPG. Right now I've lost myself in the original Paper Mario (again) and still stuck in Final Fantasy IV on my DS. Man, I love both of these games.

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

Survival Horror games are awesome, but that's since I'm a bit of a fan of horror in general.

I'd say freeroam games (is that a genre?). You can't get bored when you can do whatever you want. I guess I just like exploring. I can't wait for Monster Hunter 3

Also, I love FPSs.

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.
