Traditional fighters.

I had Street Fighter II on the SNES as a kid, but I found it too difficult to make it to M. Bison at the time, and I'd always lose if I did make it (it didn't help matters that I couldn't figure out to do a Hadouken, lol).

In 2007, I got SoulCalibur III for the PS2, and absolutely fell in love with it. It, along with Dead or Alive 4 (which I got sometime after) made me a traditional fighter fan.

I'm currently playing the King of Fighters XIII on 360.

Reading through this thread, I'm realising I dislike a lot more genres than I so like. (ーー;)I hate sports games, shooting games, survival horror games (I can only survive past the tutorial…) and I used to hate RPGs but I love those now.

I don't recall ever outright disliking any game genre, but I suppose the closest answer to the OP would be everything that falls under the somewhat vast "strategy" umbrella (tactical RPGs, real-time strategy and so on).

Mostly because I was freaking terrible at them. Well, I'm still really, really bad at most strategy games (the Pikmin series and Sakura Wars might be the only exceptions), but I've grown weirdly fond of the genre over the years.

Well to update my original post in this thread, I have to add not so much a genre but a game CoD, mainly due to Black Ops III. It's odd but for some reason since Black Ops III came out I was wanting to try it out give the CoD series a chance again but I was waiting for it to get cheaper before sinking 60 bucks into it. Well about a few months ago my friend decided to pick up the first Black Ops on the 360 and we played it for one of our game nights. We had so much fun it reminded of us of how much we played GoldenEye back in the day.

Anyway I decided to pick up Black Ops III after hearing other co-workers go on about it and others as well as how much I enjoyed the first one. Now for the past few weeks I can't put the game down. Mainly in part cause I want to get better at it. Lol but I also enjoy gaining levels and unlocking the other guns in multiplayer mode. Before I thought these types of games took no skill but now I see they do. Yeah I am eating a big piece of humble pie now.

LICENSED GAMES. *~Ooohhh. Yeah usually they're all terrible imo but I've recently found a few I can actually enjoy. Although they're not brand new games, but yeah. Also not really a true genre exactly.

I used to dislike beat 'em ups because I thought they were repetitive, overwhelming, and (usually) devoid of level design. Now I like them for some reason. It must be the for the fighting experience without having to worry about having the greatest reflexes, speed, precision, tactics, etc. (I used to be more receptive to fighting games and dismissive of beat 'em ups, but now I'm the opposite way.)

I used to hate platform games, I still don't like em but I do give em a chance now thanks to Limbo and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.

I can't say that I disliked beat em ups, because growing up they were just never on my radar, but with the release of 3D Streets of Rage it's a genre that's become a favorite as if I'd always loved it. Played on NES as a kid in the 80's but only discovered beat em ups as a 30 year old. Well, I'm just happy I can still try "new" things lol

Well, I do enjoy Golfing games a lot more than I thought I would.

I evaded them, until I got Nes open tournament for free with the 3ds ambassador program.

Edit: yes zombie thread. It's OK.

When I was a kid I played Doom and wasn't particularly into it, so I didn't really think I cared for FPSs. I remember a few years later my friend was so excited about this upcoming Goldeneye game and I was completely uninterested (of course, it then went on to become a cultural/social phenomenon at my school and I had little choice but to check it out and fall in love with it). Though I wouldn't go as far to say that I love FPSs now because I still hardly play any.

I never really played any traditional RPGs as a kid (so Zelda doesn't count). Partly because, being from the UK, a lot of those classic NES/SNES RPGs were never released in Europe and also, even though I loved the art style of them, I thought the gameplay looked a bit boring. I have since played and enjoyed many RPGs, though I much prefer action RPGs (Tales series, Monster Hunter, The Last Story, etc). to traditional turn-based ones. I played a couple of the classic Final Fantasy and Dragon Quests and couldn't really be doing with them. I like Nintendo's turn-based RPG series (Pokémon, Mario & Luigi, etc.) as they're a bit more accessible/less grindy.
