I've never been crazy about role playing games. I tried Mass Effect, and the role playing aspect just bogged the game down, as well as that inane dialog wheel. What difference would it make if I selected what ever was on the wheel, or if I had him say "Your mother's a **bleep**, Trebek!". Come to think of it, that would be funnier.

2D Fighters (Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, etc.). I feel 3D fighters like Soul Calibur and Dead or Alive are just far superior in terms of tactics and variety.

 

Simulations - racing, flight, trains, etc.

 

Rhythm games - uch, they're awful to play and watch

 

Tactical Turn-based Strategy (aka. War games) - don't know if this genre exists on the consoles, but as a PC gamer, I just can't get into them.

 

I don't play much sports games or arcade racers (as opposed to racing sims), but don't necessarily hate them, they're just usually not worth my time.

First person shooters. Everyone (i know) who plays them (and just them) thinks they are so elite and good at every game. Ugh, I hate what they do to people. And IMO, they're not even fun. They all have the same basic multiplayer and story (though the newer CoDs have an 'okay' story) and basically (particularly refering to CoD at this point) is the same game every year.

@Mixe No, see, those are first person shooter, which is a shooter in first person. Uncharted, Gears of War, Ratchet and Clank, are all 3rd person shooters. Their not straight up 3rd person shooters(except Gears of War)but they have shooter mechanics, enough to be classified as 3rd person shooters, which fall into the shooter category.

you can play silent hill homecoming 100% shooting all enemies using its shooting mechanic but it is not a shooting game even when you shoot so much

@Des That's different...okay, maybe I went a little too far saying Uncharted is also a 3rd person shooter as well as an action adventure game, which, imo, it is, but saying Ratchet and Clank is not a 3rd person shooter is naive since the game centers around it's ridiculous amount of weapons and weapon upgrades for USING the weapons.

Yeah I agree, not a fan of shoots myself. There are some great 3rd person shooters though. I do love uncharted and ratchet and clank.
