The amount of crossover between genres these days makes it hard to categorize many of them into one lane.  Like the Tomb Raider reboot was a third-person shooter platformer crafting RPG survival drama.  Hell, the original trilogy and various follow-ups are third-person shooter platformer puzzles.  And the variety in FPS types alone is a headache.  Halo's my second favorite series, Perfect Dark's somewhere high up there too, but I couldn't care in the slightest about Call of Duty, I'd take Turok over it.

But I'd guess my favorite overall would be Metroidvanias, fitting enough Metroid is my favorite series overall.  And that has its own split between 2D and 3D Metroidvanias with mainline titles and Prime.

I'm especially partial to three genres: platformers, beat 'em ups and shmups. Usually games in these three genres that aren't somehow completely terrible will catch my attention in some way.

I feel you, but im usually able to identify the core mechanics that draw me into a particular game. In my case its wrpgs mechanics.

From what I’ve been looking for, I find myself being somewhat drawn to ARPGs on mobile.

Fighting games (casual level only)
Rhythm games (Pump it Up / Beatmania IIDX / Taiko no Tatsujin / Muse Dash being the most relevant ones)

Fighting games were my thing but I was never in the competitive spirit so I stray from playing with others who are. Anyway, my personal favorite fighting games are Smash Bros and MvC2. Other type of fighting games I love are beat 'em ups, especially Final Fight and Streets of Rage. I just downloaded Streets of Rage Remake v5.2 recently and I love the new unlock system they have. It's worth playing the game the normal way for because the unlockables in SORR are worth replaying the game over and over again even though it has 4 routes (SOR1 Route, SOR2 Route, 2 others with SOR3 stuff in it).

My other favorite genre of gaming is SHMUPS. Yes, arcade styled shmups but the only shmup I play is the Raiden series, especially 3 and 4 since I own Raiden 3 for the PS2. I might get Raiden 5 for my Switch some day.
Beware the Dark Wolf once more!

Fighting games #1, and then FPS games. Been playing CODM since it launched and its surprisingly good on a phone.

Anything coin-op is my true love, obviously fighting comes out at top though.


I do play grand strategy and really poorly made Warcraft maps otherwise.

Button-mashing games are fun, but they may get monotonous real quick.

Sometimes It'd be great to stick with something that can help you brainstorming and entertaining at the same time.

Fighting games or any arcade game are my #1 faves most definetly (Though I don't consider myself the best at them)
I'm also getting into JRPG's (Thanks Persona 5) and Visual Novels (Thanks Danganronpa)

I'll give any genre a chance.
