In honor of my several recent video game related posts, I’m asking which genre of game is your favorite. And once again, I’ve made all the “explanations” apply to me. I can’t help it; I think it’s funny. Anyhoo, I personally found it very difficult to vote since I play just about all of those types fairly often. When I compared approximate total hours of life wasted, though, the answer was pretty clear. “Puzzle” it was. (When I was breaking up with my psycho boyfriend in high school, I would literally spend HOURS hiding from him in the computer lab and playing Minesweeper.)
Aside: When I just told Snookums about this poll, he responded, “Does ‘downloading source code and recompiling it just for fun’ count as a game genre?” *grin* No.
Oh, and bonus points to the first person to correctly identify the film reference buried in the options…
