    I would say racing. At least I think racing. If that is what games like Mario Kart and Crusin' USA are, then that's what I vote for.

    Aww can't decide I like strategy and shooters. Although you don't have RPG's up there though. I guess I'll go with strategy since I enjoy a good game of mind against mind now and than.

    Personally, I like variety more than I like any specific genres. How much I enjoy the game for the game is more important to me than what genre it's in. I have games that I like that would fit under shooters, strategy, RPGs, racing, action/adventure, old-school side scrollers, sports, etc. I do like some fighting games somewhat, but to be completely honest, they all feel pretty alike to me.
    Truth gains more even by the errors of one who, with due study and preparation, thinks for himself, than by the true opinions of those who only hold them because they do not suffer themselves to think.

    Im heavily biased towards online games. Love them
    Life may not be exactly pleasant, but it is at least not dull. Heave yourself into Hell today, and you may miss, tomorrow or next day, another Scopes trial, or another War to End War, or perchance a rich and buxom widow with all her first husband's clothes. There are always more Hardings hatching. I advocate hanging on as long as possible.

    Video games are just a way to keep you from being productive. The only ones that are worth anything at all are the ones that teach the player something worth learning. How to kill an electronically depicted target with an electronically depicted weapon is not a worthwhile lesson. It's simply one of many ways to keep people from actually doing something good.

    I used to waste my time playing Tetrus (sp?), RadRacer, PacMan, Asteroids and various other non-sensical games. All they are meant for is to occupy your time...with something that does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING but entertain you for a while and to encourage your addiction to scoring higher than all others in some silly game.

    All you who are still seriously addicted to electronic gaming should take a week off in the mountains without ANY electronics...or just buy a couple of fishing rigs and take a younger person to the lake for an afternoon of trying to outwit a real animal. It is far more gratifying than getting a sore muscle from punching a game button all day.

    You really need to start playing games again if you think trying to outwit a fish is going to provide more benefit - put aside the various problem solving aspects to puzzle games, RTS and RPGs (and FPS to a limited degree), you are also forgetting the multiplayer aspect to most modern games where you are essentially trying to prove yourself faster or smarter than the opposition (or better team work from the point of view of MMORPGs).

    Sure its not a complete substitute for other sports and hobbies, but games have increased massively in complexity nowadays, I'm sure you could measure various biochemical standards for mental exercise and you'd see that they are just as challenging as sports or hunting. Its just the getting up of fatr lazy arse issue that puts physical activities slightly further infront.

    Isn't the point of fishing to drink beer and do nothing anyway? I was under the impression that the catching of fish was purely incidental...

    That's hard to answer, well at least for me. I can enjoy just about every genre of game, except trading card ones like YUGIOH or Poke'mon whats the point of having trading cards if its on a console?
    I prefer FPS and TPS the most. Like Half-Life, Counterstrike, Conker, Halo etc...

    I like sports games, although I like the strategy in them too. But hey, most games are fun. I mean that is the goal.
