I can't get into serious flight simulators or heavy going strategy games just not enough happening for me.
I can understand the appeal of instant gratification in other genres, but to characterize RPG players with a general point of view oversimplifies the matter. They scratch different itches, surely, but they both have equal merit. Instead of asking "what genre," people should ask "is it good or not"? Just my two cents.
Strongly disagree on FPS, I love the genre because it has so many different sub-genres, they are most certainly not all exactly the same.
I'm also generally not too big on puzzle games(mainly cause i'm not very good at puzzles).
With RPGs it's not so much that I dislike them as they just require far too much of a time investment, i'm willing to make an exception for some games like the Fallout, Deus Ex, Mass Effect series.
I do like games with RPG elements, Alpha Protocol being one of my personal favorites.
Used to play flight sims as a kid, but now they bore me, I also can't get into grand strategy games like the Civilization series.
haha, I 100% agree with this. I'm the same way. I stink at sports games and am absolutely terrible at racing games. Hence, I have zero interest in them.
That might be part of my problem. I don't want to spend a lot of time following an upgrade-path only to find out I made a poor decision earlier in the game.
There are enough hard decisions in real life, too many of them in a game is a turn-off to me.
