What is the trend in popular gaming genres? Is there a trend? Is fantasy still reigning or has science fiction taken a larger grasp on the community?

And what is up with this increase in games focusing around ancient martial arts??

Lastly, and possibly most importantly, what is YOUR favorite genre?

Fantasy RPGs are pretty much at the top of the market..

Personally I like FPS.. Sci-Fi.. War genre.. it's all good.

Yeah... I figured fantasy would still be on top...

Mm... So I'm guessing you're a fan of Battlefield2 then? Hoo... that game is intense.

The online FPS is on the rise, soon we'll see a proper MMOFPS. I hate MMORPGs to be honest, but unfortunately they're on the rise as well, why do they even bother with the RPG part? It's more like MMOH&S. I only have guild wars, was fun for a while but already I'm bored.

My favourite genre would have to be historical FPS and strategy games. I love mods like Forgotten Hope and most WW2 shooters though I wish we could have a Great War FPS, or maybe even some 19th century wars like the American Civil War or the Napoleonic campaigns. If done right it would be great. I love realistic strategy games. I'm just beginning to get the hang of the beast that is Hearts of Iron 2. I kinda like the Total War series but RTW was just a disappointment. Poor hardcoded AI. Hopefully M2TW will be an improvement.

Hm... I see... but it's surprising how well WoW did. 6 million users?

Then again, classic FPS games like CS and now BF2 will never really be forgotten either...

Yeah it did pretty well, and I could see why alot of people would find them entertaining, but they're really just hack and slash and after a while that just doesn't be fun anymore...
