    I know it's a racing forum, but can we spice things up with some other titles too? What else are you or have you played that's worth mentioning?

    League of Legends and Counter Strike are my main other two.

    Although my Steam library contains around 100 games! The Steam sales are just wayyyy to tempting :D


    EDIT: Didn't actually mention the genres.. FPS, MOBA, Strategy

    Survival horror, rpgs, action-adventure, anything action-related, It's ok to just shoot around but it is also nice to have a very well-thought-through games with a story and puzzles.

    Planescape Torment is most sophisticated and well-written game to have ever been made. It is the best example I can find of video-games as art.

    I love the FPS genre - recently I've been playing BF3, BF4 (Beta), Borderlands 2 (Play it with your friends - it isn't that fun alone), FireFall and Payday 2 (Again, play this one with your friends, really recommended). I also love sandboxes, such as GMod.

    Fighting games, FPS and open world. These 3 are pretty much the only genres I like. I don't mind platformers and sports game as such, just don't play them a lot.

    Strategy games. IMO [apart from racing games] no other game genre can touch them. I've tried shooting games but they get to be too repetitive.

    My favorite genres would be Role Playing, Action, Adventure, FPS, and Strategy! I'm a die hard steam gamer and enjoy a lot of genres. Lately my friend has bought me crusader kings 2 which really pulled me into the strategy genre. Hopefully with the more games I play, I will start to enjoy even more genres! :D

    I really like Third Person Action and Open World games. I am also into some FPS but only for online gameplay.

    I absolutely love the FPS genre. I've been playing FPS games for as long as I can remember and I'm not stopping any time soon. I love games such as Battlefield, Call of Duty, Halo, you name it.

    I like fighting games equally to racing games. I'm equally average on both genres though, and my friends could probably beat me on either on an average day. Still very fun for me though even if I keep losing. :)

    Apart from the racing genre I like strategies, MMORPGs and 3D shooters!

    A good example of the genres stated above are HOMM3, HOMM5, HOMM6, Starcraft, LoL, WoW, Counter Strike 1.6, Unreal Tournament and Serious Sam II.

    Big RPG fan - Final Fantasy, the 'Tales of' series, and Pokemon in particular - but I've also gotten into Awesomenauts recently; it's a 2D platformer-styled MOBA, similar vein to Dota and LoL. Much more accessible, which is nice (I tried Dota a few times and just couldn't get the hang of it).

    I really like sims and "tycoon" games. Don't seem to be too many out there that interest me at the moment. I like the look of Prison Architect but it's very expensive for an alpha.

    I also like RPG's, shooters, flying simulators, strategies and soccer games. For example now I play a fantastic survival action adventure game called The last of us, 3 shooters Swat 3, BF4 and COD: Ghosts and the new FIFA 2014 soccer simulator.

    I enjoy Action and Adventure games of course, as well as Sports games. However on genre that I enjoy a lot is Horror games such as Zombie games. I don't why but they are always entertaining to me.

    I love RPG's and MMORPG's, I like the leveling, upgrading and the feeling of progressing my character.
    In racing games I also love this feeling when you have games that you can upgrade your cars like Need for Speed Underground for example.
