All early access/beta. All rogue-like/rogue-lite. All multiplayer-only. All sports. All typing games. All visual novels. All text based games. 99% of indie games. All rts. All dungeon crawler. 99% of pixel art games. All meter babysitting games.

These are all things I hate, or have learned to hate. It would be rare for me to make an exception.

Not really a genre but I gave up on competitive multiplayer years ago. Like 10yrs+. I did my time in StarCraft, TFC, Soldier of Fortune 2, etc when I was a teen. But as the years went by I realized I don’t like being on other people’s time when I have a chance to game. I’d rather be playing nonstop than 10mins of waiting followed by 10mins of failure then 10mins of waiting, repeat. I’ve dipped into stuff like TF2, Insurgency and Rocket League over the years but never past casually (I even played Heartstone for a month once!). I do feel bad that co-op kinda got swept under the rug in all of it for me too since co-op can be mostly fun. But whateves. Guess I’m selfish when it comes to my gaming time!

I don’t really have a genre I specifically don’t like. I just don’t like when a genre is done bad! Like 2D platformer can be one of my favs but a bad 2D platformer can be one of the worst gaming experiences on the planet. I guess I’ll choose MMO though since I’ve never played one.

Same. My teens and early 20s were all competitive fps and mmo. Not just being a player either, but being a multi-game clan leader for over 10 years on top of that which includes management of web server, game servers, voip servers, and in game strategy management/organization.
These days I say fuck all that. All single player, on my time. What I want, when I want, pause at any time.

I’ll give a game in most genres a shot if it looks good. But I won’t even attempt visual novels. I’d rather just read a comic book.

I don’t think many people consider racing games to be sports games…but if it must be so, then racing is the only sport I like.

gord0 Oddly enough, the only reason I got into racing sims/games on PC is because of the lack sports games on PC. I needed my sports game fix after so many years without a console. And now a few years down the line I own a freakin’ racing wheel… Haha.

You’ll need EA to fuck up FIFA and NHL like starwars so that a diff publisher gets the rights and maybe they will publish on pc. UFC too. I like watching my bro play that on ps4.

Can ps4 stream to pc? lol

Can’t say a dislike an entire genre. I don’t like too many competitive multi-player games like people have mentioned before but at the same time, I do very much enjoy competitive multi-player shooters if they’re class based. I think I may have grown to hate MOBAs but that’s mostly because of toxic players and less because of the game itself. I enjoy playing them but they always seem to have the worst communities.

So you can at least pretend : ]

Holy macaroni you guys are alive.

I dislike horror and sports games. And games like XCOM. And 90% indie games. As for multiplayer games that are competitive…I generally dislike them too except League of Legends. I’m playing LoL ever since it was launched back in year 1932 and apparently, I can’t stop playing it. Help meee
