    For me I love Sim type games like Simcity, Tropico, CIV, etc. I also love strategy games such as AoE, Warcraft, SC, Xcom, etc. The only problem is I suck at them so bad, I guess I'm not really good at micro managing which these games require. I can watch people play these games all day though and not get bored.

    How about you guys?

    I love strategy games and I think I'm pretty good at turn based ones but when it comes to RTS games it just doesn't work out for me. :p

    Ditto; and because they're related to RTS games I've stayed clear of MOBA games, even though I enjoy watching the matches play out.

    RTS.
    love them. I play the campaigns (with a lot of help from walkthroughs) but I suck at the multiplayer the most. I would love to play a great game of starcraft but I know that I suck in memorizing hotkeys and build orders.

    I get absorbed with expanding and upgrading my army and I build whatever I want without going for build strategies that you hear in SC tournaments >_<

    I hope I can practice more and improve with Heart of the Swarm

    The only RTSs that I completely finished are the first C&C, AOE 2: age of kings, and Warcraft 2.

    I don't *love* First Person Shooters as a genre (although there are individual ones I like); but I'd say that on the whole, I'm pretty bad at them. :p

    Platformers. I love them in theory, but sweet merciful Poseidon do I get frustrated fast...and yet I keep stubbornly chugging along, so sure that I'm going to like the Explorer path. :rolleyes:

    Did you play them on the consoles before switching to the PC?

    The reason I asked is because FPS's on the console actually provide a form of "cheating" to hit the target because it's much harder to be precise on a controller. On a PC, that's turned off because the mouse is very precise.

    RTS
    I seriously love the zerg and enjoyed playing Starcraft so much...but I just could never quite comprehend/ get the skill level to make full use of the games features and never made it as far as I would have liked.

    This goes for Dawn of War as well!

    I'm gonna hop on that RTS bandwagon. I did all right with the first entries in the field. For example, I loved the Myth games from Bungie, but something happened along the way, and the games started to get away from me. It must be that I prefer to sit back and think through my strategies. That's why I love the current XCOM game so much. So good to see that make a come back.

    Fighting games...minus Smash Bros. I just can't get into the infinite combo meta. Don't have the reflexes or the memory to do it!

    Fighting games. I also don't really love sports games but I've always enjoyed playing them with my dad or cousins. I just wish I wasn't so horrible at 90% of them.... NBA Jam seems to be the only exception.

    Well I've just started playing The Banner Sage and have never played a turn based strategy game like it before. I love it, but I'm woefully bad and each defeat crushes a small part of my soul.

    And then came the online game vs real people :p

    For me too RTS, campaign and vs comps are do-able, but once i get to fight REAL people i suddenly realise i'm <REDACTED>ty as hell.
    Only RTS i could play vs real people was Dawn of War 40k (just because i could finaly remember which building belonged to which key, and i felt super! :cool: )
