First of all, thanks for your comments, and I apologize for a late reply because I was unable to log into my account.
If we're discussing 2D vs. 3D, I'd like to say that for action games in particular I prefer 2D, for the same reason as Nytegard, that I get motion sickness from some 3D games. Especially first person ones where there are fast movements required (i.e. action games). Games like Half-life and Vindictus I just can't play due to nausea, and I had some uncomfortable moments during Zelda: Twilight Princess and Skyrim, though I finished both of those. (Well, it's not really possible to finish Skyrim, but close enough.) For most game types I like 2D and 3D equally well, though the 2D has to be high res cartoons/anime, I detest pixel art. On the other hand for a sandbox game I think 3D is probably a better choice than 2D because it's better suited to user customization and playing a life in a virtual world.
Yes, we are discussing 2Dv3D as well as your favorite game genres. I personally like 2D more than 3D in most games, so I can't agree with most of what you said, especially pixel art. I adore pixel art, but for sandbox games, 3D might be a better choice than 2D because not only does it add an extra dimension to the game, it does make it more of a simulator.
You left fighting games off the list.
Currently the only game I am playing is Persona 4 Arena.
Why? Because my coworkers play it.
After losing at lunch every day I secretly bought a PlayStation 3 just for that game and trained on my own so that suddenly I could surprise them with my abilities one day.
Just like old times… …(Super Smash Bros. Melee and losing to my friends.)
I added fighting, but I was never really into those games so it didn't come to mind when I was making the poll. But hey, it's a game genre.
