Well, I mostly play strategy games, both turn-based and also RTS. I tend to play Supreme Commander (or, rather, Forged Alliance) quite a lot with my friends online (although I don't play much single player).

RPGs and fighting games, but I'm not that good on the latter, heheheh...

Since I lack any kind of gaming console and my PC isn't that powerful, I also only tend to play PC games or old ones (read: which my computer can emulate).

For me it's tied between Pokémon and Megami Tensei. I just started at Megaten but I'm already liking it very much. I tried to get into Final Fantasy, finished playing the first one but gave up on the second. Not to my taste, sadly.

final fantasy 2 sucks, play 6 (that's 3 on the super nintendo) it's a master piece.

smt is cool, lotta smt games on the hand helds, i love them all.

i like digimon more then pokemon though.

Digimon is a better franchise in world building, characters and anime, but Pokémon takes the cake in gaming. Digimon games are okay, but not awesome.

digimon innovates Gab, and seriously the dawn and dusk games blow pkm out of the water, it took the pkm formula and expanded it.

Dawn and Dusk are the best, that I confess (though Digimon World 2 will always be my favorite, handsdown), but I personally don't think that it's better than Pokémon games, but then again, lolopinions.

well pokemon is a collector game, and imo the designs have steadily gotten ridiculous.

Yeah, as I said, Digimon is better at worldbuilding (one true partner > countless mons at your disposition) but the designs were ALWAYS ridiculous (Koffing, Voltorb and Magnemite, for example).

yeah, still the designs have lost realism as they've gone on, plus the number of "legendary" pokemon is a bit crazy

Ah, OK.

I was never too fond of Starcraft, honestly, it seemed to involve too much micromanagement and too much rapid clicking....
