    Christ almighty, I despise this one. Every year, FIFA (sorry Americans, no Madden crap here in the UK) gets another release, and...

    WOW HOLY SHIT THEY UPDATED THE ROSTER!!!111!1!!1!11!ELEVENTYONE

    My mate's one of the biggest FIFA addicts around, and even he's said 'the upgrades and improvements were a bit shit this time around overall, I've hardly played it'.

    RE: Least Favourite Game Genre

    Mantis, I have to admit your criticisms of the RTS genre are valid even if I don't agree with your overall opinion of it. I'm going to make a recommendation, though.

    There's one RTS called Defcon: Everybody Dies. There's no base building, no unit building, no cheesy cutscenes, none of that. You choose a faction, gain access to its conventional and nuclear forces, and attempt to rain as much nuclear death on your enemies as possible, while taking as little in return as possible. At the default setting, it's slow-paced compared to pretty much every other RTS out there (the Youtube video is playing the game at the highest speed setting - 20 times as fast as the normal setting - that you can switch to any time, useful if nothing's happening). Just because it's slow doesn't mean it's easy, though. It just means you'll have to spend time making difficult decisions rather than Starcraft's "I've got to get 300 actions per minute" nonsense.

    I'm not saying you'll love it, I'm not saying it'll get you into the genre, but if you ever try another RTS, make it this one. You can get the demo for free.

    I've never been a fan of the RTS genre. Back in the 90's Command and Conquer, it's spin offs and plenty of clones hit the gaming scene. I remember how crazy everyone was going for these games. I tried my best to get into them, but to no avail. They were just dead boring to me and I lost interest very quickly. Perhaps it's because I was playing a lot of racing games at the time and just needed that adrenaline rush.

    I don't like FPS games. At all. For one, I hate shooting things, and also...I just really don't like first-person viewpoints half the time. The only FP game I like is Minecraft, pretty much. But add in shooting and...I'll avoid it.

    I also just don't like any games with heavy blood I can't turn off though ^^; I'd prefer an FPS that's low on blood than like, a version of Mortal Kombat that has no way to turn it off...

    I used to like FIFA while it was good. It was enjoyable, competitive, and it wasn't just the same game every single year as is the case with the latest games. Now it's the game I hate the most. They broke it.

    As for my least favourite genre though... I don't know, I honestly play everything as long as the gameplay is engaging and the story (if existent) is good enough.

    I don't really like FPS. But I think part of that is the people that tend to play them.
    FPSs themselves are fun. One of my friends had Black Ops 2, and I loved the zombie mode, especially "The Five" map where you played as JFK, Nixon, Chavez, and the Sec. of the State in the Pentagon as a zombie outbreak occurs.
    However, the community in most FPSs is so damn toxic, it's really hard to get into them. I played Titanfall for about 20 minutes once, and in that time, I heard 13 year old kids who hadn't hit puberty yet speaking the f word more than a drunken sailor.

    I will say, though, I love the Borderlands series, even though it is technically an FPS.
