What's your favorite game genres? Of course not all games fit into one of the main genres, but it's hard to tell what the most popular are with our still young site. It does seem like the following are good bets though:

Online Multiplayer

RPGs and adventure titles, usually for their stories. Turn-based combat is a plus, but I like all sorts.
Resource management/building for actual gameplay.
Tower-defense and Civ-style strategy games.
Horror and survival games are rapidly growing on me, but it seems like there aren't as many great ones.
