Just wondering, as per the norm, what your favorite game(s) are by genre.
For me, I'd say that-
Might and Magic 6
Final Fantasy 6
Not a big fan of these but
Super Mega Baseball (Need the second one)
Sim City franchise
Shooter (not sure if this counts) -
Guilty Gear franchise
Dust An Elysium Tale
That's all I can think of right now. What's your favorite by genre?
Also, for what you all have REALL come here for, the small GA's I promised.
Comment has been collapsed.
Adventure games: The Cat Lady, Grim Fandango, Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within
RPG: The Witcher 3 (obvious, I know), Planescape: Torment, The Banner Saga
Action-adventure or something like that: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
And that's probably it, my genre preferences are not really diverse.
Baldur's Gate 1&2
I don't play it anymore, but spent a lot of time in Championship Manager 2/3/4/'04
The Settlers 3. I'd be over the moon if they remastered it with modern AI. I still sometimes play this and setup 6-7 AI players to play in alliance against me. Maybe someone has suggestions how to scratch that itch? :)

Great topic. Having said that, I'm the type of person that could spend 5 hours doing this, so for my own sanity, I'm gonna dumb this down a lot. Whittled each one down quite a bit, which was extremely difficult & unsatisfying.
