I grew up on games like Civ, Planetscape Torment, Baldur's Gate, Space Empires, Age of Empires, etc. FPS didn't interest me until they got realistic and large enough to be immersive and platformers have always been my least liked game genre ever. I never owned a console...partly because all the games imo sucked balls.
The only consoles I will probably ever buy are Nintendo's. I really like the emphasis on playing video games with others. I've gotten really bored of playing video games alone, to a point where it feels like a chore or a waste of time. It's just so much more enjoyable with others (the only exception for me right now is SSBB Project M since it's becoming fun to try to master some higher level techniques even though I don't ever plan on being a competitive smash player). Bit.Trip runner I guess is an exception too (Runner 2 is pretty fun).
