So I've seen many people that say their favourite games overall but I've always wondered what people's favourite games are in a particular genre. Here are some of my favourite games in a particular genre. Feel free to add your own genre.
Age of Mythology, played this game 7 years ago and am still playing it to this day.
Half-Life 2, master class in games design.
Portal 2, so funny and never got boring.
Uncharted 2, everything about it was incredible.
Oblivion, the world's scale mesmerized me.
GTA 4, having played through it again (my first play through was a rush) I realise how wonderfully crafted this game is.
