    Action RPGs because in a good number of cases, you have to use strategy and think on your feet at the same time. I also like how they are reflex based in a good number of situations. FFXV.....mauahaahahahahahaha.

    Anyone that let's me make my character. I went with MMORPG because that's what I've been playing the most.

    I can't really decide
    JRPG's are the one's I've played the most and while I have fond memories of the good times I can't really get involved enough to play one now. Too much grinding and I dont really find random encounters fun anymore.

    WRPG's can be fun but they have to be really good to hook me for more than 10 minutes.

    Never really been into tactical rpgs but if the right one came along that could change.

    Action RPG's again depend strongly on the actual quality of the RPG.

    Dungeon crawling RPG's do not interest me.

    I've enjoyed free MMORPG's but the monthly subscriptions are a major turnoff for me.

    Alpha protocol is the only mixed Genre RPG I've played and I really enjoyed it.

    JRPGs, easily. I still countr tactical RPGs like FFT and Tactics Ogre or Action RPGs like Kingdom Hearts as JRPGs, though, so it's kinda cheating. But if I had do separate them and choose just one, I still think I'd choose JRPGs if only because Dragon Quest exists and I am showering it with my undying love.

    Where's the "Turn-Based RPG" option?!
    It doesn't matter if it's JRPG or WRPG - it must be turn-based!

    I side pretty strongly with JRPGs overall, though this is largely due to most of my favorite RPGs being JRPGs more than due to particularly favoring anything about JRPGs themselves.

    I voted tactical to give it some love, but I'm pretty torn among the first four options. I love them all! I probably lean most on JRPGs and Tactical RPGs.

    CRPG with ARPG in a very VERY close second.

    Oh man, it'd be JRPGs for Final Fantasy and Star Ocean, but there's an old game from the 90s, a WRPG called Might and Might: World of Xeen, that game alone makes WRPGs my second favorite.

    Tough one. I really love JRPGs and WRPGs, but I feel WRPGs tend to offer greater customisation of your character, allowing you to craft your own story. Dragon Age and Mass Effect rank very highly.

    Action RPGs are fine as well, I guess. I prefer pausing combat when I want to, which I'm not sure is always a feature of them (I can't even think of any examples of ARPGs that I've played).
