I had play a few first person shooters years ago, I never got fully interested in it tbh. And I don't hate the genre, I just don't like ones like CoD for example

Action, adventure, RPG, and platforming. Can't choose more than one in the vote, unfortunately.
I'm not too into FPS games, though I don't despise the genre itself.

I don't really understand why you have "shooters" and "first-person shooters" both as two separate options, because they can both easily be condensed into "shooters". Also, you're missing some rather obvious ones, like action-adventure, which is pretty significant because the Zelda series is that genre. Also, this should really allow for multiple options because you can like more than one genre.

As for the question at hand, speaking of which, my favourite ones are arcade, RPGs, platformers and action-adventure.

Here's why I made "Shooters" & "First-Person shooters" separate options. Shooters (Touhou for example), is mostly shoot shitz and collect power-ups.
While First-Person Shooters are shoot in a first person view.

What you refer to as Shooters is generally known as Shoot-em-ups. Also, Touhou is generally considered a bullet hell game and not a shooter.

We should honestly be allowed to vote more than one category, it can be too hard to choose just one.

I think most people would rather have to vote again than be limited to 1 choice that could be agonizingly difficult to make. Also you should allow re-voting since this is a thing were our views can change.
