Horror, cos that genre just has some of my favourite games, also there's walking sims, shooters, survival horror, plenty of variety.

RPGs, because I couldn't live without them, pretty much :)

Definitely stealth. All the games that I love have a stealth element, even if a mild one. A game without a stealth option just can never fully satisfy me.

Sneaking through an area and accomplishing objectives, without being detected and without killing any enemies is an amazing feeling that no other genre can replicate.

Got to go Puzzler’s myself - that way I get the abstracted ones (Tetris / Lumines / Puyo Puyo etc.), the Puzzle Platformers (Hue / Teslagrad et.al.) & the 3D Puzzlers (Portal / Superliminal / Turing Test etc.)

Very interesting topic. :-)

I would chose RPG's, they're just too awesome. Couldn't live without Skyrim and/or Soulsborne. 😂

I'm torn between VNs and JRPGs.

A lot of my favorite stories have come from VNs, there's tons of them, they span pretty much every genre of fiction, there's tons of really creative things people do with the medium to keep things interesting, there may eventually be new Utawarerumono games... naming VN as a genre kind of feels like cheating.

JRPGs are just wonderful. Sometimes they can be big, ridiculous and stupid as hell (in the best possible way). Sometimes they can epic and inspiring. Sometimes they can be Final Fantasy VI. I also really like a good grind, finding secret weapons that completely break the game, min/maxing and exploring every corner of every dungeon. Not fishing though. Fuck fishing. They also usually have the best music that's not made by Akira Yamaoka.

Rhythm Games. No other genre gives me quite the same release of pent-up energy and stress while allowing me to escape whatever is on my mind temporarily. Plus, I get to interact with my favorite songs at an intimate level that is second only to playing them on actual instruments.

I'd personally choose RPGs. If I need to be more specific, turn-based RPGs. I find myself losing hours in them and at least I could still play games like Pokemon, Persona, older FFs, Bravely Default, Undertale, Mother, Earthbound, Digimon, Paper Marios, Fire Emblem, Disgaea, etc.

 

I guess my only worry is that the genre will go instinct, but at least I can still go back to my old games and do pokemon nuzlockes, stat boost in Disgaea to beat superbosses, or something like that.

JRPGs. It feels like it's the only genre I play nowadays.

JRPGs...& Visual Novels. Don't think I could choose between the two.

Racing games because why the hell not? They've always been my favorite. And in the case of a gamingpocalypse, they're the ones I can see myself enjoying the most. From shitty ones to masterpieces, I'd be open to playing them all. They are the one genre that has always stuck with me ever since I was a child, whether if it was at the arcade, on a PC, or on a cousin's console, I've always enjoyed playing these.

Tough choice, I'm torn between a lot of genres... if this will happen, I will stick to GTA, at least it has most all in one including driving and shooting and flying.

Anything I want, because I can’t fancy myself allowing anybody to decide what I’m ”allowed” to play. I’ve got a pretty vivid imagination, but it doesn’t go that far. :)

I'd likely go with this as well.  So many great stealth games out there - Splinter Cell, Metal Gear, Tenchu, Aragami, Dishonored, The Last Of Us, Assassin's Creed, Hitman - all these games give you the choice of "ghosting" your way through most areas, or going Rambo on the enemies (though this won't work as well on Hitman or Splinter Cell).  But, sneaking into an area, doing what you have to do, and getting out without the enemies ever knowing you were there is a great accomplishment.  Definitely takes more skill than simply murdering everyone in your path.

RPGs are my most played genre anyway.  And I might actually finish a couple if I can't play anything else.  I couldn't not play Final Fantasy.

I would pick roguelikes. Games like Binding of Isaac and Enter the Gungeon are just endlessly re-playable imo.

RPGs. They are the only genre I can keep playing for hours straight like The Witcher 3, Fallout and The Outer Worlds.
