Final Fantasy.
Don't know what the hell it's about, and I'm not interested in finding out.

CoD, BF, MoH, because the genre disgusts me.

Final Fantasy...I just don't dig Japanese games.

CoD, BF, MoH, for the same reason as Nate.

Sports games, because sports are boring.

Same as Nate on the cod clones.

*gets in line behind the Call of Duty crowd* Enjoyed the first two. Can't stand the others.

The Sims and sports games are up there too. I mean, if I want to live life or play sports, I go outside.

Oh yeah sports games. Except Bloodbowl, that's a sports game right?

All jrpgs. They're rarely different. Same gameplay since the 80s, same generic Japanese characters, horrible voice acting, poor animations, poor graphics list goes on.

Hmmm. Probably Tomb Raider, maybe? We'll see what happens when the reboot comes around.

Gran Turismo, Forza and racing games in general, unless it's something like Burnout.

All sports games.
All turn based game.
All rts games.
More general than you asked but is enough information to answer you.

Any sports games because I just find sports to be boring in general in the gaming field and out.

Call of Duty, I tried World At War and the First Black Ops. I tried both for 30 minutes to an hour and couldn't stand either.

Most zombie games, I just don't care for them(except the Walking Dead).

I'd play football or basketball games, i'd even consider hockeygames, but you can add basketball and soccer to games I will never play.

Here's another one, Gran Turismo and every other racing sim. Arcade Racings OK, but sims... no...

Also airplane sims.. in fact anything with an airplane in first person. (Please note spaceships in first person are Ok)

Halo, sports games, fallout I don't even understand this one I love the elder scrolls but fallout and red dead just don't do it for me for some reason even tho they are pretty much the same style

Wait, you don't like any game where you kill others?

IE most games that deal with combat?

In God of War, all you do is kill people, good and bad.
