First I want to say, good thread topic.
I like the games that are open ended and have almost infinite playability, games like Oblivion and Morrowind. RPG's were you can make a character and play for 700+ hours with him/her and never get bored. The really awesome thing about the elder scrolls games is thier mod-ability. The fact that Bethesda created and released construction sets for the games makes them virtually unlimited in the amount of storytelling, playability, customization and immersiveness. If your computer is capable and you have the correct software, Oblivion can be made to your whim. You can create custom weapons and equipement, NPCs, quests, environments, pretty much everything to look and play exactly as you want it too.
I have a preference for first person games. Not just Oblivion, I like FPS games, I am itching to get Fallout3, and Battlefield 2 has been on my 'currently playing' list since I bought it. As well as the newer Frontlines: Fuel of War. That has some pretty nice visuals and is fun to play, but it lacks the sheer openness and versatility of the Battlefield games, it's a bit more linear and in some ways limited. It definitely has a good story though.
Dawn of War and it's expansions is the only RTS game that I can say I really enjoy playing since I got bored with Starcraft. All I can say really is that it's 40K. I like it.
