Default What type of GM game do you like most?

What kind of Game Maker game do you like most? As in, genre, Maze, Platform, Puzzle, Arcade, etc.

No FPS or MMORPG, this is only gonna be my second project!

This is to gather data for my next project. Top results in 10 days will be used, but it will still be an open poll for other Game Maker game makers.

I would have put this in Making Dumb Games, but it has to be a poll for me to see the results (easily, that is), so if a Moderator/Administrator can move it to MDG, I would be most grateful.

So vote away!

EDIT: Darn! Forgot Maze games! If you want that, just say so in your post.

I don't like Gamemaker games. OK, some are good, but the majority aren't.

I like adventure games- and most of those are platform.
Both of the games that I've made with GM so far have been on that genre.

I like maze games, by the way, as they are easy to make and fun to play. But that's me.

A platform adventure? But you voted platform action. Hmm...

Same thing with (let's say) drawings? Some are good, but...
GML is a lot like C++ except it's easier, so you can train with it (and then move on to more challenging languages).

By the way, because of the banning of Zmansam, his vote is now unused. And, I am going to go ahead and start on the project. Or, I would. It's a tie between 2d shooter and Platform Adventure. Therefore, I will have the final say on what I will do. Based on my experience at game maker game making, the number of games I've made, and the difficulty of each project, I will make a 2d shooter. If you voted (for any genre) before this post, you may give ideas.

Do you mean top-down, or side-on?

Side-on. The style of game that 1945 is. I assume you know what that is, considering you have GM.

Lol, actually I was thinking of a completely different type of game. You should be able to make that pretty well.
