I can't figure out why I don't like platformers. With adventures and RPGs, it's because I don't think in the same way as the people who wrote the games. The puzzles just don't make sense to me most of the time. Maybe I'm too logical... 'cos my lateral thinking abilities don't kick when I'm playing them.
I'm suprised that people still play them!
I'll stick to FPS games and the odd bit of programming. Give me a flak cannon and some body armour and I'm happy....
