Working professionally as a game artist I try to expose myself to as many kinds of games as possible. I used to find myself getting lost in MMO's for months or years at a time. It was after all my interest in EverQuest that landed me my first job in the industry back in 2005 at SOE.
I'm not sure why but I seem to be on a bit of a Nintendo kick recently (Mario in particular). There is something comfortably nostalgic about Nintendo that keeps bringing us children of the 80's back for rehash after rehash. I have no idea what the Mario and Zelda titles will look like at E3 in a couple weeks but they are already on my purchase list.
Guess the plumber wins this round as well............
