When I play a game I look for 2 things. Engaging story and entertaining gameplay.
I have not really played handheld games since the age of 13 on account of my hands being too big and it hurts to curl my fingers to press the buttons. Yet I was considering for a while that I might get a Playstation Vita simply for the Uncharted game it is supposed to launch with. Considering the selling point for me on the Uncharted series is story though, and also the fact that the Vita will cost more than my PS3 did, I think I will watch a playthrough and be happy.
I have an aversion towards 1st person shooters. The main reason being that I get extremely nauseous after playing for more than 5 minutes. Another reason is because I find a lack of variety in them. Point, shoot, get killed, respawn and try again all the while listening to some 12 year old call you things you wouldn't even call your brother in a bout of sibling rivalry. Sometimes the story will make the single player mode worthwhile but I find that rare.
I also have an aversion towards turn based games, usually JRPGs like Final Fantasy. I am terrible at strategy and simply react, thereby losing many many fights. I'm also incredibly impatient and do not wish to wait my turn.
I do enjoy some RPG elements such as leveling up, upgrading a character, even customizing and such. However I hate skill trees or whatever you want to call them. I hate those webs of abilities to unlock where you choose which direction to branch in. Not only does it wear my patience I also feel as certain degree of anxiety as to whether I chose the correct ability to upgrade or unlock.
