I have always been a fan of puzzle games. I had Tetris and Dr. Mario on my NES, was extremely good at Columns on my Genesis and sunk countless hours into Bejeweled. They are a good, often semi-mindless way to kill some time. RPG's are probably my favorite video game genre, however. The blending of puzzle and RPG in Puzzle Quest was a lot of fun when I first gave it a shot on my PSP a few years ago, and I have enjoyed a lot of similar titles since. Of those, Gyromancer has been among my favorites.
It's fun being the bad guy. A lot of people who get a chance in games with moral choices go to the dark side in Mass Effect or Fallout. There are some titles completely designed around this idea such as Dungeons and Overlord, though their degree of success can be debated. Hoard embraces this role though as you play the part of a dragon who spews fire and collects gold and princesses every chance you get. I picked this particular title up off of Steam fairly cheaply awhile back and have enjoyed it for the most part.
