Ah, video games. Some of the best so far: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Mass Effect, The Witcher and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I have quite high hopes for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which is supposed to come out 11.11.2011. And also for Mass Effect 3. For me the plot and deep, complex characters are maybe the most important things.
For this INFP I never entertained the video genre except for the Myst games. It was perfect for me. The Arcade games? Hmmm... I seem to be a bit addicted, built my own Arcade. Bejewelled Blitz, sheesh. I need to stop.
Also I never played this game but this video, I like (Kingdom Hearts?):
It appeals to my INFPness.
Currently playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution>>>>>
nothing beats the Sims. Tekken is great too, I love Law
even though they're the only two video games I know
beside that, it has a strong focus on puzzle-solving (rather than just killing and all that), and includes puzzles that actually require you to go outside of the game to solve (generally through web searches). improving your character is different, too, in that you dont properly level, but simply gain new skills (and it seems there's a large amount of freedom in how you can build your character).
Playing Deus Ex Human Revolution at the moment. The original title is one of my all time favorites and honestly, I'm really enjoying this prequel.
I mainly play shmups and arcade shooters like Mushihimesama Futari, Ketsui, ESPrade, Guwange etc etc. I really love CAVE games. I've been loving Akai Katana a lot lately.
Nier has some pretty epic moments and is a horribly overlooked game in my opinion. Great story and soundtrack.
INFPs would probably enjoy visual novels. Yes there is a lot of porn type stuff in many of them, but most are about love, romance etc. They can be pretty terrible though.
