Text based ones with autonomus mobs, as opposed to mass simulations or
3D graphics extravganzas.  I feel there's a lot of life left in text
based interfaces and that they give the best return on effort.  They
also tend to give far richer games than most of the graphical ones I've
seen.  Good text is fairly easy to do, but good graphics?
