Which do you prefer more?
I like both, but gots to go with the sci fi.
Two of my favorite stories are fantasy (including #1 - LOTR), but I like the sci fi genre better.
in for sci-fi
technology and space travel > magic and goblins
I had to vote Fantasy because Im big into table top role playing games and the best ones IMO are the fantasy oriented ones. However, my favorite Table Top RPG is Shadowrun, which is both hi fantasy and hi sci-fi, so it makes the choice tough.
Had to go for Sci-Fi, even though Fantasy is a VEEEEERY close second...
Its so very hard to choose... i've got sci-fi and fantasy books, games, movies, etc that I absolutely love so its hard to pick between them; think I gotta go with fantasy by the smallest of margins though
man, that is tough, I 'll have to say sci-fi if for no other reason then because there seem to be more sci-fi movies
depends on the day?
That's like asking which is your favorite ice-cream, & then having your two top choices mentioned.... sometimes you got to go with vanilla, sometimes chocolate-peanut butter, ya know what I mean?
There is just no way I can choose
I can't choose either.
Fantasy, i'm an avid reader of Dungeons & Dragon based fiction, played D&D religiously until I was in about the 7th grade.
Played all the D&D computer games too.
i used to read a lot more sci-fi, now i read a lot more fantasy
nobody likes vanilla...
Are you kidding? I drive everyone crazy, I have to get French Vanilla Ice Cream probly 'bout half the times I go out.... of course, pixie's are nuts
hell yes to rpg's
My friends and I play DND, but I bought Star Wars RPG and it is pretty kick ass, even though everyone just wants to be jedi's. Its really cool if you can get into character
Fantasy, I would say about 90% of the books I get are fantasy novels. I think the biggest problem (until LotR) was that most of the Fantasy movies suck. For as much as I love the genre I only own a few Fantasy movies. Excalibur, Conan, and the LotR flicks, oh and the original Highlander; but that is almost SciFi because it's set in modern times (except for the flashbacks).
I have to say I've been developing a taste for Modern/Urban Fantasies like those written by Charles DeLint and one by Raymond Feist (Faerie Tale).
I like sci-fi, but not all that often, or when I do, it's a blend of sci-fi and fantasy, only now and then do I go for full on sci-fi and when I do, it's almost always written by a woman
i picked sci-fi just because it seems like fantasy, although uber-interesting, seems to become repetitive...it just seems like everything's copying lotr after a while...i enjoy sci-fi role playing more also (ie, fallout, KOTOR > NWN, Baldur's Gate)
