No lead protagonist: Rise of Nations.

Limited/no violence: The Stanley Parable, though I haven't played it myself, strangely.

No human characters: I would say Talos Principle, but I haven't even seen it, so the closest I can get to is Skylanders. The only human characters are the big good Master Eon and the villain Kaos.

Currency stat: Not sure I understand this one, but I'll stick to RoN for this one.

Cool vehicle you can't control: Half-Life 2. I want a hunter-chopper, damn it!

No max: Doom. I never really feel compelled to max any game 100%.

No computer, phone, or console: DnD.

 It would have to be a boardgame since im a fan of cardboard gaming, if i have to choose a favorite, it would had to be Stronghold, sadly it's been gathering dust for the past months since we don't play it anymore

try to answer each question with a different game :) I know it's easy to blurt out X-COM for #1 and #4

 

1) Stellaris (also one of my all time favourites)

2) Tough one, seems I like bloodshed. No violence would be Sim City 2

3) Endless Legend.

4) Path of Exile. Most innovative currency system I've seen in any game

5) Half Life 2. Pretty sure you don't get to control those big fuck off walkers

6) Doom. Not fussed if I leave a few monsters/secrets behind. Doom 2016 however ...

7) Dungeons and Dragons hand down but I do have a soft spot for 500

1. That's difficult but maybe rise of the triad?

2. Tough one, I've played a lot of games with violence... Never played this game but maybe Forza Hoirozan?

3. Another difficult one! Spyro

4. Grand theft auto 5

5. Metal gear solid one

6.  Final doom

7. DOOM

These probably change a bit with the passage of time:

 

- Does World of Warcraft count?

- Dance Dance Revolution

- Assuming that games with space ships have human pilots unless otherwise stated... Ms. Pac-Man?

- Like, where you get in-game money?  World of Warcraft.

- Warhammer 40K: Space Marine.  There's a segment with a titan.

- That's most of my favorite games for me

- Space Hulk board game

That was for the "No lead protagonists" one.  Figured a self-made player character didn't count :-P

this seems like the "what is your favorite rpg" question so i'll go with ff6.

- What's your favourite game that contains a cool as hell vehicle that you don't get to control?

this is really hard, honestly. i always wanted to drive that tank in RTCW. or maybe some of the giant imperial vessels of valkyria chronicles? I also always kinda wanted to drive HL2 APCs

doomactually probably duke3d since i usually put effort in trying to max levels in doom.

- What's your favourite game that you can play without a computer, phone or console?

i don't have a lot of experience with meatspace games, for now maybe something like sushi go. something quick to set up and play

guess I will answer my own questions

 

no lead protagonist: X-Com, the original. a squad-based tactics and base expansion game with replaceable units where you don't have to be successful in every mission.

low bloodshed: Troddlers. a puzzle-platformer with the best elements of Solomon's Key and Lemmings. there are some obstacles to dodge including cannons which is why it's not zero violence

no humans: Klonoa 2, another puzzle-platformer full of fuzzy mascot people and beautiful music

money & shop system: Chaos Engine, a top-down shooter with level designs about as logical as those in doom2.wad. the money system is interesting because your AI partner can pick it up - do you try to stop them grabbing coins where possible or do you allow them some so that you can improve their stats in the shop screen?

vehicle you don't get to play with: Albion; an RPG based around discovering the inhabitants of a new world and protecting them from an invasive mining mission. The game's story is centred around a spaceship called the Toronto, but despite your character being a pilot you never get to move it around :)))

game you wouldn't max: Earthbound, a sweet little RPG with some end-game items locked behind one-in-256 chance drop rates. i'll never find the motivation to acquire any of them

non-electronic game: Shadowrun, my favourite RPG setting. a cyperpunk dystopia setting with goblinized demihumans and slums for people not well-connected enough to be allowed ID. every video game ever made from its source material has posed you as the good guy trying to correct some injustice but the soul of the game is making a satirical suit character who acts like as much of a dickhead as possible, whose team eventually gets betrayed by an even bigger dickhead \o/ I love reading the expansion books too cos the creators clearly had a handle on positive anarchism and were socially aware of how bad big business can be

- What's your favourite game that has no lead protagonist?

    This is a hard one. I'd have to say CSGO, maybe Path Of Exile or Quake 3 Arena.

- What's your favourite game that has only a limited amount of bloodshed, or no violence at all?

    I usually play really violent games. Although the story has a lot of violence in it the gameplay doesnt, so F-Zero GX. (If that doesn't count then Idk, I don't really play any games that are violence-free.)

- What's your favourite game with no human characters in it?

    My original answer was going to be LOZ: Minish Cap by a technicality, but no. The Katamari series is hilarious, that's my pick. 

- What's your favourite game with a currency stat?

     Starcraft 2.

- What's your favourite game that contains a cool as hell vehicle that you don't get to control?

     It would be pretty cool to control the Forward Unto Dawn or the UNSC Infinity and fight with the Covenant Armada, so the Halo Series.

- What's your favourite game that you don't feel compelled to max or collect all the points items?

     Path Of Exile. its a fun game but much to complicated. As a new player if you don't use a youtube guide and go in blind you will not have a good time.

- What's your favourite game that you can play without a computer, phone or console?

     Magic The Gathering. Dominaria standard is the shittt

Assuming "roll your own party of adventurers" type games count, Might & Magic 2 probably.  Though it's been a dog's age since I actually played it, I sank a lot of hours into it back in the day.

I rarely give a damn about doing max items on anything unless there's a specific ending or something as a perk.
