It has changed a bit with the introduction of new genres, or rather with what I consider good games in the new genres.

Platformers is the first type of game I enjoyed with Super Mario Bros 3 taking the crown. Did not get into 3D platformers until Mario Galaxy. Enjoyed a bit of Crash Bandicot but Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Spyro, Jak and Dexter, Sonic adventure, Mario Sunshine and a few others I tried but did not enjoy.

In the late 90s and early 00s I played mostly PC games. Action RPG with Diablo holding the torch. RTS like Warcraft 2, Starcraft (peak), Settlers 2 and Warcraft 3. Slowly turned away from RTS and instead looked into turn based strategy with Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and 3 (peak). Later when I got my own handheld GBA Advance Wars and Fire Emblem lead the way.

When me and my brothers bought a GameCube party games like Smash Bros Melee and Mario Kart Double Dash!! was what was up. Games multiple people could play on the sofa.

Had a one off with the open world games with Skyrim and have not enjoyed one game in the genre since then

Linear Adventure and Action adventure games grabbed me early with (most of) Zelda games. Scooped all DS adventure games like Phoenix Wright, Hotel Dusk, Another Code and a few other lesser know titles. Played just about every adventure game on PS3 Heavy Rain, The uncharted Series, Resident Evil 4, The last of Us.

Now I mainly play auto battler on my phones, action adventures on my PS5 and board games and retro on my Mac.
