Games that click

What I like:

1. Customizable characters
2. Real time action
3. Variety in levels and encounters.
4. Roleplaying game
5. Bosses you don't have to grind to beat.
6. Save-anywhere function.
7. Loot

Finest examples: Diablo and Elder Scrolls.

What I dislike:

1. Sneaking
2. Platform jumps
3. Combo Button Mashers
4. Random encounters
5. Linear level design
6. "Beat this boss to advance"

Examples: Super Mario Bros. and the early FF games.
