I enjoy good scifi and fantasy that exemplifies certain qualities:
- Great World Building
- Lord of the Rings is often cited one of the best examples of great world building, but I think other franchises have been able to do the same even if not to the same extent. Some examples include the Elder Scroll Series and Star Trek
- Good character interaction and growth: I’m particularly drawn by experiences that build up characters who work together for a common goal, often on a team or teamwork based environment. Seeing the character interaction and growth of these characters and their interactions expand, contract, and change is always fascinating and usually enjoyable.
- Once again I lean towards Star Trek: The Next Generation as a prime example, the Battlestar Galactica reboot I feel also has made this a primary point in how we see the different characters act and respond according to their static or changing goals or mindsets.
- Fascinating and extensive mythos
- Enjoyable stories and experiences
