Horror; Dark Fantasy; weird collusions of genres, dark westerns, historical sci-fi, <insert setting here>-punk, etc.
In Nomine and D&D back in sixth grade. Since then I've played and run a great deal of things across the board: Indie RPGs (Dogs in the Vineyard, Polaris, etc.), mainstream titles (WoD, GURPS, Pathfinder), homebrews and playtests.
D10 or D20, though I love experimental and new systems like Don't Rest Your Head's fusion of D6 and ante-up, or Dog in the Vineyard's betting system.
Aside from resources like TV Tropes, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Wikipedia, and any other relevant source for research and flavor for characters or worlds I'm building, RPG.net is reliable. Errant Dreams; http://philgamer.wordpress.com; Mr. Gone's Character Sheets; etc.
I've been a gamer and storyteller since the sixth grade when my older brother drew me into a game of In Nomine. There I played a matronly secretary for a foppish angelic detective with a mean left hook and a heavy handbag. Oh, recent Austin walk-in!
