I don't even remember the last time I played a mecha game. I think Lost Planet was the last one. Unless you count RTS titles with mechas, in which case C&C3 KW has a bunch of them.

Hard to say with CnC. Its like asking if F.E.A.R. is a mech game. I'd at least say that Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander are mech games because of piloted robots being a focus.

Its been awhile since I played a mecha game really, there really needs to be more of them on Steam.

Games I've got there and played include BATTLETECH and Hardcore Mecha.

They actually added a couple of Gundam games, one for the Breaker series and one for G Generation, the only problem was the ones they chose are the shittiest examples from the whole runs.

Chaos Sector / Chaos Galaxy are games obviously inspired by Super Robot Wars (though not quite the same kind of tactical experience).
Basically strategy games where you build up your forces of battleships and mechs to take over enemy planets.

The setting is very "space ancient Chinese empire which is on its last legs and needs to deal with rebels and invaders gnawing at the cracks", get to choose from various factions to play as.

Been playing MASS Builder.
Its kind of shallow in its action gameplay but the mech designing gimmick is fun.

Panzer Paladin is a good retro platformer where you're a super fighting android piloting a giant robot armed with various destructible melee weapons you can break to cast spells.

In-game there's actually an editor that lets you design and stat out weapons pixel by pixel which then can be dropped by minibosses.

Also you can jump out of your mech to fight on foot with a laser-whip, its required for some sections where you use the whip to swing between hooks but it can also come into play when the robot gets taken out of action like in a boss fight, possible to continue on foot and win.

What kind of games do people like best in the mecha genre?
Straight up action shooter/slashers?
Tactical games? Or wider strategy games where giant robots are the preferred weapon?
Rpgs? Simulations?

Do people like games where it features both the mech you pilot and your character getting out of their machine to do stuff on foot?

The ability to tower over and trample enemy soldiers and tanks and unleash untold devestation with shoulder or arm mounted rocket launchers, destroying numerous enemy troops with just one shot. The feeling of power, basically.

Metal Fatigue is a pretty good mech-focused RTS. The gimmick of being able to individually redesign your Combots with limbs you tear off your enemies was fun.

So would you get the same thrill from playing as any old giant monster?
Or does the giant robot aesthetic specifically make things work for you.
