I selected Sci-Fi, but not because it's the genre I play the most.
For some strange reason, one of my two most played genres is actually Western. I don't watch many Westerns at all. But it's probably because it's an uncomplicated genre.
The other most-played genre is zombies, because zombies make great hazards that can really complicate one's normal routine of shopping (aka foraging for supplies) and shooting people in the face who want to take your stuff.
So I naturally went with Sci-Fi. Why? Because 5150: No Limits contains rules for ship fighting, boarding, multiple races, trading, legal, investigations, and enhancements. It has the most comprehensive world in terms of New Hope City as well as method for exploring other worlds. It contains rules for military actions as well as individual and gang or group-based actions. In other words, it's the most comprehensive rules system. That way, if you're giving me only one genre, Sci-Fi is the one where I can take that base and extend it to Western, Zombies, and any other genre I choose to play.
Edit: Oh, there is one other genre I would seriously vote for: pulp. I love the way the clue-base mechanics allow you to chain multiple encounters to achieve a final objective. Sci-Fi already covers that with the investigation system.

I've been reading WWII history since I was 13. Better still, since retiring I've been able to take battlefield study tours of all the Canadian battle fields from WWI and WWII. So I'm a NUTS man all the way.
