Which almost everyone does.

I do it.

It's why I love science fiction. There is a huge variety of subgenres included, whereas fantasy doesn't have much.

Werewolves and vampires still fit in the fantasy category nonetheless.

Fantasy is like comfort lit for me. I'm familiar with it, and I enjoy that, and I enjoy it.

Fantasy has plenty of subgenres, I think there is just too much emphasis on creating these sprawling stories that limits their appeal and ability to say "fuck it" and do something out of left field.

Fantasy, sci-fi, supernatural, horror all fall under speculative fiction.

Hate standard tolkien fantasy. There's so much more potential in the genre, like Exalted is a good example of.

Sci-fi, I think, has more diversity to it. I guess you could wish for more, but we still got everything from hard science over trans humanism to space opera in it. The "Space Marines vs. Aliens" genre is getting a tad trite in the video games industry tho.
