    Yes, but away from the graphics side, I prefer games that have at least somewhat realistic physics. I would contend that physics is just as important as math (esp. since there are good 3d engines on the market that can be licensed, eliminating some of the headache of coding the graphics all yourself)

Ah, but now we're talking about games that you like, rather than games programming in general. I'll reply by contending that J. Random Games Programmer is more likely to be called upon to do math (linear algebra, most likely) than physics, and add that there are a lot of physics engines on the market that can be licensed (poke around http://gamasutra.com/ and see what I mean).
