A: Technically, both are correct to use, but when using "like", it tends to sound like everyone already knows the names and you merely list them. "Such as" has a more informing and educating tone to it. So I prefer "such as" in this case😊 but technically they're both correct to use
Q: A: Do you like heavy metal?
B: Not really. Personally I think it's too nosy. does this sound natural?
A: If the question is about an adjective, then it’s a grammatically correct answer. (You can’t say “I very like heavy metal” but you can say, for example, “I’m very sad”.) Still, it’s not the most natural for US English.

Ex:

Even though this is grammatically correct, I wouldn’t say it. I’d still say “not really”.
