Re: Genres (second attempt)

Sectioned? What does that mean?

I call Tetris and Columns and all other similar games Drop games.

Strategy/Turn-Based - Advanced Wars, Venus Wars, Romance of the Three Kingdoms

RPG/Turn-Based - Shining Force

Board/Party Games - Monopoly, Chess, Darts, Mario Party

Matching - Mahjong

Interactive Movie - Space Ace, Dragon's Lair

Casino/Cards - Obvious

Game Show - Family Feud, Jeopardy

Educational - Math Blaster

Detective/Mystery/Espionage/Spy - ??

Horror - ??

Pinball - Crueball, Sonic Spinball

Rhythm - Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero



Paddle/Light Gun/Mouse - Pong, Duck Hunt,
Interactive Fiction - Zork, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

I don't think your simulation examples are good. Budokan, Civilization, F-15 Strike Eagle. Rampart is Strategy/Shooter/Real-Time/Drop/Awesome

Adult - Bubble Bath Babes (it is a clone of Mermaids of Atlantis), Leisure Suit Larry

Managerial - Aerobiz, SimCity, Populus (also sometimes classified as God)

Cyberpunk - Shadowrun (I think this genre is too narrow to be a real genre)

Sure, that is one of my favorite genres. But it is rare. Moai Kun, Lemmings, The Lost Vikings and I think Out of This World and Prince of Persia would be in this category too.

Not sure if Horror, Cyberpunk, and Detective should be genres. They are too general.

I'd say that rhythm games are unique enough to merit their own genre. Pinball, on the other hand, is really difficult to classify.

While technically it could fit any of the three RPG genres there might be enough of these to merit their own genre; RPG/Raising maybe?

Re: Genres (second attempt)

Call me out of the loop here Tenser, but what is it we are actually doing in this thread?
Are we just naming games that are hard to categorize, cause I'm pretty sure you got that down for the most part.

I think rhythm has it's own genre.

Re: Genres (second attempt)

@Tenser: I agree. Most of the ones in my first post were themes and not genres.

@Tagen: Survival Horror would be a theme and themes should get their own topic.

@Kraemer: Wow all of DDQ is coming back at once. Welcome back. Hope you stay around this time. This topic is for defining genres. The games mentioned should mostly be archetypal examples. Perfect fits.

This is the "second attempt" because the first one turned into 8 pages of off-topic arguing and was locked.

I think rhythm should get it's own genre. And not fall under strategy. What strategy do you use in those games?

Tamagotchi, Dogz, Petz etc might should get their own genre but I am sure that Tenser will say they are simulation or something.

I think pinball might should get it's own or be Sports/Pinball. I know, not much of a sport but it fits there better than other places.
