Most games fall within a particular category. Some bridge different gaming styles and, thus, could appear under more than one category simultaneously. And others pioneer new approaches to electronic entertainment. Those often fall outside of any pre-conceived genre. If such a title becomes popular enough that others try to duplicate the experience, a new genre comes into being.
In our Blog is a list of some of the most common video game with a description. This list is not comprehensive and is limited to larger classifications. It is easy to classify particular titles much more narrowly and, thus, create dozens of genres and/or sub-genres. However, this is an attempt to give a broader perspective of types of video games.
