Over the years I have been making a bunch of Top 10 lists for games on most of the consoles I own, as well as my out of the norm subjects, such as developers, and ESRB ratings.
Now I will be taking a look at all the games that have made my top 10 lists and finding out what genres occur the most often, for I am curious which genre’s I seem to favor, and this seems like a pretty good way to find out.
I’m gonna go nuts, and even break them all up into sub-genres.
So of all the many, many genres that have appeared on my top 10 lists, here are the most common ones!
The first-person genre is the first on this list. 8 games played through the eyes of the character you’re playing as made my top 10 lists.
#9- Action RPG
Action games with RPG elements made my lists 11 times.
#8- Japanese-Style, 3D, and Shooter
There’s a three-way tie for the number eight spot! Japanese-style, like JRPG’s, 3D games, usually associated with platforming, and types of shooters made my lists 12 times!
Anyone over-the-top, crazy fun time games made my lists 14 times.
20 games that allow you to wander over a vast world made the lists.
26 RPG’s made the lists.
#4- Action Adventure
Going on an adventure while killing a bunch of stuff? 33 games did this very well.
Games played in the realm of two dimensions made my lists a whopping 56 times!
Good ol’ jumping around on stuff, making your way from left to right (usually). This classic genre made my lists 58 times.
Simple, yet effective. If there’s any type of excitement in the game you’re playing, chances are it’s considered an action game, which is why it popped up a massive 83 times among my lists.
And there you have it! Looking at these 10, I am not surprised by the results, and I am certainly pleased with them!
I will update this lists as needed in the future.
