Yeah thats pretty messy and it's missed out some genres, even the older ones. Some of the catagories dont need to be added in there. Genres always cross over though so some might be suited elsewhere.

Shooting games-
Scrolling Shooter games (vertical or horizontal)
Third person shooters
First Person Shooter's
Maybe another catagory for lightgun games even though they can be called FPS games

Fighting Games-
Scrolling Beat Em Ups
2D
3D

Platform Games-
Maybe just 2D and 3D catagories here too

RPG's-
Turn Based RPG's
Action RPG's
MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online RPG)
Tactical/Strategy RPGs

Puzzle Games-
Block games
Maze games
Point and click games

Driving Games-
Arcade racers
Driving simulation

Simulation Games-
God games
Real Time Strategy
Sports Manager games
Driving/Flying/Train etc. sims

Sports Games

NICE WORK RED !! Yeah I have a bigger list of game styles but I have to go find it and it's going to cover the old stuff ..So yeah Thanks esp. since I dont keep up with things like I used to so I was hopeing one of you would know some styles I might not have thought of like point and click ..thats better than or a good off shoot of elimination etc.

I also like Simulation Games ...good title and was just calling thoose SIMS and not likeing it would have never thought of Tactical/Strategy RPGs

So cool anyone ELSE ??
