Explore Fun Video Game Genres!

Action, RPG and sports games are globally the most popular pastimes and other video game genres may be somewhat neglected. The gaming world has far more to offer than these three most played video game genres. From fast-paced racing titles to intricate strategy games to naughty erotic games - explore some classic genres with us.

  • Action games or even FPS (first-person shooter) are most often shooter, fighting and jumping games in which you and your character try to fight your way immersed in a thrilling and action-packed story to its victorious end.
  • Adventure games are full of intricate storylines and twists, accompanied by insidious puzzles.
  • RPG (Role-playing games) is a video game genre that includes titles that involve elaborate game worlds that you get to know through the eyes of the hero you play.
  • Sports and racing games let you put yourself in the shoes of a top footballer, hockey player or race car driver.
  • Strategy, Card and logic games are great if you want to beat your opponent tactically and give your brain cells a workout.
  • A Simulation game is a video game genre for people who are truck, rail or aircraft enthusiasts. You can become a truck driver, a racing driver or a pilot in the virtual world where you can crash without any consequences.
  • Arcade games were played as early as the beginning of the 20th century on slot machines. But today this nostalgic video game genre will still challenge your observational skills and your endurance.
  • Music and movement games (also known as rhythm games) allow you to be able to control the game with your own body thanks to the console's sensors.
  • Children's video games are not full of violence or vulgarity, so even the youngest children can enjoy them safely.

Try Out Some Non-traditional Video Game Genres

In addition to the classic established genres, there are also lesser-known or special types of video game genres that are also worth mentioning. Have you ever heard of the hit of recent years, the so-called "Battle Royale" game? Have you ever searched for stimulating entertainment on the internet and thought of erotic games? You are not alone.

Video Game Genres: Show You are the Best in Battle Royale Online

When playing the video game genre known as Battle Royale, you have a very simple task- just to stay alive as the last man (or woman!) standing. Battle Royale games challenge many players, starting with minimal equipment, to search for weapons and armour to eliminate other opponents while trying to stay in safe playable areas which shrink as the time passes. The winner is the last competitor in the game. The most famous Battle Royale online games include Apex Legends, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) and the legendary Fortnite.

The First Battle Royale will Surprise You!

It may surprise you that the Battle Royale video game genre is not completely new. The first battle royal game ever was Minecraft. In multiplayer mode, it was possible to connect to servers that hosted so-called. "survival games". These were essentially the same as today's battle royal games.
