Personally Nothing is more thrilling then facing off with countless enemies, trying to fire at the enemies, it reminds me of arcade games honestly.

27 Roguelike

Unlimited replayability.

These games should be at least 15.
These games just have such a unique feel to it, there's no way to describe this genre.
The defining feature about this genre is that in most rogue-likes you will never play two playthroughs the same.

28 Multiplayer Online Battle Arena

Lol, Dota, Heroes, it's whatever you choose

Amazing and fun to play

Smite is just the best

DOTA 2 for the win!

29 Bullet Hell

Example: Realm of the Mad God
Bullets flying everywhere, how can it get better than this..

RotMG is the best

Touhou is best


To be honest JRPG should be in the same spot as RPG since a JRPG is just a RPG from Japan. But oh well.

31 Tactical RPG

Lol fire emblem

32 Survival-Adventure
33 Open First-Person Shooter
34 Otome
35 Wave Survival
36 Life Simulation

Is not it what every video game is about? The more you play, the more you ruin your real life. Sounds fair. A pretty popular trend nowadays, by the way.

How could this not be higher?
