26 Scrolling Shooters

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

Mechwarrior 4 was my favorite in this genre, especially Mechwarrior 4 vengeance (good luck pirating THIS one, asses, you're stuck with Mechwarrior 4: mercenaries, which didn't have as great a storyline) - 8chAnonymous

29 Bullet Hell

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

RotMG is the best

31 Survival-Adventure
32 Open First-Person Shooter
33 Otome
34 Wave Survival
35 Life Simulation V 1 Comment
36 Indie
37 Builder

Very Underrated Genre

38 Space Combat V 1 Comment
39 Graphic Adventure
40 Horror

Always exiting and keeps you on your toes, with horror games your bound to get scared but it thrills you to keep on going

I find that Horror games can go in depth with the story & really make you feel as if it was you in the game.
