Top Ten Worst Video Game Genres

The Top Ten

Point-and-Click Adventure

It is the least fun out of all other genres out there whenever it's a best game, worst game, average game whatever they all share exact same problem: slow, clunky, repetitive and lame

Like most of the genres on this list, it really depends what game you are talking about. Some Point and Click adventures are great, but some are incredibly dull. - Yoshilord

Click somewhere, he goes there, he does something, click somewhere else, giant loophole - Justmakinganame


Boring genre-TheCoolGuy1

First Person Shooter

I will be honest here, FPS games are my least favorite video game genre.
Why? Because it gets boring REALLY fast. All you do is shoot people. That's it. - MasterHand

There's way too many of them, they dominate the market over much better games and they have awful communities. These embody everything wrong with the industry! - KalloFox34

They have diluted the modern video game market

The most overrated genre ever.

Wave Survival

It's the same thing: shoot a ton of zombies, wait for the next round, then shoot some more. - Dominicmgm

2-D Sidescroller

Who put this in the list? Some like Mario games are great.

Who would put this here? Mario games are great. This genre even saved gaming. - Justmakinganame


The most boring games ever. They are the exact same thing; pushing buttons with packs of music. If you aren't fast enough it gets boring really quick. - BlueTopazIceVanilla


It's like watching sport, but somehow even more boring and pointless.

What's the point in sports video games when you can just go to your local fields and play with your friends and get exercise?

The most boring.
- there's no plot
- always playing in the same field


The Newcomers

The Contenders


Don't know why this genre is on a higher position. Maybe because of the big quantity of littles that overhype this cancer. The community's toxic, and it requires no skill from the players. All you have to do to win is wait for the opposing team to commit the first little mistake and then snowball snowball snowball snowball snowball snowball snowball and snowball like a retard until the enemies can't do anything against you and you become invincible. It's impossible to turn the tides once you gain the first edge of advantage against them, no matter how small this advantage is.


I dislike this genre - B1ueNew

A bunch of random classic games on a disc. The controls could be infuriating. Games like these should be put in a pet care app on the Playstore. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Space Combat

You need internet connection and if you don't continue you will lose progress. Also you can never complete it.

Complete ass


I don't get it why this is so popular, I hate all Clicker games except Time Clickers. - malamJONES

Clicker games get staler when you play them longer, and they are mind-numbing.

Battle Royale

Drop out of sky only to be killed by players who somehow have weapons 1 millisecond after landing or spend 20 minutes hiding and then win. Your choice! - computerfan0

All battle royales have objectively clunky combat compared to fps games. Easiest way to win is to hide and most of the game is spent looting.

Battle royale sucks

Role-Playing Games

These are good - KalloFox34

Visual Novel

Is it just me or are those games actually that boring or plain awful? The only thing good about some visual novels I heard of is that their anime adaptations are good. - SelfDestruct

For those unaware, this is a term used to describe games that have no gameplay, just cutscenes over and over again. "Oh, so like Telltale? " No, Telltale actually knows how to animate cutscenes. The ones in these games are just characters making different poses, like a slideshow. It doesn't help that the characters are hideously drawn. While I really hate RPGs (for being boring) and battle royale games (I don't like this sudden trend towards multiplayer-only), at least they have gameplay. These games have absolutely nothing and the only reason they aren't dominating the "worst games" list is because they're too damn obscure for people to care about.

Definitely deserves a higher spot on the list. At least the genres above take actual skills to make. - Chatsa2

good god

Walking Simulator

These are dull. Gone Home is an amazing example, as not only is it boring, it has an SJW agenda. - Dominicmgm

Action Role-playing

Some are good, But some are mediocre
