Top Ten Worst Video Game Genres


The Top Ten

1 Point-and-Click Adventure

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

2 Simulation
3 Stealth

WHAT! These are awesome!

4 Music

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

5 2-D Sidescroller

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

6 Wave Survival

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

7 First Person Shooter

Overrated, Overhyped, full of the most annoying players to encounter. - UserWhom

Move this to #1

8 Sandbox
9 Party

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

10 Clicker

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.

The Newcomers

? Walking Simulator

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


The Contenders

11 Adventure
12 Space Combat
13 Horror
14 Text-Adventure
15 Role-Playing Games
16 Action-Adventure
17 Sports
18 Porn

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.

20 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

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