Game Genres

Splitting into 'genres' is simply a way of classifying games - a game genre is a type, class or 'sort of' game. Genre comes from the Latin ablative form of the word 'genus' and means 'concerning type or class of'. It is a 'posh' way of saying game type - but it is what gamers say... and we need to speak in the vernacular to be accepted by the peasantry!
