Sub-genres[edit]

While this template is a useful idea, I have my doubts about the sub-genre section, including as it does "action-adventures" which is really a hybrid and not a sub-genre, "interactive movie" which is debatable as an adventure category, and "amateur" which may be a category but is not really a genre.

As it stands I think the section title is misleading.. thoughts? Playclever (talk) 01:02, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

As a hybrid I still think it should be listed in the template. The others can be removed however. SharkD (talk) 01:32, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for making the changes! I wonder if a "related genres" or "hybrid genres" tab might be more apt for action-adventure, we do have frequent confusion on the adventure game page regarding action-adventures like Tomb Raider being adventure games rather than a distinct hybrid, and my concern is that including action-adventures would encourage this :) The distinction might also be a useful on other templates? Definitely good to keep the hybrids listed though. Good work. Playclever (talk) 01:51, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Looks good. Good job! SharkD (talk) 00:00, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

We have Eroge, Bishōjo game and Otome game under dating sim, which they are not. All three are determined by the game's content, and have no connection to specific gameplay or presentation. They are still typicaly either dating sims Visual novels or hybrids of these though Ayrix (talk) 00:01, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
