Video Game Genres: Everything You Need to Know



Words like FPS, RPG, MMO and MOBA get thrown around all the time, but not everyone knows what they actually mean. In this video, we explain some of the major gaming genres and how they differ from those similar to them, e.g. MMO vs MMORPG etc.

If you’ve ever wanted to know what all those big letters mean but never bothered to ask (or perhaps you were just too shy because some gamers tend to be a bit mean nowadays!) – then make sure to check this video out as we guide you through everything that makes gaming a great industry that it is!

Did we miss any other big genre? What other genre would you like us to explain? Let us know in the comment section below – we’d be honoured to help!

  • Great video! I have to disagree with you about Witcher 3 though, as that is similar to BOTW in that it is an action/adventure game with RPG elements rather than an actual RPG.

  • People should make videos like this
    When a person say he/she is a gamer, they don't say what kinds of game do they play and I'm interested in some games but I don't know what they are called or what genre do they belong to. I was confused. This is the first thing a gamer should have explained to someone who is new to gaming if they want a new subscriber and they should teach how to play first but they are just showing off their skill. Like where is the tutorials? I don't think someone can learn anything from watching a screen controlled by someone, unless he or she knows how to play.

  • So are these more or less "Interactive Genres"? So is God of War an RPG? So correct me if I'm wrong… (God of War) Interactive Genre is RPG and Story Genres are Action/Adventure, Mythology….? Am I wrong or am I missing the point?!

  • I feel like RPGs need to redefined but that's obviously super debatable. For me, Witcher 3 is an Action Adventure game (like you said), and I think the fact that it has quests and leveling is not enough to make it an RPG. An RPG is strictly a game where I create my own character, with user-defined stats and personality. But clearly that's not the modern standard for RPGs,

    Thanks for the great video 🙂

  • The setting of the world has nothing to do with RPG or MMORPG. Why bring up is it fiction or not? MMO is Massively Multiplayer Online and it's just lots of players connected on a same server that can interac with each other. There is no MMO game, its not a game type. The question is : Is it MMORPG or RPG.

  • Next the differences between franchises. For example farcry vs call of duty. I wanted to shop fps but they all looked the same to me. Knowing what makes one game different than the other would be useful.
