Best Game Genre to Buy to get Maximum Benefit For Your Money

Every player has a genre of preference. Some players only play first-person shooters while others only play RPG’s. There are also gamers out there that will play any game in any genre and those who will only play sports games. Although each gamer has a specific that they usually prefer there is still the question of which genre gives the player the most for their money? Putting personal inclination aside and assuming the player is buying a new game on the day of release, which genre will end up giving players the most for what they pay?

I am going to have to say any open-world game is going to have a hell of a lot more game than a shooter.

PixL1434d ago

800+ hours in Battlefield disagree with that. It all depends what you expect from a game. I would be bored to death playing Skyrim.

MP, quite frankly, doesn't *really* count for anything.

Wow I would be bored to death playing any game that long, especially a shooter. Most time i put in any shooters mp is 80 hours in bc2.

Well truthfully it depends on the player.

I prefer RPGs and MMOs. RPG can last a long time and has a high replay-ability rate. MMO never ends.

My cousin on the other hand prefers sport games and fps. He plays online a lot

I got him to TES4 once. Let just say he didn't get pass the beginning before get bored and frustrated with the game.

He tried to get me to play Madden with him. I played and hated it.

To each his/her own.

That depends entirely on how you define open-world. And genre. By the traditional gaming genres, open-world, well, doesn't exist. But the traditional rules for genres in gaming are moronic, so maybe that's a good thing.

Typically, games that fall under the nebuluous "roleplaying" moniker offer, by far, vastly more content than any other type of game. Whether a game like Skyrim where you can spend hundreds of hours walking around, Dialbo where you can spend hundreds of hours killing monsters, grabbing loot and grinding XP, or Baldur's Gate where there are hundreds and hundreds of hours of well-written narrative content to explore. Or something like Disgaea, where there's a virtually infinite number of tactical battles to be fought in an incredibly in-depth game system.

There's a reason, a very good reason, gamers once rated the quality of an RPG with the word "hours." These games can take hundreds of hours simply for a cursory playthrough; thousands of hours for thorough completion. No other 'genre' comes even remotely close.

Quote marks because "roleplaying" is not a real genre, but I'm not going to try and point out why again because I've noticed some gamers get really pissed off when someone tells them they're being illogical and irrational.

Never played an RPG as much as I have a shooter before. But everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

You get the most content with open world but I still need quality over quantity which is why I love Darksiders 2 so much since it has both in spades.
