Why Do We Need Genre Labels?

DualShockers writes: "However, is that all that sets those titles apart from, let's say, Metal Gear Solid, God of War or Modern Warfare? Those games have a mix of RPG-like elements, as well, while not necessarily concentrating completely on the depth of individual character stats that straight RPGs may."

I'm waiting for the first sports/shooter/platformer title to come around. It'll be epic.

Capture the flag in FPS games is sort of like a sport. You have to take a target to the goal and there is defensive and offensive mechanics. So right there you have sport/FPS. Some levels could have platform jumping segments, so there ya go.

Mirrors edge. Free running is a sport (parkour they call it) plus it has shooting and its a platformer.

are getting mixed up so much that I think it's hard to find a title that is comprised of only one. However I don't necessarily think that it's a bad thing either.

You have sum very good points here!

For being an intern at a gaming website, you better improve your grammar. "Sum" isn't proper.

Everything has some sort of Leveling system anymore. I think genre's are starting to blend very well with MAG's MMOFPS, Borderland's FPSRPG, and Heavy Rain's "I don't know what to fcking call it". I am ready for an Open-World Action Adventure Driving Platform QTE Real Time Strategy mix....oh wait Brutal bad!

the real and most immersive RPG ever? so how about RLG (Real Life Game) hahaha

i love GOW because its hack n slash/platformers/mini and puzzle games (same type of reasons i love U2 also) games are best when they can blend the different medium genres, its rare to see a game stick to exclusively one genre and still be good/successful.
