I have heard it said that certain platforms are better for certain genres and it got me wondering which platform people think are best for which genre...

First Person Shooter

Roleplaying Games

Action Adventure

Real Time Strategy

Turn Based Strategy

Third Person Shooter

3D Platformer

Arcade

Which platfom would you consider best for each genre and why?

Anything japanese is more likely to end up on PS4 or Wii U. Platformers and local multiplayer games are dominant on the Wii U, strategy games are dominant on PC, and sports games go to both PS and Xbox this gen.

That's about it that I can think of. There really hasn't been a big difference between the libraries of Playstation and Xbox for the past generation. Third party multiplats dominate both of those consoles. You're gonna get the occasional first party game, but those can come from any genre. I mean, that is if you're talking purely about the selection of games. That's just my two cents.

Racing: Wii U

Sports: Xbox One / PS4

First Person Shooter: Xbox One

Roleplaying Games: Wii U

Action Adventure: PS4

Real Time Strategy: None yet (Wii U would be superior as the controller would be awesome for this)

Turn Based Strategy: TBD

Third Person Shooter PS4 or Xbox One

3D Platformer Wii U (Nintendo always wins platformers)

Arcade : All three

Which platfom would you consider best for each genre and why?

I'm sure this will change when more games come out in 2-3 years

PC for everything but sports.

And that's simply because nobody develops sports games worth a crap on it.

Just so you know PC is a valid choice in case you weren't counting it for whatever reason.

MMOs - PS4/Wii U due to the addition of the Touch Pad(PS4) and Second Screen(Wii U) on their controllers.

Shooters - Xbox One

RTS - Wii U and maybe PS4 to a degree due to mmo reason.

All other games would be fine on any console.
