What gaming genre will dominate the next generation?

#1HOTJaVaLaVaPosted 2/4/2013 11:28:56 AM
It seems that every generation of consoles brings along a genre that does exceedingly well. For instance, I view the PS2 to be a time that JRPGs and Action games were at the top of the list, and for the PS3, FPS were the more popular and prestigious of the genres (that is only my opinion though, I am sure everyone else may think differently).

Thus, my question is what genre do you guys think will stand out in the next generation of consoles?

My guess is everything will try and be more open-world.

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

Who really cares which genre dominates...
As long as every genre is supported, than what does it matter ?

Pop & Rap is the dominant genre of music, but it doesn't mean that you can't buy Rock, Country, Classical, Techno, New Age, and etc.

Just like Football is the dominant Sport in the US (Soccer is dominant everywhere else), but that doesn't prevent people from enjoying Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, etc.

It shouldn't matter which genre is dominant, because all genres are still going to be supported.
There are more genres being supported this gen than ever before...its a fact.
