It's not uncommon to see many ignorant people talking about how shooters are all "linear stale lowest common denominator pewpewpew" games that are only played by 'dudebros' who are morally and intellectually inferior to them. So I wondered, what would happen if I applied their special brand of ignorance and stupidity to other genres?

JRPGs: Games for people with no reflexes, intelligence, or skill, that cater towards immature pre teens who love anime. To ensure none of the universally skill-less players quit, all that you need to do to clear a boss with ease is kill 100 of the weakest monsters.

RTS, MMO: Games meant for people with no social life at all who just spend all day playing games because their lives suck so much.

Hack n Slash: Games with no depth or skill for children who think playing a game with gratuitous violence makes them cool.

Stealth: For cowards who are terrified of confrontation and lack the ability to actually fight, so they just hide in shadows until stupid enemies turn their backs to them and then stab them in the back.

Survival horror: Games for people with no control of their basic instincts who are afraid of pixels.

Fighting games: Designed for people with no actual skill, but the ability to memorize button press sequences to get super mega fifty hit juggle combos, and think they're good because they can do that.

Just to clarify, I don't actually think any of this nonsense and like every genre except sports games. This was all meant as a parody of the stupid people I mentioned in the first paragraph. If anyone feels like continuing it with other genres in the comments below, be my guest.

This is dumb.

The problem with some of your generalizations (and generalizations in general) is that you are focusing on a certain group of games in each category.

FPS generalizations are mostly focused on the MMS titles. The modern military shooters that are a dime a dozen and by the numbers.

Yeah, I mean a LOT of FPS have become casualized corridor shooters unfortunately. But I see people regarding great FPS as dudebro games and it does make me facepalm. Then people regarding JRPGs as loli games. Ugh. Too much bull**** in general, man. Just let them all have their opinions and laugh at them when they can't enjoy games cause a bunch of people raped them with the opinion that it's bad.
