    Pinball/Fishing/Tetris arent really Genres but since you put them up there I may aswell say they are the worst.
    Also this just seems to be a thread where everyone going to get up into their panties about "I hate mainstream FPS games they are so gay they are ruining the game industry."
    FPSs are great, there's no real reason that they should be hated as much as they are.
    Hate the game not the genre.

    EDIT: For an actual Genre im gonna have to agree with Sports ^^^

    I'd go with simulation. Never been a fan of nintendogs and all that other blah.

    Sports, for sure.

    And apparently there are games now where you play as a team's MANAGER? How boring can you get?

    Simulation for me. I find them very boring. Tetris is part of the puzzle genre and fishing is part of the sports genre or in some cases simulation genre.

    I would have to say simulation. Sports comes pretty close, but not enough.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    For me Pinball, Simulation, and Sports are definitely the worst genres. Simulation probably being the most boring.

    This list is not a very accurate genre list...and why not make some sort of poll out of this?

    I am surprised to see so many people saying FPS is bad. I personally think there are some good ones out their besides GoldenEye. I think Halo CE, TF2, and CS are all great FPS games. Also why isn't TPS on here?
