Genres go in and out of fashion. When I was a kid, 2D platformers were everything. Then they were nothing. Then it was all about 3D fighters. Then it was first person shooters.
Now it feels like there's a niche for everything, but there are still genres that are underrepresented or, worse, aren't represented at all.
Like the 'Olympic' games -- Daley Thompson's Decathalon. The type that totally destroyed your joystick from real button bashing. Or text adventures. Or side-scrolling blast 'em ups. Man, whatever happened to those?
It got me wondering. What genres do you guys and girls miss? What would you like to see make a comeback?
