Now I'd like to pose the question: Rail Shooters, Classic or Regular?

I'm afraid I don't understand the question.
I have Rail Shooters currently listed as Classic Shooters. Should they be left under the regular Shooter genre? I can honestly see them as either.

I wouldn’t say that Rail Shooters constituted a genre on its own.

That's not really what I'm implying. I'm asking if it should be Classic Shooter or Shooter.

Now I get it... you have to speak slowly to your elders sometimes. Wink

I'd put it under Shooter, as I don't think it fits with the idea of classic scrolling shooters.

Question:

Do the Blood Bowl games count as "Sport", "Strategy" or "Game Simulator"?

People tend top categorise it as Sport, but it's based on the miniature board game by Games Workshop.

That's a good question. The "Game Sim" genre is specific to our site, as far as I know. It basically exists to easily categorize a number of games that have analog equivalents. (which I find useful and am definitely for keeping around) There are however many instances of these games fitting into better defined genres. e.g.: D&D to RPG, Risk to Strategy. Keeping that in mind, I'd put Blood Bowl down as a Strategy game; especially since typical sports games are generally more geared towards action/simulation of a real-world sport.
