Category Definition Notes Examples
Automobile These games allow the player to take control of an automobile (both driving and racing it) or otherwise focus on automobiles even if they are not driven. MobyGames
Bicycle These games allow the player to take control of a non-motorized bike to explore or race, or allow the player to manage a bike racing team. Overlap with cycling category?
MobyGames
Bus These games allow the player to take control of or otherwise focus on buses. This includes both racing, simulation driving or any managerial game focusing on buses. MobyGames
Flight These games allow the player to take control of an aircraft (both flight and combat) or otherwise focus on aircrafts or aviation. Helicopters have their own genre where Flight/Aviation is implied. This genre also covers hot air balloons, blimps, zeppelins, gliders, hang-gliders and similar ones. MobyGames
Helicopter These games allow the player to take control of a helicopter (both flight and battle) or otherwise focus on helicopters. MobyGames
Hovercraft These games allow the player to take control of a hovercraft, a hybrid craft capable of travelling over land, water, mud or ice and other surfaces. This also includes futuristic crafts that hover above the ground (e.g. Wipeout or F-Zero). Hovercraft games do not have the genres Flight/Aviation or Naval/Watercraft. MobyGames
Industrial Games that prominently feature agricultural / industrial vehicles controlled directly in a simulation. MobyGames
Motorcycle These games allow the player to take control of a motorcycle, dirtbike or similar vehicle or otherwise focus on motorcycles. MobyGames
Naval/watercraft These games allow the player to take control of a boat, ship or other type of watercraft, or otherwise focus on watercraft or naval combat or navigation. Hovercrafts are considered a separate genre. MobyGames
Off-roading These games allow the player to participate in or otherwise focus on off-road racing/driving. MobyGames
Robot These games allow the player to take control of or otherwise focus on robots or machines controlled by people. These machines vary great in size and shape, but are distinguished from other vehicles by their humanoid or biomorphic appearance. MobyGames
Self-propelled artillery These games allow the player to take control of a self-propelled artillery or otherwise focus on self-propelled or mobile artillery. MobyGames
Space flight These games allow the player to take control of spacecraft or otherwise focus on spacecrafts. MobyGames
Street racing Games which revolve around the practice of street racing, i.e. racing of motor vehicles on a public road. This practice is mostly illegal in real life, and many games depict it as an underground, illicit affair (and may feature themes such as dodging regular traffic or avoiding police), but this is not necessary for inclusion in the group. MobyGames
Tank Gameplay featuring tanks whether they are fictional or based on reality. MobyGames
Track racing These games allow the player to participate in or otherwise focus on racing/driving on racing tracks. This does not need to be a real race track, but it needs to be clear the environment has been fenced off or designed in such a way that a track is created, regardless of the surface or the setting. Racing games that take place in open environments where all obstacles or routes are natural, without human intervention to create a track (e.g. Outrun), do not receive this genre. Invisible barriers also do not count as a way to create a track. In order to receive this genre, the majority of the racing needs to take place on a track. MobyGames
Train These games allow the player to take control of a train or otherwise focus on trains. MobyGames
Transport These games allow the player to take control of or otherwise focus transporting people or cargo using vehicles. MobyGames
Truck These games allow the player to take control of or otherwise focus on trucks. This includes racing, but also transport. MobyGames
