Madden, NHL, PGA, tennis, Forza Motorsport, UFC or Olympics. I can't think of a single thing they have in common.

Meanwhile, fighters, FPS, most RPGs, etc roughly play the same way as every other game in those genres?

Discuss.

Is “football” not a subgenre?

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ps4/289723-madden-nfl-21/data

Genre:

Sports > Team > Football > Sim

Sports gamers affect like 1% of gaming discourse. You’d sooner see Metroid Prime with its own genre proper than “basketball.”

Football is “sports”

Just like UFC and track and field and tennis games

Gamefaqs lists it as a subgenre

They all fall under “sports” because they are sports. The sports umbrella also helps Losers avoid them.

Forza Motorsport and UFC already belong to their own separate genres (racing and fighting), but most of those other ones involve having players score points by moving around a ball or a puck or whatever. It's not like all RPGs have the same gameplay to any more of an extent than that.
