Game Genre - Action Games

Action games emphasize physical challenges that require hand-eye coordination and motor skill to overcome.

They center around the player, who is in control of most of the action.

Most of the earliest video games were considered action games; today, it is still a vast genre covering all games that involve physical challenges.

Action games are classified by many subgenres.

Platform games and fighting games are among the best-known subgenres, while shooter games became and continue to be one of the dominant genres in video gaming since the 1990s.

Action games usually involve elements of twitch gameplay.
