Recommendations for these listed genres?

Yeah it’s another blog about me asking the Giantbomb community about some games that are worth playing or not. I write these blogs because quite frankly, what I know about the gaming industry is outdated. I haven’t being track of the latest gaming industry since the beginning of 2011. There is a reason why that happened. I got distracted by the comics, school, life, but mostly dealing with some betrayal with some friends. The ladder kept me distracted for a while and some things that I liked to do on my free time started to lose my interest. Unfortunately, the part of me that played video games for fun started to lose my interest. That part of me eventually returned when I played Mortal Kombat (2011) and since then I’ve been trying to keep up on the latest on gaming. Sadly, school had taken up a lot more of my time then I wanted to so I had to focus on that. Now that I’m done with school for the time being, I want to do some catching up.

I know a ton of good games have been released within recent years and I want to know which games are worth playing in certain genres. Here’s what I mean. I like fighting games and I know there have been a number of good fighting games like Mortal Kombat (2011), Street Fighter 4, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl that are worth playing. So I’m hoping that the Giantbomb community can give me some kind of idea on what’s good and bad in the following genres.

  1. Action
  2. Action-Adventure
  3. Role Playing Games
  4. Stealth
  5. Shooters
  6. Platformers
  7. Hack and Slash
  8. Beat’em Up
  9. Fighting Games
  10. Racing
  11. Sand-box or Open World Games, whatever you prefer to call it.

I know that I’m asking a lot with this and my previous Final Fantasy Blog but any input would be greatly appreciated.
