I presented two sides of the issue in order to more strongly enforce the latter one. I believe in the use of genres but some don’t see them as particularly important, which was shown in the first part of the piece.

It seems like you wrote the 1st half of the article, came back a month later and forgot what your initially wrote and then slammed your own initial argument. I’m confused, but games, like everything else in life needs words and a classification to help us lowly humans know WTF ppl are talking about without going into too much detail…Brain hurts.

In time, DotA-clone as a title will die out, and some form of abbreviation will come out of the primordial goop that is the growing industry.

This certainly hasn’t happened to Rogue and its namesakes, the Roguelikes.
