As gaming has become one of the most profitable entertainment industries in the world, it has evolved along with modern popular culture. For better or for worse, technology is advancing. And as a result of that, a few genres quickly morphed into new genres or almost entirely disappeared. Even though tastes change over time, there are few exciting game genres that millennials want to give another go. And that’s why today we’ve rounded up the game genres that are now dead but millennials would like to return. Let’s take a look.

Rhythm games should be given another chance to shine.

The fifth generation era or 32-bit era introduced new genres like 3D fighters, survival horror, and many more iconic rhyming games. Sony succeeded in introducing Parappa the rapper for the PlayStation which is hugely remembered as one such power-up. Ultimately, these creations helped develop the fantasy of being a Rockstar.
