Makes sense, I would have figured shooters to be #1 but "action" has a pretty broad stroke

Yeah this looks pretty correct to me. Wonder if something like Uncharted and Tomb Raider fall in to the shoot category or the action category.

This doesn't work. He made a thread about a forbes article discussing what game genres are played/preferred in the US.

If it weren't for things like Fallout, Elder Scrolls and Dragon Age, RPG's would probably be even further down the ladder still.

Shouldn't be any surprises here, though I would be interested in what they are calling "Adventure". I wonder if they are adding stuff like the Lego games into that genre, rather than Action or Family Entertainment?

I'm also wondering where they're putting the MOBA's like League of Legends. Those are the most popular games in the world right now.

What article? It's probably about what games Xbox players play in the US and since Xbox ain't got no RPG game...
