    I've never said everyone is wrong and i'm right. It's not even that kind of discussion. If you have to make up arguments to make you "win the argument", maybe it's just not very good? Maybe use the quote function to prove i said something like this?

    A genre should be easy to identify and describe, it's why it works for most of them, it's why we have genres, so we quickly can say what something is or isn't.

    Yes I do agree you can still talk about it and that these kind of rather personal, or vague / broad descriptions, will get a lot of discussion because its just so hard to pin down, it will generate the discussion naturally. It's why that subreddit is full of it too. It's not like i've not seen this exact thing 100's of times before when it comes to for example electronic music and it's many genres and sub genres, and people get upset there too, and for really no reason (imo), there are better names to use. If it's too broad/vague or with a lot of "personal preference" and with a "preferably" and "generally" tacked on too it will just naturally do that.

    But again, i personally understand what you mean with it because i've played most of what you call immersive sims, this has been the nr 1 forum to go to for that and one of the first maybe, yet people HERE still don't really know, still argue or ask if it can be called that, it's still this "it both is and it isn't" discussion and filled with personal preference too.

    You do you. Have fun with it guess. i have nothing more to add + i'll take a break from this thread i think to not get tempted to reply endlessly and repeat myself over and over.

    Sure, I've even highlighted it for you with bold...

"you said simulator, it's actually sim!" etc. give me a break, you people lost the discussion and what was maybe worth discussing when you stopped quoting, you had nothing more to add to the discussion and that's fine.

    Nothing more to add? Implying that you have contributed something in the first place by arguing that our use of immersive sim as a genre label is wrong and that we consider the wrong games to be immersive sims, because Mario 64 has more simulation or something.
