With the evolution of consoles and PCs, the genre has become increasingly popular and encompassing several subcategories. Among them, we have the famous Battle Royales, which are games that put players together in a large arena, where they need to survive eliminating all other enemies until only one remains.
Another subcategory that has also become quite popular over the years is stealth games. They require the player to be very careful to carry out tasks, without being discovered to be enemies, or failing with some other objective. Among the main titles we have the Assassin’s Creed and Hitman franchises.
