I built leaderboards for Bull Sports and Motocross. Pretty much every "Sports" genre (Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, etc) is hidden on the genre list because they are usually self-explanatory and take up too much space due to how plentiful they are. We still build leaderboards if there are enough games for them so people can track what they want, but we keep them hidden from the main definitions page to avoid unnecessary clutter.
Did you just add Motocross to the Genre Filter like yesterday after my comment? Because I swear it has not been there ever before.
I did, I never realized before that these genres didn't have boards or filters.

It was mentioned before - just not addressed at the time. Stuff happens.

Perhaps the voting will suss this out, and I'm sure it was put there just because of the developer's past, but Sekiro is not an RPG like the other Souls games.

You’re right but it’s not so crystal clear. I expect voting will call it an RPG and the genre team will leave it though. You might as well start working on it now.

Haha, I like that. "You're right... but the system will fail us anyway."

Anyway, it's basically a Darksiders situation where it's more akin to a Zelda/Metroidvania where the progression is locked behind gaining specific equipment as opposed to leveling and stat-based gear (of which there is none - as well as no classes). The developers themselves have said it is an action-adventure game and not an RPG, though I know the team doesn't listen to that either.

It’s got experience, crafting and skill trees. It’s gonna be enough. Like I said, get started now haha.
