    Is the sport genre even applicable to this game since the definition states it has to be an existing sport?

    Action?

    I put Automobile/Sports because I didn't see it had to be an existing sport. Although soccer is a sport... laugh

    Since it doesn't post the content of my disagreement:
    The genre definition for Sports explicitly states it models an existing sport. As awesome as it would be for this to be an existing sport, having cars hitting balls into goals is not something that actually exists in our world smile

    The same logic should be used concerning the removal of "Football", which I assume was tagged by people since you have two goals and an object you want to get into the opposing team's goal. That itself is far too broad to use as a definition of "Football" (which is not defined on the genre page like most of the individual sports, but I assume would be defined in detailed to the actual sport itself as it exists in the real world). Using an overly broad definition for the sake of including this game in Football would basically qualify every ice hockey, field hockey, or handball game at the least as "football".

    You couldn't tag football, just sports. The TA team would fill in the specific sport if it enough sports votes were cast.
    I agree they could get rid of football, but they can just keep sports imo.

    Sports as a tag is automatically generated because Football was applied; it happens with any Sports category. So, assuming Football is removed, Sports will go away as well.

    Note, however, that our Sports definition does not require it to be a wholly real sport. "They do not necessarily have to be simulations and may feature actions which are over-the-top, physically impossible, or not allowed within the real life activity."

    As such, I'm currently leaning on keeping this as-is. Thoughts on where it should be? Current requests would mean it just says Automobile, which isn't particularly descriptive of the gameplay.

    Having now dealt with a few more games that are "made up" sports, I'm actually not inclined to keep as-is now. Recommending Action in place of Football/Sports (Auto would stay). Fantastical abilities in games of existing sports do get to keep the sports assignment, but this is just too different to really conform to that from what I've seen. Recommendation:
    Add: Action
    Remove: Sports; Football

    I can agree with that toast

    I think drop football, but it's definitely a form of organized sport.

    We cannot simply tag Sport. As in, the system doesn't allow it. Sport functions as a parent genre, it is auto-generated when we apply a specific sport. It exists for leaderboard purposes but is not to be used alone, only in the auto-generated sense.

    Agree with the proposed change of Action and removing sports/football.

    I thought the whole purpose of this multi genre system is for games like this. It is clearly soccer with cars instead of humans. Yeah it has some over the top action to it as well, so action is clearly an applicable genre. It has automobiles, so clearly a automobile genre too. But you are gonna tell me it doesn't clearly portray a soccer game?? It has a ball, it has goals, they are on a field, you score a point when the ball goes in the goal.........hummmmm

    So the "best sports" TA game of the year for 2016 is now NOT a sport ?? What game now takes that title?

    We could probably do this now as the rules have been changed to allow Sports to be added as a genre without additional ones. I would recommend having it set as Sports and Automobile though as the game has both football and basketball-styled games they still dont play like an actual football or basketball game.

    thanks clown, if just sports can be added, i agree. I forgot about the basketball part. But i think the only way it doesn't play as football is the ball isn't kicked by feet, but by a car & humans cant run up a wall & ceiling.
