You might also eventually add Horror to that list (like for example in Resident Evil series, or Silent Hill), doesn't fit into any of the four categories I think.

Why? Horror is a story trait, not a setting.

Sci-fi + horror? Alien
History + horror? Bram Stoker's Dracula
...and so on.

For the next poll I would like to do Lulu's idea of buggy as hell games but we need a few more games to add to the list. So far we have;

Darksun Shattered Lands 2, QFG 4, Daggerfall, Elite 2 and Ultima 9.

Two or three more games would be perfect guys so lets get thinking.

Add Ultima 8 and Master of Magic to it.
Ultima 8 only received just one patch ever, and remained quite buggy at times as it is. So is Master of Magic, more than enough bugs even with the newest Insecticide patch.

What about Spider Robinson from Callahan's Crosstime Saloon? In the game he's called Jake Stonebender, but he's actually the writer of the story, plus, he performs the songs in the game.

I totally hope one of the games I don't know is not really an RTS so people can go nuts about it. More posts means more love for the site...actually maybe I should do this on purpose.

Since I've been asked to provide some help so the polls are not one sided...

M.A.X, Netstorm, Fragile Allegiance, Settlers and X-Com are not RTS.

I'd be tempted to say that Populous is not RTS either but that game is so old it was published way, way before the term RTS was effectively coined. Since there is no way to do orders while paused it might apply for RTS genre.
