'Serious games', aka edutainment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serious_games

It's not to mean that other genres are less valid... calm down people.

Quite, if any genre is less valid it's that edutainment crap. Wink

Yeah, what really makes me giggle is the fact that "Serious games" are usualy a lot less serious then their "Silly" counterparts Tongue.

I don't really associate serious games with edutainment, but I guess they are. I associate serious games with realistic simulations, usually for the purpose of learning... but I guess this is getting a bit off topic?

I'm more concerned that a game could potentially fit into all three categories, simultaneously. Hint: That isn't a very good system of categorization.

Indeed. Surely it should be things like "Best Audio Design", "Best Music", "Best Core GamePlay Design", "Best Political Commentary", "Best Art Direction", "Best Story", "Best Animation"... I mean, I could go on.
