Genres are groups that make it easier to find a specific game. For example, if a game was set in the wild west, it would go in the Western genre.
The Genres filtering was removed in October 26th 2017 for an apparently unknown reason. This caused a bit of outrage in the forums after it was removed. However the Genre filtering still exists in the Catalog, but it is currently unknown if it will be also removed in the future.
