    What genres are under-represented on the PC? What PC games are in those genres?

What genres are we missing, are there any console games you would like to see replicated on PC? I'd like to get a list up and running. Emulation exists, but arguing whether it's legal or moral is probably something for another day. I also won't list the huge amount of legal genesis games that sega plopped on steam.
