It does feel like Sony, Specifically newly appointed Worldwide Studios President, Herman Hulst, does want to try and shed that image it built up in the PS4, and show that PlayStation is more than capable of offering a large and varied lineup of games.

Sony is 2nd to none, when it comes to offering large and varied lineups of games.
Thats like one of the main selling points of the playstation, it caters to everyone.

That was true for the PS4, and will be true for the PS5 as well.

I cheated a little for Sony because a lot of there games are just labelled action adventure. So I tried to split them up a little. Also I added some games released just before the switch released

Overall we have Nintendo representing 26 genres and Sony with 19. Honestly both are very impressive numbers.

These lists are only representative of the last 3 years on the ps4 and switch. Overall they seem to cover a lot of genres that the other doesn't.
