Hi folks would you all mind suggesting the big themes in gaming?

(Project on tomorrow but it's too late here now - would be great to wake up to some suggestions.):

Examples:
Pirates
Zombies
Cthulhu (Cthulhu Mythos)

Ta!

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

I don't think Piracy is really all that huge a theme.
Nor is sports.

As far as locales go, Japan is vastly popular, as is Europe as a whole, with a few hot spots (Italy, England, Germany, Scandinavia). Egypt is pretty popular, as well.

Actually... Piracy is huge but just seems to fly under the radar with lower ranked games.

Since the start of 2015, according to the database, when it comes to ranked games, there have been more Pirate themed games (28) than zombie (17) and Cthulhu Mythos (15) themed games.

Piracy themed games are dominant against the other two mentioned theme types right up until 2010-2015 where Zombies pulls ahead (+20).
