Games/ encompasses all English language web sites about games. The Open Directory Project defines a game as any activity that is meant to entertain the participants and that is governed by a specific set of rules. Games are also usually competitive, typically involving players competing either against each other, against one or more simulated players, or against tasks set by the rules of the game. There are usually ways to win and lose a game spelled out in the rules.
Games/ covers sites about nearly any sort of game, including Computer and Video Games, Board Games, Roleplaying Games, and Gambling Games, and most other activities that are commonly referred to as games. Sites about sports, recreational activities, or sites whose primary purpose is to sell items have categories specifically for sites with their type of content.
Sports/ are usually more physical activities, and generally involve some form of physical exertion. Included there are sports that may be recreational rather than competitive activities for most people, such as bicycling.
Recreation/ is for hobbies, activities, and pastimes that are meant to give enjoyment during a participant's leisure time. These activities are generally not competitive and usually don't have a way to absolutely win or lose. They are not typically governed by a specific set of rules.
