- balls (pinball, marble madness, sport games, ... hey even some interactive erotic fiction would fit into it - just to take away your chances to have some pun with my post)
- reaction

input limitations:
- one key (or button)
- no mouse / only mouse (mouse driven jump n run :-))


Next to genre it could be interesting to have an additional noun which has to be part of the game:
- carrot
- garden
- ocean
- rabbit
- ...
but as there are hundred of thousands of words... this wouldn't always result in some good random choice. Maybe it's better to choose 10-15 words out of community suggestions and then randomly choose one of this limited selection.
Carrot one-button strategy ;-)

Sound-alike competitions to choose from either the words:

Reign or Rain

Desert or Dessert

Break or Brake

Lose or Loose

Plain or Plane

Dual or Duel

Bite or Byte

Die or Dye

Gorilla or Guerilla

Knight or Night

(not serious) Pea or Pee

Sale or Sail

Steel or Steal

...

Most of them at least allow for a multitude of game genres.



Edit: another option would be to choose words where the removal or appending/prepending of a letter makes a big difference:
(R)Evolution
(S)Port
Kin(g)
Fun(d)
T(rim)
Sea(l)
...

..... Crepe or Crap (stale crepes)

Bait or Bat (fishing with a batty slant)

And finally, 6 options decided by the roll of a dice.......

Threw and Thru  8).    (Coconut Shy game)

Blew and Blue (a windy game)

Wait and Weight (A physics game......)

What about a one liner as a theme like "Holy Shit!"...and a game has to reflect that feeling. Like a 2nd level of a shooter game that turns the casual fun into a bullet storm hell and we're not sure if it was wise to break through the first defence line. And all kinds of unexpected surprises.

Similarly the theme could be "In Medias Res" where the gamer find itself in the middle of the action, the hardest part of the game, and has to fight through it to get to the more relaxed places etc. So the game starts as a total chaos...middle of a battle kind of thing...but there is a way out, there is a chance to survive, and more we progress the easier it gets. What do you say people of syntax bomb? Should we explode...I mean explore this one???
