In Game Dev Tycoon, you get an experience multiplier and bonus to your review scores by creating games utilising a 'Good' or 'Great' Combination of genre and game type, along with aiming the game at the correct target audience. For example, Military and Simulation is a 'Great' Combo.

What are other great combinations for creating games?
