Shooters seem the most toxic and immature based on my experiences.

My guess is either Shooters or MOBAs. MMOs, they can usually get policed out pretty quick between various tools added to limit "trollish" behavior like AFKing, causing issues with the other party members, etc. I don't see how much trolling could be done in racing, sports, and fighting games - they're fairly individualized where a single "troll player" won't ruin everyone's day. Shooters and MOBAs, though, those have team modes - and one person acting out in a team setting can ruin the fun for everyone else on that team.

That's the thing about "trolling" behaviors that make them so appealing to some people, and troublesome to others - the ability to "mess with" other players while also experiencing complete or nigh-complete immunity from other players, at least for the duration of the match. Team-killing is a popular activity, as is the "I'm helping by hindering!" actions of leaving areas open for the enemy team to exploit, or by simply running around not actively trying to kill or be killed by the other team - instead, actively trying to be killed by them, while not trying to kill them in turn.

In those other genres? You don't have much of that because of how they're designed. Shooters and MOBAs, though, they're slightly different. Sometimes they have good tools, sometimes they don't. A large population and the "thrown together with random players" aspects of them, though, make it more appealing to mess with new people every time.

I don't know. A buddy of mine has been addicted to World of Warcraft for about a decade, at least, and the stories I hear from him about the community are not good at all.

Whichever is the most popular. First it’s CoD, then LoL, then Overwatch, then PUBG, then Fortnite, etc.
I swear I'm not insane. Yes, most likely not insane.

Every genre has their fair share of ass hats.
