A Play-By-Email (-game).

The genre includes games like Galaxy, GalaxyNG, the ever-popular chess variants, RPGs, etc.

Play-by-Email games seem to be the oldest games on the internet, and a lot of them evolved from the snailmail PBM games.

A lot of current PBE-games are still text-based, and are still being actively developed, improved and played.
