Not really. None of them are bad for gaming. I personally prefer browns for gaming. They are easier to find than reds.
My personal preference, blues are best for typing, good for gaming; Browns are good for quiet typing, great for gaming; Blacks are terrible to type on, good for gaming. I personally use a filco brown and hh topre keyboard atm.
This all depends on if you intend to learn how to type without bottoming out. For example, my reaction time was much slower on G15 compared to my MXbrown keyboard as I'm able to actuate the key at halfway instead of full bottoming out on the dome G15.
If you don't intend to learn how to type without bottoming out, each keyboard (unless topre switch ie realforce and similar) will sound just as loud, and tactile feedback won't matter. The only thing that would matter is how light you want the keys to be when you press them, and the force is stated in the guide already. There's also another comprehensive guide in geekhack.org.
