Within the header of our reviews you may see a small icon identifying the primary category the game being reviewed belongs to. Those categories are identified below:
The one thing I really would love on this site is a "Random" game button. I don't mean games that are random; but since there are sooo many games on this website that I won't even see unless I go through hundreds of archives, I would like a button that brings up a random game from any category. That way, old games that are great but haven't been played in a while can be played by many again.
[We already have a recommendation icon pallet that will give you a random game from all categories. They are pulled from among the top rated games, so you are to be sure find old games that are great but haven't been played in a while, just like you're asking for. Our random recommended palette is next to the Top Rated in the left sidebar. -Jay]
It would be great to be able to do some kind of advanced research, for example to cross-check "puzzle game" with "top rated" and "online". Also, I would love it if there was a function that suggests other games that we might like based on the one we are playing. That would be very nice ;-)
Often, in the reviews, you can find suggestions on what the games compare to--besides providing amazing entertainment in and of itself (if I must say so myself!)
In addition, if you really love a game and want a suggestion for another like it, just ask in the comments...it's more than likely you'll get several answers from real people (who are always better at suggesting things than what a ratings matrix can do).
Multiple tag search just isn't possible for us with the current implementation of the tag pages, but it is a feature I would like to offer in the future.
And the idea of a recommendation system has been nagging at me for quite some time as well, and I've been thinking for about as long on how to implement one.
I would love to provide these features on the site, and you just might see one or both in 2012. :)
Great! Can't wait to find the "you might also like" function! ;-)
