    Who thinks we should change it to where games are listed in the Directory Categories by review scores instead of alphabetical? Thus, the best rated games in each category would be listed first.

    I think people's opinions about games vary so much, that even a majority here might not be an accurate reflection about a game. I mean we have some REALLY great games in the directory that only have 0-1 ratings and those games would be stuck at the bottom of the list where they dont belong.

    It may also make it harder for people to find games they are interested in by name. There have been several games that I couldnt remember the exact spelling for but I knew the gist of the name. Having them in alphabetical order would still allow me to find games like that. Whereas by ratings only it would be near impossible to find the game and the search only works if you match the name exactly.

    Yup. I agree. Having it arranged alphabetically will make it easier to find the game that you want to find.

    Cat pretty much sums it up, it'd be nice to have it as an option though if possible.

    That is a good point, Cat:). Hmmmm, we could try a combination of the two where only the top three or five games based on scores are listed at the top for each category and the rest are listed alphabetically.
