Hi All, Over the past two months the site has grow quite a bit and we now feature over 20 games. That said, I was hoping to get input into what kind of features should be adding to the site next? Also, I would be very interested to now what people like and dislike about the site at this time. Thanks for Your Time _______________________________________ Understanding is a three edged sword...

At the time of this reply; this post had 66 views and not one reply. Since I know that doesn''t mean that my site is perfect I hoping that to get some ideas on:

- what I can improve to help retain users;
- what I should add to increase traffic;
- how can I get more people to vote; there are currently over 40 registered users but very few voting members

Lastly, if you have a game please submit it.

Thanks

I think the idea is really bizaare. I just noticed a chess game being compared to a space action game. Different people have different tastes, and such comparisons are not really useful. What is the point of your site? I can''t find anywhere to actually download the games other than links to the actual developer websites. Some of the games aren''t free either. How do you rate a game if you have to pay for it first? Do you want people to rate a game based on the review and/or screenshots? I can''t see such a site becoming very popular just because the idea of the site doesn''t seem to have any useful purpose.

Ardaxus,

Thanks for your comments; I am planning to add a feature that will allow people to directly download the games. As for comparing the games; some are free and the others mostly have playable demos that can be used to make the comparison.

As for the the useful purspose; it allow developers to have there games compared with their peers. Also, I am continuing to grow the features of the site to better help developers.

Your probably right that a action game should not be compared with a action game; and I am planning to expand the number of ladders (if that is what people want)? That said, in for a game to be game of the year it is necessary to compare it to all other games?
