With the amount of games covered, and the diversity of those games, a way to ignore news I am not even slightly interested in, or would or could be interested in but it gets lost in the deluge of noise.
I have been playing video games for a long time. I know what I like and I definitely know what I don't like. I have no interest in games with no pve content such as mobas or arena or survival games. Some people have no interest in games with forced pvp. I don't mind as long as the games have quests or non-grind pve as well. I have no interest in games with no character progression and heavy, well developed rpg systems. I know a lot of people come here just for traditional rpg news. I am stuck scrolling through the news section and ignoring most items. I used to put time into trying to figure out what type of game a game actually was, but after realizing almost all of them are games I don't care about I am now in the habit of just ignoring anything I don't know. Which leads me to not learn anything about new mmorpgs - the main reason I used to come to this site.
I disagree with a lot of steam tags but at least that would narrow down news to a manageable amount of noise I could put some effort into sifting through and may be able to find out some news about new games I actually am interested in.
It would be great if this tag system could also be used for the games list so I can finally sort it and use that too. The general gamers this site seems to be aimed at can still receive all the news about all games, and the users with more specific tastes can also sort out the noise.
I don't see any down sides to this, other than label hippies calling games like Zelda rpgs and the usually nonsense you get from them, unless it impacts advertising. But this would be a way to have more impactful targeted advertising. Or just always include the articles from companies that pay you to post them always show up when we sort.
I was just about to hit post and saw a big "tags" section I can type in and don't know what that's about, but if there is a way to sort news and games by tags it isn't obvious to me. Is there?
