Compiled list of Everybody's Suggestions about Beta. (Everyone Please Like and Share so we can get this noticed)

Summary:

1. We need a section on the Homepage that displays New Games REGARDLESS OF RATING.
2. Drop-down filters for genre listings featuring different sorting choices.
3. Change the similarities between AG 3.0 and Kongregate.
4. Bring back the old icon. The color scheme needs more....color and "roundness" is missing. (see below)
5. Move those Awkward placed ads.
6. Developers games. We wanna see em.
7. My Favourites Tab, a tab to quickly access you favourite games via the Homepage. Maybe even an About Me tab.

Long Detailed Version:

1. Previously, AG 2.0 featured a "New Games" tab on the HP which featured the 12 newest games. AG 3.0 now features a "New and Hot Games Tab" which features only 3 of the newest games and only the ones with high ratings. This prevents players from seeing games that might be "rare gems", games with mixed reviews or a certain taste which few can appreciate.I suggest the homepage feature the 6 - 8 latest games.

2. Also an idea suggested was that each genre listing should have a dropdown filter which lists the top 5 "Newest" "Most Played" "Most Popular" "Most Faved" games of that genre by rank. This allows for sorting of games by category to find the game best suited to the player. Also having a tab that lists the top ten of ALL games on the site would be a welcome addition.

3. Also, certain viewers have remarked on the similarities between the beta and that of the Rival game website "Kongregate". This includes the Genre categories, which are now set out in an exact replica of the Kongregate website. This can easily be fixed by setting out the genre lists differently so that it sets itself apart from other sites. Maybe an idea would be to use the same format as the featured games sliding animation on the very top of the page, and have buttons at the bottom for players to change tabs to a different genre. This allows for the icons of the games to be larger which solved a problem one user posed, and overall makes AG individual. Of course, that is a suggestion. The problem can easily fixed in a number of other ways, we just hope it will be fixed.

4. A small but ultimately important matter, many users were complaining that the old icon was "well not better, but more Armor Games" we want to play on this website and have it still feel like Armor Games. Color Scheme was also mentioned, some say it is a radical departure from the old AG, personally I think its suits the AG theme of the blue Shield, but it just needs a little more color. In terms of Aesthetics the "roundness" of the AG was commented to be more popular over the sharp jagged corners of the new AG.

5. Some people mentioned the awkwardly placed ads, and I have to agree. Particularly the ad bar below the Feature Games Slider, which really needs to be moved. My suggestions would be either above or below the Armor Games panel, or below the genre listing at the bottom of the page.

6. I'm pretty sure this is something you'll add later, but Developers games list link below their name needs to be returned.

7. A "My Favourite Games Tab" which could list the; Game with link, Author with link, and Game Icon. This could also be accompanied by a "About me" Type tab which list your Current Karma Rating and a link to your profile.

Please take all these views into Consideration.

I agree with almost everything that you said in this thread!

1. This is the very essence of Armorgames, without this it is no different from the hundreds, ney, thousands of other games websites out there.

2. The sorting filter could be improved but not really a massive problem.

3. YES! This is one of the first things that hit me when I looked at the beta. I asked myself, is this really Armorgames or have I stumbled upon a fake imposter? Its as I said before. Armorgames is different! This is its greatest asset!

4.Colour and roundness give a friendly and relaxing feeling to the site, not like the other sites...again. Icon... well....I'm indifferent

5. 6. 7. All not really that much of an issue for me, but the adds could be integrated a bit better, maybe.

I like the whole idea of the new page, but i don't like that there isn't a section for newly released games. If you could make a section of the newly released games then it would be perfect! :)

also, I dislike the set up of the 4 games from each genre. I don't think making the icons smaller adds anything to it, not to mention the white space the design leaves which adds nothing. you can accomplish clean design without such a minimalist approach.

Aaron has a very good point. I think each genre and its layout wastes a lot of space. One thing I really liked about the old site is how they had set up the genres with tabs. That way each game had a big icon so you could see it very clearly, and not as much space was wasted as before. This is probably one of my main problems with the new site. But keep on going armorgames, it honestly think you guys have the ability to make a rocking site!

I agree with all those suggestions, of course.

I like the idea of accessing your favorites from the home page. My idea actually is to have a separate favorites list which can be the one that always show up right at the top of the home page. It could be called your "currently playing" list, and maybe include about three games. It should be a panel rather than a drop down menu. And of course there needs to be an easy way to boot a game off the list once you're done playing it. The idea is that many games take more than one sitting to beat so it would be nice to ensure you can get back to them easily if they leave the home page.

Also, better add a random games button to the list of suggestions. Everyone loved that button.

I'd also appreciate email notifications for the forums, but I've had that gripe forever and everyone's been all "I don't wanna get swamped with emails" before they take two seconds to think about it, not realizing that most forums do it and there's no swamping involved since subscribing to topics is optional and even when you do subscribe it only sends one email no matter how many replies there are.
