Too Many Arcade Games?

PostPosted by dcbandicoot » Sat Mar 20, 2010 8:50 pm

A suggestion: remove a ton of the less active ones (those with one name on the high score board) until the forum becomes a bit bigger. Might make high score competitions emerge.

I sort of thought that they were all part of a package. I could be mistaken though.

But what would ILMH play?

Here's the thing, while I agree that having 500 games and well, not even 100 members, makes the "competition" aspect of it rather void, however as ILMH has already pointed out to me on numerous occasions, the 500 games keep him busy, they keep a few of us busy, and so because of that I'm not sure it would be a good idea.

Anyway, I'm on the fence about it, I'll wait for more opinions.

I guess at the very list, we can trim the list? Games like Drag and Drop can certainly go. I mean, most of the games don't even have a single play. Maybe ILMH will have someone to play AGAINST if there weren't 500 of them..

For reference: arcade.php?mode=play&g=472

I dunno. I just don't see any advantages of getting rid of any games. Are they slowing down the board? Are they causing any other problems? I don't think they are, so what harm is it to have so many? I personally rarely play them, but it's nice to know I have so many to choose from on the off chance I'm here, bored, and want to play some.

To me the problem is that there are tons of games which are garbage. It's annoying to have to keep clicking around trying to find one that doesn't suck. I'd rather have an arcade with 100 good games than 500, 1/5th of which are good..

I agree with the meniality and crappiness of some of the games. Much like CRAZY DUTCH LETTER COLLECTING GAME! But I also just enjoy the simplicity of there being competition in so many different aspects.

I would recommend getting rid of the crappier games, but still maintaining a solid number so i can hold my 100+ high scores over all of your heads!

I don't really use the arcade at all, so I'll leave this to you guys to make a decision. I'm really not too fussed either way, there seem to be advantages whatever we end up doing.

I don't think it hurts anything to leave the games and it would be more work to take them down.

Lets make a deal here, DC. If you can give me a list of the games that you find pointless and/or garbage and think should be deleted, and of course providing no one else has any major objections to said list, I'd be willing to go ahead to take the time to delete these games if everyone (mainly looking at Rich and Ben) is okay with that.

Started the list. These are basically all broken or completely worthless, I think.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=90
We already have a better frogger game. Also: scoring is retarded. “Congrats, you get 10 points per level you complete. THAT’s not gonna cause ties.”

arcade.php?mode=play&g=482
If the score table doesn’t get fixed, this one is basically worthless

arcade.php?mode=play&g=137
Ball moves way too slow, have several other better breakout games anyway, takes well to long to get any kind of decent score.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=494
Uhh. WTF? Also: too retardedly easy.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=472
“Hey look! I can move the mouse from point A to point B!”

arcade.php?mode=play&g=210
I don’t think this one works.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=147
Another game that doesn’t get harder and really isn’t fun. Once you get the hang of it, you can play forever.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=53
Same. Is there anyone here that DOESN’T type fifteen WPM?

arcade.php?mode=play&g=35
Also doesn’t work. And another worthless slots game anyway.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=10
Slots. Again: press the damn button.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=12
Whatever the fuck 3 to 1 Blarney is, it requires no skill.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=22
Another shoddily put together game..

arcade.php?mode=play&g=278
There is a superior copy to this already in the arcade.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=164
Most. Pointless. Game. EVAR.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=208
…the fuck?

arcade.php?mode=play&g=111
High score doesn’t work.

arcade.php?mode=play&g=44
Game doesn’t work

Okay...

I deleted the games that weren't working. Fixed the ones with reverse scoring issues. Deleted some working games that were shit and easy, kept one or two from the list due to competitive scores.

Oh and I also deleted a few that I saw were broken too.

Thanks.

I'll deal with this when I can (unless somebody else, ie: IWND) wants to do it first. I won't get to this before Monday. It's time consuming and I have stuff to do this weekend like work and travel.
