    I've noticed that there there are often threads in the Games section where people ask "who is still playing X", or "What do you think of X" when they want information on games.

    Perhaps as "Game Database" could be added to the existing databases where people could enter the name of the game from a list, give it a quick rating and check whether they are still playing it currently. A comment section would be nice, but that could open a can of worms.

    Users could then just do a quick check to see who is still playing any particular game and perhaps make a judgment on whether they would like to purchace the game based on the overall ratings. I know that users ratings are a very subjective thing, and that people could give a crap rating to any game which is why I felt a comment section may be helpful.

    I think that a lot of the people here on TPU would be honest in their evaluations and would try to be somewhat objective in their comments.

    Just a thought ... anyone else thing this might be a good addition to TPU?

    No, a database like the cpu/gpu database where people could search through it.
    We can already put the games we are playing in our sigs or whatever.

    Would be useful for multiplayer games. Especially older ones.

    Hmmm ... doesn't look like there are a whole lot of people interested in something like this.
    I thought that if there was enough interest that it might lead to a TPU members gaming server and we could also have some kind of leaderboard or something.

    Maybe instead of the title I chose for the thread I should of threatened a moderator or something to get people to look at it. :laugh:
