Added byjlariviere's avatarjlariviere

It would be wonderful if I could categorize my collection! e.g. Race, RPG, Favorites

I too would like to be able to add personal categories. Some of mine:

Now Playing

Unfinished
Unfinished - High Interest
Finished
Finished - Playing for Completion

I would like to see some like the Steam client has, I want to be able to assign my own categories (i.e. Played, Not Played, Won't Play, Adventure, FPS, etc).

Typing in genres in the game shelf search will bring up the relevant games. When a game is completed it can be manually moved to a different part of the shelf. Also entering words from a game's title will give results. As will most (but not all for some reason) of the designer/publisher names on GOG's list. These genres can (more or less)be found on GOG's front page.

Action
Adventure
Racing
sport
rpg (not Role-playing!)
Shooter
Sim
Strategy


Aside from the official genres - with the exception of ''Indie'' or ''Independent'' (and with plentia Indie games in my collection, if those terms worked there'd be results) - other words that yield quality results are:-

Arcade
build
building (but not builder!)
combat
economic
educational
fantasy
fpp
horror
life
manager
Pinball
platformer
Pointandclick
puzzle
realtime
rts (not realtimestrategy!)
sci-fi
simulation
Strategy RPG
tactic
tactical
turnbased
virtual
Virtual life

No doubt there's many more. My collection is well in excess of 200+ games and this works fine. This is a very effective catagory finder and eliminates any need for other genre filters, be it along the lines of GOG's main page or otherwise. In fact because of the different possibilities for sub-genres it is a better filter and organizer than that on GOG's main page. Its just a matter of more people being aware of this.

I have 60 games in my collection now. Not being able to categorize them is starting to be a serious problem for me, and the manual sort in the game shelf just isn't a good alternative.

Similar to: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/site/a_decent_game_shelf

But I agree, the shelf needs more options.
I mean, when you have a lot of games, you want more ways to keep track of them.

I'm voting this too. My collection is still small but growing steadily (too many promotions!). It would be wonderful to be able to create extra tab and rename them as we like: cRPG, aRPG, FPS, RTS, Adventure and so on!
