I realize that there have been many previous suggestions on ways to improve the GeekBuddy feature. Some of them are actually higher on my wishlist, e.g. filtering out video games and RPGs when looking at overall ratings. Nonetheless, I'd like to suggest a change that should be easy to implement and would prove (for me at least) quite helpful: a number of plays column on the GeekBuddy Analysis display for any given game.

I understand that not everyone who rates or comments upon games records plays, but having that in mind would simply be part of the process when learning the tendencies of those on your list. I already know the tastes of my GeekBuddies pretty well, but having an indicator of their experience level for a particular game without having to go look for it would be nice.

The current display uses only four columns, and adding one labeled Plays would actually be slightly narrower than the thinnest currently in use (Rating). I think the resulting slight decrease in column width for Comment would be more than compensated for by the additional data.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Interesting idea. I am generally happy with my GeekBuddy's commentary, but the extra info wouldn't hurt. Whether or there is a cost in extra database queries is possibly an issue.
