So, there used to be (still are?) websites where you would rate movies by how much you like them. The website would then look at everyone's ratings and look for similarities in order to suggest movies that you might like or guess how much you will like a given movie.

I was just wondering, is that a very complex algorithm? Are there tools already available for doing such analysis? Is that something that could possibly be implemented here on BGG? That would be awesome.

There is such a module on the individual game pages. Normally you'll find it somewhere on the bottom.

Scroll down towards the bottom of the page on a particular game and you will find a module labelled "You Might Also Enjoy...".

This feature already exists. Our in-house statistics freakenthusiast Matthew Gray has already produced such an algorithm, although to my knowledge it doesn't take into account your own preferences. (Matthew has been a bit secretive with the algorithm .) It assumes that if you like the game you're looking at, you might also like another.

You'll find this item on every game's page under the module 'You Might Also Enjoy...'. You may need to activate it to make it visible: do that with the 'Customize Layout' link on the top right of every game page.

Well, that's awesome. The features on those old movie websites seemed to be quite a bit more robust, but this is still very cool. Thanks guys.

Also not mentioned are geekbuddies. As you find people that share your interests, you can make them a geekbuddie. Then you can can filter game ratings to your geekbuddies and get a feel for if you will like a particular game.
