How are top games for the day determined? Most views? Most new content?

Top 50 is too much. But if they must all appear on the frontpage at least make it look more sleek

How can I make it more sleek? Any sites out there with something similar?

Top 20 and...
I'd personally like to see the top 10-20 games and then, if possible, see random games from the top 100-200. That way other games have a better chance at hitting the top instead of the ones that are always there until the next game show.

(For example, show the top 20 and then 30 random titles from the next 100-200)

I think the exposure for the less known (but still popular) games would be a good thing.

Of course, I could be just out in left field here...

Either way, I like the new front page. It's different, which takes a little getting used to, but its more functional.

Left justified
The top 50 is great, but I'd recommend left justifying each column. It looks messy with each column centered.

Aldie,
I like the latest front page. This is the best yet.
I would like to see you keep the top 50.
Left justifying the top 50 may make it a little easier to read.

I hope you dont take any of my comments bad, the site is looking awesome.

My suggestion would be to left justify it. Sorry I cant help you even more, it just looks jumbled on the screen.

This is it. I think last version of the frontpage can be the definitive one.

looks good overall! Just for aesthetic purposes you might want to figure out why in Safari the top 50 games are all bunched on the left side of the window. This makes it look odd. This is more important for people just discovering the site than us regulars - we want them to stay!

I really like it!

Nice, I like it. Especially that it remembers if you've "closed" a tab.

The last couple of days have been interesting, not knowing what I would see when coming here. This is the best yet. Can't wait for the additional tabs to work.

Keep the Hot List showing the top 50, if for no other reason than it keeps LotR and BlueMoon on the list

Great!!
Wow!! What an improved product it ended up becoming!! Extremely nice work, Aldie!! I love the new front page with the tabs and the way it highlights where your mouse is and all the borders, etc...is just wonderful... I think Top 25 games may be enough but, heh, you got the top 50 on so let's run with it...like the new images, new games tabs as well so easy to see what is being added to the site and keep up with the latest and greatest...probably available before I just never noticed it!!

Thank you! Thank you!

Happy Gaming All!!
