==Classification method==
Please start new discussion in [[Talk:List of Applications]].
Currently, games are first divided in Free/Reimplemented/Commercial/Emulators/MMO and only then they are grouped by genre. I'd like to see the opposite, i.e. first group by genre (also in [[Template:Games navigation]]) and only inside each genre make the distinction between native/emulators, free/commercial and whatever distinction better suits that particular genre.
Note that this topic has already been briefly touched on in [[Talk:Common_Applications/Games/MMO#MMOG]] by me and AlexanderR, but more opinions are needed.

:+1 -- when browsing games, one would logically search by genre first. The genre classification scheme is more consistent with the other Common Applications pages, too, where applications are organized by type first, then by UI/platform (graphical or console). -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 12:25, 4 March 2012 (EST)
== <s>Formatting question</s> ==
The first letter of the description should be capitalized?
:There's no official policy, but it seems that most descriptions start with lowercase unless the first word is a proper name. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 06:15, 5 March 2012 (EST)
== Ordering ==
Should we start to sort the list alphabetically? [[User:Leper|Leper]] 12:24, 26 March 2012 (EDT)
:Yep, every improvement is welcome :) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 05:27, 27 March 2012 (EDT)
::Sorted [[Common Applications/Games/Free]]. I haven't sorted the Java based FPS as that section seemed odd. -- [[User:Leper|Leper]] 12:16, 27 March 2012 (EDT)
