Classification method

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). -- pointone 12:25, 4 March 2012 (EST)


Should we start to sort the list alphabetically? Leper 12:24, 26 March 2012 (EDT)

Yep, every improvement is welcome :) -- 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. -- Leper 12:16, 27 March 2012 (EDT)
I think I've sorted the rest. Closing. -- Karol (talk) 13:56, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
