What is ?
is the amazing automated video game recommender! Rate a few games you've played, and
it'll magically figure out what other games you'll enjoy! The more games you rate, the better
gets at making recommendations.
How does it work?
As people rate games, reccr
keeps track of how "similar" games' ratings are. (For instance,
if a dozen people each give the same two games 5 hearts, then reccr will see that those two games are
more similar than two games where a dozen people have given one game 5 hearts and the other game 3 hearts.)
goes through all of the games in its database (that's
games and counting!) and compares them to all of the games that you've rated, to compile a list of the games
it thinks you'd like the best, based on their similarity to games that you already like.
Then it compiles that data into your "Recommendations" list, after weeding out any games
that you've already rated, or added to either your "Ignore" list or your "Want" list.
(It's actually a little more elegant than that, but that's the basic gist of it.)
What's next for ?
is currently in beta, and we have tons of additional features on the to-do list.
