Frequently Asked Questions:
Why are the "games with similar ratings" often so different?
Whereas other video game sites determine "similar games" by genre, gameplay, and
other content, reccr
bases similarity entirely on users' tastes.
when this FAQ was written, Rock Band 3
was listed as being
100% similar to Cave Story
; even though the two games are
nothing alike, the similarity means that 100% of the users who rated both games rated
them both the same, and thus it's likely that anyone else would like one as much as
they like the other, despite how different the games themselves are.
How do I submit a new game?
If a game is not listed on reccr
and you'd like to submit it for addition, you can
do so here
. The option to submit a new game for addition
will also appear if you perform a search and a direct match is not found.
Why are you using the cover art from one platform's version of a game rather than
When a game is available on multiple platforms, we prefer to use the cover art that shows
the most artwork and the least platform branding. Typically this is the Windows or OSX
version of a game. Ideally, we like to use cover art with no
platform branding, as
we have for Bioshock
Why are there two separate entries for some games?
If a game is available both for mobile / portable platforms (like the PSP, DS, and iOS devices)
and "sit-down" platforms (like Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360), it will have one entry for mobile
versions and one entry for non-mobile versions, because in most cases there are significant
differences between the mobile and non-mobile versions of a game, but not many differences
between different mobile versions or different non-mobile versions. If you know that there
major differences between versions of a game that are listed together (for
instance, if the Wii version of a game has significantly different gameplay from the Xbox 360
and PS3 versions), please leave a comment about the differences in the game's "comments"
If you discover that there are multiple entries for mobile versions of the same game, or
multiple entries for non-mobile versions of the same game, please
let us know
and we'll get them merged.
Are you going to add more platforms?
More platforms are gradually being added to reccr
. If there's a
platform you'd like to see on reccr
, let us know
and we'll add it to our to-do list!
How can I find my friends on reccr?
There's currently no way to search for specific users on reccr
. If you'd like to
invite friends to follow you on reccr
, you can give them
your profile link.
Why does reccr want me to login via another service?
uses other service providers to authenticate users for simplicity and
security. Doing so means that you can login to reccr
instantly without having to
manually create a new account, and it means that reccr
doesn't have the additional
security risk and overhead of storing users' passwords and email addresses. As stated on
the sign-in page, reccr
will never post anything to your Facebook, Twitter, or any
other service without your permission, and reccr does not store users' email addresses,
and will never email you except in direct reply to any support emails you have sent to
