I dislike a lot of games, but unless they violate the site’s rules they should be allowed to stay on.

They are still technically games.

Thing is, they are pretty much out of mind until someone complains about them.

And the great thing is, you aren’t forced to play them. ;) I must say though, PaperCup is getting better.

I love PaperCup.

Wait? There’s garbage games out here? No wait, they’re buried under all other promoted games

Anyway, Kongregate is supposed to be mecca for all indie developers, that includes amateurs too and frankly said, Kongregate is unique for the feature that allows anyone to upload their first (and latter) games.

The good thing in this that any game may rise from its birth ashes and get a good rating. In sites like Newgrounds or Armorgames, not all developers even dare to submit their game which might have potential, not to mention qualification standards.

Just ignore the amateur games if you’d like (though, who’s going to give credit for them now if everyone would do so?) and pick out the promoted games kongretate staff and KongBot is picking for us, the players

And take a look at my first point. Garbage games are barely visible, especially when you consider how many good games there are to steal away attention from amateur games. Even if you found them, you cannot say kongregate sucks just because of them as there’s other good games out there, which by the way, were new at one time

How do we even get to these amateur games?

I agree with this.

A blam system would be so awesome.

Think of the benefits:
1. the average quality of game goes up
2. the community actually has a part in something on the site for the first time.
3. butthurt devs flocking to OT to complain about their bad games getting blammed.

But kong won’t do that because it would mean they wouldn’t be able to pimp out game making programs like Stencyl and then profit off of the influx of bad games.

papercup is the best dev on this site… period…

yea i like the whole whistleblower system from newgrounds, but arent very active there because kongregate is so much better designed and structurized.

but a similar whistle/blam-system would be cool

amen I sent Kong a message dealing with this same issue, I’m not sure if they will look into it or not, I’m guessing it’s not against the rules but it makes other true real devs. look bad. Please stop with these troll spam games, it’s not funny anymore!

A lot of games are being copied and modified. It’s getting extremely hard to recognise original content.

I agree with Darkruler.

You may not enjoy these games, but they’re valuable because they help the developer get experience and feedback. Taking it off would just discourage new talent, and that’s not right. Besides, some people might enjoy the games anyways.

Take my old games for example. I refined them and updated them, and they’re a lot better then they used to be. If they were taken down for not being awesome the moment it came out, then that’s unfair to everyone.

I agree we need to get rid of stupid shitty troll games such as this. The developer obviously made it to get the D sign.

Well, if they had a section for beginner games looking for feedback (or other testing), then that would probably satisfy both sides (assuming people actually adhered to it).
