Right now the ‘trending’ section shows 0/9 idle games, the ‘hot new games’ section shows 2/17 idle games, the ‘top monthly games’ section is 3/17 idle games, and there are a grand total of 2 idle games on the main page. For comparison, SAS: Zombie Assault 4 shows up 3 times ITSELF. That one game is taking up more front page space than the entire idle game genre.
Really think you guys are blowing this out of proportion a little bit.
People enjoy opening up an idle game and chatting, why does that bother you so much, and can you give a legitimate reason why that shouldn’t be allowed? If you don’t want to play an idle game, don’t. It’s not that hard. No one is opening up the page for you, locking your browser, and tying you to the chair.
I can understand a request for a customizable homepage, but to say ‘I don’t like this type of game so I don’t think they should be allowed’ is a tad self-absorbed.
