What other way is there?

Maybe a like or dislike button? I think this is the same reason Youtube switched from their star system to the like dislike system.

Or, an even better idea would be to base if off of favourites and of frequency of play. (original suggestion was page 600)

Topic: Bloons TD 5 / General Suggestions Thread

I have a suggestion. Can you please change the graphic of the Gattling Gun’s Ray of Doom? The rapid flashing is hurting my eyes and head and it is one of my favourite towers, the only one that you can aim, in fact.

If it could be changed to a solid beam instead of a flashing one, or if there were a button to turn the flashing off, that would be nice.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

The “Recommended Games” list on the front page. It recommends games to me if I rate them highly. The problem with that is that I rate games whether they are good or not, not whether I like them. For example, there might be a well crafted shooter on kongregate that’s highly polished and I appreciate it, so I give it a 4 or 5 star depending on how well the game plays. However, I do not give it a 4 or 5 star because I like it.

I look in the “Recommended Games” list and I see games that I would honestly hate to play, but I’m sure have merit.

In addition to that, the most frequent occurrence of games in the “Recommended Games” list are games that I have already played, even liked, but haven’t rated either because I forgot, or just because I frequently don’t scroll down to notice the “give this game a star” feature.

So in conclusion, I think there should be a different way for figuring out which games a user might want to play other than its rating. And games that have already been played but not rated shouldn’t appear in the “Recommended Games” list.
