This is something I really wish would return it will especially be useful around Halloween when someone wants to play something spooky.

I’d still want to sorting options, rather than filters, for example to be able to order by release date.

The current result sorting makes the assumption AG has reviewed the game, so new titles in any given genre aren’t easy to discover. Those final pages of unrated games don’t appear to be in a logical order.

I am enjoying searching thru the database with it, and i have come to (easily) some titles that i have missed out on at the A-Z database, especially when combining different elemmnts (like PnC + Sci-Fi..etc) wasnt that effective. 

But why are you missing out on the date(s) and the release periods (like 90s, 80s..etc) ? I assume it would be a long list of years scrolling down the page?, or is there another reason behind leaving it out?
