“50 Games Like” Website

Interesting.  I found a website that specializes in finding games similar to other games.  So if you finish one, you can look for other, similar games.

To be honest, I’m struggling to find a way to explain that doesn’t involve just repeating the title, and I probably don’t need to do that.

Here’s the website, with a sample game searched.

Interestingly, you can’t use the search bar they provide.  All it will do is return a list of games and the overall rating.  I checked the original versus a game searched using their search bar, and the difference is, the search bar goes to a URL that includes “/games-search/” whereas what you really want is the URL that includes “/games-like”. Moreover, the search bar has the game name as “game%20name”, but when it is actually searching for games like what you want, it does the search using “game-name”.

So ignore the search bar.  Go up to the URL bar and type in the name of the game you want, but with dashes instead of spaces.

I hope that is clear.  If not, poke around until you figure it out, or ask me to clarify.

  1. Yeahhhh, here’s my experience.

    I put in Hexen, which was the best game that ever existed. A magic filled violence fest of 1st person shooter with rpg elements. Ultimate goal is to kill a dimension hopping/ruling demon.

    So the second suggestion they give me? “Lovely Planet Arcade”.

    Of course the next 20 were games that looked wicked cool. So maybe they had a bad data bump or something.
