Category statistics page?
« on: May 07, 2022, 06:54:33 pm »
Perhaps this is already a thing, or not. I've noticed how each item has a page which shows how many people have a particular item in collection, wish list, sell list, etc. I think it would be cool if there was maybe a way to see a condensed view of each video game platform, showing in order from most to least, the number of "in collection" logs for each game.
Yeah, you can go through each individual page and look at the number, but it would be cool to see a chart the lays them all out. I think it would be interesting to see which games for each platform that most people on the site have in their collection, and which ones almost nobody has. This came to mind when I was adding items into the collection and noticed some of them are in the 20s and 30s, with other games have hundreds and closer to a thousand users which also have them. It could be somewhat of a indication into just how uncommon, or common certain titles actually are, as far as the games.

Just a thought, and maybe this is something that's already possible unbeknownst to me.

That seems really interesting.

However I think every new item/variation is going to be at the very top of the list of least people that own it.

I've also noticed that quite allot of shovelware in quite some cases barely has any owners, but that doesn't mean that those games are uncommon it's just that aside from full set and people who collect quantity nobody is interested in them

It also inflated the numbers of uncommon to rare games because they are usually sought after by a majority of collectors and thus increasing the numbers even though they are more rare than shovelware or in some cases even low rarity affordable sought after titles.

Check sega saturn for example US version of panzer dragoon saga has 180+ owners.

If you check almost any shovel ware title on saturn it has way less than that. even sought after more common titles such as galactic attack have less onwers. and if your checking out saturn sets in the wild market place etc, they mostly consist of shovelware titles not panzer dragoon saga.

or heck compare the mario party games to fire emblem path of radiance. even though the mario party games are far more common.

More people being interested in certain titles even though it's way more rare does inflate numbers because for the other titles there is just a lack of interest people don't want those in the collection or prioritize certain rare games over even affordable good games. the only way in which such a system will have any kind of accuracy is if all people would collect everything for a console.
