I've been lurking and listening to the podcasts for a while, but thought I'd finally jump in to let everyone here know about a personal project I've been working on that you all might be interested in.  It's a searchable listing of all computer and console RPG's that I can find on the internets.  It's still a work in progress and I'm slowly updating it as I get time.  Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.

And before anyone rages about why X is rated higher than Y, what the hell am I thinking, and why Blah doesn't have the Shiny Pony tag, I'm just pulling data from multiple other sources and displaying it.  I don't have any control over what tags a game has or what it's rating is.  I can work on messaging the data to make it make more sense though if you find anything that seems totally out of line.  Just let me know.

Woah!  Great job Jahmis!  This is a great idea and I wish more games were listed like this, it'd be way easier to find titles to scratch a particular itch.

Nice project you got there.

Just a little FYI: platform buttons become like 2400 pixel height after clicking one (on Firefox at least)

Oh, thanks.  I hate all the cross-browser issues you always need to be looking out for.  I do all my work on Chrome so I didn't notice it.  I'll get it fixed.

And thanks.  I'm glad you like it.  Let me know what you think would make it even better.

You might want to throw some support for Opera as well.

Wow! Nice one :o

This is perfect for when I'm in the mood for playing something but I'm not sure what. I can just search the things I like and see what pops up!

You could try adding something like a feedback thing, mainly to help if someone has some games for you to list or if something is inaccurate.
edit: it may also be helpful (if you can) to specify the region of the release dates and the platforms, since a lot of games are released several years apart in different regions.

You've got Baroque listed as a PS1 game. 

edit: I guess I should have checked to see the JP release info before saying something stupid

This is seriously a cool tool you've created here.

I honestly wish more folk became ambitious and created some encyclopedic hub for all games/genres that worked just like this. Awesome efforts buddy!

Thanks for all the support.  I'm glad you like it.  I've added a section to each game page that lists other similar games to the one you're looking at.  It's still rough and I'm going to keep working on it, but let me know if it seems useful or if it's totally off base.  One thing I'm going to do is make it take platforms into account, which it's not doing right now.  So you'll see games on totally unrelated platforms to the one you're looking at, which may or may not be interesting to you.

And a couple follow-ups to comments...

I looked at this on Opera and it seems to work just fine.

Feedback is always good, so I'll at least be adding an email address on the About page.  But I've been thinking about adding comments for each game page too.  What do all think?

And about listing the region for each release, I don't know if I can get that info, but I'll look into it.
