Default Arcade no longer competitve, no longer fun

When the gprime.net arcade first came out, there were about 15 games that people played and it was really competetive for the high scores. But now, I checked and there's about 500 games! Probably even MORE!

It's not even a competitive battle for #1 anymore.

I think we should select the top 20 games and get rid of the rest. That way there will be less quantity, but more quality.

well, if we did that, it'd be back to normal, and I'm sort of fine with that, so long as no cheaters play the game and get high scores nobody can normally beat

The arcade is restricted to members only, correct? If it is, make it a bannable offense if a member cheats on the arcade. That would stop the majority from cheating.

The problem being, we have no reliable way to detect cheating, other than if the score is totally unreasonable.

And if it wasn't totally unreasonable it would probably be possible to beat. But, if the scores for a particular game are in the hundreds and there is one outlier in the thousands, well, you get the idea.

The problem with that statement is that "gamerooms" went away at about the same time there was proliferation of bad grammer

Kinda bringin back an old topic, because I was doing some searching on topics having to do with the arcade. I think the arcade should be more regulated. I'm not really worried about cheaters really, because the number that play in the arcade is relatively low, and cheaters should be easily found. I just know there are a ton of games that do not work, and also games where low score counts, like darts, and golf, and the rankings are reversed....aka a guy who shoots 120 in golf will beat someone who shoots 65. Those games become marathons and are completely useless, and either the rankings should be fixed for them or just totally removed from the arcade. If the mods need help knowing which ones don't work I know I've come across probably 30 or so that don't.

K, no problem, it will take a while to compile it all though.....Do you want the useless marathon ones as well, such as the golf one and other ones where the rankings are reversed? Because those are actually incredibly pointless to have.....theres a lot of those actually as well.....

I'm in the process of going through and deleting anything that doesn't have a high score on it. We'll see what's left after that.
