3 new features for the RGR Search engine. BigNATE gave me the idea for the 'Random Game' idea.

Random Game
You can now have the RGR randomly pick a game for you by clicking the 'Random' button. It randomly picks a game based on your specifications. For example, if you type in 'mario' in the search box and click 'Random', it'll randomly bring up a game with 'mario' in the title. If click to display only game boy games and click 'Random', it'll randomly pick a game boy game. And of course if you have no specifications, it'll randomly pick any game in the RGR.

First Game
This is for users who are impatient or in a hurry and want to go directly to the game they are searching for. So if I wanted to search for 'Moto Roader' and wanted the RGR to take me directly to that game, I type in 'Moto Roader' and click '1st' and I'll be brought to that game automatically. Now there are some games with the same title as others, the RGR will randomly return either the one with the most views or the one with the highest rating. Just like the 'Random Game' feature, you can adjust your specifications. For example, I can click 'Sega Genesis' and than type in 'Bomberman' and it'll direct me to the 1st 'Bomberman' game the RGR finds for the Sega Genesis.

Country Origin on Search Results
Search results now tell you which country that specific game was released in. (U) = USA, (J) = Japan, (UEJ) = USA, Europe and Japan, etc. This will help you to avoid games released in certain countries. I also made little flags to represent which country each game is from.

Interesting new features I like the "First Game" one a lot. But will the Country Origin be searchable at all? Might be worth adding in somewhere so people can sort by games by (J) games or (U) games only etc...

JigSaw : Yeah I plan on doing that eventually. It is sorta searchable, if you went to a game's page and it said the countries origin and you clicked it, you'd get a search result of all games of the same country. I do plan to eventually make it searchable from the index though.

Thanks David, I was thinking of a Random button of some sort before I realized bigNATE suggested it. Now when I'm extremely bored, I'll just click there :)
