Give the option to exclude Not For Resale games

Kory 1 year ago updated 12 months ago 4

It's cool that these games are included, but they often clog search results and they're almost never what I'm looking for. For example, if you search "Mario GBA" you get 29 results, 10 of which are Not For Resale titles. That's over 1/3!  Maybe give the option to filter them like is currently done with region. A little option that says "Include Not For Resale Titles" and let people pick.

We can implement something that excludes all variants, but I don't think we can easily remove just "not for resale".  

What do you think about that?

That would block out collector's editions, Greatest Hits, etc, and I wouldn't want to have that info be hidden. I thought it would be doable to just exclude games that have "Not For Resale" in their title from showing up in searches, but I don't want to mess up the search in other ways to accomplish that.

Thanks for that feedback.  Excluding variants would be a toggle, so you can turn it back on if it was implemented and turn off if desired.  Some people have asked about removing variants in the past, but I'm not sure we can implement specific variants to be excluded.  For example someone who wants Greatest Hits removed or another wants Limited Editions removed.  

I'll see how popular this request is before deciding on implementation.  I'll think about it in the mean time for how best to implement it too.

Was about to make a request for a feature to filter out all variants and I saw this one and figured it's good enough. Hope that gets implemented. Seems perfectly reasonable to me to assume that if you want to filter out NFR you should also want to filter out greatest hits, 5-screw, etc.
