Why the heck have you put in links to prev/next games in the margins when we are playing a game? It is extremely annoying with all such irrelevant things on the screen. Show the game we are currently playing and nothing else.

Agreed. I'm finding it impossible to play some shooter games, I just keep on accidentally clicking the prev/next links. It wouldn't be so bad if they weren't right next to the game. Very inconvenient.

I am not sure why this feature is needed? I tried some of them and they have nothing to do with the current game? This is what tags are for, if you want a similar game click the tags and look at similar ones.

Yeah i noticed this aswell, not only at that game but even now on the forums this appears for me.

Previous/Next buttons are on every game, they show up after around 15 seconds of play.  In no case that I've experienced, were they near my actual game window - but maybe you have very small windows? I'd love to see a screenshot if you could.  They seem very unobtrusive to me.

Mine are  way outside the game window at the edge of screen. I don't think you could mis-click it so i didn't mind it really. The games for prev and next always same on a game. Normally i don't think they are related? What is the list for next and prev based on? For the random game thing?

I'd figured really they tied together the newly introduced many sub-categories, that I'd offered some mild critique of before, and that I then reckoned they finally made some fairly good sense of, instead.

But I take it this isn't the case? Me, I find them an annoying distraction, then again knowing how us humans are conservative by nature & so tend to dislike whatever New and Unexpected things, I figure before we know we'll be used to them to the point where we won't even notice.

I agree that the "prev/next links" are bothersome. In some games where you move the cursor around a lot, it's easy to accidentally click these "prev/next links".

I don't know if these links are misplaced for me, due to me having add-ons like NoScript and such, but the "prev/next links" are next to my game window. Like, RIGHT NEXT to it. So it's way too easy to accidentally click them, and have the whole page load away from my active game. I actually had to replay a level just now, because I accidentally clicked that godforsaken "prev/next link".

At least have it open up in a new tab, so our active game isn't affected!

They're on the edge of my screen, and I have NoScript on and a bunch of stuff.

But whatever, I can see how it might interfere, since that is what is being reported on, right? Me, except for the visual distraction it really doesn't bother me. On an interesting sidenote: Clicking out of screen will otherwise cause your game to stop ;) Thankfully many modern games seem to catch this, so indeed will stop; it used to be and not at all long ago you'd mostly go off-game, and by the time you frantically got back on to the proper screen, it'd usually be game over.
