Yeah, I think idle games should be another genre. I always try searching, but I don't know where to look

I've never heard of "idle games" before. I've seen and heard of people setting a game up so it would run for a certain amount of time without actual human input (rubber banding or turbo'ing FF3/6 on the river to get Terra a bunch of levels, for example) but the point of that was always to provide some sort of advantage to the player when returning to the game. I've never heard of a game designed to NOT be played - that sounds rather oxymoronic.

But, if an "idle game" is one designed for you to what, watch, rather than play? Wouldn't an "anti-idle game" be one designed for you to play, rather than watch? You know - what most people consider games? Sports games, shooters, strategy games, RPG's, etc.?

As for "idle games" showing up here ... I really don't care. I wouldn't be playing them, but then, I don't play 99.999% of the games here anyway, so any such game would have plenty of company.

Idle games could be described in a nutshell "make the counter count faster" games. Does watching a counter count up and every now and then clicking a thing that makes the counter count faster sound like a fun game to you?

Honestly i don't think they even classify as games per se so really have no place on armor games at all. Most of the ones out there aren't that great anyway with a few exceptions.

Anti Idle at least should be here. It's not fully idle - rather, you can play it instead of running it by itself and be faster. Other games also do that but most, such as Idle Mine, eventually become idle-only, as it's more efficient.

Anti Idle also has you be able to fight monsters in arena(horrible graphics but its fun, trust me), level up, get skillpoints, all to get more gold coins, blue coins, green coins etc from fighting. It's fun. And the level cap I think is 9,001. I've only gone to 250ish though before.

Also gardening...boring but satisfying rewards, 5 min - 24 hour plant cycle thing.

Click the Button - high reward, high interaction...faster you click it the faster you earn, the more accurate to the center you click larger the reward.

Money Printer - fully idle, prints money I think every 15ish seconds, has 160 rounds of printing. Needs you to recharge battery. If on the printer page, get 2x reward.

And more.

It's quite fun. It should be here.
