Dude, a bunch of people reacted hours after the random game thing was gone months ago. I myself, has stopped playing games. But it's been asked a bunch of times to bring it back. So it should be back. But I understand right now that AG needs money with ads.

The random game icon was just never properly used with the current circumstances of how this site works. Yes it is a great idea to show various games without searching for them. However, the random games change every time you refresh. This gives way to questionable people who would click the random game, get 4 AP, and then go to another random game. Raise your hand if you are guilty of doing this before. *raises hand*

As great as the random game was, the system in which it used was negatively paired with the AP system. Filling that spot with advertisements was an even better idea.
