Below are a variety of game recommendation questions that we saw on the gaming Stack Exchange, Arqade, during its life. I have split these into separate answers, categorised by what is wrong with them in the hope that we can use the information in this post to build our own policy on game recommendations.
All of these questions were raised by users of Arqade. Some of these users dropped by just to ask this question and some of these users went on to become established users, so the quality levels of the posts varies quite wildly.
The purpose of this post is so that we as a site can rapidly analyse a large number of questions that the internet in general would deem as "game recommendation" questions, so we can either fine tune our policy on what is acceptable or determine that game recommendation questions are in fact off topic.
