When I want to buy a COG/Hosted game, I like to know some basic information about it first, and it’s actually surprisingly hard to find anything outside the game description for a lot of them. Things like game length, romances, and how linear a story is are important to me, but there’s often no way to find out these things without playing through the game yourself. I propose that we should have a community wiki for COGs. Yes, I know there’s the developers wiki, but that contains no information about the games themselves. This wiki could contain information like the length of the game (word count), the amount and quality of romances, amount and importance of choices/stats, plot summaries, and quality of writing and characters. It could even possibly contain more spoilery things like the endings and how to achieve them if there’s any interest in that.
I don’t think this would be a HUGE project considering there are only 118 COGs/Hosteds altogether, and we could start by just tackling the official COGs at first, but it would certainly require a group effort. Would there in any community interest in such a project? Has something like this been attempted before? I would certainly be willing to contribute, having read the majority of the games available.
