Lately I've been toying with the idea of making a site with a database of independently developed games similar to a portal, but different . There would be a top ten list or whatever, as well as maybe a "10 newest" or random game list on the home page, like a portal, but rather than allowing you to download the game straight off the site and taking a good chunk of the profits, it would just link to the game's web site, allowing for purchase directly from the developer. So here's where I'd like some input: 1) Has this already been done a billion times? I seem to remember seeing a post by someone on these boards saying it would be interesting to do something like this. and 2) If I did go ahead with it, I was thinking I could boost the site's content rather quickly if I just manually went around and added people's games, rather than asking permission, or having them choose to add the game. Since all I'm really doing in the end is linking to their site, and potentially helping them make money, there's no reason I should have to ask permission, right? I mean, it's no different from google linking to someone's site without asking. I'm currently pausing the development of my game waiting for an update to the engine I'm using and I need something to do, so now seems like a good time to go ahead with it unless you all can convince me that it's pointless. Edit: Typo. I hate typos.
