  1. Option to Filter or Sort for Games You've Played

    A new menu item in the my games and apps called "Played Games" where we can see all games ever played on the account. There should be a filter to see which games are disc based and backwards compatible (or in other words played on the account but not digitally purchased on the account).
    -This way instead of remembering, guessing or keeping outside lists we can quickly see which games are backwards compatible on disc.
    -Maybe we can also directly let the game be installed from played games and then after downloading put the disc in for verification to play.

    • Change “Sort by size” to Include Add-On Content Size with Main Game Size

      For example, Assassin’s Creed Origins indicates its size is 49 GB when you select “Sort by size”, but if you go to “Manage” menu it turns out its size is actually 72 GB because of all the DLC installed. Sorting also takes only 49 GB into account, so sorting is incorrect for total games sizes.

      • Ability to Collapse Groups

        the newly added groups feature is a great way to organize games and other content. but if there are many items added to a group it is as confusing to browse/navigating as browsing the whole list of games.
        allowing to collapse groups would be a great improvement! so one can navigate more quickly to the particular group, open it and select the item wanted.

        making groups collapsable on home too would also be a big improvement!

        • Allow Sorting of Games by Digital and Disc-based Games

          It would be nice to seperate my games into two lists. One of games I need the disk for, and one of games that are downloaded and can be played as is.

          • Ignore Copyright and Trademark Symbols in Game Titles When Sorting

            At the moment some games with multiple installments like Far Cry look like they're incorrectly sorted because you apparently consider copyright and trademark symbols to be part of the game name.

            Please ignore these symbols for sorting.

            • Ignore the Word "The" When Sorting Alphabetically

              Some films in the Films and TV app ignore the word "The" when sorting alphabetically. I would like all Films to behave this way. Additionally, this would be useful when sorting your games

              • Ability to Identify Games Acquired Through Subscriptions Like Game Pass, Games With Gold, or Purchased

                You've got a great library of games, but you can't remember which games were installed through Game Pass, which games were part of your Gold Subscription, or a birthday gift. Let us know how important it is to identify where games came from by voting, and tell us in the comments how you'd like to see this idea work!

                • Allow Grouping of Games into Folders

                  I know this is something already being implemented if a form, but I would like to be able to group games into folders just like a Windows PC. I'd like to have folders for Far Cry, Halo, Call of Duty, etc to keep these together while trimming down on the size of my games list, making everything more organized overall.

                  • Allow Nicknames for Games and Apps and Allow Sorting by this Criteria

                    It would be nice to allow us to give nicknames to games to sort them in our way. Make the games name be the default nickname, and if people is bothered by symbols like the copyright one, or the word The at the start of the name of a game, they can solve it themselves

                    • Split the Ready to Install list into "Full Games" and "Demos"

                      Right now, "Ready to install" shows all possible games that are ready to install, including demos. Let's make it a little easier to filter out the Demos, or maybe other types of games. Vote for this idea to show us how much you like it, and use the comments to tell us how you'd like it to work!

                      • Add more timeframes to the Sort by Last Played filter

                        In the current sort categories, when I sort by Last Played, I'm only seeing the games I've played today, this week, and 30+ days or something (not looking at it right now). What that means functionally is that there are times when I've come back to my console a week and change later, and basically have to search through the entire pile of all my installed games again, rather than having it be just a few clicks from the top. Add a few more time categories here in between those, please.

                          • Filter Games and Apps by Genre

                            With digital sales making it cheap and easy to amass a large library of content, it'd be nice to have an option to sort your library according to game genre. RPG, FPS, RTS, Adventure, Horror/Survival, etc.

                            • Allow Tiles to Be Moved And Arranged, Similar to Pins

                              Many of the games you own in “Games” are a mess alphabetically. For example, some even have “Full Game” at the beginning of its title so they are all alphabetized by F instead of the true title.

                              Please give us the ability to arrange and customize the order of our games and apps in the actual games and app sections...not just pins.

                              Thanks!
