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

Should be an option to ignore or not, more options are better. Good idea, voted.

I hope this is implemented.
Ignore the word "The" as well as the words "A" and "An", as you're supposed to when alphabetizing.
It should be an option to choose whether or not we want to take into account the "The".

Any other media archive worth it’s salt would ignore “the”. It’s near universal.

This should not be default but an option.
This should definitely be an optional toggle. I imagine the work to standardize and allow multiple options would also help with trying to create the graph for when you launch games via Cortana - where people may say the title with or without the article in front.
They can't do that. Devs name it, not Studios

This also holds true within Films and TV: some titles ignore "The" in the title (anyone who has The Mummy trilogy will find that 2 out of 3 movies fall under "T"). I'd go one step further with this idea and ensure that series (movies or TV) are listed in series order - so annoying when Star Wars or Harry Potter film orders are all over the place.
I don't agree. At least for locales other than English. It's somewhat confusing when english titles ignore articles for sorting but other languages don't.
The first letter of the title of the Game, movies and videos should be in order, no more starting with the word "The" as their are billions under it!
I agree -- this is super annoying.

YES, this drives me crazy
For me is a no, I don't like it. I love the way it is right now.

I second this motion
Also, the words 'A' or 'An'. Articles should not be considered when sorting a title alphabetically.
Oh my Gosh I would have to learn my list all over Lego games might me in L and ESO might actually be in E lol
