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.

When I think of grouping I think of Plex Media Server with my movies. They have the option to display individual games or collections. It would be nice if games came tagged for a certain series/collection and the view could be set to default to show collections or individual. If collections are visible than all Battlefield games would be grouped into a single icon that says Battlefield or Battlefield Series. Click that would then show the game, in chronological order, within the series/collection. This would save visual space as libraries grow with more games.

I agree, much as the groups are nice. But an overhaul would be betters. a redesign with added sorting options of all kinds as well as option to manually put things where we want within the "folders" even after selecting a sorting option. Let things feel free, not constricted (constricted feeling example: like trying to search for an item in a store and the place doesnt include the sort option of LOW to HIGH....i hates that. it forces user to waste time scrolling thru pages n pages of things when cost is important ... -_- )
I would like to have these folders implemented into the groups. When I move from my homepage down to my first groups page, it would be nice to have folders in addition to games and apps pinned there.

Very much would like this
I would like to see a plex like view to my games and apps, along with more customization options to put titles in order. For example all the *** creed games appear in alphabetical order. It would be nice to organise my libary in chronological order and maybe see a synopsys of the game when clicking it like plex. Perhaps a menu down the left side to view 360 games in their own folder from xb one games. Open emu is another good program to take inspiration from for this
Add an option to see alle the game you've hidden from your games list (like on PS4). If I hide a game from the list, the only way to find it is to actively lokk for it in the store, wich is very unconvinient considering there might be several versions (with the same name, like the master chiel collection) of the same game.

You should allow the windows live tile start menu and list menu and replace games and apps with that. Store should have a downloads function on its home tab.

This should be reflective of how the start menu handles folders in the live tiles. Also games should have live tiles that cycle the home games on home menu stuff. That whole section should be removed.
In my opinion, currently Groups need a huge overhaul. It's time-consuming and tiring manually ordering them, leading to possible misclassification (especially for those who have a large library of games).
Thus, pre-selectable sorts should be added, like:
Genre (Shooter, Action, Adventure, etc...);
Franchise (Halo, Gears of War, Tomb Raider, etc...) with chronologically ordered games;
Year of publication (Games released in 2013, in 2014, etc...);
"Community's most favourites Group sorting".

This coming in a future update anyway

At the bottom of the “Groups Management” area of games and apps add a sub section for “Xbox suggested groups” - curated lists of games automatically pulled from the users libray that fit in the suggested group that the user can then add as a group and customize.
auto suggest games that fit into groups based on group title or similarity to other games within same group.

Make games easier to find.
You can make your own groups, aka folders
