Allow Chronological Game Sorting for Series

Add ability to sort my games library by chronological order in addition to alphabetical or other filters. (Ex. Tomb Raider games are not in chronological order under alphabetical sorting since they are not numbered and aside from the first reboot title, each games’ title begins with something other than Tomb Raider.)

        You can now make your own content blocks and I've been making genre blocks and put them right on my dashboard

        I love the idea of being able to group/sort games by series and the order they're released in that series!

        Or even let us customize the sort order or rage games as favorites to always show at the top of the list.

        I think Ryan has the idea. Being able to group a series into a block would be helpful. This would probably have to be a different type of layout entirely, where you would click on a series and then have it break out further into all the titles in the franchise that are installed. It would take a fair amount of metadata collection on Xbox's part, but not impossible. Perhaps even tie that into a better store experience - "What are all the games in this series? Let me buy the next game in this series."

        Plex has something called "Collections". When you have multiple movies from a series (Star Wars, LEGO, etc) they create a chronological group for those movies. This might also work for games?

        I think this would be better phrased as "sort games by series." The series would be sorted by alphabetical order (e.g. Gears of War, Halo, Tomb Raider) and the entries in the series would be sorted by release date (e.g. Halo 3, Halo: Reach, Halo 4, Halo: MCC, Halo 5).
