csdb browsing feature: similar productions

Just an idea: wouldn't it be awesome if we had some kind of "you might also like"-feature when looking at an entry on csdb? Don't know how to implement it, but browsing csdb through similar prods would be hours of fun. Don't you think?

"Visually close"... look, all these images use close to the same 16 colors ;-D

I maintain and repeat that "similarity" is a very subjective concept in the domain of creative productions.

Whatever clustering a machine or a random person will come up with, all the rest will more likely than not agree to disagree.

In movies, books, films etc. we have however loosely defined genres and styles, that can give you a vague idea of what might be "similar"... that probably translates best to music releases, maybe even to pixel graphics, but I have no idea how to group demos into genres.

but I have no idea how to group demos into genres.
Until the turn of the millennium, demos had been lumped into at least two mutually exclusive categories: oldschool and newschool.

Oldschool was heavy on effects in 2-D, 50 FPS, native/high resolution, with an emphasis on VIC trickery, catchy tunes with a lot of treble, and the space bar.
Newschool was heavy on effects in 2.5 to 3-D, < 50 FPS, chunky/low resolution, with an emphasis on math-based complex visuals as seen on more powerful platforms of the day, thumping tunes with a lot of bass, and an IRQ loader.

That line has become somewhat blurrier since then. =)

That kinda feels like saying the genres for movies are silent film and sound film. ;-)

Maybe, but then you can't really compare movies to demos. Also i'd make silent and sound film different platforms, not genres.

The genre of a movie is primarily determined by which story it tells, and how.
Technical merits don't weigh in so much.

For demos, it's pretty much the opposite. And there aren't so many story-driven demos, and then that is not mutually exclusive to being any kind of school.

Quote: maybe introduce a tagging option when adding new releases, so the 'you might also like' feature could be based on tags.
only problem is that previous releases would have to be tagged retroactively.


i'd really like to see those tags.

demo, best, fastest, world first, amazing, realtime, highres, digi, 3d, gpu emulation, pixel guru, amiga like, god level

- isn't it an intro with a static logo and a 1x1 scroller?
- yep.

:)

graphics tagging works decently on http://artcity.bitfellas.org

you could apply the same to code and music.
but yes, one would have to post more descriptive/specific tags than that :)

I achieve the same results by clicking on sceners names, or groups, or by searching using already available features :)
