Remove games from the apps list

Remove the games from the apps list. In Wp 8 they are in Games Hub but in WP8.1 is in the apps list and make a really confusion. Please games only in Games Hub.

    Thank you for this suggestion. However, based on feedback from other customers to improve discoverability, we felt that the best way was to allow users to find downloaded games in the Games Hub and All Apps List

        It annoys me every day that all the apps and games are mixed in together (yes it is petty but it really does bug me every single day)

        I would love to see the option to either swipe 2 times from the right to get to games (1swipe for apps) or to be able to only show them in the games hub. This was one of the biggest suggestions here in 8.1 until we were told they are staying in the app list. So why not give an OPTION to keep both camps happy.

        It's far too annoying, forcing me to uninstall most of my games, just so that I can remember the app I have installed that were buried in the mess.

        Mobile Guru is an Apple employee whose mission is to destroy the beautiful experience that Windows Phone is and turn it into another lagdroid...
        Just a question "Guru": How much money Apple pays you?
        Or is it Scroogle the one who's paying you for the sabotage?
        Just be honest and maybe, just maybe we'll have some respect for you, just don't be a coward and stop hiding behind your "Admin" status...

        How about giving an option and the ones who actually post and vote here care more than the average consumer.Who wants their app list blown up by games "Oh that's a great idea, we should put them in apps and game and not give them an option"

        Also, what's the point in this site if you just override our feedback with decisions based on "other customers" feedback?

        Do you not see the irony here?

      • Niavlys77Niavlys77 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just because of feedback from "other" customers...pathetic how you guys make decisions. How about asking your real base users instead of these so-called "other customers".

        If your team were smart, you would have kept the old way as an option, if you really wanted to make this change permanent.

      • Niavlys77Niavlys77 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Completed? What kind of bull**** is this? Declined is NOT the same as Completed.

        We want the option - it's a cluttered, unorganized mess, and you guys completely f****d up the Games Hub just alongside this. Seriously, you guys really screwed up with this.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        im sorry but you guys didn't get the idea here, we want an OPTION to hide games from the APPLICATIONS(hear that? AP-PLI-CA-TIONS, NOT GAMES) list, simply as that, why do you need to side with a group of users? is there anyone qualified as an adult working here? add the option to hide/show games on the app list and done, both parties happy

        Please give us the option to hide games from the app list.

        My phone is fantastic but having games in the app list irritates me every day.

        I can no longer select a letter and go straight to an app as most letters have more than one screen full of apps and games.

      • PreethamPreetham commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is incorrectly marked as completed .. You should mention it as Declined

      • Serhiy PazelskyySerhiy Pazelskyy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is silly. I cant even delete a game in game menu now. Have to go to apps and look for it! Please, return to the way it was in 8

      • FaustoFausto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Mobile Guru with respect to your "opinion"... but you work for Apple. the answer to this issue really showed me that you are not a MS employed but a foreign saboteur...
        First your "team" broke the Music+Video hub, and then the Games hub...
        Is Apple paying you just enough to ruin the WP user experience?
        Who or what are those "other customers" you talk about?
        Your Apple masters?

        hubs are what make WP different from the others!
        hubs keep things organized and clear
        I also never eard anyone complained about having games in the hub!

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is one of the highest-voted requests on here; how is it that our opinion is less valid than the opinions of those who wanted games in the apps list? I've never once heard someone say they had trouble finding their games. Heck, there's a big tile on the home screen that says "GAMES"! If someone can figure out how to download games, they can surely figure out how to play them. At least give us an option!

      • shaunshaun commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is there any chance to give us an option then to hide the games? When using my phone I am going to open an app OR a game. Therefore they should logically be in different lists. I like to download apps and games as i come across them in case I need them but now my app list is a massive mess. When I go searching for something I don't know the name of I can't find it. Please give us who don't want games in the app list the option to hide them then you can keep both sets of people happy. Otherwise keep up the good work but this is a misstep

        I have just realised now 8.1 is rolling out worldwide this feature suggestion has been marked as completed hiding it from peoples view so people can't vote on it any more. Very sneaky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        why not give us choices on settings to show/hide games on app list ? win-win solution

      • MaxMax commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        But you can add option to hide games from app list (default is off). If user want hide them => he know where to search games.
