Make sure all games get a fair score! Use the Ludum Dare game browser, click sort by least rated and start playing!

Or you can click this link: http://ludumdare.itch.io/#sort=votes_reverse

The star icon in the game’s hover data is the number of plays it has, and the smiley face is the number of times that person has played a game.

    To be fair, the only two games with no plays both have no link. And both have the same comment by the same guy complaining about the lack of a link.

    If they didn’t bother playing/rating other games, I’m not really thrilled about playing/rating theirs

    While I definitely understand not being very enthusiastic about rating an entry from someone who hasn’t rated anyone else’s, I do think it’s worth considering that many of them did put in the effort to make and release a game to the public for free, same as everyone else. None of them will get as many ratings as those who put forth the effort to rate a bunch of everyone else’s entries, for sure, but they do deserve at least a few people to look at what kind of effort they put into their game.

    Actually, the Rating page is the best method to find games that needs some attention. By default it shows entries that have the lowest ratings:coolness ratios, which means you’ll see people that has contributed a lot by rating entries but haven’t gotten enough feedback yet. It also has an option to show the entries with least ratings, if you’re feeling specially generous.

      I do agree that the rating page is the best way to find games. But games that don’t get many ratings might get a skewed final score that might place them in a position they don’t deserve. The built in sorting mechanism doesn’t account for this as far as I know.
