Question Random game picker

Sorry, I haven't got one, that's my point. Does anyone have a system for choosing a game to play when you have so many and can't make your mind up? What would be fun is if there was a 'play random game' button in FS-UAE. It would be best if it downloaded games you don't already have on your computer, but then that might be poking the copyright hornet's nest.

Thanks. Until then I've come up with a manual solution...

I threw together a quick database of all the Amiga games and made it available here (I had a spare five minutes). It's called 'Hall of Light', just because.

As there are 6618 entries in it, go to this random number generator and enter the number range as 1-6618, and press generate.

Now take that number and use it to replace the xxx's in the following address: http://hol.abime.net/xxx

Ta da, random game selection! Let me know if anyone finds any hidden gems.

Amiga Lore has a random A-Z game generator.

Also, if you visit the main game page it picks a random game ("Have You Played?").

Ah, so it's already been done, cool.
