length group weight
and so on, will play with these
22 hour game - group weight 9
1/22*9 = .4
difficulty shouldn't be simple weight, extremely easy aren't desirable either
5/10 = ideal difficulty
weight lower further away from 5
if game's appeal lies in it's difficulty, then ...??? add other factor points at end

X = overall score (let's get this 1-10)
h = hours
d = difficulty
p = personality
x - higher more desirous
group hours? 1-10; 11-25; 25-40 so on?
longer the game the less i want to play; weight applied must be fractional
more difficult the less i want to play
certain exceptions like where the appeal of the game is the difficulty
like dark souls
fractional weight again for difficulty
will apply modifier for the difficulty is the appeal
personal bias will have highest weight
x = (h*hw)*(d*dw)*(p*pw) + "other factors"

EDIT, I see you did. Can't you put a filter on Google Docs? No need to see all the games that are sequel ineligible.

It sounds like you're going to spend more time figuring out what to play than you will spend actually playing.
Not that I think you have any intention of doing this.

For your "Personal" aspect...I'd put you on a 1 to 5 scale. You could rate everything 1 to 5...then come up with a multiplier to weight out each with how special they are to you... I'd do it all in Excel.

scientifically clearing my backlog ("a must read thread if there ever was one" - the new york times thread review)
so i have a very large backlog of ps3 games that i'm ever trying to work through. instead of choosing for myself haphazardly, and instead of asking unhelpful jackanapes on the internet, i'm developing a formula that will tell me which game to play.
i'm working on isolating several factors that contribute to my decision to play a game, weighing them, then plugging them into an equation of my own devise that will determine what game comes next.
so far, the factors i've determined that measure my interest are -- game length (the longer the game, the less inclined i am to play); game difficulty (generally speaking, the more difficult the game the less i want to play, though this is occasionally reversed for some games where the appeal is the difficulty); general public interest (as gauged by composite review score and user review scores); and my own interest (hard to pin down, this is the ultimate variable and will be worth the most weight). there are some other minor factors i need to account for, such as nostalgia factor (which may already be accounted for in my own interest rating), online factor (do i feel like playing an online intensive game or not?); trophy (or achievement) difficulty (do i feel like making an effort to unlock them all for this particular game?). many of the smaller factors have some overlap with my own personal interest measurement, so i'll either have to exclude those factors when i gauge my overall interest, or exclude them from the formula all together.
anyway, this is a work in progress, and if anyone has any feedback or suggestions, let me know.
