  3. Add a "filter" for FAQ, Cheats, Reviews, etc on the game lists

I'm not sure if filter is the best word, but what I mean is a way to show only the chosen option on the game list section. look at this for example (just as an example as not a huge list):
https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/n64/category/48-role-playing

having a filter for FAQ only would then "hide" Fushigi no Dungeon and Zoor, as they don't have faqs. likewise, selecting cheats would "hide" those two and also Hercules.

Having "saves" only would show Aidyn Chronicles, Gauntlet Legends, Hercules, Hybrid Heaven, Mario Story and Paper Mario.

Then consider how there are 5673 shooter games on PC currently that are listed, it would be immensely helpful if you could only show games with reviews. It may mean only 673 games are shown now, but you wont have to keep scrolling and skipping over lines if you wish to read reviews.

Ideally, clicking the column header of FAQs, Cheats, Reviews, etc would allow this.

Since we can filter by the first letter of the game name, genre, distribution method, region, etc (which are all quite helpful), it would be quite helpful to let us also see only games with FAQs, Cheats, Reviews, etc (I think it would be nice to let us see the opposite too, at least for contribution purposes).

Is this possible?

This search filter page is also useful.

oh ;(

it would be great if the heading of the link I mentioned did that too for those sections (since you can filter region, distribution and genre there just as easily), but that's fine if that wont get implemented.

im just assuming (as I have no idea) if the search can do a "if review selected>show only reviews" type of code, then having the main game list page do it would be just as easy as a hyperlink for reviews in the title bar?

thanks regardless :)
