What Happend To Games.com - Game Launch Page Change Overview

You may have noticed some changes to our site in the last week. We did a slight color change and rebuilt our games pages. The goal of these changes was as follows:
1. Make the site better looking.
2. Make getting help for a game easier.
3. Clean up the site overall.

Here is a quick visual rundown:
Games.com- Play Now Buttons
We've made the buttons on our launch pages bigger and with more descriptive icons.
You can see that some of our games now have 'single player' and 'multi-player' options.
Single player games you will play by yourself or against computer opponents.

Games.com- We Check Your Computer Settings.
Our game pages now check your computer to make sure you meet top level system requirements like JavaScript, Java, your browser type or whether you need Flash. If any of those items are not compatible the check mark will be a red x rather than a green check.
If you don't meet the requirements there are links to help you install the necessary software.We now have help buttons featured prominently on all the game pages. These buttons are color coded. Green if your computer meets the system requirements and red if it does not. Clicking help will take you to a new dedicated help page that is not buried somewhere

The new help section will be specific to the game you are reviewing and all system requirements will be laid out in front of you.
You will now have the information you need to go through the common issues section and diagnose your own issues in real time.
Each of the common issues expands so that you can read specific help instructions or links to get you the information you need to get your computer working the way it needs to so you can play the games.
As issues come up the common issues will be updated so that we can help people with issues as they happen and when we know about them.

If your issue is not resolved under the common issues we've also consolidated all the the additional resources you might need. Available under additional help are links to:

1. The AOL help section with detailed help files.

2. The Games Community Forums where you can find the help of others who may be experiencing the same issues.

3. Links to the Games.com News. Games.com News is where you will find me It's also the source for day to day news about games.com

Lastly, we offer the opportunity to contact us via email. While we cannot always get to every email; we do monitor the emails and will respond to specific issues when we can.

Please let us know your thoughts on the changes! This is your site and your feedback is important to us. Please let us know what you think! What would you like to see on our site? How can we make it EVEN BETTER!
