Here’s the Deal
Slant is powered by a community that helps you make informed decisions. Tell us what you’re passionate about to get your personalized feed and help others.
Reddit has subreddits that function as dedicated forums to post all sorts of links, questions, images, news,... concerning the specific topic of the subreddit. A subreddit that's an alternative to gaming related questions on Slant would be /r/gamingsuggestions, where users can ask other users for game recommendations, based on the preferences they describe. See More
Reddit users are entirely free to up-or downvote posts on subreddits. It may happen that you are on a very popular subreddit and get confronted with some gratuitous downvoters very early on. If that happens, the post containing the question may disappear quickly from the first pages of the subreddit and never receive a proper response. See More
People who ask questions on Reddit can interact with people who respond through reply threads. That way the users can discuss the topic as much as they want to. Other users can up- or downvote users' suggestions, so that the best responses or suggestions are the first you will read. See More
Responses on reddit can sometimes be unnecessarily long or on the other hand just contain one word with no explanation. Some suggestions can be useless to the OP, but still receive upvotes. The reason for that is that users would often upvote those responses that they like most for themselves or think are funny. See More
While Gamecupid does a good job of informing the visitor of a game's features, it does not make any judgment of whether or not the features in question are done well or not. For instance if a game has issues with bugs, lag, long server downtimes, poor optimization or simply badly executed gameplay, the feature rainbow will not inform you of that. There is only an overall percentage that shows how many people recommend it, similar to the system used by Steam. See More
Gamecupid developed a layered pie-shaped system to describe the features of a game called the "feature rainbow". It is basically an interactive mindmap in a segmented circular shape. This feature does a great job to quickly find what you need to know about the features of the game. See More
Every video game that's described on this website has a dedicated page with descriptions. Here one can find a description of the features, achievements on various platforms, a discussion tab where players can share their experiences and a list of games that are similar. See More
While searching for comparisons, you will almost always get different sites in the search results. While variety is good, it makes comparing products very difficult as each website has their own tests and results don't always line up. Also, when making a direct side-by-side comparison it is harder as the information might be in different spots making it more time consuming than just using a single site (where information is typically laid out in a similar fashion). See More
Content is rated, and the best content is displayed first making it quick to find whatever you're looking for. As a side-advantage, for products you aren't familiar with you can usually click on the first few links and get good results instead of having to dig through multiple pages of results. See More
On the lists, there are detailed tables that show the specifications of all of the products. If a product has a certain feature, there is a checkmark in that box. If the spec is numerical, they list the specific number there (for example, in the best PDF printers & creators list, each product was tested twice for both the conversion speed and PDF file size, and both numerical results are listed. See More
Every list has a ranking of the products, and a bar graph at the top of the list quickly shows which products are good and which are not based on their rating. You can also sort the graph by different factors - for example, when looking at the best front load washers you can sort by things like washing capacity, energy cost & efficiency, spin speed, and more with just the click of a button.
