I think it would be nice if the games listing in a forum profile would be sorted by release date instead of alphabetically.

In the same vein, can the "creator:" page (when clicking on a game's author on the site) default to /date/desc/ rathen than /name/asc/?

I'm not sure about this. I think it would be more confusing.

Actually I agree with Jack, when I check someone's games I always find myself thinking that it would be nice to see at a glance which ones are older and which ones are more recent. Sorting them alphabetically doesn't really serve a purpose, whereas sorting them by date does.

Maybe it would be better to simply start a poll and see what people think/want? Alphabetical/Date/Don't care?

I think the issue is, some of the date information is missing for some games, so these would probably get sorted as if they were released in 1970.
