Gamenet is a tool for videogame discovery in the form of a hypertext network in which related games are linked. Users start at a game of their choice and can explore the network by following links to related games or by jumping across the network through a link to a highly unrelated game. In addition to links to its most related and unrelated games, each game's entry gives a text summary of it, extracted from Wikipedia, as well as links to YouTube gameplay videos and images from Google. The tool is able to reason about relatedness among nearly 12,000 games automatically through a technique from computational linguistics called latent semantic analysis.
