I think it would be nice to have "released/unreleased" tags

    Once in a while I check the tactical games forum, looking for something to play, and there's millions of threads about unreleased/kickstarter/vapourware/early access games, mixed with discussion about actual, released games.

    You know, the type you can play.

    So maybe having tags warning "Shit to fawn over for 2 years, until the game is released and it sucks (if it's released at all)l" and "totally released and actual game" would be nice for me and others searching for shit they can actually play.

    If it were up to me, I would make a subforum for "in-progress" stuff, and put all the silly hype threads there. But maybe that's a bit much.

    EDIT: It seems there's already "kickstarter" and "vapourware" tags, but they're not used. Maybe the mods should enforce the use of it? I dunno.

    We could create thread prefixes like these, but they'd be applicable to every game, which means if applied consistently they'd replace all the other prefixes. You'd only see Released and Unreleased, nothing else. If you don't want that, it needs to be a separate, second prefix.
