GameCenter needs more statistics

GameCenter needs more statistics

I would like to see more in-depth statistic tracking for Gamecenter. A couple that I am thinking of:

  • Minutes/Hours Played (overall & per game)
  • Favorite Game (Most Time Played)
  • Game with Best Online Ranking
  • Average Game Ranking (it would average your overall ranking)
  • Some Kind of level based ranking system (based on points, ranking, etc.) So, for example, level 30 may be "Game God" or something like that.
  • Nemesis (Gamecenter friend that outranks you in the most games and vice versa)
  • Screenshots (I know, not a statistic but it would be sweet!!)
  • Points per hour & achievements per hour


What other statistics would you all like to see?

I mainly want Apple to allow us to see out Gamecenter info through the web browser. It always takes a "while" to open up and load on my 4th gen ipod touch.

What about messaging? Game Center needs a LOT of work, and it's so primitive that I can't help but think they are purposely making it a bare-bones service to leave the door open to "revolutionary" updates throughout iOS generations. "iOS 7, now with AVATAR CHARACTERS!!!" *yawn*

Well, it wouldn't be Apple if they didn't do it that way.

This will be available on Macs in Mountain Lion this summer. Game Center is coming to the Mac, so I presume it will combine the Mac and iOS GC accounts, so being able to see all the iOS features on the Mac.

Anyone know how to delete a gamecenter account. I made a new one and now every other time I log on it logs onto that one it gets really annoying.

Messaging GC friends would be a major plus imo.

This! Also Gamecenter lobbies would be great and maybe the ability to delete games in Gamecenter

OK not a statistic but I'd love push notifications when a friend overtakes me at a game.

I make games.
