How do you organize games on your device?

I haven't found a good way of organizing my games on my iPhone. Are there any good ways that anyone knows of?

I do it by genre (platformers, adventures, arcade, action, JRPG, WRPG, etc.). That way it's easy to find the kind of game I'm in the mood to play.

I do keep brand new games outside of folders for a little while, though.

I divided them in two pages:

One is full of games that have an ending and are level based
The other is full of my favorite genre: endless runners

Yeah, I keep my new games outside of my folders for a while too.

Another problem I have is that I have trouble categorizing games. Any suggestions?

I have my current go to game on my first page homescreen. Then quick play games in a folder on the first page, and longer in depth games in a folder on my second homescreen page.

Alphabetical order. It helps me find specific apps

I used to have an intricate system to arrange my game apps. Now I just keep the few I actively play and delete the rest, except for those with savegames I want to keep.

Just one folder, and all in alphabetical order, with games in numerical going at the beginning.
