    It’s no fun having to search through games when a buddy is over trying to figure out which ones we can both play.

    we would need to modify emulationstation to recognize tags like <player> in gamelist.xml and have ES-scraper scraper the # of players from

    Then we would need to set up a sort to sort the roms by number of players eg.: all for all games, 2p for 2 player games and plus for more than two player games.
    all: would list all games normally
    2p: would list all 2 player games then all 2<player games then 1player games.
    plus: would list all 2<player games, then all 1 player followed by all 2 player games.

    Examle: NES 1942

    I hope I made my idea clear.
