Re: searching descriptions: when searching via description, you're
likely to find descriptions that have whatever keyword you typed, but
not in the scenario you had in mind.
You searched for "office" and that matches the description
"Game about shooting people at the office"
If instead you had a tag system, searching --tag office would,
presumably, match office applications only. Anyway, this may not be a
tremendously great example, but I think there is somewhat of a point
