pacman -Ss game | grep -i openttd | wc -l

Anyway, totally agree categories are bad. Tags on the other hand are
cool. I'd really enjoy searching by tags. Description isn't a good place
for listing all the features or use cases. Consider this:

pacman -Ssx libvirt  => show both libvirt, qemu, virt-manager, virtkick
and opennebula

pacman -Ssx storage  => show bacula, dropbox, owncloud (even the
webapp), glusterfs, ceph, zfs etc.

Kind regards,
Damian Nowak
