Default Kill the TRA

I like to search for games by only typing in three letters. This enables me to see interesting series of letters within words. For instance, when I type pri for prince of persia, free enterPRIse shows up. I don't know why but that really turns my crank. I was curious to see what combination produced the most results. SIM I thought would be the clear cut winner. However, it only has 15 results. The winner, with 28 results is TRA! Now, a question. How many sims do you like? How many tras do you like? Exactly... tra isn't even a thing.
Now, I have a solution. Arbitrarily assign the word SIM to all the games in the database. For example: UFO - EnSIMemy Unknown. This will ensure that Sims take their rightful place as masters of the search engine.

I have a better proposition:
Whatever you type in the searchfield, the response should be all the games listed on AB.

You can search games by genre and then refine the results using tags.
This is sufficient.

Arbitrarily adding words to game names would not only screw up any full name searches something fierce but also completely bork up the connection between the reviews and archives.

Therefore, I'm going to give this "suggestion" a boot into 3xBlah.
