Another idea came to me while I was running in place, listening to Rush. I could take the average of two percentages. For two members, A and B, these would be Shared Favorites / Total number of A's favorites and Shared Favorites over / Total number of B's favorites.

There are three main things to calculate.

  1. Similarity between two members
  2. A ranking of games derived from the favorites of members who like the same game
  3. A ranking of games derived from the favorites of members with a non-zero similarity to another member.
