    Yeah it's really frustrating that I can't just find games by searching for keywords.

    Suppose I want to see an old Star Trek point-and-click adventure game. The streamer will probably stream under the Retro category instead of the game title. The reason is that if they set the category to the actual game title, there's not much chance someone will search for that category during their stream. Making matters worse, it's also been documented that many categories don't show up on users' Live Categories page (https://www.twitch.tv/directory/following/games) even if there are channels streaming.

    So I would like to search for "star trek" being in the stream title. However, the results are inaccurate, flooded with Star Craft and Star Wars streams.

    That leaves no way to find a streamer when they want to play a Star Trek game that isn't Star Trek Online. The only two options, which are both bad, are checking the Star Trek Online category to see if someone is deliberately miscategorizing their stream to be found there, or to wade through the Retro Category, visually scanning the thumbnail images to see if you can recognize the game as one of the games you'd like to see.

    I just realized that Disco Elysium has never showed on my Live Categories page (https://www.twitch.tv/directory/following/games) despite there being several channels streaming it every time I manually checked. I have the same problem with Quake. I'm sure there are more.

    I would really like this feature of Twitch to work..
