Games/Apps in general or within Sugar itself? We have restrictions in
terms of the types of games we will host, e.g., no games that promote
violence, but we don't restrict access in any way to the games that we
do host.

That said, we have several mechanisms for steering a child or teacher
to content of interest, including recommend activities, collections,
reviews, categories, etc. It would be interesting to learn more about
how these are used and suggestions for improvements.

There are also, external to Sugar, guides, social networks, etc. that
play an important role.

We are encouraging a documentation format for activities that give
some guidance on how to use the activities for learning. See for
example, http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Portfolio
