Searching woes

Post by MonkeyFinger »

Do we have any way to search for a game title like "The Last of Us"? Seems like there should be a way to search for that exact phrase, ignoring the "or any of the words in it" bit it does now. This to avoid what I'm getting this morning:

"The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: last the of us.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards."

:(

Ha! Don't ever think of using Google inside forums like that. Label this post as "Has a Workaround". :wink:
