  1. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is considered more than just a "remake" by almost all of the MK and Fighting game community. It deserves its own category and should be re-added.

    People who want to watch UMK3, do not want to watch MK3 and vice versa. There was no reason to remove it in the first place.

  2. The category is removed. If you're going to remove versions of Street FIghter 4, Remove Street Fghter IV, Super Street Fighter IV, and KEEP Ultra Street Fighter IV. as it is the active, and most current version of the game, that also allows you to play previous versions of characters within it. Thanks!

  3. "Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4" is not the same as "Persona 4: Golden", even if the games are largely similar. Persona 4: Golden adds new content, characters, etc., and one of the characters is re-dubbed. In addition, it makes zero sense to have the limited edition of a game be its own separate category, when the regular edition isn't.

  4. Someone removed the "Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike" from the categories when creating a new stream. It still comes up as a result in the main search bar, so I can find old or current live broadcasts using it.

    It looks like it was replaced with "Street Fighter III: Double Impact", which is not even a game that exists.

  7. Please merge the Pokemon games back together. There should be no reason why the games should be even MORE fragmented than they already are. (Ex: Sword, Shield, and Sword/Shield Dual Pack are all separate categories. Why?) This completely destroys discoverability for the community. Things like this just make users lose faith in Twitch when they preach working on discoverability & search functionality for it's users.

    Or even better, create one franchise category for Pokemon (and other franchises) like others have suggested here.

    Sorry for all the confusion with this. We’ve recombined and restored Pokémon titles by generation. There may continue to be a handful of strange bundles in the system (example: Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Double Pack), however we will be removing those as well. Thanks for your patience!

  8. Merge all Age of Empires 3 games and call the category "Age of Empires III"

    Thank you for your feedback!

    We actually addressed this last year by merging the various Age of Empires III categories, but forgot to close this out.

  9. With a recent update, Twitch merged all remakes of games in the directory with its original game for whatever reason. Now remakes of popular franchises such as Legend of Zelda, Resident Evil, etc. are all fighting over visibility in the same directory. This is also a problem for remakes of games that have completely different names from its original game, such as Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land, the remake of Kirby's Adventure for NES released on GBA, who's directory is now completely gone because ????

    I don't understand what the point of this change is. There was absolutely nothing wrong…

    Update: we are now able to support a handful of new game types from IGDB, including remakes, remasters, expanded games, and forks – all new game types that have been introduced on IGDB (see the updated documentation at https://github.com/twitchtv/igdb-contribution-guidelines/wiki/Type)

    This means that we can now restore nearly all of the titles that have been reported missing in this suggestion, and we are working to do so!

    Thank you for your feedback and patience! We will close this suggestion for now, but please feel free to open new suggestions if there are additional games that you find are missing!

  10. The rise of the VR industry and the relatively new phenomenon of Virtual Streamers and Virtual Youtubers has made impact on sites like Twitch as well. There is a very large (800+ and growing) community of streamers on twitch who use a virtual avatar combined with face tracking software to use instead of webcams. VR is already a tag, but it would be nice to distinguish this category for those who use avatars and may play the role of a character. (like HoloLive, for example) It's not much different than having Anime as a tag, for example.

    Thank you very…

    HeyGuys!

    Super excited to share that we now have a “Vtuber” tag on Twitch!

    In the past I had posted on how tags were aimed at the stream and not the streamer, but we have changed our thinking on this as of today and added more than 350 new tags, including this one.

    Changes like this are possible because of feedback and threads like this so I just wanted to say thank you again for sharing feedback with us.

    For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/

  11. Since the release of Warcraft3 - Reforged earlier this year, Reign of Chaos is no longer a standalone game. It's all merge in Warcraft3 Reforged.

    Would be great to have it changed

  12. "Flow Arts": As the current world condition has taken us from previous live festivals and performance, many Flow Artists and Dancers are turning to virtual and broadcasted live performances of their talents. Traditionally, we as dancers, hula-hoop performers, jugglers, poi spinners and other similar disciplines, have had to gravitate towards the "Music & Performance Art" category. (With no specific tag identifying us as with Flow Artists, nor dancers). Now that Twitch has adjusted back to "Music" as the original category, we have migrated to "just chatting"; it doesn't really identify our community at all, among others that actually do feature…

    Hey all!

    Super excited to share we now have a flow arts tag on Twitch!

    Thank you so much for the feedback on this and please let us know if you have any other tags you would like to see on Twitch.

  13. I run my own trivia games and feel like Just Chatting is the only place for it, even though that's really NOT a good place for it.

  14. Support for games on Linux can be inconsistent, and it's really helpful to be able to see how well a game runs on the OS when making purchasing decisions. A way to easily find other people streaming on Linux would be a boon.

    Hey all!

    The Linux tag is now live on Twitch!

    Thank you so much for this feedback and please let us know if there are other tags you would like to see live on the site!

  15. The Touhou Category got removed or renamed, removing it would be very detrimental to the community on twitch.

    Hey guys!

    Just following up to let you know that this has been resolved!

    We are back to one category for Age of Empires II!

    Thank you for the continued feedback on this.

  18. Please re-instate Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate as separate game categories.

    These are three distinct games on completely different platforms with different mechanics, stories, and levels/bosses you fight.

    There's no category that streamers of these games can fit into with them gone ! Please give us back our Monster Hunter games!

  19. It would be nice to have a filter option where you can search for streams in a given category based on viewership. Something like: “min viewers: (x) to max viewers: (y)”

  20. Disabled gamers often face more or different hardships than abled streamers do. There are so many amazing users on Twitch who are disabled, and they deserve a "disabled" tag. Disabled streamers need a way to find each other and weave our communities together, and disabled viewers need a way to find streamers they want to watch and connect with.
