  1. I would really love to see if you could find a way to let us search games by igdb id.
    That would help to find the correct game if the name is taken my multiple games.

    If this is the wrong place to request this, please feel free to delete it again.

  2. Can we have a little mini game where we get to see thumbnails of the channels we follow and see if we can correctly identify them all?

  3. Have a section where two random games are shown (can be filtered by systems owned) where users choose which of the two games they prefer (or specify if they haven't played one/both). Gradually a ranking of games is created as games compete against each other, automatically generating that player's "Top ***" or favorite games. This is very similar to how Flickchart.com works.

  4. This one is pretty self explanatory - having a dedicated image category to reserve for game manuals. While it would be incredible to have a method of flipping through the images like a book, just attaching a PDF would still certainly be better than nothing. It's a definitely overlooked but essential piece of preserving game information, and it would be great to have it here.

  5. Please add howlongtobeat.com website just like you did with Steam and others. This would be very useful.

  6. Add fields for external video game database ids. This would be helpful for developers to pull additional data from other databases.

    Take for example, platforms. Each platform has an ID on other databases (screenscraper, mobygames, thegamesdb, launchbox). Same for games.

    The field should allow a list entry as one game on IGDB might be multiple ids on a different database if they don't combine games from different platforms into a single entry like IGDB does.

  8. Currently under "Release Dates", users need to hover over the platform name to see other release dates in other regions. It would be an improvement to list all the dates and regions without the need to hover, so you can see the info at a glance. Additionally it would be nice if listed in historical order.

  9. Right now is only possible to set a game as a remake of a single game, due to this games like the 'Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy'are set as a bundle of the PS1 trilogy instead of a remake of the trilogy.

    The same problem happens with games like 'Kyuuyaku Megami Tensei I-II' which is a remake of Megami Tensei 1 & 2, but due to this is only set as a remake of the first Megami Tensei.

  10. It would be cool if the date the game was published was also in the game info card, next to the little text blurb summary.

  11. Currently only seven classification systems are supported, even though this may cover a "majority" of Classification Systems around the world, at least six classification systems are missing out and some are important to several cultures strict guidelines and customs,

    Hi and thank you for your suggestion. These would be interesting to add in the future, but before we do that we want to make sure that we have a good coverage of the ratings that we recently added. After that, we can look into adding more. Thank you!

  12. Currently when you're adding a Classification rating to games you cannot find a link to search for the title on the available classification system whether that be GRAC, ACB, ESRB, PEGI, CERO, USK or CLASSIND, I think it would be beneficial to have a link next to the titles, for example; "USK (German Standard) - Search For Title Here", the text "Search For Title Here" would be a link to the following URL: "https://usk.de/en/?s&jump=usktitle&post_type=usktitle" or another example; "ClassInd (Brazilian Standard) - Search For Article Here", where the text "Search For Article Here" would be a link to the…

  13. I don't thing it's a good thing that you greyed out the options to add an upcoming game as "Played" or "Playing". Many of these games have demos or betas available to try them and we won't be able to track them.

  15. I think the "Want" and "Playing" options are good as they can get, but when it comes to "Played", I think it should be more than that.
    * There are games that I've beaten and/or completed
    * There are games that I started to play, but then I stopped playing and won't get back
    * There are games that I started to play, and took a break from, but I'm planning to get back to them eventually

    I don't know the best way to present these buttons on the game pages. For example, when you click the "Played" button, then…

  17. While this may need a bit of oversight, there are some extremely good examples of documentaries or historical breakdowns of game releases and/or even controversies. These are topics that are not generally covered in the official trailers or dev logs, or even gameplay videos. These videos can lay out a history of why some titles are cancelled, or overhauled, or have a troubled history outside of the game itself.

    Examples:

  18. It would be very nice to have the images of the platform work in the API. I don't mean the logos, I mean the wide image that displays the console in its entirety. Maybe add it as Platform Images or something like that.

  20. I often omit the endings of titles from the Storyline section to prevent posting spoilers, but I realize I'm not everyone. Generally I feel if people are just looking for more info on the game, why play it if you already know how it's going to turn out?

    I'd love to see a section you could add or highlight sections of a plot in Storyline that might be best hiddened for new users, rather than a full block of the field.
