  • Be clear with your suggestion, provide examples and solutions to the problem you are posing. Suggestions without actionable feedback may be closed without comment
  • Upvote existing ideas, as opposed to creating multiple similar requests
  • Be sure to share your suggestion with others to gain more support!
  • Note: Suggestions are not guarantees that we will take action on an idea. We will try our best to communicate why an idea may not work, but may not always be able to share that information.
  • Titles that are unclear or unnecessarily vulgar may be reworded to better reflect the request for ease of discovery

  1. DLsite is a major source for doujinsoft publishing, many games are available there that are not available on Steam. Many circles on DLsite lack significant English language information/websites, so providing a link to DLSite is sometimes the most an English speaker can use for a source

  2. If there is a lot of validation history, it is difficult to move the history. For example, we want to check the validation on the second page to see the previous (or later) content, but it goes back to the first page.

    It is useful to have a click button for "previous/next" to move easily between histories (not only page).

  4. Please close the Toontown Online Category and bring back the Toontown Rewritten Category. Toontown Online should be the one to get removed as that game closed September 19, 2013. Toontown Rewritten is still going strong and had people switching over from the old one.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. Having a link to a game's humble store (https://www.humblebundle.com/store) page would be nice as quite a few streamers are humble partners as well.

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

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. I think that while it's great that contributers can add a label to each image, it would vastly improve the image database if there were dedicated sections/categories to put specific types of images, and therefore allow specific categories of images to be called and viewed. Some databases such as MobyGames (ex. https://www.mobygames.com/game/ps2/silent-hill-2/cover-art) and screenscraper (ex. https://www.screenscraper.fr/gameinfos.php?gameid=5441&action=onglet&zone=gameinfosmedias) have such categories, and I think that having dedicated sections to put images such as rear cover, CD labels, spines, logos and Title Screens would be an extremely important part of preserving game information, especially older physical titles. I know it's a…

  18. 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,

    Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC - New Zealand)
    (https://www.classificationoffice.govt.nz/)

    The Film & Publications Board (FPB - South Africa)

    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!

  19. 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…
