  • 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. The game is already duly registered with the IGDB, but when I contacted them via email, I was informed that this problem would be resolved here and that the game would be able to be an option, a category of choice for streamers.

  2. Simple as. While they should adhere to guidelines, users should be able to opt for which box art they prefer on IGDB. Doing so would not only be preferable for some who prefer some art over another, but would also fleshen out the Database by letting users see which artwork corresponds to which region.

    Heya!

    There’s absolutely a need for multiple covers as a data point, we hear you :) Let’s clarify what this could mean in the near future:

    One thing that we are currently looking at is expanding data for Localization, and covers are an obvious fit for this. However it’s worth pointing that Localized cover and additional cover might not mean the same thing. For example offering the Japanese specific cover doesn’t mean having multiple variant for it (different artworks, logo style, dimensions etc..).

    We will start with Localization, which will help provide API users more options for their own communities. And as a second step from there we would begin looking at how to offer multiple variant of a single regional cover so that users may pick & choose.

    Hope this helps!

  3. We are trying to Add VoxPop Storefront links, What is the submission process for the VP icono to be added to Storefronts?

    This is the VoxPop Games storefront - https://www.voxpopgames.site/store/featured

    The Storefront is legit and has been featured via Game Informer: https://www.gameinformer.com/2022/02/14/weaponeer-a-game-developed-by-a-17-year-old-that-you-can-play-with-one-hand-is-out-today

  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 allow us to comment on changes after they have been discarded. There is no way to know whether there is a need to argue your case in the first place since the admins' willingness to accept new games wildly varies. It takes a lot of time to add them and sometimes they get discarded despite having a valid reason to exist. For instance, I recently added all three 16-bit remakes of Mega Man 1-3 included in Mega Man: The Wily Wars, all fo which have been rejected with the reasoning "they are already catalogued in the bundle". However, there…

  7. 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.

  9. Hey guys, Dead Space category shows wrong game and its bugged! There are 3 games of Dead Space. Mobile version, Dead Space from 2008 and now remake. Even when you switch on another one, its shows you play the mobile version. It even gives you tags like, mobile game etc... Pls fix it, or you should hire someone, who would check these things every week. -_- FYI I want to stream Dead Space Remake when I choose the right category it keeps giving me Dead Space for mobile it's confusing people

  11. 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.

  12. Some games share additional content such as DLC, Expansions, Packs/Addons, Updates, Seasons, and Mods with ports of their game or sequels. While this would be a limited specific use case it will allow content pages to be shared between titles and limiting duplicates.

    A great example is Minecraft. The latest update for Minecraft, the 1.19 Wild Update appears twice on IGDB. Once for the original Minecraft: Java Edition and another for the port Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. These two pages contain the same content and there isn't much of a reason for it to be separate.

  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. A bit of a smaller suggestion, but I think it's a pretty vital one. The storyline description functions as a hook of sorts that attracts players to the game, just as much as the Description and Screenshot sections. I find it counterintuitive that the storyline is buried all the way to the bottom of the page... it should be more visible, in my opinion. i.e. both physical game boxes and game pages on online storefronts like PSN or Steam have game descriptions, storyline descriptions , and images all located close together because they're all important aspects to pull gamers in.

  15. It's sometimes useful to note things down for private use (like why you added a game to the wishlist), that wouldn't fit into the review section.

    This could be either in list view or game view.

  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…

  17. Right now character data is linked to their respective voice actors, which is linked to the game credits, the thing is game credits is a feature quite forgotten at this point, and also not all characters have voice actors, would be possible to make us link and create character data for each game without needing to add the game's whole credits?

    Something like a new "Characters" section in a game page.
    And being able to create and link characters entries in games.

    Something like this:

  18. I think IGDB should borrow the "All DLC page" from Steam.

    So, on a page that has lots of DLC, say

    Snowrunner - https://www.igdb.com/games/snowrunner (12 DLC)
    or
    Euro Truck Sim 2 - https://www.igdb.com/games/euro-truck-simulator-2 (11 DLC)

    A page should be added say https://www.igdb.com/games/euro-truck-simulator-2/dlc

    Which has a layout simial to https://store.steampowered.com/dlc/1465360/SnowRunner/#browse

    So a vertical list of all the DLC's with the box art and the summary (maybe the website links along side)

    Then you can more easily see all the DLC without having to use the arrows to navigate the list.

    This can also help karma hunters to easily revise/update data on…

  20. An option to add owned games and when you add a bundle their games are added to the list of owned games. Games should have a subcategory in the list preview for DLC's and extras, not a game entity. This would make a list readable for the user.
