How it works:
  • Choose a relevant category for your idea and check to see if any other users have already submitted this suggestion before creating your own
  • 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. It would be great to have a quick way to view the games you have played and not yet rated. Sometimes I might forget to rate the game and I do not want to spend a long time comparing the list of played games to rated games to see which ones got missed and the same is true the other way around. Even if we could download the list of review games via CVC (like we can with played games) then I could easy use a duplicates search function on excel to do this. It is really annoying when the…

  2. Often (if at all), users will enter a source or reference link in the Comments of an edit when this isn't something that can't be added to the existing Websites (news article, second Community Wiki, dev Twitter post, etc). This often gets lost or forgotten later when a new edit is added, becoming a back and forth.

    If there could be a way to add something like the [#] links on datapoints to show the sources of an edit without having to look through years of changelogs. That would help greatly, both in review and transparency.

  4. In modern gaming Publisher, Developer, and everything in between no longer represent the sensibilities and ideas on display in a final product. The real influence on the art, is the artist.

    I want for there to be some way to keep track of specific, decision making, people on development teams that make the games we all know and love. I want to follow the writing lead/team of Tyranny, I want to follow the design team/lead of Guild Wars 1, I want to assemble a list of those artists that make the pieces of media I enjoy. Through assembling this web…

  5. Being able to ask the search engine I question about a video game. Example could be instead of searching people or game you could query a separate group called "Questions" then type "Who is the creator of pac man" or "Who did software development for ultima online" etc. Could also be carried over to IMDB. example "who played billy in billy madison"

  7. The only other games shown when on a game profile are reccomendations and past visits, DLC/updates notwithstanding. Design-wise there's a lot of empty space that could be utilized to fill with this, in my opinion, important additional information. Stuff like a Franchise view showing a simplified timeline of sequels/prequels, spinoffs. And perhaps the most egregious, mods are nowhere to be found! As far as I can tell you can only find a mod (or fangames for that matter) by specifically searching for the title, basically ensuring they will never be 'organically' discovered. That in particular could easily be solved by…

  8. Currently it is possible to add a status to each game entry of the database, which doesn't make sense sometimes: it should be possible to select which "version" of the game the user own and, separately, the status of the game.

    I might own a specific "edition" of a game (e.g. deluxe, collector, goty, etc...) but I am not playing the specific edition, I'm playing the game which is the same regardless the edition I own.
    Similar thing happens (especially) with bundles, as I own a bundle but I might (probably) have different status for each game of the bundle.

  9. I find it a bit disappointing that IGDB does not allow users to change their username, display name, and profile picture unlike over on Twitch. While such features might not seem important for a database site, adding such would benefit users who may not be comfortable continuing to use an identity they no longer go by. Providing such features, even in the form of just resyncing a user's Twitch account with their updated information, would also allow users to keep their karma score instead of having to start from scratch by making a whole separate account just to use a…

  10. It would be nice to have the possibility to add additional information when adding a game to own lists such as:
    format (physical or digital);
    purchase date and price;
    started and finished date (multiple times for multiple playtroughs).
    But, more importantly, the possibility to track individually different versions of the game; I might have completed a game on a platform, finished on another and playing on another one.

  11. Add Archipelago Randomizer as a Catergory on Twitch
    Information about Archipelago > https://archipelago.gg/

    Tldr:
    This is a cross-game modification system which randomizes different games, then uses the result to build a single unified multi-player game. Items from one game may be present in another, and you will need your fellow players to find items you need in their games to help you complete your own.
    Many people stream it at the moment, Solo and In groups- it would be easier to have one category instead of people hopping from game to game category to fit twitch TOS

  13. It would be extremely helpful for people with large numbers of followed channels to select particular categories in the left-hand channel sidebar. For example, if I want to only see channels playing Grand Theft Auto V, I could sort by category and open a drop down list.

  14. Played the game? No = skip to next, Yes = rate and confirm to proceed to the next.
    I don't want to search one by one the 400 games i've played. If you guys can make it personalized based on games already rated, even better.

  15. I did a quick advanced search of games, which I wanted to share with my freind. But the URL does not display any filtering. It would be cool if we could click share link and it would create a link I can give to him so it shows him my filtered list. The only work around I have is to screenshot the page and send him the image.

  16. I really don't like the way that IGDB completely closes a submission upon rejection and erases everything, requiring it to be recreated. Not being able to appeal an uninformed decision without having to redo work really sucks and discourages me from submitting content to the database. Sometimes, my submissions are removed without any given reason, and more often than not they're removed over something I could have easily provided a source/clarification for rather than having to rewrite everything.

    I would like to have the option of having a dialogue with an admin before a submission is obliterated from the site.

  17. Now that twitch has the "view on IGDB" feature, the reverse of it will be really useful for both game devs as well as contributors. It will also help in finding if there is any issue in the one-to-one mapping.

  18. 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.

  19. Hi guys!! I search about a filter by oficial games but I'm not found :(
    Maybe this filter is interesting, because right now the API returns a lot of non oficial games from the list.

    Thankssss <3

  20. I noticed through advanced search a large number of games have tags to fit the year they were released, however a manual system creates some holes in that example and more uncommon titles don't have the tag. It would benefit much more to give a game the proper tag via the accepted change itself once it's release date is given/edited.
