  1. 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!

  2. A new game type "Expanded Bundle. I have run into a couple of situations now where a game bundles a couple of older games within it's new release. Right now they usually sit as a main game, since the new content falls under a new game, but adding this would allow us to link the bundled games additionally to reduce confusion.

  3. 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…

  4. 6% of males and ~0.4% females have color blindness. A good number of games feature a colorblind mode (Forza 5 for instance). Many don't and have nearly unplayable sections as a result.
    When I'm looking for a game, one of my greatest concerns is with color-coded information. If it exists, I need to see it in action, and if it's red-green or any other combination that is a problem, I need to know if I can change it. If I can't change it, I'll usually pass.

    Some examples:
    RTSs sometimes use red and green icons on minimaps - literally any…

    Hello!


    This is a great suggestion thank you! Actually the timing couldn't be more ideal, as we are in fact investigating how we could tackle accessibility data in games, which would cover Colour Blindness of course. 


    This might be a long process (no ETA unfortunately), but something we are very interested in indeed :) 


    Thank you!




  5. 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…

  7. There's already a request for logos and I would like to add this request for icons, like the ones used for the game shortcuts.
    It is common for computer games to have them, and some other platforms have icons of the games in some places (like on the memory card management system).

  8. Add an option to the /advanced_search to filter something out, like a platform. This way people can more easily find platform exclusives.

  9. ELSPA was the rating system used in EU before the PEGI system replaced it.

    Hey! We have decided that it would be very interesting to have the ELSPA ratings on IGDB and we would like to add it in the near future. We we probably bundle a couple of new age ratings together and add it sometime next year. 

  10. How to download all cover and artwork images of IGDB games?

  12. When you filter by alphabetical order or Rating or release date the list is different but the number of pages does not change.
    An example is PS1 since the alphabetical order A - Z page 54 ends up in the letter D and from Z - A page 54 ends up in the S. Which means that games with initials E to R do not appear in alphabetical order however in other orders they appear and others do not Final Fantasy VII appears in the order by Rating but not by Release Date or Alphabetical

  13. 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:

  14. Arcade or console games usually have an internal serial
    e.g. http://redump.org/discs/system/naomi/

    And different port of the same game would have its unique serial on different platforms

  15. I'm currently working on a project where any (eventual) users of my app will (with their consent) be parsing their game libraries and providing data where it's missing in igdb, I'd like to be able to post this data via my app to your database.

    Obviously, I'm not expecting to be able to post directly, but the ability to log contribution requests via POST commands would be good.

  16. Feedback...
    Have been using the site for a few weeks to compile release lists. There are some pros and cons to consider vs Metacritic and other sources.
    Games are frequently missing from search and upcoming releases. These tend to be smaller titles such as Vincemus - Air Combat (a WWII aerial combat game on Steam that at time of writing has sub100 followers according to Steamdb.)
    Other titles have missing platform associations, such as Catie in Meowmeowland which was missing PS4/5 and Xbox O/S/X, and similarly Weird West was assigned last gen PS4 and next gen Xbox S|X but missing…

  17. 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.

  18. Just like we have websites like Wikipedia and Wikia, Google Arts and Culture also have info pertaining to games.

    Example: https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/video-game-super-nintendo-super-mario-world-nintendo/aQG4PR61zCQHRA?hl=en&avm=4

    This is very interesting but comes with a few issues, such as: The library isn't massive (right now) so not all games will have a link that can be added. In addition, they seem to separate for example the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the same game and then it will be hard to know what link to add where. We're going to hold off on this one for now, but could potentially be interesting in the future especially if the library grows.

  19. 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. Hi,

    I'm having issues with the APIs Pagination features. When making the following call the last item on the list of games is 'Pokemon Silver':

    request search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    I then make this second call to get the second page of items, which returns 'Pokemon Silver' as the first result:

    search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;o 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    At first I thought this was an issue with the offset, but if I search for another term it works okay. Any ideas what may be causing this?
