  1. It would be great if the API returned which company worked on which platform, for example Company A worked on platforms X, Y and Company B on platform Z. This information is visible on the edit page on IGDB, but not via the API (should presumably be included in the "involved companies" endpoint).

  2. The ability to link a gamejolt.com page with your games since most of my games are on Gamejolt and i'd like to make categories for them

  3. Just a button on IGDB to go to a random game in the database. Maybe you can set a date frame or different filters to it but in general a button to show a random game would be awesome.

    Hey!

    This is a good suggestion thank you! This has been discussed a couple of times in the past. We can’t promise any ETA on such a feature but it would be interesting to investigate.

    Our main concerns so far would be what can be included is random: should it have filters, should it be games on all platforms or only selected ones, all age ratings etc..

    If you have more ideas or specifics that always helps, we’ll leave this ticket open meanwhile!
    Thank you!

  4. Many players use the "Shogi" category without having any idea what Pony Canyon is.

    Ladies' Professional Shogi_Harbour and I (amateur) recommend this description:
    Traditional Japanese board game similar to chess.

    Hi!

    Unfortunately this Twitch category isn’t coming from IGDB anymore, as per a previous userVoice suggestion it was decided that Shogi deserved it’s own (non video game)-category.
    On IGDB there was a GameBoy came which Twitch was pulling from, but this isn’t the case anymore.

    As this is not pulled from an IGDB entry it needs to be updated by Twitch itself. We can recommend putting a request here instead: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discover

    Thanks!

  5. Have more options in the personalise home screen that change the categories that show, and maybe change the locations like widgets.

    Bee able to see suggested games (based on ratings), see karma hunter categories (missing credits, missing screenshots), be able to make the coming soon big like the popular games right now etc.

    Hey!

    Awesome suggestion thank you. Revisiting the homepage is definitely planned in the future. Right now we do have filters by platforms that will impact the games reviewed and the coming soon/recently released sections.

    Being able to showcase more community driven games, such as rated, reviewed or contributed is definitely one good option.

    We’ll have announcements when we return to this! thanks

  6. Several games have interesting or obscure caveats in terms of their release or their playability, and it's worth mentioning them for the sake of completeness. For example, Donkey Kong Junior is listed as a Gameboy Advance release, which is technically correct, but it was only playable via the e-Reader, which is not obvious. Additionally, Donkey Kong Junior also exists as a playable game within Game and Watch Gallery 3 and 4, which may technically not count as a release but deserves mentioning somewhere. There are several examples of games with unique scenarios like this, and this data doesn't really have…

    Hey! This is excellent, we ourselves have been wanting Triva data for a long time. Although this isn’t a high priority data it would offer a lot in terms of general knowledge.

    However this is a difficult data to handle, as verifying it can be quite difficult and time consuming. Eventually we will revisit the concept and see what options we can come up with to faciliate this.

    Leaving this ticket open if other users have suggestions, such as sources of gaming trivia that could be researched.

    Thanks!

  7. There is already a wealth of video types one can choose from when uploading a video related to a game, but commercials for a game are not included. These commercials often give an insight into the culture of the era in which the game was released, or occasionally have some lore or culture of their own.

    Hey!
    Good news! We discussed this internally, and thought it would indeed be a great addition!

    We’ll be adding a new category for our videos labeled Commercial Trailer.

    We’ll be in touch once it’s done and live! Thanks again for the suggestion :)

  8. This one I never really considered until I came across multiple good examples, and they are a step above Tiger Electronics games.

    Plug-and-Play TV Games, or Handheld TV Games were cheap, "toy-isle" games that hooked up directly to a TV to play one-off titles, coming with a cheap controller or even a light-gun.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HandheldTVgame

    TMNT examples:
    http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/tmnt/tmnt13.htm

    I wouldn't look to add each and every one as a Platform, but a generic "Plug-and-Play" Platform like the legacy Mobile Platform could help give these a Platform to live on.

    Hey!

    We looked into this and thought it was a good fit for sure. We might end up tackling this at the same time as better handling of similar platforms such as Tiger electronics.

    Thanks!

  9. This might be alittle complicated without some way for Users to manually submit Critic Review links, but there are a large number of high profile journalists and game reviewers that have stepped away from writing full articles on a game that an AI bot can web-crawl, and have switched to primarily YouTube video reviews. Many of these are now on Metacritic as well.

  10. When sorting lists by Release Date, titles missing ones are often sorted to the front as future titles, or to identify ones that need a Release Date added. However, cancelled titles never hope to come out, and therefore never will have a date. Ability to disable this setting, or identify the time it was announced as cancelled could alleviate this problem, over a permanent TBA or TBD.

  11. This might sound counter-intuitive, but in regards to titles that don't involve Storylines, an option to disable the Storyline feature, or just a simple flag that states the title has no in-game plotline, would help to identify the number of titles in the database that have no need for the tag.

    Annual sports titles or generic puzzle games really have no need for the datapoint, and it could greatly reduce the Karma Hunters page percentage below 93% Missing Storylines.

  12. Add Wikidata item related to the game. Wikidata links to IGDB and this could be a way for IGDB to link back to Wikidata.

  13. Sometimes users may not log onto the site for a time, while there may be pending questions from Admins that may require feedback or clarification to get approved.

    Having the ability to enable Email Notifications for new comments on pending entries could help notify users in a more convenient way.

    Hey! There is very much a need for this absolutely. However it wouldn’t be a simple implementation at this point of time.

    We’ll definitely stay in touch when we proceed forward!
    thanks

  14. There are times some users confuse the general name of "Mobile" to include iOS, Android and other modern mobile platforms.

    It might be prudent to rename this to Legacy Mobile, JAVA, WAP, or other name to help differentiate it form those common names.

  16. On the Press Kit pages, such as https://www.igdb.com/games/outriders/presskit there is a note on the inspiration of the press kit: Inspired by presskit() by Rami Ismail(Vlambeer)

    While the Vlambeer twitter that is linked to still exists, the company ended in 2020, so my suggestion is to change the Vlambeer link to that of Rami Ismail's own twitter https://twitter.com/tha_rami

  18. Pick topics on how to review a game

    example
    20% gameplay
    80% soundtrack

    don't ask the user for a final score determine the total score based on each category

    does not have to be my idea though just upvote this if you wanna see a more robust review system

  20. I've been looking at how to get a card game that is currently being streamed on twitch by a few people listed in IGDB so that twitch will have it listed as a game.

    Currently people are just streaming it under the Magic the Gathering label because you have to pick something and that is card-gamey. But whilst MTG is the largest card game, many other games are seeing success online in various forms.

    Whilst pokemon and MTG command the limelight in terms of box openings etc.
    There are plenty of people playing other card games virtually over webcam or…
