There are two categories 3 in the returned object, which does not correspond to an enum in the documentation; a category 3 corresponding to giantbomb can be added which would fix this.1 vote
Currently, logging in while browsing a page will send the user to the Discover page. This should be altered so that logging in, or even signing up, should keep you on the present page. This will make users feel more welcome while motivating newcomers to keep browsing. This is admittedly a rather small issue and the logging in aspect will be largely mitigated once the site is optimized to where users aren't logged out at certain intervals, but still seems significant enough to recommend.1 vote
Multiple selectable choices which defines what kind of distribution the game have:

– Digital1 vote
Display the user rating you rated for games in lists; would be easier to see which ones you have rated.1 vote
http://retroachievements.org/ is a platform which provides achievements for retro games running in emulators, Currently there are only achievement categories for Steam, PSN and Xbox.
If we had a RetroAchievements category we could add achievements to thousands of games which may never have achievement's otherwise. It would be very cool for things like GOG Galaxy 2.0 integration plugins2 votes
Ability to add game-specific controllers/accessories to their page. For example the guitar in guitar hero games, the camera with Eyetoy games, the dance mat for DDR games and so on. Along with the option to set whether the item is mandatory or not.1 vote
I'm having an issue where preforming API searches doesn't return games that exists on the IGDB site.
But when I search via the API I get no results back.
I'm searching this endpoint:
And here's my search body:
search "Pokémon x"; fields id,name,cover.imageid,firstrelease_date; where cover != null; limit 5;
I get an empty JSON result.4 votes
Company logos change with time and many of them do drastic changes. Suggestion to be able to upload more than 1 logo as well as date input accompanying logos.
Also have a nice logo picture timeline where each logo has a 'from' and 'to' date associated.1 vote
Add Russia as region in release date. A lot of Russian exclusive games out there, and also those that do came out to the rest of Europe.1 vote
There could be a way to link a game to another as a sequel or prequel, what would be good for game series like Metal Gear and The Legend of Zelda, for example. In the game page, there could be a place saying "Sequel to "game X" and "Prequel of "game Y".3 votes
When searching for games, those with the "dupe" category could be hidden. In this way the results shown are cleaner.5 votes
Oh yes absolutely this is a big one we’ve been wanting to do. We have a full ‘archive’ solution planned that is awaiting engineering work.
We should be starting in this fairly soon.
This goes slightly with the request for alternate cover options for titles, it would be helpful if various regional titles displayed beneath the main page titles, rather than a small subtext at the bottom of the page.

Pretty arbitrary, but I have an issue finding another Theme that properly catagorizes titles like Wii Fit or Dance Dance Revolution1 vote
Currently if you look at a series collection page, the main games, dlc and expansions are listed, but not standalone expansions.
I think it is hard to find those stand alone expansions from the perspective of trying to find all standalone games in a series and would really like to have them represented.1 vote
Game revisions (like Alpha, Beta,1.0,1.1,1.2,2.0, etc) would be good for reviews, because the game can change since someone reviewed the game. Even old games have revision (Rev 1, Rev 2, like in the No-Intro notation). It is not a particularly needed data point, but some games change a lot with time.2 votes
Can't receive updated data for this game through the API.2 votes
Heya! We’re currently doing large changes around the consistency of data between our site and API. These out of sync issues should be resolved very soon, and we will be going back to look at individual cases such as these games afterwards if there are still edge cases.
If you spot any more feel free to add them in the comments as it could be helpful.
Thanks a lot and apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime!
two games are linked below where the listed 'Platforms' (near the top of the game page, below 'Genre') don't correspond with the full set of platforms in the Release Dates section.
in both instances the missing platforms are 'Mac' and 'Linux', don't know whether it's an issue specific to those platforms or merely coincidental.
of note is that one of these (Transistor) also has some platform information added on the Companies page, while the other (Nuclear Throne) does not.
Heya! Well spotted thank you. This has now been added to our backlog so we can get around to a fix in the near future. Stay tuned!
According to contribution guidelines, "Genre is the first tier in our 3-tier categorization system. Choose the most fitting genre(s) to broadly describe the game."
"Indie" is not the primary, broad description for a game. Maybe in 2007, but not today. They are puzzles/platformers/etc before they are indie. Indie is better suited as a keyword, if anything.9 votes
As means of promoting game editing, there could be a game recommendation for the user. It would be based on the game pages the user visited, the games the user rated, etc. A notification could appear on the website with the recommendation, and there could be a place in "Karma hunters" for some more recommendations.
It would certainly help with many more game info missing, as the person would be prompted to help with something they most probably know.1 vote
