    In addition to Steam and mobile platforms, links to the web storefronts of additional platforms would be helpful.

    Heya!
    Update on this, we identified one possible issue which is that unlike PC stores, most console links are region specific.
    So we’re investigating how we could either generalised them or whether we’d introduce this when we tackle localization of IGDB.
    Stay tuned!

  2. The idea is to have a special section called "Editions" which would be different from "Versions". This section would be only dedicated to collector's editions, GOTY and so on. Could be added under the "This game is a version." section on the edit page, as "This game is a special edition."

    Hey!
    Yesterday we released the first phase of a project to redo version which helps this. We do still have versions, but going forward it will only be used for editions indeed.
    we added support for Remake, Remasters, Expanded Games, Ports, and Forks. Any of these won’t need to be marked as a Version anymore :)

  3. Few companies maintain the same name forever. Some rename, merge, are bought out, or generally acquired. It would be helpful to manage the progression of various devs and publishers with a timeline progression and/or a tree of ownership.

    Ex.
    1) Squaresoft > Square > Square and Enix merge > SquareEnix

    2) Namco and Bandai merge > Namco Bandai > Bandai Namco Games

    3) Activision and Blizzard Merge > Create holding company called Activision Blizzard that owns the two companies Activision and Blizzard.

    Hello!
    We are looking at redoing our company data taxonomy, part of which is possibly adding several ‘layers’ to companies, such as Divisions for example.

    Companies are a bit lacking at the moment as we historically have been focusing on Games, but we gradually intend to start giving them more love :)

    Stay tuned!

  4. Create game lists by importing what you own from platforms like steam

  5. Something that would mirror my preferences from Twitch, as well as save battery life on mobile phones/laptops and be easier on the eyes from all the stark white would be the ability to have a Site-wide Dark Mode.

    There are a few displays this would probably help as well, like you're daily output graph on the Karma Hunters page, which can be difficult to view on some LCD monitors at non-optimal viewing angles.

  6. Something that can become rather repetitive and even prevent users from adding all the Add-ons for a given title is repetitively entering the same data points over and over.

    It would be extremely helpful if you set an entry to be an Addon, Expansion, Version or other relevant entry to copy all data relevant data from the original title.

    Such as:
    - Categorization fields
    - Company fields
    - Websites
    - Engine
    - Age Ratings

    Ex. LittleBigPlanet

    Hey! Excellent suggestion, in fact we have something very similar in our Backlog already, with a ‘inherit data from parent’ feature.

    It’s just at an idea stage for now, but we’ll look into planning in in accordance with our roadmap as soon as possible.
    Cheers!

  7. When a entry is "deleted" in favor of a duplicate.

    Send a update for and update both entries.

    The old/dead entry, remove all data (consider the remove optional) and add a

    replaced_by: new_id

    entry.

    The new entry is updated with an existed_as which is an array of "old id's" that have been merged into the record

  8. Instead of using random algorithm for similar games on IGDB pages. Make users enable recommend games based on their review. See MyAnimeList for the implementation. Its something like this :

    If you like [Insert game title], then you can try this based on users recommendation and similar theme.

  9. I find filtering options missing in the results of the Karma Hunters sections.

    For example to be able to filter in the section "Missing Covers" by platform, or in the section "Under 25% Information" by "Empty developer", "Empty Publisher", etc ..

    Having these filtering options would make easy, and also would encourage users, to fill in missing information

  10. 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 plugins

    Heya!

    This is interesting for sure, we would have to look into it. One thing that comes to mind is whether or not those achievement lists are official, or approved by the original developer/publisher, as this could prove tricky from an IP perspective. Since we would redistribute the data, we’re very careful about the source and provenance.

    We’ll be looking into this internally first. Thanks!

  11. 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.

    Example:
    Title: Fatal Frame (NA)
    Subtitle: Also known as: 零 (Zero - JP), Project Zero (EU)

    After confirming a duplicate listing for deletion, it would be helpful to users that have saved those titles by Following, Saving to Lists or to Played listings to forward those links to the correct page, rather than the "Oops" broken link.

    Heyhey,

    So shedding some more light onto this.
    While we are going to be working on a proper way to remove ‘bad pages, and duplicates’, this project is likely going to come in several phases.

    The initial phase is removing the pages form the site, and stop syncing them with the API.
    The later phase would be us building tools to automatically swap the game IDs on lists, reviews, etc.. which would take care of this.

    Thanks!

  13. 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…

  14. Specifically for PC games, this website gives info on how to get games running correctly and well, with patches such as widescreen support and workarounds to DRMs. For many older games, the information on this website is essential to get the game running correctly. Thanks!

  15. My idea is simple; adding GameFAQ pages to the possible website additions on the website. This will allow people easy access to both answers to questions they might have regarding the game as well as a walkthrough if needed.

  16. Another release region request. Generally these will almost always be included in a general North American [NA] release, but there are rare exceptions.

    God of War Saga
    (known as God of War Omega Collection in Latin America, released November 20, 2012 and released as a 3 disc bundle instead of 2)
    IGDB: https://www.igdb.com/games/god-of-war-saga
    Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GodofWarvideogamecollections#GodofWarSaga

  17. Creat lists that you can share with others.
    For example “list of all new e3 games”

  18. Something that comes up with Collections and Bundles are Age Rating Ranges, where you'll have a packages with multiple games than vary in ratings.

    Ex. Jak & Daxter Collection
    ESRB: E - T

  19. If a title is listed as an Episode (a game that continues a core story released in stages and/or uses the same game save data), it does not list the other Episodes in the series as Bundles or Expansions do. Currently, you can only link to a single title, and there is no means of stepping to the previous or next Episode.

    Ex.
    a) .hack//Infection Part 1, .hack//Mutation Part 2, .hack//Outbreak Part 3, .hack//Quarantine Part 4

    b) Virtually all Telltale games.

    This is actually in the backlog and already prioritised.
    We’re looking at implementing a fresh way of displaying Additional Content on game pages, which would include Episodes.

    Stay tuned!

  20. Currently, only actual Bundle pages appear to display titles included. It would be helpful if those individual titles also displayed the collections and bundles they are included in.
