Popularity attribute not functional
The current popularity value for a game doesn't make any sense.
Please see below examples showing the popularity value with the hypes, and number of user ratings.
"name": "Rune Factory 4 Special",
"name": "Zombie Driver: Immortal Edition",
As you can see, the top 2 games by popularity both have 0 user ratings. How can these be the most popular games on IGDB?
The docs say 'The popularity number is calculated using usage statistics of game pages at https://www.igdb.com' which can't possibly be true if these games are at the top.
We’re not currently supporting popularity unfortunately, the existing hypes in the API are out of date and therefore out of sync, which is very likely why you’re getting those games as results.
We will be updating our documentation to reflect this, but meanwhile we recommend not using Popularity since it isn’t providing an accurate count.
