How it works:
  • Choose a relevant category for your idea and check to see if any other users have already submitted this suggestion before creating your own
  • Be clear with your suggestion, provide examples and solutions to the problem you are posing. Suggestions without actionable feedback may be closed without comment
  • Upvote existing ideas, as opposed to creating multiple similar requests
  • Be sure to share your suggestion with others to gain more support!
  • Note: Suggestions are not guarantees that we will take action on an idea. We will try our best to communicate why an idea may not work, but may not always be able to share that information.
  • Titles that are unclear or unnecessarily vulgar may be reworded to better reflect the request for ease of discovery

  2. It would be extremely helpful for people with large numbers of followed channels to select particular categories in the left-hand channel sidebar. For example, if I want to only see channels playing Grand Theft Auto V, I could sort by category and open a drop down list.

  3. I did a quick advanced search of games, which I wanted to share with my freind. But the URL does not display any filtering. It would be cool if we could click share link and it would create a link I can give to him so it shows him my filtered list. The only work around I have is to screenshot the page and send him the image.

  4. I really don't like the way that IGDB completely closes a submission upon rejection and erases everything, requiring it to be recreated. Not being able to appeal an uninformed decision without having to redo work really sucks and discourages me from submitting content to the database. Sometimes, my submissions are removed without any given reason, and more often than not they're removed over something I could have easily provided a source/clarification for rather than having to rewrite everything.

    I would like to have the option of having a dialogue with an admin before a submission is obliterated from the site.

  5. Hi guys!! I search about a filter by oficial games but I'm not found :(
    Maybe this filter is interesting, because right now the API returns a lot of non oficial games from the list.

    Thankssss <3

  6. Having a link to a game's humble store (https://www.humblebundle.com/store) page would be nice as quite a few streamers are humble partners as well.

  7. 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!

  8. 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…

  9. I don't thing it's a good thing that you greyed out the options to add an upcoming game as "Played" or "Playing". Many of these games have demos or betas available to try them and we won't be able to track them.

  10. 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…

  11. 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:

  12. I would like to get suggestions based on what my friends are currently playing. Just a section that says what my friends are playing, not the whole discover thing.

  13. I actually like the new placeholder image for missing covers on entries, however, the same image will show for pending uploads to new covers while the system caches the preview. This can be confusing to new users that don't understand they simply need to wait for their submission to upload before it displays. A separate "preview pending" image would help to communicate this to new users.

  14. I'd like a way to link releases and publishers. For instance, a game might have been published by Midway in North America and Taito in Japan. Right now there's no way to distinguish such information, and both appear as publishers with no additional information. Also, a game might have been published by different companies at different times on the same platform - this would also be helpful to be able to differentiate.

    Hey there!

    Could you clarity what do you mean by data in this case, is it to do with the lists and ratings in particular?

    Curious to learn more about such a use case, is there a particular need to re-upload the exported CSV or Excel document rather than use the website?

    Thanks!

    Hi!

    Could you give us more information what you mean in this case? By status do you mean adding a new one along side Alpha, Beta, Early Access, Cancelled etc..?

    If so how would you define Dropped, it sounds like it would be similar to cancelled, as in the development has been in definitely put on hold.

    Thanks!

  18. 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

    Hi!

    We looked into this and we thought that indeed adding Gamejolt might be a good fit. This has been added to our backlog and we’ll take a look at it when we can.

    Thank you for the suggestion!

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

  20. Many games have chapters, which could be listed here potentially alongside a time to beat for each chapter since games can have 30 minute chapters or 2 hour chapters. This would help people get general ideas of where they are in the game, or simply compare playtime by chapter.
