  • 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. I've come across a few videogame categories that should be merged together. First are duplicate categories for the same game:

    • "Digimon Battle" and "Digimon RPG" are the same game, the latter being the title of the current English release.
    • "Digimon World 2003" and "Digimon World 3" refer to the same game; the title change was a region difference. Should merge and rename to "Digimon World 3 / Digimon World 2003".
    • There are two categories named "Digimon" when I search for them, one with a cover and one without, not sure if that's a bug or something that needs to be…

  3. I'm experiencing an issue where the maximum number of objects allowed by the "limit" property isn't being returned, despite that number of objects existing.

    Consider this query:

    {baseUrl}/games
    body (text/plain): fields name,cover.imageid,firstrelease_date,platforms.name;limit: 10;offset: 30;search "halo";

    It's currently only returning 9 objects, but a search on IGDB.com reveals that there are 73 total and other queries (e.g., offset 40;) give 10 results as expected.

  4. Hello!

    The game "Unreal" (1998) has this edited Scabbard album cover (1996) as a picture for its the Twitch category. This has caused confusion in the past whether the category is actually for the game or not. It may also infringe some copyright laws regarding the album cover. Is there any way you can update it to a relevant picture? There are a few box art covers and other official artwork you can use instead of what seems to be a fanmade edit.

  9. Arcade or console games usually have an internal serial
    e.g. http://redump.org/discs/system/naomi/

    And different port of the same game would have its unique serial on different platforms

  10. I'm currently working on a project where any (eventual) users of my app will (with their consent) be parsing their game libraries and providing data where it's missing in igdb, I'd like to be able to post this data via my app to your database.

    Obviously, I'm not expecting to be able to post directly, but the ability to log contribution requests via POST commands would be good.

  11. Just like we have websites like Wikipedia and Wikia, Google Arts and Culture also have info pertaining to games.

    Example: https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/video-game-super-nintendo-super-mario-world-nintendo/aQG4PR61zCQHRA?hl=en&avm=4

    This is very interesting but comes with a few issues, such as: The library isn't massive (right now) so not all games will have a link that can be added. In addition, they seem to separate for example the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the same game and then it will be hard to know what link to add where. We're going to hold off on this one for now, but could potentially be interesting in the future especially if the library grows.

  12. https://api.igdb.com/v4/age_rating_content_descriptions has some unkown category enums like 58 and 50 for the ids, 13505 and 13506

  14. Hi,

    I'm having issues with the APIs Pagination features. When making the following call the last item on the list of games is 'Pokemon Silver':

    request search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    I then make this second call to get the second page of items, which returns 'Pokemon Silver' as the first result:

    search "Pokemon";f id,name,cover.image_id,aggregated_rating,aggregated_rating_count,first_release_date,summary;l 20;o 20;w version_parent = null&category = 0;

    At first I thought this was an issue with the offset, but if I search for another term it works okay. Any ideas what may be causing this?

  15. Game of Blocks is a PvP board game built on the blockchain. The game involves playing with other players and conquer its land. Players can win lands with their engagement in the game.
    We have 10+ streamers up to 300k followered on twitch who are going to stream around the game in March 2022. Could you please add a game category for it?
    We’d love viewers to easily discover around the game after the stream which is also for the best of the content creators’ efforts.
    Here’s the game website:https://www.gameofblocks.io/
    Here’s the game twitter:https://twitter.com/game_of_blocks
    Sorry that it’s urgent,…

  17. It is my understanding that you are planning to implement a system where multiple cover-arts can be uploaded. This is a good start, but I strongly suggest you consider allowing the defaults (those shown on the IGDB page to logged out users, and those shown on Twitch) to be selected on a case-by-case basis. Factors such as popularity in differing regions and how the game is represented need to be taken into account, for example there are games that, though they released in the US, never received any sizable following there whereas they did elsewhere. To only allow US box…

  18. Seeing as though Roblox is starting to be a sort of platform for games as opposed to being just a game itself, I think it would make sense to categorize games that run under Roblox (such as Bad Business, Phantom Forces, etc.) separately from Roblox itself. This is purely for game-tracking purposes in game-tracking services that use IGDB as their database.

  20. Have a non-custom list like want/playing/played that lists all companies you have added as favourite.
    The icon could be present in the company pages.
