  • 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. This might be alittle complicated without some way for Users to manually submit Critic Review links, but there are a large number of high profile journalists and game reviewers that have stepped away from writing full articles on a game that an AI bot can web-crawl, and have switched to primarily YouTube video reviews. Many of these are now on Metacritic as well.

  4. On the Press Kit pages, such as https://www.igdb.com/games/outriders/presskit there is a note on the inspiration of the press kit: Inspired by presskit() by Rami Ismail(Vlambeer)

    While the Vlambeer twitter that is linked to still exists, the company ended in 2020, so my suggestion is to change the Vlambeer link to that of Rami Ismail's own twitter https://twitter.com/tha_rami

  6. 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.

  7. Currently, when titles do not have an included Screenshot, the highlighted backdrop of the page displays a green background color. While I'm sure this is intentional in order to entice users to always be sure to add one, there isn't really anything that communicates this is what caused the green background. Further from an aesthetic point of view, it highly clashes with the purple "theme" of Twitch/IGDB.

    As a suggestion, Twitch channels that don't include a background image will display a repeating pattern of the user's name. Or, an icon to signify a broken image to tell users to add…

  8. As some reviews age, some sites can go out of business or just shut down. However there doesn't appear to be an automatic way the database removes or reports broken links or updates scores as they go away. Additionally, some of these will push scores averages down if they continue to inaccurately are placed as Review Scores, yet hold broken links.

    Steel Battalion
    https://www.igdb.com/games/steel-battalion
    - 404 Review Links (Gaming Trend)

    Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly
    https://www.igdb.com/games/fatal-frame-ii-crimson-butterfly
    - Inaccurate count of 3 reviews on Game Page, but 2 reviews listed on Critic Reviews breakdown page.

  9. It would be great if your database had a link to live stream channels for the game.

    For example GTA V could point you to these links.

    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Grand%20Theft%20Auto%20V

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOquqcRMJmURiGfEnaitptg

    https://www.facebook.com/gaming/game/grandtheftautov

    Not sure if there are other similar sites... But also if you add this please open it up to the API as well!

    Thanks!

  10. Some lesser played games don't have an icon, a streamer should be able to submit an icon to Twitch after streaming the game for a certain amount of time.

    Hey there!
    By icons, do you mean the (game) box arts/covers?

    If so, we have plans to improve coverage of those on Twitch via IGDB covers, but also eventually help streamers and viewers add to those on IGDB.

    Thanks!

  11. I haven't received any new screenshots since Nov 16th via webhook. I am still receiving other models such as games, covers, etc. so I'm guessing this might be specific to the screenshot endpoint.

    I also don't believe this is on my side since I refresh my webhooks daily and have verified the setup.

  12. Pages 1, 2, and 3 of rated games, sorted by rating, does not show all of the games. Games of the same rating seem to be mixed up, and not using a second sorting column like game name to determine which should show on subsequent pages. This may be broken in the API as well, but I have not confirmed.

  13. Both Castlevania for the N64 and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness are missing from the Categories menu of Twitch, but they are not missing from IGDB's site. I have spent the better part of two hours trying to figure out how to inform someone, ANYONE, of this (admittedly small) oversight and ended up here.

    There has to be a better way to inform Twitch/IGDB of problems of this nature than to wander aimlessly around the Twitch help section, then give up and use the feedback forum, hoping that a relatively minor fix will be noticed by someone with the power and…

    Hey there!

    For all things IGDB it is best to come to us directly rather than via Twitch help. Our preferred way is via Discord :)

    Discord: discord.gg/igdb
    Contact form: https://www.igdb.com/feedbacks/new
    Twitter: https://twitter.com/IGDBcom

    Regarding the Twitch categories, while IGDB provides the data but what ends up there is decided by Twitch itself. In the case of Castlevania it is due to the fact Twitch is not ingesting Versions of games at this time. We are however working on expanding the data set so that they can become categories. Stay tuned!

  14. When I search for a game in the advanced search, I find the dates of some games that were released on pc are incorrect as for the date of their real release on a pc. Now these games Appear with dates of their first release on any platform and not their first release on a PC. Please fix that as for pc and the other platforms

    sorry for my bad english

  16. My Search query to IGDB API is failing with status code 400 if the search text contains a back slash \ in it:
    I am using below syntax:
    const { q } = req.query
    let fields = name, collection
    apicalypse(requestOptions)
    .fields(fields)
    .limit(50)
    .search(q)
    .request('/games')
    .then(response => returnResponse(response, req, res))
    .catch(err => returnError(err, req, res))

    requestOptions are like this:
    const apiPath = 'https://api-v3.igdb.com'
    const defaultHeaders = {
    'Accept': "application/json",
    "user-key": apiKey
    }
    // Apicalypse Request Options
    const requestOptions = {
    queryMethod: 'body',
    method: 'post', // The default is get
    baseURL: apiPath,
    headers: defaultHeaders,
    responseType: 'json',
    timeout: 10000

  17. Some of the games don't get results through the API because the names used by ROM (and other game images) documenting organizations have some rules that don't apply to IGDB's main title rule.

    Some of them:

    If the title starts with an article, it goes to the end of the title. (Legend of Zelda, The)
    If there is a non-standard character, like slashes, quotes, etc, they are removed.
    The Japanese naming scheme uses double vowels instead of singles ones.

    It would be good to have as an alternative title option something like: "Alternative title - No-Intro Naming Convention".

    I'm pretty…

  19. When adding a comment to a game in a custom list – and that's all you do when editing the list – and then save the list, the comment will not be displayed until the list gets a game added/removed.

    EDIT: Needs more testing to pinpoint if it is consistent or just a cache coincidence.
