  1. The element used for browsing lists of games that fit a certain page’s criteria (e.g. game engine pages, category/keyword pages, franchise pages) sometimes does not display the pagination, preventing users from seeing any games beyond the first 10 shown. Changing the sort mode can allow you to see a different slice of 10 games, thus verifying that there should be additional pages visible.

    some examples:

    Heya! Indeed definitely a bug, we’ve added this into our backlog and will look at a fix as soon as possible.
    Thanks!

  2. 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!

  3. It's a distinct enough style of gameplay that it should be a genre rather than just a keyword.

  4. (Confirmed in the Pipeline)
    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!

  5. 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.

  6. Add Brazil and UK region for game release dates, because there are games released specificaly for those regions. Mainly Brazil, because there the Master System and Zeebo consoles have many Brazil only games released.

  7. Besides the confusion with genres and themes (and things being really blanket), it would be great if people upvote or downvote genres to video games instead of how it is currently, where users can add whatever genres/tags they want with moderation, which leads to Steam/IGDB tags that don't really help for having users find similar games.

  8. Have more options in the personalise home screen that change the categories that show, and maybe change the locations like widgets.

    Bee able to see suggested games (based on ratings), see karma hunter categories (missing credits, missing screenshots), be able to make the coming soon big like the popular games right now etc.

    Hey!

    Awesome suggestion thank you. Revisiting the homepage is definitely planned in the future. Right now we do have filters by platforms that will impact the games reviewed and the coming soon/recently released sections.

    Being able to showcase more community driven games, such as rated, reviewed or contributed is definitely one good option.

    We’ll have announcements when we return to this! thanks

  9. Sometimes users may not log onto the site for a time, while there may be pending questions from Admins that may require feedback or clarification to get approved.

    Having the ability to enable Email Notifications for new comments on pending entries could help notify users in a more convenient way.

    Hey! There is very much a need for this absolutely. However it wouldn’t be a simple implementation at this point of time.

    We’ll definitely stay in touch when we proceed forward!
    thanks

  10. Would allow users to import/export their lists from/to other services like Playnite and RAWG.

  11. It would be great if I could get notified about game info changes for games I follow. Maybe you could show a message in notification section for this.

  12. I feel like there should be a general category for certain series. Such as Zelda, Mario, Megaman, RE, Digimon all under one catergory instead of individual games(unless they are a new). IGDB already implements this under what they call "Collections."

    What do you think? People who play older titles but are a part of said series' community would be more in their line of audience. It's better than having them spread out in random places like Retro or Just Chatting. So instead of having massive communities around certain games, whether they are thriving or dying, you can have a continuous…

  13. To build up our personal libraries on IGDB, we wouldn't have to manually search for and add each game. We could simply connect our IGDB accounts to our accounts on all of those services, and IGDB would automatically populate our libraries with the games that exist in our libraries on each of those retailers. Steam, for example, has a 'sign in with Steam' function that IGDB could implement, and we could use it to connect our IGDB accounts to our Steam accounts. Other game retailers have similar functions; that's how GOG Galaxy 2.0's integrations work.
    This way, in IGDB I'd…

  14. I was thinking about how to increase the amount of user reviews and interactivity between members and think this may be the best solution. Right now there is a section for recently reviewed games, but that doesn't seem to be showing user reviews? (Clicking on most items returns nothing, may be recently rated?) This would give more incentive to leave reviews which would appear on the front page for a short amount of time. Could be as simple as Game Cover art, reviewer name and rating, with a link to the game page, a more advanced method would be to…

  15. The game bundle SEGA Mega Drive & Genesis Classics (https://www.igdb.com/games/sega-mega-drive-and-genesis-classics) contains a large amount of games on the webpage, but in the API only one game is returned, sonic:

    'fieldsname, url, bundles; where bundles = (80185); limit 50;' https://api-v3.igdb.com/games
    [
    {
    id: 3192,
    bundles: [
    4157,
    7189,
    20502,
    20621,
    22297,
    46204,
    80185,
    86067,
    96393,
    99953
    ],
    name: Sonic the Hedgehog,
    url: https://www.igdb.com/games/sonic-the-hedgehog
    }
    ]

    If you pick one of the games listed on the web page as in that bundle that is missing from the API, for example Gain Ground, the web page for Gain Ground says it…

  16. Multiple selectable choices which defines what kind of distribution the game have:

    – Physical media: big box, jewel case only, DVD, paper sleeve etc.
    – Digital

  17. Display the user rating you rated for games in lists; would be easier to see which ones you have rated.

  18. Currently if you look at a series collection page, the main games, dlc and expansions are listed, but not standalone expansions.

    Examples:
    https://www.igdb.com/games/nostalgia-forte is not listed on its series collection page https://www.igdb.com/collections/nostalgia

    https://www.igdb.com/games/far-cry-3-blood-dragon is not listed on its series collection page https://www.igdb.com/collections/far-cry

    I think it is hard to find those stand alone expansions from the perspective of trying to find all standalone games in a series and would really like to have them represented.

  19. 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

  20. This genre seems to me cross-categorized with many other genres. These types of games include Gradius, Raiden, 1942, Ikaruga, etc.
