  • 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

  1. Adding filter options to lists would be great. For example, if I want to filter a list to check only a specific genre, series or franchise, for example.

  2. There is already a wealth of video types one can choose from when uploading a video related to a game, but commercials for a game are not included. These commercials often give an insight into the culture of the era in which the game was released, or occasionally have some lore or culture of their own.

    Hey!
    Good news! We discussed this internally, and thought it would indeed be a great addition!

    We’ll be adding a new category for our videos labeled Commercial Trailer.

    We’ll be in touch once it’s done and live! Thanks again for the suggestion :)

  3. This one I never really considered until I came across multiple good examples, and they are a step above Tiger Electronics games.

    Plug-and-Play TV Games, or Handheld TV Games were cheap, "toy-isle" games that hooked up directly to a TV to play one-off titles, coming with a cheap controller or even a light-gun.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handheld_TV_game

    TMNT examples:
    http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/tmnt/tmnt13.htm

    I wouldn't look to add each and every one as a Platform, but a generic "Plug-and-Play" Platform like the legacy Mobile Platform could help give these a Platform to live on.

    Hey!

    We looked into this and thought it was a good fit for sure. We might end up tackling this at the same time as better handling of similar platforms such as Tiger electronics.

    Thanks!

  4. Do it by using both:

    Content filtering (content-based filtering): a user rates games and/or adds games to their personal library or lists, and then is shown stuff that has similar metadata to the games that that user has rated highly and/or added to their library. For example, games within the same genres, games from the same developers, games released in the same year, etc.

    Collaborative filtering (user-library-based filtering): a user rates games and/or adds games to their personal library, and then is shown stuff that other users who highly rated those same games and/or have those same games in their…

  5. Just like itch.io, there are lots of games are available on gamejolt.com. So, please add this feature where I can add Gamejolt link as a store. Thank you.

  6. Currently keywords are just a dumping ground for any word or phrase that is somewhat related to a game.

    Perhaps what is needed is a re-definition or splitting up of keywords into:

    Game mechanics (keywords)
    Atmospheric/visual (keywords)
    Player character (keywords)
    Other/Minor (keywords)

    Let's take the "rain" keyword for example. Currently there are 310 games with this keyword assigned. These games feature rain to various degrees for various purposes:

    Gameplay: Rain (Game) - a core mechanic where your character is invisible unless they stand in the rain.
    Atmospheric: Deadly Premonition - it rains for most of the game, and the raincoat…

  7. Adding a Full/Partial Controller Support column for titles in the database.

    This would be monumental for indexing games that can be played from the couch or not.

  8. 3D view of game covers, being able to view the front, sides and back sides.
    Could be nice when having many regions and scanned images of all sides of a box art.

    Hey! For now we’re focusing on a single cover standard. Which we’ll then expand to other regions to be able to cover more types of users for this standard.

    Once we have good coverage of those we may start looking at additional aspects such as sides, back of cover etc..

    Thanks!

  9. It would help with searching for specific kinds of games and I'll make sure to help with sorting games into these categories since I've made my own sites about such games.

  13. Titles contained within Collections and other Bundles can be listed as included by displaying links on the Game Page to each respective title's own page. However there is no current way to list titles unlocked as secrets from earning achievements or other various tasks in game.

    Ex. Completing the Xbox release of House of the Dead III unlocks House of the Dead 2.

  16. I think IGDB should borrow the "All DLC page" from Steam.

    So, on a page that has lots of DLC, say

    Snowrunner - https://www.igdb.com/games/snowrunner (12 DLC)
    or
    Euro Truck Sim 2 - https://www.igdb.com/games/euro-truck-simulator-2 (11 DLC)

    A page should be added say https://www.igdb.com/games/euro-truck-simulator-2/dlc

    Which has a layout simial to https://store.steampowered.com/dlc/1465360/SnowRunner/#browse

    So a vertical list of all the DLC's with the box art and the summary (maybe the website links along side)

    Then you can more easily see all the DLC without having to use the arrows to navigate the list.

    This can also help karma hunters to easily revise/update data on…

  18. A new game type "Expanded Bundle. I have run into a couple of situations now where a game bundles a couple of older games within it's new release. Right now they usually sit as a main game, since the new content falls under a new game, but adding this would allow us to link the bundled games additionally to reduce confusion.

  19. I often omit the endings of titles from the Storyline section to prevent posting spoilers, but I realize I'm not everyone. Generally I feel if people are just looking for more info on the game, why play it if you already know how it's going to turn out?

    I'd love to see a section you could add or highlight sections of a plot in Storyline that might be best hiddened for new users, rather than a full block of the field.

  20. Can you please add a posibillity to see in the database somehow visually games that you marked as "completed, voted, or played''

    Its gonna help to look trough games that you haven't tried yet.

    So - i go to the database, see all the games, but the games i completed i can se marked as 'completed' or somehow else - different color, or badged.

    i think a lot of people would appreciate it!
