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

  3. When trying to tag my stream as the game Sonic the Hedgehog (the 2006/2007 game for Xbox 360 and PS3), it is impossible to tag in any list or drop down, be it Twitch, Twitch Studio, OBS, Streamlabs, etc. I see that the game is on IGDB, so why doesn't the game ever show up?

  4. I want to contribute to the community by adding qualified category images from IGDB to Twitch. Particularly for the games Dead or Alive 2 and Dead or Alive 3.

  6. A user wanted to sort the release dates of platform versions by date and get the name of the version. But could not since platform-version-release-dates field platform_version is missing.

    Example query:

    https://api.igdb.com/v4/platform_version_release_dates

    fields *, platform_version.name; sort date desc; limit 500;

    Expected: A sorted list of platform version release dates and the name of the platform version name

    Actual: A sorted list of platform version release dates without the platform version data.

  7. As I was in the process of adding a game to the database, I was shown a list of fields into which I could enter URLs to that game's pages on various stores (Steam, GOG, Epic, etc.) but there was no URL field for the Microsoft Store. Why? The Microsoft Store has to be one of the most popular digital game sources. When IGDB adds a field for a Microsoft Store URL, I will edit the game's entry on IGDB to add a link to that game's Microsoft Store page.

    Heya! Thanks for the suggestion, definitely a good one.

    As a matter of fact we have plans this year to introduce stores, and possibly linking them to “Platforms”. You are correct that windows, XOne, X360 etc.. all have different stores so they would need separate implementation.

    Stay tuned!

  9. I think one of the sections that need the most contribution, especially in terms of time, is the credits. Having to type each name and title into the given boxes takes quite a lot of time and can be a deterrent.

    Since for most games the information is already out there, being able to copy and paste the information into a standard format (maybe word, excel etc.) and then import that into IGDB would really help.

    Also, being able to edit them even after the changes have been accepted so people can add different languages/voice actors.

    Might also be worth…

  11. This is only a minor pet-peeve and super conditional, but there are times when Titles with the same name are released in the same year. This makes it fairly difficult to differentiate titles from each other when you are adding titles into various lists in the Edit menus. (Bundled Games, Versions, etc.) Most of the time you will see a year of the release in these menus, but there are examples of different versions released in the same year.

    I will sometimes add the platform to the title of a game to help this, but this isn't the cleanest look…

  12. Currently, there are ratings displayed in "Rated" list (https://www.igdb.com/users/<username>/lists/rated). However, they are written in too small font. Originally I wanted to suggest to display ratings, because I didn't notice them at all. The main thing someone would go to this list is to see what ratings user gave to certain games. So, it would be better if those ratings were displayed in bigger font and maybe not in grey color.

    Hey! yes that’s a good point. The automated lists (Want/Playing/Played/Rated/Reviewed) are all very old and in need of a big revamp.
    Displaying the rating with our star rating for example would be indeed better suited than a grey number.

    While Lists feature upgrade is definitely something we want to do, it’s not currently in our short term roadmap unfortunately. We’ll keep the community in the loop as soon as we tackle that!

    Thanks!

  13. For games and platforms there could be an icon imagem, of small size, which could be used as a visualization flair on the website and also as a data point for the API, as applications could use them to their UIs.

  14. On a number of company pages, the game list does not appear, and games associated with the company can only be viewed within the timeline element (which does not display games without a release date, and is slow to reflect updates). This issue seems prevalent among company pages with relatively few games, although that might not be the direct cause.

    Examples:
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/cecile-richard
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/d3t-limited
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/kitty-horrorshow
    https://www.igdb.com/companies/michael-lutz

    Heya! We’re currently doing large changes around the consistency of data between our site and API. These out of sync issues should be resolved very soon, and we will be going back to look at individual cases such as these games afterwards if there are still edge cases.
    If you spot any more feel free to add them in the comments as it could be helpful.

    Thanks a lot and apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime!

  16. Not a fan personally, but it might be worth documenting with a simple Yes/No Checkbox.

    Ex. Jak & Daxter Collection PS3, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, etc.

  17. At times editors can realize an important bit of information was missed or forgotten after selecting Update Game. If the editor selects Edit again before their previous update has been approved. Several parts of the update appear to inconsistently display the recently entered data, while others do not. Many of these edits also will not change, even if re-edited prior to an Approval being confirmed by Admins.

    Examples:
    - Franchises do not save
    - Removing Platforms from various Release Dates, Companies and Age Ratings do not save
    - Removed Companies continue to display
    - Previously added Multiplayer Modes do not…

  19. 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…

  20. There's already a request for logos and I would like to add this request for icons, like the ones used for the game shortcuts.
    It is common for computer games to have them, and some other platforms have icons of the games in some places (like on the memory card management system).
