  1. It seems rather common that users want to post the release dates and other info into the original releases of titles, such as Ports, Bundles, Remakes and Remasters, when these points have already been documented in the respective entries.

    While you will almost certainly never fully eliminate this, I feel a large portion of it has to do with people not realizing the entries exist, and often need to scroll down to areas they may not frequent as often to notice the options exist.

    I would suggest possibly moving these sections for Ports, Remakes, Bundles, etc. into the same area…

  2. There is a platform missing that I would like to be able to register games for - the Commodore MAX Machine which was released exclusively in Japan in 1982.

  3. These types of trailers are common for fighting games and even games like Overwatch had them back in the day.

  4. Maybe this is just me, but I almost always miss something when I edit, update or submit a New Game, and never see it until I see the full list of changes on the Pending Submission page.

    It might help to have an "Are you sure?" page between Previewing all Changes and Submit/Update.

    There’s a good suggestion here, although it could also add some friction. In particular for users doing a lot of edits in a row.

    Adding a page between would add extra pages and clicks, making the contribution flow slower.

    I would picture more like having a recap visible at all times through in the sidebar maybe, somewhat like an online store shopping cart (-Cover, Keywords X2, Genre, Screenshots X5 etc..).

  5. Hi,
    recently a super-admin had to merge two games wich actually was the same game, which just changed name and modality meantime.

    In the fact I'm talking about Pagan Online (Action-RPG MMO) which became Pagan Absent Gods (Action-RPG Single Player).

    While before they were registered as two different games, with two different pages, now they got merged as single page on Pagan Online's page (renaming the game), marking Pagan Absent Gods' old page as dupicate.

    The consequences of the merging, anyway, are doubtful, because:

    Hey!
    Yes good suggestion! We do have plans for revisiting our Lust feature, including the default lists. We can definitely take this in consideration once we return to this.

    Thanks!

  8. 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.

  9. There are times some users confuse the general name of "Mobile" to include iOS, Android and other modern mobile platforms.

    It might be prudent to rename this to Legacy Mobile, JAVA, WAP, or other name to help differentiate it form those common names.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

    Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly

    - Inaccurate count of 3 reviews on Game Page, but 2 reviews listed on Critic Reviews breakdown page.

  16. 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!

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!
