Our end credits is one of the oldest feature we have on the site and indeed could use some additional improvements.
Unfortunately this isn’t currently planned to revisit it in the short term.
We do however intend to explore ways to differentiate game developers from regular users which could also help such use cases.

Hey! Thanks for the suggestion, there’s some good opportunity there indeed.
We have plans (and needs) to redo how we handle companies, but we also need to rethink how Follows are handled. Right now even follows on game page are underused in terms of potential.
Definitely to be put in consideration when we revisit Companies. Thanks!

That is absolutely correct, and the right way to have in the long term.
It is however a very complex and time consuming engineering project, and has been postponed due to priority and need to have basis.
That we’ll eventually tackle it is likely, but not in the near future.

Hey! we had a chat about this internally and landed on the fact it could become problematic, so we wanted to double check your suggestion in more details.
How would we define the order within a series? As this could be seen either as chronologically by release, or by story.
For example, MGS3 being the first one in the story, yet the 3rd one by release date. This could prove very divisive either way.
Another issue that could be problematic are differences in the order by region. Final Fantasy is an infamous case, where FFVI was released as FFIII in North America for example.
Was this the sort of approach you had in mind with such a feature? Let us know :)

This is a good suggestion thank you! This has been discussed a couple of times in the past. We can’t promise any ETA on such a feature but it would be interesting to investigate.
Our main concerns so far would be what can be included is random: should it have filters, should it be games on all platforms or only selected ones, all age ratings etc..
If you have more ideas or specifics that always helps, we’ll leave this ticket open meanwhile!

I think it should have filters on platform, genre, co-op etc. basically anything that can help soeone find a new game to play.
My use case would be just finishing a game and looking for something similar. A new co-op game with a friend, a psone era jrpg... something that I might look for that I don't think is captured on the site yet is art-style or playtime.
Also, if these are filters you select, people that want a truly random game can obviously just not select anything.

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

So, we actually used to have Tool Tips on our game edits, specifically for the Franchise and Series field.
This feature broke at some point during our infrastructure migration post-acquisition, and disabled it.
Now, we absolutely would like to bring this back indeed, and expand to more fields. As we are not constantly adding new data points and are putting a big focus right now on our contribution tools this is an excellent suggestion.
We’ll take a look at the best places to implement them!

If I am going back to play a series I didn't play when the games were released I might do it chronologically. Each series' wiki will probably have a timeline that can be found but I still think its useful information that can be held here.
Because the site already has a franchise page that can be sorted by release date, maybe there could be a data field for the games chronology that could then be sorted in the franchise page. I guess with games that don't have dates like Zelda a numerical value would have to be put in front of the 'era' for it to be sorted.
