    I agree. Exercise should be a theme, instead of or in addition to a genre.

    For example, Just Dance 2021 (https://www.igdb.com/games/just-dance-2021) is primarily a dancing game, and not all of the routines are intended to be 'exercise' routines; some of them are slower, easier, and less physically intense than others. However, because *some* physical exercise is involved, even in the slower routines, and also because some of the faster, more intense routines are designed with exercise in mind, I think that this game deserves to be assigned the theme 'exercise'. Its genres are--or should be--dance, music, and rhythm.

    Another example: Kung Fu for Kinect (https://www.igdb.com/games/kung-fu-for-kinect) is primarily a fighting game, and it looks like fighting games like Street Fighter, so it belongs in the 'fighting' genre, but because players control the on-screen character by moving their bodies--using Kinect--physical exercise is a by-product of playing the game. The developers intended that to be the case, since the game's trailer mentions getting "seriously fit". So, I'm suggesting that this game has exercise as a theme. Its genre is fighting.

    We can discuss whether 'exercise' should be a genre as well as a theme. Right now, I'm only suggesting that there are games that primarily belong to other genres (such as fighting) and that have exercise as a smaller component, within the boundaries of those other genres.

    Hey Barry!
    Yes absolutely this is planned. While External Games and External Websites are separate they are closely related and may tackle them together.

    For External Games this will be a big focus for us going forward.
    Stay tuned!

    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!

    @IGDB, I'm puzzled as to why you would say that Xbox One and Windows have separate stores. They have the same store. It's a unified store, and it is called the Microsoft Store. It even includes games for other Microsoft platforms, such as Windows Phone. Some of the games run on more than one device type, such as PC and phone, PC and Xbox One, or all three.

    The U.S. version: www.microsoft.com/en-us/p

    Heck, even some Xbox 360 and original Xbox games are there as well. The only Xbox 360 and original Xbox games that aren't in it, are ones that haven't been made compatible with Xbox One. I repeat, then, that it is a *unified* store.

    Xbox 360 games that don't run on Xbox One are available, along with all other Xbox 360 games, at a separate store: marketplace.xbox.com.

    I suppose that you will find all of that out if you implement the feature that you described, and discover that the digital store for Xbox One games is also the built-in digital store on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.

    The game that I added to IGDB is BallStrike. Here is its IGDB page: https://www.igdb.com/games/ballstrike. Here is its Microsoft Store page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/ballstrike/

    Also, it should be "Microsoft Store", not "Windows Store", because the Microsoft Store includes not just Windows PC games, but also Xbox One games, and Xbox 360 games that run on Xbox One via backwards compatibility.
