    Here's a idea on how to handle collisions. I'll use Ixion as an example.

    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Ixion would bring up every matching game, not just the first one in the IGDB database. Live Channels, Videos, etc would show all matching games combined.

    You'd list each matching game, with a Follow button for each one. If you want to limit the list of Live Channels, Videos, etc to a specific game a new drop down could be added for that on the page someplace. Or perhaps that'd just redirect you to a page such as:

    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Ixion/40345
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Ixion/152258

    Where only the one specific game's info would appear, with the Follow button, Live Channels, Videos, etc only being for this one specific game. Those are the IGDB ID #s.

    This way all existing pretty URLs will remain working, but you can dial down into the correct specific game you want to stream or watch or subscribe to.

    As it stands when Ixion releases tomorrow, streamers will be forced into the category for a typing game from 1980 that happened to have the same name.

    How can this still be broken after 18 months? Twitch is primarily a video game streaming platform. Not being able to choose the correct game you are streaming or want to follow via the Categories list should be a priority fix.
