Hey! Do you mean something entirely different from the default Rated list? On this default list we do display the user ratings. You're suggesting to add the same to custom list?
This could be interesting yes :)
I’ve discussed this with one of our engineers. it’s definitely doable and a ticket was created in our backlog for it. We don’t have an ETA for it yet but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we get around to it :)
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 :)
Oh yes absolutely this is a big one we’ve been wanting to do. We have a full ‘archive’ solution planned that is awaiting engineering work.
We should be starting in this fairly soon.

Update: We are unfortunately blocked at the time with a backend impediment preventing us from removing platforms. We’ll be back on track asap!
Update on this, we identified one possible issue which is that unlike PC stores, most console links are region specific.
So we’re investigating how we could either generalised them or whether we’d introduce this when we tackle localization of IGDB.
Indeed there is a lot of value in such a feature to help differentiating different types of versions and editions.
We’re in early phase of looking into this, it’s absolutely something we need and want to have, but it’s also a bit of a complicated data structure with a lot of exceptions and edge cases, so we want to do it the right way.
We’ll likely run it by you Keepers once we figure out something ;)
Hey! yes this is a great suggestion, we’ve definitely been wanting to expand our Game Media coverage with logos.
Especially for PressKits for example.
