If you'd like to join them, please go ahead and contribute now - MobyGames is only possible through our amazing users' contributions.
Additionally, we now display them at a higher quality (less compression and larger). We hope these changes will make MobyGames just that much better of a resource for the gaming community at large.
Other sites, YouTubers, bloggers and so on should always feel free to make use of these assets. Though we would greatly appreciate attribution back to MobyGames, so we can ensure our contributor base remains healthy and can grow. Without them, the 95,000+ game entries with countless credits, trivia and other information would simply not exist.
Not only is every piece of information here submitted by gamers, but it also goes through an approval process to ensure it's as accurate as possible. This is a huge amount of work, and we always need more contributors and approvers to help maintain (and improve!) our mission of being the most complete and accurate database of game information possible.
A huge thanks to the thousands of MobyGames contributors over the past 15 years who've helped us reach this point! Including each platform release, we are currently at 94,818 total game listings for 165 platforms. You can see the full breakdown by platform here.
To help mark the occasion, we're announcing our plan to remove the MobyGames watermark from all covers and screenshots. This has been in the works for a while and we'll soon be re-processing all 675,000+ screenshots and 270,000+ covers.

Tip Of The DaySometimes a developer receives a nickname during the development of a game. However when entering credits to the database we do not accept nicknames right into the person's name like John "Madman" Doe. Adding the nickname often results in a duplicate entry. What you can do, depending on how the credits are structured, is to add the nickname to the end of the person's name in parenthesis like John Doe (Madman). Additionally you can submit a name correction to the person's profile stating that John "Madman" Doe should be an aka. more tips

Being a fan of WWII-era when it comes to Call of Duty franchise, I thought Ghosts will be yet another modern, slightly futuristic shooter that may very much resemble Black Ops series. Luckily, it is not. It is so polished in so many new areas that it never gets boring nor repetitive through its campaign. From missions in space, or underwater combat, all the way to commandeering vehicles or rappelling down the skyscrapers, it is drop-dead beautiful and well thought of. Every level is action-paced and story is well done, although nothing we didn't see before (good soldier gone bad). Seeing how it was game for at the time next-gen consoles, its main competitor was Battlefield 4, which may have slight advantage in character graphics, but it lack in every other thing by comparison, especially in easy and fluid gameplay which this game radiates with. If CoD games are going in this way, I don't mind if we lose the well known historical setting of conflict.
