MobyGames News

4,000 C64 games - & goodbye to valued contributors!
Thanks to Karsa Orlong for pointing out that we've just shot past 4,000 games for the Commodore 64 - an impressive milestone! Looks like a lot of this is due to the powerhouse known as FatherJack going through missing games alphabetically - thanks to him and ALL who are contributing to the tally here!

Also, sad news - a couple of contributors have hung up their spurs. The artist sometimes known as joyvalley (and thf) has left the building, and as a #3 all-time contributor, we're incredibly appreciative for his work. The same is true for Top 10 all-time contributor MAT, who is also no longer hitting the submit button :/ Maybe we'll see them back in the future, but if not, we'd like to thank them for their tireless preservation of video game history!

[Final bonus news item - Kabushi has added the Coleco Adam & Camputers Lynx systems (!) as MobyGames platforms, yay as we try to complete our portfolio. You can add games, now and if you'd like to add tech specs, see this thread.]

New MobyGoal - 3,500 Amiga games!
Following our success in getting to 1500 arcade games, we're switching to our old friend the Commodore Amiga! Right now, we have 3107 games listed for it, and our new MobyGoal - displayed on the front page of the site prominently - is to get to 3500 titles in total. Ready, set.... document!

1,500 Arcade Games Documented
Just earlier this year we added the arcade platform, and as of today we've achieved the milestone of 1,500+ documented arcade games!

Every single entry (at minimum) includes description, release info, genres, publisher and developer. Many including screenshots, credits and trivia, with more being added all the time.

Thanks to all contributors and approvers for helping document these important pieces of game history.

Some notable entries include: Centipede, Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, Galaga, Gauntlet, Golden Axe, Gradius, Joust, Mortal Kombat, Ms. Pac-Man, Paperboy, Rampage, Smash T.V., The Simpsons, Space Invaders

FatherJack hits all-time yearly contribution record!
He's an animal! News out of the forums is that FatherJack has broken the single MobyGames contributor record for points earned in one year. As אולג小奥 notes, FatherJack has now "scored an unbelievable 43255 points, beating my record of 43191 in 2012". A lot of his recent MobyGames contributions have been filling out great swathes of missing info around Commodore 64, ZX-81 games and more, but he's also been super important to adding to our arcade collection, among others! Congrats again, Sir!

Tip Of The Day

Scan cover art in a high resolution and make sure that the scans are completely straight, for the covers themselves as well as the game discs. Scan the art directly against the glass, out of the keep case or jewel case, as this will give a sharper image. Of course, when you keep your games sealed or shrinkwrapped, we make an exception.   more tips
