MobyGames News

Watermarks Begone
After a long week of reprocessing work, the entirety of our 271,573 box covers and 680,458 screenshots are watermark free!



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.

Moby Milestone: 50,000 Unique Games (April 2015)
We now have 50,000 unique games documented in our database! Every single game was hand entered by contributors and carefully verified by our approvers.



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.

MobyGames updates - March 2015!
Just a quick note on the front page to make sure everyone knows we've been updating MobyGames - our code as well as loads of new items - over the past few weeks!

In code and format additions, the Changelog is up to date, and includes a number of new game systems - including Windows Apps - and some notable security updates, as well as lots of affiliate link fixes - massive thanks to Nelio!

Elsewhere on contributions, we're rapidly approaching 50,000 unique games - more on that when we get there - and wanted to give some shoutouts to MAT and piltdown_man, who got to 80.000 points this year.

Also some great new milestones in points were reached by Sciere, ryanbus84, Thomas Petterson and more - and thanks to new contributors Kennyannydenny and Jennifer McMurray! Onward and upward...

In Memoriam: PolloDiablo (Astrid Beulink)
Just a short note that, tragically, former MobyGames contributor PolloDiablo, aka Astrid Beulink (who is ranked in the Top 60 all-time on Moby) lost her battle with cancer earlier this month, according to Adventure-Treff (German-language). Astrid - who posted in the Approver forum in November to update us on her progress - was very active in the adventure gaming community in particular as a beta tester and contributor. She will be missed by all of the communities she supported, including us here at Moby.

MobyGames Stats 2014
A new year. A new MobyGames stats graph!

Happy new year everybody!

Previous years: January 2014 January 2013 January 2012 January 2011 January 2010 January 2009



Each coloured shape in the graph represents a platform. Horizontal axis is time. The vertical axis represents the number of games released. So the height of a shape on a given point in time indicates the number of games released for that platform that year. The total height of the graph on a given point in time shows the total releases that year.

Of course the graph is only as complete as our database is.

Notable changes:
  • I've changed to a different colour scheme. It may be a bit harder on the eyes, but with some macro magic I tried to keep related platforms similar colours. For example all Microsoft platforms are shades of orange, Apple is green, Sony is blue, Nintendo is red, ZX is purple, and because there are only so many colours Commodore is a different shade of green. I also grouped brands with only one platform into similar colours based on the type of platform (console, handheld, pc, etc.)
  • I'm now using MobyGames data for Arcade games, this means that there are much fewer arcade games shown in the graph this year. Although we managed to document an impressive 1525 in the last year, that's nowhere near the 8000+ of arcade-history.com
  • 7004 new games compared to last year's graph, in spite of the huge decrease of Arcade games!
  • 159 different platforms are displayed in the graph!

Tip Of The Day

When adding game entries into the database, try to keep the description objective. Remember, the description is going to be the first text people read when they look up a game. Putting opinionated text like "Best game ever!", "Wonderful graphics and sound!", etc. doesn't describe the game at all and will result in getting the entry sent back to you for editing.   more tips
