MobyGames News

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!

Happy holidays - new records, new platforms!
Well, it's that holiday time of the year, and we're finishing up with a bang! Two things, this time! First, as the ever-delightful Karsa Orlong points out in a PM to me: "New records: - the first four top contributors (FatherJack, Sciere, Karsa Orlong, 666gonzo666) beat their annual records with FatherJack setting the all time year to year record - Sciere set a new annual record of approvals (beating my 60k approvals from 2013), what is the proof, together with contributions points record, of his alien deep space cybernetic origin!"

Second, Kabushi continues to add new platforms, and if hyou follow this forum thread, you can see them being piled up in _real-time_, which is awesome. Just added is the Bally Astrocade, among a number of others. Finally, once again - thanks to EVERYONE who makes MobyGames' continued success possible - and have a wonderful Xmas & New Year!

Tip Of The Day

When assigning companies in release info items, make sure to spell the company name correctly. New companies are added every day, but most of them are already listed on the site. When multiple possibilities appear in the dropdown list, look up the differences between the names in the company profile pages. Some companies have separate divisions for developing, publishing, distributing, administration, localization or porting, often depending on the region. This is usually described in the company overview. Also, some names are used for specific timeframes - select the name that fits.   more tips
