MobyQuestion - what was the first game you loved?
Every now and again, we're going to ask a freeform question on the MobyGames front page - because we want to know more about our valued users!

This question's simple: what is the first game you ever remember playing and enjoying? I'll kick it off - for me, Matthew Smith's Manic Miner on ZX Spectrum is the first game I really recall genuinely loving. Attack Of The Mutant Telephones! Wacky Amoebatrons! So good... how about y'all?

MobyGames Stats 2015
Traditions! For the 7th year in a row I present to you the yearly stats graph!

Previous editions:
January 2015 - 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.

All data taken from MobyGames. Of course the graph is only as complete as our database is.

Some interesting tidbits:
  • In the 2009 graph the peak in the late 80s was higher than the late 00s peak. In the 2010 graph they were roughly equal in height. Now the latter peak is in a whole different league. Can we get it double the size next year?

  • Probably the best populated newly added (this year) platform is Windows Apps, barely visible as an orange smudge below the Wii U.

  • There are actually quite some PS4 and XBone games, but the verticality in that part of the graph makes it look worse than it is. The Game Boy (noted as GB on the graph) and FM Towns suffer a similar faith.

  • Our number of "last year" titles is historically quite low over all the years. Last year's graph was excellent with 2915 titles of 2014 present. This year is not so bad either with 2583 titles of 2015 present.

Site Updates (Dec 27th)
There have been a few updates, since our last announcement. The biggest change is that we've fully rebuilt our search index, which should be especially helpful for users entering credits. This is a followup to NĂ©lio's prior work on search, so thanks to him for the improvement.

A more complete listing of the changes:
  • Allow https URLs in submissions
  • Fixed reported issues with company pages
  • Fixed display of certain informational pages
  • Added link to critic review browser on games' review subpages
  • Display date on critic reviews
  • Fixed broken link when adding games to user Have Lists
  • Added extra character mappings for search and re-indexed
  • Make forum posts reject empty subjects, plus a few other fixes
  • Admin and approver fixes
Going forward, we'll try to keep the changelog up to date, so watch that page for changes as they happen.

Happy Holidays to you all!
We just wanted to wish all MobyGames readers, contributors, funders, and helpers a very, very Merry Christmas - and a Happy New Year to come!

For anyone paying attention, we already have 49 contributors with at least 1000 MobyPoints in 2015, compared to just 39 in 2013 (and 53 in 2014!) - so it looks to have been another super-productive year for all of you in documenting credits, screenshots, and games from throughout video game history. Roll on 2016!

Tip Of The Day

Cruisin' for Contribution Points, Volume Two: If you own a game that doesn't have screenshots in MobyGames, take a few -- they're worth 2 points each. Even if a game already has screenshots, you can still get your screenshots accepted if they are better than what we have on file. What's better than what we have? Examples include shots that have actual gameplay in them instead of just an intro cinematic; shots that don't give the ending of the game away; shots that are encoded properly (320x200 games saved as 4/16/256-color GIF instead of a 640x400 JPG). The last section of the FAQ has some pointers on taking screenshots.   more tips
