MobyGames News

Highlighting our new(ish) 'dedicated console' section!


Earlier this year, MobyGames launched a 'dedicated console' platform, recognizing that there's a lot of 'many games in one' TV games out there that don't have a central place to get documented.

Thus far contributors have added everything from the NES Classic to bizarre official Mega Drive x guitar games, and lots more besides. There's even a dedicated Tic-Tac-Toe machine from 1956 in the mix somewhere - and lots of Pong-like machines, of course.

Thanks to all MobyGames contributors that helped so far - and yes, we have a 'dedicated handheld' section too, for all you Game & Watch fans.

New milestones - 400k cover art, 250k promo art!
As we continue to truck through the summer, just a note that we've reached some new MobyGames milestones in terms of contributions.

Sure, we're over 136,000 games on the DB, but the new milestones of note are that we've made it to 400,000 pieces of cover art, and 250,000 pieces of promotional art. Thanks to ALL MobyGames contributors who've made that happen. (For comparison, only 4 years ago we had 72,000 games, 226,000 pieces of cover art, and 0 pieces of promo art!) Great work...

Reminder: our Discord community is up and running!
Just a reminder that we have a fairly active Discord community for MobyGames with a number of contributors stopping in and chatting. If you're a regular contributor - or are just thinking about starting - then we recommend you come and check it out!

New iPhone MobyGoal; new MobyPoints rewards for descriptions!
Two small updates: firstly, we've updated the MobyGoal to be 4,500 iPhone games, because we made it to 4,000 so easily! (Sorry to those who helped us get there - it's just a bit further to this new goal :P)

Secondly, after some notes on the rewards for ad blurbs vs. descriptions, all handwritten descriptions are now worth 4 MobyPoints on the website (so 3 more points than previously). Hope this'll help encourage.. there may also be an additional modifier for complexity in the future.

2017 - a fine year for adding games on MobyGames so far!


We just wanted to highlight the above graph, for which the red bar is the number of games - of any era - added on MobyGames by users since 2012. So 2017's total additions include games from 1981, 2012, and even 2017! (Side note: the green bar is number of times games have been set to 'pending', so includes 2 entries for anything that needed to be set to WIP.)

Current MobyGames management took over the site at the end of 2013, following an aborted site redesign. We're proud of the work you've done with us to keep up with what is an increasingly crowded game market, and fill in a lot of older holes in our database! (And there's four and a half months to go, so expect 2017's red bar to go a lot higher by year's end.)

Tip Of The Day

If the description of a game is too vague or confusing, try checking the game's Advertising Blurb to see the original advertising copy, sometimes directly from the game's box or website. (Hey, we don't type 'em in for nothin'! ;-)   more tips
