If you've put together a fan site dedicated to a particular game and that game isn't in the database, feel free to add it!
But even if the game has already been added, you can still contribute your website's URL by viewing the game's rap
sheet, then clicking Contribute. After it's approved, it will show up as a Related Website.
When adding credits that contain a "Jr." (like 'Robert D. Leonard, Jr.'), don't include the comma. If you do, it gets split up into 'Robert D. Leonard' and 'Jr.' as two different people. Simply omit the comma before the Jr. and it will get added correctly.
Entering a game and don't know what to enter in a particular field or checkbox?
Aren't sure what the exact system requirements are for a game?
Just leave it blank--we'll take care of it. :-)
Don't like a description we have on file for a game or feel that you can add more to it? Revise it! From the game's page just click the "edit description" link at the end of the description and you'll be able to revise the description and get credit for it. (Just make sure to keep it objective!)
To see the total number of games in the database, click the word "Database Stats" in the left frame on the main page. The resulting screen will have the number of games next to the word "Games".
Company information sheets usually contain a reference to their home page, but can sometimes contain other links as
well. See Sierra On-Line, Inc.
for an example.
Got any suggestions? Is there something you love--or hate--about MobyGames? Let us know!
Our motto? Quality over quantity. We'd rather have missing information than wrong information, so if you're not completely sure of a fact or detail, just leave it blank and we'll take care of it (if it needs taking care of).
If you're having trouble determining the exact year a game was published, check the title screen of the game, then the manual, then the fine print on the box. If those are unavailable, look at the dates of the files themselves. When all else fails, crack open a hex editor and start looking through the game code -- programmers usually jam copyright strings and other useful information in the game executable.
Before adding a game entry, check to see if it's in the database first. Doing so will save you the frustration of having the redundant entry rejected.
