So, if you go check out the MobyGames database stats page, you'll see that we reached an important milestone - 300,000 games documented in the MobyGames database!
Congrats to everyone who helped us get there - and with a good deal of accuracy and checking along the way! (Also, in the comments for this post, maybe people can point out other neat user milestones achieved recently!)
This is an update to the 200,000 game announcement which happened in May of 2019.
Well, that number will slow down as my life gets busier again during this year. :P I'm pleased to say that I now have a higher number of points awarded from credits than new games, though. I'm nearly at 500 credits submitted and will probably cross that milestone by the end of next week. I plan to continue focusing on credits submissions and approvals in the future, probably mostly untranslated Japanese ones as there are a lower number of people who can do those.
Well done to everyone who's helped make 300,000 games documented a reality, especially the people who take time to dig into those lost, forgotten alcoves of the internet to unearth and describe the treasures within. I see most of the people in the top 20 doing great work on a daily basis: Patrick and Alaka with the lost Xbox 360 indie games, Plok and Rik with the thorough approvals, Kamikaze with the modern console games, and Sciere with the hefty credits submissions, to name a few. Keep up the great work, everyone! Here's to the next... 400,000? 500,000? I'm sure we'll be there before we know it!
I'll brag a bit. Finally reached a score of 100,000 and I'm darn close to hitting my goal of adding 1000 TRS-80 CoCo games. Unfortunately, I've really had to scrape the bottom of the barrel to get there. In the next 1 - 2 months, we'll have that system well documented, and I'll have to decide what to do next.
The Apple II, TRS-80, and TRS-80 CoCo sections look pretty good now.

You deserve to brag m8, with "obscure" (at least to me :P) console games additions to reach 100K, impressive stats
Several PC titles for which only his magazine covermounts (i.e. not actual boxes) are pending - which often include front pages of magazines themselves, for which common practice hasn't been clear on the site.
That said, more approver eyes need to be set on the PC queue, it's getting unbearable.
I'd say that a magazine cover is quite clearly not a game cover, even if the game came with the magazine. Only the cover of the disk and the disk itself would count, and that's assuming that it was a disk just for the game, as if it'd also include some other things like demos for other games or tools or what not I'd have questions even about that.
