    I've created a site with my brother in law that aims to be the IMDb of gaming. I'm looking for people to volunteer helping with adding and reviewing games. You can add games and review them easily though entering the text right on the site. If a game has features that HTF people would be interested in, like 480p or 5.1 sound, you can check those options when adding the game. Anyway, please check it out and let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions:

    VideoGameDB.com

    The site has only just gone live this week so that's why there isn't a lot of listings./reviews yet, and all of the screenshots/boxshots haven't been uploaded yet.

    Thanks
    Jake

    Nice site! Looks like this could become a great resource once more games are added.

    Nice site. I tried adding a few games but kept getting error messages. One thing you might want to add in the future is a cheat code database.

    What error messages were you seeing? We haven't done a ton of testing but haven't seen many errors when adding games.

    Thanks

    Hey Jake,

    What's the proper way to correct an entry? For example, Resident Evil is listed as being enhanced for 16x9 TVs when it is not.

    Ahh! I thought I was reviewing for NBA Live 2003 but I guess commented on it, twice, can you delete both of those.

    I reviewed NBA Live 2003, but just got an error. 20 minutes wasted [​IMG].

    Looks like a great idea. One thing you might want to try is using the console ROM checking tools (GoodNES etc) to generate game lists for older consoles. They'll have complete listings (as well as some stuff that nobody else would have heard of) that can at least give you a basis to work from.

    just a hint for you guys writing long reviews....type them in Word or notepad or something first....sometimes the internet messes up and it would suck to loose it all because of that.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Our intent was always a lot of facts, like the IMDb has for movies. Romier, I would love to add sales figures; any info you can send my way would be helpful.

    I'd also like to see gameplay information, such as how many players can play the game as well as Memory Card requirements.
