Community based MetaData

Postby Sayajiin » Fri Apr 14, 2017 1:11 pm

Hey guys,

Metadata would be I think a first in the front end. Best way to browse game, when you have thousand of them. Take for exemple Steam store. You can write 2 player adventure and get all the 2 player adventure game. People could populate those meta data on their personal game then it would be shared with other user.

Thanks !

Do you agree to rename this topic as "Community Based Metadata" ?

That's a great idea. Could we not start with another website's database and just add to that maybe? LIke, taking another person's site and copying it as a baseline which we could then contribute to make our own?

First we need a list of what metadata should we store.

My list is:

    Year
    Genre
    Developer
    Publisher
    Players (1, 2, 4)
    Region (us, jp, etc)
    Release (homebrew, bootleg, official).
