Submitting a Video Game

 

Video Games can be added the same way traditional movies and television series are, via the New Title Form and selecting the “Video Game” type.

Note that in order to be accepted, the title should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Be of general public interest
  • Available to the public on a widely recognized platform (i.e. PC, console, arcade, etc).

 If your title adheres to these guidelines, use the New Title Form to get started.

 

Episodic Video Games 

Episodic Videogames, such as those developed by Telltale Games, do not fit neatly into any of our existing title types.

In order to avoid duplication of credits we would prefer to list the collected episodes of a season as a single title i.e. The Walking Dead: The Game - Season 1.

Individual episode titles should be submitted as Alternate Titles with the attribute (videogame episode) to distinguish them - for example:


Title
The Walking Dead: The Game - Season 1 

Alternate titles:
The Walking Dead: The Game - Season 1. Episode 1: A New Day
The Walking Dead: The Game - Season 1. Episode 2: Starved for Help 
etc

Individual release dates of these episodes should be listed in a similar fashion, again distinguishing between them with attribute for each episode - in this case (videogame episode 1), (videogame episode 2) etc. 


Video Game Expansion Packs
Video Game Expansion packs should be treated in one of two ways depending on their original release.
 
If the expansion pack requires the original game in order to play the additional content then it should be considered as part of the existing Video Game title.
 
In these cases the title AKA (expansion title) should be added to the existing title page i.e. "Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker" on Mass Effect 2 (2010) (VG) 

If the expansion pack can be played without owning the original game then it should be added as a standalone Video Game title.
