MobyGames

Recommended Posts

In the area under the game cover art there are links to Wikipedia, SteamDB, Wine... and other stuff. I recommend to add MobyGames there too, since Wikipedia is a general online encyclopedia and MobyGame is basically an online encyclopedia for video games and people often already add the links to it in the general info section. Many old obscure and less known games don't have a Wikipedia page, but I have yet to find an old game without a MobyGames page.

MobyGames is still being updated. If you go to the "Updates" menu at the top of MobyGames you'll find links for pages such as New Games and Game Updates.

New games show up more quickly on PCGamingWiki because of a difference in approach: PCGamingWiki has VetleBot automatically adding anything released on Steam whereas on MobyGames any crawled game data has to be approved before it shows up for regular visitors.

In terms of linking to other game websites - my preference for the health of PCGamingWiki project, is to have mutual linking with other sites. This has immense SEO benefits. For example we have a system for WSGF-PCGamingWiki article links, and also SteamDB and IsThereAnyDeal etc.

MobyGames seems like a good place to link to - but before we do anything I'd like to get in touch with the admin and see if there's anything we can do as a partnership.

Does anyone have the contact details for the current admin? Best to get in touch via.. Discord, or Twitter?

MobyGames have declined my proposal of mutual linking - not citing any reasons.

I don't really see much value in linking to them, they don't really provide any useful information for PC gamers - Wikipedia has much more useful information. I would prefer to dedicate resources to more compatible websites, e.g. I was looking at ProtonDB.
