RAWG

The IMDb of video games 🎮 👾

4.5/5
About

There is no place on the Internet where one can manage all their games in one library, track stats, and discover what to play next. RAWG.io solves these problems with a community-driven database of game creators and games across all stores and platforms. Now RAWG has over 52,000 games in its database and over 15,000 game creators.

Is the primary purpose as a recommendation engine? Is it a reviews aggregator? Is it a "do everything thats already being done elsewhere, but do it in one place" website? What does RAWG do that Steam/Metacritic/Gamerankings/gaming websites don't already do? I guess I don't see the value to spending hours making a unified list of all the games that I already own and that I already know that I own, when having that final list doesnt seem to provide any new utility.

Pros:

The UI is nice enough

Cons:

I dont understand why I need or should want this

Jason, thanks a lot for the feedback. Usually users don't need to create list of their games manually, you just need to add your accounts name to sync and you will automatically get a full list of your games from all platforms and devices. If you don't need such function, so we just hope that at some time you will use RAWG as a unified database, to get full info about game without the need to visiting dozens of "Steam/Metacritic/Gamerankings/gaming websites" to get it.

Nothing more to tell: the idea to have some place where your games info is stored and all games info is stored is great. Last time I checked, I found no use of it for me.

Pros:

Potentially valueable DB.

Cons:

No obvious value ATM.

Hi, Konstantin, thanks for the feedback. We released new version few days ago, hope you will find it more useful.

I just stumbled over this website and after a few minutes already recommended it to a friend. Looks very promising, especially the "development team"-section is something I'm interested in. This section and the knowledge about who wrote and created games is most often overlooked

Pros:

- Filter Options

- Development Team Section

- Cross Platforms

- Deep Data Pool

Cons:

- So far, none

Thanks for the gread feedback and recommendations. Yes, game creators should get all the credit for making the content we love. This is something we are definitely going to be focused on.

this idea was fresh 10 years ago, when it was successfully done and profited off of. This is redundant at this point

Pros:

none

Cons:

already been done

Andrew, thanks for the critics, but you will help us much more, if you will add some examples of successful competitors we have missed.
