Add developer Gravity-i Ltd
I don't think they're the same as Gravity Co. and Gravity Interactive which has been causing confusion. They have different logos and have been credited with different games. Also, maybe remove Gravity-i from Publisher list.

General / Re: Preffering Old Games Vs Current Generation Games
« on: March 16, 2019, 02:35:21 pm »
Long ago I made the decision not to move on to the current generation of consoles. Since I already have a great collection of good and unusual games, I didn’t see the point. For better graphics… so what? For better story telling… not really. Besides, it’ll take the rest of my life to play through my collection. However, if VR technology takes a big leap forward, that might pique my interest.

Site Feedback / My Genre Primer for Some Folks
« on: March 14, 2019, 08:56:18 pm »
The Primary (Root) Video Game Genres:

Action: Games which focus on and require player skill and reflexes to play.

Action Adventure: Games with elements of both action (reflex, timing, button-mashing) and adventure (puzzle-solving, inventory management) games - a hybrid of the Action and Adventure categories. (A GROSS EXCLUSION BY THIS SITE)

Adventure: Games that require primarily logic and problem-solving to complete in the context of a narrative, with little (if any) action game mechanics.

Miscellaneous: Games that don't fit into any other categories or are an un-categorizable
 mix, including board games, collections, and applications.

Puzzle: Games that focus on the player's logical and thinking skills, often solving problems outside of the context of a narrative.

Racing: Games that focus on controlling a vehicle or other avatar in a race against a time limit or other vehicles/avatars.

Role-Playing: Games that put the player in the role of a customizable hero (or heroes) to complete goals or quests.

Simulation: Games that put the player in the role of controlling a virtual object - a ship, a plane, or even a life.

Sports: Games that simulate real or imagined sporting competitions.

Strategy: Games that focus on careful and skillful thinking and planning in order to achieve victory, and the turn-based or real-time action scales from world domination to squad-based tactics.

I know this is nitpicking, but the proper name of Titus’ development arm is Titus Interactive Studios and NOT Titus Software (publishing name).

I work off a list of more than 250 videogame and DVD/Blu-Ray/UMD publisher UPC identifiers.

Could you post the video game portion of the list so others could use it as well? Maybe we could get it stickied.

I'm going to do that when I get time.

There seems to have never been any discussion on who a publisher is, at least in this forum. I do not think we need to be worrying about who the UPC belongs to, since it can be difficult to know all of them. We do not have a reference list to refer to. We do not handle distributors at all, and likely all games have a distributor even if they don't have a logo or mention on the box.

For this one tho, it seems clear that Electronic Arts is the publisher and Destination Software is the distributor and not a publisher.

There is always the option of creating a Publisher record with two companies on it, as has been done in the past.

The majority of video game publishers distribute their own games. I work off a list of more than 250 videogame and DVD/Blu-Ray/UMD publisher UPC identifiers. This makes it easier for me to spot and correct errors on VGCollect and GameFAQs.
