  1. Clicking Game Pic takes you to its wikipedia page

    I was thinking if you click on a games picture it would direct you in a new tab/window to that games Wikipedia page. Also, perhaps allow people to add the hyperlink themselves if its missing from that game's page, and of course the log or something at bottom of screen should update stating who made the change, that way everyone knows who contributed as a idea.

    • Include more information when you click on a title

      Such as developer, publisher, platform, genre, etc. similar to the amount of information you get when you wiki a game.

      • Diary entries chronologically

        I would love a diary like the one for movies on letterboxd.com,, where you can just rate the last game you played and it will put a diary entry with when you played it (maybe even the time period you played it). At the end of the year you can review the year and see which game was your favourite.

        This site has enormous potential as it resembles letterboxd which works so well for movies! Would love a site like that for games which also is all about style.

        • Endless scrolling.

          Clicking on numbers is old school. I just want to be able to scroll. Much faster and gives me motivation to go further down in history.

          • Add Japanese support

            Both Japanese UI text, and Japanese games. Connecting with other English-speaking gamers playing American games is not a problem. Being able to discuss Japanese games (not American ports, which often have changes, in addition to different language) would make this very valuable for me.

            • Finished, unfinished and "never able to finish" status

              There are games that don't have a definite endgoal, and feel weird to mark as finished, like Minecraft, The Sims, Total War, etc. There should be a status for this kind of game. Backloggery enables users to mark these games as "Null", for example.

              • Allow importing of games from online profiles, like steam.

                Make it easy to add a lot of games to your profile by allowing profile importing.

                • Your lists should be accessible from your profile page.

                  Similar to goodreads, all your lists/shelves should be visible and accessible from your profile page. This way visiting users, even from non-members, can see how I've chosen to organize my games.

                  • Add Year Played

                    It would be nice to be able to add "old" games played by year or easily add previous games without the activity feed looking like I just played it.

                    • Recommendation System

                      It would be cool if there was a feature where based on the rating that you gave certain games, Dpadd could recommend games that were similar (which would be determined by genres and the ratings people gave on those games and what they played) - that way you always could find a game to check out, explore, and play!

                      • Have a Dpadd Score that is a calculated score across all networks (Xbox, PS, Steam etc)

                        If you could work out a formula that takes your gamerscore, steam badges etc and create a Dpadd score.

                        The Dpadd score can also be increased by posting and reviewing at Dpadd.

                                    - Top x games in category (FPS, RPG, etc)
                                    - Chronilogical games not rated or marked as 'no thanks'

                                        As you know I love Dpadd, it is a wonderful platform. But I think it would attract even more people if it was localized. Are there possibilities for this? I wouldn't mind doing it English to Dutch (not German, my German sucks. :P)
