The VGDB (The Video Game Database) is a crowd-sourced video game collection website. The website hosts video game content, much like a wiki, but without the paint and styling of a typical wiki based site. What’s unique about this project is that it’s largely crowd-sourced. You can make a free account, and add a game to the database without hoops or caveats. As more and more people do this, the site will be populated with more and more information which creates a feedback loop of people/page interactions. This in effect promotes site growth. This is a self-driven pet project that I made along with my brother, who wrote the code.
