Computer games are already rather well catalogued, I think (Mobygames and friends). Tabletop games, a bit less so (at least one site exists, but I forgot its name). I don’t know of an online database for „traditional“ children’s games.
The nearest thing is http://www.wikitree.com/ which in case you don’t know is attempting to create a single family tree, and is completely free to use ecetera. But the code is not opensourced, there are restrictions on what data you can download and there is not much of a developer community.
Thanks for that, had a little play with it!
Some things the MB userbase (or should I say developerbase?) would do better at first glance (their locations are open-text fields?) but beggars can’t be choosers.
Weird one, but was thinking about how cool an ApparelBrainz would be today.
Just because I see a lot of cool designs (including band shirts) out there, and a lot are limited and hard to find later (even pics of them)
That’s all I’m gonna say. There’s a lot of visual media out there, in ever-increasing amounts, and often transient in nature… but it’d be pretty fantastic to have a way to permanently track metadata and relational data for them, especially illustrations and artwork. Some integrated feature to hash and uniquely identify roughly identical images, ala AcoustID, would of course be swell as well.
another idea from a BookBrainz discussion about photo books, ArtBrainz. could be similar to ImageBrainz above, but I could see this name more easily implying stuff like sculpture, frescoes, and other high art
(that’s not to say the name determines the scope, with many non-music recordings in MusicBrainz and stuff like newspapers, magazines, and research papers in BookBrainz)
I also think I prefer the abbreviation for ArtBrainz (AB) better than ImageBrainz (IB). granted, there might be a conflict with the now-defunct AcousticBrainz…
