Is there a videogame database that can sort by release date?

by Jerkface Killah Sat Dec 11, 2010 1:45 pm

I am working on an ongoing project in which I need to identify a game every week that came out this week, some year in the past. To clarify, I could say, "this week in 1989, Game X came out." I am having trouble finding a website that will display games by release date. MobyGames.com lets you sort by year but not by month. Any suggestions? I don't want to have to make my own list as it would be games for all consoles. Help! Thanks.

I'm not aware of any. The RFGeneration database and Mobygames database can be searched by release year, but that's the best I know of.

Gamefaqs has the release date of a game when you select it from a list. Thats about it man.

Actually, even Wikipedia can help. For instance go to the List of NES games. If you look at the column headers you can click on the >< button to sort by that column. Then you can change it to up/down as you prefer. Granted they're only by year, but still that should help.

The sortable columns on Wikipedia's "List of x games" are a great way to get started, but oddly some of the dates on those tables are different than the dates in the game's individual entries. Chrontendo made this list for NES games that's pretty helpful.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! This Wikipedia page would be the best, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lists_of_v ... es#By_date but it only has PlayStation 1 and 2. But Wikipedia seems to be a good place to find links to lists. I'll let you guys know if I make a giant master list.
