TheGamesDB.net is an online database for video game fans and enthusiasts. The site serves as a frontend service that is linked to a database of video game metadata and high quality artwork.
The database of artwork and metadata can be incorporated into various home theatre PC (HTPC) software and plug-ins through their API. You can search for specific games or a broader list of games, retrieve artwork file locations for found games, update favorites and user ratings and request new or updated content by specified dates. Requests are made through a GET request to the REST API with responses in XML (future plans for JSON).
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
