Endpoint Top Games from V5 API returns giantbomb_id always 0

Since 23 October I have noticed that V5 Get Top Games endpoint always returns 0 in field “giantbomb_id”.

Is it a bug? Or did I miss some announcement?

Twitch no longer use GiantBomb as a games database, they recently moved to IGDB and so don’t maintain references to GiantBomb game IDs.

The API returning 0 rather than removing the field from that deprecated endpoint is the safest option and least likely to be a breaking change.

Thank for the information!

Now I have one more reason to write some code this weekend :slight_smile:

This uservoice

Contains a request to update helix with the IGDB ID

And a note on how to use the IGDB API to get the IGDB ID by TwitchID

Apologies for the confusion. It was an oversight during the IGDB migration and we only only posted about this side effect today.
