Is it possible get a returned list of specific games? You are able to get a list of the top games and search for specific games but I can’t find any API calls that let me get info on say 10 specific games like I can with the streams API.
Besides using the streams endpoint with the optional game parameter? Or is it you want a complete list of games on Twitch? In which case, I took care of that by querying the Giant Bomb API for that information. That is what I use in my bot in fact to make sure that folks pick a game that Twitch knows of from a drop down menu.
I want to get info on a list of specific games. The games API returns the top games but I would like to be able to do a specific list of games. Something like this.
I think this was brought up before, this may be a limitation of how Twitch caches data as to why a request only supports one game. However, Twitch Development has to speak to that.
I have to ask though, are you essentially data mining Twitch? I have read a few posts and I get that feeling?
No, but if I was I could essentially just call games/top about 20 times to get the complete list of games from Twitch.
I’m interested in getting the viewer count for a specific list of games. I would prefer to do this in one call versus several calls to games/top before I get all the games I want.
