At the moment, GotY editions are seperate games, but their sales are generally combined with the main game, like Fallout 3. There is a GotY edition but the main game has been getting the extra sales that have come recently due to the GotY edition, so should they just be conbined into one game, and simply add more box arts to the main game?



Around the Network

If the sales are being added to the main game, then yes, add the boxart to it with the caption "GotY Edition" or something like that.




If they have their own entry I don't see why it's necessary for the regular Edition to have the GotY boxart.
And I decide from case to case if a GotY should have it's own entry or not.

Surely if it doesn't have any sales, it should be put with the full edition?



Well, it also depends on where ioi puts the sales, if he puts them separately, there isn't much we can do. But if they're in the original game, then yes, by all means add the GotY edition boxart




Around the Network

That contradicts what oliist says, as Fallout 3 GotY has no sales, yet I can't add the GotY edition to the main game (I have tried)



Well, if oli doesn't want to, he's the boss. Anyway, you can ask him personally




I have both Fallout 3 original and the GoTY Edition, I like to show both in my collection.


The GoTY Edition sales should probably be tracked seperate also...



________________________________________________________________

For the records:

If a GotY Edition consists of enough new material (i.e. all the downloadable episodes in this case) compared to the original Edition, then a new entry is justified.
Regardless if it will have sales figures or not.


Again. I don't see why the nomal one should have the GotY cover.
If someone owns the original then there is no real need to add the cover of an other & already existing entry.

P.S.
Keep in mind that the decisions I make are never to bully someone of you, but to avoid unnecessary content in order to built a database of high quality standards.
