Steam offers a REST-like API (details here and here) enabling a registered developer to obtain informations on its users (games owned, time passed on each...). However, I didn't find useful informations on the games themselves.
As a consequence, I'm looking for a database/API having some of the following informations on games:
- the name (quite obviously)
- type of game (like fps, str and so on)
- details on multiplayer (maximum number of players, if LAN/local game is possible)
- metacritic score
- year of release
I could get all these informations on Steam using some HTML parser, but that's highly inconvenient. Are there better solutions?
