I am Mr. Hoffmann, the grandson of Reinhold Hoffmann and a gamer now since around 1987.
Some of my favourite game series are Mortal Kombat, Borderlands, Tekken, King of Fighters, Monster Rancher, Bust A Groove and basically too many more to count them all.
Beside gaming, I like writing about it and video game culture.
You might have heard or read about http://www.game-art-hq.com a website which features over 15 art collaborations by gamers and is also the home of a growing video game character database.
Currently we have a League of Legends Crossover Project in Progress, are working with Overclocked.Remix on a big tribute for Final Fantasy IX and are mostly expanding the database sector which covers around 1500 video game characters now.
If you are an artist, our current art contest might interest you. It has prizes up to $100 and is about drawing with traditional methods.
what informations do you hope to find directly on google or on the first websites?
The role of the character? In which games he was? Images of the character?
Profile informations given by the game makers like "Sagat is from Thailand, loves fried chicken, hates fish and is using Muay Thai as his fighting style"?
The fictional age of a character or when he first appeared in a video game?
Other development informations like how a character was developed, influcened by other characters, knowing who created the character?
Relations to other game characters, his friends and enemies?
I ask all that becausei am working on a video game character db and hoped some of you could help me on what types of informations should be there.
When i myself google a character i see the wiki's related to a game but those are often suuper long and have no summaries with all important details of a video game character in a short form which makes it sometimes more cmplicated to find a information than needed, with my own project i try to get as many details into the shortest form possible.
