Reading the other database request thread gave me another idea.

I'm thinking out loud here and haven't really thought it through, so go easy on me :)

What a bout a some way of linking sequels, not only on the same console but across multiple systems.
Mario Kart on the SNES would link to the N64, GBA, DS, GameCube, Wii etc.

Not really sure how this would be implemented.

Initial thought is these games would be put in sets similar to how XBMC works e.g.

We would have a 'Mario Kart' set containing:
Super Mario Kart (SNES)
Mario Kart 64 (N64)
Mario Kart (GBA)
Mario Kart: Double Dash (GameCube)
Mario Kart DS (DS)
Mario Kart Wii (Wii)

Then they could be ordered by the release date field that already exists.

Hey, glad to see you floating around again. We have a database development forum now. Ill add you to it.

PS: I think its a good idea. It has come up before in the form of "Series". Series would fit in to what GameEx currently does with MAME.
