Review: Game Hunter sorts and organizes any large game collection

Organize, manage, and catalog your video game collection.

Game Hunter for Mac, like its sister application DVD Hunter for Mac, offers users a way to comprehensively catalog and keep track of their large video game collections. The level of detail this app offers might be a bit overwhelming, though.

Installation was performed quickly and easily, and we were adding games to our newly created catalog within minutes. The intuitive interface meant little hassle in adding titles and populating the various fields of data. We typed a few words into the title field and clicked "Auto complete" to retrieve the rest of the information from Amazon's database. However, while doing so we found that some of the fields were superfluous. We wondered if any gamers out there would ever need to sort their game collection by UPC code or age rating. These seem more useful to sellers, but Game Hunter for Mac is designed for the collector, with no place to add a price or note whether it's been sold or not. There's a feature to track the lending history of the game, which integrates your contacts into the app to identify which of your friends or family have borrowed it. You can also check off the game's status--"Unplayed," "Playing," or "Finished"--information that even the casual gamer would know off the top of their head.

Game Hunter for Mac is designed for the serious video game collector to stay on top of their collection and not lose track of the titles they've purchased. Though the level of detail it offers may be more than necessary, this application works as intended and is definitely worth a try.
