you post to gameverifying
, please ensure that you read this in its entirety. It's long, but this should answer any questions you have prior to posting.
Do NOT message the moderators to verify games outside of gameverifying. The modteam will only verify games posted to gameverifying.
You can message the moderators with questions about gameverifying
, but not about verifying games.
Who are the trusted verifiers?
Trusted verifiers have been determined by the moderation team to be reliable and accurate in their verifications. If your submission has a comment by a trusted verifier, you can be safe in the knowledge that your game is legitimate or fake as described by themselves. Trusted verifiers can be found by their flair to the right of their username (different to the standard flairs you can pick out yourself). As the integrity of our verifications come first in this subreddit, any attempt to imitate a trusted verifier (e.g. username copying) may lead to a user being removed without warning.
NO FURTHER IMAGES, NO VERIFICATION.
It's that simple.
ONLY use Imgur or Reddit's gallery function to submit images.
Some sites block traffic from countries outside of the US/EU. In order to limit this, please use Imgur to host multiple images, or Reddit for singular images - As of July 2020, users on New Reddit can upload multiple images in gallery form. If you're still browsing on Old Reddit, we still highly recommend Imgur. This also includes inserting GameStop links - users outside of the US cannot access this site. Image hosting sites other than Imgur are blocked as per Rule 4, so don't
ask the moderators for these posts to be approved - including images direct from eBay using the i.ebay.img URL.
Please do not post auction listings.
We shouldn't give traffic to those who knowingly sell counterfeit video games. As a result, submissions of auction listings are banned. You can comment with an auction listing on a post, but posts of this kind will not be approved whatsoever. Please save the image(s) and upload to Imgur to share them. If you're unsure on how to use Imgur
, please read our posting guidelines
located in our wiki.
Please do not re-submit a game you've already shared.
Please do not make another post as additional information to a game you've posted. Make a comment on your existing post instead
, using Imgur to share further images. Not only does this make gameverifying
cleaner and easier to navigate for yourself and others, it also ensures that we have sufficient information to verify your games properly. Re-submitting the same game you've posted previously may lead to temporary suspension
of posting privileges.
A bit extra on the above (Rule 7), for secondary posts - creating another post simply stating "These are the backs of what I shared", only confuses the moderators and other users of this subreddit due to the number of submissions we receive on a daily basis. You, as a submitter, will know what post you're referring to, but others may not hence the creation of this rule.
gameverifying is not a place for irrelevant posts, shitposting or useless comments, nor is it your personal soapbox.
Please refrain from posts and comments of this sort and stick to the matter at hand, which is verifying games. Posts and/or comments will be removed with a warning added onto your account. This also includes buying/selling posts and posts of your collection. We're not GameSale
We're no longer accepting video submissions.
Video submissions tend to not have the quality we expect for verifications (blurred shots, out of focus) and as such we've disabled the ability to submit videos to gameverifying
. Images are much easier to "shoot", can be clearer and and easier to verify a submission.
We're not looking to be partnered with any Twitter, Facebook or other social-media sites.
Please stop submitting these requests, they will be removed and locked without warning, and you'll get a lovely skull (warning flair) added onto your account. The only sites other than Reddit we're involved with is Discord, and our own website
(work in progress). Our server is here, with a permanent invite link: https://discord.gg/Pshfpza
What's the value of this game?
Posts and comments of this sort will be removed. We're not gamevaluing
. Alternatively, join our Discord server
and post in #game-valuing.

Seriously, fuck off
. You're not smart or funny. We're not limited to just Pokemon games - whilst Pokemon games are commonly faked due to their popularity, we verify ALL other games too, even trading cards. Posts/comments on this matter will be removed under Rule 8 (no irrelevant posts/comments), and you'll get a lovely skull (warning flair) added onto your account.
AutoModerator will leave a comment on any submission.
This is an automated reminder to ensure that you have provided enough information for us to verify your games/consoles. Ideally, we'd need clear images of the full front and backs of games, along with any other items you'd like verified. If you have already shared these images in your post, you can disregard AutoModerator's comment. If for some reason the seller can't provide further images the post will be marked as "Unsolved". If you can't be bothered to submit any further images - how do you expect us to verify your games?
You don't need to open a DS cart, WHATSOFUCKINGEVER.
These carts are better left unopened. It is very unlikely that you will ever close these carts back up again, and more likely that they'll get stuck in your DS/3DS. If you do want to open one up, we have a text guide
, but we're not going to be held responsible for any damage to the game and/or console
. Do this at your own risk, and here's a table with pros and cons:
|Pros ||Cons |
|You get to see what makes a DS cart "tick". ||You'll destroy the fucking thing. |
|A fun exercise for all the family. ||You've wasted your hard-earned cash. |
|Looks good on a CV. ||You'll have to live with the consequences of your actions. |
Authentic Cartridge Depository
Thanks to u/Veleon_Kaloan
, we now have a depository for authentic
game cartridges located in our wiki
. New entries are welcome, fake carts will not be submitted. This should make the verification process clearer for yourselves:
- YOUR CARTRIDGE IS AUTHENTIC. Any fake copies will not be accepted.
- The image is adequately lit in order to preserve all available cartridge details.
- The images of your cartridge include the front AND back of the cartridge - seriously, this is a major point.
- The color of the images are set to neutral or realistically reflect what they look like in real life
- Contact the moderators first, in order to notify them that you want to aid the sub with your image set.
More information can be found in u/Veleon_Kaloan
After one week (7 days)
Posts marked as "Awaiting Images" will be marked as "Unsolved". After this point, you are welcome to reply to the pinned comment on your post with further images where a verification will be made on your post. Please do not make another post
as this violates Rule 7 (see above about not re-submitting a game you've already shared).
Methods to verify games
Can be found in our wiki
which is regularly updated and can be found in our sidebar along with other resources. We want this to be a free and helpful resource, and we welcome others who want to grow and add/make amends to it - just drop u/Frontzie
a private message, comment below or alternatively join our Discord server
and post in #wiki-editors if you'd like to be an editor for the wiki.
Every week (or when we can be bothered), we make a post as part of our "Did You Know" series. We'll showcase a part of gaming history; from the rarest games, consoles and accessories, to the downright absurd titles and ones you'd never consider existing. Subreddit related announcements will also be shared wthin these weeklies. If you want to submit a rare game, console or accessory to be showcased, please join our Discord server
and post in #suggestions with a description of what you'd like to be showcased.
Misleading information is a big issue with the verification of games. Unsure if a game exists in retail/physical form? Google/DuckDuckGo it. It's really that simple. We'll also add a list of game per platform into our wiki
at some point.
As per Rule 6 - Any user found to spread/attempt to mislead other users will have one and only warning direct messaged to them with their comment removed. Second attempt to mislead will result in a temporary (3 day) ban, and your comments/posts will be auto-removed for manual review by the mod team. Further attempts to mislead will then result in a permanent ban. I personally don't like bans, but the integrity of our verifications come first in this subreddit. A full list of gameverifying's rules can be found here
