Fields

What?

Fields are properties of an entity. For example, a Game field would be rating or release_dates. Some fields have properties of their own, for example, the esrb field has the property synopsis.

Where?

Fields can be used on any entity that has sub-properties such as Games, Companies, People etc.

How?

Fields are requested in a comma separated list. For example, to get some information for some Games, Genres, Themes or anything else, you could request it like this:

/games/4356,189,444?fields=name,release_dates,esrb.synopsis,rating

Note the synopsis property of esrb can be accessed directly with a dot.

A full list of fields can be obtained by passing a * as a field. Alternatively you can use the meta postfix: /games/meta to get a list of all fields.
