Google Knowledge Graph
More information on your favourite games, available on Google Knowledge Graph
“We always want to help people find the best answers to their questions – fast,” a Google spokesperson told VentureBeat. “With today’s update, you can ask questions about video games, and (while there will be ones we don’t cover) you’ll get answers for console and PC games as well as the most popular mobile apps.”
Now, when you Google search a video game, it’s Knowledge Graph will now give you more details about that particular game. Including a release date, developer, and more besides!
For example, if you search for Civilization: Beyond Earth, you’ll see a panel on the right with screenshots from the game, its Metacritic score, a short description via Wikipedia, the series it belongs to, and what platforms it’s available for. You can see this from the shot above.
Google’s Knowledge Graph was first introduced in 2012, although Video Games is just the latest edition to this. Google just keeps on giving!
