Very nice start! I see that you have inclued almost any system including
pinballs and arcade games in the platforms table. Is this the first step
towards the "Universal Home-Arcade Games Database" ? :-)
Also, should things become really serious, you will have to build a more
complex database structure. For example, to avoid data duplication, you'd
better put the game name in a separate table, because the same game could
be available for more platforms.
If you can have a decent web-app working, that allows users to insert and
update data, then the data-entry part will not be a problem anymore. I'm
sure that there is enough people on the net willing to type-in the data for
their favourite systems.
