I have noticed on some of the games the api search function retrieves the wrong game ID's.  For example: 
Metroid gets  1081 but it should be 21761 
This is happening with quite a few of the NES roms that I have.  Is there a way to correct this behavior?

@tannerellen: I might have just solved my own problem.  I was specifying a resource_type as game but not resources also.  So once I added resources=game&resource_type=game then everything seemed to work properly.  I will do some more testing but my problem games seem to be working now with the API.

I haven't looked too much into it, but that does seem to be the problem. 1081 is actually the Metroid concept, so obviously the resource type selection wasn't in effect..
