I am trying to obtain Genre for all results of my search on the Giantbomb API.

I see that it is available as a field on the Game resource. But if I add it as a field listing or just have no field listing I do not get a genre value returned. Has anyone had this issue? I'm I doing something wrong?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Below are my queries:

format=json&query="assassin%27s%20Creed"&resources=game

format=json&query="assassin%27s%20Creed"&resources=game&field_list=id,name,genres

As far as I know, the search and games resources do not return the games' genres. It does return in the individual game resource, for example with http://www.giantbomb.com/api/game/2950/?api_key=[KEY]&field_list=id,name,genres

That feature has been requested in the Feature Requests thread a long time ago, so I guess you just have to work around it for now.

Collection results never include everything, and you can't force those missing field to appear.

If you haven't already done so, you can make a second query for each result requesting only the genre, then update your UI to include that genre.
