Having the same issue. Docs are saying this should work. Is it a bug?

same problem here...

http://www.giantbomb.com/api/games/?format=json&api_key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&filter=name:nhl%2015 : WORKS

http://www.giantbomb.com/api/games/?format=json&api_key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&filter=name:nhl%2015&platforms=146 : NOT WORKING

146 = PS4

The second request is giving me all records about the platform used in the query and it doesn't take the filter by field...

@poopertropper: Hmm, something might be wrong there. What do you expect to see in that query? (Also, I removed your API key from your post).

Was hoping for it to only show Xbox, PC, and PS4 results in that list.

I believe this has been fixed. I'm calling the endpoint with both multiple platform filters like "platform:146|94|145|139|117|157|96|121|123", but also with a single platform "platform:146" without any issues.
