< report >What I mean in the title is that the option to change which title shows up in our lists would be very helpful.

For example: You're playing a Korean game, but know it as it's English title. When you search up the English name, the game shows up and the English title is under the "other titles" list, right? You add it to your list, but the Korean title is what shows in your list - not the English one. This can be confusing to people who suck at memorizing original title names.

There's this website called "My Video Game List," kind of similar to "My Anime List." When you add a game to your list, it gives you the option to choose which title translation shows up on your list. This can make navigating it much easier for people who memorize specific titles.

Maybe when we add a new game to our list, the default can be the original title but you have the ability to change it to it's English translation in your list? (No where else, just in your specific list)

< report >You can't specify which language you want a title translated on a VN basis, but you can globally change that setting in your profile.
My Profile > Title language > Add Language > English.
Now, 428 ~Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de~ shows up as 428: Shibuya Scramble in my list. Also works when I search.

< report >I'm talking more about cases where people memorize certain games by different titles in a variety of languages, though.

I feel it'd be beneficial to be able to change which title displays.

< report >Micromanaging your titles sounds more like a pain in the ass to me that anything useful. You do you but I doubt it will ever be implemented.

< report >Just a suggestion. The titles could be whatever translation you have pre-set on title language, changing the display title would be option.

< report >I like the idea, might use it for some titles, but I don't think it should be a setting that clutters any page. If you can find a way to make this work without being invasive, I think it'd be nice.

< report >A way I can think of is going to your list, scrolling to the game, adn then having a drop down menu for it, maybe kinda like what you do when you add a specific release? But it would come up automatically as just the default title according to your settings; changing the title/picking one wouldn't be a requirement.

I'm bad with explaining things, but I hope this kinda makes at least a bit of sense.
