I spoke to Wolfwood about making a thread as a repository for all duplicate game reports. Please use this thread for further reports, so that they are all in one place.

All you need is to provide links and, if needed, proof (some profiles have near identical names) that they are duplicate profiles. In example:
quote Typical Report
Profile 1: Egma (Import)
Profile 2: Game
Proof: Gamespot, IGN Alternative Names.
Keep in mind, Neoseeker does have a system set up where games with different names show up as separate on the search function. For example. The forum id will be identical and a note such as "This product is also called Biohazard 5 in Japan." will be visible where the profile description should be.

Thanks, contributors!

It's not really duplicate for the same platform, however, these are separate profiles for platforms for the same game and it's kinda confusing when you want to complete with platforms (in my case, for the PC). Can you merge them?

Metal Slug X
Metal Slug X (iOS)

Metal Slug 3 (PS2)
Metal Slug 3

Thanks!

The imports have Japanese boxshots in them, although the localized profiles have more content.

Monaco.
Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine.

Guess the developers added a subtitle to the game along the way and we ended up having it as a new profile. There's some contributions on both profiles and achievements are tied to the Monaco profile currently.

Just noticed a pair of profiles for Five Nights at Freddy's 2:

The first
The second

The only thing that I can think of is that when the iPhone/iPad platforms were merged, an inadvertent duplicate was created.

I got the second game's name updated without realizing that there's already a profile for Origins Blackgate. My bad.

Not sure if this is a duplicate, but might as well report it: First one has a FAQ, but the FAQs button on the second profile directs to the first one's.

Hey Phi, thanks for the heads up! That's an important Wii U so we definitely got that fixed. The duplicate shouldn't exist any more.

There are two profiles for Star Fox Zero.

Star Fox Zero with contributions
Star Fox Zero without contributions

Thanks for taking care of it. And for the compliment. ;D

Yeah the new Record Keeper profiles are definitely duplicates, and not added by any user who would've seen the original profiles anyway. The new submissions have been removed from the database, the existing ones are much better anyway.
