Game FanArt - GUI Suppot and Scraping of background backdrops Fan Art for Games?

Lightbulb 
This is a continuation of the feature suggestion thread for FanArt support in XBMC:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=30083

XBMC now supports FanArt for Movies, Music, TV Shows, Weather, and Plugins:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=FanArt

I now believe that XBMC is currently only missing support for Game FanArt, FanArt for Games. Making specific game titles enjoy the same background backdrops eye candy galore.

Example of a site that hosts FanArt for games (where you can upload/download yours!):
http://htbackdrops.com/categories.php?cat_id=2

Add your +1 here in this feature suggestion thread if you want to see this in XBMC some day.

Cool

I have also submit a new ticket on trac for this for tracking purposes, please not comment in that ticket unless you have some constructive ideas about development or want to submit a patch for it:
http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/5683

PS! Later once XBMC gets a Games Library which support Arcade ROMS and launching third-party emulators directly, we might want to also want to have "Arcade FanArt" in XBMC as well, separated from the normal Games FanArt, meaning for the emulators that XBMC will support launching nativly?

There are still NES, SNES, Atari, N64, etc. emulators that work under different OS's. Plus there are a handful of XB1 games that are PC games too.

Hopefully, the Magnavox Odyssey 2 games would be part of the fanart collection.

Information 
htbackdrops.com (Home Theater Backdrops) offers FanArt backdrop hosting for Music, Weather, and Games in high quality high-definition resolutions,...

...but where it is still really lagging behind is the numbers of FanArt backdrops for Games, ...now this might not be so important to most of you today but as development have started on a games library for XBMC the time will soon rather than later come when you will want XBMC to automatically scrape (download) FanArt backdrops for your favorite games, ...however as of right now there is no known site other than htbackdrops.com which offer FanArt backdrops for games, and thus far not many people have contributed to this community driven site, but if we do then this site will be primed when this feature arrives to XBMC:

http://htbackdrops.com/categories.php?cat_id=2

So please consider uploading your own backdrops of your favorite game (or musician), register an account and login then you'll find an "Upload" link in the upper right hand corner for the category you are in.

Leo has picked up the thread where Awen left off, Awen is busy in his personal life atm, but has stated he will return.
So it is more important than ever to populate htbackdrops in preparation.
