One of your problems is the error in CheckTitle:

bool CheckTitle(VideoGame*& first, string title)
{  
  VideoGame *current;
  current=first;
  while(current!=NULL)
    {
      if(current->Name==title)
	{
	  return true;                
	}
      else
	{
          return false;
	}
      // You can't get to here :
      current=current->link;
    }
  // If you get here what do you return ???
}

I have added a couple of comments, simply put you are exiting false if the first title is not good. The else { } can be deleted.

In addition, looking for a game title by exact name seems a bit harsh, how about if you look for the length of the input string, e.g. Halo matches. You could be slight more sophisticated and return a tri-state value from check title, unique/multi/none.

p.s. Did you know that if you put two lines like this

std::string A="a long line split in two"
         " with some extra";

// String B is the same as string A.
std::string B="a long line split in two with some extra";

That may help you readability in a couple of places.

Edited 6 Years Ago by StuXYZ: n/a

thanks but i figured out the problem
and you were right about the bool function

Thank you though
