You have ticks in your query when I'm guessing they should be quotes.


// Current
$select = "SELECT * FROM games WHERE game=`$get`";

// Should be (if $get is a string)
$select = "SELECT * FROM games WHERE game='$get'";

// Should be (if $get is a int)
$select = "SELECT * FROM games WHERE game=$get";


Please note: you should either be validating the value in $_GET['game'], using an escape-string type function or database parameters. Otherwise there will be SQL injection.
