      - `Info.Emulator`
      - `Info.CloneOf`
      - `Info.Year`

      - `Info.PlayedCount`
      - `Info.PlayedTime`
      - `Info.FileIsAvailable`
      - `Info.System`
      - `Info.Overview`
   * index_offset - the offset (from the current selection) of the game to
     retrieve info on.  i.e. -1=previous game, 0=current game, 1=next game...
     and so on.  Default value is 0.
   * filter_offset - the offset (from the current filter) of the filter
     containing the selection to retrieve info on.  i.e. -1=previous filter,
     0=current filter.  Default value is 0.

Return Value:
