Revolution is still a codename and might change + The official codename is Nintendo Revolution. --BMH 10:19, 9 January 2006 (PST)

Resolution[edit]

About resolution, is that really necessary? Resolution only really matters for HDTV supported games at the moment and is supported by less than 50 games. I think if you want to include resolution, you should do it in the game page for now? -Mr Saeba 19:03, 9 January 2006 (PST)

  • Its absolutely not necessary, just as Services is not necessary, and Number of players. Those are bits of information that you can include with the game, but not ones to categorize them by. --Hack 19:49, 9 January 2006 (PST)

Series Category?[edit]

Could we also make categories for series of games? A category of Final Fantasy games, Castlevania games, Contra games, and so on? Koweja 21:31, 16 July 2006 (CDT)

I definitely see no problem with this! It would be useful in navigating some of the larger series easily. echelon 23:49, 16 July 2006 (CDT)
Yeah, sounds good. Of course the next thing is whether or not to include "series" in the category name... GarrettTalk 23:56, 16 July 2006 (CDT)
Putting "series" in the category would be redundant, as far as I see it. We could eliminate some of our disambiguation pages through such categories. --DrBob (Talk) 00:13, 17 July 2006 (CDT)
Okay, it is done. My brain hurts. Category:Series has all games that are part of a series. I think. Koweja 23:04, 17 July 2006 (CDT)
You forgot Half-Life. :-P Good job. --DrBob (Talk) 01:47, 18 July 2006 (CDT)

Weird CSS/Div issue[edit]

I was trying to change the Genre layout to use CSS-positioned <div>s, but it went all screwy when I submitted it, despite looking perfectly fine in the Preview.

If somebody can look at the code I used and tell me what went wrong, it'd be appreciated; here's what I used. It's exactly the same as what I did for my Shenmue and Eternal Arcadia ToC pages.

  • Action - GTA, third person shooters, etc.
  • Adventure - Zelda, etc.
  • Fighting - Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, etc.
  • FPS - first person shooter: Halo, Unreal, Quake, etc.
  • MMOG - massively multiplayer online game: Everquest, World of Warcraft, etc.
  • Music - Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, Rez, etc.
  • Platform - Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros., etc.
  • Puzzle - Tetris, etc.
  • Racing - Mario Kart, Gran Turismo, etc.
  • RPG - Final Fantasy, etc.
  • RTS - real time strategy games: Starcraft, etc.
  • Simulation - Animal Crossing, The Sims, etc.
  • Sports - Madden, etc.
  • Strategy - turn-based strategy games: Final Fantasy Tactics, etc.

You didn't have the {{-}} which caused the floating divs to allow the sections to kind of overwrite them. I fixed it and it works good now :). Thanks for the change though. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 14:21, 24 August 2006 (CDT)

Company list[edit]

I added the full list of categories because there were plenty on the current list that weren't particularly notable (see Category:Her Interactive) and thought it simply hadn't been updated since there were fewer company categories [1]. Since we're going down the route of having fewer companies to keep just the well known, we might as well have just the well known. So I'm going to prune a little, and we'll see how this goes. -- Mason11987 (Talk - Contributions) 19:51, 30 January 2007 (CST)

Strategy genre vs. turn-based strategy genre[edit]

What is the difference between Strategy and Turn-based strategy? The brief description of the Strategy category reads "turn-based strategy games: Final Fantasy Tactics, etc." which seems to suggest that the two categories should be merged. If they are in fact different, what is the difference and how can we make the distinction clear? --Teddy (talk) 19:06, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Mario Party developer[edit]

Mario Party 9 and Mario Party: Island Tour were developed by Nd Cube, not Hudson Soft. Also, Mario Party 10 is being developed by Nd Cube. Should the "by Hudson" after Mario Party in the Series section be changed? And if so, what should it be changed to? --Flufftailer (talk) 22:00, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Whatever is correct. If you believe it should be Nd Cube, change it to Nd Cude. Procyon 04:14, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
For the most part, you are correct. Please consult one or more reference (e.g. Wikipedia) before deciding. Also, it looks like Mario Party 10 may have multiple developers, or multiple systems each with their own dev. Note that these discussion are not as necessary as you may think. Be confident that your changes are correct! Feel free to make the change and simply reference your change with a link or a reason (in the summary field) and if it is sound/correct it will remain, if not it will be challenged by someone else. Thanks for all your help. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 02:53, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
