Merging Super Scope info here[edit]

I don't think it would be a good idea to merge the Super Scope info with the SNES article, as these are two separate topics. The Super Scope category exists so people can easily find other games that also use the Super Scope, as well as info about the Super Scope itself. Since the Super Scope category is categorized under SNES, it already appears as a link on the SNES category page (anyone looking for Super Scope would then easily find the reference on this page). --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 12:20, 23 August 2008 (CDT)

It's just an accessory though. So by that logic, should we add the Nintendo Zapper and all other gun accessories? How about games that use the Game Genie? I don't see a high need for any of that. Relevant accessory information can be listed in the description of the game, but I don't think it needs to be categorized. RobJ1981 12:59, 23 August 2008 (CDT)
I'm inclined to agree with Rob here. It seems a bit unnecessary... If we decide to go the other way, we need to make sure we create categories for the Wii Fit board, Wii MotionPlus, Zapper, EyeToy, etc. That's perfectly fine, but it should be all or none IMO.--DukeRuckleyTalk | Contribs 13:08, 23 August 2008 (CDT)
I agree with NMH on this one. We have a category for R.O.B., and we probably should have a category for the Zapper. I don't know if it really has to be all or nothing, it should be as much as people are interested in providing sufficient info to create a separate category. Wikipedia does not shy away from this level of categorization, I don't see why we should. Procyon (Talk)
I also support creating articles for all accessories as well as the overall category for them: Category:Accessories. If you own one of these accessories, it is vital to know what other games are available to you (for example I own the Menacer as well as a four way multiplayer split for the Sega Genesis - too bad the second one doesn't have a name printed on it - and knowing my options for purchasing compatible games was a priority for me). --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 13:12, 24 August 2008 (CDT)
There were two official multi-tap adaptors; the Team Player by Sega, and the 4 Way Play by EA. They were initially not cross-compatible, but some later games supported both and Sega later redesigned the Team Player to work with EA titles. Categorising these properly could be rather complicated. GarrettTalk 20:37, 24 August 2008 (CDT)
