Games are classified by release dates, modes, genres, systems and companies. A single game may be in one or more categories.

Note: due to convention, game names that begin with a grammatical article (A, An, Das, Der, Die (German: the), L', La, Las, Le, Los, or The) are listed under the next word given in the title. The Legend of Zelda, for instance, will be listed under the letter L in any categories it appears in. Due to technical restrictions, it will not also be listed under the letter T in those categories.
