Rename games that conflict with Genres

The following games have names that match genres, and it means every time we refer to them we have to disambiguate . As these games are very old, and rarely accessed, it makes more sense for the genres to get the names for their redirects.

  1. Artillery -> Artillery (Commodore PET)
  2. Baseball -> Baseball (NES)
  3. Basketball -> Basketball (Atari 2600)
  4. Bowling -> Bowling (Atari 2600)
  5. Boxing -> Boxing (Atari 2600)
  6. Golf -> Golf (NES)
  7. Pinball -> Pinball (NES)
  8. Racing -> Racing (PlayStation)
  9. Skiing -> Skiing (Atari 2600)
  10. Soccer -> Soccer (NES)
  11. Stealth -> Stealth (Commodore 64/128)
  12. Tennis -> Tennis (NES)
  13. Volleyball -> Volleyball (NES)

I propose we move these pages to Racing (game) so that we can have set up the regular redirect for Racing

It's an unfortunate problem, but yeah, I think this is the best way to approach the problem. The headache of trying to leave those links the way they are, and the havoc it creates when trying to link the categories isn't worth preserving the original guide names, so I'm in favor of this change.

( 🤔 ) O o ⴰ 😃 👍 I concur. ~ Sean.43L (talk) 06:53, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
When renaming them, I think it would be better to have the system in parentheses instead of just (game) -BrownDerby (talk) 16:00, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
That does match our policies better. I've put some proposals above. -- Prod (talk) 17:33, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
Maybe it should just be Volleyball (NES), like Ice Hockey (NES) which was also on FDS first. -BrownDerby (talk) 05:20, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Updated above, and some all moves complete. -- Prod (talk) 00:24, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
