So, where is everyone getting this information from? Wikipedia is nice and all, but some of the categories include stuff that aren't games, I was just wondering whether we should source it from one place (official or otherwise) or whether we should make an (educated) guess from Wikipedia or whatever.--Froglet 09:04, 2 April 2007 (CDT)

Wikipedia has a List of video games page that links to different lists by system. I say we just use those lists... This process is going to be extremely tedious, especially for the larger systems (Playstation 1 and 2, Super Nintendo, etc.). Keep in mind that some games might be repeats under different names, as well.--DukeRuckley 11:27, 2 April 2007 (CDT)
Tedious, yes, but extremely necessary for tracking our content (or lack thereof). --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 21:50, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Regional releases/Famicom[edit]

We have both the NES and the Famicom listed. We all know that these are normally considered the same, but I can see that adding a separate Famicom listing is necessary for Japan exclusive releases. Is this what it (and other regional system differences) was intended for? --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 21:50, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

I would say probably not. It's not like we'd have a separate list for Japanese PSX or Dreamcast games, so the NES/Famicom distinction should be in system name only. At best, we could justify having a Famicom Disk System release list as a separate list. Nice work on the recent cleanup, btw. Procyon (Talk) 11:38, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Mobile, handheld systems[edit]

Currently at the top of the page it says, "web-based, mobile and operating systems are currently excluded as there are no comprehensive lists of games for these platforms and new ones are constantly being released." Where do we stand on this, since there are a couple in the list already (N-Gage and EPOC32) and new games constantly be added is pretty flimsy, since they're also being added for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, etc. The reason I ask, is Drifter2000's comment on the iPod talk page about there being 45 games for the player. If every game for a system is out of SW's scope, then there's no sense in adding it, but if we're going to have guides for games on these systems, there's no harm in adding what we can to the list to see where we're at. - najzere 19:57, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
