Summary of Video games WikiProject open tasks:


The links in the listing desperately need updating. There are many games whose name is also a general word, and when the link uses only the name, the result is that it links to an article about the general concept, rather than the Commodore 64 game. For examples, see "Cauldron" and "Druid". These links should have "(computer game)" after them. 12:16, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)


Is ABP actually a real game, or is it just a mis-spelling of APB ?? I couldn't find it on Google... --Hooverbag 16:03, 2004 Nov 14 (UTC)

To merge[edit]

There are a number of games listed in the Commercial Data Systems article that should be added to this article. —Psychonaut 19:53, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Quo Vadis[edit]

Quo Wadis is a typo. It should be Quo Vadis (by "The Edge")

S.O.S. (the game with no name)[edit]

It seems this game is missing in the list. Also P.O.D. (proof of destruction) links to a faulty link on Wikipedia.

cordell lake?[edit]

anyone ever heard of this game? i think i remember it, hell, i think i still have it --andrew 02:59, 11 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I believe the game you are thinking of is Odell Lake. I think my copy came with my commodore 64. --Burntnickel 12:15, 22 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Most of the wikilings point at wrong pages (that is, pages with a same name but unrelated to the game.) If someone has too much spare time, it could be used fixing the links...

I've already addressed this concern over two years ago... It looks like people just don't care about the links but add them in bulk by some automatic script. I have gone over sections 0, A, and B now, disambiguating every link needed, but I have to take a break now and continue later. Going over these three sections alone has caused the article to grow by almost 4 KB. JIP | Talk 14:09, 20 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've finished the disambiguation. The article is now 104 KB long. Looks like some German dude had the infinite wisdom to list every game he had ever heard of, no matter how trivial (possibly including ones written in one hour in some guy's bedroom and only distributed to his mates), not caring a toss about whether the name was spelled correctly, or whether the wikilink led to another article. But he only covered sections 0-9 and A through K - sections L through Z were left untouched. This creates a very lopsided article. Should this be broken down into smaller articles, and should that be by length, or by letter grouping? JIP | Talk 06:12, 21 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Table format[edit]

This list could be made a lot more encyclopedic by adding a year of release and publisher for each entry and consequently rearranged into a table format. --Cgull 21:28, 30 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Which list of games is the best in Wikipedia? --Gildos 20:16, 2 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I like the N64 games list format, though I think a 'country of origin' would be more appropriate than 'region released', given the fact that C64 games were developed in virtually all corners of the globe. And of course each alphabetical table would need to have its own page due to the sheer number of games. --Cgull 03:58, 6 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I can easily convert this list to table format, but someone else would have to fill out the empty fields. 2fort5r (talk) 21:42, 15 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Table of contents[edit]

I'm going to add a table of contents similar to the one on List of Amiga games: A-H to these articles in a few days. It's neater and the reader doesn't have to know there are two articles involved. 2fort5r (talk) 21:41, 15 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why was the edit reverted? Is there some reason text links are preferable to tables? 2fort5r (talk) 21:40, 28 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
