Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Video games

This is a collection of discussions on the deletion of articles related to Video games. It is one of many deletion lists coordinated by WikiProject Deletion sorting. Anyone can help maintain the list on this page.

Adding a new AfD discussion
Adding an AfD to this page does not add it to the main page at WP:AFD. Similarly, removing an AfD from this page does not remove it from the main page at WP:AFD. If you want to nominate an article for deletion, go through the process on that page before adding it to this page. To add a discussion to this page, follow these steps:
  1. Edit this page and add {{Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/PageName}} to the top of the list. Replace "PageName" with the relevant article name, i.e. the one on the existing AFD discussion. Also, indicate the title of the article in the edit summary as it is particularly helpful to add a link to the article in the edit summary. When you save the page, the discussion will automatically appear.
  2. You should also tag the AfD by adding {{subst:delsort|Video games|~~~~}} to it, which will inform editors that it has been listed here. You may place this tag above or below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.
Note that there are a few scripts and tools that can make this easier.
Removing a closed AfD discussion
Closed AfD discussions are automatically removed by a bot.
Other types of discussions
You can also add and remove links to other discussions (prod, CfD, TfD etc.) related to Video games.
Further information
For further information see Wikipedia's deletion policy and WP:AfD for general information about Articles for Deletion, including a list of article deletions sorted by day of nomination.

Video games-related deletionsEdit

Shutdown of online gamesEdit

Shutdown of online games (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD | edits since nomination)
(Find sources: Google (books · news · scholar · free images · WP refs· FENS · JSTOR · NYT · WP Library)

This is a bit of a non-topic really, spun out into a short reflective essay. Obviously old online games get shut down, but if we’re going to have an encyclopedia article about that topic we need more than a couple of random examples. Mccapra (talk) 07:43, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

I’d be happy with that as an alternative to deletion, yes. Mccapra (talk) 07:58, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

Only references are a couple of reviews from a single publication, one of which is very, very tiny. Archive.org search also comes up with nothing. If there are additional reviews please let us know and I will gladly withdraw the AfD, but as it is, this is a very clear fail of WP:GNG and such a prolific article creator should know better? ᴢxᴄᴠʙɴᴍ () 11:31, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

  • Sources from a developer don't count towards notability, as they are WP:PRIMARY. Not that those really have much beyond a description of what the game is. ᴢxᴄᴠʙɴᴍ () 21:14, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Redirect to List of Macintosh games for now until more sources can be found. BOZ (talk) 12:35, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    I agree, but you're the article creator. Why did you publish the article in the first place? Sergecross73 msg me 17:52, 26 June 2022 (UTC)
    That also assumes that lists should include non-notable games. I think that most people would agree that games appearing on any (non-developer-specific) list in Wikipedia should either be bluelinked or redlinked (having article potential)? Otherwise the criteria for inclusion would be tremendously broad. Redirecting a non-notable game to a list is literally useless for readers, they may as well head to Mobygames. ᴢxᴄᴠʙɴᴍ () 21:11, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

No evidence of notability in article or online, just one mention in GNews[3], very few mentions of him in general[4]. Fram (talk) 14:08, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

No evidence of notability. Only a single source. Searches reveal very many hits but all appear to be social media, YouTube, blogs etc. There may be non-English sources available.

  • Speedy delete Per WP:G11 as the creator was a WP:SPA who only created articles about the company and its founder; it is unambiguously advertising/spam. ᴢxᴄᴠʙɴᴍ () 08:11, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Speedy delete both fails WP:GNG and was indeed created by an SPA. Best Alexandermcnabb (talk) 09:47, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

The article relies on non-notable announcements/press-releases, and very much on its website. Fails to meet WP:NCORP Bash7oven (talk) 07:16, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

also seems to be a cross-wiki spam Bash7oven (talk) 07:18, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
