If you would like to join our project, please add your username to the members page.

The project aims primarily to:

  • serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to games on Wikipedia
  • maintain the portal

Project StructureEdit


Issues concerning game related articles and topics are discussed on the main talk page.


The Assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's game related articles. The resulting article ratings are used within the project to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work. This system will be used in the future to select official A-Class articles.


The Cleanup department focuses on improving the overall quality of Wikipedia's games articles, and their compliance with the policies and guidelines of Wikipedia. The cleanup effort is meant to reduce the amount of unnecessary content and articles within the WikiProject Games. It also aims to help in the progression of articles that require work to climb up the assessment scale.


Anyone can participate in this WikiProject. You may indicate your participation by adding the userbox {{User WPGames}} to your user page, shown on the right.

A userbox is also available to display this barnstar on your userpage: {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Games/Award Userbox}}. The userbox is handy if you need to save space on the screen. A ribbon alternative is also available (shortly).
