Category talk:Games

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

This category is too broad. I think it should be abolished and/or renamed to "Windows Games", seeing as we also have "Mac Games". Remember a page can have more than one category, so, for example, Garry's Mod could go in "Windows Games", "Mac Games", "Sandbox" and "FPS". -Svetlana(talk) 13:52, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

It should stay as it is because this is a wiki for troubleshooting and tweaking games, so we have the 'games' category where there's tweaks specific to that game, and the hacks or tweaks section where there are individual tools. Categories such as Sandbox and FPS are useless as people will come here to fix their problems with the specific game you're looking for. --Blacksuga 14:10, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
I didn't really understand what you said but I can imagine you'd prefer Steam to just dump all games in a single alphabetical list regardless of genre, yes? -Svetlana(talk) 14:24, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
i think its fine as is, maybe we should have a separate Windows Category as well, but having a master group for All games is always good Mac games is just a sub category of this one. --Alphasite 14:26, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
What I meant was that people don't come here to browse for games, they come for specific troubleshooting for a specific game they already have in mind. So the only two useful categories we'd ever need is Tweaks and Games. And no, all my Steam games are organized according to their genres.
An alphabetical break down may be a good solution. Though some logic would be needed. Is Oblivion under "T" For "The elder scrolls" "E" for "elder" or "O" for "oblivion"?Addaboi 21:09, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
I strongly suggest using a similar notation that books use, such as "E" for "Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, The" or "Elder Scrolls, The: Skyrim". It worked out well enough back in the day when looking up game genie cheat codes for my SNES, searching for "Legend of Zelda, The" instead of "The Legend of Zelda" or "Zelda". People are smart enough to omit the first word if it's common. Certain short titles might not follow the convention though if they're "special" or short enough, such as a game titled "The Who".-DarkFoxTokoyami 10:29, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Most of the time, if not always, people come to fix a specific problem with a specific game. An alphabetical list is the best option imo. And we need to make sure that the search feature works well, and fast! --VaikomViking 15:15, 3 March 2012 (EST)
