To Do List
Hello, I've written the majority of the content in this article, and sadly it's not quite what it could be. In the next few weeks I'll have the time to flesh it out more. If you want to help improve the article that's awesome! Go ahead. If you're not sure where to start I've decided to make a todo list of some important things the article needs.TheAltarbo (talk) 05:33, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
The article is lacking images in a few important places:
- no main image at the start
- no fourth gen console
- no image for hu cards or online
It's bards for me to see my own mistakes, so if you see them feel freed to fix them.
I've begun adding small recap tables at the end of each console generation. I think this is far more readable than having literally a hundred dates over he course of a few paragraphs. I you want to create some of these tables , use the bird generation as a template. Each console should link to its main article and they should be listed bro illogically in order of release.
ImmediAtely before or after the media section, there should be an input section done in the same format. There's no need to list all video game controllers ever, but it needs sections for:
- game pads
- light guns
- motion control
Some kind of merge needed?
I came across https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_video_games. It seems, at least from the 3rd Generation, it is just another iteration of what is posted here. Always rough to edit one for a while, then find out there's another place with similar info... and both seem to be linked in quite a few places. Seems that page is rather excessively long, and this one need a little more filling out. I have no history with merging and such, but it would seem everyone would be benefited with some kind of merging\upgrading organization between these two articles?

- Are you suggesting merge Video game console with History of video games? If so, I'm not sure that's going to fly. That's a pretty big action you'll need to have some group input over (more than just a couple of other editors). Maybe take the question over to the Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject Video games if you don't get any discussion here. BcRIPster (talk) 16:32, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
