Better as a Category[edit]

Hmm, would this be better as a category? -- KneeLess 06:07, 18 Sep 2004 (UTC)

This topic comes up often on list pages. Until categories allow for item attributes to be pulled from their articles (i.e. Developer, Publisher, Release Date) lists provide a useful way to handle these data sets. This should not dissuade you from ensuring the listed games are also part of a Sega 32X category.

Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure[edit]

It most certainly was on 32X.

Sega Project Assessment[edit]

This article came up on the new requests for assessment at Wikiproject Sega (better known as The Sega Project, and so I'm here on behalf of the department to assess the article. First let me compliment what is done properly here.

  • For the information given, the list is comprehensive and gives lots of information.
  • The list is easy to read and understand.

That said, there are several things that need work. Here are a few pointers:

  • In the opening paragraph, lack of proof for some games is mentioned, yet the list doesn't cite any sources anyway. Find some sources and flesh out the list, you don't have to be too narrow with it. Use inline citations if you can.
  • Correct run-on sentences and other grammatical errors in the opening paragraph.
  • The opening paragraph is supposed to be a comprehensive summary of the contents of the list, but it appears to be written more or less like a guide to read this particular list.
  • Your "source" at the bottom could use a citation template and show what exactly it's citing. See WP:CITET for more information on how to use a citation template.

Okay, now for the final grade: At the Sega Project we use the List-class for lists, unless it's a high quality list, when the featured list (FL) class is used. This article is List-class, and of high-importance. It has the potential to be a featured list with some work, but it has a way to come before that can happen. If you improve it and want me to take another look, just put the article back on the New Requests at the assessment department page. Redphoenix526 (talk) 23:25, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

More precise dates?[edit]

Couldn't more precised release dates be indicated in the table? Kariteh (talk) 08:12, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

I couldn't find them. As far as I know, they're not out there on any reliable source. Red Phoenix flame of life...protector of all... 03:46, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

wolfenstein 3d?[edit]

how come the homebrew of the game is listed? other systems have tons of homebrew yet are not listed.

Dead refs in Canceled game list[edit]

As Allgame is around no more, all seven games listed in the canceled-section are not sourced. The Wikipedia articles of their respective franchises don't even mention them. Are these seven games even real? ~Mable (chat) 10:27, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Then I assume these archived links should also be put in the citation, for user's ease? ~Mable (chat) 11:30, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Right. Use archiveurl= and archivedate= (i.e. {{Cite web |url= |archiveurl= |archivedate=5 July 2015 |accessdate=5 July 2015 |title=Example |work=Through the Looking Glass }}) — Chris Woodrich (talk) 13:25, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

The 32X doesn't have a 3D graphics processor.[edit]

In the sense of specialized hardware to assist drawing 3D graphics, or really any graphics primitives (triangles, etc), the 32X has no hardware of the sort. It has a framebuffer and if you wanted to bend things slightly you could say it has hardware image decompression, but it doesn't even have a blitter. It is a standard myth that the 32X has some sort of graphics accelerator, which must have been repeated in that book. -- (talk) 18:11, 24 July 2015 (UTC) (Blah2)
