Space Quest V: Roger Wilco – The Next MutationSpace Quest V: The Next MutationWP:COMMONNAME. Wikipedia looks to be the only place on the Internet that refers to this game with "Roger Wilco" in the title. AllGame, PCGamer, GameSpot, etc. all use the shorter version. —Torchiest talkedits 05:01, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Support - Per usage in reliable sources. ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  15:28, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
  • To clarify, while I don't necessarily oppose Space Quest V, I strongly agree with BDD's point that keeping the subtitle adds consistency with other articles in the series; I also think there is no reason not to include the subtitle (even if sources sometimes shorten the title). ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  20:34, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
That's not exactly what I meant. I just want the titles in this series to be titled consistently. --BDD (talk) 20:41, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
I rephrased my statement above to avoid ambiguity. ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  23:40, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Move to Space Quest V per There is no other contender for that name, plenty of sources do omit the subtitle, and WP:SUBTITLE is pretty clear that we should omit the subtitle in such circumstances.  — Amakuru (talk) 15:30, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
    Change vote to Support as proposed. I had not considered the consistency clause in WP:CRITERIA until User:BDD pointed it out below, so it does make sense to leave the subtitle in for the present move. Suggest that the whole series be nominated for subtitle removal afterwards. Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 22:56, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Move to Space Quest V per WP:SUBTITLE.--Cúchullain t/c 19:21, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support as proposed. Let's do this as a first step and have a multi-move to remove the subtitles from the whole series if appropriate. For now, I'd prefer they be consistent. --BDD (talk) 18:15, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
See my King's Quest RM for an example of what I mean. --BDD (talk) 18:31, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Following the success of the King's Quest RM, my first choice is now Space Quest V, and a move of the other games accordingly. --BDD (talk) 18:49, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
It would also be my preference to move this article to the most MOS-compliant version now, and move the others to follow it, rather than having to go through another discussion.--Cúchullain t/c 22:02, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
