Survival modeSurvival game – This article is talking about the genre and not a mode. --Anarchyte 09:56, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose. The article does seem to be discussing a mode of play offered by some games that offer other modes of play, not about games that only offer this mode of play. 209.211.131.181 (talk) 23:11, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
@209.211.131.181: All the games shown in the article (Left 4 Dead, Call of Duty: World at War, Plants vs. Zombies, Gears of War 2 and Minecraft are all "survival games". Survival does not mean zombies, ghosts, etc but instead trying to stay alive; which is what all those games are about. --Anarchyte 07:57, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
What does it mean exactly, then? I can't tell from your proposal. On the other hand, I can tell that most of the games listed in the article have multiple game modes, with one being singled out as "survival mode". 209.211.131.181 (talk) 08:03, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
@65.94.43.89: It has been suggested that it be moved to Survival game, not Survival video game. I'm unsure what you mean by that. --Anarchyte 07:57, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
It's just that, I oppose the proposal as proposed. If the intention is to include the word "game" in the title, then it should be renamed to survival videogame or survival video game. Videogames are not the only type of game that centers on survival. Indeed the apocraphyl "Game" is the purest type of survival game (as seen in much fiction and some anecdotal criminal reports and actual war crimes trials) -- 65.94.43.89 (talk) 08:14, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
