Goals
The project aims primarily to:

  • improve Wikipedia's coverage of games by creating, expanding, and maintaining such articles
  • serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to games on Wikipedia
  • maintain the portal
Project Structure[edit]
Discussion

Issues concerning game related articles and topics are discussed on the main talk page.

Assessment

The Assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's game related articles. The resulting article ratings are used within the project to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work. This system will be used in the future to select official A-Class articles.

Cleanup

The Cleanup department focuses on improving the overall quality of Wikipedia's games articles, and their compliance with the policies and guidelines of Wikipedia. The cleanup effort is meant to reduce the amount of unnecessary content and articles within the WikiProject Games. It also aims to help in the progression of articles that require work to climb up the assessment scale.
