Click here to request a video game article.
Articles require significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject.
Optional: Please sign your request after creating it as it will help the person notify you if the article is created/the request is declined.

If you think an article about video games should be added to Wikipedia and know that it meets the inclusion criteria above, please list it below with URL links to the reliable sources that prove its notability (e.g., reviews or dedicated coverage from IGN or Polygon, but not forum posts, blogs without a professional staff, or the official website of the subject). Please do not add games or developers that do not yet meet this notability criterion, as they will be deleted; instead help us work on another current article and remember to add the game/developer if they meet the criteria in the future. Once an article is created, please remove the request. Please see Wikipedia:Articles for creation for more information on what articles are acceptable. Thank you.

If you placed a request here that was since removed, it likely did not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline, and is not a fit topic for an article at this time.

October 2012[edit]

Debatable. Their kickstarter was cancelled and it seems like the only reliable sources might be about the cancellation. Samwalton9 (talk) 13:08, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Failed Kickstarter isn't notable enough for its own article, but the company is. Probably best to have all their products on the company article. - hahnchen 12:07, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: @Hahnchen: I'm pretty sure you're talking about this company for "Loot Drop". Here are the references I could find using a quick google search: [1](about the failed kickstarter) [2](Kickstarter) [3](Kickstarter) [4](Kickstarter) [5](Kickstarter) [6](Kickstarter) [7](Tag). This is why I removed this request twice, I will not remove it again but instead let you decide if you want to leave this up given that I've researched the top, in full detail, now. --Anarchyte 09:02, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

There's a japanese article and it seems like there could be japanese sources, so I don't see any rush to remove this. Sam Walton (talk) 10:22, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
Official Japanese product page: Konami 58.166.69.49 (talk) 19:06, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

  • UMG Gaming - New gaming league partnering with MLG and strongly supported by the community, may be hard to find information, but there are articles out there. They played part of an interesting issue with MLG shutting down their live broadcast of Call of Duty during a live event, then later partnering with MLG. Article could be tied to MLG, Bill S.978, and twitch.tv VG247 [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18]

June 2014[edit]

  • MAGES. is a large Japanese media company with interests in video games, music, and other media. It has an extensive article in the Japanese-language Wikipedia here: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAGES
    • Potentially, though the article would require a good look at japanese sources. Some English language source mentions though: [19], [20]. Sam Walton (talk) 16:08, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

  • The Wizard (2014 video game) is turn-based dungeon-puzzler developed by Hypnotic Owl and released in 2014. It can be played for free using an up-to-date browser on PC, smart phones and tablets. For additional infos see their Presskit
  • Alternativa is an adventure video game by Centauri Production.
  • Void Destroyer is an indie space simulator game that is based on Homeworld. It is available on Steam Early Access. It combines real time strategy with first-person shooter.
  • Circulets A local multiplayer mobile game from Indian game developers Hashstash that involves two players playing on the same device, collecting tiny colored circles against each other. The game has been awarded "Most Innovative Game" at the Indie Prize Asia 2013 awards organised at Casual Connect Asia 2013 conference. At the 6th Best App Ever awards organised by 148Apps, the game was also awarded the third place in the "Best Casual Game" category, losing out only to Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans. The game is available for iOS, Android, and Blackberry 10. [28], [29], [30]
  • Midnight City (Publisher) Majesco Entertainment has founded a new indie publishing brand called Midnight City.

He also created Ir/rational Redux,[5][6] and worked on Binary Domain,[7] Driver: San Francisco and Lost Horizon. Here's a ref for the nomination.[8] Develop mentions him here and here. Apparently, Rock, Paper, Shotgun also talked with him in 2008.[9] But, yeah, most of this is about his games and not about him. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 13:55, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
Currently a redirect. --Anarchyte 09:38, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
I propose we remove all recent entries by Coin945 that only have Metacritic links. This is not an overview of games listed at Metacritic that do not have Wikipedia pages. 'It has a page at Metacritic and not at Wikipedia' is not enough to justify spamming this page with entries. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 13:11, 25 December 2014 (UTC)
If a game has a Metacritic page, it means it has been reviewed by at least 4 notable critics, thereby justifying its notability. I have already received permission to add the games here. I am using this page for its intended purpose. If you want the page to be nice and short again, then I guess you'll have to start creating some of these articles... :D--Coin945 (talk) 02:28, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
It's more likely I'll write a script that will find every single game with four or more reviews on Metacritic that does not yet have a Wikipedia article, and then paste all those (tens of?) thousands of games here. That would be way more effective to prove my point. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 07:02, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Could you legit actually do that? It would create a huuuge list, but it is a valuable list nonetheless. It would near guarantee the creation of articles on all notable video games within the last x years without any being left out. It could be a subpage from here.--Coin945 (talk) 14:53, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

VG247 Review PCGamer Review Kotaku Review RockPaperShotgun Review Creator Website
A remake of DayZ built in the Doom engine. Reviewed by a number of gaming sites which should prove it's credibility. I'm involved with the project so cannot write the article myself. Thanks in advance for contributing.

I'll have to look closer into it later, but looks like there's enough for at least a stub. Supernerd11 Firemind ^_^ Pokedex 06:30, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

A game made by level 5 and is on a lot of consoles and deserves a page.

Possible, but news kinda died out outside Japan after launch. Updated to Wonder Flick R (ワンダーフリックR) in August 2014 (not separate articles please). [127][128][129] Peculiarly no JAWP article. 野狼院ひさし u/t/c 15:33, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Card RPG by COLOPL where player answers trivia questions to attack. Started in Japan as "クイズRPG 魔法使いと黒猫のウィズ" (lit. Quiz RPG: Wiz the Magic User and Black Cat) and recently entered (Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau) Chinese markets as "問答RPG 魔法使與黑貓維茲" (same lit. as Japanese). [130][131] One of the top downloaded and grossing mobile games. [132]

Might be possible: [133] [134] (I am not the nominator) --Anarchyte 05:09, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

A game here 100 players points lasers at a screen which are picked up as red dots in the game, They work together to defeat enemies and complete goals.[10][11] [12]

February 2015[edit]

  • Synchronica (video game) (シンクロニカ?), upcoming arcade rhythm game by Bandai Namco, expecting June 2015 release. Good reportage from JAEPO 2015 appearance. Not sure why promotion has to tag along with Taiko no Tatsujin though. [135][136][137]

April 2015[edit]

May 2015[edit]

Doesn't really seem possible, here's all I could find: [150] [151] [152]. Anarchyte (work | talk) 23:42, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Rambo (2008 video game), an arcade lightgun game released by Sega in 2008. Directed by the director of the first three House of the Dead games. Links: MobyGames, IMDB.
  • Artifex Mundi: Game creator company for many online PC video games that include hidden object findings.

July 2015[edit]

August 2015[edit]

  • Heir of Zendor (Japanese title Gotha II: Tenkuu no Kishi) - Sega Saturn game from 1996 by Koei
  • Cars: Fast as Lightning This Windows Store and mobile app replaced the World Of Cars Online. It allows gamers to create their own version of Radiator Springs, unlock characters, and race others from all around the world online.
  • Super Burnout, Motorcycle racing game for the Atari Jaguar.

September 2015[edit]

  • Vaas Montenegro (currently a redirect), the famous antagonist from Far Cry 3. He has got plenty of independent coverage.[156][157][158][159][160][161] AdrianGamer (talk) 07:45, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Piposh Series of adventure games. Very prominent in Israel.
    No outstanding English sources found for the non-Israeli understanding editor here. Note that Israeli sources can be used (if someone would so kindly to interpret them) to satisfy notability at work, so please provide some. 野狼院ひさし u/t/c 09:07, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • DragonBox, currently suffering redirects to TV/manga series Dragon Ball content from Dragonbox and Dragon Box links, has significant coverage as one of the most successful educational games we've had,[162][163][164][165] and with their Geometry game is turning into a series,[166] but still does not have a page on Wikipedia.[167] BlinksTale (talk) 06:40, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

October 2015[edit]

We Know the Devil : sources at https://datenighto.com/game/we-know-the-devil (game designers). Further independent sources: http://www.wired.com/2015/09/we-know-the-devil/ http://www.afterellen.com/entertainment/455619-know-devil-gorgeous-disturbing-queer-game http://boingboing.net/2015/09/15/we-know-the-devil-is-a-horror.html http://feministing.com/2015/09/24/review-we-know-the-devil-is-a-horror-game-about-community-and-survival/ http://mammonmachinezeal.tumblr.com/post/124954479974/we-know-the-devil-a-group-relationship-horror

Anything from tumblr is out of the question. Wired and BoingBoing are good. Afterellen and Feministing are questionable. GamerPro64 03:15, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Urban Trial Freestyle : "A motorcycle stunt game, Urban Trials brings players to abandoned districts of a city where speed, agility and ability to improvise are the key to massive scores."

November 2015[edit]

January 2016[edit]

  • Amplitude (2016 video game) - There is information on this game on the Amplitude page, but seeing as how it is a full sequel, it deserves its own page.
    • It's not a sequel, it is a remake. It should not have a separate page given how small the article on the main game is. --MASEM (t) 03:19, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
    • It should have its own page. That the original article is small just means the remake coverage is already in WP:UNDUE territory. - hahnchen 23:59, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
      • No, the original is "small" but not stubby-small. There's enough far under WP:SIZE that the remake can go into it without worry, fairly balancing both. --MASEM (t) 00:15, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
  • "Tozai Games" - This was a prominent publisher back in the NES and SNES era and would be nice to be able to read an article about them and the games they published one of the most famous being Spelunker (video game).
  • "Metal Rage" - A DOS game of 1996 from Titus Software a long-lost childhood favorite of mine. I'm sure there are others who would like to find this little gem too. [184] [185]
  • "ACE 2 (video game) - A First person Flight simulator from Cascade Games. Released in 1987 on Amstrad CPC, Commodore 16/Plus 4, Commodore 64, PC (DOS) and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Designed and programmed by Ian Martin. Graphics by Damon Redmond. Music by Rob Hubbard. This game is a sequel to (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ace_(video_game)). [www.lemon64.com/games/details.php?ID=43] [www.thelegacy.de/Museum/3565/]

February 2016[edit]

  • "Bionic Games" - a video game company that has produced a few hits that deserves it own page.
  • "Infectonator Series" - A series of popular zombie video games created by Toge Productions that has garnered a significant amount of attention. Includes the games:
  1. Infectonator (PC)
  2. Infectonator World Dominator
  3. Infectonator 2
  4. Infectonator Survivors
  5. Infectonator (ios)
  6. Infectonator Christmas Edition
I think this series is noteworthy.
  1. Tower of Heaven. Tower of Heaven Review
  2. Pause Ahead
  3. Overpowered
  4. The game Katana ZERO is currently in development. Katana ZERO
I think this series is way more noteworthy than the one I did above.

IGN review, GameSpot review. This one should be doable if someone can get hold magazines listed on Mobygames since Play, Edge, EGM and GamePro are all reliable sources. --The1337gamer (talk) 22:22, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
