This is a collection of discussions on the deletion of articles related to Video games. It is one of many deletion lists coordinated by WikiProject Deletion sorting. Anyone can help maintain the list on this page.

Adding a new AfD discussion
Adding an AfD to this page does not add it to the main page at WP:AFD. Similarly, removing an AfD from this page does not remove it from the main page at WP:AFD. If you want to nominate an article for deletion, go through the process on that page before adding it to this page. To add a discussion to this page, follow these steps:
  1. Edit this page and add {{Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/PageName}} to the top of the list. Replace "PageName" with the relevant article name, i.e. the one on the existing AFD discussion. Also, indicate the title of the article in the edit summary, it is particularly helpful to add a link to the article in the edit summary. When you save the page, the discussion will automatically appear.
  2. You should also tag the AfD by adding {{subst:delsort|Video games|~~~~}} to it, which will inform editors that it has been listed here. You may place this tag above or below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.
Note that there are a few scripts and tools that can make this easier.
Removing a closed AfD discussion
Closed AfD discussions are automatically removed by a bot.
Other types of discussions
You can also add and remove links to other discussions (prod, CfD, TfD etc.) related to Video games.
Further information
For further information see Wikipedia's deletion policy and WP:AfD for general information about Articles for Deletion, including a list of article deletions sorted by day of nomination.

Lacks any indication of notability. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 15:28, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete Non Notable. Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 15:53, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
  • "Lacking an indication of notability" is not sufficient for deletion. Please ensure you are doing basic WP:BEFORE checks before nominating. The VG/SE does however indicate that this is not notable, because it lacks reliable sources covering the topic in detail. --Izno (talk) 21:40, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
    @Izno: Sorry, I've been too hasty with the opening of the discussion here. I should have explained that this is a follow-up to the following original PROD nomination: "No notability of game given among many iOS games. No notability found in Google search. PROD rather than CSD in case author can show notability."
    Thank you for the tip too; I should invest more time into these preparation steps, even when I believe that the article author was probably trying to promote an own product. Because even the possibly strongly positively biased statements, of someone who seemingly just registered to create an article about a commercial product, failed to convince me of notability, I decided to put this up for discussion. I had stumbled upon the PROD deletion in Huggle, had a look at the new edits and decided to convert the still-valid nomination of 49ersBelongInSanFrancisco into an AfD. I then notified 49ersBelongInSanFrancisco on their talk page that they might want to re-state their original arguments here. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:56, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
    It's fine. It's a clear NN--just be a little more liberal with your words in the nom next time. :) --Izno (talk) 00:12, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete fails WP:GNG due to a lack of in-depth coverage.--SamHolt6 (talk) 00:19, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete fails GNG as set forth in the original PROD, which was copied above.49ersBelongInSanFrancisco (talk) 05:00, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

I'm not sure if this particular adaption meets WP:GNG - the main cite seems to be to the developer's own webpage. I removed one link to an ebay shop selling the game, and one of the other cites is a user-generated resource. I wasn't able to find anything additonal to support WP:GNG and notability is WP:NOTINHERITED Seraphim System (talk) 06:45, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

I'm inclined to agree with Izno's comments above. Monopoly Game 2 seems to have received a review in Famicom Tsūshin. I think merging reliably sourced content into one article would be better. The developer should be fine for WP:RS to expand the article, but not as an independent source for notability purposes.Seraphim System (talk) 05:16, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Unnotable composer and nothing obvious to merge/redirect into. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 05:12, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Keep. I can find nothing to justify WP:GNG, even when I searched in Japanese language sources. However, he has contributed as composer to a number of notable games (which have their own coverage, and I did check they were notable), and hence satisfies WP:CREATIVE. See 3).

Seems that there is very little information on the subject and the person just seems like someone that isn't notable. startTerminal (haha wow talk page | startTerminal on irc) 04:07, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Keep if more sources can be found, otherwise move to WP:DRAFT space. BOZ (talk) 04:13, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

Delete - Moving the article to a draft does not help the fact that sources don't really exist about him. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 05:11, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Keep - There are sources about him, for example [1] this listing of books that he is editor or co-editor. In addition, he is not a video-game designer, he is a pen and paper RPG and board-game designer. K-pachs (talk) 08:19, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Keep - Notable game designer. Link to D&D Rules Compendium, clearly edited by Chris Sims: Rules Compendium (Dungeons & Dragons Edition 3.5) I agree that there should be more references added, though.
Update: List on Amazon with all the books that he edited. Come on, this is impressive! Interstellarpoliceman (talk) 08:25, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Keep... several of Sims' publications have unchallenged WP articles, but the author is not deemed worthy of his own WP article? --- Normosphere (talk) 09:40, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete and redirect to Extreme Paintball (which looks notable--for how bad the game was). This particular iteration doesn't appear to have reliable sources. --Izno (talk) 13:09, 19 April 2018 (UTC) Will reassess. --Izno (talk) 18:27, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment - @Izno: - I assume you meant Extreme Paintbrawl? Also, logically if this is being put up for AfD, Extreme Paintbrawl 2 should go with it (unless the reviews that are even worse (3rd worst ranked game)) give that one sufficient? The sources for both look pretty similar. I would imagine the paintbrawl 3 did exist, if all the others were there, but can't speak to that. Nosebagbear (talk) 13:57, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
    Oh, I may need to revise my comment after review then. I looked for "Extreme Paintball"... --Izno (talk) 18:27, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Reviews at IGN, GameSpot, and Igromania. I can fall either way here. This is at least a merge if not a weak keep, probably to Extreme Paintbrawl. --Izno (talk) 04:28, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Weak Keep - lacking as the article is, with three distinct sources, two of which are clearly in-depth, and a potential other source (my google didn't feel like translating) I feel that WP:NVG is satisfied - its notability is self-derived from multiple sources in its own right. I don't feel a merge is necessary. Nosebagbear (talk) 08:11, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

  • No, not too soon, but this is clearly a delete. No RS indicates that this game cannot demonstrate notability at this time. --Izno (talk) 19:02, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
  • It is the only 3d riichi videogame which is crossplatform and FOSS. Even though it is in an early stage, the game is playable, and if you compared to the others in the list of mahjong videogames it stands out. therefore I think the page won't be deleted. By the way I am not a developer, just a player who decided to create the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mahjongi (talkcontribs) 19:07, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
    We justify an article topic by its presence in reliable, secondary, independent sources that tell us why it is interesting. Your topic does not seem to have any of those sources. Do you know of some? If you do not, then it actually is not all that interesting for Wikipedia. --Izno (talk) 19:28, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Delete It is not notable and not referenced. It was active from 1997 but it became defunct in 2003. Then, Disney Interactive acquired the company in 2005. There is no source to prove it.
