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 importance, and none of the cited sources provide significant coverage or otherwise hint at notability. Previous AfD is just painful to read, with the keep votes being textbook examples of WP:But there must be sources! and WP: Other stuff exists, colored with unhelpful ranting (e.g. "I just think it's totally unfair deleting it just because someone thinks it should be deleted"). Suffice to say I found nothing in there to make me doubt that this article should be deleted, and the state of the article has not improved in the least in the five years since it was last brought to AfD.

As the article itself notes, this game had only a very limited release. Three of the cited sources are simple database entries with no significant coverage, and the other three are used to source a digression on skiing etymology and do not even mention the article subject. Previous AfD has lots of off-topic ranting to wade through, but the keep votes seem to be based on three plainly flawed arguments. One is that the game is the spiritual predecessor to We Ski (not only is this unsourced, but the keep votes admit this claim is based on the logic that any game made by a company is by definition a spiritual successor to any previous game they made in the same genre). Two is that mentions in GameFAQs, Mobygames, and primary sources serve to establish notability. Three is that WP:Articles for deletion/Gaia Saver establishes a precedent (I find the "keep" rationales in that AfD flawed as well, and will be re-nominating it).

  • Delete — Primary sources do not establish notability on Wikipedia, and the database-like sources don't either. Nothing would be different if there were a relation with We Ski, as that doesn't establish notability on this subject either. ~Mable (chat) 19:51, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete - per my argument at the last AFD. I can't believe it was kept last time. I probably would have taken the last one to DRV had I known how that worked 6 years ago. Sergecross73 msg me 21:19, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Non-notable (due to lack of third-party sources), and has also been entirely unsourced since its creation in 2003. The article was also way too heavy on technical specification without explaining why it was important/needed to be stated (which I removed in some recent edits). I nominate this article to be redirected to chiptune, or any other article if somebody can think of a better one. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 20:12, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete - Being unsourced for thirteen years is a pretty strong indicator that GNG-meeting sources aren't coming. Between it being completely unsourced, and other Nintendo hardware-related articles being generally pretty well maintained, makes me think there wouldn't be any worth merging.

Article for an online video game racing league with no indication of meeting WP:GNG or of any WP:SIGCOV in third party sources. An article about the website which runs the league (Apex Online Racing) was previously deleted after AFD discussion in July 2016.

    • This isn't about harm, it's about the standards Wikipedia has set for what is included in the encyclopedia. An online racing league that receives no outside coverage is simply not notable (see WP:N). RA0808 talkcontribs 00:36, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Wikipedia is an encyclopedia of basically everything in the world. You can see that it is a RACING LEAGUE with links to the races. This is a RELIABLE source. There is nothing wrong with making an article on this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cjr17 (talkcontribs) 09:41, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
"Wikipedia is an encyclopedia of basically everything in the world." - Wrong. Read the policy page RA0808 linked for you.--Martin IIIa (talk) 13:20, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

    • You can't "make" something notable, it either is notable or it isn't. A league run by a group of online racing game players that has received no significant coverage in unaffiliated reliable sources does not meet the criteria for inclusion in Wikipedia. Again, please see WP:N and WP:YFA. RA0808 talkcontribs 23:12, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete I originally put a PROD tag on the article. I agree with the above: this does not meet the general notability criterion for inclusion. Pichpich (talk) 17:33, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete. Probably just a snow vote at this point, but I was unable to find anything either. All the sources in the article are YouTube videos or primary. Fails WP:GNG for these reasons. Anarchyte (work | talk) 06:05, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

  • For quick reference -
  • Delete not a notable game Jon Kolbert (talk) 01:50, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Jon Kolbert - I'm leaning that way myself, but can you explain why? Stances given without any real reason are usually discounted by the discussion closer. Just saying WP:NOTNOTABLE isn't worth much here. Sergecross73 msg me 17:37, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
  • While the fact that this game exists has been mentioned in a couple places, that in itself doesn't make it notable. Nearly all, if not all, of the sources treat it as if "oh, that's neat" and move on. Heck, there's probably quite a few news articles/blog posts floating around about that Redditor who ate a vinyl record milkshake because Kendrick Lamar didn't drop a second album - but that definitely doesn't in itself merit an Wikipedia article on him because he did something out of the ordinary, and neither does this game. As Czar states below, the best solution is just to include it in the game creator's article. Jon Kolbert (talk) 05:42, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Thank you for expanding your rationale. I think I prefer Czar's specific approach, but you definitely expanded your stance into something policy-based and helpful. Thanks for that. Sergecross73 msg me 12:59, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Merge to merritt k. I started to write a complete source analysis but why bother when there is an article for the game's creator? Write about it there and spin it out summary style only when warranted by the sourcing, which is currently thin. The best sources are Offworld (Boing Boing) and Polygon, neither of which go into enough depth to do justice to this game as its own topic. Nerd Approved (which is not a reliable source) repackages BB. The other sources are either primary to the topic or don't say more than a sentence about the game (passing mentions). Easy merge candidate. czar 05:21, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Merge per Czar. There's enough sourcing to verify basic details, but not write an article accurately depicting the subject. We do have a plausible merge target, plausible search term, and a source to give a basic definition at least, so I think merging is preferrable to outright deletion. Sergecross73 msg me 12:59, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
    • How much of it would you keep in the parent article? The appropriate weight for such a lightly covered work seems to me a list entry or at most a 1-2 sentence blurb. That already exists in the article. I don't really see the reasoning for merging what is left, rather than just removing it. - hahnchen 17:19, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
      • I agree that what exists in the article as of now is sufficient given the weight of the work. Any further expansion isn't really merited in this case. Jon Kolbert (talk) 17:31, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
        • I'd keep as much as pertains to the developer from the mentioned Offworld and Polygon sources. czar 02:54, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
        • Unless I'm glossing over something, Merritt's articles doesn't even define the game other than "a game about caring". I think we could at least add a sentence defining the game a little better than that, right? And as Czar mentioned, neither of the two actual RS sources discussed above (Polygon/Yahoo and Boing Boing) are used in the article. It's not like I'm advocating a special subsection for it or something. Just a better defining sentence or two written according to a third party source or two. Sergecross73 msg me 03:55, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
          • So if there are "two actual RS", then you should be !voting keep, and then having a non-AfD discussion about how to clean up the article, including merging it. WP:DINC Jclemens (talk) 04:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
            • @Jclemens: Merge is listed as an appropriate outcome at WP:Deletion process#Common outcomes. --Izno (talk) 12:12, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
              • Yes, merge is an acceptable stance at AFD, and nothing at DINC essay says otherwise. Come on, Jclemens, you're talking to a number of experienced editors here, not some newbies. Saying things like that is tantamount to WP:DTTR. We know how AFD works, thank you. Two minor, short sources about a subject is not some sort of obvious, "knock it out of the park, of course this subject is notable" type scenario. It's, quite frankly, teetering on the barest of bare minimums possible. Both sources are very short, and don't provide enough content to write much of an article. There's also a plausible merge target. Don't try to tell me merge isn't a valid choice here. It is. WP:DELETIONPROCESS clearly shows merge as a valid and common outcome at AFD, and WP:MERGE shows that it's a very clean-cut example of WP:MERGEREASON #3. Sergecross73 msg me 12:36, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
                • Sure, merge is an acceptable outcome... if GNG is not met. GNG is met, and none of NOT is triggered, therefore the right venue for a merge discussion is a talk page, not an AfD. Unless there's a reason articulated at WP:DEL-REASON to be here in the first place, and I contend that there is not, then any AfD outcome other than a closure without action is 'wrong'. Sure, the process has been applied incorrectly and inconsistently for so long by so many people with so many admins going along with it that regulars have come to accept 'merge' as a valid AfD outcome in many, many situations where it was never appropriate. Don't get me wrong, that's a ton better than deleting potentially encyclopedic content; that still doesn't mean it's a policy-compliant process and outcome. DTTR is a poor analogy, but if you think I'm talking down to you or anyone in the debate, you have my sincerest apologies. The fact is, the AfD culture is part of how Wikipedia drives away editors, and by reminding experienced editors that when what we do isn't what we say we should do, there's a problem. Cheers, Jclemens (talk) 16:36, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
                  • The whole basis of your argument is extremely shaky to begin with though - the premise that a mere two short sources establish notability is not a commonly held one. Even ignoring the fact that 2 isn't very many, they're also not particularly long, nor do they actually say much of substance about the subject. The rest of your argument is...nothing more than a personal theory - there's a long-running precedent to merge articles like this when they're short on content and sources, again, per WP:MERGEREASON. It's pointless to argue about venue anyways, it's equally likely to be merged at AFD or a merge discussion. Sergecross73 msg me 17:06, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
                  • I would not have nominated the article if I believed GNG had been met. I clearly do not believe the "this is a thing" style news articles constitute significant coverage. The coverage is on the level, as Kolbert argues above, as the viral reddit vinyl drinking guy. AfD culture rewards effort rather than addressing the subject, had this article been a stub with the same sources, I have no doubt that there would not calls for a merging. - hahnchen 13:15, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Does not meet WP:ENT and it is WP:TOOSOON, her role in Chaika, Isuca, Maken-ki are all supporting or minor characters. Maybe one major role in Date A Live II, but that's about it. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:22, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep. She has a decent work history and in the external link section I saw that she is listed in the Anime News Network which is a major news website for anime. I just found a IMDB page for her which I will add to the article in the external link section. Knox490 (talk) 04:46, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
IMDb is not a reliable source. Boomer VialHolla! We gonna ball! 05:03, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep - Her roles apparently are mainly supporting (I'm not sure, the only show of hers that I've actually watched so far is Date A Live), but given that those roles include roles in anime where she is among the show's theme song singers, perhaps those roles aren't as minor as you think. She also performed the opening theme for Triage X; although the single charted poorly (peaked at #92 on the weeklies), it did receive some coverage, such as this. Admittedly, coverage for her isn't spectacular (some sources include this, as well as this interview with her and a fellow voice actress), but there does appear to be just enough coverage, and enough roles, to establish notability. If consensus determines that she is not notable, I would suggest a redirect to Date A Live. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:38, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
Is there something besides Date A Live that the person is notable for? I see only one single ranked at #111 in Oricon [5] and no albums [6]. This wouldn't be enough to keep. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:31, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
How about Sky Wizards Academy? She's listed eighth out of eight among the main characters? Is that enough? AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:34, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
Passing WP:ENTERTAINER is somewhat questionable due to a lack of main roles (I'd say maybe she passes it, but barely). But it seems she does clearly pass WP:GNG for the coverage she's received in Japanese sources. Then Natalie and Animate Times hits seem promising.

  • Redirect - AngusWOOF By the way: either you or the article is wrong: Ban Yamato is not from Inazuma Eleven, he is apparently from Little Battlers Experience (the Inazuma Eleven appearance was apparently from some crossover special). I don't think that series is very popular, and I don't really see much coverage for Kubota, even in Japanese. She doesn't have any other major roles of note either. However, given that Little Battlers Experience is relatively recent, I don't see how Kubota isn't a possible search term, and as a such, a redirect shouldn't hurt. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 22:49, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
Narutolovehinata5 You're right. The Inazuma Eleven is a cross-over film with the LBX franchise. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:01, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete - I'm doubtful that this is a likely search term for anyone who wasn't already viewing the Little Battlers Experience article, and a check of the page view statistics confirms that there were minimal views prior to the launch of this AfD.--Martin IIIa (talk) 12:49, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
