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.

With only Ahiru as Nanae Kato's main role, and little to no news coverage and strong references, the subject in question is clearly not notable enough to warrant her own independent article. --Sk8erPrince (talk) 04:41, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Weak delete She plays title characters in Croket!, Princess Tutu, and the not-so-notable Noramimi. Not sure if that's good enough to keep around or write any sort of article. Croket!'s had 78 episodes in Japan. She plays some supporting/recurring characters in Inazuma Eleven and Inazuma Eleven Go. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 19:27, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete He voices Mihawk in One Piece who is a notable but not regularly recurring character until late in the series. None of the other roles stand out on the anime side, mostly supporting, minor recurring and guest characters that have little chance of being listed in the main cast list. However, he voices Taishi Ci and Zhang Fei in Dynasty Warriors franchise, which has at least ten titles, but it's a franchise with typically 30-50 characters per title, so the video game side should be investigated. I see no evidence he stars in Transformers or Turn A Gundam. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:49, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment I only see one extremely strong notabie role as Nagisa / Cure Black in the Pretty Cure franchise. In the first Pretty Cure! series, there are only two magical girls, Cure White and Cure Black. She's Cure Black. She reprises her role in films and all the All Stars films and specials. She is also the main character Ange in Koi suru Tenshi Angelique but it isn't as notable. In Mobile Suit Gundam 00 she voices Sumeragi Lee Noriega who's a major character. She voices Anri Yoshino in Sakura Wars: New York who looks to be supporting. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:19, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Keep Seiyu Awards is a major award for voice actors in Japan, and it is now sourced. ANN shows 74 news articles about Hatano, which suggests more than just plain cast announcements in terms of notable roles in notable productions. VADB shows 314 roles. [2]. In Fairy Tail he voices Gajeel Redfox, a major character in the series. He is also the main character in Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, Josuke Higashikata in some of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure games, and Rufus in Street Fighter. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 14:24, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
74 news articles from ANN? Suuuuuure. How about you find a way to reference at least half of those articles in a more detailed biography? If you could manage that, I'll withdraw this AFD. --Sk8erPrince (talk) 15:08, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep per AngusWOOF. Passes WP:ANYBIO for having received a significant award, and passes WP:ENTERTAINER for having significant roles in multiple notable works. Calathan (talk) 15:23, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, ok. Limited sources is still a thing, though. What happened to the importance in writing more detailed biographies? 2 sentences, that's it? You guys could do better than that if you really intend to keep the article. --Sk8erPrince (talk) 16:24, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
AFD is not cleanup. Articles are kept based on the notability of the subject, not based on the quality of the current article. It's true that the article could be improved by adding more sources.

You need strong, reliable sources to assert the subject's notability; what part of that do you not understand? The quality of the article DOES matter; how else would I know whether or not the subject is actually notable? Also, I'll have you know, different Wikipedians specialize in different areas. Did I offend you for not specializing in the field of expansion? Well, did I? I'd like to think that I specialize in nominating articles for deletion, and forming arguments to state my case. When I nominate an article for deletion, it is YOUR burden of proof to assert the subject's notability, not mine. Do understand that I don't have that responsibility. As the nominator, my duty is to see that the article eventually gets deleted, though I don't think Wataru's article is going to be erased due to some of the alleged references you people claim to have. So far, Angus has added the Seiyu Awards citation. I'd really like to see more, so that I may be inclinded to withdraw this AFD. --Sk8erPrince (talk) 17:23, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Again, read WP:BEFORE it states: "Before nominating: checks and alternatives" "Carry out these checks". WP:BURDEN applies to editors who add/remove content from articles, and not to the AfD process. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 17:44, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Sk8erPrince, please see WP:BATTLEGROUND. It isn't your duty to get the articles deleted now that you've nominated them. Instead, the purpose of an AFD is to have a discussion to determine if the article should be kept, and you should be equally happy with the subject being shown to be notable and kept as with the subject being shown to be non-notable and deleted.

I appreciate your identifying stub articles with unsourced filmographies. We really do need more effort on finding which of these are worth keeping around and which ones don't have much potential for anything. I'm trying to retain ones that should meet WP:ENT and could use a decent writeup, and ones where the actors have won a top award for their field would be worth digging into.

Weak keep 274 roles in VADB [6] and not on obscure things like adult visual novels. Starring roles as Mitsunori Kugayama in Genshiken, Chairman Harabote in Kinnikuman: Ultimate Muscle, Lorenzo in Ristorante Paradiso, Gilles de Rais in Drifters. He's also in a bunch of supporting roles for shows Battle Spirits, First Love Limited, Jormungand, Kanokon, Valkyria Chronicles, Yes PreCure5, and Yu-Gi-Oh1 5D. A bunch of villains for One Piece. [7] Reason I listed as weak is that yes, there's not much in secondary interviews unless you dig into a bunch of the Japanese articles. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 15:28, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
All starring roles are from niche, non-notable anime. The number of roles Kenji did is irrelevant; I still fail to see in what way he is known and notable for. Again, even with your claim regarding existing interviews, I don't see them on the article. Non-notable actors do not deserve their own article. --Sk8erPrince (talk) 16:11, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Redirect to Best Way, the publisher. There doesn't seem to be any significant coverage of the game in reliable sources. I tried a few variations of search terms, including publisher, developer, and "men of war", which is a previous game the Wikipedia article references. A redirection will preserve the content for when this is released and (hopefully) becomes notable. I guess deletion is alright, too, but the publisher will probably attract a few reviews based on their previous titles. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 17:16, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

This is a non-notable freeware game. Coverage of this game is almost non existent and the only references to it are download links. There is no reliable source which ever did a review or even looked at this game. It has been created with an open source game-maker software. The "price" it won was a non notable award by the organisation which created the game-maker software. The "company" (not an actual company it seems) of the game has been defunct since about 10 years after it created 4 similar freeware games (and their WP-page has been deleted by an AFD too). The article fails WP:GNG therefore. The game also fails WP:NVIDEOGAMES too, as no significant (the 2 'reviews' of the game in the article are on blog-like non RS sources) coverage of this game exists. The only thing which comes close to that is an extremely short 4-sentence blurp on the borderline-RS Adventure Gamers website. There was a previous AFD 10 years ago, but they never established actual notability by our guidelines, and it seemingly went to 'keep' because editors apparently expected this game and its sequel to become much larger.

The list that makes up the majority of the article would violate WP:GAMECRUFT even in its parent article. I can't imagine this being a likely search term either.

  • Keep - Kyoko is a major character in terms of plot in the anime series Is This a Zombie?. She also provides the voice for Hecate in Shakugan no Shana (seasons 2-3), these would pass WP:ENT as they are two major antagonist roles. I also found this: [10], Constant Contact isn't a minor thing. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 17:28, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Weak Keep the roles mentioned seem to qualify subject. I'm close to thinking WP:TOOSOON but leaning keep. Will watch this discussion. ArchieOof (talk) 14:09, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete as IMDb itself actually summarily states her works and there's nothing actually substantial or major to actually suggest independent notability; there's no inherited notability about anything from the listed films, if it means there would not then be a both substantial and improved article of her own.

  • Keep In just a few clicks I found a good number of online sources about the subject. Passes WP:GNG.--Paul McDonald (talk) 17:35, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
What are those good number of sources? I've only seen cast announcements outside of the one interview. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 01:17, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
Such as? anyone can say there are good sources but if you don't supply them how can we believe you or trust their neutrality or reliability?
  • Weak keep: Substantial filmography, adequate sources. Voice actors don't get coverage live film actors do, so I'd say she passes GNG for her field. Would like to see source material used to improve article, though. Montanabw(talk) 20:44, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
There are a few flaws in your argument. The filmography is a matter of opinion sure. While the sources are fine they only serve as confirmation of those roles, not the notability of the article's subject. Voice actor coverage has been sufficient for many years, easily long enough to cover the subject's time in the industry, never mind that you are assuming live action actors are all notable.. Giving a pass based on her field as if it somehow should have lesser requirements than any other actor is misguided.SephyTheThird (talk) 20:23, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete No evidence of notability, cast announcements generally are just that and do not denote or suggest merit.SephyTheThird (talk) 20:23, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Delete It is true that voice actors generally have less coverage. (Actually quite a few of them do have coverage, but many of them are in fan websites which are not exactly RS for our purpose). The way to decide notability is to look at their contributions. If they voiced any major role in an anime I tend to give them a pass. The problem here is that the subject has done a bunch of minor roles, none of which are exactly significant. Considering the lack of coverage and the lack of a significant role, I am going with a delete here. --Lemongirl942 (talk) 15:33, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Btw, I have not been able to locate any of the sources being talked about in the discussion. --Lemongirl942 (talk) 15:33, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Fan websites tend to have primary source interviews, which only help beef up some self-published facts about the person like where they went to high school, or what is their favorite part of voice acting, but doesn't establish whether they are notable since they tend to grab any upcoming voice actor for an interview. The interview for The Final is over at BridgeThink [11] That one's got a little more credibility, coming from the general acting/production industry. But still, that's about it, and it only helps her notability for The Final. She's cast in a web series called Morganville that itself barely has notability for being an adaptation of a book series: The_Morganville_Vampires#Morganville:_The_Series [12] and another web series that isn't Wikipedia-notable called Throwing Stones AngusWOOF (barksniff) 18:21, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment I am not sure about how notable but she did win a "Staff Choice Award for Voice Actress of the Year at the 4th Annual BTVA Anime Dub Awards. [13] - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 21:18, 27 September 2016 (UTC) [14]
I'm a bit on the fence for that one as BTVA staff choice is a nice accolade for their resume, and the voice actors do brag about being selected. But it doesn't give the winner any physical awards and there's no award ceremony like Annie Award or NAVGTR awards. The BTVA People's Choice one is non-notable as it's a user-generated poll. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 21:24, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Well the only other one I could find is a "Fright Meter" award. [15] I will continue trying to look for interviews. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 21:31, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
