[edit] needed?

Do we need this page? I think we already have a similar information as part of Games. Some of the information could be merged with the Games article, I suppose. wbwolf (t | ed) 03:20, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I like these "Minor Stuffs" pages. They allow us to have info on various semi-related minor objects all in one convenient place, rather than scattered around on two dozen tiny one-line pages that are generally rarely viewed and almost never updated. That said, this one could probably stand some cleanup... possibly a more standardized "table" format with screenshots, not unlike Minor Foods and Minor Companies. -YKHi.

Yeah, you're right. Keep it. Religious Corn   21:38, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
The reason why I suggested this article was so that these video games that are mentioned, but not played or described, have somewhere to go on the wiki. Blood Bleeder, Head Chopper 2 and Typing Tutor Turbo are all too insignificant to deserve their own articles, yet their information needs to go somewhere. I feel that the logical solution is to group these type of games on one Minor Article. We're allowed Minor Foods and Minor Companies, so why not Minor Video Games? Yes, it drastically needs to be cleaned up (the "slumber party" video games should be grouped together and images still need to be added), but there's still a lot of good useful information on here. Who knows, maybe TBC will think up more video game concepts in the future. Keep.The Chort 21:48, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
I think that the two articles should be distinct, but I agree with wbwolf that there is an overlap with Games#Non-Playable Games. However, I think that section should be moved into this separate page. Every other game on that page is playable, and the non-playable ones don't really fit. Finally, I would recommend that we revise the lead paragraphs of both these articles to emphasize that Games is about playable games, and Minor Video Games is about minor non-playable video games, with prominent links to all relevant pages (each other, Videlectrix, etc).
So, merge Games#Non-Playable Games with this page. Trey56 23:50, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
I agree. That said, I'm gonna take a (probably) rather controversial stance here... and say that all the individual pages for minor unplayable Videlectrix games should be merged with and redirected to this page. None are really any more significant or have any more content/info than the Slumber Party games, and several haven't actually even been featured or mentioned on homestarrunner.com, at that. But that's just my take, not being a big fan of a bunch of minor pages... -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 22:35, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Clean up

Ok, I've added a table to organise all the information, based on the template from Minor Foods. There are still a few more things we need to do:

  • Upload and add large, clear images of all the video games, preferably of the covers.
  • Think about adding some more content/description/entires to the article.
  • Decide whether we need to replace the content of the entries for Blistergeist, Clapping Party and Typing Tutor Turbo with See main article: Link to avoid a violation of Once and Only Once.

I think this one's cleaned up enough to remove the tag (so I will). There's still the question of whether we want to add more entries to this page (unplayable Videlectrix games, for example), but I don't think we need the cleanup tag for that. Trey56 21:51, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Videlectrix (And Others)

There are a large number of minor, unplayable Videlectrix games out there, each with their own articles. Space Shipper, Salad Daze, Lewis Rudkin SX: England, etc. Maybe they could wind up here too? They don't necessarily have to be merged, most of them, but they could probably stand inclusion.

Also, there are some other games barely mentioned even a little bit, like the two other Sega tapes seen in slumber party (Throat Rip and Saliva Quest). Even if the Videlectrix ones stay separate, those two—and any others in existance similar to them, though none come to mind at the moment—should find their way here. --DorianGray 02:47, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree with this, and I think that it would help if we divide the page into sections: a section for Slumber Party Video Games, a section for Minor Videlectrix Games, and a general section. Trey56 02:51, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, on second thought, I'm not sure about the Videlectrix games... after perusing some of the above pages, they actually work pretty well on separate pages, and the template at the bottom makes it easy to navigate between them. At any rate, I still agree that we should add in the other non-Videlectrix nonplayable games. Trey56 00:08, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I did say they didn't necessarily have to be merged. They can just get a line that goes:
Main article: Salad Daze
Or something. They are, at least, minor. --DorianGray 00:20, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
No. The game concepts on the Videlectrix website should be kept separate to the minor games that appear in the emails. Most people aren't aware of those not yet playable Videlectrix games, and I don't want to lump them with this article, blending one form of fiction with another. At the very least, we could just expand the Videlectrix Games section on the Videlectrix article, perhaps adding a gallery or table? – The Chort 14:27, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Gears of War

I happened to see the limited edition box for Gears of War, and it looked a lot like the box art for Blood Bleeder: compare this to this. Could this be intentional, or is it just a coincidence? Trey56 17:38, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Hmm...They do look kind of...the same. I can't tell if it's a coincidence or a refrence. I also think this discussion should be moved here. --hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:27, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
