Earlier, I made Fan Games a subcategory of Games. This straightens it up a little instead of having two separate categories. I think it would be a good idea to sort the rest of the games into separate subcategories (ie. SCUMM Games, Gob Games). Or, maybe even LucasArts SCUMM Games / Humongous Entertainment SCUMM Games. Any comments? -Clone2727 23:20, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
- I like the subcategory idea - it worked out well. However, now the games category is empty. I suggest that we re-add the Category:Games to each supported game, now that we have an unsupported games sub-category. That way people could come to Category:Games to look at a general list of supported games, and then go to the subcategories if they want to see what engine each supported game runs on.

- I think that would be a bit redundant. It would just be repeating each game. But, they could just look at the compatibility page for games supported in ScummVM. -Clone2727 21:55, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
- That leaves the Games:Category kind of useless - besides, the wiki includes games that are only compatible with ScummVM in the early stages, and therefore are not available for viewing on the compatibility page. The way it's set up now makes someone have to know what engine a particular game runs on in order to find out if scummvm supports a game, which seems to defeat the original purpose of category:games, which was to show which games scummvm supports.

- But, this isn't always the case. Simon the Sorcerer's Pinball will never be supported.
- You contradicted yourself there. You said "the wiki includes games that are only compatible with ScummVM in the early stages" but then you said "the original purpose of category:games, which was to show which games scummvm supports".
- Before we moved them to their engine/game subcats, the games page was just getting too large and it was listing too many games. -Clone2727 20:42, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
- Nice idea :) I think this page should be linked in the main navigation pane (currently no page links to it), together with the "Fan games" category. This would make it easier for users to locate the game they want. After all, not everyone knows which game engine supports each game. Also, I think that every game should be linked to this category, so that the user can easily return to it (although this might be avoided if this page is directly linked from the main links pane).
