Video Games as a Subculture?

Deadpooling, I can understand. Deleting the entire page itself seems excessive – especially considering that there was actual interest in developing an article. Can someone provide an explanation as to why that got deleted so suddenly?

Ah. That.

The thing about that page is that it was made for a single purpose – to cash in on the April Fool’s craze that happened this year. Random 21 (the guy who made the article that you linked to) said that the article that Gray Hoof started was already superior to the one he had made, if I remember correctly.

I discussed it with other mods before doing anything. We agreed that the original entry should be used, even if it was for KYMIRL. We’ve used KYMIRL entries as bases for regular entries before.

Alright, I guess me and Kung Fu Cthulhu are going to request an editorship to Random 21 and hopefully he’ll accept it.

That’s perfectly fine, and I get why you ended up going through with it. I wish that I could have saved the information that I wrote for that version of the page, though.

EDIT: I suppose that this would be as good a place as any to request that all content is moved to the KYMIRL page’s Image/Video Galleries.

I’d hate to doublepost, but I heard that there was a bit of a trouble with this article on the IRC page. People aren’t sure if this counts as a subculture or a culture in and of itself, and another issue of contention is whether it could work as a parent page. If I remember correctly, the consensus is that if this page is going to work, it needs to be more about the Memes and culture surrounding gaming than the history of gaming itself. Keeping this in mind, I’m only briefly writing about companies that are considered to be fairly important (Valve, Nintendo, EA, Sony, and Microsoft) and have their own articles on this site. I will stress that my focus will ultimately be on defining Memes related to gaming, though.
