Is there any encyclopedic reason why we would be writing about games that have not actually been released? This type of article does not seem to fit the goals of citizendium. Chris Day 15:04, 31 March 2008 (CDT)

I can't agree! I am an almost-radical inclusionist. Articles about pop culture are fair game here. --Larry Sanger 15:16, 31 March 2008 (CDT)
Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti game articles, just wondering if this is more promotional than encyclopedic? Chris Day 15:33, 31 March 2008 (CDT)
What about our 'maintainability' standard, in the long run? Will anyone care about this article in, say, 20 years? I am in general inclusionist, but only of stuff that's going to have some lasting interest/utility. I also worry that too much popular culture, and not enough serious content, will put us in the same intellectual ghetto (common-perception-wise) as Wikipedia. J.
