Amount of detail in series article as opposed to in individual game articles

I'm currently unsure as to how much detail to put in this article regarding the individual games, and how much to save for the individual game articles themselves. My current thoughts are to give a brief summary of the plot as it stands at the start of the game, and details of where gameplay significantly differs from the rest of the series. Sometimes I wonder if it's still a bit too much for this article however, so any thoughts are most welcome. --Chris Key 20:06, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

This article brought back a lot of memories, thanks. I recall vividly the crushing difficulty of Treasure Island Dizzy as it appeared on my trusty Commodore 64. (There was also a part where Dizzy has to cross water by walking right as the boat he's on moves - when you reach the next screen, he drowns unless you immediately move him left, then right...) Anyway, I agree you can just summarise the differences but leave the details for other articles. John Stephenson 02:22, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
