  1. I for one am increasingly confused by at least some of your points too, since the lists are designed for people who plan to purchase the games. And to the best of my knowledge, key-only stores like G2A have never meant much to anything in PCGW's history, especially when you yesterday on Discord argued to stick to curated stores only. • "(…) it lists Pressure that both has a separate release through GamersGate (…)" I'll look into to which extent I can add DRM-free games from those storefronts as a part of the query on the storefront exclusivity lists. Give me 20min.
  2. When comparing with other lists of delisted games: • Ensuring that queries also exclude games that are delisted (instead of never-present) from other stores, sounds like something that'd be more suited to a hypothetical "Games that have always been exclusive to retail copies" list. • "Available_from_historically" also includes all games in "Available_from", as per https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Special:Drilldown/Availability, which would make it possible to reduce the query criteria in the post above by around 40%.
  3. On analysis, I think the query failed because the page limit was set to 1,000. Changing it to 800 seems to make it work again. I also figured that games that were on key-seller stores (i.e. Humble, Amazon, Gamesplanet, GamersGate) would be excluded from that list too, in contrast to what the case is on other exclusivity lists.
  4. I'm technically siding with Stuttgart on this, even if only because dpbolvw is frequently used in various malware redirection trains (i.e. when you click on an old link, and suddenly the browser changes between 10 sites in 5 seconds, and the arrival point is a Bitcoin scam article or a fake McAfee warning), although PCGW's links seem to stay well clear of such scenarios. Affiliate redirections (or worse, link shorteners) aren't worth the risk or possible reputation problems in most cases.
  5. On paper, assigning a game as being DRM-free on Steam or EGS on PCGamingWiki is pretty easy. For Steam games, one goes to the individual PCGamingWiki game pages, finds a string akin to "{{Availability/row| Steam | 1341050 | Steam | | | Windows }}", and changes the 2nd "Steam" phrasing to "DRM-free".
  6. Presuming you're referring to https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_DRM-free_games_on_Steam, the descriptions on our list pages (A large majority of which I've assisted in editing at some point) tend to be pretty barebones, so a note like that would look slightly out of place.
  7. >"Sadly GOG have just changed their Terms and Conditions on their forums to forbid linking to or discussion of competing stores:-" That definitely sounds like something GOG would do. Ever since their scandals about Devotion and Hitman 3, I personally have got such little confidence in them that I'd expect them to hush down any criticism. >"would the PCGW Moderators here have any objection if I posted the following direct link into the spreadsheet" If I understand the question correctly, I as a PCGW senior editor (though with no actual mod rights) have no objections to it.
  8. The main PCGamingWiki site does not cover Parallels compatibility checks that I'm aware of (though it would have been able to cover native ARM games). I presume https://www.applegamingwiki.com/wiki/Home would be the place you're looking for.
  9. Okay, so: List of games with LAN multiplayer for 8 or more players List of games with LAN multiplayer for 16 or more players List of freeware games with LAN multiplayer I ran into some obstacles with the list for dedicated servers, because the PCGW team members who handle the Cargo API implementation, have forgot to add the "Connections" template to it.
  10. Making lists for max LAN players and for dedicated servers should be pretty easy to do on PCGW. I don't think skill ceilings or recommended players would be possible to do with PCGW's backend. The rest I'd have to look into.
  11. • Simultaneous support: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_games_that_support_simultaneous_input • English closed captioning: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_games_that_support_closed_captioning • Controller remapping: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_games_that_support_controller_remapping • Keyboard remapping: Such a list can be made with ease, but I need some sleep first. • Making lists for each subtitle language could get crowded fairly fast. A workaround is to go to https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Special:Drilldown/L10n?Subtitles=true and select a langu
  12. They've also attracted some fame for how Codemasters simply forgot to delist Race Driver: Grid from it when car licences elapsed. Though Google search algorithms have been very cruel against ZOOM Platform.
  13. I am aware of https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Category:Audio-based for blind people, but not of any lists for e.g. people with one hand, among many other things.
  14. Okay, here it is: https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_games_with_LAN_multiplayer If you feel that any games are missing from that list, you can go to the game pages and attempt to set Multiplayer > LAN support = true (which admittedly gets complicated on gamepages where the Multiplayer box isn't already present).
