I was participating in an online discussion where I noticed that a random user linked to other online sources for a list of HDR enabled games, and not PCGW, which made me think about why; the result being this thread. Right now, linking to the "list of games with HDR support" page resulted in a massive "wall-of-link:" http://pcgamingwiki.com/w/index.php?title=Special:Ask&x=-3Cq-3E-5B-5BCategory%3AGames-5D-5D-20-5B-5BHigh-20dynamic-20range%3A%3Atrue-5D-5D-20OR-20-20-3Cq-3E-5B-5BHigh-20dynamic-20range%3A%3Ahackable-5D-5D-3C-2Fq-3E-20-3C-2Fq-3E%2F-3FDeveloped-20by%2F-3FPublished-20by%2F-3FRelease-20date%2F-3FAvailable-20on%2F-3FHigh-20dynamic-20range&format=template&limit=100&template=Feature%2Frow&introtemplate=Feature%2Fintro&outrotemplate=Feature%2Foutro&offset=&mainlabel= Instead of using this, could we transition the whole template (and all searchable features) over to using defined "list of games with XXXX support" pages instead? So each time a new feature is added, an appropriate "list of XXXX" page gets created as well with the semantic search query embedded, and the feature template hooked to link to that page? It would have these positive consequences: - easier-to-read links - encourages sharing (the current "wall-of-a-link" is not really shareable) - allow search engine robots to traverse them and make them findable on Google etc (more visitors, more ad clicks, more $$$$$, lol) - allow us to add basic information on top of the list, sorta like this test page of mine: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/User:Aemony/List_of_games_with_HDR_support - in case of a very small list, the list could instead be listed in a section of another article, which then the feature template linked to. I do not know the full scope of the challenge nor how many pages it would affect, but I imagine it's quite a lot. But would it be worth pursuing? "The Lists of PCGW" as I'd like to call them are one of the largest resources PCGW have, and they're sadly currently being heavily underutilized due to various limitations and missed opportunities. This change would bring us a bit on the way to a "list-full" future where PCGW's lists are the links to share, and not outdated PC Gamer links or a similar list on Wikipedia.
As the title says, I would like this feature to be added to the Wiki. I am kind of a completionist, and it's hard to find any information regarding DLC for some older titles (for example Mass Effect 1). What do you think? Is it possible to implement this?
