I saw that we repeatedly get questions about Japanese from video games. I think it might be useful to create a tag for such questions, as grammar/usage/vocabulary of Japanese can be different from Japanese from other sources.

I tagged three questions with , but maybe is a better name...?

In any case, I would like to ask for some feedback before introducing a new tag.

The tag is now live and is a tag synonym.

The tag excerpt currently reads

ゲーム. Japanese grammar, expressions, vocabulary as used in the context of video games.

Of course comments are still welcome.

  • Might not be big enough to warrant a separate tag, but I'd suggest that the words used (by players) in gaming are different from the words used in-game for video-games

    @Mars I changed it to "used in the context of video games", which should include gaming. Is this better?

  • I think so! Hard to distinguish between gaming terms and net-slang sometimes
