Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following games are currently redlinks. They are worthy of an article here in at least one troper's opinion; but that troper may not be familiar enough with the show in question, or may not be a good writer, or, in some cases, knows the show is notable, hates it, but doesn't want to engage in Complaining About Shows You Don't Watch or Complaining About Shows You Don't Like.

If you write an article about one of these, or it turns into a it turns into a bluelink or greenlink on its own, please remove it from this list, unless it's a redirect. If that is the case, point that out. Please check that the blue link isn't a stub or e.g. movie page (now that there are no namespaces) before removing.

Sometimes a work has versions in more than one medium (for example, The Tick has comic book, animation, and live-action versions). If your example is like this, please list it under all the appropriate media, with the media type in brackets after the name (for example, [[The Tick (comic)]], [[The Tick (animation)]], and [[The Tick (television)]]), and create a disambiguation page with the name of the work (for example, The Tick).
