This template needs to be present on every game page on the wiki. It contains the basic information on who developed, ported and published the game, as well as what engine was used and when was it released on different operating systems. In addition, it can hold a cover or box image for the game, as well as information on the location of the game's page on several other websites.

Arguments
Parameter Description
title Optional. Add if game title is stylized in some way and therefore varies from page name.
cover Only include this if a cover for this game is present on the wiki or on Wikimedia Commons. The contents of this line should be just the filename, excluding the namespace.
developers All information included under this argument must be related to developers of the particular game.

Possible rows include:

{{Infobox game/row/developer|1|2}}
  1. The first argument should contain the name of the developer.
  2. The second, if necessary, a subtitle as to what the developer was responsible for.
porter Optional. This row is only required when a game has been ported to a particular OS from another platform or OS.

Possible rows include:

{{Infobox game/row/porter|1|2}}
  1. The first argument is the name of the porter.
  2. The second argument is the operating system. Valid arguments include:
  • PC booter
  • DOS
  • Windows
  • Windows 3.x
  • Linux
  • OS X
  • Mac OS
publishers This row is only required when a game was published by another company than the developer of the game.

Possible rows include:

{{Infobox game/row/publisher|1|2}}
  1. The first argument should contain the name of the publisher.
  2. The second, if necessary, a subtitle specifying the region or the OS the publisher was responsible for.
engines All information included under this argument must be related to engines used in the game.

Possible rows include:

{{Infobox game/row/engine|1|2}}
  1. The first argument should contain the name of the engine used.
  2. The second, if necessary, what component it was responsible for.
  • Never list the engine as Custom, Inhouse or similar. This provides no additional information to the user.

An engine version can optionally included, see Engine row for more information.

release dates All information included under this argument must be related to release dates of the game.

See Release date rows for more information.

reception Average (based on a minimum of at least 4 scored reviews) critics reception of the game from a supported aggregator.

Possible rows include:

{{Infobox game/row/reception|1|2|3}}
  1. The first argument should contain the reviews aggregator service the row is for:
    • Metacritic
    • OpenCritic
    • IGDB
  2. The second row should contain the unique identifier from the URL for the review aggregator page for the game:
  3. The third argument should contain the averaged critics reception score from the aggregator, and be at least based on a minimum of 4 reviews:
    • For Metacritic, use the Metascore.
    • For OpenCritic, use the Top Critic Average score.
    • For IGDB, use the critic ratings score. This is the smaller (in size of the element, not in units) score to the right. The larger score to the left is the average IGDB user rating and should not be used.
    • Leave the field empty if the critics reception score on the aggregator is based on less than four reviews.
taxonomy The appropriate taxonomy tags for the game, see Taxonomy for further information.
steam appid The App ID of the game on Steam. The SteamDB favicon will appear when it is defined.
steam appid side Additional App IDs the game or its DLCs are available under on Steam. This takes a comma separated list for input.
gogcom id The ID of the game on GOG.com. The GOG Database favicon will appear when it is defined.
gogcom id side Additional IDs the game or its DLCs/packages are available under on GOG.com. This takes a comma separated list for input.
official site Add the full URL of the official site from either the original developer or the current rights holder. Do not use store pages.
winehq The unique link identifier for the game on WineHQ.
hltb The unique link identifier for the game on HowLongToBeat.
igdb The unique link identifier for the game on IGDB.

This only needs to be filled out if a reception row for IGDB is not present already.

Engine row

The engine row can support an optional and manually specified build= and ref= parameters to specify the specific version of an engine, as well as include a reference link for it typically as a user self reference, but a URL may also be used. This information can be useful in the occasion where issues can occur specific to that engine version.

Below is the typical format used when specifying an engine version for Unity and Unreal,

Unity
{{Infobox game/row/engine|Unity|name=Unity 2017|build=2017.4.19f1|ref=<ref name="engineversion">{{Refcheck|user=Expack3|date=2019-06-20}}</ref>}}
Unreal Engine 4
{{Infobox game/row/engine|Unreal Engine 4|build=4.12.4|ref=<ref name="engineversion">{{Refcheck|user=Expack3|date=2019-06-20}}</ref>}}
