General information is a list of general links that are relevant to the game.

General rules

  • Too many links can create unneeded clutter. Each article should have 10 general links max.
  • If a PC Report or other article by PCGamingWiki is available, provide a link to it at the top of the list.
  • Some potential sites to use:
    • Official forums
    • Game wikis (official)
    • GOG.com links (required if available on GOG.com)
    • Steam links (required if available on Steam)
  • The list formatting should be the following:
    • PCGamingWiki articles
    • Official websites (developer-run forums, official wikis)
    • Other official websites
    • GOG.com links tag
    • Steam Community Discussions
    • Steam Users' Forums
    • Source code links (if available)
  • If nothing else can be found, provide a link to the relevant MobyGames article

GOG.com links tag

Syntax

{{GOG.com links| Product ID | Forums ID | Note for forums link }}

Example

For Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
GOG.com Community Discussions for game series

A simplified method of providing links to GOG.com pages. With the appropriate page IDs, the tag can auto-link to the game-specific support page and forums.
