On the conservation of the Media category

I think the Media Category should stay as it still has its uses. MDGeistMD02 (talk) 04:41, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

I agree that we should keep it if it's repurposed like Geist suggested:

"I think the Files page should be used for audio, Video, etc found WITHIN the game itself...

And Media should be used for those things independent of the game: the Strategy Guide, Tales from Dunwall Videos, the Art Book, etc."

It seems like a pretty reasonable distinction to make.

In that logic, I would suggest to rename it "Other Media" or something similar, to differenciate it from the games and downloadable contents, which are also media. Pauolo (talk) 07:55, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

I was considering making a category called "Games" to put Dishonored, Dishonored 2 and Dishonored: Rat Assassin under, but "Media" is broader, which is good. "Products" could also be a good name. Blood Ox (talk) 09:20, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

I'm not so sure about naming the games and DLC "Media" and the other stuff "Other Media". That just seems confusing, and will be especially so to new editors. I'm going to check out some of the other wikis later on and see what they call theirs - maybe it will spark up an idea that I can share. MDGeistMD02 (talk) 16:36, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

Would Tie-Ins be the word for media related to a game/movie/series of any sort? I'm not sure however if the artbook and strategy guide can be considered as tie-ins. Pauolo (talk) 16:59, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
