VG Task force, Wikidata.png

The WikiProject dedicated to the world of video games!


The goals of this WikiProject is to work and improve all items about video games, adding the necessary missing information (e.g. labels, descriptions, statements), as well as other necessary tasks.

As new games are released each day, the goal will also be to keep up with the new releases of games, to make Wikidata's coverage of video game data as comprehensive as possible.

What’s new[edit]


This section includes useful resources to be used on video game items.
