I'll just toss this old list of mine here. Now that there's a Browser platform some of these definitely have a place on the site, but I'm bringing it here to see if there are any in this list that don't meet Giant Bomb's current criteria for Web-based games.

Browser games

Games that run in a browser. These should be deleted, or more ideally moved to a new Web platform.

1. JamLegend

http://www.jamlegend.com/

2. Lord of Ultima

http://www.lordofultima.com/

3. FarmVille
4. Evony

5. MechQuest
6. RuneScape
7. Runescape Classic
8. Habbo Hotel

You can play Minecraft classic in your browser. But some people don't consider that a game...so...nvm...?

EDIT: Also battleon.com or adventure quest and all those other games by them.

The mod already put up the page for it.  It's on page 2 of the forums by now, I even posted in it.

I agree, let's delete Minecraft. It's a scum of a game.

Wait, what are we even talking about here?

I want Evony removed because of the issues with it. Scamming. ALlowed hate speech. Malware issues. Links to gold farming services.

That doesn't mean it isn't a game. Plenty of other games have those types of problems. Go play Diablo II on battle.net today and three out of those four are in effect. Does that mean it should be deleted?

Evony also engages in texture theft along with image theft in their advertising. They use textures stolen from Age of empire in their game.

@The_Laughing_Man:  The issues are exactly why it should stay in the wiki. Nobody's saying the game has to be portrayed in a positive light.

True. It does state how big of a scum pile it is.

All the games you posted pass the criteria and should stay.

Limbo of the Lost ripped off everything from everywhere, and it's in the wiki.

Everything below Lord Of Ultima should stay.

Got a new one. This one does have its own domain, fulfilling the first rule. But it has only 2310 registered users despite existing since at least 2008, and seems to be the sort of thing that the rules were intended to prevent.


9. Pimpin 2.0

Well, it does have its own domain...

@LordAndrew:
I almost agree with you, but like the criteria says, it only has to pass one of those rules.
