So, I finally hit the big 100,000. I have spent countless hours editing the wiki, adding information for various games, writing articles, adding releases, taking pictures, etc., etc., etc. What can I say? I really enjoy adding information to help my favorite video game website become one of the best game resources on the web. And at this rate, it looks like that will be soon. Here are my top ten favorite wiki articles I've worked on, because everyone loves lists.
Funny thing is, here I only wrote the information about all of the spin-offs and other materials. So, if you were the one who wrote all of the information about the main series, great job. There really isn't much else to say here; it's Mario, I wrote the spin-offs section, I got a ton of points, the end.
9. The Legend of Zelda
I still have a ton of work to do with this article, which is why it's number nine here on the list. The only section left to do, though, is that pesky timeline section (which could really use some help). Otherwise, I feel I did a pretty good job (the article was a grammatical mess when I saw it at first).
8. The World Ends With You
The World Ends With You is a game that I only recently picked up. The wiki article was pretty much blank, so I filled it in with everything from character summaries to a development history. Personally, I think I did a pretty good job, but that's up to you to decide. It's pretty generic stuff compared to some of the stuff higher on the list, though.
7. Mother 3
Awesome game means it needs an awesome wiki page. For the longest time, this article was uneditable (I don't think that's a word), but as soon as it was, I got to work on it. Like the The World Ends With You article, this is pretty basic stuff compared to stuff higher up, but it's still a decent article (full plot summary, yay).
6. Command & Conquer Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge
This is the expansion pack to Red Alert 2 (it shows up later on this list), so I naturally played a lot of it when I had Red Alert 2. So, when this wiki article shows up blank, I filled it in with a ton of information, listing all of the units and structures in the game to boot.
5. Beanbean Kingdom
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is up there in my favorite games of all time. The Beanbean Kingdom was an awesome place, filled with different sights and locales. I know a lot about this game, considering how many hours I spent with the game, so I dove into writing an article for the Beanbean Kingdom location page. An hour or so later, you have this article; a cool representation of the location that Superstar Saga takes place in.
4. Final Fantasy VI
Another wiki page that is one of my favorite games of all time. This one is different in that the wiki page was already partially built by the time I got there. So, if you worked on this article, great job, I just built on what was there before, adding a lot of information on gameplay, plot, and character summaries.
I really like this page for one reason; it put into scope the massiveness of Capcom's gaming library. There is a lot more information I could add about Capcom properties being adapted into other forms of media, but whatever. The one thing I couldn't believe about this article; I got about 200 or 300 alone from adding links.
2. Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
The Command & Conquer franchise is one that I have grown up with. So, when I saw that the Red Alert 2 wiki page was empty, I jumped at the chance to write a wiki for it. Now, I have not only written a ton about the plot, gameplay, and faction benefits, but I have also listed every unit and structure in the game, with stats, price, and a brief description. You have no idea how long that took.
1. Chrono Trigger
Okay, honestly, who didn't see this coming? Despite the page's... interesting history (which I won't go into right now), it is the wiki page that I have put the most love and care into, writing everything that I know about the game. Well, not quite (there is more I could add; I want to add a bit to the plot about reviving Crono), but that's beside the point; this page is awesome.
In closing, here's the first article I edited.
