Currently there is a tag, created 5 years ago, with 88 questions and the following usage guidance:

Retro games, both hardware and software-based. NOT EVERY GAMING QUESTION IS ON-TOPIC. See tag wiki for guidance.

There is also a tag, created less than a year ago, with 19 questions and no usage guidance.

Two questions have both tags.

Is there a good reason for keeping these two tags separate, rather than merging them? If they are to be kept separate, what is the difference between the two tags?


1 Answer 1


Good catch. I can see no compelling reason to keep them separate.

If others agree, they can be merged.
