I was surprised to see some video game identification questions here, as they don't seem to fit the types of questions I'm used to seeing here that have been interesting and edifying. I checked and found a meta post about game identification:
The highest voted answer there includes the following point:
We should not at this time introduce the kind of restrictions on questions that Arqade has because we're not (yet) experiencing the problems those were meant to solve, and so there's no point in paying the cost of those restrictions.
Will it be clear when we are "experiencing the problems"? Or is it possible that game identification questions will start to clutter up the Stack before they can be managed?
Relevant statistic: there are currently 115 questions with the identify-this-game tag.
