Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The tag has 128 questions. The excerpt makes it seem as an overly general tag.

Questions directly related to computer gaming and interactive graphics/video

What is it for?

Should we burninate it?

Well, almost all questions in that tag is based on Game development. I remember we had a Game-Development tag once, but it was burninated. So gaming should be too.

Game development is a broad topic and a tag for the whole topic doesn't serve any purpose. And for overly broad/non specific (non SO) questions there is gamedev stackexchange site too..

It could be used for 'Gamification' which might get On-Topic questions. There are a few example questions on this already, but probably not enough to be tag-worthy yet. – JonW Jan 25 '13 at 12:43
@JonW, 34 questions is enough for a tag. Hell, two is enough for a tag if the topic is interesting enough. Getting gamification split from "gaming" will be a great thing if we're really (finally!) stamping out the gaming tags. – Charles Jan 25 '13 at 18:24
