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
