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
