[edit] [purge] Template documentation


Infobox VG is used on all game pages to display a title's compatibility rating along with various other information, including the title's GameIDs, release dates, and box art. Categories are also generated depending on the parameters to indicate information about the title, and flag parts of the infobox that may need improvement. When creating a new page, the infobox should be fleshed out with as much release information as possible.


The following parameters are considered required on all pages:
