Template icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

An inline template that displays a game's icon and name with colored text and the subtle background from the add, only, and also templates. Intended for situations where the full game name is better than just its icon (such as in the middle of a sentence), and the reader's focus should be drawn to the presence of the game in whatever idea is being communicated.

Usage

This template has four parameters:

  • The first parameter has no name. The parameter should be the transclusion of exactly one template from Category:Game icons without the {{}} double braces.
  • name - this parameter is required for the name of the game. The name of the game must necessarily coincide with the title of the article of the game itself to which you are linking. Do not write the suffix there, for this there is a third parameter.
Note.png Note: It is clear that it is inconvenient to constantly write down the name parameter with the full name of the game, but on the other hand, in this case "switch" is not used, which means that if a new game or mod appears, it will be enough just to add its icon as a template and then this game/mod will work fine with this template.
  • suf - this parameter is needed so that the icon and the name of the game lead to the page of the language you need. Be sure to write ":es" but not "es"
  • gl - this parameter will make this template look like the "Game link" template.

Examples

{{Game name|hl2|name=Half-Life 2}}Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2
{{Game name|src07|name=Source 2007}}<Source><Source> Source 2007
{{Game name|GMOD|name=Garry's Mod}}Garry's Mod Garry's Mod
{{Game name|portal2|suf=:ru|name=Portal 2}}Portal 2 Portal 2
{{Game name|hl2|gl=1|name=Half-Life 2}}Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2
