I think this makes it self evident that we should rather tag our games:

Given that need-for-speed-most-wanted is yet another game name which blows past the 25 character tag limit, I'd say we should encourage the nfs abbreviation. It's a well known abbreviation for the series anyway, and we should be able to make synonyms for the full name versions.

I actually much prefer the tagging style of:

Over tags starting with "nfs", because:

  1. It is consistent with other tags already used - or at least, with many tags I know of.
  2. The most important part of a tag is its beginning, because of auto-complete. So I really want a need-for-speed game to start with need-for-speed. And for users who are choosing those tags the otherwise cryptic "hp" or "mw" abbreviations become obvious, since they are limited to the need-for-speed domain.
  3. The NFS series is relatively well-known and probably has very few other games competing with the initials, but other gaming abbreviations may not be unique, so I think it's best to start with the full name.

I admit, though, that many nfs players are very likely to use the initials as well, so it might be wise to set up synonyms.

  • nfsmw has 6 posts, need-for-speed-mw has 2. The numbers are so low it's silly to pull facts out of them, though.
