This question that I asked, about what the video games being referenced in a DOOM Eternal screenshot were, got closed for being off-topic for reasons I don't fully understand.
Now, re-reading the [game-identification] tag description, I think I may have been mistaken in tagging with that, but I checked beforehand whether "reference-sourcing" questions were on-topic for Arqade before I posted that, and everything I saw pointed to them being fine. For example:
- What is the original reference to Ness' entrance in Super Smash Bros.?
- What is the reference made in the quote from this final boss?
- Are there any references to Firefly in Halo 3: ODST?
- What are the Blizzard references made with the arcade machines on Hanamura?
Has there been some scope change or meta discussion I missed that means asking questions about references in games is no longer topical, or is there some other aspect I'm failing to understand?
