The oldest question on identify-this-game-like questions that I found here is 7 years old. So my introduction question is whether this class of questions are or are not allowed here as of today (2021)?
If they're allowed, then currently the game-identification tag's wiki states (emphasis mine):
USE WITH CAUTION: Only ask if you have a screenshot, video, or audio clip from the game you want to identify. The only game identification questions allowed on this site are those asking to identify games in movies, pictures, videos, advertisements or otherwise where an unknown game appears - not from a description of what you can recall from memory, or from a picture you drew yourself.
Am I allowed to ask such a question based on a:
- Keyboard combination used to play the game (quite very non-typical)
- Approximate year the game was released (before XXX)
- Most likely hardware it was released to
- Probable game type (based on first point, i.e. key combinations)
Or is this not enough, there's a strong possibility that this will produce too many possible matches and the question becomes guessing-game-type question, which is prohibited here, if I am not mistaken.
