I like including game names in my question titles. I feel it makes more grammatical sense and gives a clearer indication of what the question is about. From time to time, though, I see an editor come through and delete the game name from the title, calling it unnecessary. And I'm ok with that - standards are standards for a reason.
Then, while I was writing this question: Can I change the difficulty in Metal Gear Rising? , I chose to disobey the naming conventions.
We already have half a dozen questions titled "How Can I Change The Difficulty?"
I realize that most of the time, there's no problem removing the name from the title; it's unambiguous enough to say "What can I do with Dragon Bones and Scales?" without adding "...in Skyrim", but in this case I feel that the game name in the title could only improve clarity.
- Is there a standard for when we should edit game names out of question titles?
- If there is a standard, what's the rationale?
- If not, can I use my judgment?
