Tag articles with the title of the game in question
Gobo commented on 9 February 2018 at 3:46 pm UTC

A good number of topics are covered multiple times on GamingOnLinux. Which is a good thing, information gets gathered and refined, you can glimpse at a history.

Articles are tagged to categorize them and you can click tags to view all entries of that category. But the name of the game (or technology or other topic) is not part of the tags.

Other news portals already do this, like RockPaperShotgun or IGN.

Adding the title of the game could work around that, but maybe clutter up the categories. If you don't want that, maybe some additional tag-type would be better suited for the task.

Using such a system would enable readers to view all articles on a specific topic instead of a more generalized genre.

Hmm... Now that the site has an actual game database for the wishlists, maybe these could be used for tagging articles?

Well, they could be glued together for sure.

But GOL covers more topics than just games and the tags are lacking consistency. E.g. articles about Wine are tagged as wine, as are those about Unity3D. But articles about Godot on the other hand are hidden behind tags like "game engine" and "open source" and in between lots of other content that uses the same tags.
