As I have lately noticed, Xenogears (as most videogames) went by unseen by the Tree of Razael of the Internet. We ought to change that, fellow promoters of the Xeno franchise. Whenever, for example, a literary source is quoted in Xenogears or Xenosaga (i.e. Shakespear), we shall add it to the corresponding page in Wikipedia. Most of the pages there reference media like books, movies and even comics, but video games are extremely unterrepresented. This harms the public acceptance of video games as a form of art. I startet to change this by adding
Albedo´s scene with MOMO
in Xenosaga Ep 1 to the Wikipedia page of "..., thy name is ...". I suggest that whenever you see Xeno content (or video game content in general) lacking from Wikipedia, please add it. Xeno is so underrepresented and it would be nice if it would get more attention. Also, it is a shame that Wikipedia seems to ignore the existence of videogames when it comes to pages not concerning video games.

I think this is a really cool idea/effort to increase visibility of gaming as an important art form (and Xenogears/Saga especially bc damn they're overlooked in the general sense).

I'm going to try and check a few wiki pages later because I had never thought of doing this. People often use Wikipedia as their gateway to broader media and academic research so this is a really cool thought.

Thanks! Yeah sure nice to see that this idea is appreciated! Let´s hope Xeno gets more popular in the future so that more people can enjoy these games and that we one day can see a proper Xenogears / Xenosaga Remake :)
