/v/'s Recommended Games Wiki is a community site that anyone can contribute to. Discover, share and add your knowledge!

Welcome to /v/'s Recommended Games Wiki

All of these recommendations come from /v/ (or at least should be). Expect tastes that may not match your own, a healthy serving of hateful language, and punishing standards of quality. We hate so hard because we love video games so much.

This wiki, like all wikis, lives and breathes on the efforts of volunteers. If /v/ is going nuts over a new release or an unburied gem from the past or you can contribute to one of our lists, we appreciate it.

PROTIP: This wiki was originally optimized for the Monobook skin, so some things may look off on the current default Fandom look. While Monobook has been retired, if you'd like you can change the skin in your personal user's CSS page. Try the PseudoMonobook, it is one of the great alternatives available!
