Feh. talk:Tetris shows one editor obsessed with encyclopedic importance of the game, a mystery man playing his cards close to his chest, a citer who doesn't know what attributive nouns are, and one who implies that WT:BRAND doesn't count if he doesn't recognize a brand. I'll relist it shortly. —MichaelZ. 2010-04-07 22:10 z
WT:BRAND sounds right. I found this in google books: "I twirl back toward the rear wall, where there's the jukebox and some guy playing Asteroids. " Polarpanda 21:02, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes, WT:BRAND applies. Asteroids is a trademark of Atari Inc. —MichaelZ. 2010-04-07 22:10 z
WT:BRAND seems to talk about "a Mazda", "a Ford" (etc.). Pretty sure you can't say "some Asteroids", so it looks like a certain fail. Just delete it. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:24, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
You mean like "I went into the living room and got out the Atari to play some Asteroids"? Polarpanda 19:49, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Oddly enough the rules on brand names seems very lax. But since this is a specific entry, I guess it needs attributive citations. Looks like a very high percentage of brand names would pass under this. Including every make of car ever. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:57, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
"I watched some (any TV show). I drank some (any brand of drink)." We can't include things purely on that basis! Equinox◑ 11:17, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
That's not the point. Mglovesfun was saying if you can't say that, it would be a certain fail. Polarpanda 19:41, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

RFDed, but the consensus was to apply WT:BRAND, so I'm bringing it here hereby.—msh210℠ 15:40, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
