18 would seem to be the best way to approach this.

I agree, it should be settings that are Always Night for whatever reason.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

I've already made by vote in favor.
There are two ways to live without thinking: Believing in everything you're told, and not believing in anything at all. Both are bad.

Calling for redefinition to the setting being always night.

Could we just... not have Death anymore?
Page is scrubbed. I'm not really happy about the Video Game examples, though. I'm not sure if stage/levels should count for the purposes of this trope or not. Even if it is, someone else should go over that section to doublecheck my work. I'll start on the wicks now.
Yeah I am confused on that for Video Games, While Night Level might be a valid side trope for level based games.

But what about places like that City in Final Fantasy VIII? which is always at night, and I mean always even in flashback from 20 years ago it is at night. The World Map even goes night when the city is approached and goes day when you move away from it.
Could we just... not have Death anymore?
That seems much clearer: it is an example. Anything with a world map that indicates "this area is dark" seems to have the same sense of belonging that non-videogame examples have. But randomly running into a cave level, or one stage is dark to represent time passing, doesn't seem to fit.

I've gone through up to One Night on the wicks. Feeling drained after that. Don't really want to continue the cleanup. Does anyone else have opinions on what I and ~Memers think RE: vigeo games with nighttime levels?

There are some definite bits of misuse in the video game folder.

I think this is done? Might have some bad examples left in, but the description seems to be fixed to go with the crowner.

I'm certain the Video Game examples aren't fixed, and I haven't visited the wicks since my last post. Example cleanup is the last objective preventing this from completion.

Just pruned a few examples. Some of those involve being in space, which is obvious misuse in my eyes.

Space has no day/night cycle, so those are definitely shoehorns.

I am guessing people mistake "permanently dark sky" (because space lacking an atmosphere means that it isn't illuminated by scattered light even when you are looking towards the sun) for "night".

I've cleaned the main page. Going through the wicks.

How are the wicks, ~shimaspawn? I've seen the development of Dimly Lit Land, which looks to be collecting some of this trope's misuse from Missing Supertrope Syndrome.

I got mostly through them, but I have been having some real life issues keeping me busy.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
