It's been a while, but how about the Batman movie (page here: Film.Batman). Should it be moved to "Batman 1989" or something?
I am normally opposed to the use of years for title disambiguation, but because of the Adam West film there's no other option. Film.Batman 1989 it is.
Also, I propose a rename of Life on Mars (2006) and Life on Mars (2008) to Life On Mars UK and Life On Mars US. Given that there is only a two-year gap between 2006 and 2008, non-fans might confuse one for the other, so UK/US disambiguation works better than year disambiguation.
We have a precedent for my proposed rename — The Office (UK) and The Office (US) being one that comes to mind immediately.
If the stronger differentiation is the UK/US one rather than the year, that's perfectly fine. Dennis the Menace is also differentiated that way.

Dennis the Menace is a unique case because the two have the same name in the same medium, but are completely unrelated. In addition, year disambiguation could not have been used in that case, as they coincidentally launched the same year.
EDIT: I should really stop switching between my main and my alt.

We are currently having this issue with Fable - from what I can tell it's not a proper usage of Franchise/ but ~Tiny Ted Danson put it there anyhow.
The differentiation item should be the strongest one; the one that's clearest, not any particular one. There's also Sally Forth : in that case it's differentiated by the artist (Sally Forth Howard for the family strip and Sally Forth (Wood) for the one that ran in the Stars And Stripes and decidedly more racy.)

Misusing the multimedia Franchise/ namespace for a single medium franchise seems most common for the videogames.
So I just ran into Scream. As far as I know, they're all movies. Plus, it's particularly non-indicative since it's the page for all the movies, including the first installment anyway.

Rune Factory is both for the first game in the series and for the series in general, even though the other games already have their own pages.
Metal Gear. I suggest renaming it to Metal Gear since the direct sequel is named Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
Now I've done it. Please help with wick cleanup (I'll get back to it later).
I suggest we make a page for the Hannibal Lecter series, to seperate general series tropes from Literature.Silence Of The Lambs.
Go right ahead. It seems like a good idea.
Hey, I was recommended here about separating/making a series page for the Five Nights at Freddy's games. I was thinking of renaming the first one in the series to "Five Nights At Freddy's 1" and then using the old name for the series page (since a lot of pages just link to the first one). Is this acceptable?
Necro-ing this thread to bring up three more: Franchise.Persona and VideoGame.Persona, Franchise.Grandia and VideoGame.Grandia, and Franchise.Dangan Ronpa and VisualNovel.Dangan Ronpa. Since Grandia has only ever had video games, the series page should be in the Video Game namespace, not Franchise.
VideoGame.Rune Factory lumps together the first game and the series as a whole into the same page. Every other entry already has its own page, and I don't recall the series having works in any other media, so we'd just need to split the first entry into VideoGame.Rune Factory 1.
... hopefully this project can actually continue after a three-year bump?

I was wrong about what I was originally in this post, but what should be done about the ones brought up in the last two posts?

I've been thinking about splitting up the God Eater page into one for the whole franchise, one for the first game, one for the second, and perhaps also one for the upcoming third game.
So far, I've got the following sandboxes:
Aside from the descriptions, do these look good enough for a launch?
I'd say these drafts are fine to launch in this condition, and even the descriptions aren't bad. The only thing that's left is images for singular games.

For the descriptions, they were a single sentence when I made this post. I expanded on them afterwards.
The pictures should be easy enough, just put the box art up there.

How well does it match the trope?
