Video Game Settings tends to attract poor indentation. People add it as a first level bullet point, and then list all settings that apply as sub-bullets. Video Game Settings is an index, so it shouldn't even be listed on work pages.

Finally, something is being done about this. I'll admit that I was guilty of doing this back in my early days as a Troper until someone called me out on it, but to be honest, the rules about this were not really enforced, so users were free to list Video Game Settings on pages without repercussions.
I'll check the Tales of... pages and do proper clean-ups on those, since I was responsible for listing Video Game Settings on some of those pages.
I'm thinking of adding the following warning to the index page:
Sounds good. You should discuss that to the moderators when possible.
Also, while we're at it, I would like to request the removal of Skyscraper City from Video Game Settings, since that trope is about futuristic metropolises in sci-fi works, not video game levels set in a city. We already have a trope for that called Graffiti Town, so Skyscraper City was obviously shoehorned in.

Another issue is that most examples just give the level's name. So far, A Super Mario Thing, Arc Angle, and Badland Brawl.
EDIT: More ZCE issues on Bingo The Multiva

For now, we'll focus on the indentation issue, because the zero context issue is so wide-spread that it's going to take a long while to fix all of the examples.
Bubbly Clouds does need a major cleanup.
Oof, Skyscraper City does have some problems though...
That's part of the reason the Metropolis Zone TLP exists.
Double post, but what about a long-running franchise where certain video game settings are recurring elements?
Huh... I thought this cleanup failed to get off the ground.
Whatever the case, with Metropolis Level replacing Skyscraper City as the de-facto city levels trope now, should we continue scouring the index for any more shoehorned non-video game tropes?

How well does it match the trope?
