Interesting, but how can you justify it considering half the games are not even on this universe

Many have dates on the AD timescale, though. You'll have to assume that the games that must take place in an alternate universe, such as Half-Life 2, do.

Also, any help with any of the titles under "Unclassified" would be greatly appreciated.

Team fortress 2 takes place in June of 1968. Furthermore, Goldrush maps take place at 9:07 AM, and several maps take place in a fictional city of Carrison, Nevada.

Thanks! I'll add that to the timeline. I've been working with it on a bigger forum, so there have been some changes. No more "Unclassified" section for starters. If it's not on the list, assume a date has not yet been found for the game.

I think this idea is fun, but...

FANBOY RRRRRRAGEEEEE:
Ico is not a game series.
RRRRRRAGEEEE OVERRR.

Also, BioShock 2 takes place exactly ten years after BioShock.

I was counting the upcoming Team Ico game (forgot the name), Shadow of the Colossus, and Ico as a series as they are all confirmed to take place in the same continuity. And BioShock 2 added.

I really think you should include the time and date for TF2.

I want to set a standard, and it's hard enough to pin down games in a single year as-is. Perhaps in a later stage of the list I'll go into greater detail.

I took out the Star Wars and Metroid because I wasn't sure whether the information I got on dates was reliable. I've also decided, for now, to leave out plotless sports, racing, and rhythm games, with a few exceptions.

EDIT: I'm totally tapped for ideas for games to add, so please try and find missing entries! I did just put up Zero Wing, though. IN AD 2101, WAR WAS BEGINNING.

I am currently trying my damndest to find the dates on Mario for you, though it seems almsot impossible.

Would you consider The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! canon?

I think maybe Mario and Luigi are in the 80's, because thats when the whole mario series started. But the decor from in the trailer of the show was older. But I think it we can't really know, because I don't think have years in that world. And since we don't really know how long the've been in the world of shrooms, we can't tell....unless we watch every show and play every game until we find one of the characters saying what year it is!

Any volunteers? Very Happy

The characters never say what the year is, and even then there is the chance they use a different calendar then we do.
