What is a Clique?
A clique is a listing of people that attribute themselves to the clique's subject. In this case, the members of this clique are celebrating their love of video games. Unlike fanlistings, cliques tend to represent abstract concepts and ideals rather than being a fan of a subject. This means that cliques can range from claiming something (like this clique), showing a belief, supporting an ideal and so forth.
What's the Point?
Cliques give people a chance to show their support or belief of a cause or subject, and generally they're just really good fun. Website owners can also use buttons to identify themselves as a member of a clique.
This clique allows members to "claim" a video game or something from a video game - literally anything that exists in a video game. This means things can only be claimed once. If a something is already taken you may not claim it. This might seem strict, however, it is to help spread the love amongst all games. So try to choose the one that really means a lot to you.
You may claim:
- Any individual video game (on any platform)
- A game series
- A game expansion or DLC
- An item, place or creature from a game
- Any Characters from a game
- A class or race (or equivalent) from a game
- Web and browser games are acceptable
You may not claim:
- A game on a specific platform i.e. you cannot claim Assassin's Creed on the PC if Assassin's Creed has already been taken.
- A version of a character. For example, you cannot just claim Kerrigan from Starcraft in her human form, you must claim the entire character which includes her transformation into the Queen of Blades.
- Fan-made content or games
- New content that is not a DLC or expansion i.e. a content patch.
- A type of gaming or element of a game, such as MMORPGs or PVP. You could, however, claim a particular PVP location, such as a a battleground or arena in World of Warcraft.
- You can not claim groups of items such as game pets or collectables - you could claim an individual pet/collectable but not all of them.
