comment How do I get the end of the world?
@SevenSidedDie Actually, in the second link you mention, the top answer specifically agrees with me: "In cases like this, where the question itself is completely generic and applies to many games, adding the title perfectly acceptable, it might be even necessary to circumvent the duplicate title check (you can't have two questions with exactly the same title on the site)." The top answer for the other question seems to indicate the opposite point...that ambiguity is somehow a "feature" because it encourages curiosity. Bleh. I can be curious without people hiding information from me.

comment How do I get the end of the world?
@SevenSidedDie Hmm...I probably worded the comment too strongly. It's something I have an opinion about, but definitely didn't intend to offend. It's an issue that has also been discussed on other sites...the general consensus I've seen is that while the the game name should definitely be a tag, it should also be in the question title if the question doesn't make sense without it. This question, for example, is showing up in the "hot questions" dropdown area for StackExchange sites...but from the question title without the game name, it's not clear what the question is about.

Game title is critical in this case to making the question make sense for areas that don't show tags.

revised What's the order of “best fuels” in Minecraft?
Question title is meaningless without the game title...one of those cases where the tag should be in the title.

comment Can I copy the StarCraft 2 DVD to install the game (is there any disc protection)?
@MatthewRead Thanks for throwing the title in there. This question is showing up in "Hot Questions", which had the old title...but Hot Questions doesn't show tags, so it was a bit mysterious.

comment Can I copy the StarCraft 2 DVD to install the game (is there any disc protection)?
Could someone add the game title to this question? It isn't a question that will have the same answer across games (IE, it's intrinsic to the question, so it's title-appropriate.)

comment Will killing animals ruin achievements?
@SteveV. But that's the point. Keeping chaos low isn't necessarily related to gaining several of the achievements...in particular the one that says that the player can't kill anyone: someone looking at that goal isn't wondering how to keep chaos low...they're wondering how to get the achievement. The goal is different, and presumably the person searching is looking for a different reason. The answers are similar, but not the questions.
