As the title says, do we need the tag ?

At this moment, the tag has only 15 questions, and no usage definition.

The questions tagged are mostly about infinite 2d games, looping content (background), and procedural generation.

I think we should black list it as it can be applied to a lot of situations, which are not really connected.

And I don't think anyone is an expert in 'infinite'.

Nobody out of game development context knows what procedural is, i bet newbies will search first for "how to make infinite world map in GameMaker" than "Procedural terrain algorithm C++"

implying they even do search

  • \$\begingroup\$ I think it should stay, if we remove it, newbies will post questions about "infinite generation" with other unrelated tags, this is the closest we can approach "procedural" to "street language" \$\endgroup\$
