Too many imagesEdit

There are way too many similar images on this page. I mean, sure, we're all psyched for the new game, and want to see all the shiny goodness it has to offer, but, we don't need 5 shots of the same battle. Galleries aren't for displaying EVERY picture of a character, just for images that best illustrate the character. I'm going to place comments on several pictures that I feel do not contribute much to the overall gallery. If people disagree, they may add their comments. Otherwise, if no one objects, I'll start taking them down. --Anobi 03:50, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

I can understand wanting to remove unofficial Images, but not officials ones like the ones I uploaded today. So why you flagged the ones I uploaded, which have not been posted here on the Wikia at all until now since they are Press Release Images of the current E3 Event is completely beyond me. -=X Zero X=- 06:35, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Because they're not good pictures of DmC Dante. In fact, they really don't illustrate much of anything. If the only thing remarkable about a picture is that it's number 4 of a set from a trailer, then it's probably not necessary. Pictures shouldn't be uploaded just for a gallery, anyway; unless it shows off something unique about the character that we don't already have a picture of. And we have TONS of pics of Dante fighting. --Anobi 07:31, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
I agree that this page has waaay too many images in it. It becomes really hard to find the meaningful pics here. Laconic is best here, in my opinion. However, I'm not willing to discuss which particular images to remove/delete, I always have hard time with that. My signature is NOT short! 05:25, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
The way I see it if the image contains the character I see no reason why it can not be in their gallery, as the Image does contain them -=X Zero X=- 13:20, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
It's not that it can't be on the gallery, it's just that they shouldn't. Like wiki writing in general: Don't use two words where one will suffice? Don't use five pics where only one is fine. Galleries shouldn't be dumping grounds for every little screen shot, they should be indicative of the character, be it style, personality, or neat details, like the pic of Dante's necklaces. 100's of pictures of combat scenes do nothing for the character, especially when we have videos containing those scenes on the same gallery page. (Speaking of videos, we might want to pear those down as well.) --Anobi (talk) 17:45, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
Also 'cause it approaches violating fair use.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 05:00, February 27, 2013 (UTC)
