Q. Is there a proper way to mention the names of computer games in text? Italics? Quotes?
A. I’ve been advising people to italicize video games: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. They seem to have specific titles and specific versions—almost like titles of movies. Of course there are the older ones like Tempest or Pong or Defender or Ms. Pac-Man, and back then it may have seemed less appropriate to italicize, but I’d do so nonetheless.
