Eras

I have an issue with this template. The games aren't sorted into any type of eras. A user who isn't completely aware of the difference between the eras could interpret this as if GTA 2 takes place two years before GTA III, which in turn take place seven years before GTA IV, which they don't. In the world of each of those games, the world of the other's doesn't even exist. I suggest one of two things:

  1. Splitting this into different eras for GTA 1 and it's expansion packs, GTA 2, the GTA III Era, and the GTA IV Era.
  2. Splitting the template into one template for each era.

The first option has the advantage of listing all games, which can also be a disadvantage of listing games that have no relationship with the page being viewed (eg. a link to GTA III on the GTA IV page). The second option reverses those, but also adds it's own disadvantage. The GTA III Era has six games, and the GTA IV Era has four, and growing. However, the GTA 2 Era only has one game, so it wouldn't have a template at all. I suggest using option two for the GTA III and GTA IV eras, simply don't include one on the GTA 2 page, and maybe/maybe not make one for the GTA 1 Era. I also wouldn't entirely disagree with option one, but I don't like the current template, as it is like a timeline, but lists events that don't happen on the same timeline. Thoughts?
