What topics can I ask about here?

Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange is for questions targeted towards science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts. This includes questions about:

  • Plot, character, or setting explanations
  • Historical or societal context of a work
  • Behind-the-scenes and fandom information
  • Story identification
  • Franchise/series reading or viewing order

Now I'm curious if Sci-Fi games fall under any of these categories. So, are questions regarding Sci-Fi games allowed on this community?

Yes, we have and tags. The wiki for the former describes when it is appropriate to ask a question about a sci-fi (or fantasy) video game:

For questions about the plot or backstory of a game with science-fiction/fantasy elements. Questions about playing the game or the mechanics are off-topic here, but may be on topic at Arqade (https://gaming.stackexchange.com/). Game identification questions are also on topic as long as they're specifically about a Science Fiction and Fantasy game.

Similar guidelines apply to non-video games.
