The way I've done it has usually been:

Game. Year. Published by.

Fairly sure Title, Publisher and year would suffice...

I would also add, 1. considering the dynamic nature of the game, and that you're supposed to put it for websites, the date played, and 2. the developer in the author space. Having just Vivendi and not Blizzard is a bit odd. So:

Blizzard Entertainment, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, (2004: Vivendi Universal), as of 13.04.2007.

Then again, I tend to err on the side of caution when it comes to referencing... I have enough problems with my essays, I don't need ambiguity in referencing to put ontop of it. =/

I'm pretty bad with referencing aswell. Thankfully Kavita Eyre gave out some thingy's on how to reference books properly.

But I would go with PwarYuex's system

aww Robbie you posted about half an hour after I left the house :( I'll fix it up for next time though.

Yes Jamie, it's WoW... I wrote a creative writing piece based on it. lol. In theory it's pretty funny, but all that conversation - ugh! So hard to write. Not sure I ever want to do it again.

haha when i saw the title of the thread i instantly thought cyan had started it.

it's funny it's not stated anywhere, since it seems a fair few people have had to reference one before.

instead of page numbers do you put what level in the game as a reference?

doom 2, level 5.
