Video game database Wikipedia scraping

Can Wikipedia be added to the field import website list?  It seems like all of their videogame information has a standard format.  They have a lot more information than most on the list.  I rarely get any game information from sites other than MobyGames and Jeuxgames.com.

Re: Video game database Wikipedia scraping

We'd be better off using Freebase (http://www.freebase.com/) as the information is structured and can be fetched with a nice API.
Most of the video game entries seem to be ripped from Wikipedia anyway.
