Hello, I am currently developing a game that has many real object in it, and in the description of these objects I would like to show a little "educational" excerpt of text in order to add some "flavor text" to the objects in the game. I usually just take a few sentences or a paragraph of text from a Wikipedia page and put it into the game.
Is there a specific way I need to cite the text? After doing a bit of reading it looked like I could just reference the article like using "Parenthetical Reference" like so:
Later I wish to start doing my own research on the subjects, but for now I just want to get a quick bit of information into the game.
This this type of reference acceptable for citing text in wikipedia? Do I need to provide more information? Do I have to search for publish dates, or Authors each time I want to do this and add them in?
