Re: Series generalized, VideoGameSeries added for sdo-venkman release

With the description as it stands, I’m having trouble seeing how this generalisation fits with anything other than TV/Radio/Video/VideoGame.

If I was a webmaster trying to describe a series of books brought together by a publisher e.g.. 'Teen Fiction', or Harry Potter the “series of seven epic fantasy novels written by the British author J. K. Rowling” schema:Series would not look like it fitted the task to me.

The difficulty being that a bibliographic series probably doesn’t need any extra properties than are already available in CreativeWork, Book, etc, yet the currently proposed properties all seem media related.

Here is a typical description of a Series from a bibliographic point of view:
"A group of separate resources related to one another by the fact that each resource bears, in addition to its own title proper, a collective title applying to the group as a whole. The individual items may or may not be numbered.”

Against that background the current Series description doesn’t really cut it:
"A media series, e.g. TV, radio or video game.”

I’m probably a voice in the wilderness, but I would be much happier with a really generic Series as a sub-Type of CreativeWork, with no extra properties.  Then the currently proposed version being named ‘MediaSeries’ and a sub-Type of Series.

I'm not sure I understand the decision to have properties from VideoGame on VideoGameSeries. Pretty much all of the attributes of the series can vary from game-to-game  -- especially things like cheatCodes, quests, items
