If specified, all pages tagged with this templates are automatically added to a category with this name. This parameter represents the "static" part of the category name and the first part of the category links (the second being game names given via games in brackets). For example, if you want the template to add pages to "Category:Merge suggested (Fallout)", "Category:Merge suggested (Fallout 2)", "Category:Merge suggested (Fallout 3)" and so forth, this would need to be "merge suggested".

If games has not been specified, the page is added to a single category based on category. For example, if category is set to "merge suggested" and games has not been specified, the template will add the page to "Category:Merge suggested".
