L33tzombie's Top 10 Video Game Websites
Top Ten Websites
Member Name: L33tzombie
Top Ten Websites
Advantages: Anything game-related
These websites can be anything from reviewing websites The Guardian Newspaper to game news websites like IGN. We'll start at number ten and work our way up to number one; the best video game website.
10. Game Freakz
This New Zealand-based website is mainly for gaming news rather than reviews but they do have a nice selection of reviews too. Although a little late with it's news, this is a good place to go for in-depth descriptions of your favourite franchises. Also don't expect to find many sleeper-hits on here as this website mainly deals with AAA and mainstream games.
9. GameSpot UK
One of the best news and reviews websites from the UK. They cover most sleeper-hits and also most of your favourite AAA titles as well as a rumour blog where the community can get together to discuss rumours surrounding video games and even confirm them. However they still need to update the blog since the last post was from April 2012.
8. The Escapist Magazine
Time to go back to the other side of the world again as this website is based in Australia and is home to the infamous reviewer, Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw but better known as 'Zero Punctuation'. As well as news and reviews, The Escapist is home to many authors (including Yahtzee) who write interesting articles about video games like "Why Humour and Realism Don't Mix" and "Unpopular Gaming Opinions".
Okay, maybe this isn't "technically" a website but this Youtube Channel is home to one of the most famed game reviewers, TotalBiscuit. Also known as TotalHalibut and The Cynical Brit. He provides a plethora of videos which include new releases, old releases, good releases and bad releases. It's worth subscribing to this legend of a gamer if you like laughs mixed with all of the seriousness of gaming.
Metacritic is more of a general review site. Whilst reviewing many mainstream video games, Metacritic also reviews music, films and TV. The reviews are easy to understand, reliable and not short on variety. A brilliant site!
The best Europe-based gaming website to go to for News, Reviews, Trailers and more! This is basically Europe's version of IGN. Just a general gaming website but also much more than meets the eye.
4. IGN Entertainment
I bet you're wondering why this isn't first.. well it wouldn't be a very exciting list if the website that is first place was obvious. But still, even though it's fourth place, this website is a gem among the gaming community. Releasing the best news, reviews, gameplay videos and sneak peeks for many years, this website will always at-least be, in my top five.
(To save time, i'll shorten the top 3's descriptions so you can quickly get to number one!)
This website is more for gaming news and viral videos than gaming reviews although if a game does get reviews positively Kotaku, you know that it's worth playing. Though the interface of the website is a little confusing, it's still worth a bookmark.
The best website to go to for funny video game spoofs and viral videos. Also a reliable place to go for news updates! Now enough jibber-jabber; on to the one and only best video game-based website.
Yes that's right, this is my favourite website to go to for anything game-related, they've got it all. You name it, they do weekly podcasts, reviews, video reviews and much, much more! You should totally go look at what they have got in store, you won't regret it.
Summary: Roosterteeth ftw!
