what's the best site?

I've looked at several "gaming" sites recently and i'm kind of dissapointed with most/all of them. What's a good web site that does maybe some periodicals and is more focused on pc games? Like previews and what not. I'd prefer respectable you know... where crappy games get crappy reviews. I used to like ign, but now it's bloated and i'm not paying for what i can get for free if you know what i mean. :-p

anyway, tell me some of the ones you think are the best so i can check them out.

More about what site
  1. I agree with you; blow IGN... Anyone has some alternatives?
  2. guessing uve tried gamespot? normally has good reviews
  3. Gamespot? Really? Unless things have changed notably since about 8 years ago I beg to differ. I can't say for sure though because I haven't paid them any attention for about 8 years because they were consistently garbage back then.

    I would be interested in a good gaming news site. Tom's games is cool but doesn't really cover the majority of the games that come out.
  4. I personally follow a few sites...

    Kotaku and Joystiq are great all-round gaming news sites, while they don't cover absolutely everything they do cover a nice amount.

    Then there's Joystiq's sister sites...

    Xbox 360 Fanboy
    Wii Fanboy
    DS Fanboy
    PS3 Fanboy
    PSP Fanboy
    WoW Insider

    And if you're looking for MMO news, hit up Massively.com
  5. I have looked at gamespot in the past, and i'm not to hot on them. I also checked out kotaku and Joystiq, They're okay for news updates and what not, but not quite the layout and content level i was looking at. Also, mostly looking for pc games... uhg... this is getting difficult especially after the new second take and what they said about ign... I used to love them till they became bloated and a pay site.

    thanks for all the input... i'm still hunting for that perfect game site though. :-p
  6. check out 1up. they have pretty much everything, including PC games.
  7. ahh, forgot about one up.

    I found one erlier today that i kind of got addicted to it's www.gamesradar.com

    Has a pretty clean layout, the reviews are pretty straight foreward and so simplistic that it doesn't ruin the game for you. I'll still keep looking, but the writers seem to have a good sense of humor about them.
