Any good gaming news sites?

Postby Gibby » Sun Jun 07, 2015 9:33 am

I used to browse RPS a lot, but they are a bit... well... yeah. Nowadays anyway. Any decent alternatives that aren't plastered with adverts to the point the layout is shit?

I just use Eurogamer and Reddit nowadays. Most of the other outlets are either filled with twats or strike me as just being paid off to promote stuff by publishers.

http://www.reddit.com/r/Games tends to have more serious content on. But http://en.reddit.com/r/gaming/ can also have stuff on sometimes, just be warned that 90% of the time it's complete and utter tosh.

Reddit is good because it tends to be really up to date and often will link to smaller news sites that you'd never have even heard of otherwise.

Pretty much Reddit/r/Games and Gaint Bomb these days.

Also browse NeoGAF but...meh. It's good for news content but the actual discussion leave something to be desired

I peruse Kotaku and Polygon, but not really for news as such, more just general articles.

I can't stand Polygon. Some of their articles are so far up their own arses it beggars belief.
