List Rules Video game blogs and websites that are still actively maintained.

If you’re a video gamer, you’ll want to check out the top gaming blogs and game review sites weekly—if not daily. However, not many people have time to check every single gaming blog and gaming review website, so it usually just comes down to checking a few select ones. So which ones should get the lion’s share of your daily browsing time? These are the top ones according to gamers.

In the early days of blogging, users would traditionally find blogs about video game reviews, previews, cheats, tips, and related subjects using blog search engines, including Technorati, Icerocket, Google Blog Search and others. Since the explosion of social media services such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ and others, search has become less and less significant as a traffic draw. Now, getting a particular blog post or article to go "viral" on Facebook will have far greater significance than optimizing visibility in search engines. Add in the volume of links submitted to aggregation sites and services like Reddit and StumbleUpon, and it's easier than ever to find video game news sites and blog posts.

So what makes a gaming blog or website truly great? Is it regular updates? Editorial articles? Unbiased reviews? The answer is probably a combination of all those qualities and more. The top sites usually have plenty of editorial articles along with previews and news of upcoming games as well as the usual reviews. In addition, many top gaming blogs maintain their own live streaming channels on Twitch and YouTube. That way, you can watch other people play bad video games instead of having to play them yourself.

So which gaming blogs and websites do people usually like? Some of the top video gaming blogs include sites such as GiantBomb, which was created by ex-GameSpot editors Jeff Gerstmann and Ryan Davis. In a twist of fate however, the parent company of GameSpot acquired Giant Bomb a few short years later.

Other top gaming blogs and game review sites according to fans include Polygon and Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Most of these gaming blogs are cross-platform, covering the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and PC. There are a few that are platform specific however, such as PC Gamer, PlayStationLifeStyle, and Nintendokusou.

So vote for your favorite gaming blogs below so that others may check out the top sites as well. Curious to see where your favorite site is ranked? Use the search function at the top of the list to find it. If you don’t see a particular gaming blog listed, then add it so that others may vote of it. After all, this is supposed to be a comprehensive list of gaming blogs.
