Hi! How are you? Are you... are you lost? Did you stumble upon this strange website from some other scary part of the internet? Don't worry, you're safe here. We're got a varied staff with a ton of gaming experience among us. You'd do well to stay here, chat about games, comment on our news, or participate in our forums.
GameRevolution is one of the oldest gaming sites on the Internet, with well over a decade of history to it. Of course, quite a few changes have been made, even in the past six months the face of GameRevolution has changed rapidly. We've also got plenty of new readers and we're hoping to bring in even more!
You'll quickly find that GameRevolution is a uniquely independent, alternative voice in the gaming industry. Our reviews reach back generations and rival the depths of the biggest gaming sites. Sit back, relax, and take a tour of GameRevolution's recurring features, columns, and databases.
We'll update this post as new pieces are added to the great GameRevolution puzzle.
Reviews: GameRevolution has been reviewing games for decades. Looking for the verdict on a classic title? Try our database. It's huge! We've got over 3,000 reviews and we're still counting. Sure, it's a struggle. Not every game is fun to play. Most of them suck. Hey! We're not afraid to tell you what games are great and what gamers are complete shit. It helps that we've maintained our integrity through thick and thin too.
Previews: We shoot straight with our reviews, but that attitude doesn't stop there. We'll be keeping it on the level in our previews as well. Whether we're getting an exclusive first look or covering massive events like the Electronic Entertainment Expo, our preview coverage is deep, critical, and more importantly, on time!
The Manifesto: Easily a driving factor in GameRevolution's unique, unbridled industry-wide voice, The Manifesto is like the Eye of Sauron and Who's Line is it Anyway? all rolled into one, convenient stream of content.

Haiku Fridays: We're not beyond showing you dear readers a little tenderness, a little care. Sure, we've got plenty of tough love, we've got the roof over your head and we put food on the table, but everybody loves presents.
