Announcement: Game Front Launching Enhanced PC Gaming Coverage


Dear Game Front readers, file downloaders, forum lurkers, Network Site fans and volunteers, and anyone else who has loved the site since it launched way back in 2001.

When we first launched editorial coverage last summer, we set out to give equal attention to every platform under the sun: consoles, PC, mobile, browser—whatever we could get our hands on. Our approach was to offer the “best serving of video games culture” available on the web.

In the past year, we’ve been closely observing what types of articles have struck a chord within the community. We’re always interested in what makes you yell at us in the comments, yell at each other, what gets you excited, angry and generally interested.

With these observations and a year of testing under our belts, I’m very excited to announce our brand new, enhanced editorial focus on Game Front: PC gaming!

What, why?!
This was a pretty easy decision for us to make, and it’s one we’re pumped to roll out. Game Front is known all around the world as one of the premiere destinations for PC gaming file downloads: patches, demos, modifications—that’s how we made our name, and our new additional PC-gaming focused editorial will add a welcomed harmony between our users and the articles we write.

What are you going to write about?!
PC gaming, without limitations. We’re interested in the complex geography that is PC gaming: the monuments of old retro classics, the metropolises of modern AAA titles, the crazy awesome shanty towns of user-created mods, the new tract houses of F2P, the lovable ghettos of rising indie hits. Our goal is to provide the best PC gaming coverage available anywhere, chronicling where your favorite hobby came from, where it is now, and the exciting places PC gaming is going in the future.

You can expect us to start rolling out brand new weekly features focused on stuff like: F2P games, cool indie titles, the best mods for your favorite games, tips for optimizing your system, and much more.

I’m a console gamer…this sucks.
Hold your horses. We’re not abandoning console gaming, not by a long shot. Console games are a big part of the gaming landscape. We live in a world where Steam is available on PS3, mods are coming to consoles—things are changing. We’d be foolish to turn a blind eye to developments in the console world, so fear not—Game Front will offer lots of helpful information on the world of consoles.

Plus, we have some the best multi-platform walkthrough coverage on the web, covering every major game on every platform, consoles included. That’s not going away!

In conclusion:
I’d just like to thank our users for supporting us over the years, and we can’t wait for you to read to the new Game Front. Keep an eye on the site over the next couple of weeks to catch our newest features. As always, let us know what you think of our new coverage in the comments, and feel free to email us as feedback@GameFront.com with any suggestions for topics we should cover.

We want to make Game Front the top destination on the web for PC gamers to get news, watch video, argue and share ideas, and add their own content…

Game on!

Below is a tease of the features we’ll be rolling out over coming weeks.

Yea, you should start with that column about how PC gaming is a dying genre… lol.

I have a lot of sites I visit for PC stuff. I hope this one can be as great as the others.

This is good news.

So, how much are you bastards gonna charge us for it? HMM?!?!?!?!?!?

Just like everything else on GameFront, it won’t cost you a dime. Put your wallet back in your pocket, pull up a chair, and enjoy. – Ed.
