Website of the Month
@Technology & Internet
Video Games
Examples: GameFAQs, GameSpot, Destructoid
Hosted by Terabyte and yours truly; if you have any questions or concerns regarding WotM, please forward them to any of us.
Welcome!
Website of the Month is a contest where, each month, we get to nominate and vote for new websites depending on a particular theme, and choose a winner. Winner would then go on to be featured in our forum-splash. Without further ado, let's get straight to business!
Guidelines
Every month, we'll be having a set theme. All websites that you nominate must range within it, or else, they would not make it to voting round.
  • You're allowed to nominate your own website, but it's recommended not to, as it could be seen as advertising to some people.
  • Whenever a website wins, they would be added to Hall of Fame list for said year. Once they're there, they cannot be nominated again until next year.
  • All websites that you nominate must be appropriate; if they are not, they will not be counted.
  • Theme for this month is video games, so all websites that you place here must fit that.
  • You'll be getting an emblem for participation, and if one of your nominations wind up winning, you'll get an additional one.
  • Nominations would last for about 14 days; to nominate, just fill out the form below and post a reply!
  • You may nominate only three websites per month.
Hall of Fame
Currently not available; please check back next month.
Nomination
Website name: This is where the website's name should go.
Website link: Website's address goes here.
Description: This is optional, but if you like, you may give us a brief description of it.



Relevant Advertising!

It says in the description that this competition is for new websites, yet the examples (and everything nominated so far) have been around at least several years? Anyway, I'm going to honour the description and post up a newly created site.

Website name: Happy 25th Birthday Game Boy
Website link: http://ihatetomatoes.net/happy-25th-birthday-game-boy/
Description: While not overly chocked full of content, this site is a really good portfolio piece. As it presents an aesthetic experiment, it both embodies decent social media elements, artistic work, and general design strength from the designer in question. A simple, yet lovely tribute to Game Boy and its 25th birthday success.

Oh, I have a definite favorite. There's tons of site giving reviews, FAQs, lists and whatnot. But this...

Website name: I actually think it's called "GOG.com" simply. Used to be called "Good Old Games".
Website link: http://www.gog.com/
Description: Remember those good old games you used to play in the 90's? Or the 80's even? Or even the 00's. Those who can't really be found in regular stores anymore, not even online. Well, you will find those games here. A site selling downloads of your old gems so that you can relive them (or try for the first time!) in present day, because the files are all prepared and ready to be installed on your modern system. Another good thing - the games are cheap as they are, but there are often themed sales going on!


Heh, this totally sounds like an advert for gog xD Also Gav, I don't think she meant that the websites have to be new, just that we vote for new kinds of websites each month.

Do Wikis count? Because I have one (many, actually, but one to nominate) that I love.

Website name: The Unofficial Ultimate Elder Scrolls Pages
Website link: http://uesp.net/wiki/Main_Page
Description: I just love this site, and it's one of the "gaming" sites that I visit most often, especially when I first bought Skyrim. It's helpful for all aspects of The Elder Scrolls games, including quests, marriage, skills, and pretty much everything else. I also love to read up on all of the lore, which allows me to learn things from games that I haven't had the chance to play, or realize things that I never noticed while playing, and it lets me connect and enjoy the lore of The Elder Scrolls so much more.
__________________
A burdened heart sinks into the ground
A veil falls away without a sound
Not day nor night, wrong nor right
For truth and peace you fight
Sing with me a song of silence and blood
The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
Can no one hear my cry

Embrace the dark you call a home,
Gaze upon an empty, white throne
A legacy of lies,
A familiar disguise
Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
Lost in thoughts all alone
In the white light, a hand reaches through
A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
Waking dreams fade away,
Embrace the brand-new day
Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
The light scatters to the sky above
Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
Lost in thoughts all alone


In endless dreams, countless realms collide
Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
But all dreams come to an end,
Just whispers on the wind
Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
Endless dawn came but not without a price,
Lost in the waves there glimmers, a pale blue stone.
I think of you, all alone

You forgot the most important feature of all. All games, both old and new (yes, it has modern games as well) are completely DRM-free.

Description: I came across this site on YouTube, watching E3 2013 and I've been hooked ever since. They are friendly, formal in video presentation and publicly cover, analyze, and discuss information from game trailers, footage, ect. Personally, I like their videos because of the 'true' professionalism that have, yet at the same time they are still laxed and sport a very common feeling for the viewer to watch, as if they were there a bit (It might be me... I don't know). They are primarily Nintendo coverage though, but that is all I care about!
