Given the funds, I'm going to say ign. The lack of any form of writing talent, or objectivity in reviews make the site rather useless.

How can you not like Kotaku? They have the most variety and wide ranging opinions. Articles are 50x better than gamespot. And yeah I like the forums of GS the best, but its honestly the worst gaming site I pay the least amount of heed to their reviews, and their gaming articles are really lacking.

Yea, I dont get the Kotaku hate. I don't really read any of their reviews but their other articles are usually decent.

Gamespot is above-average. They've done a pretty good job of not employing total scumbags, so even if their content isn't exceptional I have to give them props on that.

Oh, and the Kotaku hate might come from how their middling game news blog and cheap controversy-baiting articles are constantly swamped in "nerd culture" sh!t with no connection to video games. Mostly regarding the plastic anime girls/anime girls wearing headphones/anime girls dressed as Hitler that Brian Ashcraft is touching himself to this week.

One thing I do like about Kotaku is that they don't give scores in their review.

I think GameSpot is pretty bad, no other site I know of supports System Wars, they don't even have that section. And this site just let's people run around and act like dicks without consequences. That's not the kind of community I want to be a part of. I also don't really like GS articles and pieces and I find their reviews to be very unhelpful on average.

I like IGN, I like the staff like Greg Miller and the community there is much more polite and informed. I also like Giant Bomb as well, very sensible and easy to get along with. Kotaku I don't really understand, I think the name sounds weird and it feels very unprofessional to me.

Eurogamer is ok, but I don't like DF. But I'm outta here because the fanboys will get mad at me for posting this.

The ONLY reason to visit Gamespot is the Forums. Almost every other aspect of the website is a joke.

Out of those, 9GN. GameInformer has a website so I would have picked that.

I would say Game Trailers, but I like their Retrospectives. So I'm going to go with Kotaku.  AAllxxjjnn
Right? Their retrospectives are the sh*t

NineGeeEn Their reviews are very inaccurate and imprecise. At least that's how I find it.

I literally only visit GameSpot for the forums, which are great. Everything else about the site is pretty meh, or bad. Reviews used to be great way back in the day with Jeff Gerstman and Kevin Van Ord, but now the site has become so bloated with crappy content I don't even go to the homepage anymore, just the forums.

I use Gamespot for the forums. I actually can't believe how bad other websites forums are though compared to this one.

Other than that, it sucks. The articles here are sparse Especially as a Nintendo fan, there is nothing reported. The Nintendo crew over at IGN are pretty good. And generally my favorite all-purpose website is Eurogamer.

That's like the 10th time you've said that. If you're going to leave, just f*cking leave.:lol:

OT, IGN is the single worst gaming site out there.

I don't get all the hate fro Kotaku. They've got interesting and sometimes v. funny) articles. I hate all the weaboo otaku stuff, but I suppose that's what the blog is centred around in the first place.

GS I like, but only for the forums and reviews. McShea, Van Ord and Watters and great. People here just lose the rag with them because their favourite game didn't get the number they were looking for.
