Big changes are coming to Gamecritics.com!
It’s been in the works for a long time but we’ve been preparing for a revamp of our site, and it’s nearly ready to launch. The upcoming top-to-bottom redesign will introduce a host of improvements — some immediately noticeable and some not so much.
Many upgrades will happen behind the scenes, like a smoother editing process and quicker turnaround times between when a review is written and when readers see it published.
More obvious changes include going 100% ad-free, becoming truly mobile-friendly, offering a main page that’s more streamlined, more elegant layouts for our reviews, and although comments will still be enabled, we will be closing the doors and turning off the lights on the forums in an effort to be leaner and more efficient.
Before the forums go away, we want to thank all of our long-time and regular readers and commenters who’ve made them a great place to talk about games over the years. We’ve always appreciated your participation in the site, and it’s been wonderful to see such a dedicated core of people posting. If you’re one of the forum users, please archive any valuable threads and make arrangements to connect with people outside of the message boards since that information will not be archived or retrievable once the change happens.
Thank you all for being a part of the Gamecritics community for the last sixteen years, and we look forward to building on that relationship for another sixteen, and beyond. And, as always, we welcome your comments and feedback on what we do. Once the new site goes live, we’d love to hear what you think. Please drop us a line and let us know!
Thanks for your support!
