Years ago, a handful of gamers from the xbox.com forums, decided they wanted a place of their own, to discuss whatever they liked without posting off topic to the Xbox forums. Years later, they wanted to dip their hand into the gaming news world and created Gamercide. This is where you are, now.
Okay, okay. There is more to this story, but it’d bore you to tears. Honestly. What you want to know, is, who are the people here? What are they like? Will I make a good fit? I will do my best to answer those questions for you. Know this, though. If this didn’t answer what you were looking for, either PM me or any of the staff, or reply to this thread. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Who are the people of Gamercide?
We are very close friends, who’ve known each other for quite awhile. In our own words, we’re as close to an internet family one can have. That’s just the honest truth. We do care about each other. We’re also very open to meeting new friends and hopefully getting to know them better. If you look around the forums a bit, you’ll see that we play an awful lot. Videogames and just plain horsing around. It’s all in good fun. We joke around just like real life friends do. If I were to give a pointer to newcomers just joining up, I’d say jump in. Jump in fully and get to know us. You can also learn a lot from lurking, so if that’s your style, no worries there, either. Have fun whichever way makes you feel more comfortable. We’ll still be here if you decide to jump in later.
What are the people here like?
We run the gamut of personalities here. We all genuinely care for each other, though. That’s the main difference. We’re a very generous community. I won’t go into details, but if you stick around long enough, you’ll witness it for yourself. We’re mostly gamers, but not all of us. I’d say that most play on the 360, but we also have many members who game on the PC, PS3, Wii and handhelds. We have artists, sports enthusiasts, audiophiles, videophiles, bookworms, movie hounds and much more. There are people of all walks of life here. All with one thing in mind. Community. It’s what we find very important. Our own community, used to be a private one. We’ve realized, though, that private communities stagnate. We wish to expand our community, and welcome more people into it. We think it’s a special and unique community, and wish to invite more into it.
Will I make a good fit?
If you’re into meeting new people and like a community, yes. You don’t have to be a gamer to become a member at Gamercide. You only need to sign in and follow the few rules we have. If you’re a troublemaker, you may not be a good fit. One never knows, though. Several longtime members of Gamercide, were once troublemakers. They embraced the community spirit we have and enjoy it. We know that people want to be noticed, and sometimes will act up in order to be noticed. You won’t need to, here.
That takes care of the people of Gamercide. What about the site itself? What’s it all about?
It’s our version of gaming news. That’s it. Honest. We don’t care for the bigger gaming news sites, and wanted to do our own. We’re not looking for page hits or advertisers. We don’t want to earn an income, off of what we love. Gaming is a hobby very dear to us. So we write our own reviews, articles and interviews. We may not get the big exclusives or the bigger swag, but what we write is ours. We’re not pandering to developers or publishers. We have integrity at Gamercide. We won’t bend over for anyone. We’ll review a game, and if it’s crap, than we write that it’s crap. Typically, the games we review, are our own. Even if they are review copies, we’ll still write up an honest review. If that means we have to buy or rent that games sequel, instead of receiving a review copy, so be it. Integrity is more important than a free game.
If any of this is something that interests you, we welcome you to our community.
