I've recently been made redundant (Damn Bankers) and have decided to try and make a modest living out of websites. My question is, do you think they is room for any new Game Sites? IGN/Gamespot etc have been around for over a decade and are huge. Gametrailers is also a very good site. Now i'm not stupid enough to try and take on any of them. For one i'm a single person with no budget, but can you have a fairly successful game site these days?
I'm not talking about 1 million members or anything, but 10,000 would be nice! I've decided to build a videogame site. It's just going to be purely videogame discussion, with news, and i suppose my stand out features are a Members Arcade where you can play classic games, with highscores, user created tournaments etc, and member blogs.
I believe i've bought a decent name Game Verdict. What do you guys think. I just opened it, 7 hours ago. Do i stand a chance? Thanks.
