While Giant Bomb is undoubtedly my favourite place for game news, reviews, and whatnot, I visit several game sites regularly. Everyday, I make a point to visit GameSpot, IGN, 1UP, Destructoid, Gamasutra, Destructoid, Kotaku, G4, Game Life Wired Blog, Joystiq, Games Radar, Game Trailers, Game Informer, and of course, Giant Bomb. There are some I adore and some I don't trust much, but I visit them all anyways.

So where else do you get your information from? What are your favourites? Are there any sites in particular that you don't place much trust in?

I (no doubt naively) don't want this to devolve into "X site is shit, thus you are shit, Y site is better, fuck you." Just want to see where the rest of ya get your news.

I just go to Giantbomb and Gameinformer.

EDIT: I also go to screwattack from time to time. I think much of there content is geared for an audience with a little more juvenile tastes then mine (God that sounds pretentious) but I like the staff.

GameSpot because of their forums. I don't look at any of their content besides the occasional video review.

None. I'm subscribed to a bunch of gaming youtubers but besides that GB is pretty much my only source for gaming stuff.

Gameinformer.com, ign.com (mostly just podcast beyond and gamescoop!), yahtzee over on the escapist, the CAG cast, and as of recent spill.com and the loading bar

Aside from GB, I go to gamespot, IGN or gametrailers on occasion. Mostly for video reviews or previews.

And I frequent gametz for buying/trading/selling games. But most just stick to GB and GTZ.

Gamespot, Penny Arcade and The Escapist. I go to The Escapist solely for Zero Punctuation videos. I also have a digital subscription to Game Informer.

The only other gaming site I regularly actually visit is Rock Paper Shotgun. I have dozens of sites feeding into my RSS reader though.

Gamespot since the switch a couple of times a week, otherwise just GiantBomb.

Giant Bomb, Joystiq, IGN (its awful I know), Kotaku, Polygon (they really need to change their format), and Gamespot.

Extra Credits, Gameinformer, G4, Destructoid, and Siliconera on the regular. There is other stuff on my feed, but I don't necessarily frequent those sites.

Destructoid. I think that whole staff of people they have working there are pretty damn cool.

I'm usually around on GameSpot for forums, not so much content anymore. NeoGaf is the board I'm on most since it's the most active and gets the most new stuff first.

#27 Posted by Strife777 (2083 posts) -

Joystiq, Game Informer and Gametrailers mostly. I'll visit IGN and such when they have exclusive or early previews on a game. I also tend to take a glance at reviews all over.

Giant Bomb is still my number one.

Rock Paper Shotgun and Eurogamer, but I read very little of the content on either of them.

I really don't visit any other sites unless I hear something on their podcast I want to check out. Or the GB guys reference something.

I do check SRK, I play winner and Eventhubs from time to time, and on super rare occasion Penny Arcade.

Lately tons of gamespot, since there is more giantbomb there than here, and joystiq.

I go to a lot of other sites just to listen to their podcasts, but none to actually read news and watch videos.

#32 Edited by Zaccheus (1984 posts) -

I watch some videos on Gametrailers although that's kind of pointless since GB posts all the important stuff in a timely manner these days. I used to check Kotaku, but it really feels shitty these days and I hardly ever read it.

Lately I've been visiting Destructoid and The Escapist, but now I want to visit Rock Paper Shotgun more often. I'm thinking about not visiting Screwattack anymore because the content isn't that great and the people organizing the site seem WAY stuck in the past for video games. They seem more into entertainment than actually covering VG news.

I've heard a lot about RockPaperShotgun in the last few months, and just checked it out myself. I'll have to add it to the daily rounds. I also forgot to mention the Penny Arcade Report, which does some pretty good editorials courtesy of Ben Kuchera.

The Escapist and Penny Arcade. Occasionally I'll poke around other sites like Kotaku, Gamespot, or gaming YouTube channels.

Youtube (so that I way I can watch easely the video content of other sites like Destructoid , Gametrailers , Classic Game Room and others) and Io9 (that one I kinda don't like because of that awful Gawker layout , but I really like the content) and some other sites that I just browse the main page from time to time like Endgadget and DYNG.

Mainly Gamespot, for its overall content. Gametrailers for its video reviews and screwattack, IGN for its first reviews on everything. Giantbomb for.... the old gamespot crew? That's just it really. I don't care for their reviews, nor their coverage. They're always late, reviews one game out of twelve and... some bad quicklooks. When Patrick decides he circles around, or when Brad dies all the time, or when Ryan decides the game sucks and then immediately start sucking at it non-stop.

Yeah, Gamespot for their forums and nothing more. I have been at GS forums since 2002, so its hard to leave. Other than that, GAF is my source for everything else. I go to some community sites like mgsforums.org, or some alright developer communities (basically Bungie.NET and nothing else). Rockpapershotgun is alright. Polygon has a good staff from what it seems, but I hate the widescreen, images everywhere BS. I like HTML links and narrow format.

Really none. But I do listen to Game Scoop, CAGCast, and Game Informer Pods. I also get the D-Toid videos on downcast, but I can't decide how much I hate the hosts and dont know why I continue to download. Its just nice to have video I think.

This. There's no one else on the same level really.

Rock Paper Shotgun is pretty boss, but that's not really for news.

Aside from Giantbomb, obviously, I always read Joystiq for news and articles. I would also like to give a shout out to two British sites that have excellent writers, communities and podcasts, 360Gamercast and Midlifegamer.net.

I visit Screwattack. Some of their stuff is really funny. Stuttering Craig is the best. 
 
I also visit X360A.Org for achievement guides, otherwise that site is pretty shit.  
  
I want to get into Polygon, but their current design is a little too clustered for my taste.

I know! As much as I like the writing, the layout is just awful.

They can't get their own style soon enough.
