What do they think they'll get out of it? Surely they're not dumb enough to think they'll get super popular with no consequences?

I'm furious, absolutely furious that they would use the light skin for their knockoff site. Have they no decency?!

Found another one, very similar to thevideogamesdb.com : http://gamedatabases.com/https://urlscan.io/result/ed33e141-e783-4fcc-a4c3-efccea73c2f9

This one has been up since January or so.

Also found essentrys dot com but that one is down it seems, I did find some funny spam relating to that site:

Totally not spam on quora
Totally not spam on quora

Again I would like to credit urlscan.io for this, it makes it so easy to find sites like this, you can search by file hashes, file names, domains and more.. Here is an example of a useful search.

copyscape.com is also useful for general text stuff like wikis but they have limited searches per day and limited results.

Amazon affiliate links are on every wiki page.

Found two THREE five more: (just go here to find a current list of scans of the two current site types)

Gamesyay.com sounds like it could've been a joke URL that links to Giant Bomb. I can imagine a podcast where someone made a joke about it and then someone else bought the domain because of it.

Should be taken as an endorsement to be honest that someone is stealing from here. I mean, there would be like 10 000 more lucrative sites to steal from. And not to mention youtubers with like 1 mil views per video.
