What Is Game

We aspire to the the best place on the internet to get honest opinions, reviews, and news about video games. It's no secret that gamers from all over have a hard time getting honest opinions about games. We want to help you cut through the marketing, whether you've got your own video game channel, gaming news and review site, or you want to write news and reviews with Game Sense, or you just want a place to get honest video games from honest gamers who really like video games.

We've built Game Sense from the ground up for gamers. This isn't a generic forum or user review site, it's built for gamers, by gamers to help you find great games, write reviews in an easier, quicker way, grow your gaming channel, and more. We've been gamers for a very long time, and we've spent a lot of time thinking how we can make video games better for everyone. The result is Game Sense, with a unique review system, a completely revamped and "living" score system that is calculated from several various types of gamer input (instead of arbitrarily made up numbers), and a ton of tools for gamers and people who like to talk about video games to get their voices heard and to have a place where they can know they are getting reviews and opinions from a place that won't delete negative reviews and won't lie and shill to you.

A core part of Game Sense is making sure that gamers that don't like to write or make videos can have a say in scores, rankings, and more by giving them opportunities to rate video games and vote on posts. Votes on posts will affect scores.

Everything is merit based, the more active you are and the better gamer you prove yourself to be on Game Sense, the more power you gain to change scores.

Game Sense is built from the ground up to help you grow your channel and get more readers, while building a federation of gamers who want to make video games better. All of this is free, and our top users can become Game Sense Guru and have their posts featured on our social media. All free!

Level up and gain more power to change scores by posting, rating, voting, commenting, tagging, writing descriptions, updating game information, adding games to Game Sense, and more.

Who's It For?

Gamers who want to make a difference. Whether you want to speak out against bad gaming practices, talk about video games you love, or get your gaming news, videos, and reviews from gamers who don't have ulterior motives, we want you to join us.

Game Sense lets you grow in power the more you post, vote, and rate, giving you more votes on each post, and more power to change scores.

How Does It Work?

Scores are calculated on each post's Post Topic and the votes it receives.

You choose the Post Topic, and other gamers buff or nerf your post to change the score even more.

Reviews only focus on a specific part of a game. You don't have to play the entire game to review it. You can write reviews about parts of the game you like or dislike as you play through it.

Which Games?

Game Sense has a hands off approach and lets gamers decide which games should be talked about. We trust gamer's tastes.

Our data shows most gamers don't care about a lot of games that make headlines, and there's lot of games they really like that don't make headlines in traditional video game sites.

We know not everyone likes to write reviews or make videos. You can always start by voting on existing posts to change scores. You can also rate games based on Audio, Control, Difficulty, Game Length, Gameplay, Graphics, Microtransaction Free, Overall Quality, Story, or if it's Worth Playing.
