Post what you want, about any game you like.
You have the freedom to post about any games you like. Between this freedom, and Game Sense's lack of commitments to publishers, you're genuinely free to share your honest opinions about whatever you like. Feel free to post about any games, popular, AAA, indie, niche, JRPG, hentai, etc. You are in control.
Focus on a few specific games you love, or spread yourself all over and share your expertise with everyone. Game Sense is about building a database of video games reviews, news, videos, and more by crowdsourcing. We want to cover as many video games as possible, from all over, and we need your help!
Game Sense is extremely generous with self-promotion.
Game Sense believes that gamers who are dedicated enough to write out quality reviews and create videos are some of gaming's biggest fans. We want to share your views, opinions, and knowledge with everyone we can! Which is why we want to help you promote yourself!
All we ask is that you are transparent, and you make your Game Sense name the same as your channel or what you're promoting. You can promote your own game and add it to Game Sense too!
Don't spray and pray, find what works for you.
Game Sense gives you quality analytics based on your posts. Break down how popular your posts are based on when you post, what game you posted about, and what type of post you made. Don't just make random videos and hope people show up. Learn what your strengths are and focus on them with Game Sense Analytics.
Knowing what works and what doesn't will help you grow, and Game Sense analytics lets you see where your strongest points are.
You can make a difference, even if you don't like to write.
There's a lot of gamers with great opinions and a lot of knowledge, but they just don't like to write. You can rate video games based on their game play, graphics, controls, and more. You can rate if you don't like to write, or you can rate games even when you post.
Rating games (or publishers, developers, localizers, gaming consoles, etc) affects their scores, just like writing posts do.
Keep track of your video games.
You can track games you are playing, want to play, or stopped playing. You can also filter news, videos, reviews, and more based on what's on your backlog.
Make lists of your favorite or least favorite games, for any reason.
Everyone loves a top list. You can easily make your own and share it. If you've posted about the games on your list, people looking at your list will see your posts first.
You can vote on posts to change scores
Vote whether you agree or disagree with a post and the post's Post Topic. Your vote will make that post more or less powerful, changing the influence on the score that post has.
Talk to gamers.
You can comment on other posts and speak with other gamers.
Build your reputation as a gamer.
The more involved in Game Sense you become, the more powerful you will become when changing scores. You'll also earn perks, like earning more votes on posts, too!
Game Sense is open to anyone. Whether you just want to post about video games or manage your games, want to post videos from your channel, or want to update and add your game to Game Sense.
You can talk about any video games you want. New, old, AAA, indie, games you made for fun, etc. You can even talk about adult games, just keep your posts clean of adult content.
Yes, as long as you're keeping your posts non-Adult and you're not doing things like posting anime tiddies.
At the time of writing this, Game Sense is funded as a hobby project by a life long gamer. We've spent a lot of time optimizing code and the website's performance in general, so it costs much less to host than a lot of websites. We have no advertising budget and only spread via word of mouth, so any bit you can tell others about Game Sense (if you like us) is a huge help! So is joining and posting! Game Sense was built from the ground up knowing that money would be tight. We didn't want to have to use technology that would require money and us begging you for a lot of money. We have already seen gaming sites ask for solid 5 figures from gamers and then disappear after running poorly for a few years. That was never our intention and it's certainly not a based thing to do.
It's common for websites who give you free stuff to harvest your personal information and sell it. We don't do that. We have a much more interesting way to make money with Game Sense when it gets bigger. One that will benefit developers, gamers, and will help Game Sense grow. But we are not yet big enough to share details, and I don't want to sound concieted but this idea has not been done before and I'm pretty sure a larger website would just steal the idea. So buckle up and join us and help us grow to see what happens!
Posts that you write belong to you, but you give Game Sense permission to use your posts on gamesense.co (and our social media sites) how we like.
Absolutely! You are free to post your own videos, articles from other sites, and more. We just ask that you make it transparent and obvious that you're promoting yourself by using your same name and branding.
A lot of thought was put into how we could make Game Sense more than just a typical user review site. We believe, that through some new mathematical scoring systems we designed, we can create meaningful scores based on a video game's news, videos, reviews, and miscellaneous posts, without them having to be reviews. We can then break each post's attributes down for you to filter them out and see how specific posts affect a score.
We believe in giving gamers to speak freely about any games they find interesting. We work hard to use as few third party options as possible so fewer outside sources have influence over Game Sense's content. Our only major rule is that you avoid political preaching, i.e. talking about how you personally feel your personal politics affect your game. You are free, however, to talk about how political influences have affected a game (like a game giving in to censorship because of "outrage").
