When we first started the site, (and it’s come under various names since 1997 for numerous reasons), we were firmly focused on PC coverage. IncGamers spawned from an idea I had back in 1994 with a videogame cafe, and Elly also got to work on building the IncGamers communities around the same time (). To put it simply, we were focused on catering to an audience that shared the same gaming interests as ourselves.
Around five years ago we expanded into console coverage, the market was booming and exciting things were happening after the launch of the PS3 and 360. Since then we have been providing content on all platforms, but a few months ago I realised that consoles, while mass market, were just not floating my boat. PC was making a comeback with more interesting titles appearing once again, in-part due to the rise of crowd funding and the penetrations of delivery platforms such as Steam.
So here we are, we’ve gone full circle and we’re back to our roots. So what does that mean for you the reader? You will still be able to dive into top-notch news coverage, PC articles, industry editorials, reviews, previews, and we’ll be able to continue focusing on catering to our communities and the games they like to play
It’s an exciting time for the IncGamers.com site and the IncGamers communities. Thanks to everyone for your support and comments here on the site, keep the feedback coming, here and in our communities.
