Feedback: What would you like to see on GamePlayer?

As I’m writing this, I’m sitting at work looking at the homepage and trying to work out what articles have been neglected recently. Have I done enough Previews? Have I done enough Classic Reviews? Are there too many Reviews? Are there not enough Videos?

But then an idea struck me, like a lightning bolt from Zeus (or just a regular lightning bolt… I guess…)! What if there were people I could ask about these things? People who actually would be reading whatever I decided to write anyway? Do such people exist?

I’m assuming they do, please don’t point out otherwise. It makes me cry.

So with that in mind, I thought I’d put out these questions to the people of GamePlayer – whomever they are and wherever they may be. I don’t necessarily have high hopes considering the amount of submissions for articles lately (or lack thereof) but there’s no harm in trying right?

Basically I’m reaching out to anyone reading this. Is there something you want to read more of? Like more reviews? Or more gaming news? Do you want to know about Flash-based online games or more of the AAA title stuff? Do you think I should stop making lame jokes or are my jokes totally awesome?

On second thought, don’t answer that last question either.

Anyway, if you have any suggestions for GamePlayer, either leave them in the comments for this article or post them up on the GamePlayer Facebook page. I’m trying to build a site which people find interesting and want to come back to (without me spamming/flaming them about it) so let me know what you like and I will print more of it.

Or you could always, you know, write an article yourself?

But that sounds like a lot of work. I mean, I know this one guy who couldn’t come up with an idea so he went on this massive rant about getting people to put forward ideas…

Let’s just say it didn’t end well.

 

And, for all you guys who stayed to the end, here is a video of a man laughing at a goat:

    I'd like to see more of the things that were on the classic GamePlayer site (or the site of 2007-9, which is when I stumbled across it).

    I want to see editorials on gaming related things like those series of articles I read here a few years back about how to be a fanboy. There were four articles, one for each home console and one for PC. I don't remember specifically the content but I remember that they were super fun to read and I read those articles around 10 times. There were other articles like that too but I don't remember them too well - it was more than two years ago after all.

    I could be wrong (maybe I just can't find them), but from what I see on the home page, all you have is reviews, previews and news. Those things are fine, but I never went to GamePlayer for those things. You can find the latest review for whatever game anywhere. I came to this website for articles that simply couldn't be found anywhere else. Like those fanboy articles. I loved those! More of that please!

    I used to visit this website almost every day, back in the day. Then one day I clicked on the GamePlayer bookmark and your site didn't come up. Same thing the next day and the month after that. Then I knew you were gone but sometimes I would think "damn, I wish I could read some GamePlayer" and one day, I tried your address and it worked! The excitement I had was short lived though. I saw that your beloved editorials and fantastic, obscure articles were replaced with run-of-the-mill previews, news and reviews. I want to see more of those editorials and obscure articles. I'm sure the GamePlayer staff have it in them.

    Though, I would like to see an "archives" of old GamePlayer material. I want to see all those articles that were written before the site change. When the background was dark and mysterious. I want to see all those. In particular, How to be a Fanboy. Did I mention I loved those articles?

    I also think the old site layout and colour scheme was better than the current one, but that's just my opinion.

      Hey mate, thanks for your input.

      This isn't the same GamePlayer that you are referring to, they went out of business and my parent-company (Pixel Capital) bought the domain. They were run by Derwent Howard and had writers like Mark Serrels (editor of Kotaku) and Chris Stead (editor of Game Informer).

      Unfortunately, I have no access to any of the previous content which was on the site as we only own the new domain name.

      While I totally get where you are coming from, unique content (opinion articles, comparisons, lists, fan boy stuff) is some of the best content a site can offer and is the most interesting. But keep in mind that its no longer a company or a "team" which run GamePlayer, it's only one person (me) and I just can't come up with that much variety of content and keep it at a high standard.

      The trade off is to present reviews, news and previews and fit in opinion and other articles where I can and when I know I can deliver high-quality content.

      At the end of the day a lot of what you say about the content on the site resonates with me, but I just don't have the manpower to make changes to the scale you are referring to.

      Sorry if you were misled or are disappointed, and I hope you will find reasons to make the new GamePlayer one of your sources of gaming information and opinion - if not to the scale that the old GamePlayer once was.

      Thanks again for replying, I'm trying my best to get the site to a good place again but it is more likely to happen in months than days.
