CNET names VG247 third top gaming blog in the world

Monday, 16th November 2009 15:20 GMT By Patrick Garratt


CNET gadget blog Crave has named VG247 the third top gaming blog in the world.

Gawker’s Kotaku was named as number one, with AOL’s Joystiq coming second.

“This certainly has the most momentum of all the UK blogs on this list, having recently scooped three gongs at the Games Media Awards,” said the site.

“They were well-deserved too: the writing is excellent, and it covers all the important news with a twist of humour.”

We’re so awesome. Hit the link for the full list. Thanks, PySk!

    I only found this site a few months back, but now i’m on it ten times a day.

    I used to go on IGN but one visit to the site and you’ve seen all there is to offer.

    I just want to read the latest news and maybe drop a comment, this site is perfect for people with a real interest in games

    @ Patrick Garratt

    Yes. Specifically, you should notice where I mentioned that Wipeout HD just got ads patched in. That’s after you’ve bought it. Ads patched in. After. Very bad news for gamers everywhere, that they can do this. People are up in arms and so forth. On the internet and so on.

    You should make a post about that. For the people. The People!

    And congrats!

    Pat did have a beard when I met him the other week. He didn’t sound very Russian, though.
