What is GGGames, or 'GGG' as we also call it?
GGGames is an unbiased game review site. We, the editors, have the deepest and purest love for video games in all its forms. With our passion and dedication for games we will explore the phenomenon, culture and art that is video gaming.
We do not believe that games have expiration dates, and we prefer not to divide video games into the categories such as "retro" or "indie".
We strive to write reviews that anyone can understand, regardless of prior gaming experience. We avoid using obscure references and confusing gamer lingo.
Why is this site needed?
We are independent, not afraid to say what we think, and we know what we are talking about. We want to give our readers an alternate and second look into the video games that have been released. We are hardcore gamers, not annoying fanboys nor obnoxious haters. Our aim with the reviews is to explain the good and the bad in detail of any given game in hopes that this will give you a balanced and sincere look at what goes into any given game.
Hopefully this site will help you find new favorite games.

Where are the score-ratings?
GGGames do not use a score-system. Our reviews are entirely based on our personal experiences.
We do not see the point in trying to measure graphics, sound and gameplay functions in terms of numbers. Instead we try to analyze each game by its actual features and content.
The box art of (insert game) isn't right.
Where box art / official covers aren't available, we try to use other official art such as posters, info sheets, concept art or title screens. If you know or have official covers of a game what we don't, you're more than welcome to contact us.
I disagree with what you wrote in (insert game) review.
We try to be as relevant and objective as possible in our reviews, but even so we are only human beings. We also encourage you to write a review of your own and send it to us – if you want us to put it on the site.
