From the days of the old Yahoo Geocities and similar websites websites would often create a links page and share all of the cool websites as a source of reference for people who were looking for similar content. In today’s age of big search engines, that seems to have fallen to the wayside. This throwback to a by gone age I think is important for us to share all of the really cool places that we know about on the web where you might find really cool and useful gaming content and not even know it.
Please enjoy and if you don’t see something you think we should have let us know by sending us an email to [email protected].
