Polygon

Top Gaming Blog

Unlike the other big names on this list, Polygon didn’t start as a magazine. Rather, it launched directly into digital space, where it quickly rose to prominence due in part to its original “star-studded,” sixteen-person staff—former editors-in-chief and major contributors of other competing video-gaming blogs. And rather than writing about games, the ensemble staff chose to focus on the people playing them and making them.That’s how Polygon was shaped, and that’s how they continue to shape the gaming community today: by focusing on the culture and not the products. After all, they consider themselves a “website for the renaissance gamer.”

That’s what GamesRadar+ is—a super Saiyan blog.
