    I would like to start a website that will have reviews and walkthroughs of games and maybe add anime and other interests later on by everyday gamers, I know a lot of big name sites do this but it is the best idea i have had so far what do you think

    yah very true, but i thought a blog would just be me speaking my opinion on games and who wants to listen to that, but i really would like to play with my web site building abilities and with games being my greatest interest I am trying to figure out something that I can make or work on that is involved with games and will make a great web page or even just a good one.

    think of key words that you want from the site

    video games gamer gamers vg xbox wii nintendo live online

    etc

    compile a list then choose a couple from the list

    adjective noun or noun adjective

    hardcore gamers.com or games online

    or you can use verbs too

    like addicting games.com

    too large a market -- you will not survive.

    He'd have to stick to sub-niches.

    I.e. only certain style games, sites dedicated to a series etc.

    it is possible -- I made a bundle in the poker niche` market. I registered a domain for each U.S. state and then created a great home game posting system and forum system. The forums included 'global' forums that integrated into the site -- but provided cross-site posting so a site with few members still received new content daily. It was making $26,000+/month in its prime. Too bad the safe port act had to fuck it all up.
     
  12. unless you developed a blog and somehow got to the best news before all the big sites out there and marketed your site well, you would be able to COMPETE with the other sites. other than that, you'd be wasting your time.

    I am not necessarily looking to make any money here or compete with the big name companies it is more of using a interest i have to make a website and if it succeeds awesome otherwise it will be fun to work with and use

    Thank you for the ideas Yuppy and necromancer i may think of focusing it more into a certain genre or something like that
