Older game review aggregate Gamerankings.com is shutting down next week.
The 1999-launched game review score aggregate is shutting down on December 9th, news confirmed by their sister site Metacritic and parent company CBS.
Anyone visiting Gamerankings.com after the closure will be redirected to Metacritic, as the “entire GameRankings.com team will continue our mission to create informative game review content and bring reviews of classic games to Metacritic.”
Since the site has become mostly dormant, most of the attention to review aggregate scores has shifted to Metacritic, as well as new independent review score aggregate OpenCritic.
Pour a cold one out for the site – and make sure to gaze upon its glorious layout (which seemingly hasn’t changed since the sub-HD, 1990s era).
