IGN is a behemoth of video games journalism. There's no modest blog format or small team of editors here. This site is all business, which is why they get the big scoops and the big numbers. What that means for readers is exclusive content and consistently high-quality writing and video segments. IGN began in 1996 as the Imagine Games Network (in case you were wondering about the acronym), and in 2011 the Guinness Book of World Records crowned them the most-visited video games website. Seriously, that's impressive.
