GamerGiving is a registered 501(c)(3) charity.
The goal of GamerGiving is to facilitate gamers’ support of charity through various projects and fundraisers stemming from our love of gaming.
It is our goal to have a positive impact on as many people’s lives as possible. We plan on doing this by creating content for gamers while fostering an awareness and emphasis upon the needs of others.
By providing ways for people to help others while having fun, we hope to lower the hesitance of getting involved to the point that anyone can (and does) help out!

If you’ve been playing video games for the past 35 years like I have, it becomes increasingly difficult to be impressed by one. There’s no shortage of great new games to play, but it’s rare that one is able to completely take hold of me. I’m talking the sort of games that you think about[…]
Now more than ever, indie games are a significant force in the gaming industry. The best games released each year are no longer comprised solely of so-called AAA titles with massive budgets and development teams numbering in the dozens, if not hundreds. Services like Steam’s Greenlight and Microsoft’s Independent Developer Program have helped bring these[…]
Nostalgia’s a heck of a thing. No matter how good or bad something is, having fond memories of it from your youth can totally change your perception of it. Dracula 2000 can become Citizen Kane if you have good memories of it, and going back to discover how it actually holds up can be a[…]
The year was 1993. I was 15 years old and obsessed with gaming (and still am!). Back then, the primary source of information about upcoming games and consoles was via magazines such as EGM, GameFan, and GamePro.

Being a Manc lad from birth, I’ve often espoused my love of the city whenever it comes up in conversation. From the music, to the industry, to the people who make up the city I call home, it’s a place that no matter where I travel to, there’s this irresistible pull at my heart, beckoning[…]

After the recent release of a certain Fassbender-centric movie which I shall leave my opinions for another time, I got talking to a friend who’s making her first foray into video games. After a long discussion after seeing the above film, I’d basically told her the entire plot of the franchise over the course of[…]
Back when I was a kid, in the 80’s and 90’s, arcades were ubiquitous. Every mall had one, and plenty of shopping centers did too. They were often large, multi-level places with lots of now classic coin-ops; Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat, The Simpsons, X-Men, Primal Rage, Crazy Taxi, Sunset Riders, Magic Sword, Alien vs.[…]
We’ve seen the videos. We’ve read the top 10 lists. We’ve heard the arguments. A lot of gamers firmly believe that there are, or have been, terrible game systems in the past. They’ll tell you how such and such system had no good games, was poorly designed, had a crappy controller, and generally was an[…]
