Our Story

GamePress got its start in a college dorm room, fueled by instant ramen and tofu. Almost three years later, we’ve grown to be a thriving community of 100+ contributors and now generate millions of monthly pageviews.

Our journey has been a tough one. Unlike companies like Discord, Reddit, or Fandom who’ve raised hundreds of millions of dollars from venture capital investors, GamePress is not venture funded. As a result, we get to make decisions from the perspective of a reader. Have you noticed Reddit looking more like Facebook or seen the intrusive ads on Fandom? Our independence allows us to make community-driven decisions, not revenue driven ones. GamePress is and always will be community first. Unlike other wiki sites, we compensate creators for their efforts. Unlike the vast majority of ad-driven companies, we never sell your data to third parties, have paywalls, or clutter the site with intrusive ads.

Our independence has its downsides. Our reliance on an ad-driven model in addition to our lack of outside funding means that GamePress operates on a very tight budget. A bad month for ad revenue can cripple us. If a game’s popularity declines, our revenue does too. In addition, ad-driven models incentivize clickbaity content that is designed to get a lot of views, and we don’t want to start down that path. We believe in creating valuable content like guides and metagame analysis, often the result of thorough research and experience. All these factors make it difficult to build a sustainable, ad-driven, “community-first” company.

GamePress Boost is a way for the community to support what we do. The more GamePress is user-supported, the freer we are to grow GamePress with a focus on a community-first future. We want to keep the player's interests at heart, always-- and that means streamlining the grind, rerolling efficiently, and solving the game's mysteries for the most fun experience. If you've ever found our content clarifying or helpful in some way, consider supporting the creators that make it all possible.

Boost FAQ
So it’s a GP subscription service?

Kind of. GamePress Boost is a way for users to directly support us and our writers. GP Boost will give members ad-free viewing, the power to decide which team their contributions will be put toward, and more at a later date.

Will your platform be changing for free users?

GamePress will not be making any big changes to its pages for the average user.

The biggest change that the average user might encounter would be a thin banner at the top of each page linking to this message.

We will not paywall our content or add pop-ups asking for your support. While we need your support right now, we hope that our dedication to the user experience will be appreciated.

What payment methods are supported?

Paypal and most credit and debit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diner’s Club.

We use a trusted payment system through Braintree, a division of PayPal, to handle our subscription. Every month, the amount you decide to subscribe to us will be charged under [GamePress Media, Inc]. If you have any questions about payments, please contact us directly at [email protected]
