    I believe that if we reviewed games it could bring more people into the site. It has to be a honest review. Beyond that we could build guides around that game. It would be a lot of work in my opinion but it would be worth it.

    What games would you suggest? Are there some you're interested in writing review for?

    I believe in a variety of games. From first person to city builders. Even some MMO's in the mix. I haven't really done a lot of research in what's popular in the gaming world.

    I've suggested a ... hmmm ... lets call it a "Stratics award" in the past, for MMO's.
    It would require possibly a team to facilitate tests of different aspects of a game, ranging from "help tickets" and "server lag" to "replayability at level cap" etc.
    My proposal for funding it would be a chip-in. The games that would want to participate could chip in for the cost of the volunteers.
    Once a year event, and possibly something that could be months in the making.

    Also, bringing back a stable platform for posting guides and reviews. No more "migrations" please. I twitch everytime I hear that word now.

    Was it depicted in this link?
    http://stratics.com/featured/stratics-presents-historic-achievement-award-to-ultima-online-team/ ? :)

    What I has previously suggested is that Stratics is recognized and used for quotation by the producers of different games. This will also provide the portal with self-sustaining marketing.
    But this would indeed require an effort that we cannot sustain with the current volunteer team.
