VSG was built to help you find your next favorite game
Stop being aggravated over what to play next. Distilling reviews from hundreds of professional critics, VSG tells you whether to Play It or Skip It, giving you the tools to spend less time searching, and more time playing.
VSG was started to solve a big problem: figuring out what to play next. Founder Josh Lurie developed a love of video games at a young age, cherishing the memories and relationships that formed while playing them. At the time, the internet was still in its infancy, and finding clear, unbiased information about new and upcoming games was needlessly difficult. Josh knew he could make a better service. One that was completely independent of corporate interests, uncompromising in its coverage, and actually useful to consumers. One built by a gamer, for gamers.
At the end of 2019, the original framework upon which VSG was built became unmanageable. So the website, as well as our underlying databases, were torn down and rebuilt from scratch. While the website was rebuilt, a renewed focus on social media emerged. The site re-launched in the fall of 2020, but what you see now is more than just a redesign. We’ve used this transitional period to make structural changes to how VSG operates, and set it on a path to grow for many years to come.
Welcome to the new face of VSG. Thanks for being along for the ride.
VSG will release our first Substack newsletter, Early Access, at the beginning of August 2022. Now . . . bring me that horizon.
