Welcome to Video Game Geek!
Who Are We?
Video Game Geek (founded in 2010) is the youngest sub-domain of the pioneering BoardGameGeek (founded in 2000), and RPGGeek (added in 2009). If you already have an account at BGG or RPGG, you don't need to sign up for VGG - your existing account allows you full access to all three domains. If you don't already have an account, you can sign up for one by Registering now.
We hope that you find Video Game Geek to be a welcome place to discuss the amazing world of Video Games.
What is VGG?
Video Game Geek (abbreviated VGG) is a video game database - a collection or catalog of information on everything video game related. The information contained within our database was meticulously and voluntarily entered on a game-by-game basis by our user base - you. The game information entered on VGG is intended for posterity, historical research, and user-contributed ratings. We try not to take shortcuts and have worked hard to produce a model that works and rewards useful content. This also means that people entering data, and the moderators, must understand the Guide to Data Entry and be diligent about the rules to ensure the data is both accurate and consistent.
We also try to do right by those who hold the copyright on their products. Strict rules on what we allow in terms of images are designed to protect the intellectual property of the creators and publishers who have worked hard to bring us these great products.
OUR MOTTO: VGG is Nice!
What Are VGG's Design Goals?
As a database we want to catalogue as many video games and related content as possible. This means we try to stay open minded about what is and isn't a video game and interpret the term in the broadest sense possible. Games intended for all ages and in any stage of development is accepted.

The VGG Community
Video Game Geek's slogan has always been "VGG is Nice". Our goal is to foster and maintain a friendly, helpful community of both the casual and hardcore video gaming hobbyists. We have had resounding success. While we may not be the largest gaming site, we can say confidently that we are the most hospitable!
If this is your first time here, you should know that we have a number of helpful pages to make this experience smoother for you. If you're a long-time veteran of either BGG or RPGG, you should be aware that while most of the activity over there occurs within the forums, on VGG you will find it in GeekLists. GeekLists have a format that is more ideal for the discussion of video games than the forums.
