Greetings gaming world! We here at GameTyrant are looking to grow. If you think you have the chops to come hang with us, you should apply to be part of the team.
As most of you already know, GameTyrant.co is and up and coming gaming culture website that is a “sister site” of GeekTyrant.com. The GeekTyrant.com website has been around for over 4 years now and has become a staple in the entertainment reporting world. Many of our readers would love the gaming content that was placed on the site, therefore GameTyrant was born to focus more in this field.
Launching in 2011, GameTyant has quickly been working on becoming a high quality source for the entire game community. As you might have noticed from view the posts on this site, we are not just another game site that is posting news or reviews. You can get that from the heavy hitters like IGN, Gamespot, or Kotaku. We are focused on everything outside of that, from video game clothing, hilarious videos, exclusive art, reviews and more. Does this mean we never post breaking news, the latest trailers, or rumors? No. We still do that from time to time, but it’s not the focus of the site.
