Eurogamer is a United Kingdom based website focused on video games news, reviews and other features. It is operated by Eurogamer Network Ltd. with headquarters in Brighton, which was formed in 1999 by brothers Rupert and Nick Loman. Eurogamer has grown to become one of the most important European-based websites focused on video games. Eurogamer Network claims that the site has the largest readership of any independent videogames website in Europe (over 5.7 million unique users in November 2011), and was the first such site to subject its traffic to independent verification by the ABC Electronic system.
Most of the reviews (which are scored on a 10 point scale) are of European or PAL releases of the games, but given the time disparity between Japanese or North American/NTSC releases, some reviews are done using the latter. In February 2006, the company launched its video channel, Eurogamer TV, though this was ultimately absorbed into the main website.
Eurogamer's editor is Tom Bramwell, who took over the role from Kristan Reed in January 2008. Bramwell is the longest-serving member of the editorial staff, having worked on the publication since early 2000. Contributors have included past or present writers from PC Gamer, GamesTM, Edge, and Rock, Paper, Shotgun, such as Oliver Welsh, Kieron Gillen, Jim Rossignol, John Walker, Simon Parkin, Alec Meer, Richard Leadbetter, Dan Whitehead, and David McCarthy, as well as former GamesIndustry.biz editor Rob Fahey.
