GameFAQs is a website that hosts FAQs and walkthroughs for video games. It was created in November 1995 by Jeff "CJayC" Veasey and has been owned by CNET Networks since May 2003. The site has a database of video game information, cheat codes, reviews, game saves, and screenshots, much of which is submitted by volunteer contributors. The systems covered include the 8-bit Atari platform through modern consoles, as well as computer games. Submissions made to the site are reviewed by the site's current editor, Allen "SBAllen" Tyner.

GameFAQs hosts an active message board community, which has a separate discussion board for each game in the site's database, along with a variety of other boards. Since 2003, most of the game-specific boards have been shared between GameFAQs and GameSpot, another CNET website. The site also runs a daily opinion poll and tournament contests.

History

GameFAQs was started as the Video Game FAQ Archive on November 5, 1995.[6] Hosted on America Online, it originally served as a mirror of Andy Eddy's FTP FAQ archive.[7][8] The initial version of the site had approximately 10 pages and 100 FAQs.[9] In 1996, the site moved to its current domain at gamefaqs.com and changed its name to GameFAQs.[10][6] At this time, GameFAQs listed less than 1000 FAQs and guides and was updated on an irregular basis.[11] is the 309th day of the year (310th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

During the following months, the site grew in content and in design; two different styles were introduced in early 1997 to accommodate the support of tables in web browsers (or the lack thereof).[12][13] Two key features of the site—the game search engine and the contributor recognition pages—were planned at this time. In computing, an HTML element indicates structure in an HTML document and a way of hierarchically arranging content. ...

IGN affiliation

In 1997, GameFAQs became an independent affiliate of the Imagine Games Network (IGN), leading to the placement of affiliate links on the home page.[14] User contests were introduced during this period; the first monthly contest, which was held in 1998, received 253 entries.[15] GameFAQs went through several design changes, including a pink color scheme,[14] before arriving at the blue-colored layout that was used until 2004. IGN - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia /**/ @import /skins-1. ... Homepage, Home page or Home may refer to: The URL or local file that is automatically loaded when a web browser starts is called homepage or startpage. ...


In November 1999, several changes occurred in rapid succession.[16] On November 5, a search box was added to every page, at which time the site was celebrating its fourth anniversary. On November 7, the message boards opened in a beta testing mode.[17] The "Poll of the Day" was introduced at the end of the month.[18] These changes marked Veasey's increased concentration on the site, and it was around this time that GameFAQs became his full-time job.[19][20][21] Until this time, he had been working as a programmer.[20] On August 9, 2000, the site received one million hits in a single day for the first time.[22] By 2001, the "GameFAQs Chat" (an IRC chat server) had been launched;[23] however, it was removed in May 2001 due to administrative issues.[24][9] An anniversary (from the Latin anniversarius, from the words for year and to turn, meaning (re)turning yearly; known in English since c. ...

2001–2003

On January 9, 2001, GameFAQs ended its association with IGN.[25] To continue generating revenue, an advertising banner sold to non-profit organizations was placed on the top of each page. This lasted until CNET Networks became an official affiliate of GameFAQs; CNET ads ran on the top of the page and links to news articles from GameSpot were shown on the home page.[26] In September 2002, the ad was moved from the horizontal header to the vertical sidebar. This led to changes to the links on the side, as well as the creation of navigational links at the top of the screen.[27] Contributions to GameFAQs continued to increase, and Veasey, as sole operator and administrator of the site, dedicated significant portions of his time to ensure that GameFAQs remained updated and successful. is the 9th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On April 1, 2002, Veasey changed GameFAQs to "GameFAX" as an April Fools' joke.[28] The site's colors were changed to green and black to imitate those of the Xbox, with the intention of making users believe that GameFAQs was now dedicated solely to the Xbox, "the only system that matters." After clicking on any link on the main page, users were directed to the real GameFAQs home page. Nevertheless, Veasey reported receiving hate mail from users.[29] is the 91st day of the year (92nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Also see: 2002 (number). ...

CNET acquisition

On May 6, 2003, CNET Networks (the site's long-standing affiliate and sponsor) acquired GameFAQs. The amount paid for GameFAQs and two other unrelated websites was US$2.2 million.[30] On June 3, 2003, Veasey announced the merger to the users of the site.[21] He clarified that the user-submitted content (i.e. FAQs, reviews) remained under the ownership of the authors and was not (nor could be) sold to CNET; however, CNET acquired GameFAQs' rights to host them on the site. He assured users that GameFAQs would undergo no major administrative change and said, "The GameFAQs you see today is the one you'll see tomorrow."[21] This was true to a certain extent, as the only visible change over the next few months was the addition of a CNET footer to the bottom of every page. Additional changes included moving the site to new servers in California.

From 2004 to 2006, GameFAQs witnessed further changes. In April and May 2004, GameFAQs implemented a large visual redesign,[31] and the boards merged with the GameSpot boards to allow both communities to share the same game-specific boards (to the dismay of many GameFAQs users). To facilitate this, GameFAQs converted its board code from ASP to PHP, and GameSpot dropped its Lithium code. On April 11, 2006, a new design was implemented and the GameSpot logo was added to the GameFAQs logo on the header of every page. This change was initially greeted with general disapproval by users on the message boards.[32] To satisfy those who prefer the earlier layout, the old board pages have been preserved for certain users.[33] Shortly after the redesign, Veasey began using the Smarty template engine to generate many of the site's pages.[34] Active Server Pages (ASP) is Microsofts first server-side script engine for dynamically-generated web pages. ...

Veasey's departure

On July 19, 2007, Veasey announced that he would eventually be leaving the site. According to his announcement, Allen Tyner, who has been employed with the site since 2004, would take over as editor of GameFAQs.[35] is the 200th day of the year (201st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...


Message boards

The custom-made GameFAQs Message Boards, coded by Veasey, began operation on November 7, 1999.[36] Although the original purpose of the board system was to facilitate game discussion, other board categories have been added since the boards opened. Every day, approximately 20,000 topics and 200,000 messages are posted on GameFAQs' 50,000+ individual boards,[37] and as of November 7, 2006, there were more than 100,000 accounts actively in use.[38] is the 311th day of the year (312th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Every game listed on GameFAQs has its own message board where both novice and experienced gamers can discuss game strategies and other game-related topics.[39][40] Since the redesign of May 2004, the game boards with enforced topicality have been shared with the GameSpot community. Certain popular games may have additional boards for social discussion. Game-specific boards for certain older consoles do not have topicality rules and are often claimed for social discussion—these are referred to as "secret" or "dead" boards. Every system also has a general board for discussing hardware and upcoming games.[41] A contribution is on-topic if it is within the bounds of the current discussion, article, etc. ... For other uses, see Hardware (disambiguation). ...


GameFAQs has boards made purely for the purpose of socializing ("Current Events", "Random Insanity", Gamefaqs Contests(Board 8)" and "Poll of the Day" being the largest),[42] some that cater to special interests (such as The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or pro wrestling),[43] and some purely for users from a particular region (e.g. United Kingdom, Australia/New Zealand).[44] GameFAQs also has boards for official announcements, contributor discussion, contest discussion, suggestions, and site help.[45] This article is about the novel. ... This article is about the Harry Potter series of novels. ... For the NES video game, see Pro Wrestling (video game). ...


Features

Posts made on the message boards are mostly plain text. Some HTML markup is used on the boards, including bold and italics tags.[46] Unlike many message boards, GameFAQs does not allow tags for images, hyperlinks, or underlining. Avatars are not used, signatures are limited to two lines of text (160 characters total), and posts cannot be edited. Additionally, the forums use a wordfilter to prevent the use of certain vulgar words.[47] On some boards, topics are removed permanently after a having no new posts for a period of time. On other boards, they are locked and archived (a feature which was added in 2008). The length of time that a topic can remain inactive without being removed or archived depends on the number of posts on its board.[48][49] Computer files can be divided into two broad categories: binary and text. ... In computing, an HTML element indicates structure in an HTML document and a way of hierarchically arranging content. ... // A hyperlink, is a reference or navigation element in a document to another section of the same document or to another document that may be on a (different) website. ... A signature block (often abbreviated as signature, sig block, sig file, or just sig) is a block of text automatically appended at the bottom of an e-mail message, Usenet article, or forum post. ... Wordfilters are scripts that change one word or phrase into another. ...


GameFAQs users gain one "karma" for every day they visit the boards while logged in. As karma increases, new features become available, such as the ability to post more messages per day, visit high-level social boards, and view a post history page.[46] Registered users can choose between various stylesheets, search topics, and message display options.[50] Users can add favorite boards to a personalized list on the main boards page and can track specific topics (a feature added in 2006).[51][52]


On June 20, 2007, advertisements on message list pages were moved from the top of the page to the middle of the message lists.[53] Shortly thereafter, the ads were moved to the bottom of the message lists.[53] On October 8, 2007, an "ignore user" system was launched for users above a certain level.[54] is the 171st day of the year (172nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...


Moderators

The message boards are managed by the site's administrators and moderators. Initially, Veasey was the only administrator and therefore had full control over the boards; however, more administrators have since been appointed. Two of the administrators are Veasey and Tyner, who use the accounts "CJayC" and "SBAllen" (formerly "Sailor Bacon"), respectively.[6] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


GameFAQs' moderators are volunteer users selected by the administrator and are responsible for keeping order within the message board community. Because of the size of the boards, the moderators do not patrol every board and topic. Instead, messages that break the site's Terms of Service can be "marked" by regular users, which brings the message to the attention of the moderators.[55] Terms of Service (often abbreviated as ToS) are rules by which one must agree to abide by in order to use a service. ... On Internet websites which invite users to post comments, a moderation system is the method the webmaster chooses to sort contributions which are irrelevant, obscene, illegal or insulting from contributions which are useful or informative. ...


Life, the Universe, and Everything

"Life, the Universe, and Everything" (often shortened to "LUE") is a board on GameFAQs. Its name is a reference to Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, and one of its earlier board numbers (42) continued the reference. Users on LUE refer to themselves as "LUEsers" and sometimes attach "LUE" to popular fads and events on the board, such as "LUEshi,"[56][57] an ASCII artwork which depicts Mario riding Yoshi (derived from the cover of Super Mario World). LUE is currently a private board. On many occasions, Veasey said he would never allow new users into LUE.[8] As of June 12, 2008, there are 15,003 accounts that can access LUE.[58] Douglas Noël Adams (11 March 1952 – 11 May 2001) was an English author, comic radio dramatist, and musician. ...

Spinoff websites

Due to the high popularity of the GameFAQs boards, many users have created spinoff forums based on the layout and general functionality of the GameFAQs boards. The first spinoff forum was the open source "GameFAQs Hell".[9] Another spinoff is "LUElinks", a site originally created for members of LUE.[59] It claims to have over 11,000 registered users and 30,000,000 posts.[60] Unlike GameFAQs, it is not open to the public. A spin-off (or spinoff) is a new organization or entity formed by a split from a larger one such as a new company formed from a university research group. ... Open source refers to projects that are open to the public and which draw on other projects that are freely available to the general public. ...


FAQs

All of the guides and walkthroughs on GameFAQs are contributed by volunteers.[61] Most of the FAQs are not actually lists of frequently asked questions; instead, they cover aspects of gameplay in the same way as strategy guides, with walkthroughs, item lists, maps, and puzzle solutions. Nearly all of the FAQs hosted on the site are in plain text,[62] though GameFAQs does also accept stand-alone images, such as maps, diagrams and puzzle solutions.[63] In addition to FAQs, contributors can also submit reader reviews, cheat codes, developer credits, game release data, game saves, screenshots, and images of game boxes.

When an author submits something to GameFAQs, it is screened by an administrator before being posted on the site.[64] The author retains the copyright on the submitted material,[65] and his name is added to the site's "Contributor Recognition" section. GameFAQs agrees to host the guide only on their servers but does allow other affiliates to link directly to the guides (including GameSpot, Yahoo! Games, AOL, and GameFly).[64] Not to be confused with copywriting. ... GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information. ... Yahoo!

GameFAQs features several ongoing contributor contests, including FAQ of the Month, Review of the Month, and numerous "FAQ Bounties", which reward contributors who submit FAQs for uncovered, high-demand games.[66] The FOTM and ROTM contests are generally picked from comprehensive, complete guides or reviews for new games. Winners are sent a gift certificate for an online retailer, or can opt for a mailed gift card upon contest entry.[67][68] A bounty is often offered by a group as an incentive for the accomplishment of a task by someone usually not associated with the group. ...

Registered users can submit prediction brackets, and prizes are awarded to those who score the highest. The contest polls are shown in place of or in addition to the regular Poll of the Day and have always been accompanied by an image depicting the entrants in the match. The entrants of the Character Battles change from year to year, with some characters being added and some being removed.

During the 10-Year Anniversary Contest in 2005, GameFAQs users voted on the 10 best games of all time (and tried to predict what the top 10 would be). Final Fantasy VII was selected as the best game ever, followed by The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Smash Bros.
