July 24, 2012 (Newswire.com) - When MeltedJoystick.com was first conceived, it was with the sole intent to be a haven for console games - you know, the kind you need a TV and controller (maybe even a melted joystick) to play. But something wondrous has happened in just the past few years - it turns out PC gaming, once a haven for those who preferred the keyboard and mouse over a controller, has begun to resemble a console itself. Two arch enemies of gaming have suddenly began to look strangely similar and it's just as easy to plug in a controller to your PC as it is to stick to traditional controls, and thus, PC games have been added to the site.
It should also be known that a small, but very vocal user base also demanded PC games be added. The tide turned not only through users speaking up, but also the increasing popularity of digital distribution, led by Valve Corporation's Steam network (which shares a similar model to the Playstation Network and Xbox Live). Taking everything into account, it seemed like a natural step to introduce PC games into the mix. Adding the new category gives users even more opportunity to share their gaming experiences. Those experiences can encompass everything from classic point-and-click adventure to the latest massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
What keeps MeltedJoystick.com growing is not just being able to connect with fellow gamers, but the ability to create an unlimited amount of custom game lists. This goes well beyond merely creating a top game list. It goes even deeper than creating top lists by genre or system: users can literally make any list they want. Maybe you want the world to know just how much you enjoy games featuring zombies or perhaps you want to rip into games that featuring the worst RPG stereotypes. This is the chance to get outrageous, to vent your frustration or just get really specific. Users will find these lists can really define their personality more than just listing all the games they own.
The addition of over 2000 PC games bumps the total amount of games on the site to over 22,300. If you count the latest hand-held gaming systems, the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita, plus the upcoming release of the WiiU, that number will only continue to grow. You even have the next generation of Xbox and Playstation consoles on the horizon. New games are added to the database as soon as they are announced and, since no site is perfect, users also have the ability to request any game just in case something gets lost in the crowd.
With the continued rise in popularity of gaming, it's necessary to stand out from the pack. MeltedJoystick.com has distinguished itself as not just a place to catch the latest game releases or watch game trailers, but provides an opportunity to create unique, unparalleled lists and truly define your personality. For those looking beyond just gamerscore, trophies and rating & reviewing their favorite games, MeltedJoystick.com is the place you want to be.
