14 game culture sites you have to visit

We like the internet. In fact, we don’t think we could live without it - and we know we’re not the only ones. A recent report published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation found that the majority of Britons believe that internet access at home is a necessary part of a “socially acceptable standard of living.” Fridge-freezers, DVD players and mobile phones also made the list.

That’s why we thought it’d be fun to share some of our editorial team’s favorite websites to visit. These sites all sit off the beaten path and great places to visit for a quick dose of fun. You’ll also notice that these sites are all made possible by incredibly dedicated and talented individuals and communities. So check them out and share your favorite destinations with us, too!


OverClocked ReMix

Click here to internet

If you love videogame music or GamesRadar’s Game Music of the Day posts, you should definitely check out Overclocked Remix. You’ll find tons of excellent fan-made arrangements and a community that’s full of friendly and passionate videogame music connoisseurs. On top of all the great free music, you’ll also find great features. OC ReMix recently posted an interview with the lead composer for Mass Effect 2, and it’s an excellent read. Head over there and have yourself a listen.


Accidental Video Game Porn Archive

Click here to internet

Make Pron Not War. That’s the motto for the Accidental Video Game Porn Archive, which hosts a collection of authentic screenshots that show game characters captured in unintentionally sexual situations.

You won’t find any images from actual adult games or shots from creepy mods. After all, that would defeat the purpose of this collection of accidental porn. It’s pretty low brow, so if seeing an Alien giving a Predator a BJ doesn’t make you chuckle, you might want to pass.

AnnaTheRed’s Bento Factory

Click here to internet

When it comes to edible boxed lunches, Anna the Red is queen. The bento artist extraordinaire continues to impress with her detailed homemade lunches inspired by popular comics, movies, anime, and of course, video games. You can visit her blog [http://annathered.wordpress.com/] for tons of pictures of her delicious creations accompanied by detailed explanations of her process for creating the complex designs featured in her geek-friendly cuisine.

SCA Starcraft Arena

Click here to internet

We love playing StarCraft II, but HDstarcraft and Mike “Husky” Lamond make watching pro-level matches just as fun. The two began posting matches with commentary during the game’s beta stage. Since then, they’ve continued to post some of the most exciting and surprising matches from the world’s best players – and they keep getting better.

These guys “get it” and with support from their followers and a few sponsors, they are leading the way for the future of e-sports broadcasting in the west.


Above: You don’t need to be fluent in Korean to see professional commentary for world class StarCraft matches. HDstarcraft and ‘H-to-the-usky-Husky’ are doing it on a daily basis


The Spriters Resource

Click here to internet

We like game sprites. They’re great for animated gifs and avatars. But really, they’re also just fun to look at. The Spriters Resource hosts an excellent collection of game sprites from just about every classic system. This is thanks, in no small part, to The Spriters Resource’s community, who help keep the site updated with lots of new stuff. They’ve recently updated their forums, so why not drop by and check it out?


Above: Nobody really needs all the sprites of Thrilla Gorilla surfing from T&C Surf Designs. At least, that’s what we thought until we started checking out The Spriters Resource

    The accidental porn site was unsurprisingly very funny. And that Nintendo site is hardcore- pointing out things like the differences between the backgrounds of SMB 2 on NES and SNES. It's nice to know there are people who are that dedicated out there.
