"You are in a room. There are doorways in each of the cardinal directions. Strange noises and smells emanate from beyond each door. Suddenly the lights go out. In the darkness, you hear breathing. You are not alone..."

Welcome to VideoGameGeek!

At first, it may seem like a daunting place, full of mazes, levels of increasing complexity, and fire breathing fan boys. Fear not! Your friendly admins and other VGG users are here to help, and soon you too shall find the wealth of treasure and experience contained within. We know that the front page looks a bit like the cockpit of an F-16 Fighter Jet, but just think of the power under the hood!

This guide is intended to serve as a starting point - a walkthrough to navigating the geek. Once you get familiar with our data-centric model you should have no problem navigating the site and getting the maximum out of the community. We hope that VGG will be a fantastic gathering place for the active video gaming community. We welcome collectors, players, publishers, and anyone interested in the hobby of video games at any level!
