    I don't visit NeoGAF, because I don't "get it". Sometimes I visit the Facepunch forums to see what these guys have to say.

    The quality varies, but Before I Play is quite handy for non-spoilerish hints about games. http://www.beforeiplay.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

    I'm really glad you guys posted that link to rockpapershotgun.com, it's just what I'm looking for in a games news website and I'd never heard of it before!

    http://savygamer.co.uk/ for deals.

    Beyond that it's a few youtube channels and sub reddits for particular games (which are a mixed bag but /r/boardgames is excellent most of the time).

    I really enjoy reading his work, especially his Sim-plicity series is quite excellent(about living a peacefull life as a gamer via simulator games).

    Here, Neogaf, Giantbomb, Eurogamer(occasionally), Polygon (which I'm liking more and more) and Tested..though more for tech than anything else.

    www.rockpapershotgun.com
    www.eurogamer.net
    www.vg247.com
    www.gamesindustry.biz (their regular round-up e-mail is very solid too)
    www.pocketgamer.co.uk (probably the best mobile site there is)
    www.savygamer.co.uk
    www.pcgamer.com
    www.theguardian.com/technology/games (some very solid journos write for them regularly)
    PCgamesn.com - actually a pretty darn good site, but lacking a community.

    I also check
    Neogaf and reddit.com/r/games - but I do that more to see 'what people are talking about' than for any particular love for the sites or their communities. Yesterday they were talking a lot about RPS.

    But mainly I click interesting things people link to on twitter. I won't ever check something like Polygon or Kotaku because they have a lot of crap on them, but when an article gets Rted broadly on twitter, it's usually worth a read.

    (the next two are cheating, because I contribute to them)

    beefjack.com

    I don't spend that much time reading about video games, but I do enjoy podcasts about them.

    I don't have many bookmarks. I just let firefox guess where I want to go when I put in the first letter.

    I use Gamasutra, RPS, Codex, rpg.net, mmorpg.com, citybuildergames.com, QT3, wargamer, bay12's other games section, civfan, and once a week I look at armchairgeneral. Oh, and I am a relatively active member of gamedev.net. Oh and the general gaming section of Stardock.

    Then I also check a bunch of forums for particular games and/or the other games sections on those forums. I used to spend a lot of time on Massively/Joystiq as well. I also read Raph Koster's blog sometimes.

    Outside of RPS, one private forum and lots of Reddit.

    http://www.reddit.com/r/truegaming/
    http://www.reddit.com/r/gamedev/
    http://www.reddit.com/r/ludology/
    http://www.reddit.com/r/gamedesign/
    http://www.reddit.com/r/truegamedev/

    /r/gaming stopped being a gaming reddit long ago.

    http://www.gamasutra.com is always excellent.

    Kotaku.com sometimes and any random blogs, articles or news I can find out there.

    http://www.wizards.com/magic/Magazin...rk%20Rosewater - D&D head designer is a great read. He makes very complicated design decision making processes sound easy and is a big fan of all kinds of design in general.

    Fascinating, in depth and a long read. The kind where you need to put your feet up on the desk and spend a few hours with.

    Forgot to mention Gameological Society before, it's rather excellent - happy enough being a niche site that it isn't arsed about 'reviews'. It reminds me a bit of pre-fame RPS - it's some talented writers, talking about games without any real constraints or interest in following the industry template.

    Here's a great overall news aggregator I use every day instead of visiting various news sites:

    http://thegamerspost.com

    You can set it up to collect from the game news sites you prefer, including RPS.
    GameDeed.com - Video games checklist, backlog and database
