They look amazing, and feature some state of the art technology, but why do these game publishing websites have to be so awkward and fiddly!
At Phonica, we visit a lot of game websites, mainly scourging for news or updates, and sourcing new photos for the magazine. So when we’re in a hurry and pushing the limits of our deadlines, all we want is a nicely organized website that gives us what we want at the click of a mouse, without any hassle or faffing. But frustratingly, these easy-to-use sites are few and far between, as nearly every site we visit is a muddle of Flash graphics and overworked design. But are these sites, in general, a good thing and should we be encouraging new web design concepts rather than criticizing them?
