The 5 Top Gaming Communities to Join in 2023


A gaming community can allow gamers to connect with each other and talk about the things they enjoy most. Being part of a community allows us to embrace difference and inclusivity as well as giving us a sense of wellbeing.

All gaming communities offer something different, some focus on reviews on games, news or guides, while others offer discussion threads for every gaming topic you could want. They're also packed with other gamers looking to connect and participate while playing at home.

Participating in gaming communities is a wonderful way to expand your network and gain a better understanding of the industry as a whole as well as specific niches within it. Learning from other players, picking up tips and guides through discussion threads, or simply increasing your excitement and sense of connection can all help you enhance your game. Furthermore, it might assist in the growth and establishment of your audience.

We have dedicated this blog to the incredible gaming community platforms for you to join in 2021.


The IGN website and community is a leading source for video game news, reviews, and walkthroughs. The site's usability and design are flawless, with a simple, clean, and intuitive to explore, offering forums and wikis. The community forum also includes a range of topics for you to read about and contribute to, and the community is really welcoming. It's a win-win situation all around.


The Steam Community is a video game digital distribution service owned by Valve. It's described as "the ultimate destination for playing, discussion and creating games."

The subreddit r/gaming has over 30 million users and is "for (almost) anything related to games - video games, board games, card games, etc. (but not sports)," according to the site. This subreddit has a lot of discussion topics for everything video games, and offers tonnes of memes and weekly threads. Gamers rush to the subreddit around the release of new games or major industry events to tell stories and share jokes about their first endeavours into a new game, a hilarious experience, or anything else that another gamer would enjoy.


Discord is a free voice and text messaging platform geared at gaming communities. It runs on a variety of platforms, including Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux, and web browsers.

It makes gaming easy with friends from other cities, states, and time zones and can feel like you're in the same area because of the social benefit.


Last but not least, is our very own gaming community. We believe it is important that all of our members have a space where they can learn from and share with one another and with us. We want to know what you're looking for, what you're working on, what you're having trouble with, what move or game you just nailed, what will make you feel better while gaming, and so on. We use our community to share gaming-related updates and news. We also want you to be able to connect with other gamers who share your values and to continue to establish a community of gamers with whom you can grow with. We offer one of the best gaming communities a gamer can be a part of, from keeping up with gaming news to participating in our gaming discussions.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.

    My sister's partner's son is obsessed with the movies and the shows, he's seen absolutely everything and raves about them. Showed me a couple of the movies, and they're definitely decent, but it feels like you're out of the loop if you haven't seen them and try to watch one at random. So need to sort of figure out an order and go with it at some point

    This may offer some insight.

    :) Glad I could help!
  • BigPete7978 @ BigPete7978:
    If you do end up checking any out I would love to hear what you think of some
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Most definitely, much appreciated :)
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Yep, will do!
  • BigPete7978 @ BigPete7978:
    Oh I just figured out you can have the chat in a separate pop up! Amazing!
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Yep, pop-up mode :)
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Very handy when you're browsing through multiple tabs :)
  • S @ Sangay23:
    hello i am Sangay23
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    Hi @Sangay23 it's good to meet you :)

    hi all
  • A @ Augment:
    Test to see if I can send a link in chat. Imgur: The magic of the Internet
  • A @ Augment:
    Oh hey it worked! This is my db schema so far
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    That's a good start!
  • A @ Augment:
    I'm a bit confused what I should do for user/vote relationship. Should it be a one to many from user or a one to one?
  • A @ Augment:
    So that a user can only vote once per thread
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    I want to say it's one to one, but in all honesty I'm a bit fuzzy there. I can recommend JoyFreak's sister site AdminIntel - Admin & Webmaster Resource where there are lots for people of varying degrees of expertise with development, you likely can get a far more precise answer there!
  • A @ Augment:
    Wow what a fantastic resource. Thank you very much for the help
