Wikia Surpasses IGN As The Biggest Gaming Site On The Internet

Jimmy Wales’ for profit company Wikia is now more popular than both IGN and GameSpot, according to recently released Comscore data. There are now over 300,000 wikis generating around 50 million unique visitors a month. 600 new sites are created each day on Wikia. The site also managed to poach the heads of IGN’s gaming and movie sites, Hilary Goldstein and Eric Moro.

      1. Somebody’s an obvious Luigi fan…

        He’s okay, but Yoshi’s better.
        BUT Oshawott is the best out of all Nintendo characters.
        I think Oshawott should be his own playable character for the next Smash Bros.

        1. In order for Oshawott to be playable, the other two Unova starters have to be playable as well since a separate starter Pokemon can’t be playable alone, which is why Squrite, Ivysaur, and Charizard made it and why Blaziken didn’t make it in Brawl.

        2. @holonboy: Heracross is the greatest Pokemon of all time!!! He would destroy your Oshawott.

          Oshawott i pretty awesome, too. But I generally tend to chose the fire type starter pokemon.

              1. too bad heracross is also a fighting type AND slower than alakazam. Givin me the initiativa to blast you with psychic and mop the floor with your heracross before it can even move

                1. Do you think I don’t know my favourite Pokemon weaknesses? True, Heracross is part fighting type making him weak aginst psychics, but he is strong enough to take some damage. Your Alakazam on the other hand, when he gets hit with the strongest bug type move from the strongest bug type pokemon, he won’t survive the first round. Psychics, especially Alakazam and his family, have notoriously low physical and special defence stats.

                  1. WRONG AGAIN!!!!! It’s called a “focus Sash” and Alakazam has decent Sp. Def, not that it matters in this situation. With the focus Sash I can endure 1-hit KO and come back with a second pyschic blast if the first failed to finish you (which is unlikely considerin Alakazam is the stronget or second best non-legendary psychic type Sp. Att-wise). So you’d have a hard time handlin me, especially with Recover in my arsenal :p

    1. Me to!

      Say for example I want to know about Samus, and all of the background of her in the Metroid games.

      http://metroid.wikia.com/wiki/Samus

      Tells about everything… even from metroid comics which were often on K-2L (Samus’ homeworld) ^_^

      Or I want to know more about Soap Mactavish from the Modern Warfare series.

      http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/John_%22Soap%22_MacTavish

      Really Wiki’s are where I get to know more about the game in depth and also easter eggs which i never knew about!

      I visit Wikias way more then IGNorant.

    1. Wow!

      It’s a massive game detail… almost every game you can think off.

      It tells about easter eggs or game characters and lots of stuff. Heres what a Wikia is like; This one is Wikitroid and about Samus Aran, and details of her life and everything… even from the metroid comics which were set on K-2L (Samus’ homeworld) ^_^

      http://metroid.wikia.com/wiki/Samus_Aran

      You will love it when you get used to it! Theres a Wikia for Mario, Call of Duty Series, Starfox series, Minecraft… quite a lot of games if you want to know… Try out Wikitroid to see what Wikias are like.

  1. that’s because IGN sucks and doesn’t list everything you’re trying to do in game, on their wiki and faq sheets lately have not been that helpful and in most cases very vague.
    it only makes sense to look up a dedicated wiki to a specific game because it’ll usually have everything you need there.

  2. I use it if I’m at work when I want to look up something. Mainly because it’s not blocked at work like IGN is. :-)

  4. Wikias are always more informative than IGN. I rarely ever use ign, always use some form of wiki, especially the Nintendo wiki. Which is where I learned this:
