What is the history and popularity of the app?

PopuGamer was founded in April of 2010 by Patrick Chen and Vince Wu. Based in New York City, New York, the website was intended to provide a source for video game reviews that came purely from users. The concept would allow PopuGamer to share popular opinion without any industry spin added. Many gamers visit PopuGamer to submit reviews and learn about newly released video games.

What are the differences to other apps?

Reviews on the web are not a new concept. There are many websites and online retailers that give users a place to share their opinions about video games. What really makes PopuGamer unique is the focus on user created reviews. The site does not feature any professional reviews or editorial reviews. All the review content comes straight from the real users who play the games.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The PopuGamer website welcomes users with a simple yet effective design. The red and black color scheme is contrasted by a white background which helps keep the focus on the content. The design is very clean with no clutter, which is definitely a plus compared to other similar websites. The site presents lists with the game title, voting stats, like and dislike buttons, genre, platforms, date released and tags.

How does the registration process work?

New visitors are not required to register to explore PopuGamer and read reviews. However an account is required to use the forum or submit reviews and perform other community tasks. Users can click the blue and white “Login with Facebook” button to link their Facebook profile. Users who prefer the traditional route can click the red “Join” button just to the right of it. The registration form appears along the right hand side and asks the user for a username, email address, first and last name, password and terms of use agreement.

What does it cost to use the application?

PopuGamer is a site that thrives off of its community. Charging a fee would most likely discourage some gamers from joining. PopuGamer offers membership to all visitors for free, which is definitely a good thing. Users can log in to their accounts as often as they like. No paid premium membership is currently available. The free access is also a great way to encourage PopuGamer members to utilize the invite a friend feature and entice more gamers to visit the site.
