What is GM Games – General Manager Games?
Since 2011, GM Games is a media organization focused on sports management games. Our members are a community that perform the role of a ‘Sports General Manager’ aka GM. We cover video games for team sports that require a successful GM to shape the direction towards a championship franchise. GM video games are available and evolving on multiple operating systems and devices. We are inclusive of all developments and companies designing games that best simulate this reality experience through technology solutions. GM Games is your source for sports simulation games.
Why was GM Games created?
For many years now – there have been talented developers putting in hard work on algorithms and settings that best simulate being a Sports General Manager. Almost every sport has had someone with the desire and vision to put a great sports IQ game on the map, but now with the popularity of tablet and handheld devices, the technology formats are making it easier to play.
Even though there has always been a loyal community of sim sports fans, it often took a lot of work or word of mouth to find out about a great new GM simulation game. Pockets of users would end up on the game sites of the creators, or would find a review on Operation Sports or IGN. Unfortunately Operation Sports and IGN are console centric and the simulation game news was buried, not up to date or and almost impossible to find.
What was lacking has been an inventory for the cutting edge GM Games, available in an easy one-stop location to get the information desired. GM Games is now here to fill the need.
Why is GMgames.org unique compared than the other simulation websites?
GM Games has a target audience of both the developers and the end-user. We provide developers the ability to interact with a loyal and knowledgeable sports sim fan base. They can share their game information and learn about the desires of their end-user community. They can also review innovative ideas from other sports and games that may be applicable to their own games.
For developers, GM Games is not focused on one sport in particular. In fact, most members are Sports fans in general. Many users cross-pollinate to play other simulation games and the best games seem to stick around on someone’s computer, with multiple hours of usage.
For users of GMgames.org, we provide a community to join leagues, discuss with other GM’s who have the same interest in the games you do.
We also have some of the most knowledgeable simulation users. Questions that a developer could ask themselves – is offline installation the way to go or is building a cloud configuration the future? Is there a market for handheld GM Games?
If you want to know about what is happening next in different sports for many simulation games, We are the source for that information.
