What is TechRaptor
TechRaptor is committed to helping people get the most out of their games, both physical and digital. As your source for quality news, reviews, and articles in Gaming and Tabletop, we're here to both help keep you both up to date and informed, while satisfying your ravenous appetite for gaming.
Why should you read TechRaptor?
You won’t find any agendas in our content. We aim to minimize bias and be as objective as humanly possible in our news, while we aim to help provide information you need to reach a decision while providing the writers opinion in our editorials and reviews. We also want to show off the best products for our readers, and maybe show off a few things people haven’t even heard of!
What does TechRaptor offer readers that most other sites don't?
When it comes to news – you’re going to see passion in what our staff writes about in every post, because we’re gamers and techies too, which means that we truly care about what we’re putting up on the site. From new game releases to industry news about censorship or issues, you can guarantee that you’ll get a well informed article from a writer who cares about the issue.
Value Added News is our guide - we want to add value to each and every post whether in providing further information about the topic, context of it, or the writers clearly separated quick take on the story.
When it comes to reviews and editorials – you can guarantee that we’ve taken the time to play the game and research the topic, meaning that you’re going to get well-informed articles and reviews site-wide. We don’t believe in sensationalizing topics or reviews which is why you won’t see clickbait-driven headlines or articles – we want to bring you quality content that you will enjoy reading every time. How we handle reviews can be seen in both our Review Score Policy and Ethics Policy, which run down our approach to reviews - including items like finishing the game before reviewing, embargoes, and how we score reviews.
We want TechRaptor to offer a community that is inviting and welcoming to both new and old readers, fostering open discussion and discourse. To do that, you have to start with quality content, quality staff, and readers who are as passionate about the content as you are. As our Founder said in an interview, "If we share what we're passionate about with the world, people are going to come and join us."
Why does TechRaptor care about ethics?
We've definitely had our stumbles and falls with mistakes, but we've allowed those mistakes to help us hone our craft, and put processes in place to create policies, standards, and procedures that we use to ensure we make the right decisions. For the full rundown of what guides us, check out our extensive Ethics and Standards Policy!
How did TechRaptor get started?
In March of 2013, our Founder Rutledge Daugette bought some shared hosting and a domain name in the hopes of creating a new site that would stand out from the rest, wanting to build TechRaptor into a site that would stand for ethical gaming journalism. In 2014, we've had over 15 Million Pageviews and have a staff of around 50 contributors and Senior Writers that share content daily with our readers.
We're here because of our readers, and we keep doing what we do because of them. With that said, we always encourage you to comment on our posts, or contact us if there's something you'd like to see.
