Sac City Gamer
– We both love games. I like to write. You like to read. Stay a while. –
Sac City Gamer is owned and operated by Daniel Wilson, a gamer and journalist from the Sacramento region, and focuses on the biggest gaming news across all major platforms.
We also occasionally delve into board games, card games, streaming TV services, tech gadgets and entertainment news.
In addition to news, we feature opinions and hot takes, in-depth features and reviews and quick reviews, lists and more. Plus, we provide gaming resources like the latest PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold titles.
Lastly, we aim to cover standout members of the local gaming community in the Sacramento area, so if that sounds like you, give us a holler and SCG will be in touch! We’d love to feature your gaming adventures!
Sac City Gamer adheres to journalistic standards, including Associated Press style and the SPJ code of journalistic ethics, but we also have some style guidelines unique to SCG.
Sac City Gamer follows a strictly-unbiased approach to news coverage. The opinion articles, reviews and lists represent one opinion and aren’t meant to be the opinion of the site as a whole. Feature articles tend to have a mix of facts and opinion and we’re as transparent as possible when personal views are introduced.
Most of the stories on this site are aggregated, but we always try to go to the original source, such as a press release or official website, before attributing reporting from other sites. However, when we do use second-hand reporting, we verify facts against multiple sources and make sure we use the most well-trusted source we can find. And we try to create original content and reporting whenever possible.
We encourage you, the reader, to share your opinion as well via the comments section, our Facebook page and on Twitter, Twitch, YouTube, Instagram and elsewhere. Just, please, be respectful of others as we have a zero tolerance policy against hate, harassment and all those other negative things that are far too common online.
What’s Covered and Not Covered
Sac City Gamer is run and produced by one person. Obviously, SCG doesn’t have the resources to cover everything. SCG covers big news (e.g. new game announcements, gaming conferences, game cancellations, new console information and more). We also write game reviews (though not as often as we’d like), opinion articles and lists, update our readers on subscription services and other services and we try to keep up with new developments on stories we’ve covered in the past.
We don’t usually cover game updates for already-released games (DLC, patches, etc. because if you play these games, you know about the updates or where to find that information), rumors or leaks, gossip or non-major game industry drama. Lastly, the focus is on the big stuff, so we don’t always cover stuff like a game’s release date getting pushed back or a new character coming to your favorite fighting game.
History & Mission Statement
Mission: Sac City Gamer aims to represent the Sacramento region and create a space for all gamers to learn about the biggest and latest gaming updates, provide unbiased news and honest reviews and produce fun and exciting lists and other stories to entertain our audience and help video game enthusiasts stay informed.
Though we can’t cover everything, SCG truly cares about bringing gamers the most up-to-date and accurate information possible. Plus, you’ll get the big stuff from us without all the noise.
History: Sac City Gamer launched on Oct. 11, 2012 as a personal blog. After several years as a blog and news site, which included contributions by several other writers, the site returned to somewhat of its original form, presenting the writing and opinions of its sole contributor: Daniel Wilson.
