It has been a rough year for gaming enthusiasts, and it’s only March.

While great games continue to drop, news and coverage about the industry have taken a hit. Mid-January was brutal for games journalism. Gaming websites GameSpot, Fandom and Giant Bomb all suffered staff cuts. The Washington Post cut almost its entire gaming staff, shuttered their Launcher site and moved their one remaining games writer to their Lifestyles section. Lee Enterprise cut ties with their newly crowned Games Editor and data journalist as a cost-cutting measure.

For those unaware, that last one was me.

The irony is gaming continues to grow within the United States. In 2021, Variety reported that 227 million Americans played video games during the pandemic. That is nearly 70 percent of Americans. Yet very few media publications devote any assets to the topic.

The Games Letter was started to fill the void of dwindling resources for casual and experienced gamers alike. The newsletter is a weekly publication that breaks down the latest news, releases and other useful information on gaming. Always 100 percent free, the newsletter focuses on both video and board game news and events of the week. Topics are broken down into easily digestible segments to keep you informed. The newsletter is delivered to your inbox every Monday morning.

For those who want more in-depth coverage of games including reviews, analysis and original reporting, or just to help support the site, you can become a TGL Supporter. Supporters help pay the bills, receive the weekly newsletter plus gain full access to all content on TheGamesLetter.com. You can expect fresh content weekly.

So if you like games, we hope you will sign up for our newsletter. We look forward to seeing you every Monday morning.
