The niche research for video games is one I have been wanting to do for a while now. I see many people starting video game websites but not all think it through. Like all other broad niches one must break it down and find that unique sub niche and target audience. Just because you like to play video games doesn’t mean you can casually make an effective and profitable website.
I know this guy who used to manage one of the top Nintendo testing departments several years back. He told me once that if a testing job applicant put the answer “I like to play video games” high on a list of questions they had to answer, he wouldn’t hire the person. He said being specific is far more important and the same holds true for a video games niche website.
