Since joining YouTube in September 2011, Di Franco Gaming has gone through several major shifts in content, design and overall focus. My original idea was to simply record gameplay videos and share my opinions in the form of commentary, all while creating a community of like-minded gamers. Eventually I came to the realization that running a gaming-focused YouTube channel wasn’t something I found myself enjoying all that much. So now what?
Gaming has always been a huge passion of mine, so I didn’t want to simply give up. Instead, I decided to turn my YouTube channel into a website entirely focused around sharing gaming videos from other YouTube channels. The finished project ended up being a media-rich website that, in my opinion, made viewing videos a fun experience.
However, to make a long story short, I ended up axing the idea just a month or two after launch. I thought, why offer a video sharing site if something like YouTube already exists? There had to be a better way of expressing my love for gaming. Then it hit me…
Why not create a website that simply showcases my video game collection? Not only would this be a great way of keeping track of all my games that I’ve collected over the years, but it’d also be nice to be able to share my library with other gamers who are looking for something new to play. And with that said, I present to you the official (and final) Di Franco Gaming website.
To get started, feel free to explore my current collection that I already have featured. Over time I will be adding classic games from past generations. My library dates back to the NES days, so I have plenty of work ahead of me. Be sure to check back often, as the site will be updated regularly. This especially goes for my “Newest Purchases” section on the homepage.
I realize Di Franco Gaming has gone through several changes, but I do hope you enjoy this finalized idea. As always, I appreciate everyone’s ongoing support. If it weren’t for my awesome community and our shared love for gaming, I would’ve given up a while ago.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments you have regarding the website.
