Wow! I would say 'Job very well done'. The site looks very professional and inviting.

I like the green on grey and the logo is awesome. The image hover is great too.

Keep up the good work!

:genius: This website is amazing, it is very well designed and looks extremely VERY PROFESSIONAL and I am going to use it myself and sign up because it is so great but I think there could be a little more user feedback e.g. when the user hovers over a game the box could turn white etc and some more hover effects on buttons that do not have them. Apart from that this website is very VERY nice. :genius:

Ok I must say, Amazing job on the site. It looks great and extremely professional.

The only thing that I can think of as far as change is concerned is the spacing between the sidebar and main content. It does not appear to be the same size as the spacing on the header and footer group of games that is nested in the main content.
It may also be a good idea to make the sidebar a little bigger so it will line up with the bottom group.

Design is decent but when it gets down to it you need to refine it more.

The site feels crowded, there's an inconsistency in the lining up of elements from one form of division to the next (6 box vs 2 box vs box don't line up correctly)

Whitespace is low in the design which causes the crowding effect I mentioned earlier. Liberal padding and a good amount of margin can help tremendously

The navigation font is blurry, switch to a preferably aliased font for clarity. In fact, most of the type looks blurry which can do a number on your guests. Crisp sharp edges do wonders, and 1px stroke or the classic 2px black/white stroke type can help accent while sharpening the look of the site.

The footer is excessive, make an about page and put it there.

I think it was a good idea to not line up the boxes. I feel it breaks the page up into sections more. Besides, isn't the homepage supposed to draw in a user? Wouldn't a lot of padding and margining separate the images more and possibly move images down so users don't see them? I feel the crowded looking home page is what is in now.

On another note, when I navigate to a site I rarely ever even read or even look at the home page. I mostly use the navigation only on the homepage.

I do agree, however, with the blurry font. I guess I overlooked this at first glance.

Even 2-5px of padding makes a large difference in readability.

Okay, true. I was thinking 10-15px. Thanks for clarifying though.
