The field of gaming has come a long way in the past few years. Games are much more sophisticated these days. Even those that you can play on iPhone or Android handsets are of high quality. A lot of people are now making money playing games online and offline. Many more play games just for fun. If you are passionate about gaming, there is no reason you should not start your very own game portal.
Black Apenture is a highly dynamic theme that would work great for gaming portals and movie sites. It is image friendly and fully widgetized. Like many top gaming sites, it has a dark look and feel to it. Dynamic image resizing can save webmasters a lot of time entering their reviews.
Imperial for WordPress is another good looking theme that would work great for these types of sites. It has 2 color schemes (dark and light). It has a decent theme settings page and is highly customizable. Provides support for Twitter Tools, FlickrRSS, WP-PageNavi, and Subscribe to Comments plugins.
You certainly don’t want to start a game portal and starve to death by not making enough money for your efforts. Adding the appropriate Amazon Associates widgets to your website is a good place to start. You should also use Amazon Associates plugins to tag your links. Don’t forget to pick up a decent cache plugin.
