The colors used are really cool yet the font color should be made a bit brighter so it would be easy for users to read. Maybe increase the font size a bit. The header takes alot of time to load and directoris should be simple and quick loading.Otherwise well desgined and welll aligned site.

I love the colors you've chosen for the site they suit the "gaming feel". The flash banner loaded quickly and looks great. I have to agree with sana and suggest to possibly make the font bigger or change the color as the text is a bit difficult to see.
The only other thing I wondered was if you could change the font color of your Google banner on the forum page. (Possibly to a silver-grey to match your banner?) That way it would stand out from the rest of your text but it would also blend in with the color scheme.

Nice job ...I think it looks great :)

You might try matching the main text font color with the sub-navigation bar color at the bottom of your page and then maybe darkening that to match your headers above. Just an idea, but I still like the site.

The layout and color scheme is awesome (I love the layout!) It was easy to understand, a nice forum. Though I reccomend you put some RPGs on there, other than that I liked it.

Very, very nice site. I am an avid gamer and I can assure you that a link for that will be posted in my clan forums for the rest of my clan mates to check out. One thing though is I concur that the font colour should indeed be brighter.

Under the directory page, I would get rid of the word "gaming" after each section since it applys to them all. If you decide to keep them, then I would make the 'G' in 'Playstation Gaming' lowercase like the rest. Call me picky.

Very good site!

Only one thing. Your site name says it's a gaming directory, so I was looking for that directory. I ended up in the forums, because the most recent news currently shows news about the directory (clicked on it). Later I noticed the buttons on top with ''forums'' and ''directory''.

Maybe make the text color of navigation buttons on top a different color or bold.

Good luck with site. The animation on top rocks! Even the sound isn't disturbing.

It's a nice looking design, however, it is extremely difficult to read the dark writing on the dark background using a CRT monitor. Maybe try making the text colour more white.

I really liked the layout of the site. I'm not a big fan of the colors though. I think the site would be more appealing if it were brighter. I'm not saying it should be neon green or anything, just brighter.

Hello,

The design is looks very clean and simple, works great too especially the flash menu.

But, you need to fix a few things. Like someone else mentioned, brighten up the letters / font so it is it is much easier to read. People can just get fustrated and leave. The Font/size in the directory is great.

Can you blend in the adsense ads better? I know you may want them to stand out for more clicks, but it gets alittle annoying when browsing the directory.

On 1280 x 1024 the website ends at 60/70% down the end of the page, and there is just a line cutting off the design. I think you should tinker with this, either extending it for a full page in 1280 x 1024 or make it curve and close nicely if you know what im talking about.

I also dont know why, but in firefox theres just a strip of white under the menu, that needs to be taken care of.

Overall i think its a good site with potential, good job.
