Why are decent video game WordPress themes so difficult to find? Perhaps theme designers believe that gamers are less likely to blog than those into design or business.
Whatever there reasons it is clear that there are some designers that appreciate the power of websites dedicated to providing great information to the gaming generation – and that selling themes to great game blogger’s can be a profitable business.
I have selected only the best premium gaming themes from what is available, and I am confident that you will definitely find one that you like…good luck!
This is the latest gaming release from Magazine3, and arguably one of their best to date. The theme is loaded with amazing features, but perhaps the most useful for a gaming site being the star rating and scoring for reviews. It is truly a great video game WordPress theme for modern gaming websites.
The review feature is simply amazing, much better than I have seen in alternative themes…check out the reviews on the demo – truly inspirational design!
If you want a professional gaming site design then look no further.
Although this theme has been around now for quite sometime, it is still one of the best video game WordPress themes available.
The main advantage of purchasing this theme however is the fact that you will get access to 81 themes for the price of one ($39).
Do you love this theme?
3. Game Up
I have to admit to being a bit of a fan when it comes to Magazine3, which is why I offer another one of there themes as my third selection.
This theme is once again packed with features. The theme is AdSense ready and has a pretty cool news-ticker.
4. Game Now
This was one of the first premium themes that I ever purchased (though I ended up never using it).
If you purchase a theme from WPNow you always get a free theme with your purchase – two for one type deal.
The theme itself has two color options – light & dark.
Gameleon has been a big seller on Themeforest as it allows you to set up a website that is in fact an online arcade. Allow people to play games for free & make money with AdSense (if you choose to).
To enable the full capabilities of this theme you will also have to purchase MyArcadePlugin – it may not look like much, but it is the best script available to integrate with your WordPress website & this theme has been specifically designed to do just that.
A great theme for creating a gaming review website. Add videos and game screenshots to ensure your reader fully gets to grips with the game you are writing about.
7. Review It
This theme has been specifically designed to be used with WordPress & Buddypress. It is a review theme that offers numerous community features that are associated with Buddypress.
The theme not only allows editors to provide reviews, it also enables the community by allowing them to vote up, or vote down users comments.
8. Game Portal
This theme has been built using the 960 grid system, and also offers Buddypress support.
9. Max Mag
Now if I am honest I would never have thought to include this theme in my list of Wordtpress Themes for video gaming blogs, but having seen this website I think it lends itself well to the niche. Check out how they use the theme at slimgamer.com. (update: slimgamer.com no longer uses this theme)
There we have it a short list of the very best video game WordPress themes available from around the web – we will be sure to update this post once we have some new contenders.
