Eurogamer (initially stylised as EuroGamer) was launched on 4 September 1999.[1] The founding team included John "Gestalt" Bye, the webmaster for the PlanetQuake website and a writer for British magazine PC Gaming World; Patrick "Ghandi" Stokes, a contributor for the website Warzone; and Rupert "rauper" Loman, who had organised the EuroQuake esports event for the game Quake.[1]

In January 2008, Tom Bramwell overtook the role of editor-in-chief from Kristan Reed, remaining in that role until he resigned in November 2014.[2][3] Since then, Oli Welsh served as editor for Eurogamer.[4]

It is known for the EGX, formerly Eurogamer Expo, trade fair organised by its parent company since 2008.[5]

In February 2015, Eurogamer dropped its ten-point scale for review scores in favour of a "recommendation system", in which a game would be labelled as "Essential", "Recommended" or "Avoid".[6]
