IGN is an abbreviation for the company’s previous name, Imagine Games Network. IGN is an entertainment website that provides information on electronic media, such as video games and films.
Reviews for television shows and video games are found on IGN. Video game reviews are rated on a scale of 10, although IGN rarely gives games a score of 10. Gamers are also able to view updates and news on upcoming video games. In 2013, IGN was sold to publishing company Ziff Davis, and it is operated as a subsidiary of j2 Global as of 2014. After the acquisition, IGN closed its other websites, such as GameSpy and UGO.
