Default GameRankings goes offline

The site will officially go offline on Monday, December 9, and will redirect visitors to sister site Metacritic.
Not sure what to think. Metacritic generally sucks.

Never been to that site but then again I’ve never been to meta critic either. So I guess I’m ok with it.

That's a sad thing - Gamerankings is one of the ANCIENT sites, along with GameFAQs. I have to admit, I haven't looked at it in eons, though. (I do still pop into GameFAQs from time to time, though that's getting left behind by wiki's and Steam guides.)

Then its probably time to make an archive copy of it (if this is legal). It can be made with HTTrack, for example.

Edit : I've found a dungeon exploring mini game on one 404 page : https://www.gamespot.com/pc/adventur…eenindex.html/

Archive.org should have it backed up.
