A Brief History Of Video Games And Spiel Times

Video games have a long history. But it was the previous decade that was considered an important period having contributed to its progress.

Precisely, at the culmination of the 20th century, the video game industry catapulted to unfathomable heights and reached a position that would have only been anticipated as a dream before.

The ebbing shift in genres was an evolutionary mechanism and perhaps a driving factor that propagated the notion of individuality.

Over the course of time, games became more unique with notable characteristic variations. The late 1900s, as is often said, is a harbinger of change, led by more than a decade long of innovation that brought the market to the foot of prosperity.

Flourishing corporations set up their businesses in the hopes of making a score, and were they successful; their names would go down in history. And so it did. We get to hear about companies like id Software, Valve, Blizzard, Nintendo, EA, and Ubisoft.

These companies and their emblems have studded the intros of some of the most prominent titles, the first of their kind to have been made, for a long time and still survive to carry on their legacy.

Spiel Times Editorial Board 2024: A Fresh Start

The website was launched in the summer of July 2015 as a video-game journalism blog that deals with distributing the hottest, trending news free of cost. From then to today, it has quite effectively kept pace with the widest range of topics and adjusted itself as per market demands.

Spiel Times is not as old as any of these corporations or their products. In fact, until recently, it was not even a recognizable brand. It is the brainchild of a North-East Indian teenager and owes its origin to the growing interest in video games in the Indian subcontinent.

In 2021, we added friends to share the writing load and news coverage of both gaming and entertainment topics. Back then, we followed older ways of getting noticed online and chased popular topics. We learned SEO by watching online lessons and reading forums, like students with industry experts as our teachers. We weren’t a big company, just a group of passionate young people, helping each other navigate the world of online content.

Things changed in September 2023 with Google’s new rules for websites. We knew we had to adjust, so we carefully chose writers who understood the new guidelines and would follow them closely. Those who couldn’t adapt, we kindly said goodbye to. It was a difficult decision, but necessary to improve our website and follow Google’s new path. From over 30 writers in April, we’re now 6 core members, rebuilding and improving to offer only the best articles to our readers.

This isn’t a step back, but a forward leap. We’re slimming down to become faster, better, and closer to what you, our readers, want. Spiel Times 2.0 is rising from the ashes, ready to write its next exciting chapter. So, stay tuned, fellow gamers, for amazing stories and tips from the digital world! We’re back, stronger than ever, in this new online landscape.

Editorial Policies 2024

Our motto is to nurture the mainstream gaming industry in India and develop an interest among Indian gamers to ‘read’, ‘watch’, ‘interact’ and ‘get involved’ in the multitudinous dimensions of the growing market for video games in the country and the emergence of the e-sports industry altogether. To accomplish that, we have adopted a line of unique editorials tailored for the reader’s pleasure.

Wondering what gets our writers excited? It’s the awesome stuff we share with you! We dive deep into topics that really get our hearts racing, and we’ll give you our own unique take on things. We’ll keep you updated on the latest trends, but we’re not just repeating news. We’ll explain it, think about it, and share our opinions (because who doesn’t love hearing what others think?).

Deep Dives and Unique Takes:

When it comes to quality, we’re obsessed. Think of accurate, fair, and most importantly, fun-to-read content. We do our best to double-check everything so you can trust what you read.


We’re not like boring robots. We’re writers who love games just like you do! Our articles are like chatting with your closest gaming and entertainment buddy. If we’re sharing our thoughts, we’ll make sure to be clear and honest.

Community Engagement:

Community is everything to us! Drop a comment, connect with us on social media – let’s make this a two-way street. Your feedback is what keeps us going, so don’t hesitate! We’re here to create a Spiel Times world you’ll enjoy.

Diversity and inclusion? Of course! Everyone loves games and entertainment, and our content reflects that. Get ready for a mix of voices and perspectives that show how awesome our community is.

Quality Content, Not Keyword Chaos:

SEO? Forget about it. We’re friends, not machines. We won’t overwhelm you with complicated words. We believe in good content that’s easy to find and even easier to enjoy. We’re in it for the long run, not just short-lived trends.

Transparency Matters:

Independence is key for us! No strings attached, no big bosses. We protect our freedom to write what we believe in, not what some company dictates. Sponsored content? We’ll be honest about it, and it won’t change how we tell our stories.

HCU Game-Changer:

Talking about improvements, HCU was a game-changer! We decided to put more of our personalities into our articles. Now, reading the news feels more like chatting with friends, full of excitement and genuine geek-outs. We’re not just telling you what’s happening; we’re sharing the hype, the joy, and sometimes shedding a tear over a pixelated masterpiece.

Who Works Here And How To Join Us

Until recently, Spiel Times was run by a single person.

It is run by a body of the most talented writers from around the country. These people have astute knowledge of their respective fields and have invested plenty of time to regard themselves as proficient correspondents/authors.

One does not need a printed sheet of paper that confirms their educational standards to join us. To put it briefly, we do not accept degrees as materials of surety during the process of recruitment.

We strongly deplore any such practice as it fails to assess innate talents. Instead, we mandatorily check portfolios of previous works to determine individual abilities. In the absence of portfolios, trial articles are used as surrogate documents to decide a person’s potential.

Other than that, there are two very basic requirements –

  1. The person applying for a writing desk must be well-versed in English (knowledge of other languages is also appreciated and greatly helps in this line of work, but it is not a necessity).
  2. The person must possess great knowledge about the field they will apply for.

The Team

As a small but awesome unit, we guide each other to create amazing content. The Managing Editors are the behind-the-scenes playmakers, making everything work smoothly. Our writers are passionate about gaming, entertainment, and more. Each of us does our best to ensure every detail is correct. You can look at us as your best friend in this online world, making sure your voice matters.
