About us

The idea for whatoplay first came as an answer to the question, “How do we pick which games to play?”.

With hundreds of video games released each month, it's impossible for any one person to sort through it all and find the gems. But with the help of the whole gaming community (gamers, publishers, developers and critics), the task becomes easier.

whatoplay is your portal to discovering video games.

We keep track of new and upcoming games on all gaming platforms — PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS,

The playscore

Tracking releases is not enough. To help assess the quality of the games, we aggregate critic and gamer ratings from around the world and present them using the playscore.

The playscore is an indicator of the overall quality and reception of a video game. It is based on the opinions of thousands of critics and gamers.
