Question Your Opinion on .game Domains

Alright, I"m curious to know what you guys think of the new .game extension?

I'd like to purchase a decent .game domain but $5000 seems silly. I understand viewing it as an investment, but wouldn't you have infinitely better odds of someone bumping into friv42.com domain vs an extension nobody's ever used before?

Everything I've read about game sites is keep the name short and under .com

What gives man!?!?!

U$ 5000? Where? I checked GoDaddy right now, and a .game domain is U$ 426,00 there.

Checked here now, very weird. In my opinion, it's not worth the price. Remember, it's not once, you will pay this every year.

Take a look: https://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=arcade%20games

Good luck!

Who says he'll use arcade.game just to target Arcade Games?, plus the term "arcade" is extremely out dated and nobody uses that lingo anymore except for older users.

The domain extension .Game is only useful to higher end websites who can correctly market it as for small to medium end websites, don't waste your time with it as many users still prefer .com or dot their country over such extensions as .mobi and other dot extensions.

You don't need to spend money to become better, I think most days game portal webmasters think that throwing cash at a website is what makes a website become big and that's not even near the case. It works in a very very short term solution but if your here for the long-term. Don't waste your money and don't spend it on fruitless things like cars, houses or even pointless software that you'll never use.

Be smart, don't be sheep to the after trend.

Regards,
Antz
