GameDaily (GD) was a video game journalism website based in the United States.

It was launched in 1995 by entrepreneur Mark Friedler under the name Gigex and focused on free game demo downloads.[1] The site changed its business model from a flat fee per download CDN distributed service network to an advertising-based games content portal, content syndication and vertical ad network. The site also operated business news service GameDaily Biz.

The network grew to the number one position in ComScore's Games/Gaming Information category in March 2005 and was acquired by AOL on August 16, 2006.[2] The site offered articles on different video game topics, with a lot of lists where games are ranked.

In 2011, the GameDaily brand was retired. Its staff and content were merged with Joystiq, another video game website owned by AOL.[3]
