To a games marketer, Raptr is priceless.  Through their stats-tracking app they know what nearly 9 million gamers are playing and the kind of stuff they're doing in their games.  Thus, they and have a pretty good idea which group of people are most likely buy that brand new super-derivative game your company's been working on.  

After years of perfecting their data they've not released something pretty unexpected: they've turned their web site into a consumer news portal that's personalized to the player's tastes.  You an also submit your favorite stories (from Destructoid!) and vote them up and down. Yes, it's basically Reddit Gaming with personzalization. But there's so much more to it -- the profile pages are actually pretty deep.  The site is still in beta and they're hungry for feedback.  What do you want from your social gaming site?
