Started as founder Yanier "Niero" Gonzalez's blog in 2006, and relaunched in 2007 with a staff of contributors. Features community blogs — without editorial supervision — as well, and a large output of articles.
In 2014, new information revealed the questionable behavior of its management during the 2013 termination of their journalist Allistair Pinsof, which put the site on GamerGate's boycott lists, despite the immediate updates to their ethic policy taken during the consumer revolt and later refinements that extended the disclosure policy even to Kickstarter backing.
While Destructiod is often accused in GamerGate material of participating in the "Gamers are Dead" media blitz, their contribution was an unsupervised community blog, with an extremely mild possible entry from the site's staff coming out days later.
Offers fairly frequent anti-GamerGate content, although the community content can also swing in favor of the consumer revolt.
