GameFront (or Game Front) was a video game file hosting and news website owned by the Defy Media Gaming Network.

In 2015 news updates stopped being posted to the site which prompted the ArchiveTeam to create an archiving project for the site which saved most of the files as web archives (which are also available through the IA's WayBack service at their original URLs, for example).

On April 14, 2016 an announcement[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] was posted indicating the site was closing on April 30.
