    GameBanana has a long history and it goes a bit like this:

    • Around 2001 the site was launched as a counter-strike 1.6 general resource site, called cscentral.com
    • Sometime later it became csbanana.com, still focussed on counter-strike 1.6 but also catering to counter-strike source.
    • At some point we started to shift towards a UGC community, and away from news and editorial content.
    • Sometime later we became fpsbanana.com as members wanted to submit mods for similar but non-cs games (e.g half life).
    • Briefly there was rpgbanana.com and rtsbanana.com but they disappeared.
    • Even more briefly we became banana.nu, before reverting to fpsbanana (I think?).
    • At some point it became GameBanana, recognizing that it had mods for games outside of the FPS genre.
    • Today it still has active counter-strike modders and a big library of CS stuff as this game continues to endure, but it also almost equally caters to non-PC platforms that are also moddable (WiiU, etc).

    There is a Wiki somewhere that explains things in more detail.
