A vertical without our a leader – Games

Every vertical on the web has a go to source – a search engine, a social network that encompasses that network.  For information it’s Google,  for social it’s Facebook, for shopping it’s Amazon and on and on. Each one of these has worked to aggregate it’s vertical and present it in a way that makes it the go to source for those items. 
Games, does not have that.  There is no single source where ALL the game information is stored.  There is no where I can go to find out the rules to Canasta,  buy an expansion to the table top game Carcasonne, find out where I can play an arcade cabinet of Ms. Pac-Man and play an online game from Pogo.com.  The game information aggregator does not exist.  This is an opportunity lost.
Until someone tries to build the mega games data base,  I will continue to advocate for it.  There has to be someone who can combine, gamespot.com, paget.com, boardgamegeek.com and Kongregate into something usable, playable and a must visit. Am I wrong?  Why hasn’t this been done?
