I designed/developed a very similar site - www.ferrago.co.uk and I'm
currently mulling over a complete redesign.

I also face many of the issues that you are seeing - pollination is the
largest in my book. The nature of a gaming site is that the stories get
linked into by news sites and hence never usually see the homepage.

I don't believe that the main navigation attracts many users to click it
- gamers are generally younger (or younger at heart) therefore have a
shorter attention span. This is why we use eye candy in the form of the
featured story pictures to attract clicks - a lot more effective than a
list of links.
