I think you are

W

Find me on a compass, lamers.
W is for West

I have shown the way for gamers.
W is for moving forward in 'WASD' controls

My neighbors describe this site.
a: I guess this is a reference to the alphabet, the neighbours are U and V, hence 'double-U'
b: This is another reference to the first line, where "this site" is SE, also the neighboring points to W on the compass. (Thanks Lolgast, not sure if this is what you meant)
c: The keys on a Qwerty keyboard that directly touch W are QASE, for Question and Answer, Stack Exchange. (suggested by VotBear)

    $\begingroup$ For the neighbours line, I'm almost positive it should be FR (using rot13). $\endgroup$ – Lolgast Jan 12 '18 at 9:44

  • $\begingroup$ (Hmmm, E isn't strictly W's neighbour on the compass. I thought that SE referred to the keys next to W on a keyboard. But I guess the compass interpretation is valid, too.) $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Jan 12 '18 at 9:55
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah I couldn't quite match it with the compass perfectly either, but it's way too good a match for the second part of the sentence to be incorrect if you ask me. $\endgroup$ – Lolgast Jan 12 '18 at 9:59
