I have them saved in my faves right next to each other and all the time I'm looking at Gamespot and I don't even realise. It's getting really annoying now though, like surely Gamespot should have gone for a different look? Right now I don't see any point in both sites, might as well merge...

I never make mistakes when it comes to Gspot.

GameSpot functions a bit better than Giant Bomb right now, so there's always that difference.

I do think they look different enough. GB is a lot more blown up on the home page while GS takes the exact opposite approach, cramming in too much stuff.

I love Gbombing the ol' Gspot

I haven't been to Gamespot since the redesign so this topic prompted me to check it out.

Yeah, they're more similar than they used to be, but there are some very distinct differences between them. I can't imagine mixing them up.

Not really, but Moviefone has tricked me a few times at quick glance when switching tabs.

I like to drop Gbombs on the Gspot if you know what I mean.

Here let me run through things to help you.

Step 1: Do not be a Savage. Use the top right button on the website to view GB the way it is supposed to be, White text on Black/Grey background.

Step 2: Leave Game Spot as white.

Step 3: Rarely visit Gamespot.

And done.

Edit: I put on the white theme for GB for a second..OH GOD it was horrible.

After reading this I immediately turned the Gamespot page black so I have less reason to visit it. Thanks.

No, I have never voluntarily visited GSpot - I've heard it's in the ass. I think I'll stick to GBomb.

It's still crazy to me that new GB defaults to the white background for all incoming users now. The black background is what kept this site from looking like every other site on the net (and it's much easier on the eyes, and I don't just mean that from an aesthetic perspective).

No, I can tell which one is Gamespot by how slowly it loads
