I know for some of you it's going to seem silly, but that graphic and chord is like a cornerstone of this site, at least for me. 4 years that thing has been around. It's pleasant to the ears. At the very least, if they do change it, they should keep the sound or just change it up a little bit so that it's still recognizable but more awesome. The graphic I guess I can part with.

Don't hate me Vinny.

I think it depends on how awesome the new bumper would be.

I LIKE NEW SHIT

It's one of the only things I can hear in my head straight away. All I have to do is think of the logo and it's like "Bwah-Dun". I don't know how I'd feel if they took it away.

#6 Posted by Maajin (1052 posts) -

Nope. I would love a new one.

#7 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

I like it just fine. As long as a new one wouldn't be longer or more obnoxious though, I guess I wouldn't care if they changed it up.

Pretty much this. It would be weird to hear another tune after all these years. Besides, it lasts, what, 5 seconds? I can't see how anyone would ever have a problem with it.

#9 Posted by face15 (1274 posts) -

A new one would be cool cause new stuff is cool...

But I do love the old one a whole lot. It's iconic.

i don't know what a bumper is so i don't know. is that the little video intro thingy? if so, i wouldn't mind if it stayed. i'm not sure how i'd feel if it was replaced.

#11 Posted by Fattony12000 (7047 posts) -

Karen to do the new voice over for it.

#12 Posted by TheHT (10880 posts) -

i miss the alternate pictures, like... "video review".

but i still like the style and sound effects. maybe they could redesign the background a bit.

Yes, that's what it is.

#14 Posted by CptBedlam (4449 posts) -

As iconic as the oId/current one is, I'm ready for something fresh.

#15 Posted by Nev (540 posts) -

I would not mind a new one.

"Bwah-Dun" is such a poor representation of that sound that I'm not sure you're even on the correct website.

#17 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

I'm bad with change. D:

#18 Posted by Nux (2305 posts) -

I like the bumper we have now. I wouldn't want them to change it.

#19 Edited by GreggD (4477 posts) -

Didn't Jeff say it was for subscriber-only features? Like, to replace the cold opens they have now?

#20 Posted by RetroVirus (1457 posts) -

If there's an option to choose which one, that'd be fine, but it's their call.

#21 Posted by AlisterCat (5482 posts) -

Yep.

#22 Posted by mlarrabee (2885 posts) -

They can change the visuals, if they must.

The audio stays.

#23 Edited by CaLe (3911 posts) -

I like new things better than old things, so no. If they have something newer, I want that.

F**k nostalgia.

F**k tradition.

#24 Posted by HatKing (5817 posts) -

I wouldn't be opposed to them changing the text to some more specific. "Quick Look" "Endurance Run" "Interview"

#25 Posted by Spoonman671 (4558 posts) -

Do not care.

#26 Posted by crusader8463 (14412 posts) -

Only if they can find a way to make it more mature and gritty.

#27 Posted by ajamafalous (11848 posts) -

I don't think they should change it, and I don't think they should get rid of the review images either.

#29 Posted by Clonedzero (4091 posts) -

i dont give a shit either way.

its a video bumper. who cares? lol

#30 Posted by chilibean_3 (1622 posts) -

I think they should replace the bumper with a really loud commercial. The same really loud commercial.

#31 Edited by TruthTellah (8535 posts) -

The sound is what matters to me, not the graphic. So, if they can maintain the sound but change the graphic, it's fine with me.

It's like the bootup sound Macs make or a THX test at the beginning of a film. At this point, I can hardly imagine watching a Giant Bomb video without it.

#32 Posted by Phatmac (5721 posts) -

I'd be for a new bumper!

#33 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10473 posts) -

I would be very angry for about a week if they changed it.

#34 Posted by FLStyle (4577 posts) -

Unlike a lot of things that have happened to Giant Bomb this year, I have no strong opinion either way on this.

#35 Posted by LikeaSsur (1495 posts) -

If it's not broke, why fix it?

#36 Posted by Gutterkisser (189 posts) -

Can't help feeling a little attached to the audio, wouldn't find if the image was updated though. Either way, I trust you guys to shepherd design on the right path.

#37 Posted by C2C (855 posts) -

I say keep it. If it aint broke don't fix it.

#38 Posted by SJSchmidt93 (4884 posts) -

I like the current one but wouldn't really care if they switched it.

#39 Posted by Aegon (5402 posts) -

I just got back after initially making the thread, and looky here. 75% say keep it!

Also, this:

#42 Posted by laserbolts (5311 posts) -

It doesn't really matter to me.

#43 Posted by MikkaQ (10268 posts) -

It is most definitely time for a change. Those bumpers don't really match any other visual themes across the site anymore.

#44 Posted by CaptainCody (1505 posts) -

It is the most iconic thing on Giant Bomb besides the bomb itself.

#45 Posted by chrismafuchris (1088 posts) -

At this point, it's difficult for me to even imagine what watching one of their videos without the bumper would be like, so it's very difficult for me to actually have an opinion on the matter. For me at least, the current bumper has gotten to a state where I don't even notice it's there, whereas I would probably notice any revised bumper every time, which could probably get pretty annoying, at least for a short while.

#46 Posted by Video_Game_King (36003 posts) -

They're getting rid of it?

Vinny and Jeff want to get rid of it and make a new one.

"Bwah-Dun"

FWOOSH (boop)

I've got no problem with the bumper the way it is now, but if they changed it, it wouldn't take long new thing to get ingrained into my head the same way. Just like whenever they change the bombcast theme.

#49 Edited by Irvandus (2824 posts) -

Hell yes, buh dum is like the Law and Order noise. If Law and Order didn't have that noise, well, it just wouldn't have been Law and Order.

Edit: You know what, maybe a new background, but keep the noise.

#50 Posted by Podunk (19 posts) -

You guys have the onomatopoeia all wrong.

It's "shuh-jaaaaang", obviously.

I mean come on.
