GS

#3 Posted by Celegus (82 posts) -

I stopped going to GS when Jeff left. Not because I was boycotting "the man", but because there wasn't anyone interesting left there. It was hard enough when Rich left. So I've been here since the site launched as a blog, and it's pretty darn snazzy now.

I guarantee you that at least 90% of the people here are from GS.

I came from GS.  This place is definitely better.

Kotaku.

#12 Posted by Duffman (208 posts) -

I came from the Gamercast Network, which is a group of indie podcasts.

#13 Posted by Dead_Pixel (36 posts) -

I frequented several sites depending on what type of gaming news I was looking for.

Tom's Hardware - for all my hardware and technical discussions.
N4G.com - lots of silly fun being had over there, some big fanboys.
gonintendo.com - sometimes that place is overflowing with rabid Ninty fanboys.
Gamespot/IGN - for the usual commercial BS.
Ars Technica - sometimes have interesting articles.

Giant Bomb is looking good so far.

GS, this will definitely replace GS in my bookmarks list.

#21 Posted by Casual (22 posts) -

sw.com

GS before that, but I haven't posted there much since 05.

#22 Posted by Feanor (1391 posts) -

www.google.com   I just googled Jeff's name one day to see if he had gone somewhere since the whole gamespot thing.  Thats when I found his blog.

#23 Posted by Mordok44 (173 posts) -

I came from Gamespot, to much talk of this amazing site so I moved here

Same here all I read was "Are you leaving GS for GB?"
#26 Posted by iKlutch (10 posts) -

Was on GameSpot but got banned for no reason. I was never moderated or anything and one day I go online and got a PM that I was banned. Then I moved over to GameTrailers, which was so shitty that I couldn't wait until GiantBomb launched.

#27 Posted by bread_or_decide (136 posts) -

I came from gamespot.  Tired of all their mod bullshit. Gamespot is dead. long live Giant Bomb.
I hope the mass exodus from Gamespot has begun. They can keep their bought scores and bullshit mod system.

GameFAQs

#29 Posted by Ehden (214 posts) -

I was formerly Big_Player over at GS but after 4 years of being there it seemed like a good time to leave.

#30 Posted by Vision (796 posts) -

Gamespot
i'm only hanging out in the unions these days.

#31 Posted by Delriach (5 posts) -

I don't have any specific place I come from really. I visit and post on many forums. GameFAQs would be the one I post the most frequently though.

#32 Posted by RVonE (4700 posts) -

I've been on Gamespot for the past seven or eight years. I came to Jeff's blog when all the mess went down and from there I moved to the Giant Bomb Blog.

Hopefully not. GS has been a shithole since 05/06. No point in bringing all the dumbasses here.
#34 Posted by WizzyKid (259 posts) -

I found out about this website from Jeff's blog, which in turn I found out about from Gamespot.

#35 Posted by Caje (138 posts) -

GameSpot, probably not going to be active there anymore though.

Hulk been big fan of Jeff Gerstmann's work for many years now.  Hulk always read Jeff's blog on Gamespot and watched every episode of points.  Hulk also a bit of an achievement whore.  Hulk follow Gerstmann to his blog site, then to here.

Gamspot, GamePro, and joystiq, I hope GB destroyes them all in almighty video game rightousness

#40 Posted by HazBazz (1901 posts) -

Giant Bomb is basically the home of ex-Gamespotters.

#41 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I was a long time member of Gamespot, but left for obvious reasons. Ever since that little "incident" I've just been jumping from place to place. I spend the majority of my time at 1UP just because I love their staff, but I really hate the way their forums are set up. I've basically just been waiting for Giant Bomb to launch and now that it's here...I couldn't be happier.

#42 Posted by GleasonRyan (244 posts) -

I was still going to gamespot but im most likely gonna stop since the only kool person there is arron. all my favortie editors are here minus Alex

#43 Posted by General (54 posts) -

GS, plan on using GB for most of my game content now.

#44 Posted by TurboMan (7729 posts) -

I was at Gamespot, but I left immediately after certain events took place

but now I'm here!

#45 Posted by MildlyPsycho (77 posts) -

I joined Gamespot for the great insight that Jeff and Ryan brought to the table.  I'd been following the side project so closely that I knew when this site dropped I would move in for the long haul.  It is a great site.

#46 Posted by Spark (46 posts) -

Gamespot. I mostly hung around the System Wars forum. This place seems great.

I agree, the mods SUCKED!! I almost got suspended for posting in a 4 day old thread....wow.
