I have what may prove to be an unpopular opinion to share. I will be questioning the motivations and choices of some of the Giantbomb Staff in this topic, so if you feel you can't bear to witness this heinous act, please read no further.
On this week's Bombcast, Jeff mentioned that he "streamed" some C64 games for a few hours. After getting home from work, I searched excitedly for an archive of said stream on the site, but could find none. Hitting upon a brainstorm, I did a search for his Twitch channel, and lo and behold, there was his archived stream.
I guess this just left me a bit bewildered. If the Bomb Crew are going to be streaming gaming related content, why don't they do it on the site that they, you know, make gaming related content for. Or at least connect their Twitch stream to the GB site so that it can possibly be archived. I am further confused because I was under the impression that this site was always going to be a place for the appreciation of all games, past, present, and future. So, if Jeff is going to stream some older games, why not do it on GB itself and attach the video to those games' pages.
Before you all rip me to shreds, I understand that the guys are free to do whatever they want and all that, it just seems weird that they run a game centric website and then post game centric content somewhere else.
What am I missing?
