For all the quests, the achievement tracking, the chat, the posts, the polls, the images and the visual style that didn't make the jump to Web X.0.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.

Achievement tracking, I miss you ._.

Wow the new site is just too compressed.. I can't tell the borders between your pictures and I dunno where your post ends and the background begins. This sucks.

What I miss is the 10 most recent topics at the bottom. I never really used the Forums main page, just scrolled down and bam!, I was right in it. Well, modern times are here I guess.

My main complaint.

I miss the old site, generally. When that design rolled in, the only things that really bothered me was that everything was a tiny bit too big at the beginning, but that got scaled back quickly and that I lost the blog feed, but the people who's blogs I cared about stopped making them anyway.

This one, I don't like. But at least it works better than I expected or experienced in the beta, although there's still some sluggishness, but that'll probably get settled in the coming days.

The forums are indeed what took the most beating in the transition. Everything else looks pretty smooth now.

I miss you, Coming Up Box

I haven't closed my tabs from last night... I don't handle change well :P

#9 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

The new site is poorly designed, don't know why they felt they had to make such a big change from the last design, everything worked how it should.

I feel this redesign is the jump from Windows 7 to Windows 8, everything is flashier but it takes more clicks to do what you want.

Achievements and forum tracking on front page is what I miss the most. Quests not so much.

Rest in Peace, old Giant Bomb design. Though you may have been eaten by a vicious sea serpent, we shall never forget.

NEVER FORGET!

Makes you realize how floaty the old site was. Everything's all jam packed together now. Overall liking the new site though.

Yep. It the main way I interacted with the forums. Rest in peace, Site Activity block.

I prefer to think of it as Web 20XX.

Also there is no way in this world or any other, that I have nearly the same post count as @capum15.

Lest we forget the front page forums. The part of the site which made me discover the forums right away.

Absolutely agree.

These forums are an absolute eyesore.

ABSOLUTE.

ABSOLUTE.

The forums need some work. A third of my page is empty once I get past the forums tab at the top. I think I'm ok with most of the rest, but that is a major problem for me, especially when using the site not full screened.

I really wish they would have kept achievement tracking! I actually used that! I'm fine with the quests going away, because that was definitely a fad for users and the staff it seemed.

I dunno guys, remember the original launch Giant Bomb? That shit was crazy, and they overhauled it after only a couple of weeks.

#40 Posted by kerse (2103 posts) -

I am indifferent, the look of the pages isn't why I come here.

Cool to see all this stuff archived. You served us well old Giant Bomb.

We should get a thread that shows all GB site changes over the years.

This is the only remnant of my glory to the community to survive the Seaserpent's wrath:

The suave, daring, unrivaled King of Video Games. He is on an EROTIC quest to see if lesbians indeed have the goods. BEWARE, the Moon.

#45 Posted by DizzyMedal (399 posts) -

Okay, to be fair I should have said functional Coming Up Box. You know, the one that's less annoying to read and actually displays things in your timezone.

The memories!

Jeez, it's hard to believe that the site's only been around for 5 years. Seems like it's been around forever.

10 years from now, I will be proud to say that I was with Giant Bomb from the very beginning.
