Hey guys, I just wanted to know if there are other games sites that you visit and if so, what do you like/hate about them? Full disclosure: I ask because a friend and I are in the process of making a site about games, but we want to make sure that we don't just do the same old shit again and again. Don't worry, I won't put a link in here.
For me personally I visit sites like Polygon and Gamespot for their news and go to sites like 1UP (Retronauts ftw) and Rockpapershotgun for their editorials. 1UP is how I found out about 8-4 and I was stoked when they announced that they were going to be hosted right here on Giant Bomb! Speaking of which, I personally think that GB changed the way video content was produced - they made it fun, relied less on scripts, and showed that it is cool to be mates with developers. Plus, they really pushed video as a major part of their content, I mean, most other sites now are trying to copy the Quick Look idea right?I remember Gamespot's heydey when we had On The Spot and the Hot Spot to look forward to every week. I'm sure a lot of us have come over from the old Gamespot cause, you know, WE LOVE JEFF, VINNY, RYAN, BRAD. PS I personally like Patrick's presence on the site. :)
So yeah, hopefully you guys have some other sites you like visiting and wouldn't mind talking about them.
PS. Mods, please let me know if I am violating rules or something. If I am I'll take it down. :)
