So I've been a regular visitor here for a few years now. I came here from IGN because the community seemed so much more intelligent and mature. The content was more unique. You really got the feeling that everyone involved cared about what they're doing. And as far as the regular site goes, it's better than ever.
Recently however, Ive noticed something. The forums here have been getting more and more juvenile. I won't mention any thread's specifically, but within the last month or so the amount of fanboyism, rage, and general infantile discussion has seemed to be taking over. Now don't get me wrong ZombiePie's community spotlight is still amazing. But due to the general feeling I've been getting from the forums that's the only place I go now. Just roaming around the boards has lost it's appeal.
So why am I saying this? Because I love Giant Bomb. I love the community that it has created (Dota 2 GB guild duders are amazing). And I love games. I want to talk about games. I want to hear other people talk about games. Can't we do it while keeping our head's straight? While reading over what we say before we post it? While adding to the community, making a difference, and generating original ideas among some really cool people? I hope so. I don't want to leave.
