It seems that for awhile now, GB has lacked variety. 90% of content produced is QL's and variations on QL's (random pc game, flight club). Now don't get me wrong, I love Quick Looks. Long, unedited gameplay was a great idea, and I'm glad it's BG's main focus. But I've been a user of GB since How to Build a Bomb: Episode 1, and it's a bummer to see not anything new and interesting from the crew.
GiantBomb used to try out a lot of things back then, they were always coming up with new ideas, and they did a lot more dumb shit on camera (look up "a wager fulfilled" and that coke drinking contest they had). And they've also cut a TON of stuff. What happened to the new and improved QOTW? Why did Wutang just stop and never come back? Remember when Jeff put out that weekly article about site traffic, where he told us the most played games and the most visited pages for that week? Remember how Intern Farmville just stopped and never returned, despite Ryan saying it would.
These things could've been cut for any number of reasons, the community didn't like it (that's why they cut the original QOTW), maybe a lack of funds from WM, which is what I hope, because it means interesting stuff in the future.
Hopefully soon we'll get out of this transition phase. I know these guys are creative and I know (or at least hope) they've got some new and interesting things planned for the future to utilize their new resources. I particularly hope the crew (namely Jeff, Ryan, and Brad) write more articles, just editorials. I love video content, but these guys are writers that don't do much writing outside of reviews. I'd love to read an article by Ryan on any given gaming topic. I'd actually love to see the guys put out some more content along the lines of what the interns had been doing, guides and stuff like that would be fairly easy to put together.
Anyone else feel this way? What kind of new things would you like to see from GB?
More stuff like this.
