Occasionally I'll go there for news or something, but it's a hassle because I can't log in anymore and customer support wasn't very helpful. Also, these boards are more entertaining so I don't really need to go back to those forums. Actually, I think I'll make one last post.

I did two days ago.

#3 Posted by Jay4321 (71 posts) -

Nah, I've always prefered IGN actually. What made Gamespot was their video reviews from the guys here...go figure.

#4 Posted by Contra_dk (165 posts) -

No, that site is dead to me.

#5 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

Yes, I'm there more than I'm here.

Seriously. I was there for three years and I only had 8000 posts.

I'm logged into both placed at the moment.

Yah, haha. I'm the leader of a popular union there.

On Gamespot, I have 15,000 posts, and I've only really been posting actively for the last year.

Am i the only person on here who didn't start at GameSpot?

#12 Posted by efrucht (639 posts) -

I do to watch videos. Giant Bomb has a great community but as far as game journalism goes, it is pretty lacking.

#13 Posted by Shocker (2339 posts) -

I go there way less than i used to.

It's just you and the people out there that are too cool to admit it.

#16 Posted by MasterOfPenguins_Zell (2093 posts) -

I never did, but I've gone to Gamefaqs less now.

#17 Posted by TheGTAvaccine (2884 posts) -

I go there occasionally.

#18 Posted by BD (253 posts) -

Ive been at gamespot for about 3 years but ever since all the good people from the hotspot left I havent visited the site as much. Still have an account though.

#19 Posted by henjin (829 posts) -

Well I go there occasionally now, but I had a lot of posts before...

#20 Posted by ArmoredCore55 (281 posts) -

I sure do.

#21 Posted by Arestice (468 posts) -

I can't I'm banned. Twenty times over!

#22 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

When I go it's usually just by accident. I click on it after I type "G" in the address bar - GiantBomb and Gamespot are beside eachother.

#23 Posted by BloodRavyne (126 posts) -

Wouldn't it be cool if Ryan Mcdonald and Homer left GS and came to GB?

Banned for doing what?
#25 Edited by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

Nope, haven't been since this place "officially" launched. Like the reviewers better here, like the forums better (already.)

Nothing against GS or the people there or anything, it just changed drastically over the last year or so and feels completely different, not really my cup of tea anymore.

#26 Posted by stAtic (1638 posts) -

I have barely been to the site since GB aired.

#27 Posted by Veronin (87 posts) -

Yes except I'm still fucking suspended for saying "Stop making these threads please..." in a fad thread 4 days before the suspension. Not to mention it's supposed to be for one day except it's nearing the end of the second already...

#28 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

I quit recently, so to answer the question, no. Primarily to dedicate posting here full-time, but I'm extremely bored, already.

#29 Posted by MiniGuns (143 posts) -

I use GS from time to time.

#30 Posted by Fr0Br0 (3101 posts) -

Occasionally. I don't post anymore though.

Being a person that talks about Blu Ray vs DVD in System Wars.

Just because they locked the first topic doesn't mean they can't discuss it!

#32 Posted by MikPick (333 posts) -

I enjoy their video reviews, and occasionally Tournament TV. Lately I haven't used it too much though.

I'm waiting on the return of Button mashing.

#33 Posted by JNYR (112 posts) -

Gamespot is easily the worst big gaming site out there.

#34 Posted by Arestice (468 posts) -

I officially gave up w/ GS when they reviewed Condemed 2. That was just awful - if anything fire the guy that "reviewed" all he did was stand around in a cloak and list the different weapons you used and the review ended.

#35 Posted by Juuni_Kokki (69 posts) -

I do, i think ill be using both.

#36 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

I use both.

I'm a part of a lot of unions.

Not my fault they use a team of mildly retarded incompetent moderators.
Oh wait - discussing differences in hardware in the System Wars board is banable.
#41 Posted by Sparkcil (118 posts) -

Yes, but not for the forums.


For the videos, the inside (and not-so-inside) coverage, the "critics reviews" section (good for knowing what people think of games in general), and for a few other things that I can't think of right now.

Video reviews are made of win.

Like Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, with Ryan!
I was quite pissed off when I could only watch the first thirty seconds of the Odama video review (Ryan again!)...
#42 Posted by Batman (1016 posts) -

Yeah every once in a while, but only to the forums.  I haven't been there much though since this site launched.

#43 Posted by Absurd (2934 posts) -

Why do people keep talking about it ;_;

#44 Posted by SmugDarkLoser (4619 posts) -

I used to a bit, but not anymore.  The community is just nicer here and this is really just a better site. 

I do like their live interview game thingies.  On the spot.  Wish they had one here. It lost its touch at gamespot when the guys left.

#45 Posted by TanKLoveR (333 posts) -

Im always on GS but i rarely do anything anymore :P. I only have my account logged in to increase that 4.1% a day haha, and post on the TSS and the PC forum.

#46 Posted by Logan_Aybara (70 posts) -

I haven't been to GS since they fired Jeff.  Been using 1UP for news and reviews until GB launched.

#47 Posted by Crushmaster (44 posts) -

I'm on GameSpot a lot more than on here.
#48 Posted by Aarny91 (3914 posts) -

Yes it's my main site.

#49 Posted by Dual (47 posts) -

Sometimes go there to look at news and to browse the forums.

#50 Posted by DrPepper1990 (530 posts) -

I do like once a day, but this site is way better
