Ive been a user of the site since it was just a simple blog before it officially launched . I moved on from gamespot when jeff left and discovered arrow pointing down cast etc . Anyway when the site launched i never really bothered with the forums etc as that kind of thing didn't interest me much . I was only interested in the content . But now Giantbomb has become a site almost fro teh endurance run itself . About 70% including this thread on the forum are about the endurance run in some way . Whos your favourite character , Where is the next episode of the endurance run , favorite quotes from teh endurance run blah blah blah . Im sick of it . When giantbomb did the end of matrix online i went to the stream and about 99% of the chat was god damn quotes . Its not funny . Its boring and i wish it had never been made because then they could consentrate on better content . 
Just had to get that off my chest . 
 
p.s Stop quoting the fucking endurance run ! Your worse than the family guy fanboys !

Thing is, the Endurance Run has undoubtedly caused raises in traffic, and probably by pretty significant amounts.

#3 Posted by Breadfan (6586 posts) -

I've seen like one episode of the endurance run.  I mean I don't mind it, Persona just isn't my kinda game.   It is kind of annoying that people seem to only visit the site for it and don't contribute anything more than 'what are your favorite x' about Persona threads that aways pop up.

#4 Posted by emkeighcameron (1876 posts) -

I see the Endurance Run as only one part of a great website. It's certainly not (to me) the main focus of the site.
 
I think you're CRAZY. Absolutely insane. You need to be committed, right now, dammit.

@PowerSerj: And brought a load of anime loving idiots with them . Just look at the forum these days . Im not wrong
#6 Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan (1477 posts) -

First off, we're not worse than Family Guy fanboys, you know you didn't mean it. 
Secondly, I love it. It made me play Persona 4 and it quickly became one of it not my favorite game ever. 
Thirdly, it's not for you, oh well. Still, no reason to hate on it or anything, it's one of the sites mainstays because many people (Including myself) find it hilarious. 
 
Sorry you don't bro.

My thoughts exactly.

Persona 4 is a fan-triple-tastic game that deserves the attention it's getting. The fact that Giant Bomb has been recognizing this game and spreading it to the whole community is awesome.

#10 Posted by CowMuffins (1760 posts) -

Yeah seriously. No more endurance run quotes. They aren't clever, witty, or funny in any way.

So you obviously missed the, literally, 12 Quicklooks they did this week then right? You must have not seen the 14 Interviews with developers, and 3 Panel videos they posted this week. You also must have overlooked the 2 written reviews they did, and the 2 hour Podcast.
 
But you are right. There is nothing on GiantBomb but Endurance run. They might as well rename the site to GiantEnduranceRun.com

P.S. You're a fucking hater.
#12 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -
@Red: Then they should make a separate site or forum . I want more substantial content like Tang . Tang is a well made series that i thoroughly enjoy . I would love to see more content such as this

"GET BENT!" 

Making people stop quoting the endurance run is like telling Sneakers O'Toole to take his sneakers off.

@Asurastrike: Of course i saw the content . But in this post i am pointing out the taint of endurance run on the forums
#15 Posted by ErgoProxy77 (550 posts) -

I also don't really care about the endurance run.  However, I do not think it is a negative thing about the site.  

#16 Posted by Willin (1269 posts) -

I don't get why you have an negative opinion on someone who likes something about Giant Bomb because you like another part of Giant Bomb. You can like a game and each person can like a game in different parts but they overall they all still like that game.

So you are bitching about something you don't like, and judging those who like it? If anyone doesn't belong on GiantBomb, it's people like you, not "anime loving idiots".
#19 Posted by pause422 (6153 posts) -

Seeing as it was the most popular thing on the site since it started really and gave them way more traffic, obviously there is a good amount of people that disagree. No one is making you watch it, nor post in threads about it. So.....get the fuck over it.

#20 Posted by PowerSerj (987 posts) -
@turbomonkey138: You missed my point. It's brought lots of traffic to the site, which I like to think is a positive thing. Of course there will be side effects that some may or may not notice but hey, whatever.
#21 Posted by Willin (1269 posts) -

Would I be any different if I was quoting TANG or the Bombcast or any number of Quick Looks?

Pretty sure he is just reffering to the threads that are nothing more than posting favorite Persona quotes and things such as that.

I looooove balls! 
 
Come on, lighten up people. Persona 4 isn't really my kind of game either, but the Endurance Run is actually pretty fun to watch and it's good that giantbomb is focusing on a diverse array of games, from the extremely western to the extremely Japanese.

So what you're saying is, you don't want to be Rank 10 with the Endurance Run Watchers Arcana? 
 
 
Edit: Sorry I clicked the wrong dude Asura.

Maybe GiantBomb isn't for you.
#27 Posted by teh_destroyer (3556 posts) -

The endurance run is not all about Persona 4, they also did the Matrix Online, and some other game that was set in the same universe as the Persona series was.

#28 Posted by Claude (16251 posts) -

I think it's awesome. I've only watched five episodes, but I'm smart enough to notice an Endurance Run quote when I see one. Good for Giant Bomb. Quick Looks and behind the scenes stuff are my favorite.

#29 Posted by bonbolapti (1590 posts) -

I've learned to never read the comments. 
 
The endurance run is actually pretty cool if you just ignore the ones that beat it to death :D

I don't even watch the Endurance Run, you just annoy me.
#34 Edited by Branthog (7332 posts) -
@turbomonkey138: So don't watch the Endurance Run or participate in discussions about it. What's next, you're going to dictate what games people should play or discuss or that the QOTW and Mailbag must cease to exist because they're not explicitly related to a particular game? I haven't really watched the endurance runs either, though I plan to someday, but it hasn't gotten my panties in a twist and I have not found that all of the discussions are related to it. Hell, I don't particularly care for anime, but I don't bleat like a molested sheep every time a thread is filled with people who have stupid anime character avatars.
 
Think of Giant Bomb as the internet. They both have a LOT of content and nobody's force feeding every last ounce of it to you. Take what you like and leave what you don't.
 
Also, nobody is as bad as idiots who quote Napolean Dynamite.

  Not only that, but I hope that when they finally finish it (if that EVER happens) they'll move on to something else awesome to play through. For those who don't like it (which may or may not be me -- we'll have to see)... well... there's plenty of balloon fetish porn out there to entertain them.
#35 Posted by DanielJW (4915 posts) -
@turbomonkey138: Why are you so angry about it? I don't understand. If you don't like it don't watch it. Why can't you let people enjoy something?
#36 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -
@Asurastrike: Ok you have made you point now go please . This thread is discussing the problems i have with giantbomb and you are not helping the case for giantbomb right now .
#37 Posted by Breadfan (6586 posts) -

This thread is going bad real fast. 
 
If you don't like something cool, no need to start calling it 'the idiot side of Giant Bomb', everyone likes different things.

And, I don't watch the Endurance Run. Not a JRPG fan.

@DanielJW: Im not angry . Just disappointed in a way .
#41 Posted by Termite (2395 posts) -

As a person who visits the site regularly, and has been with Giant Bomb since the site launched, I have to say that the Endurance Run is EXCELLENT. 
 
1. Jeff and Vinny are awesome, and their commentary is hilarious
2. It brought a lot of traffic to GB
3. It's spread the word about Persona 4
4. They're still making other awesome content on the site, so that's not a problem
5. It's something very unique about GB, and it helps further differentiate it from the other sites out there.

Well with what? I mean you can argue they could make other content, but that's your opinion. If they made other content, than different people wouldn't be happy with the content you like, am I right?

Were not forcing you to read every thread on the Endurance Run. I'm not forcing you into the Persona 4 forum. If you see a Endurance Run related thread you don't have to click it. The only references to the ER is the Persona 4 forum and the odd thread in General or Off-Topic.

I heard Gamespot has a great forum community, and they don't do Endurance run. You should check that place out.
#48 Posted by yeahno (269 posts) -

Guys! .........what's up

#49 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -
Before this thread turns into a flame war . Lets get back on my original point . Giantbomb (IN MY OPINION) has too much Persona 4 related content . This is mainly apparent in the forums . Dont get angry at me becuase i pointed out something negative about the site.
#50 Posted by oldschool (7264 posts) -

Persona used to be cool until it became fashionable with the kids around here.  Now every dweeb, dork and nerd likes it because they think it is cool and they might get noticed by posting about it.
 
I am just going to play my copies of Persona 3 & 4, but keep it to myself.  I haven't watched a single ER or read a single thread, so as not to risk my enjoyment of the series.
