@turbomonkey138: Eesh, I haven't picked on you in like 6 months, but you're still making these dipshit threads. I wish I still had that fucking naked picture of you that you had on your profile so I could post the de-motivational poster I made from it here. God damnit. The endurance is fun for them to film, fun for us to watch, and increases the traffic to the site, it's in no way a bad thing.

" @Lights_Up_The_Shaft: the odd thread eh ? go look right now and see how many threads there are on the forums right now "
Just had a look in general. 45 non-sticky threads and one of them was remotely Endurance Run related, which was not only a blog post but if was about Giant Bomb in general. I only included it because it had the word 'Endurance' in the title.

" 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. "
It's not something negative. The majority of the users of Giantbomb enjoy the Endurance run, and those that do not just ignore it.. There is plenty of content on Giantbomb completely unrelated to the Endurance run, you just dwell on what you believe to be the negative. If 12 Quicklooks, 14 interviews, 2 reviews, a podcast, and 3 panel videos aren't enough to counterbalance the Endurance run aspect of the site for you, then I don't know what to say.
 
Also, are you generally intolerant of other peoples interests in your personal life, or is this something you reserve for the internet where you have anonymity?

I used to think this one thing was cool until you started thinking it was cool, then I decided that the only way I could continue to be cool was to stop liking the thing I used to think was cool and ridicule you for thinking it's cool. Want a clove cigarette while we listen to some Harvey Danger?

Linkin Park was cool until other people thought it was cool, then it wasn't cool.

I have only watched the first 5 episodes. But if it wasnt for that I wouldnt have bought Persona 3 and 4 so I like it for that alone.

Yes. there are people out there who have said they havent watched it anyway. And have somehow had the mental stability to not make a thread hating on it.

#67 Posted by Tearhead (2168 posts) -
@turbomonkey138: In your original post you say the forums didn't "interest" you. If this is so, why do you care what anyone says in them? Plus, you make it seem like the endurance Rum is GB's only content, they have MUCH... MUUUUUCH more. The Endurance Run isn't the reason there is not as much, say, TANG as you may like. They are separate features and one isn't dependent on the next. As mentioned before, if the forums don't interest you, then why do you have 1,449 posts? It is very easy to ignore the Endurance Run. It's not like they force it on you. I don't really like TANG all that much, but you know what? I just don't pay attention to it, cause my special ability called "free will" allows me to.

@Tearhead: Forums in general bore me . And when i have nothing else to do i post on here as this site has some interesting people on it . Although i seem to have touched a nerve with some users . Its my opinion . Also the reason why i am posting about this issue is becuase i remember when there was no endurance run on giantbomb . People would have proper discussions on the forums and there were less idiots . although the ER has made my favourite site more popular . Just the good content has become a little .... scarse these days

What do you enjoy on Giantbomb then? As I've stated, and restated, this week alone there were 14 interviews, 12 Quicklooks, 3 Panel videos, 2 written reviews, and a Bomcast.

That's ridiculous. Persona has not affected the quality of the conversations here, save for a couple of times someone shouts out Bufu. Stop whining over nothing.

#74 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

I kind of wish they never made Mini Sirloin Burgers, I have a dangerous addiction now. 
 
And to keep from being off topic, I like em. Endurance Run Theater 3000. I was a lurker or hoverer (I don't know) on the site until the iPhone app came out. I signed up because I had a question about the app. But I have been watching the ER for a long time and although I would have to disagree about it being the main draw to the site. I believe that is very short sided. The videos, the bombcast, the ER, the easy to swallow news stories and the care that goes into everything is really all part of an evenly sliced pie I believe.

#76 Posted by Branthog (5562 posts) -

Like I said before, I have only seen a little bit of the Endurance Run. I hope to watch it all some day. I don't know if I'll like it or not, but like a lot of things in life, I'm glad that it simply even exists whether or not it ever directly benefits or entertains me. Kind of the same way I can't bring myself to ever watch Schindler's List or Reqium for a Dream and wish I had never watched glass-ass. I may not participate. Or even necessarily like everything. But some things... I'm simply glad they exist, because they should. The Endurance Run is one of those things.
 
And, frankly, Endurance Runs are part of what make Giant Bomb so unique and sets it apart from other places.

I don't like the endurance run . Fucking hell some of you users are complete cunts . I have a opinion fucking deal with it .

um, what...?  I have no idea what you are talking about.  The endurance run is just this video game thing they do, what's wrong with that.

WTF is wrong with you?  You demand people to respect your opinion then you completely undermine other peoples opinion just because you think they're stupid.  What if I think you're a cunt does that give me the right to dismiss your opinions?  How about being more polite before you start criticizing the things people enjoy such as the endurance run.

The problem is that your opinion has no basis in reality. Saying that 70% of the forums is related to the Endurance Run is either pure hyperbole or pure ignorance. Do you even know about the popular forums feature? Hmm, let's see the Persona 4 forum is only #9 in popularity right now in game forums. And in the General Discussion and Off Topic forum, I don't see a single thread related to the ER on the first page, hardly the 70% that you quoted.
 
Also insulting others that have different opinions from yours isn't exactly helping your case either. <_<

Guess what? You're not unique. A lot of us have been following Jeff since even before that. I don't see how this is relevant at all. Other then a display pure snobbery.
 
Don't like the site, don't visit it. Simple.

You don't seem to get that our annoyance towards you has nothing to do with your opinion about the Endurance Run. No, what bothers us (or at least me, I shouldn't speak for the others) is that you would prefer a large part of the site never exist, because you don't like it. Within the first few posts you called people who like the Endurance Run "anime loving idiots", and you told us "Stop quoting the fucking endurance run ! Your worse than the family guy fanboys !". As you can see, before anyone even got a chance to post you were hostile towards, and I'm quoting you, "70%" of the forum.

Oh really and who is the decider between a valid opinion and and invalid one? The almighty God Turbomonkey perhaps?  It's called free speech those twats have the same rights as you even if it is to be a twat they are entitled to it.

lol, see this is why I prefer to just joke around. It's not worth it to try and explain things, because you seem to be unable to correctly interpret what I write.
 
I'll try one last time. I couldn't care less about your opinions, what annoys me is your judgement of the people who have a different opinion. I don't personally enjoy watching football, but I don't call football fans "football loving idiots".
 
Also, this is very entertaining, keep it up.

Instead of quoting the Endurance Run, we should all quote the FUTURE ENDURANCE RUN. The one that hasn't even been discussed yet. Perhaps even a game that hasn't been created yet!

I don't need you to tell me what Giant Bomb was like before the Endurance Run because most of us know.
 
Seriously guys, are we already at the point of, "Well I've been here longer, so my opinion deserves an entire thread"?
 
If a mod shows up, it'll be you who gets banned, kiddo. You think you're sparking intelligent conversation but any time someone tells you something you don't like, you're quick to insult them and say "NO GUYS ITS ABOUT MY ORIGINAL POINT!!! FUCK!!!!!!"

Did you really think these kind of comments would not get you flogged by the people you just slapped in the face?  And if you REALLY needed to get this off your chest, why did you make this in the forums that "didn't interest you much"?
 
I mean c'mon can't you be a tad bit more civil about this even if it bothered you?
