I thought I was watching the Olympics.

I don't know what to believe anymore. Who are the real athletes: the Olympians, or the people who control them?

Wow the judges have a electronic scoring system in the Olympics, that's fucking incredible. This isn't really topic worthy, is it?

Giant Bomb has always been a cut above the average gaming forum in maturity, but as it grew it's seemed to have gotten an influx of people who sign up with the intention of bringing over the bullshit you expect to see in places like GameSpot. If I had to put a time on it I'd say it was around the time when premium memberships were introduced, of which the anti-spam rules soon followed. And that's about when a lot of people started getting really tired of spam, not simply for the sake of being cynical, but to point out that things work differently on Giant Bomb.

Personally I'm proud of what this community has become in these past 4 years and don't want to see it become diluted. But if I came across as merely being cynical then I guess that's my bad, I should try to be a little less forward and a little more helpful.

@FLStyle Being mature and having are not contradictory things. I think his post was kind of funny, it might get locked because it doesn't "stimulate" a conversation, but we don't need to be serious and "mature" all the time.

There's a word missing, think it's "fun" but feel free to correct me, I'm guessing that's what you meant. In any case, I agree within reason, but this kind of thing where there's a brand new thread made just for a few images and a one-liner I can't get behind. What about a thread that could be stickied at the top of Off-Topic that's exclusive to thing's that people find funny like this?

I thought it was funny.

Holy crap!

#20 Posted by yoshisaur (2700 posts) -

I thought it was funny, in a relative sort of way. I think we're all smart enough to know that is the electronic score-board controller and not a man controlling people with a game-pad.

However, pic spam :/

#21 Posted by bananaz (256 posts) -

I think we're all smart enough to realize that the man with the controller is totally controlling the red guy.
