This Giant Bomb experiment has failed. A utopian community of gamers who love games without platform discrimination... we have failed to create this. Don't believe me? Check out my last blog. It's hidden because of all the negative ratings. Why? All it does is showcase awesome games coming to PS3 next year. I don't think I discriminated against anybody... my language is clean (unless you consider "sexy" offensive)... what's the deal? Oh, that's right: fanboys.
For the first couple months of Giant Bomb, this disease was nowhere to be seen. Many of us rejoiced: finally a community where simply discussing of games could ensue. Alas, it was not to be. Fanboyism, the virus which has claimed so many game forums before it (GameSpot, Gametrailers) has proven too strong for us more enthusiastic gamers. This is disgusting.
What happened? Did Giant Bomb become too popular for its own good, attracting the scum of the internet? I mean, we could argue how illogical corporate fanboyism is, but that's not the purpose of this blog. No, I'm calling YOU guys out, you people reading this. Are you part of this infection beginning to plague the only shining utopia of Giant Bomb? If you aren't, what can we do to halt its progress? I'm asking you guys. Speak out and either join my fight, or find someway to defend your actions.
