I agree that GB hasn't been nearly as full of the same spunk and spirit it once had. But at the same time I have changed a lot too. It used to be that I would watch every single quicklook, catch every bombcast (still do this... I will never give up my bombcast!). But now I just don't have the time. I wish I could give some actual input as to what I think has really changed. Sometimes I think it was the fact that the guys had their backs against the ropes and that they were independent dudes who were challenging the system - and winning. But they weren't just doing their own thing - it was genuinely fun and interesting. Now it feels like everyone just kind of has resided into the routine of a job. I mean yeah these guys get to play games for a living and discuss those games... but even that can become taxing and tiresome over many years. In short, I would love to take up the throne of these worn and weathered heroes. Where do I sign, Jeff? I'm ready to be put to work!
