You are free to suggest how you would like Giantbomb to be, but this post got them to update (or rather, unpin) the featured content, which I think is the right step.
I don't personally care about how much news GB has, but rather, I care when there are lack of attentions to news section. But let me be honest here, I stumble into it. So perhaps a dedicated `news` tab on navigation isn't necessary at this point.
1) don't give player a choice when there isn't one: can you choose to not pay respect? no, then guide player through this instead of letting them do it.
2) Advanced Warfare only have a few hours of gameplay anyway, so I don't see why they must try to build emotional moments in the campaign, are players looking forward to these scenes? no, then maybe try to build something else.
