Two things brought me to Giant Bomb...
Mega64: A group I have followed for a couple of years now
Deadly Premonition: A quirky polarizing game that I found out about
I first heard of Giant Bomb when I listened to their GDC podcast with Mega64 and 5th Cell as guests! I was more excited to hear what Mega64 but I was really entertained by the Giant Bomb group as well. Of the group I had only heard of Jeff Gerstmann beforehand, and that's only because of the whole Kane and Lynch incident. After the podcast I had kind of forgotten about them. Later on I had come across a game called "Deadly Premonition", an odd game horror game that had the feel of a B-movie and a sprinkle of Twin Peaks. I was sold on the concept, but not on the gameplay. I then found out that Giant Bomb had done a whole playthrough of the game on their site and reluctantly decided to watch it. I was entertained by both playthroughs and I had gained a higher appreciation for Vinny, Brad, Jeff, and Ryan after watching through it all. It was after that I started listening to their podcast, watching their quick looks, and reading their reviews. I had become a fan of their work.
I'll be sticking around for a while and enjoying their site! I might even sign up to be a member! (Hey if it brings them over to New York I'm sold)
That's about it for now I think I've written more than I thought I would!
