Giant Bomb. Is. Awesome.

I've spent years on the internet, not really going to any specific gaming website. There's really never been one for me. It's always too "Herp derp super serious herp derp". I've never really found a fun one to be on. They are all too serious with little to no awesome features. This one has two that stand out: The infinite and expanding database of just about everything related to video games, and the Quick Looks. It's like Wikipedia had a baby with Raptor Zombie Mecha Jesus. You don't get more awesome than that.
 
The Quick Looks are often more hilarious than anything else I've seen, and also show me stuff about games that I would definitely want to know. The most important part about these QL's, is they are played by real gamers. Not "Herp derp benefit of the doubt". If it sucks, they're going to be like "Yeah, this game sucks". It's not an official statement by the GiantBomb review team or whatnot, but it's like a watercooler conversation.
 
Herp 1: "Hey Joe, does that game suck?"
Derp 1: "Yeah, this game sucks".
 
It's a nice change of pace that sets this place apart from the other sites out there. And while I'm not anyone special, it's really nice to find a site that's right for me and appreciate it. Especially with it's database and quests for level progression. What is this, a website or an RPG? GiantBomb crossed the streams, and it is glorious.
 
That's about it for this blog. Wouldn't you know it, my first blog is me, confessing my love for GiantBomb, and is actually quite pointless. But oh well. I appreciate GB and all they do!

Thank you, GiantBomb, for being awesome and right for me.

Welcome to the club.

Well it is a charmingly garrulous site.

Welcome.

Oh and now go and watch every single episode of the Endurance Runs, and TANG, and all the QLs, and listen to probably all the bombcasts.

@N7: welcome! if you havent done so, go back and check out some of the really early videos and bombcasts. 
Posted by N7
@dudeglove: 
I probably will, sometime or other. I usually quit watching QLs for a week or two so they can add more, then I watch like three or four a day. I'm going to check out some older ones later on, when it's not like 5 AM and I'm not crazy tired.
 
Although, I did look around at some Endurance Runs and I'm not really sure what they are. I assume it's them playing the games, but the games I saw there didn't really look that interesting, so I skipped. But I definitely will sometime soon. GiantBomb is my mistress, and I'm going to explore her soon enough.
 
Kay, that just sounded creepy. Disregard that.

I'll admit, I skipped over the Persona 4 Endurance Run, but I did end up watching both viewpoints of the Deadly Premonition one. If I were you, I'd start with the Brad and Ryan stream. Give it a couple episodes, see if it's your flavour, then choose from there. 
 
And welcome to the flipside!  Glad to know you've been lurking, now you've signed up. Next step is for you to become a member of course so you can get that awesome shirt!

@Matthew: Indeed! I'm currently looking for a job, and as soon as I get the money, you better believe I'll be signing up for the big boy membership.
 
Also, thanks for all the tips guys. I'm going to watch that 50 Cent review now... I can already tell that it's going to be the best thing ever.

That may be true, but these guys are truly awful at playing games, especially Brad. That's usually the main source of humour; their ineptitude is baffling. Jeff isn't funny.

Bringing back old threads, niiice

Was confused there for a minute why the OP had over 1000 posts and was talking as if he was brand new

@nail1080: It's cool cause the OP made a similar blog last week.
