Metroid Prime. That game fucking blew my mind, and it's still one of the best, most atmospheric experiences I've ever had. To be able to explore that world for the first time all over again would be amazing.

Man, you throw dark!
Giant Bomb has always featured content that isn't necessarily about video games, that's part of the reason why I came here! Remember, for every non-video game related video you might get around here, there's probably 20 or 30 or whatever number of videos that are definitely (mostly) about video games. It's fine for a small(ish), personality-driven website like this to spread its wings from time to time.
This is really bizarre to watch now. It truly feels like a different era. Like, four or five eras removed from the current.
Hey, man. It's a GIANT Bomb. There's enough room for a vast breadth of subjects here. To an extent, I almost feel like Giant Bomb benefits from being so eclectic, and the very name Giant Bomb (not necessarily sounding video game related at all by nature) allows them that freedom. Bring on the dumb shit, I have to consume all of it.
All of it. We're the fucking 80's of the 2000's. Okay, that's stupid, but what I mean is in like 20 years everything that is popular now will be ironically popular and lampooned. People will think of dubstep like they think of 80's synth. A throwback FPS game with mad bass drops will be the analog to Far Cry Blood Dragon and its retro synth soundtrack.
God I envy that. I've been thinking about similar things in the past couple of weeks since this all started, mostly thinking back to when I was 14 and started listening to The Hotspot, which was really the first time I started paying attention to the industry itself at all. Before that, I just watched game trailers, occasionally read reviews, and if a game seemed cool, I wanted to play it. Maybe it was even a bad game, I found a way to have fun with it. I feel as if I am actively playing and enjoying video games less often because of all the inside, back stage baseball that gets ruminated on and spewed everywhere. It's pretty sad.
You know, with the rise of "Get Bopped" and "Get Bopped, Son" as the Lang-endorsed PG version of "Get Fucked, Boi" (I think he said he taught it to his kids so they could bop in a family friendly way), I wish GFB would kinda go away. Get Bopped is so much more fun to say.
RUN GFB VS RUN GBS FEUD. MAKE IT HAPPEN.
