I used to be fairly active in the Gamespot forums, but after The Great Ruckus of Late '07, I found myself hating the site. I stopped caring about video game news sites until late '08 when I got a new job that allowed me to listen to music. I started getting into podcasts and found the Bombcast.
E. The GB crew can harsh on Blood Bowl, Epic Mickey, and Majora's Mask all they want; that's not going to stop me from playing those games. Now, sometimes when a game is misrepresented in the Bombcast or Quick Look (We don't know how to play Blood Bowl and it's for those tabletop nerds so it must be bad!) I'll get a little annoyed, but whatever. I'm sure I'm just as guilty of jumping into a game and letting my first impressions decide how great/terrible it is.
