Are you thinking about my erect penis?

"  The reviews here seem honest, but with a nice touch of tounge in cheek. Nearly all of them aren't as technical or lengthy as they were on Gamespot, but that's because GS is careful about making a good image for itself and CNET on a professional level. Giant Bomb feels more like a site created by easy-going, video-game loving dudes. It's pretty much the site everyone wanted, but knew could never fly in a corporate environment. This site isn't here to tell you all the dry, shallow video games news that trickles through the media. This place is all about community along with an occational review telling you how fun a game is instead of spelling out in thesaurus-like detail why it's good or bad. This site isn't here to hold every company, game, or developer under a microscope to queeze out news in the name of media content. This site is here to celebrate video games and the people that play them. Hail Giant Bomb.

Kotaku does what you said, except far better. It has a constant stream of objective news, with a little humor and the same tongue in cheek quips you appreciate on GB. At least in my opinion.

This is not a bait thread, by any means. More of a thread by a cynic and a vehement believer of the "you should not waste your time" ideology. I should trademark that name.

What's the point of the Giant Bomb editors? What we have is a group of sophomoric, arrogant reviewers, with fewer credentials than other sites, inferior writing skills, and far less content. Jeff Gerstmann, even after over a decade in gaming journalism, can't articulate why exactly he didn't enjoy SCIV, or, to clarify, didn't give the gasme higher than 3/5. His reasons were: boobs were too big, didn't like Yoda, didn't feel right. What is even more perplexing is that he said that the core gameplay was great. His review was complete and utter nonsense. Ask me to do so 10 years ago, when I was in third grade, and I could create a far superior critical analysis than that farce of a review.

Literally, they take weeks to publish maybe 3 or 4 reviews. It's absolutely absurd.  I do realize, however, that testing out energy drinks is an incredibly strenuous task that ought to occupy any group of grown men's time. Right.

What's the point of the Giant Bomb Wiki? What satisfaction does one reap from copying and pasting existing pages, slightly changing the wording of what they just attached to their clipboard? Here we have a system of "spacepoints," not redeemable for anything, being given for doing grunt work for a group of lackadaisical and staggeringly indolent men. What fun does one receive from wasting away at their precious, short lives (for they're probably Dorito-eating slobs to even preoccupy themselves with such rot in the first place) from getting imaginary points in a completely capricious system? There are people with hundreds of thousands of such points, and you can google "facepalm" for my reaction to these failures. Don't even get me started with those with thousands of posts only a month after this cataclysmic failure of a site launched.

This is not a bait, and please don't lock this thread. I am for the bettering of each and every member on this site. It's not too late to start.

Don't want to get into a religious tirade, so I'll accept that answer.
"
I believe in God. But, I understand whatever it is you believe. So, I accept your answer."
I don't disbelieve in the existence of a divine being, but I don't necessarily believe it., But what I am completely opposed to is the mindwashing that all modern religions practice. Which is why I'm anti-theistic, but agnostic in belief.
