This is probably not a bug and I'm also not entirely sure how much Giant Bomb can do about this but I've noticed that Twitch clips autoplay on Giant Bomb. I think we can all agree that videos which start playing as soon as a page loads are awful and should be stopped whenever possible so I'm wondering if there is anything we can do to stop that on our end.

When you're embedding the twitch video, are you able to append the parameter autoplay=false at the end of the url? Unfortunately, Twitch has autoplay set to true by default.

We'll have to look into auto-appending the param in the future. I'll open a ticket for it.

I was searching for another topic, and this video autoplayed and confused the heck out of me. So yeah, it'd be nice if that was disabled by default. :p

Better late than never. User embedded twitch streams will never autoplay in the forums.
