Just kidding. This is probably the best game community site ever. The real topic: What is your favorite feature on the site?

I like the whole game wiki thing.

I like how super easy it is to upload pictures. The only issue is that you can't mass organise them. You have to click on each individual image you want to send to a specific gallery.

This internet deserves a better class of gaming sites...

And we're gonna give it to 'em.  You'll see.  It's all part of the plan...

Off topic and the moderators are my favourite part of this site.

It's not the best game sites ever at all, at least not yet. The site is still too young and has too many issues, but when that's all fixed the site has great potential.

Anyways my favorite is most likely the wiki editing stuff, with forum pages being a close second.

I thought the Wiki thing was a waste of time... then I started using it, adding some games that weren't in the database, and it turns out it's pretty fucking addictive, good times.

Honestly, I came here 'cuz the editors are the best. The wiki is fine and adding to it has become addicting, but I have doubts that it will rival wikipedia or wikia in game content. They just have a HUGE head start.

I'd say the games section of  Wikipedia and Wikia is pretty lacking compared to GiantBomb. And considering the massive number of users submitting edits i'd say its not long until GiantBomb becomes one of the best, or dare i say THE best gaming encyclopedia to exist online.

The Wiki feel to the site and the way users can genuinely be apart of the sites creation are the biggest attractions to me. Plus the forums are more relaxed and i've found them to be a little more fun, the OT here is well OT which is what its meant to be about.

I heard about this site a long time ago before it was officially launched, and thought "Well this might be allright" and I kind of forgot about it until the day before launch. So there really wasn't a whole lot of hype for me to begin with, and I was pleasantly surprised.

I was so going to come in here and flame you :P

But yes, its a very well put together site, I think most people only have great things to say about it so far.

Once a few little kinks get sorted out everything will be awesome!

The thing that really attracts me to this site, aside from it's sexy legs and thighs, is the community. So far everyone has been treating each other with respect and courtesy. It's a nice thing to see on a gaming forum these days.

Yeah thats right Jax, its been amazing to see the response from the gaming community, I haven't seen any flamers around yet.. although I know there probably is some but i haven't seen them yet!

Hopefully it will stay this way.

lol, nice quote.  Personally, I think that the forums need to be fleshed out a little better, but I am actually more looking forward to all of the features and just generally the writing from all the editors.

Big fan of the Facebookish elements, like the status updates when you hover over someone's avatar, and the profile walls.
