Poll: How many of you immediately switched to black theme (663 votes)

The white light was burning my eyes, It had to go. BLACK ALL THE WAY! 85%
White, is alright(rhymes) 11%
colour does not matter (for this option you have to be ok with accepting the proper spelling of colour, lulz) 4%

I got to the site and as soon as I saw the white backround, it was like I was possessed. I realized my reaction was pretty crazy so I wanted to know how others felt.

Most sites with a white background hurt my eyes after about 10-15 minutes, black all the way.

Yes I switched as soon as I saw the white. Not only does it hurt my eyes but I'm to used to the black theme from the old site.

I did but then switched back and forth a bunch between the two. I'm sure i'll settle for black though.

Black supremacy.

EDIT: Plus, a black background is more power efficient.

I don't mind the white all that much. I just think of GB as a black-themed site and wanted to keep it that way. It looks beautiful both ways.

I didn't notice it until I saw this thread. I think it looks pretty snazzy in white so I'll stick with that color for now.

Started browsing the new site at around 6am, white was killing me. Black feels like a friendly eye-hug.

When youtube had the dimmer for earthday, and then turned it off after, I was like WHY!!! I would have used the shit out of that button. Ultimately I solved that problem with a custom google app thing for chrome, to bad I cant do that to the rest of the internet.

People who like the white should have their brains checked, as it goes against all this is good in the world.

Switched immediately after I got onto the site, but I'm going to give White another try. Let's see how long it lasts for.

The white theme isn't bad like the previous one was, but I still prefer black.

I had forgotten to change it until I saw this. I knew there was a reason why the site didn't look right.

At first everything seemed ok on the main page, but then I scrolled down... Had me scrambling for the dark theme -button.

Ok, maybe a little exaggerated, but you get my point, dark all the way.

Back to black, a white theme is too much for me. I liked the light switch button Game Informer uses on their site for that stuff. It would have been cool if GB added a dimmer switch. Then a picture of Vinny would pop up and ask, "Who turned off the lights?"

The fact that I had a headache when I first got on earlier made me notice how astoundingly bright white backgrounds are. I switched immediately.

I can hardly believe it defaulted to the white theme. Once I switched back to the black theme, I felt so much better.

At the top right of almost any page on Giant Bomb there is your icon, your name, your inbox status and two 'A's. One A is black on a white background. This A is not your friend. Accept no candy from him. Do not return his calls. For the love of all that is good and sacred on this earth, do not invite him into your home.

The other A is a white A on a black background. He will protect you from his evil Bizarro-world counterpart. Embrace him. (Or you know, click on him, same thing.)

When GB finally loaded for the first time, the first thing I clicked was the black version of the site.

My eyes, they can't take the brightness.

It's weird. On the preious version, I loved the white theme. White theme all the way. But now I'm using the black theme. The new white theme is a little too blinding.

To think that I'll either have to login or click that "black" button every time I access this website from a public computer is a bit annoying.

The white theme is too bright for me so immediately back to black.

Pretty much immediately. As soon as I loaded the page, I saw the theme button in the upper right corner, I scrolled down to see how the white looked, then switched it to dark and scrolled down to see how that looked. It's going to stay dark forever now.
