HI All,

Why is the new giant bomb website a rip off of polygon?

While I agree that the 3 pane design at the top is similar, everything below that doesn't really look the same. Besides, the new design was locked in before Polygon even launched.

Web designer and developer here @adbrown You clearly do not understand modern web design and responsive design. Certain factors, design approaches are considered and considering type of content I could basically tell you Polygon is a rip off of 10 other sites without even thinking about it.

Modern web trends.

That's pretty much all the explanation you need for any similarities you might find. Polygon and this site were in development at the same time, nobody was ripped-off.
