Apologies if this has been voiced elsewhere, did a quick search and didn't find anything.
I love GB but it kinda bums me out that this year's GOTY awards have no silly scripted videos to go along with them. I've been chewing through the podcasts like I do every year before I start reading the articles or watching the awards videos, so I'm only getting around now to watching the first couple videos. It was honestly pretty disappointing to find out the videos this year are just the podcast deliberations. No funny themed videos to announce the winners, no sitdown to play the winning game for 20 or 30 minutes afterward, just "hey here's that discussion from the podcast."
I know there's other videos on the site this year, like Hitsmas and Rock Band and whatnot, and I'm excited to get to those when I have time, but again, it's a little disappointing to me that GB's output in the last three or four years has been entirely just "let's sit on the couch and do an unedited stream for a couple hours." What happened to Vinny and Drew's travelogues? Vinny's short-lived idea for briefly mentioning the games they've been playing but don't have time to quick look? Dan and Jeff's hilarious and stupid rollercoaster ride? I know all that stuff takes a lot of time and effort, but isn't that the point of having a much larger staff now and two offices?
I'm not trying to shit on GB here or anything like that. I just miss some of those older, more tightly produced videos. They were always super fun.
