    I used to be a fan of jeff G. I am one of those who followed him to giant-bomb. And, thats where I started not to like this guy's philosophy on games. What makes a good game; whats cool and whats not. I started getting into gamespot around 2001. Jeff, Alex, and the rest of the old schools were there. PS2 was at an all time high. All the games were (to me) rated pretty fairly. That is until this Genre came around, the PS3 was highly scrutinized (because of the price) and the games average score was like a 7. Then all of the Xbox360 games were getting like 8.5 and 9s, when previously the year before they were getting like 6 and 7s. Since then I've been voicing my opinion against gamespot. That is when I followed Jeff to giant bomb only to find out that was the founder of PS3 bashing. I had thought that it was gamespot that had started that trend; taking money from M$ to say the games like tools of destructions was a 7.5. But, it was infact Jeff that was responsible for all this.

 
Giant bomb is exactly its name: a nuke bomb. The podcasts are terrible, talking about all kind of crazy stuff. Getting off topic every other subject. The site is a mess. The scoring system is all jacked up. I finally had to be honest with myself and say these guys are Xbox fans and they will continue to bash Sony no matter how good their games are. gamespot is getting better, only because the Xbox hasn't really came out with any games. But giant-bomb is a horrible site. I knew that they were going down hill when they started charging to listen to their horrid podcast, rationalizing it saying, "It cost you what you would pay for a gallon of gas every month". That was the end of it for me. I stop going to the site. 
  
So people like this exist. Or is this guy a troll? This was posted on a recent  gamespot feature. Look at that last line. I remember there was a scare when Whiskey said they wanted to allow subscribers to have the full podcast while the rest of us would have to wait for each part, but they backpedaled on that real quick after the huge uproar.   
 
Edit: Ooooh there's more:  

I thought the site would just die slowly and they would go on to do other things. But, they have decided to take one last bat at it and go out with a bang. Word of advice, bashing PS3 game will never give you the audience that need to be successful. Too many loyal Sony fans want to hear the truth about the new games that are coming out. Not your take on why you don't like this or that. Sony is here to stay; I thought they would have learned that from the PS1 and 2. But, trying to usher M$ as the dominate system is a mistake and will continue to cost you fans Jeff. BTW, MAN has he put on wieght. Word of advice STOP SETTING UP THE BAR!!!! LOL!

"Getting off topic" Was the bombcast ever on topic? I mean, they were talking about energy drinks from the start.

Well, everyone is bias in some regard, but GB isn't in the way that guy puts it. They don't rate one platform over another, but people do have games/genre they like more than others. Personally, i think this is a good thing, since it means that a fighting game review from Jeff is going to be more detailed/passionate than if it was written by... lets say Ryan.

From the sounds of it, the poster just wants others to agree with him in order to justify his own personal beliefs (which is rather common (the need to have other people agree with you, not the hate for GB))

I like how you use it as a casual insult. I haven't heard it a while either and I'm kind of disappointed in myself for knowing what it is.

But yeah, the guy's a troll.

You mean a forum kid said something? Stop the presses. Go read the GB threads on "a popular internet gaming forum" if you want to see real histrionics.

The really shameful thing is that this sort of thread is exactly the kind of thing the Giant Bomb community hates. Do we not hold ourselves to higher standards?

I don't actually think real people are on the Gamespot forums or even the staff because most of the content being pumped out is so cold and mechanical, absolutely zero personalty whatsoever. This isn't a dude, it's a robot with a poor auto-correct feature.

I don't know why Micro$oft would pay for anti-Playstation sentiments to be made. It's not like they're Microsoft or anything.
