I love Giant Bomb, i really do.
i started watching GB back in 2013, didn't really know anything about this site before that other than Totalbiscuit (may he Rest in Peace) referenced that Giant Bomb was a big inspiration for him.
two years later, i was a proud Premium member of this community. Watched All of the Mario Party Party, Kerbal Space Program, Game Tape, Demo Derby and obviously Playdates and UPF to only name a few. Best way to spend my money, premium content was awesome.
Today, not so much. I don't want to be Gatekeeping but, right now i don't know why someone would join the premium membership...
Me, personally, will continue to pay the premium, with no discount, because i want to support what i love. Looking at the Premium section of the video pages, it seems that UPF is the only thing people will buy into. Run for the hills was Great, but now it seems that the second season won't be premium. I'm not counting the Bombcast for the premium obviously.
i'm left here wondering, what is happening ? don't get me wrong, I loooove Arcade Pit, Bak 2 Skool and The Very Online Show (not a fan of albummer though, what a bummer). But all of theses are now available for all. So my question : other than me who clearly will pay for premium because i want you guys to keep doing awesome content, what is the incentive for someone new to consider buying into Premium ? I feel like, go watch previous shows, while being true that those are still really good today, isn't a good way to bring people in.
