After reading @bananasfoster post about the Giant Bomb crew's opinions on Adventure games today, I wanted to start a debate on a subject that came up on the latest podcast (03/29/16).
Jeff mentioned that he did not want to engage on air or social media his personal views on certain aspects on pop culture, specifically recent movie releases. There was a general consensus amongst the staff that attempts from the community to entice opinions on topics like these were useless, and that they had no desire to engage.
The problem is though, for me at least - it's what I'm here for.
I've been a premium member of Giant Bomb for 4+ years, and listener of the podcast for longer. One of the main things that Drew! me to the podcast in the first place was the interesting take the various voices had on things in the Zeitgeist. Honestly, I find the beginning and end parts of the Bombcast the most interesting and fun parts. Of course, I like hearing what the guys think of the latest releases, what they're playing etc, but I think that's what Quick Looks are for. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I love hearing them discuss things outside of games, things in the news, controversies and the like.
Obviously, they're free to discuss what whatever they want, and if I don't like it, I take my complaining ass elsewhere, right. I don't know, there was just something about the tone, a sense of 'eye rolling' that rubbed me the wrong way.
Just wanted to know what the rest of Duders thought..
