I remember everything about this site, considering the fact that I've been here since the beginning (well, pretty close, July 2008 was when I joined) and I remember some of the funny trolls that have joined this site (governmentcheese, bucketdeAth, the ripoff user, not you BucketDeth, you rock dude) and some of the epic threads they made (there are too many to list, some of them I made myself, which I am still proud of myself for to this day). But I think the worst phase this site went through was it's "Wii Defense Force" phase where you were completely unallowed to say anything negative about the Wii or you were trolled to no end, I am so glad that shit is done. My personal favorite phase GiantBomb had though was probably early 2009, that's when everyone started joining, and some of my all time favorite threads were made.
 
I guess you could call this a Giant Bomb nostalgia thread.

The phase we're going through right now with quest spammers is pretty bad, as was that supposed "civil war" a couple months back. Wow, that was so stupid. Everything else has been peachy. Even though I've only been under this account for 6 months or so, I've been stalking the site ever since the blog started up way back in ye olde March 2008.

That Civil War was dumb most of the people who threatened to leave didn't, I don't even know what it was about.

I still don't really get it.  Exactly what happened?  All I know is everything about that seemed to have blown over the course of me not having wifi for a day.

That governmentcheese phase or whatever that users name is. 
Everyone was so ready to lick his balls all the time and it made us normal people sick enough to puke all over our keyboards.

I sort of miss the Levio era. At the time it was annoying, but now I just miss him. Right now I hate just having a specific user around, and if a mod wants to ban them for me then I'll give you that name! Yup.

I'm relatively new to the forums, but have been coming to the site since early to mid 2009.  I've noticed a lot of Gamespot transplants here. 
 
I feel like they used to post more videos of them bullshitting around, which I liked.

The beginning of GB was the best. We were had some pretty fun trolls, the kind you like to keep around. Now its the worse, with quest spammers, poll, youtube, and picture spam, and people who walk into topics and post some stupid shit without reading any of the topic.

Did Biff create that mini-meme, or did he just Google it? I can't really remember.

I think this remains one of my fondest memories of the site. God, what a drama queen. 
 
And least favorite, I guess.. yeah quest spamming I guess, but hey it's slowed a bit, less blogs, more people trying to get first posts on a video.  Oh also the whole Wii stuff was a little silly, though the "I WAS WRONG" bit gave me a good chuckle. Good on the people who fulfilled their end.

I feel like we don't have a really good troll anymore that we could all unite to hate together. Someone needs to step up.

Naked Cartoon Pussy is by far my favorite.
 
All this spamming going on and no ads (scares me) is my least favorite.

If I remember correctly, someone posted a blog complaining about how the staff ignores the community and doesn't care about them, then apparently, from that blog post, two sides were formed. The side that supported the community and the side that didn't really care. There was some stuff about the Facebook integration in there too, I think. Dave even got involved at one point. Then a bunch of people posted Endogene-like blogs about leaving the site forever and then were back on the site within 24 hours. And yeah, it was as stupid as it sounds.

A couple threads that I missed out on (I wasn't an active poster at the time) but I looked back on fondly were the threads where one guy pretended to be characters from the cartoon Doug, and the other was the infamous thread where MsChivos (or whatever her name was) posted pics from her modeling portfolio and Biff proceeded to photoshop Jeff's head on most of the pictures. Offensive and mean? Yes. Funny as hell? You betcha.

Is it? I'm pretty sure if you said anything about the Wii right now you would still get an army of delusionals and trolls rushing to its defense.

I find the idea that internet forums can have 'events' to be mildly disturbing. I mean, sure, that whole 'is brad fat' thing was kind of a big deal for like, a weekend (and I think the hilarious responses in defense of brad are what made these forums seem legit to me), and we get some great in-jokes out of people like BiffMcBlumpkin and governmentcheese, but i dunno if we can say that we have real phases around here. Shit happens, we spew all kinds of crap over it, and then we move on.

dont get why people would make fun of the wii. i mean i know it has its share of problems but it also has its share of great games that arent out on any other platform. whatever thats not what this threads about. my favorite giant bomb phase was the very beginning when the first people created pages for games that were just announced even before the staff could. seriously thats just awesome.

Honestly, I can't wait until SmugDarkLoser comes back. Then the second era of the GB forums will unfold. I can see it in my coffee, so it must be true.

I don't mind quests; I don't do them, I don't have the time, although I appreciate stumbling on them by mistake.  
I just hope it doesn't become an integral part of the giantbomb experience, anyway the crew is smart and they know what they are doing. 
 
The best phase on the other hand is when quick looks first started (the best feature on any video gaming site imo), and when they merged with my other heroes, ex-PCG and ex-MAXPC crew Norm and Will.

Like the Phoenix, he will rise from the ashes and usher in a new era of Giant Bomb insanity. 
 
And then he and Dr_Cash will fight for all souls in the final battle with Giant Bomb as their battleground.  The truly righteous will have already ascended to heaven by that point, of course.
