It appears people over at Gamespot have already begun calling Giantbomb Gamespot 2.


Thoughts?

If it really is, at least it doesn't have GS's bad bits.

It's more GameSpot 2.0


Giant Bomb is really a totally different experience than Gamespot though. I'm loving it so far!

i feel like the OT forum is becoming GS2.0

**awaits crazy religious fanatics to start making threads!**

the main site on the otherhand is great, its awesome to be able to talk to other people about characters, companies etc...

The only thing gamespot about this place is the fact that the majority of these members are from GS. It's a FARRRRR better site. Less cheesy graphics and more fat content.

God damnit, I hated the gamespot/gameFAQ's boards.

Oh well, I'll still post here.

Hopefully there are enough non-gamespotters to give this a fresh feel.

It's nothing like it. The only thing that hails from GameSpot is the editors, which isn't a bad thing. The site is completely different :)

Nah, GS will carry on going just fine. Just a lot of people will be on here as well as there. But so far, I'm liking the vibe of GB. 'So far' being the key words.

I tend to favor reviewers that think like I do, because those reviews will be the best for me. After browsing through this site's review list, I can honestly say that I am in tune with these reviewers much more than the current Gamespot stock of tired old journalists.
So far Giant Bomb seems like the laid back yet content-packed version of Gamespot I have been craving ever since "the exodus of editors."

I'm with you on that. The minute this place starts to feel like Gamespot (well, Gamespot over the last year or so), I'm fucking gone.

I would set the sites apart, not just for obvious reasons, but for everyone's sake, since this is a new website, with a new idea and they should have the liberty to make a new name for themselves.

You have most of the Gamespot community coming here, so it's probably why it feels that way.

But this place feels a lot more roomy if you get what I'm saying. No annoying bugs (so far), more freedom, and most notably so far, no religion threads:).

I like the atmosphere of Giant Bomb. There aren't corporate cnet.com assholes who don't want bad reviews of a game they advertised.

Low blow but allowed in this match lol. Giantbomb is so much more than a simple gaming website...it's a culture man...get with or get left behind...yeah that about sums it up.
