I used to frequent the site so much more, now the usability of it sucks so much I barely come here, I basically come to check this thread and see if there are any meaningful improvements to the site.

The new design was a major step backwards in my opinion.

Seriously the lack of acknowledgement about most of the issues, is really disheartening the site is a mess, and wayyyyy worse than the last version. honestly I can't think of one thing that is better.

To have to scroll 3 whole pages to get to the actual (and uglyyyyyy when only one item) links, on my 4k 65 inch tv is pretty ridiculous.

The original Giant Bomb site from 2008 was a much more user friendly and visually attractive:

And also that Dan thumbnail with only Dan and article as mentioned above gave me a heart attack. I thought for sure it was a post in memorial of him. Not cool at all :(

It really bummed me out to hear on UPF that they are not doing any releases or fixes till the new year. (besides backend CMS stuff) to release such an unusable site that has pages and pages of feedback in this thread and then just ignore us is really disheartening.

Especially when most people commenting are premium subscribers...

@rorie: I know its not really your call or not but I would feel that the default for premium users should be the internal ad free player?

decent list here is mine:

Dan's Games Of The Year 2018

1. Red Dead Redemption 2
This game is a masterpiece the amount of polish and variety is unparalleled, it is not perfect the controls can be frustrating and some of the decisions are questionable. But even though it is one of the most awesomely realized worlds in a game ever and so beautiful.
2. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
I can't believe how good this JRPG is, so beautiful, so fun. Just can't recommend it enough.
3. Tetris Effect
Can you make a better Tetris game, oh yeah you can this is it, I haven't had such a good time playing Tetris in forever.
4. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
Another incredibly beautiful and fun JRPG the changes from the first game are plenty and it has a cool city building feature, the combat changes are fresh and enjoyable and its like playing a anime.
5. The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories
Swery continues to make incredible games, this game is so powerful and one of the greatest stories with a very underrepresented population getting the spotlight and the struggles they go through. Love it so much.
6. Marvel's Spider-Man
Insomniac can make beautiful games, and fun ones. The city is beautiful and the traversal is so good.
7. God of War
Wow this sorta shocked me how good it was, Corey Balrog really made a powerful game, and god damn is it beautiful.
8. Life Is Strange 2
Only one episode has come out so far for this but boy is it good, Dontnot has quickly become on of my favourite studios and in the fallout of telatale games its great to see someone carrying on the adventure game genre with polish and good tech!
9. Donut County
So fun, and some of the best writing I have ever seen in a game. You owe it to yourself to play this game!
10. Detroit: Become Human
The story may have some struggling points and david cage may not have to the chops to pull off his grand vision for this game, but the story does have some strong points and it is such a beautiful game. Stunning at times.
