I'm disturbed by the fact that it seems like these ex-Whiskey Media guys are winning over people who have had more to do with Giant Bomb (ie, Johnny V and Brad Muir).

Kinda my position. I think Brad Muir is more of a staple to coming from outside and adding something special to GB specifically than ex-WM guys.

I just don't associate Rorie with GB particularly. He was around a lot in terms of group WM stuff and he's great but I think Paul has added more to my GB experience over the years.

Oh dear Lord, choosing between Jeff Green and Rich Gallup ..... ...... ahhhhh.

I felt I was leaning towards Rich Gallup for all that he was at Gamespot and yet that Jeff Green had seemed to make more of an impression during the time at Giant Bomb, but by looking at the hard facts Rich has probably been on things as much as Jeff so I'm going to let Rich win this. I do love me some Jeff Green though and feel he slots really well in with the GB crew. Super tough one.

Picking between Kasavin and Drake was like committing a war crime.

Word. I really love Greg but I feel Mr John Drake has been a more constantly present stalwart of the GB experience over the years and whenever he turns up he always brings the flair, dancing and cheeky/sinister smirk that endear him so.

I don't care to know anything about IGN or post-Giant Bomb GameSpot, so reduce the scope to Bomb Crew, Polygon.com's formation, and RPS and I'd be very, very interested.

This probably describes my own interests too. Regarding GB though, I wonder if I actually know most of what there is to know already given there general transparency about things over the years. I do like a well-produced documentary though.

This reasoning has gone through my mind before and I completely agree. It also explains as you elude to in the final part of this blog why sequels aren't as negative a phenomenon as they might otherwise be. For those games that push the boat out in delivering something quite new (though probably with many still very recognisable elements from other games) it often doesn't work out so well on the first try, but these are all things that can be much better honed on later attempts, especially because your design pipeline and a lot of the tools have already been created by this point. Assassin's Creed is a good example of this.

It gladdens me to see developers finally taking notice of Seal's advice from his hit single/proto-GDC talk - Crazy. It saddens me it took so long though.

What are you referring too? I'm intrigued. The only famous/renowned GDC talk which encouraged developers to plow a very different path that I've so far heard mentioned is Chris Crawford's 'Dragon' speech.
