Don't know if they will be reading this, but I just wanted to say thanks to Vinny, Brad and Alex. Together they not only entertained me, but also always managed to cheer me up when I was having a dark day. And also inspired me to be a better person in life. Thanks for everything in the past 10+ years, and whatever you guys are going to do next, I hope it brings you joy!

Dan became one of my favorite members of the crew, the insane, crazy shit he came up with will be very missed, it was my favorite content on this site. But I am happy for him that he has found a new career path that excites him, and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors!

Thanks for all the laughs you brought me in these years Dan! Don't be a stranger to the site and hop back in from time to time :)

@liquiddragon: Totally agree. The shade being piled on in here right now is pretty mind blowing considering the content itself is only half over and it very much seems to be that they are trying to get a little bit of everything this year with the format change. It's one thing to respond to the content with some thoughts but the pile on here missing some of the older things like Hitsmas etc pretty much ignores the fact that GOTY has ever evolved and changed.

The crew has earned the right to experiment with different ideas, love it or hate it but kinda y'know let them do them? Also how anyone can think the format change is bad after witnessing the genius and hilarity that was Giant Bomb Feud! is beyond me. You must be coming to this site for some validation or some shit but for some peak ass whole crew being whole crew and whole bit landing that is up there with some of the sites best sketches tbh.

As for thoughts on everything this year, I do very much like the short videos that each crew gets to present. It allows them to more creatively get into the games they are presenting. They kind of feel like some of a replacement to the goofy awards themselves, although those could still be coming in the final GOTY deliberations as well. But putting more of a personality spin on the games being highlighted allows it to exist alongside the individual top 10 lists and not feel overly samey.


The crew are obviously allowed to experiment, but that makes it even more important to voice our opinions on it. Else they will not know if their experiment worked or not. Judging from the overall opinion, this year has been a misfire.

Honestly at this point I feel this goty week, that used to be a highlight for me for giant bomb content, is weaker than the average normal content week. It's not just the podcast format either, the lack of cross coast content is very disappointing.

I am sure there are things that happened behind the scene that created this lack of content and hopefully Jeff will talk about it at some point.

They seem to REALLY like the game so I don't think there is any chance they will stop doing them.

@rorie: no problem, I can't imagine how hard it is to manage a complete community with so little staff! Thanks for the extra month and keep up the good work!

Hey everybody,

I signed up for a premium membership last week on Thursday (31 October) using the paypal store and an old pax code i found on the forums. However, my premium membership is not activated yet. I know they have to manually activate the memberships and that can take some time, so i was wondering how long i should wait before contacting rorie/customer support. Thanks in advance!
