The personality bit I just don't get. I can understand not putting a ton of effort into keeping the personality of the old design, but relying on the content to relay 100% of Giant Bomb's personality to the end user just doesn't work when the site looks like an unmodified template. Not trying to be a dick, but 100% flat design hasn't been a recommended design avenue since 2014 as it's been replaced by 'flat 2.0'.

Regarding feedback for actual feature requests that would significantly improve my usability of the site, I still think an actual 'watch list' that I curate/add videos to myself is the thing I'd like the most. 'Watching' shows is borderline useless to me, as someone who would visit the site every day prior to the redesign.

I've pretty much concluded that at this point my big issues with the design probably aren't going to be fixed. Everything is still too big, the carousels are awkward to use on desktop, there's a weird use of empty space, and everything just feels a bit janky.

Sometimes the play button on a page doesn't work until 15-20 seconds after I've landed on a page, and the 'play next video' functionality will at times result in the audio of 2 videos playing at once.

These fullscreen graphic overlays are getting really annoying.

Dan not being in The Rock commentary is honestly just stupid. Take a week off, switch movies, etc. If there's one movie that Dan should absolutely be in on it's that. Incredibly puzzling decision.
