Business Dave continues to be the freshest voice of UPF, and people can say what they want about Rorie, the man's great.

Of course the P doesn't stand for Pee. It stands for Piss.

So now they're playing the exact some coop games the original cast played years ago... Why even have this subscriber show anymore? I've been subscribed for almost 10 years now and not only isn't there anyone from the original cast in this video (except Rorie I guess), but they also rehash the games those guys used to play back then.... I really should cancel my subscription I guess, I haven't enjoyed anything they put out lately. Generation Z or whatever it is called is probably more important to business, so let's just put Ben, Dave and Jan on screen because they are popular with the kids..... I don't expect any like-minded people in this comment section as those that would agree with me have probably moved on quite a while ago. So please white knights, spare me with how great GB still is... This is just venting, very unlikely that anyone at GB even cares....

I love Giant Bomb. I love UPF. I even love this crew (Ben is S-tier; don't @ me). But I'll never understand the appeal of competitive streams. They are the most boring thing and the only thing that makes me skip a UPF entirely. I don't get what's fun hearing people go "oooooh" and "ahhhh!" for 2 hours. I like UPF for the random commentary and seeing games that fell through the cracks in GB's coverage or updates on games previously covered. I know other people like these but just voicing my opinion, in hopes these type of streams remain infrequent because they are a real bummer for someone who looks forward to UPF every week.

As someone with a Reddit account (don't ask me how I was able to get one), I can confirm that these zoomers are indeed going wild for Ben, Business Dave and Jan. Zoomers only care about one thing and it's fucking disgusting: UPF streams.

@saberrider: UPF hasn’t been good for a long long time now, or the west coast for that matter. I still pay for the subscription because of how good the east coast are.

New games are coming out soon but not yet. So to everyone that thinks UPF is getting stale give it a couple weeks for the new hotness to arrive. Also, it seems like Rorie is trying to do better which I appreciate.

The recent output has reassured me that when, one day, Jeff decides to pack it in... Giant Bomb is gonna do just fine.
On the other hand, I miss Jeff. Hurry up and get that kid grown up already! How long could it possibly take?!

@saberrider: I'm the same. I've been with the site for a long time and it has helped me get through some tough times. I think there were higher highs back in the day but also saturation is a factor. How long can you stay interested in one group of people covering one subject area?

I've been going back to the random PC game era recently. Such amazing times because the humour was effortless. Now it's like there is a schtick everyone has to follow. I hope GB stays around for a long time to come and I'll come back every now and then but I think I may pull my sub as well. It's just not for me right now.

@shrekeh: Nicer way to say it there. Hey, anyone who feels like they should cancel their sub? Do so. I don't not understand what you're saying, but just use your money somewhere else. I'm happy enough still even if I don't watch as much as I used to. To each our own. There is plenty content out there if you want it.

Rorie is MVP. Dave "that's not my font" Nillasca is following close behind.

@lonelyspacepanda I really like these recent UPFs because they have been less formulaic and more chaotic. I feel like for the past few years UPF has just been every person doing their own mini-quick look, and I find myself just putting it on a second screen while I'm doing something else. The competitive UPFs are great because they bring a level of energy that a typical UPF just doesn't have anymore. The "parents are out of the house" feel of the last few UPFs have really livened up the show. But to each their own I guess. Cheers.

10 years, the things you love will change. I'm old and miss 2008 too my man. GB (and especially UPF) has always been, with some other considerations, by-and-large the editors/cast doing what they want, and that was the whole point of this website and why I have my subscription. If you're taking this site seriously and expect them to do a certain thing, that's never been their wheelhouse. Now there's the entire Internet game-sphere for that. IMO this is a classic GB co-op hangout stream.

Don't worry there are plenty of "the world is changing and I hate it" commenters still around. :)
