I stayed in System Wars not General Game Discussion.

well I did say 'quality' in relation to GGD. My point still stands.  LOL

Oh god that's funny, I had forgotten about the GameSpot blogs. I had a pretty active one, and over all pretty receptive comments, except for one woman. She always found a reason to shit on everything I wrote. It was not quite typical trolling, but she always found a way to sound so condescending and every response she wrote.

Was that the GamingQueen? I remember her and one other girl whom I can't remember the name of.

Yeah I think it was Gaming Queen. I don't remember too many of those Gamespot user handles anymore, but that one really does stick out now that I think about it. At any rate she was an insufferable and irritating cunt.

LOL

She used to annoy the hell out of me. She named herself perfectly though, because she was a fucking DRAMA queen. Always making a huge deal out of nothing just to argue for the hell of it.

I don't really remember her.

I recently went back to Gamespot and a lot of people I knew back then are still there.

Godmode used to like me until I busted his balls one day...then he got his panties in a bunch and never spoke to me again.

I think we can all acknowledge that the whole place started to go downhill the moment GS switched servers for their forums some 20 years ago. Nothing sparks intelligent discussion like having to wait 2 minutes for your post to show up and having most members go by their real name.

Some unions were good enough that however great GGD may have been before they existed, the sacrifice was worth it. (I don't think I posted on GS before the existence of unions).

Also blogs, the other good part. Pretty sure I only knew anyone here through blogs, especially GG's and Dvader's.

I started in Gamespot in 2005 so it was after Unions and Blogs were a thing.

The reason I decided to leave Gamespot was the redesign in 2013/2014. I did go back to Gamespot last month but it is basically dead, most of the people that posted were gone or banned since the redesign they also got soft on some of the rules but other things made it easier to get banned.

But there are still about 20 people I recognized still posting on Gamespot.

I still lurk.  But I am a gamer in a very prolonged and possibly permanent hiatus so don't have much to add to any of the discussions.  Between full-time work and part-time djing there is simply no time for gaming.  I do like it when I see you guys really excited about particular games though and I start to get tempted but I just know it would be pointless.  I would only be adding more games which would stay shrinkwrapped and gather dust on my already full shelves.  No point.

But Vader is right! Fuck Gertsmann the fat fuck forever for 8.8ing the greatest game of all time.  Not forgiven in ten years ... not ever.  People will piss on his grave for that.

Nah ... Not tempted.  Splat 1 still shrink-wrapped and probably always will be.
