Hi! Everyone who feels the same way, please comment so that Gamespot will listen!
Dear Gamespot, PLEASE bring back Video Downloads!
There are many users especially those in other countries or rural towns who do not have a stable enough internet to be able to enjoy STREAMED videos. Streamed videos NEVER play smoothly or without constant 10 second pauses every 5 seconds, or worse. It is not our choice, the option for better internet just isn't available.
For the past TEN years i have enjoyed Gaming Video Downloads on Gamespot!
We download videos so that we can enjoy the FULL video in one go, after waiting an hour or so for the download to complete. We also enjoy bringing along those videos on our laptops or smartphones to show to our friends while hanging out (Cellular Data Service is also Terrible here). I have also enjoyed showing many Gaming videos to my young students, who love gaming, some of whom DO NOT EVEN HAVE INTERNET ACCESS IN THEIR HOMES. It's always a joyful riot to discuss the coolest games with those young ones.
Gamespot has been my favourite gaming site for 10 years, it is the site i refer to all my friends when they have gaming related questions. Don't let the inactivity of my account fool you, i might rarely post but i visit the site almost everyday/week. Please don't let me down now.
P.S. At least change to Progressive streaming, that way the videos can be loaded whole. Right now videos load in bits and pieces.
