Usually when new layouts are made (such as in Youtube and Facebook), we all complain for 2 weeks and then learn to love. It's been at least 2 months and I still don't like the new Gamespot format. It has some nice aspects to it, but overall is illogically designed.
It's much slower than it used to be. Still riddled with bugs and glitches (such as posts not going through). The community activity has significantly decreased. The main website itself has an overwhelming image cluttered interface.
I know GS wanted to look more modern to appeal to advertisers, but this wasn't the way to do it. I'm probably going to be much less active on here.
It's been a good run 2005-2013 :)
