Now that I think about it, I think it was 1999 when I started following Gamespot regularly. Unfortunately, those days are over now.
Who thought it was a good idea to do this? It's like they all got together in a room and the boss said "okay, so I know we have this very useful, landmark site with nearly two decades of gaming history but I think it's time we take a huge shit on the whole thing. What would be the best way to go about doing that?!"
So much of what made this site great is gone. Why the fuck would they delete old reviews? Why would anyone think that was a good idea?!! It's so hopelessly moronic that I'm worried if I think about it too much longer I'll end up being as stupid as the "engineers" who thought this travesty was an improvement.
What's truly amazing about it, though, is that we're now three months out from the launch and yet nobody at Gamespot with any clout has pulled their head out of their ass long enough to realize this was a mistake?!!
