Uh, I've been coming to videogames.com since 1998. You can always create a new account. The people that left, left. Good for them! A lot of people have been employed and have left the site since it's inception. Sorry I don't feel bad for people that made a paycheck at GameSpot and didn't meet CBSi's standards or left for greener pastures. They own the site. They can do whatever they want with it. Don't like a feature? Don't read the stupid thing. Giantbomb was supposed to kill GameSpot. It didn't! It got BOUGHT by CBSi and is languishing that Jeff has to post all those Jar videos to try to get subs. I'm never going to leave the site until the lights go out for good. They won't. If GameSpot gets shut down it will be because of sub-par content and not enough participation from the community.
Like Reddit for it's gaming content, then go there. Like IGN64 for it's gaming content, then go there. They aren't even a dedicated gaming site anymore. With Ryan MacDonald leaving the old guard is gone from this site. This site can't be stuck in the past to move forward. Hell goto any other site if you want... NeoGAF or whatever they are called. I don't care. GameSpot is going to continue on whether you like it or not. Thank you for reading and good bye!
