All in all the changes with Gamespot "wide" are a step in the right direction. Good work. The days of hard coding the page width to 800 are hopefully long gone. And while the "wide" doesn't really utilize the entire screen, it's still looks nicer than the old Gamespot.
That said I'm very bummed they basically rendered my *favorite* gamespot feature useless. I'm talking about the pop down menu that was labeled My Games. I used this to track around 75 - 100 games I was current interested in playing or buying. It was something I'd do many times per day. This was my direct line to all my current games. One click and I could see all the games I needed to watch, or one click and bam! I was directly pointed to the game in question.
Yes, yes, I know I can go through the trouble of clicking the expand arrow, waiting for the data to show, and then click the My Games pop down menu, only to have it disappear again when the page refreshes. Who wants to jump through a bunch of hoops, when previously it was amazingly simple and easy to do?
I'd recommend moving something much less used that's taking up valuable space in that area, such as logout and prefs. How often are those used? Never, once or twice a month, a year? Keep the expand arrow, but put the My Games pop down menu back in place please! :)
