I don't know if anyone else has been having this problem since the change to the new gamespot, but I can't seem to find any other past posts about it.
Note: This is not an adblocker problem; I've had to disable it so I could see videos.
My problem is kind of bizarre so I will try to explain it as best as I can.
When I go to game review pages that have a video above the main text, a giant gif has been loading in front of the video before I even hit play.
For example, on the GTA V main review, there is a giant 15 second long, looping video of Franklin standing on top of a mountain/hill (screenshot below). This video is blocking the main review video. Nothing I have tried can remove, or even stop, this from happening. Also, I have noticed when this happens that the gamespot header/menubar at the top of the page disappears.
I have tried opening this same page in firefox and this mini-video doesn't appear at all. Does anyone know why this is happening? Any help would be appreciated as this glitch is a real pain.
