Viewing Comments starts Videos

When I click on view comments it auto scrolls the page up (too much), which starts the next article's video, which is now blasting at me and I didn't even want that article. Worse is that it will unreliably pause the video if it's off screen. More often than not it doesn't. I don't care about the other article, I'm guessing you get "free" clicks for this, so it won't change. It wouldn't be an issue if the videos were not on auto-play but we know that's never changing.

I wish there was a counter for every time people like you and me had complained about this. There isn't and Gamespot obviously does not care. They've had literally years to fix this. I wish they'd just fess up and admit they're never going to.
