Yes, please stop 71%
No, keep going 29%

Just curious.

Personally I find them absolutely dull and pointless. In journalism they’re what’s known as “padding,” articles or parts of articles simply written to increase the volume of a publication or an article.

It's dumb and easy, just another vehicle for video ads.

Gamespot has some surprisingly good content of late (relatively speaking), and while potato mode was neat at first, its novelty has worn off; we get it, things look funny when they are dialed down to 0.

I am enjoying the videos about famous weapons in games, however, so Gamespot is still doing....sort of OK....of late. The one about the WH40K bolter was surprisingly in-depth with some really neat interviews with the Games Workshop museum.

Nah, it's decent content for a gaming website.

I'd rather they stop reporting on movies and TV shows (obviously Witcher would be a logical exception) and focus on more games journalism, like the kind of stuff Patrick Klepek or Jason Schreier. New stuff, you know, that you don't find on press releases.
