As the topic title implies. What is so interesting here that makes you want to come back here everyday or whenever you can (I understand that users have school/work and can't be here daily).

Also,

How would rate your gamespot experience? As in, is this site great, okay or bad.

Unions are the reason why I haven't left. I'd probably only use Gamefaqs otherwise since I really don't care much for reviews. What other site out there has such a unique feature? The site as a whole it's ok, I wouldn't consider it great but it does have its perks. For its main focus, I'd consider it poor though since they are rather slow compared to other sites in giving gaming news.

Reviews, Screenshots and videos are okay. But I really like the GS community. The only reason I am still here talking to all of you. 

I would rate it A-

I forget, my friends are also here, they are as valuable as my emblems. Yeah, the community is a large reason why I am here too and it is also the reason of many users.

If I were to be genuinely honest, my ulterior motive that drives me into regularly logging on GS is just leveling up. Admit it, you're all kinda addicted to the system.

Other than that I just love the news/feeds, video reviews and activities that go on especially earning emblems.

The union forums. Main forums have a lousy community that follows the "rules of the internet" to the letter (minus posting porn images), and are overall impossible to get along with unless you agree with them exactly (which I do not). Union forums, I can get along with the people in generally. And when I don't, I usually can just leave the union and go to one of the other thousands of them available. As for the site's primary intention (being a gaming news site) it fulfills its purpose fairly well. It is biased (like everyone), and a bit slower then IGN and the like, but makes up for it in (usually) having a better quality of writing, especially in reviews (compare GS's Wii Play Motion Review to IGN's and tell me which one wasn't trash).

Perhaps when I originally joined the site, but I've kinda forgotten about levels. They take too long for them to matter nowadays lol.

Levelling doesn't matter to me much these days. I think emblems and post count are more of my thing :P

I remember when emblems were my favorite thing back in the older layout. When they made the new layout I completely stopped caring since they hide them now.

I am hearing they are asking to bring back the old format. Or atleast let us have a way to arrange those emblems so we can show off ones we are proud of. But still emblems are fun to get, there have been a lots of free emblems this season

I've stayed at 26 ever since the new layout was created. In the past it showed all of your emblems on the side of your profile and it was nice being able to show off all the ones you had gotten since it was so noticeable. If you had say 40 you would have like 9 rows of emblems in your profile, now they only show like 8 random ones.

It certainly isn't news anymore. . . other places supply me with that. The only thing that brings me back is this union, along with another union I visit often.

I guess that's one of the advantages to such a big website. You never have to worry about the forums ever dying, there are always going to be people around.
