@jdlok: Yeah, what does that guy know?

Oh wait.

In any case, I am not worried about what you do or don't believe, but did you really have to be a big dick about it?

@dribblesbarbax: I'll look into this to make sure there are no factual errors.

The comment system has changed. Change frightens me.

@Deadlysyns87: It's what people read. When a major game is released, people crave information on it, and you would be surprised to learn that the GameSpot commentariat does not represent players at large. As with most games-related publications, most of our traffic comes from Google search and, to a lesser extent, the front page of our own website, and Witcher 3 information is what they are searching for. We have detailed data--like most websites--about what people search, how they click, how long they stay on a page, etc etc etc. That data helps us learn what people read and watch.


This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone on the Internet, really. When there's an episode of Game of Thrones, or the Mad Men final comes, or an Avenger film is released, or whatever, websites publish things about it because there is a large audience for it. When something else happens--a new game is released, or another big film comes out, or something else big happens in a given medium, the conversation shifts. That is how we draw traffic and make money, so that we can do other articles when there isn't lots of news on a major game, and review games that don't have 500-member development teams.

@cboye18: Last week, everyone was mad because there wasn't enough Witcher stuff. There's no pleasing the Internet!

@i5204: It's almost like my introductory paragraphs answer this question in an incredibly clear way!


Edit: Also, did you actually read this? I suspect you are complaining about something that this article doesn't actually do...

@ihmishylje@Kevin-V: There is no romantic carryover in that sense, but you *do* make some romantic choices. To say more would be spoilery.
