@matastig: This place is but a shell and ghost of what it once was. CBS asked us what we thougt, we said and they did not care. So why even ask to begin with? Bu ti guess some did like the new format and stayed but what made the site special is long gone. Former editors and writers DO NOT hold this site dearly!

I need to open up my own blogging site so I can monetize what I think. Bu tno one wats to see pics of me or see me on a video.. I am much better faceless.

Their old client was terrible and very aggressive. Which is to say it interfered with the OS and other applications. Maybe this will be better...

@matastig: I talk to Synthia every few months. No she is not her anymore and has not been for some time. She is a rather accomplished Magic: The Gathering player and does quite a few twitch broadcasts. She is ranked high in online play!

I remember when she started that game I taught her a few basics I knew.

Loyalty has gone to hell. CBS was intent on ruining this- and they did that and only diehards with no place else to go are here.

GS tried to become something it was not- and failed. Failed themselves and the gamer.

@matastig: I hate this site. And I used to love it. OMG! I was always here! But when CBS started to ruin it. Internally around 2009 or 2010 and we saw good editors and writers leave we knew something was up. It was 2012-2013 that finally sealed this site fate as a has been.

I could not up vote you either. But on the PS3 page-part way down is a Tom McShea article of last year about Child of Light- I know -4 years AFTER release. THAT can be upvoted. Go figure.

Yep! Fuse is alive and well despite CBS and the old GS getting rid of it and despite Andy McNamara's crazy ideas at GI. Ones that will ruin the site but I suspect he is priming himself for a career change and heading to Giant Bomb. A lot that used to be here , pre screwing this place up, are there.

I also sent out messages and asked for emails . None replied. Do none of you read your inbox alerts?

@abHS4L88 No Nintendo was not present--there was no televised press conference. Just one for the reporters only on the second day in the early hours of the morning-but Nintendo was not there. They choose not to attend--they alone removed themselves from the equation. At the past 2013 E3--they were irrelevant. By their own choice.

And A Link.. is the same game play I played back on my SNES in the original Link title this one is based on. It may not be a remake-but it comes close to being one.

These are the reasons it should not have won.

@sidepaneling Perhaps. And I would even be willing to remove GTA V from the list and include Zelda-but--I think compared to Bioshock--and the DLC released and yet to be released for it-Zelda comes in last out of those 3.

It's a sad day when this site shows , to all, how much it is no longer relevant. Three titles were in serious contention for GOTY--and Zelda was not one of them. The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, and GTA V. All were passed over. I guess in an attempt to appease the Nintendo crowd who were absent from the past E3???? Serious gamers passed on the WiiU, a novelty more than a game system. The only thing keeping Nintendo in the game (pun intended) are the handheld offerings. GS, you show no class or objectivity!

@deathstream @zinoalex Possibly not innovating. But doing enough to outclass the competitors. If the system last 7-9 tears, all innovations do not need to happen now. But the gamer should feel thought of. Even if they are thought of directly. Look at the failure the PSP Go was when the gamers wants and needs were thought of.
