I wonder how many of the programmers at SE even played FFVII. It sure sure seems like they haven't, as the the Final Fantasies since IX have felt completely off and different since then. The old Final Fantasies' worlds felt old, rugged, lived in, and therefore alive, while the FF's since feel plastic, clean, and robotic. I liken it to the Prequels of Star Wars since the original trilogy. Accept in their case, they were made by George Lucas with nothing but Yes-Men around him...

Although I like the topic of the article, the article itself was delivered in inappropriate way. It totally misses to convey the feeling sadness about the characters that were lost in the stories...

This is a sad time :(. Seb and Cam and Lucy bounce off each other so well! I hope you can find other fun people to do skits with, Lucy, and Seb and Cam, I hope you find another place where you can be awkward. It is the only proper way of things.

“I hope no one who reads this book has been quite as miserable as Susan and Lucy were that night; but if you have been - if you've been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you - you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing is ever going to happen again.” - C.S. Lewis

Haven't seen the video or read comments, but I'm judging from the picture of the video that I already know what is going to happen at the end of Last of Us.

@Sanligo: It's actually from the first five minutes of the game, so no end-game spoilers

Say his to the modern world, where nice guys can't even playfully touch knees of nice girls because of the all ******** and SJW bullshit.

Maybe I'm heartless but I didn't find Read Dead's ending sad at all. R* doesn't make games with tight stories so maybe that's why. Their games usually start off strong then quickly slide off into huh?? Red Dead's Mexico levels are an example.

I just hope Cam and Seb are going to the same place. They can't get separated! They're like Joey and Chandler.

@Chattel: Yeah IGN and Gamespot are pretty much the same thing now but IGN videos actually work most of the time. I guess I'll just go full on IGN. Ah well.

Why can't Gamespot hold on to talent? I like Lucy and Kevin and Danny, so it's a shame they're just queuing up to become the next drummers in Gamestop's version of Spinal Tap. And, now Seb and Cam are leaving? There were longer tenured Defense Against the Dark Arts professors at Hogwarts, for God's sake. This is getting ridiculous. Ummmm, Gamespot, your website relies on page views, so you may want to give your readership a reason to, you know, come back and view your pages. I still haven't forgiven you for letting Johnny walk. He was to Gamespot what John Hamm is to Mad Men - indispensable. The site hasn't been the same sans Feedbackula.


Oh well, goodbye Seb and Cam. In the words of the Night's Watch: "And now their watch has ended." And an early farewell to Lucy and Danny and KVO and Eddie 'Clickbait' Makuch. Have your CVs ready.

@Saxondale: Because GS sucks ass and has been falling apart since the rise of Social Justice Warriors and journalists with an agenda.

@Morphine_OD@Saxondale: I like Gamespot. Are they the stereotypical left-wing social-engineers bent on brainwashing the sheep, destroying Western Civilization and erecting a totalitarian super-state atop the rubble? Yes, of course they are. They're owned by CBS, after all. But I like the content here. I like that I can select a gray background. I like the UX/UI. And I generally like their writers and presenters: Lucy, KVO, Danny, Chris Watters, etc. Gary Kasparov was still a great chess player, even when he was a citizen of the USSR. I just enjoy Gamespot's talent and laugh-off their clumsy attempts at political indoctrination.

Haven't checked out the site in the while, and the day i come back i see that both Seb and Cam are leaving GS, quite a shame in a way, now the only two people left to watch are Danny and Jess...

@CDsmasher@evil_np: Yeah, there are all doing great work. Although you guys are aware that one office is in AU (irrc) and one in US San Francisco right? That's why Danny, Kevin or Chris don't meet up with Lucy and Cam for instance.
