as much as bob frequently pissed me off, and as annoyed as i was at his "sometimes i have a boston accent, but not always" voice, i still found myself watching most of his reviews. more than once he pissed me off to the point where i swore i'd never watch again.
that being said, i'd love if all the talent this site has let slip over the years (Jim, Bob, EC, Lisa Foiles...) team up with Yahtzee and go make their own site. i've been a near daily visitor to this site since 2008, and when i wanted to comment on a ZP video, i made an account in 2009. slowly and steadily i feel as though i've seen the soul of this site stripped out.
my biggest pet peeve on this site is the fact that there are spelling and grammar errors on nearly every article any more. i notice them immediately. do contributors not proof-read? do the articles not go to the editor first? and if so, why are they missing these glaring errors?
another problem is over-zealous mods. before here, i was a frequent poster on GameFAQS, and hated how censored and moderated it all was, treating it's users like children. but then i found here, a site where i could talk about bad gameplay features and feel free to say "fuck that shit!" if i so chose. but then the mods came in harder and harder.
first they came for the low content posters, and i did not speak up because i was not a low content poster.
then they came for the trolls, and i did not speak up because i was not a troll.
then they came for me. and there was no one left to speak for me.
