Could they try any harder to be Polygon?

This is the nail in the coffin, for me. I honestly hate the new design, with a passion. It's not good at all for daily browsing. I like reading reviews on Polygon, because they look really nice, and are usually good reviews, but I'd never use it on a regular basis.

Um...I was at Kotaku before I ever came here, and they usually have the news I'm looking for.

Guess I shouldn't use PSLS either Wink

The layout of a website is, I dunno, the least important thing to me.

Kotaku has issues that are far, far, far worse than their site layout.

The fact that a ton of their breaking news articles are hearsay.

I don't get the polygon hate either. That's probably my favorite game site right now.

You should all come to Blistered thumbs. *wink wink, nudge, nudge*

In all seriousness, Polygon is a pretty good gold standard now a days....I like them a lot.

I had never heard of Polygon until now. After looking through some of their reviews, they seem... competent. Nothing too special outside of their layout, really.

I liked reading gamesindustry.biz more when they weren't following the layout trends being set by others.

but it's still an okay place if you're just seeking the news, not the editorials.

I have no problem with Polygon's content, I just don't like the layout.

So what's a good site that posts news someone would actually want to read? I mean...Yeah. I don't really care about 50 percent of the news on GRs main page.

Bring on the "you're not a true gamer then" comments.

Co-optimus....for obvious reasons. I used to visit Destructoid every day, but they post a lot of whiny editorials. It's usually just Jim.
