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.

It's on the internet, so it must be true!

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.
