    You have nearly lost everything that made Gamerevolution great. In fact, when I look at the front page, I almost don't see any gaming news anymore. Over half of the "news" are about some streamer or the other. Quite often, it's not even about gaming or games. The only connection these "news" have are that the person in question plays video games but in these stories even that is completely irrelevant. This is not journalism. It is not news. It is sensationalism. Gamerevolution has become a tabloid.

    And what I see is that you have a ton of people writing these types of stories and only a couple that actually write proper coverage about video games (and those couple are the few GR veteran writers left).

    It saddens me so much that quality hasn't simply dwindled, it has crashed into the ground, hard. Please, write less about streamers that did something or the other on their stream or even worse, in their private life. And write more about video games, it's industry, the developers and for the love of journalism... interview people. Interviewing is the core of journalism at large, it is not simply a page of questions and answers, it is the main source in news stories. Interview takes skill and courage, it is a dialogue between the media and industry, and even industry and consumers. It is good journalism. Reporting what you saw on a stream or what some other outlet wrote is not.

    With deep love and concern for Gamerevolution,
    your reader for 20 years

    I'm very disappointed in GameRevolution as well. The site has changed so much over the past few years and in my opinion, has really gone downhill. The forums are especially dead, and the entire site as a whole is just riddled with obnoxiously intrusive video-based ads. This makes me especially sad as I've been visiting GameRevolution for a very long time, hell I even worked with them for three years on our now non-existent GR Strips comic.

    GameRevolution's social media kind of sucks as well. They just share memes nowadays with no credit to the source of said meme. Because that's how you Facebook, right?

    GameRevolution, what have you become?
