    Do you have screens of the old gr ? It was something like 3 years ago now that you changed and everybody has gotten used to this format but I remember when it first moved everybody was complaining about the bright red hurting their eyes and not being able to look at it for more than 10 seconds etc etc. I can't even remember what the old format looked like anymore though, it would be interesting to have a nostalgic peek at the past.

    the current site is like the 6th total overhaul we've done over the 12(!) years we've been around.

    I still remember when they had Crash and Spyro on the header. If you look through some older reviews, you might be able to find pages untouched by time.

    Loved everything about that old design, but that's just the way I am. Wish I had taken a better pic! could changed the resolution or something...

    but as a matter of fact, I thought the old forums were.....

    There are actually some old URLs that are still attached to Old Site. We're redirecting them to the new pages, but if you want some examples of how old GR looked there are

    http://www.gamerevolution.com/oldsite/ for a look at how one of the old home pages looked.

    http://www.gamerevolution.com/oldsite/previews/featured/samba_de_amigo.htm this is from an even older iteration of GR. Notice the logo was a G and a backwards R.

    http://www.gamerevolution.com/oldsite/download/emulator/nes.htm: this was when the logo was an R with a down arrow attached.

    http://www.gamerevolution.com/oldsi...olis_street_racer/metropolis_street_racer.htm and perhaps one of my favorite eras, notice the double Rs.

    If you play around, you can find pages like this http://www.gamerevolution.com/oldsite/previews/featured/pc/gta_san_andreas/gta_san_andreas.htm with one of Duke's old icons.

    Again, check these out now, because hopefully within the week, they will all redirect to their proper location.

    I'd have to agree w/ all of you about almost everything. The Old School is still cool, school still [email protected]#$%^g sucksin general, and the new style is "kool" enough in its own right.

    honestly, i like the new design.
    the first time i ever navigated to GR was when they used to have an emulator section. until recently they still had the page somewhere unchanged.
    can't find it now though :(

    This brings back memories of the old days. The days when I came here everyday but never signed up for an account.
