Well, just check out how many views the posts there have and how many go answered with "0"
This really isn't funny anymore....I mean, it's not like Battlefield 4 would be a total niche game now, would it?

At this point I am seeing plenty of negative feedback here about the site overhaul but what I am not seeing is any written response from anyone at Gamespot. Maybe there have been some responses buried in the threads here and I have missed them but I've read quite a lot of the posts here and have not seen one.
I'm sure I am not the only one who would like to know what the reaction to our feedback is at this point and what if any changes are being seriously considered or not in clear terms.
My own personal greatest point of dissatisfaction was the complete dumbing down of my profile page with my games collection and the replacement with "stacks" which are an unsorted mess with no information about each game anymore including my ratings of them. Also, my followed games list simply disappeared. What is more, the stacks are not working. I am unable to add new games to my collection for example. I have to think that this site rollout was at least tested on Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari browsers and yet many are reporting this feature is broken at such a fundamental level.
So please, could we now get some open and honest communication from Gamespot about what is being done, what will be done and what you are not planning to change? For many of us there are decisions to be made based on your response. So it would be much appreciated.
I've been a member for a decade and I am trying to be polite and respectful in this request despite how displeased I am. I hope you will have the courtesy to reply not just for my benefit but for many others here who probably like myself grow tired of talking to each other about all of this without any real news from Gamespot.
Your followed games list is here. I agree its hidden and maybe not very obvious. We'll make that better
Stacks will be getting a revamp very soon. Regarding adding to stacks, its a known issue which should be fixed in the next release.
We've already addressed the big issues with user reviews and are working on more. In the next big release you'll get your ratings on stack items and more sorting/filtering ability in User Reviews. Also your rating on a given game will show up wherever that game is featured. This will likely be released early next week.
In a release to come soon after you'll get sorting ability etc. in stacks.
Hang in there and please keep up the feedback.
Just forget all the update stuff. Save yourself a lot of work guys and just roll back to the old GameSpot. That's ALL we want.
Did you really love Gamespot so much before all of the site changes?
A few months ago people were already complaining because this or that segment or feature was dropped, and this or that reviewer gave a game a bad score.
And now everyone wants things to go back to the way they were a few months ago. But none of you were happy then, either!
It just makes me chuckle.
There's a pretty big difference between SOME stuff you don't like, but still can live with, especially when the site functionality WORKED as intended, and a TOTAL overhaul where NOTHING is left to be liked.....
???? These new forums are really setup to ask questions more so than comments. Yours is a mindless one. It would have been more helpful to everyone if you could stipulate as to what sucked and what's actually ruined. Instead we get an elementary one liner which I hope gets moderated into oblivion.
For someone who has over 250 posts you should be ashamed of yourself.
Word. Meanwhile anybody cares to answer to my pretty similiar and way more fleshed out topic a bit below? No? Ok.....
Yeah, they really BRUTALLY effed GameSpot up now, been here since about the days of Dissidia 012 and I LOVED the site so far. Then they severed ties with GameFAQ's which made every not so famous and active specific game board near dead, but at least Blockbuster Games still had it's audience on the Boards.
When this state was JUST about to recover they transformed a PERFECTLY functioning system into THIS CLUNKY MESS and it took me about 2 days to even FIND the new game specific boards now, typing in a game in the search bar often results in that stupid "Nothing but a barren wasteland" result (Oh Ho Ho....how funny.....NOT!) and after I found it and wanted to start a legit discussion for Battlefield 4....guess what: Have you seen how many topics now go with ZERO answers? Even in AAA Board forums?
This is just sad and ridiculous and if GameSpot doesn't do anything about the HORRID state it is in right now I guess I'll be among the users who will use this site less and less frequently until I'll be gone for good.
Played it a bit on PC, and sure it IS fun for a while, but it still has it's rough edges, like bad balancing, no real goal to play towards to, the point / unlock system is overly complicated etc. etc.
It sure has potencial, but it still needs a lot of polish. Then again, I haven't played it in a while so maybe it has gotten better already.
