I think Vinny is just a dude who's trying to figure out how to navigate the current year social landscape and be what he considers a decent person. At one point in Dave Chappelle's new standup special he says "I cant live in this new world you're purposing." That line is very telling. The woke far left are firing of social impositions a mile a minute. It's especially bad in gaming (games press, specifically) and it's really easy for someone who tries to be compassionate and empathetic to get overwhelmed by it all. Vinny is a good person. If over the years his peer group begin to assert that this new woke ideology is how you behave if you're a good person, eventually some of that is gonna seep through. Honestly Im surprised he hasn't bought into it more than he has.

I think it's easy to assume crass motivation like "this person is trying to get laid." There's undoubtedly some of that. But more often than not I think it's just well intending liberal people who are trying their best to be on "the right side of history" so they conform.

If that’s the case, then he should grow some balls and act his age. Works for me.

He’s always going on about being more mature and the higher moral authority. Kowtowing to 18-30 year olds on social media and then taking on their opinions and language is not being mature.

And let’s not kid ourselves, if he was truly sympathetic and caring for everybody, then he’d explain both sides of a story when discussing the latest social outrage instead of portraying an extremely biased and one-sided point of view. In other words: he’d give everyone a voice.

But, he doesn’t. He’s a pathetic excuse for a man in my opinion. And I used to love him before he castrated himself.

He also just might not care to rock the boat. He probably likes his position, he gets paid (assuming pretty well too, what with his buying a house and taking care of a family with it) to do a piss easy job, that he enjoys no less. No reason for him to risk being canceled like so many others do in the industry for every little thing.

Edit: Also, in regards to your comment about explaining both sides...look at what happened to someone like boogie on this very site because he was always trying to be the person in the middle. Not saying I like boogie much personally, but he always came across as someone who tried to take the reasonable route, and so many people wouldn't even hear him out.

Vinny is surrounded by everything and everyone liberal and politically correct. If he puts a toe out of line he could lose everything. He knows this because he has seen people like Colin Moriarty lose his job over a joke. I think he's just trying to survive in today's world. Is it kinda cowardly? Yeah, but he's got a lot to lose. I don't think he is a hardcore Democratic Socialists of America type person, I just think he's constantly putting his finger up to see where the wind is blowing in his super PC environment.

If Vinny is so scared to step out of line out of fear of being cancelled, he could sit there and not contribute to the discussion when his workmates are REEEEing about some dumb as fuck shit. That’s what Dan does. You can tell when Dan thinks they are full of shit because he goes quiet. Vinny ACTIVELY encourages and participates in the condescension, virtue-signalling and cancel culture.

So, I don’t buy that argument.

Yeah, I may be totally wrong about Vinny. Also, He is definitely a liberal and I assume has been most of his life, so he is going to agree with some of the discussions, I just don't think he is as bad as Abby or Alex on most things.

He’s definitely more palatable than them, for sure. But, he holds a lot of the responsibility for why Giant Bomb is the shit show it is nowadays, in my opinion.

Remember when Dan was bullied into speaking about Trump?

God, poor Dan. He just wants to talk about wrestling and ask stupid questions. He must hate all the political stuff. You're right, he was definitely coerced into getting political, even though I assume this tweet was a genuine sentiment from him.

You guys were totally right, Abby is the office slut, and I have video evidence of her and Dan having a little fun time.


Lol, I forgot I streamed this a year ago, I remade all the GB people that they made for 13 deadly sims on the PS4 version and was playing with them for a while. I guess I didn't always hate Abby since I remade her in The Sims 4.

Also, I found an image of Vinny kissing another staff member, but it's NOT who you think it is!

I want to preface this by saying that at 30-years-old I first started being a part of this weird community back in 2005 with Gamespot and The Hotspot/On The Spot etc etc so this is no drive-by troll.

Similarly, although there are many points in this thread which are accurate and on-point, I feel the trolling and really insulting posts are too far. They'll never read them, but it just doesn't make you sound like nice people.

With that said, Giant Bomb is definitely in its weakest era right now.

BAD PERSONALITIES FOR A PERSONALITY-DRIVEN SITE

Ben
- He is simply unfunny and annoying. He is the first hire who actively makes any piece of content he's in worse.
Jason - Likeable guy and I like hearing about his weird life, but also fairly dull when it comes to games. If it isn't an odd Japanese game or a fighting game (both of which I hate), he's totally uninvolved.
Brad - Yeah, what the hell, the OG himself? Brad just seems bored, going through the motions, and a few games aside, doesn't seem to enjoy the medium any more.
Jan - Similar to Jason, totally cool dude and I like his non-gaming stuff, but anything game related is zzzz.

WEST IS BASICALLY DYING


You'll probably notice the above list is all West coast. As soon as Vinny and Dan left, that coast has been fucked. There are no good series, EVERY stream is just sitting at the desk, UPF is at least 3 years past where it should have been killed, and other than the Bombcast (which is usually pretty bad), I avoid most West content now.

EAST SHOULD BE MORE

Okay, I'm going to go against the grain here and just say I like Abby. Can she be an annoying millennial? Yeah, she's too PC, and her gaming knowledge isn't up with the rest of the guys, but I like her. I think she adds a lot to the site and she entertains me a lot more than she makes my eyes roll.

And, because I don't hate Abby like some, I think East is really good. All of the crew are still passionate and bring good ideas to the table, and their regular guests (Jeff B, Mike, etc) are all awesome too.

But - they're in a cramped, shitty studio, and should be getting more resources.

West have this huge studio, all the kit in the world, and they do nothing with it.

BOTH COASTS ARE TOO CORPORATE

The days of anything happening at any time in the weird bomb shelter are a distant memory. Now even their (few and far between) mailbags etc suck because West are in a huge office, and the East guys are trapped in a tiny studio. Everything is too planned, too safe, it's not the foundation that Giant Bomb was built on.

WHERE'S THE CONTENT?

What exactly do these guys do all day? I know meetings, planning, tech stuff... but seriously, why don't both coasts have at least twice as many premium features? The likes of Burgle My Bananas aside, it's just playing a game in front of a camera. Twitch and YouTubers so so much more when it's just them - and they have high production values.

I think I am done with gb for now. I've been long time viewer(since the day 1) and then a subscriber the day they started taking money. The site is just not what it used to be. I will point some issues I have with the site.
They permanently banned me last week during bombcast in chat. They were talking about Zoe/Holowka case and I just suggested politely in chat to maybe keep it objective, do not believe twitter accusations and already a man died because if this, so let's leave it for law to decide. Especially considering her questionable past. They told me to fuck off (mods and crazies in chat too) and banned me even though my view was on topic, not extreme and not offending anyone. PERMANENT BAN from ever chatting and commenting... for a gold sub with 10 years on the site. WTF is even going on?! It is kinda crushing to me since I was a fan of the site forever and I still have year of sub in advance.

But that might not matter much because I was slowly dropping off the content in recent years. Approximately after 2014, the content started becoming stale and new staff hires are just not capturing the GB feel which is impossible of course and maybe I should not be sour about it.
I think Ryan passing either broke me or the site. Then even Patrick left and I liked his stuff but he worked great with Ryan. I mark this moment as me slowly loosing interest in the site.
Ben is fine although he tries too hard and don't bring too much that Jeff don't (which is not a bad thing maybe)
Jason is a nightmare. All anime and fighting games stuff. Nothing else. Maybe I just don't like him
Jan is alright!
Abby is mixed bag. She does some creative content but she tries so hard to prove herself in games. "I am so good at this despite being a young woman". The recent Resident evil playdate is a prime example of this. I feel like they all had to talk "no, no - really. You are great at the game!". And I feel she brought with her too much sjw crap to the site. At least it feels like it.
Brad is a husk of a former living human. He don't play any games for goty talks. I always liked his chill character but he is just not interested in gaming anymore.
Jeff, Vinny and Alex are still good. Dan was a late hire but I always liked him too. Although he tries too hard to be funny by looking like a moron.

So the staff is the staff. You cannot like everyone and it's ok but the content is ranking from terrible to ok in recent years.
The recent Blasphemous QL is a disgrace. They don't show anything, run around cistern for 10 minutes... don't show any cutscenes, music, mechanics and ask to "go and youtube if You like the game". Cmon...
UPF is a borefest for years too. It's either fighting or anime games (or both). After vinny left for East, upf became unbearable. It was emergent and crazy before that. And why do they feel the need for doing "preshows" after years of streaming without it. That's too professional.
Gta V content was super not what I expected it to be (it was not crazy vinny shenanigans). Burgle my Bananas is boring and hard to understand, Ben stuff is not interesting to me at all, and goty was terrible for years with most of the staff not playing most of the games. There is some content I liked in recent years but it's not what it used to be. For example -I can rewatch phantasmagoria1 and Doom2 breaking bad any day. Love this stuff.

Got myself permabanned after commenting under that recent podcast with the gamespot kids, the one with the girl talking about WHITE NATIONALISM, saying i miss the good old days of "the cool dudes playing and talking about videogames" and i dont really enjoy hearing about politics in my videogames podcast, like you i'm a follower from day one and a paying customer since they started taking subscriptions.

I've cancelled my subscription during the last premium sale, not really seeing a future when i will come back.

I think Abby, barring any sort of serious harassment, largely gets what she deserves. She is so impudent about criticism, all the while insulting a large part of the Giant Bomb fan base. Did you see her variety hour thing?

My God, was everybody ever fawning over her during those Resident Evil Playdates. It was so irritating.

No, I'm totally bored of all PAX content, so the idea of just her and Jan running a show didn't appeal to me at all.

Personally, I think she gets way too much shit. Go one or two pages back here, with people posting close-ups of her face, making rude comments about her appearance, and saying she only got hired because Vinny wanted to fuck her.

We all know the far left like ResetERA is fucking insufferable, but then there's a lot of stuff here too far in the other direction, so we go round and round and round...

The thing with Jason that personally irks me the most is not that he is useless when it's not about anime or fighting games, it's more that even when it is about anime or fighting games, his knowledge is not as deep and broad to warrant his "narrow specialization", so to speak. That kinda annoys me.

I Giant Bomb lost me completely when Dan moved to GBEast. Jeff and Dan had a chemistry going where it was at least funny most of the time. With him gone, there's no one left at GBWest that has any chemistry with any other person there. GBEast I don't really follow because many things have Abby in it and I can't stand her since the GOTY stuff. And maybe that's more my problem than hers, I don't know. Alex also tends to annoy me more often than not.

Feel free to dispute what you don’t agree with, i.e. Abby is ugly as fuck and the way Vinny white-knights her is creepy and makes people with good observational skills question his motives.

Anyone remember when Jan did the preemptive apology on Twitter right when he got hired about his past tweets? I know he was just getting ahead of the curve. I didn't care enough to dig through his whole history, and I'm sure he scrubbed them before posting the apology anyway.

I heard he did that. I wonder what was so bad he had to preemptively apologize. Though, knowing that he grew up in California, the tweets are probably innocuous anywhere outside that bubble.

Yeah I'm sure it was pretty innocuous but this was right when people were getting crucified left and right so I get why he did it.

I don't hate Jan he's just....there. The cutsey schtick gets old and he doesn't seem to care much about games outside of Pokemon or if there's an adaptation of some cartoon. But unlike Abby I do believe he knows how to run that equipment and a lot about the actual work he's responsible for.

Also he had the difficult task of essentially replacing Drew.

Yeah, he worked on Mythbusters so he had some good experience. He seems to be a pretty laid back dude, but I haven't watched much of the stuff he's been in.

He's certainly more watchable than Ben, but that's not saying much 'cause a bowl of Cornflakes would be more watchable than Ben.

I don't entirely agree with some of those posts bashing her looks, but I also feel like the point is, you should be able to mock someone a little bit with it becoming some sort of culture war. She does look like a clown in make up, but I don't think she's a hideous woman. Her personality and SJW politics is what makes her an ugly person to me. But I digress, I think what's been posted here is what should be allowed, and not getting outright banned for after being a loyal fan for many years. When more than half of your personality driven site has personalities that are insufferable, then there's something wrong.

Me too. She's showing a lot of flesh the last few months.
I'm gonna have to look this up...for research....

Edit: I can see why now they might not have wanted her as a hire for Giant Bomb, all the duders would be sitting there with their legs crossed to hide their erections.

Let’s also not forget that she posted on Twitter MOCKING the looks of Cate Blanchett’s husband and then tried to backpedal when she got called out.

If she can do it, then why can’t I? She has an ugly personality too. Wouldn’t touch her if she were the last woman on Earth, to be honest.

Yeah, she's dishing out critiques on looks, so she better be ready to receive them.

lmao I just found this

Edit: I can see why now they might not have wanted her as a hire for Giant Bomb, all the duders would be sitting there with their legs crossed to hide their erections.
Reminds me of that one clip of Mary bending over and jeff looking at her ass and licking her lips

Feel free to dispute what you don’t agree with, i.e. Abby is ugly as fuck and the way Vinny white-knights her is creepy and makes people with good observational skills question his motives.
I'm not sure how you want me to dispute what you're saying really?

I think Abby is of reasonable attractiveness. Not a stunner and not ugly.

Vinny is just generally a good guy and a father now, so in my view it would stem more than that. Like any guy he probably has thought about shagging his co-worker. I'm not really interested in psychoanalysing him. I just don't see the reason to be that rude about Giant Bomb's MVP.

I just don't see the reason to be that rude about Giant Bomb's MVP.
Because he turned into a snivelling, pathetic excuse for a man and played a large part in Giant Bomb going from my favourite podcast to an absolutely embarrassing circlejerk of condescension and virtue-signalling by a cast of social rejects who I wouldn’t give the time of day to in real life.

When these losers feel like they can lecture their listeners from high atop their throne of virtue, they can damn well be ridiculed too.

And everyone knows Dan is the MVP. Vinny’s a pathetic husk of his former self.
