    :D you're right, I've started to pay it forward now.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    Rolf used the peedobux referral system. Saville earned a fortune from those.

    Nope. Posters on the forum and comments make the site what it is so in effect I would be paying to access a product as part of that product. Its like all members of a band paying to access the band they are part of........which is pretty fucked up.

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    Definitly, I think about it like a newspaper, if I can get Eurogamer ad-free with more abilities to, for example.. nah, I can't get up with a good idea yet, I would pay. But I am interested in doing this generaly, but one sub for all languages. I don't know why the french page is down, for example, and I read the article there too.
    Eurogamer is one of the good sites were journalism can actually be found. I'm in for supporting it.

    Make people pay then wait for the fireworks when they get banned or start making demands others are for "abuse".

    Eurogamer isn't like GiantBomb which has a large & dedicated audience willing to pay money for their content.

    If you'd have asked 4 years ago, I would have said yes.
    It was a consistent group of writers, who were funny, engaging and knew their audience.

    Nowadays? No.
    Even before Tom "I've just met a bird then had a kid and you're all going to share my middle-class guilt epiphany" Bramwell made things intolerable with his agenda, the site was dipping quite a bit.
    Party the industry's fault - even stricter embargoes and DLC etc taking the fun out of gaming, and part EG's fault - a slew of show-off contributors and Jeff Mutalef.

    I only visit the forum now.

    If I owned this site, I'd be calmly calling the Editor into my office and telling him to get back to reviewing games.

    He's alienating his audience - not because we are sexists, but because he keeps accusing us of being all the stereotypes of what a typical male gamer is.
    Take a look around this forum - it's full of intelligent people. We don't need telling how to correctly behave, we're already doing it, and long before he belatedly cottoned on.

    NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOPPPPPEEEE!

    Although if they removed that fucking neg button on article posts I'd certainly reconsider it... (and still say nope)

    Out of curiosity I've just disabled adblock on this site (which was switched on due to their ridiculously obtrusive choice of ads). If they could disable ads completely for paying members I'd definitely give it some consideration. On a 16:9 display it looks fucking horrendous!

    No.

    Due to the recent soapbox politics direction of the site I wouldn't even consider visiting Eurogamer without adblock on. Getting tired of the Editor insinuations.

    You're all just saying this because you're basement dwelling anti social nerds with no income who hate women.

    Seriously though, when the real staff go home and matulef comes in it's like asking if you'd pay for a Kickstarter RSS feed.

    I said "I will never buy your magazine again!" as a joke for the longstanding regulars. They're carebear noobs who will understand the joke.
