I can't quite put my finger on it.

Is it the awesome software upgrade of several months ago with all of its new features?

Is it the great community of hilarious and helpful people?

Is it the fine balanced modding?

Is it the retard smiley?  retard retard retard retard retard retard

Is it the #5 all time thread starter?

Is it Purge's obscenely long posts with no paragraph breaks?

Is it Tito Santana?

I thought gellar was drawing an invisible pacman with visible lips sticking out his tongue, because quite frankly invisible pacmans with visible lips are the awesomest thing about this place.

I thought it was our ability to discuss new and exciting high definition technologies, in a polite, respectful, and calm manner.

We need to start having "list threads" again.  Didn't we achieve a certain level of notoriety (or infamy) for having those?

Ellen Pompeo is truly one of the most annoying, gross, skeletal, awful looking actresses on television. Every time someone uses her name as a potential positive it makes me feel slightly queasy.

Either way, GT rocks because its GT. It rocks because of the community the site's founders and mods and its core group of regulars has made it.

I have to admit that I really don't know Ellen Pompeo.  I don't watch Greys Anatomy.  *shrug*

If you want the honest answer, I'll show ya why GT is so damned cool.

Combined stats for the last 7 days:
Gave away roughly 700 dollars in merch to readers
52 news items on the front page
331 Game Records Updated in our DB
128 New Games added to our DB
1 New Trendcast with additional beta key giveaway and a roboraptor!

...and this doesn't count reviews or previews or anything else we are working on behind the scenes!

The staff really bust their ass to make this place rock, and its all for you.  (Except for you Purge.  We don't do it for you.  Damned Canadians with your fake money...I can't believe you guys have the nerve to call em Dollars.   Roll Eyes   icon_twisted)
