Atrocious and Unwieldy


Is it just me
, or does Gamespot's layout get a little worse every day?

They certainly present intense layouts that grab your eyeballs with tiny grasping fists. Their current Black & White 2 skin on the PC menu looks great.

But I can't find shit. It's a morass of menus and crazy clickable icons. Somehow my login ID is at level 5 (35%) -- but I have no fucking clue what that could possibly mean!

Just . . . mindboggling. I see that they're trying to cover all the bases by having lots of content headings, but do they have anybody at all testing the ease-of-use of their site?

I think it may send me into seizures.

Grand mal, at that.

Things like this always make me wonder who is making the design the decisions. Web developers or some sort of manager. I constantly run into customers who only care about making things flashy and will not defer to me or my team's expertise in making a site usable. The just figure we're lazy or bad designers when we try to explain why something needs to remain simple.

Sigh.

Which is why I want to get out of the business...
