    Does G4 piss any other gamers off as well. Why did they have to merge with Tech TV? I loved Tech TV, but cannot stand G4 and the merging. I want to reach through the televsion and slap the reporters of upcoming games, and the people who just leave out so much when going reviewing an old school game. :(

    Its good that games and gamers are getting recognition, but come on! They need better news reproters and better writing in their shows. We need a gaming network that is a 100% hardcore all around gaming network. It would be cool if they aired the old Nick Arcade and Video Power or make new shows like that. :D

      Yeah G4 sucks. The Tech TV stuff was better quality and the reporters seemed to know some of what they were talking about. The G4 people to me are boreing and I could care less about what they are talking about. They got rid of all the good Tech TV shows and left their crap to fill the empty spaces.

            I like G4 but some of the shows are stupid. X-Play is an awesome show. Attack of the Show is a little full of it self. but the channel is good. The problem is, I liked Techtv too. I wouldn't say more than G4 but yeah I liked it. I miss it but hopefully in the next few years a new channel will come that wiil be the new TechTv.

              Yeah X-Play is basically the only show Ill watch on G4 now. Ive been watching it since it was Gamespot TV back in the ZDTV days. AOTS used to be good but Kevin Rose left and I just dont care to watch it anymore, Kevin P just isnt as cool as Kevin Rose.

                  I tried to like G4, I really did.
                  But after about a week, I came to one realization. Their target audience seems to be pot smoking teenagers, and their reviews suck. I mean, they show off a game. It looks like they just read the back of the box and threw in some video clips to go along with it. I mean, they tell me NOTHING about a game that you wouldn't get off of the official advertisements.

                  Honestly, I lost all respect for the station when I saw 'em ragging on the GameCube, and they never managed to regain so much as a shred of it back.

                    Another old thread, but worthy of a reply.

                    Attack of the Show! kicks massive arse. If G4 were just Attack of the Show!, I'd watch it non-stop. That is all.

                      X-play is still good stuff, and AOTS is alright, though this helps A LOT:

                        Right but X-play is better because it's classic tv with the same host since 1998.

                          I'm sorry, but any show with Olivia Munn is the best show. I would eat her like a sandwich.

It seems as if they are very strict with them sticking to the script. & The Screen Savers was awesome! Attack of the show was good, but has gotten worse since Kevin Rose left. & the original Call for Help was teh bomb!

                                Totally agree.

                                I can make two comparisons with G4:

                                First, Sportscenter. Sportscenter used to be the mecca for sports highlights. For me it was, anyway. It's really gone downhill though. It's funny and entertaining, but it's not the sports I want. A lot of times you'll see like two highlights of a game, and then they'll throw in a fan catching a ball in his cup of beer or something. Give me sports... not drama. They have Terrell Owens coverage way too frequently, etc... they didn't stay true to their target audience (the hardcore sports fans). Instead, I think they now target college-aged run-of-the-mill fans... and it sucks.

                                X-Play is kind of like Sportscenter. It used to be good, but now it seems so watered down. Much like sports highlights, their reviews suck. They're so short and they don't tell you anything. Their 'reviews' consist of practically nothing but jokes. Sure, it's entertaining, but what if you want to know about the games?

                                The network itself is basically Spike: redux. Now they're just trying to be the network for guys. It's pretty sad that they have some of the shows they do... it's almost embarrassing.

                                  I like it. It's a refreshing change to what we usually get over here. Keep in mind that all I get is AFN satellite, and whatever shows they decide to pick from real television stations....so, getting Attack of the Show! over here was a pleasant surprise. We also get Cheat! and some other gamer show.

                                    Yeah it's very stupid sometimes I watch it to get cheat codes or to see what new games come out. The thing I don't like about it is the host of the shows are stupid and the topics they have are very dumb. G4 a word of advice just stick to the game industry and stop trying to bring other topics in.

                                        G4 started going downhill in 2004 when they merged with TechTV. I first got G4 back in December 27, 2002 when I got Comcast Digital Cable. They had good shows talking about video games such as Judgement Day, Cheat, and Filter. Also back then they used to air Starcade which was kind of simular to Nick Arcade (which actually is a kids version of Starcade). But yes some of the shows did suck such as Players and some GamerTV shows. But I stopped watching G4 when I moved out of my house and took back our Cable box to Comcast. But I offically stopped liking G4 for good when they took Judgement Day and Cheat off the air.

                                          I used to watch G4 a lot when we first got it years ago. I forgot when the station started. Anyway, I really stopped watching it when I was going to school and then when I was working. Last year, I found out that they stopped showing two of my favorite shows on that station: Judgement Day and G4TV. Filter has been changed way too much for me to enjoy that. The last time I saw that show, the countdown was something about what guys like or something, so you could imagine what that consisted of. >_>;

                                          The shows now, I guess they're okay from what I've seen. I like Ninja Warrior and original Star Trek and every once in a while I may watch X-play, even though it's not all that great. I notice they give low ratings to games that those their age probably shouldn't be playing. Like the ones aimed at kids.

                                          One show I don't get why it's on there, is Cheaters and Cops. My aunt said she came across those shows on there. It's like a SpikeTV clone or something, or either G4 is going for that.
