Posting in an old thread but this still feels topical. This change has made the site unusable for me, you've removed the best features of it while keeping others untouched at all (comments section much? could've used a rating system). What happened to the hype ratings and my game library? Was great to use that Wanted List to keep tabs on upcoming games.
Of course people usually hate change but it's not just because it's different, it's functionally awful and aesthetically displeasing... and just because every other Web 2.0 site updated doesn't mean you have to follow.
