Re: Why did GameCritics never catch on?
Thanks for the kind words, you guys! It feels great to know that there are at least a few people out there who get value out of what we do.
If I had to explain why we haven't gotten bigger, i think it all comes down to time. We all have day jobs and many of us have families.
We just don't have the bandwidth to be 'out there' as much as other sites do, probably because they're generally staffed with single twentysomethings who have lots of free time and can survive on frighteningly small earnings.
it's tough to work a full day to support your family and then come home and work some more, and for free. keeping up with games takes a lot of effort, and balancing that with real life is a challenge - there are just so many hours in the day.
