    So G4 is officially dead, Spike TV to take up gaming news?

    Well for those that do not know G4, while it has been sucky past year, has officially closed up shop for gaming and is becoming some crappy esquire network.

    So here we are with a chance for a network to create a show for us gamers. Something like X-Play, Cheats, and for us geeks a better version of Attack of the Show. With SpikeTV showing Xbox reveal, and of course thier gaming awards they seem like the perfect network for this to happen. So what are your thoughts. Is shows dedicated to gaming good, or do we just need websites and that's it?

    Me I love gaming shows. I really want a new X-play but with Adam back because love him or hate him he tends to say the truth.

    No point in a channel dedicated to games when you have the Internet.
    Trophy-licious!

    I'd welcome a channel or a show dedicated to gaming. Spike is the men's channel or a channel leaning toward men; it's the perfect network for a gaming show.

    The gaming show should not only have breaking news, but reviews as well.

    SpikeTV already has a gaming show on it, I forget the name but I catch it maybe twice a year on average, usually once a year. The time its on is horrible, I believe 1:00 am EDT on Friday's. The host is Jeff.

    If you want a gaming show just watch Reviews on the Run and/or Electric Playground from Canada. All their shows are on their site without commercials. I'm still waiting for them to upload their entire archive of shows going back to 1997.

    It's pretty odd how there is no dedicated gaming channel. Gaming is a huge industry and there's channels for everything else.

    G4 tried the geeky route, but if there's another attempt at a gaming channel, perhaps they have to make gaming seem cooler and less like The Big Bang Theory. But then again....The Big Bang Theory is a hit show.

    Not going to miss it because I never watched it.

    From what I saw of the G4 clips on youtube it seems pretty crappy and imed at much younger audiences, in their late teens to early 20s.
    Gamers used to be young but not so these days.

    It used to be worthwhile to watch. So many good shows were on until they started adding shows that were irrelevant to gaming. I knew that it was going to fail eventually.

    I used to watch MMOReport back in the day, but yeh, the rest of G4 had nothing of intrest, for gaming shows now i just watch Up at Noon!
    There once was a man named Sidney, he used to collect shells on the beach. everything was going well for him. untill he stopped and took a look, he had a glance and a stare and realised he what he was reading.
    It was a forum signature full of nonsense

    Gaming is much more suited for web content.

    Gamers would rather use the TV to watch gamers talk and play games rather than ****ing play games? Wat? Oh, that's right. Dumb.

    I hope no one takes Spike TV seriously. They'd probably make a gaming show that would look exactly like that silly show, Manswers. They wouldn't interview real gamers. Probably frag dolls.

    I was a huge G4 fan back in the day, having actually watched since TechTV. I watched AOTS and X-Play daily, using the two as my primary source for gaming and tech news. With the internet being as common as it is today, there really is no need for a dedicated gaming/tech TV channel. That said, it is still sad to see them go. I wish all the people who worked there the best and hope they continue on in the gaming medium.

    I used to love G4 several years ago. Would be watching something daily. Too bad cause I liked the G4 of old.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.
