    I'm sure you all could care less, but I e-mailed The Spot (GameSpot's letters section) and they posted and responded to my question. I asked them why they didn't review games (specific example I used was HALO) and mention things like High Def, DD5.1, etc. since the new HTGaming site (being made by Romier) was made because sites like GameSpot don't include info about more technical things in their reviews.
    If you want to check it out, here's the link:

    I assume that it will change (probably tomorrow) to:

    Thier response reinforces exactly why I am creating HTgaming.com. In the end us Home Theater fanatics are the minority and I can understand them not catering to us "little" people but neglecting this information really makes it difficult for poeple like you and me to get the information we want.
    Oh well. Fine by me. In about a month or two we'll have a haven to get that information[​IMG].

    Hey Morgan, I KNEW that was you! I read that letter first thing this morning, and I said to myself...that sounds an awful lot like our own Morgan Jolley. [​IMG]
    Well written as always, man. Way to give the HT gamers a shout-out!

    "I am lucky enough to have a home theater to play video games on. It's my Dad's hobby, and he is really into it"

    Thats what gave it away to me. The Famous Scootplex rides again! Congratulations Morgan; good points all round there. As for the 'it improves all games equally' reply well. Err. No, obviously.

    Finally, aah... poor lickle baby lost his plasma screen. A brief mention of the blimmin' specs wouldn't hurt would it?

    The thing that really made me want to write the e-mail was when I noticed that their Halo review didn't mention AT ALL the DD5.1 in real-time or anything else. Its one thing for them not to review the 5.1, but to not mention it at all is just wrong.

    Thank god for Romier and HTGaming.com

    Good job, Morgan! I too, have always been impressed with your attention to detail in your posts (no mispellings, typos, and so forth). You are head and shoulders above most of your peers.

    Thanks for all the compliments. I like to post letters to them in order to make sure that someone there knows what they're talking about and isn't just looking for info about release dates.
