Popular game blog deblogs itself, forgets that people like scrolling

I unsubscribed to Kotaku last year. Nice folks and all. It’s just their coverage became too esoteric for my liking and not as fun or game-focused as they used to be (same goes for Joystiq).

In any case, Kotaku launched a redesign yesterday. From a usability perspective, it’s horrible. Like a return to frames. Or a flash site that makes you scroll within frames as opposed to the entire browsing window. It’s bold, I’ll admit. But web users like scrolling. And this has unorthodox use of it. So my guess is traffic will decrease.

Either way, what do you think? And while we’re on the subject, what are some of your favorite gaming websites?
