Did you even read the whole page?

No, GameFAQs really hasn't been shut down by some crazed group of video game developers insisting you spend hours plowing through their games without any help. It's an April Fool's Day joke. The real home page is still right here, or you can just wait 60 seconds for it to pop up all by itself.

Probably the best online April Fools joke I have seen so far...

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

I think anyone with a level head is just trying to ignore him, seems the only people who cares about what he says are angry teenagers.

I like how people were putting GameFAQ's down yesterday(2 days ago now I guess) because of the poll they had showing that like 70 percent of their fanbase still lives with their parents or whatever the % was and then today the truth comes out about how many people actually go on that site often. It was a nice try on their part though. It probably got that 70%, even if it was just for those 60 seconds.

Jack Thompson is like those people that go into chatrooms for the sole purpose of starting a childish argument. He literally acts like a child.

I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.
