Banners should be left alone!

Many games have titles too long and big and sometimes take up the entire banner; for example :

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/game/37325/tales-of-monkey-island-chapter-4-the-trial-and-execution-of-guybrush-threepwood/

And :

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/game/36108/tales-of-monkey-island-chapter-1-launch-of-the-screaming-narwhal/

And :

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/game/48615/lego-pirates-of-the-caribbean-the-video-game/

The "Read the review" above the title doesn't help either =/.

And what's the point of having "read the review" on the banner when there is a review "box" linked image under the banner on the home page. There is also a review drop down menu from which one can select "gamrreview review" as well.

Still, the read the review is better than the entire title on the banner.

I am not sure if these changes were going to be included in the next update, so I thought of sharing my thoughts.

Thanks you for that! I wonder what type of threads you made before you were an admin? I will go find out!

I noticed that with some titles, but with the new site design coming up, who knows what it will look like.

Yeah it is a bit annoying with titles that are that long. But with shorter one's I don't mind.

As for "Read the review", I'm not with you, it meant to be obvious, giving the site the casual look and more views to the review, it should be there.

As for the titles, I totally agree, they shouldn't be on the banner , look :


Much better ^^, or at least go with a smaller font size like IGN http://ps3.ign.com/objects/092/092996.html

What sorcery is that 0_0 ??

If banners looked like that I wouldn't mind "read the review". It looks cool.

Ancestors' dark magic , come on it is Photoshop :p

With smaller font it works well even with super long titles :

one can only dream :p

-_- LOL I totally missed the FF 13 boxart. Good job on the photoshop.

This is exactly how I would want the banners to look like. Or like you said, reduce the font size, but that will still affect some games.

I would rather the title be written above the banner or below the banner.

I like the title of the game above the banner like that.
