What do I mean? Let's use Final Fantasy 7 as an example,

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ps/197341-final-fantasy-vii

In the past, the genre>subgenre would be displayed at the top of the page above the game's name, and the platforms it was available for would be displayed on the right under "game detail"

Now it's reversed, and I hate it. I have used Gamefaqs VERY extensively as my go-to video game database in order to research and compile games for every platform, for every genre, categorizing by sub-genre. The old page layout was FAR more visually efficient, and I was happy with it. This type of research is extremely time consuming as-is, but the changes will make this large scale research so daunting that I fear I'll give up where I am now, having to hunt for microscopic text hidden in a jumble of other text will add many hours of work, hours I don't have.

All I ask is an account option to allow me to revert to the old page layout. PLEASE, I beg you!

Yeah I'm personally not a fan of it either. Doubt this will be considered at all though, the site usually doesn't make options for stuff like this, and doesn't often go back on site changes. :/
See me on Discord! ^.^

This change just took the information that was already there and jumbled it into a less navigable format. I don't even care about the visual appearance of it, but now it's less efficient to browse.
