It was my number one place for discovering videogame news but, personally, I feel it has lowered its standards and now often publishes stuff with the sole intent of creating controversy and seeking attention. I guess, as it is a news and reviews outlet, there is nothing wrong with it taking that line if it wants to.
The quality of Eurogamer's fallen off a cliff pretty much since Tom left. Some of the reviews/reviewers really aren't good, and combined with other editorial and design decisions, it's somewhere I also visit less and less.
They've certainly, urgh, pivoted to more personality based content but there's still a lot of good stuff there. I find the reviews are generally of high quality, and Chris Bratt's "Here's A Thing" investigative stuff is second only to Danny O'Dwyer's Noclip IMO:
Since them an RPS went under that Gamer Network thing they've both gone a bit funny. There's still quality content, but it's now muddled in with loads of rubbish. 'Here's a thing' is indeed very good, though.
