It was a dream to work there, and I'm very proud of the work I did. I walk out alongside some colleagues I am honored and privileged to have worked with. And I will miss working with everyone at GS so much."

Gamespot died the instant Jeff Gerstman, Bradd Shoemaker, and Craig left the staff.

Wasn't a fan of 'Carolyn Petit' anyway but I feel for those out of work.

I feel sorry for the people who lost their jobs, but Gamespot is a shitty site, one of the worst by miles.
But layoffs are always sad...
