In many ways, Geoff Keighley is GameTrailers. After almost a decade however, it looks like Keighly has departed the company.
Interesting news. Look forward to hearing what the Dorito Pope is up to next.
He was last seen commenting on the 2:1 sales gap between PS4 and Xbox. http://n4g.com/news/1718796... May his next piece of wisdom, guide us all...
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! http://www.nooooooooooooooo... Geoff Keighley at GameTrailers was the one constant in the business. What will we do now?
Oh no, how will we all go on without staring into his dead eyes.
That dude always looked high.
Apparently he's hosting the Sony E3 Playstation Experience event. Just posted
Kojima kidnapped keighley
I actually liked his role with GTTV. Good luck with future plans.
So was I. I watch bonus round every week. Since the new owners took over gametrailers.com last year after e3,they let go of half their talent and a bunch walked away. Maybe he's on his way to join Marcus Beer and Shane Satterfield on their new website "sifted games"
What's the process for appointing a new Dorito Pope?
Something with nacho cheese smoke
At least a Bachelor's Degree.
more like Dorito-chelor 's Degree in Cheese.
Maybe Sony bought them, seem to be buying everything else. COD/Ass Creed/Star Wars
Funny enough....look who wrote the article.. http://blog.us.playstation....
you burn a bag of doritos and if you get white smoke, not black, then you're the new dorito pope?
Well, they must be able to shill graciously. A Dorito Pope also needs to have great rapport with both peasants and publishers. The Dorito Pope will eat the Doritos and drink thy Dew, and must be able to convince the masses to do the same during double XP weekends. Few are capable of being worthy to don the Dorito hat, but for those that meet that standard may the paid reviews and free swag guide their way.
Whatever he does next, I bet his first guest will be Hideo Kojima.
In full bandages, of course.
Bandages? Kojima tried to eat this kid's doritos? https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@Imalwaysright - you apparently didn't see the epic Phantom Pain interview before it was officially MGSV. I laughed so hard when Geoff pointed out the Fox Engine logo.
There is a God
I'm fine with Keighley not being with GT anymore. Brandon Jones is Gametrailers for me.
Bossman is the reason why I come back. Brandon is pretty cool though too.
Bosman for me as well. Brandon is ok. Huber is pretty funny, too. Can't stand bloodworth.
Brandon is a cool guy but I always enjoyed Keighley.
Wow, I haven't looked at the GameTrailers site in a long time.
Yea, they became kind of irrelevant when Youtube arrived. I'm surprised the site still exists.
I go to GT regularly. Personally, they are the only VG personalities I can tolerate. I know a lot of people say GT has gone downhill since Viacom sold them, and when Shane Shatterfield/Michael Patcher left, but I like how GT is more "open" now. They are more sillier, that I cannot deny, but they still do a good job with getting content.
It wasn't the viacom ownership that pushed me away. I still use the site from time to time, but I never use it like I did before they killed the forums and adopted that dog awful video player.
A bit torn on that one. As a host itself he is quite good and I enjoyed him as a host. Much rather listen ti him talk compared to guys at Gamespot or IGN. On the other hand he hypes stuff like announcements into high heavens and they tend to fall short and of course some PR slip ups like Doritos.
The game awards was a hit, i hope we see a strong second run this year. He gets a lot of flack but after that i know he is about the games. Looking foward to whatever is next for the pope.
If by hit you mean a profitable venture for advertisers then yes its a smashing success.
He should do his own thing. Overhypes everything but his previews are well made
Who cares?? That dude who does their video reviews is all they need(forgot his name). He always reviews a game from an objective perspective without any agenda which has become increasingly rare these days. He should get a promotion.
I wonder where the hype train will drop him off next.
what does this mean for their E3 coverage?
Hope so, worst person on Earth. Totally disrespectful in interviews and extremely rude and arrogant. Hope he leaves gaming.
I was wondering when someone would say something like this. I bet you've seen Angry Joe's attempt to interview him in the VGAs a couple years back right?
"Worst person on earth".. Wow.
Someone needs to tell Times magazine so they add him to the 100 worst people on earth list. I'm sure some African war lord or human trafficking head will be disappointed to lose their #1 spot.
I was under the impression he was employed directly by Viacom. Viacom sold off GameTrailers and killed off their SpikeTV show, so I don't see why they'd want to keep in.
i have no idea who this person is.
Defy media strikes again?
I was/am a huge fan of the GT site for its countdowns, reviews, retrospects and other content. I'm not surprised in the least if its true. The whole GT site has been getting trimmed with less original content more "sofa chats" than ever. They've lost a handful of the stronger personalities with only a few solid ones left. I think losing Bossman would be the saddest part if the site goes away from original content.
I'm looking forward to another "battle of the bands" skit and the epic bets between Kyle and Huber!
I heard Sony is hiring him to build the next Playstation.
You shouldn't say things like that.
GTTV don't even come on tv anymore. We don't got no video game show on tv no more. Will seem him at e3 as his last GTTV appearance.
"Bonus Round" was the best show at Game Trailers. Maybe he is going to hook up with Michael Pachter again.
He was a great presenter, I could listen to him with ease. Best of luck with you new endeavours Geoff.
getting hired by MS?!
Bloody hell, Gametrailers still exists?
Geoff Keighley never seemed interested in anything he was reporting on. Glad to see him moving on to something else. It's time to usher in a new generation of folks to report information within the game industry.
Finally. No more stupid megaton announcement twitter posts for the vga's. Fuck*** clown.
Cant stand him, comes over has a major brown noser, maybe he is kissing ass at another company.
He was a MS fanboy...And did not hide that fact...and there is nothing wrong with that...
THANK YOU GOD!!! Never liked this dude because of his arrogance.
I'm finding Game Trailers seems to be going downhill. Too much bad chat without any real news or substance IMO
