Aaron Thomas responds to people's question about Jeff.
I like girls with big asses.
lol lol me too
updated with the link to the petition!!!
now you can do something, the editor's box will be flooded, LETS DO THIS GAMERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
same guys who slammed ratchet giving it a 7 when it deserved at least an 8.5 and slammed other games because they either hated the games or they weren't in a genre they like......
I agree. Aaron Thomas is the beginning of Gamespot's problems as far as I'm concerned. He's the reason I won't resubscribe to Gamespot when my current subscription expires. I really blame Jeff Gerstmann for that whole fiasco too so I don't care about him being fired. I'll take it as he just wasn't doing his job anymore and Gamespot is cleaning house. Funny how everyone sees his firing as being from his bad review of Kane & Lynch. It could have been coming for a while now and people are jumping to a conclusion. Gamespot is known now as a site you don't respect their reviews. Jeff Gerstmann was in charge of all that.
That's it ! 2 Old-school employees leaving Gamespot + Gamespot no more reliable + People hate this website = Bye Gamespot ! Fetish to money ?
.. sadly there are still morons in the community that'll still support GS no matter what.
? gamestop is cool I like them for their harsh reviews.
theres a thin line between being harsh and being bias..

P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
Dude wtf you looking at your sister O_O like that
You pimping out your Sis? O.o
These are people. =/ Human beings with lives. Screaming yay @ their careers experiencing problems is inhuman and pathetic. I don't care if they give mgs4 a 1/10 they still are people and don't deserve to be in fear of getting fired and having people hope they do.
SHOWS HOW MUCH HE'S WILLING TO WHORE OUT TO SAVE HIS JOB
TOO MUCH WHORING
OVERALL: 1.5/10,YOU'RE ABYSMAL AARON,A-B-Y-S-M-A-L!
I give your review 10 out of 10.
Aaron Thomas is the last ANAL LEAK I'm gonna listen to. I mean, the last! I hate that guy already, stupid ass [email protected]
Couldn't have said it better myself. Gamespot is scrambling like mad for anything, any sympathy. How pathetic; well 'UCK 'em - 'uck 'em all!
I was thinking the exact same word...
He's the last of those people I would listen to, and they send HIM out?
Can someone say "Sent to die" (figuratively, not death threat.)
I dont have social security number, but i c ould send u some tacos and burritos from tijuana mx.
now you can do something about it, gamers!!!
sign and lets get gamespot kicked off for good!!!!!!
this will go up on 100+ safelists, email it everywhere, pass it on....spread it and I guarantee you the editor's inbox will be filled. ITS TIME TO SPEAK OUT AS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
....i admit.....i've always disliked gerstmann, but it was the culture of gamespot that made him that way and he was only doing what he was told....he also told the others to do what they were told including thomas.........
....the glowing ace combat reviews, having ratchet & clank get thrashed, so many other obvious little initiatives here and there that you all wanted to think was conspiracy.....
no its very real....its been going on for years, I bet sony called up the team at gamespot and talked to josh larsen who doesn't know much anyway and b****** like hell about the ratchet reviews...
I sure know I would if I was a company like that.....and then someone from the competition probably called up and praised the review, throwing some more dollars his way....
...bottom line is josh larsen talks about "tone" of reviews and pretends to be making things better by getting rid of the problems, but really he is a fool who's making things worse....
...the "tone" of reviews is going to spiral out of control, thats the bottom line.
as long as big money is involved, these reviewers at gamespot and 1up can be paid to "SCORE" a game however they want it....
instead of maybe the average 9 it deserves, or 7 score that it deserves for being good.
....think about this.....
no matter what happens, you can no longer rely on their reviews....
you know its true.....josh larsen was only a symptom of the problem, the real problem is all the publisher clients from microsoft to sony are playing "gimme hat" with the money in order to receive....
RAVE REVIEWS AND HAVE SOMEONE TRASH THE COMPETITION'S GAMES
now check all their games you know its true, tony hawk pro skater 3?
TONY HAWK never deserved a 10, it was another payoff PERIOD, and someone got millions in free advertising dollars and a paid vacation to score TONY HAWK A PERFECT TEN WHILE THEY GAVE LESS THAN AN 8 TO SEGA SPORTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...you don't understand what this means I'm guessing....
this means, Sony can call up Gamespot anytime to get a bad review pulled down or send some free incentives their way to trash Microsoft's games.....
and they probably already have...
this means that Microsoft can call up Gamespot anytime to pull down a bad review, or send some nice incentives to trash the other guy's games and I bet they already have....
this means, Activision, Eidos, Ubisoft and others who have probably been doing it for years.....can call up Gamespot anytime....and tell them to either go ballistic on their competitor's game or give their own game a glowing review....by throwing incentives that way.
in short, this means the end of unbiased video gaming JOURNALISM!!!!!!
GAMESPOT has exposed OUR REVIEW SYSTEM, TO BE A TOTAL SHAM!!!!!!!!
VIDEO GAME JOURNALISM JUST WENT DOWN THE TUBES......ONLY WE HAVE THE POWER TO BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this could be good news or bad news for GS
because all this publicity is bound to lead to more hits for the website, but at the same time, once people realize how sh!te the website is, they won't go there again, which will lead to advertisers not spending their money there
anyways, i don't care for Aaron either
Aaron is the guy that so many people hate because of his R&C review.
thats the last fatty i am listening to. him giving a low score to R&C shows hes a moron. f*cking dumb reviews and f*cking corrupt website.
I definitely disagreed with their Ratchet review. I just don't know what game they were playing, because it's not what I was playing.
gamespot should not be listed in metacritic or gamerankings for their actions on R&C and other games that didnt deserve the scores they got out of that stupid site
I blame Insomniac for the bad review of R&CF. Why didn't they just throw in a bunch of sports minigames? Then Aaron Thomas would have loved the game and give it a 10.
By the way, I'm joking. Aaron is a tool.
gamespot articles are still approved on this site?
Lets send a real message to the GameSpot, lets get it kicked off the metacritic rankings once and for all !!!!
350+ of us and climbing, the time is now !!! http://www.petitiononline.c...
It will be delivered to the head editor and we will get it removed !!
No matter what system you own you know shady reviews can't continue !!!
Tell everyone to boycott DELL which is GAMESPOT' biggest sponsor !!
