The experienced editor leaves GameSpot following Frank Provo, Jeff Gerstmann and other.
... If either Brad Shoemaker or Ryan Davis leave next... that is it for me, lol. My favorite writers will be gone and Gamespot will have to looking for new talent both in writing and on broadcasting. You know, they will probably have some openings now. =)
Cnet is to blame for all of this.
Read Franks blog after he left and how what score games get are now being picked as to not tick off marketing.
I expect more to leave.
PS: I hope they all go to the same place because they are all good reviewers who are clearly standing up them selfs even at the cost of there jobs.
I dont believe that. Man, I feel like Gamespot has finally fallen. Good luck replacing the only really good editor at that company. Sorry guys. Oh well, he will actually be able to get a job really fast I bet.
ya know gamespot has turned into lamespot the reviewers even if they seemed biased just a little at times they where all awesome.
his blog http://www.theheadofalfredo... read under where it says about the author jeff had a link to this on his blog.
Another one bites the dust.
GameSpot, way to dig your own grave, this is just another nail in the coffin.
...the GameSpot editors left and created their own videogame website. That way they wouldn't be tied down by CNET.
I would stay far from that site as possible. GS is shyte and it's employees are what made the site. IF they make their own site it'll be shyte anti-(whatever console is on the recieving end of our sponsor's competition) crap too.
That's it. My fave game reviewer / journalist is leaving GameSpot. GS was done long ago but I did check it every now and then... but it is done now.
Good luck to Alex Navarro.
I think GS lost their credibility a long time ago, whether it was because of the Ratchet and Clank review or the Kane & Lynch fiasco. Navarro leaving only cements this. In fact the only good reviewer left, in my opinion, is Kevin Van Ord.
I'll continue to visit the site though principally because of its forums.
I suspect Gamespot to be finished really really soon.
Oh please, GS will hire others and gamers will like them and the smae ones claiming current editors are the best will be the smae ones saying their crap compared to the new ones.
Gmaers are just way too gulible for GS to go down like that.
They're all frikgen losers. They all need to leave.
