So Gerstmann is gone now, anyone here should know that. A lot of people (myself included) considered Jeff to be the best reviewer GameSpot had to offer. Now that he's gone, I really don't see any light being shined upon that site for quite some time, and even when it does, it won't make a difference. I was a member of GameSpot for almost 6 years (not that Total Access bullshit either) and they've always provided me with honest reviews that seem to filter out a lot of shit other reviewers didn't. I also met a lot people on their forums.
But, I'm sure we could reminisce about the good 'ol days for hours and not a damn thing is going to change. I don't know about anyone else but because of what C|Net has done, I canceled my GameSpot account and have made no plans to play Kyne & Lynch Dead Men. In fact, I wanted the game until I saw Jeff's review.
This is why I've decided to dedicate my first blog post to Jeff and all the honesty he's brought to gamers for years. Here's a couple of tributes I stumbled upon this morning on YouTube.
And of course, the famous review that GameSpot has removed from their site.
