This is awful.
I love GameTrailers. They're one corner of my mainstream gaming media Triforce, along with Kotaku and Eurogamer. They always came across as so honest and genuine.
This fucking sucks. GameTrailers reviews were... honestly the only mainstream video game reviews that I ever took seriously! I read other reviews to see what someone thinks - I watched a GameTrailers review to discover how good a game actually is - if that makes sense.
Their E3 coverage was second to none. It was amazing.

Spent so many wonderful years there working with some amazing people.
This is sad news.
