That's too bad, never realized how badly some these sites are hurting.

I hope Kyle Bosman does his own thing. I think he can accomplish a lot on his own.

It was about time. I don't even remember the reason but I started boycotting GT about 3 years ago.

Boycotting? What did they do that got you upset?

I'm not that familar with the site but I was a visitor in the past.

That's a shame.
I stopped viewing their videos a while ago, but they were really enjoyable and were definitely one of the best websites for gaming videos until youtube took over.

Quite frankly, we just don't need many of these gaming sites. For news we have so many different sites and YouTube is one of the best resources for previews/reviews.

Its just the industry changing. Less opportunites to be a games journalist for a major website, but we see many people doing well on YouTube, news blogs, etc.

Sad day. Used to frequent the site for almost all my video game news, reviews, AVGN, HAWP and trailers of course. Probably been 4 or 5 years since I last really checked it out though. Times changing indeed.



Yeah like many I used to visit there a lot. But youtube killed it for me. Still it's a pity adblock is a thing. Their margins would rise significantly if it wasn't and they could probably have kept the doors open.

Still though, I think their downfall was not fully embracing youtube early on instead of seeing it as a competitor. They could easily have been pulling in 100k a month if they embraced it.
