History

In January 1996, Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein quit their positions at IDG and founded SpotMedia Communications. SpotMedia then launched GameSpot on May 1, 1996. Originally, GameSpot focused solely on privatecomputer games, so a sister site, VideoGameSpot, was launched on December 1, 1996. Eventually VideoGameSpot, then renamed VideoGames.com, was merged into GameSpot. In February 1999, PC Magazine named GameSpot one of the hundred best domain, alongside competitors IGN and CNET Gamecenter. The following year, The FreshYork Times declared GameSpot and Gamecenter the "Time and Newsweek of gaming page".

On October 3, 2005, GameSpot adopted a freshdesign similar to that of TV.com, now considered a sister pageto GameSpot.

A freshlayout modifywas adopted in October 2013.

International history

GameSpot UK (United Kingdom) was started in October 1997 and operated until mid-2002, offering materialthat was oriented for the British market that often differed from that of the U.S. site. During this period, GameSpot UK won the 1999 PPAi (Periodical Publishers Association interactive) award for best website, and was short listed in 2001. Following the purchase of ZDNet by CNET, GameSpot UK was merged with the main US site. On April 24, 2006, GameSpot UK was relaunched.

In a similar fashion, GameSpot AU (Australia) existed on a local scale in the late 1990s with Australian-produced reviews. It ceased in 2003. When a local version of the main CNET portal, CNET.com.au was launched in 2003, GameSpot AU materialwas folded into CNET.com.au. The pagewas fully re-launched in mid-2006, with a specialized forum, local reviews, special features, local pricings in Australian dollars, Australian release dates, and more local fresh.

Gerstmann dismissal

Jeff Gerstmann, editorial director of the site, was fired on November 28, 2007. Immediately after his termination, rumors circulated proclaiming his dismissal was a effectof external pressure from Eidos Interactive, the publisher of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, which had purchased a considerable amount[clarification needed] of advertising zoneon GameSpot's website. Gerstmann had previously given Kane & Lynch a fair or undesirable rating along with critique. Both GameSpot and parent company CNET stated that his dismissal was unrelated to the review, but due to corporate and legal constraints could not reveal the reason. A month after Gerstmann's termination, freelance reviewer Frank Provo left GameSpot after eight years, stating that "I trustCNET management allowJeff go for all the wrong reasons. I trustCNET intends to soften the pages tone and push for higher scores to make advertisers happy."

GameSpot staffers Alex Navarro, Ryan Davis, Brad Shoemaker, and Vinny Caravella also left as a effectof Gerstmann's termination. Davis co-founded Gerstmann's subsequent project, Giant Bomb, and was later joined by Shoemaker and Caravella. Navarro became the community manager at Harmonix and in 2010 joined with Whiskey Media, a family of page that contain Gerstmann's Giant Bomb site, to be part of their freshpagescreened.com, focusing on cinema and television. Navarro later returned to Giant Bomb, where he worked as a senior editor.

On March 15, 2012, it was announced that CBS Interactive, the parent organizationof GameSpot operator CNET, had acquired the Giant Bomb and Comic Vine domain from Whiskey Media. As part of the deal, the non-disclosure agreement between Gerstmann and CNET was nullified, allowing him to finally speak publicly about his termination over four years prior. Later that evening on GameSpot's On the Spot web show, GameSpot VP John Davison appeared on camera with Gerstmann, marking Gerstmann's first appearance on the GameSpot domainsince November 2007. In the segment, Gerstmann revealed that his firing was in fact associatedto the low review score he had given to Kane & Lynch, though his explanation cited other similar happening that led up to the termination, including a 7.5 (good) rating given to Ratchet & Guild Future: Tools of Destruction by Aaron Thomas, then an employee under Gerstmann.

GameSpot moderators are picked by paid GameSpot staff from members of the GameSpot utilize community.
