Thats a real shame as to me atleast GT had the simplest, cleanest and no nonsense reviews out there.

I really enjoyed the GT Retrospectives. Someone needs to archive it all before it's gone.

Heart-breaking news. Probably my most used games site and I spent years active on the forums :'(

Awful news. Sad day for gaming sites overall. They cared more about making unique and fun content over being a glorified gaming news feed. GT will be missed.

Gametrailers had been my favorite place for years, not only for their reviews, but also for their shows. Going to miss them big time :(
