Boycott Gamespot advertisers

Well the fall out from this Gamespot ordeal is just starting to gain momentum.

While most people have just decided to stop using Gamespot (myself included) some people are taking it that one step further. They are trying to organise a consumer boycott of every product that is advertised on Gamespot.

Which at this very moment is…. Absolutely no one, that right the only person currently advertising on the front page of Gamespot is Cnet.co.uk (Gamespots parents company)

So do you think all this negative attention has scared away the advertisers? Personally I hope so. Once people stop trusting online reviews it becomes bad for all of us.

In lighter news, please head on over to www.destructoid.com and take a look at their new banner. Personally I think their parody of the Gamepot website (header) is absolutely brilliant.

    Internet mob justice in action – no one really knows what the true story is, but they’re not letting that stop them from storming Gamespot’s gates with pitchforks and torches and all.

    Personally i think a lot of sites do this, i just think that other sites have reviewers who are more accomodating to their employers needs and who wish to keep their jobs. I have never trusted these so called professional reviewers. Just think about how this also affects the Metacritic scores, which is taken as gospel by many.

    Bob may be correct and his firing may have nothing to do with his review, but i still think this sort of thing is going on all over the place.

  • I agree, I used to love gamespot…. now i just see them as a fake reviewer riding a gravy train…all while they are fooling us gamers
