DEFY Media has decided to shut down GameTrailers.

GT Time, Final Bosman and their video reviews were amazing. Going to miss them. :frown:

What?? No, why?? That's so sudden =/

I'm really starting to think there's a curse on 2016, there's no other explanation.

GT & Danial Bryan in 1 day, that Broncos win came at a cosmic cost.

Game Trailers closing down.

Sorry sorry sorry if this is in teh wrong forum! My apologies to the mods if it is.

But Zephyr has been tweeting about this, and I just saw a article on this..here.

I am kinda sad to see them go, I really liked the explanation series they did for KH (With KHI, of course) before KH3 and hope that it can be saved on Youtube or something.. I understand they did a timeline too.

Rest in peace, is all i can say, and i hope KHI will have a alternative method to continue that series (youtube, perhaps?) if it becomes necessary. ^^

Re: RIP GameTrailers

Well....on the upside, Gametrailers had THE WORST gaming community out there, bar none. Even IGN’s smorgasbord of twats couldn’t compare. The stuff on their comments and forums sections was the sort of stuff that gave you brain tumors after a single read.

But on the downside, out go all the originals and features. ....When you think about it, we never did get that Zelda or Metal Gear Timeline series... :(

EDIT: You know, this should probably be posted on the front page since KHI had some significant collaborations with GT.

Re: RIP GameTrailers

I'll never forget that GameTrailers is where I witnessed KH2 and Advent Children for the first time.

Re: RIP GameTrailers

good night sweet prince

Always loved some of their shows like Pop Fiction, not to mention they were early on the scene when the internet was this hot new thing. Brandon Jones, the guy that always voiced stuff on GT, was always one of my favorites as well.

Re: RIP GameTrailers

They're being mum on that for the moment. I'm kinda curious as to the reason as well.
Money. The site was making practically no revenue with visits shambling way down. If you recall, it was bought up by another company a couple of years ago, but they essentially made nothing back on their investment.

To put it simply, the site had outlived its usefulness. Once upon a time, Gametrailers was the place for game trailers. Now, with Youtube and Twitch, it's become horribly irrelevant and outdated.

A story way too common. :< I used to work for a site (professionally, mind you!) that suffered the same fate.

I figured as much. Sad to see such a legendary site gone down this way.
