I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed this, lately whenever I hear Jeff commenting something or doing a quicklook I want to stop watching the video.

His whole approach to any game now seems completely jaded, disinterested, lazy, by the book, sterile, not seeing the forest for the trees thing. The entirety of his added value now is nothing but a predictable redundant burden.

Just take a look at his latest Ghost Recon: Future Soldier quicklook, it's been like that for quite a while now.

It's nothing personal but I think he's been in the gaming industry for too long.

Weak troll guy

You are about to feel a whole world of hate.

I don't watch him, so I don't care. Each to their own I say.

Yes.

Should you be fired, out of a cannon, in to the Sun?

@Zol: Fire the guy who is the backbone of Giantbomb?

You seriously have issues.

Jeff for president.

Wait for his Kane&Lynch 3 review!

#10 Posted by Jams (2961 posts) -

I think it would actually be hilarious. Of course I'd feel bad but the irony would be too much to handle.

#11 Posted by Grixxel (766 posts) -

And now let there be no replies after this one, so that the thread dies the shameless death it deserves.

I detest trolling. I think that whole sub culture of self entitled 4-channers is a shining beacon in the case for humanity to go extinct. Like if aliens were to come down and we'd be like "we have Ghandi and poetry" and the aliens would be like '4-chan/trolling" and I'd be like "Fair point I welcome our extermination." But, I have come to terms with it. Trolling is just a part of the internet now, I get it. All I ask is at least be original or put some effort into being a dick. Don't we on the receiving end deserve at least that much?

Enjoy your trip to the Sun with the Murder Slingshot.

Ah, I was much too optimistic to expect such level of mental acuity from this lot.

@Zol: So you want Jeff, to fire himself from his own website?

WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU!?!

You should be fired from life

#21 Posted by Jimbo (9814 posts) -

I haven't been paying attention lately, but a lot of the shit being put out deserves that level of contempt.

I wasn't around at the time. but I did enjoy reading your thread about the "Go To Church" sign. That was hilarious. Thanks for the laughs. Methinks this shall end the same way. I don't even like Jeff. I think he his fratboy humour is stupid. But dude, many people love him and that is all that matters. You don't offend people with this stuff, you amuse the hell out of them. At least in that way, you serve a purpose.

Oh no, not one of those troll-troll idiocy again, people who dismiss everything they don't like as trolling, thinking that is the most easiest way to neutralize something.

#26 Edited by IAmNotBatman (645 posts) -

Yes, Jeff should be fired for his lack of interest in games he is not very interested in. You'd make a great company executive! I say Zol for president! That's what you're doing this for right? To beat Jeff in the election?

Edit: WTF it won't let me "un-bold" this post...

#27 Posted by Kaiserreich (699 posts) -

@Zol: Sorry to disappoint, clearly you are far smarter than us! Run from this den of stupidity and don't come back!

#28 Posted by jimmyfenix (3855 posts) -

what a moron this guy is. jeff has been having personal problems for the past couple of months and has been working at the same time so its not the best of times for him. and this arsehole wants to fire him ? go eat a dick

HA! Taking it to the next level.

I imagine you, sitting there in all your intellectual glory, typing up this thread thinking to yourself, "You know what, I'm gonna start something. Enough is enough. Too long has Jeff GerstMANN sullied Giant Bomb with his bitter ways. Too long has he INFECTED Quick Looks with his world-weary attitude and depressing tones. I want to see Brad blossom the way that only I know is possible. I'm sorry, but Jeff Gerstmann MUST be fired. I know everyone's thinking it, but no one's brave enough to say it. I will be that man. I will be the one to lead this revolution. CBSi will have no choice. Forum users will smash down the doors, tie up the execs and strap down Gerstmann. We won't leave until our demands are met. It's us or him. So long Gerstmann... you had your chance."

#30 Posted by SmilingPig (1337 posts) -

Hell yes he needs to get fired, drink for one strait week, start a video games and energy drink podcast called the Arrow pointing down... It’s like I can see the future.

#31 Posted by AndrewB (7621 posts) -

Yes. I think Jeff should fire himself. His views differ from mine and that threatens me and my opinion of this website.

#32 Posted by DeF (4893 posts) -

@Zol: do you honestly expect a rational discussion to emerge from this question?

seriously?

#33 Posted by Redsox44 (482 posts) -

@Zol: Blasphemy!! He'll be much more excited about games again after E3 and with all the new games coming out at the end of the year. But how could you even suggest such a thing?!

You sir may be the final boss of Giantbomb. I'm going to go get more gear so I'm ready to face you.

It's not about his views differing from mine but his whole attitude when talking about any game.

#38 Posted by pw2566ch (480 posts) -

I agree that he's not the best journalist out there. As much as I don't like him, I think firing him would be too far. Either they should give him quicklooks that he's more interested in or maybe he shouldn't be doing any videos. Maybe he reached that mid-life crisis point.

Yes, if not fired give him textual reviews to do. It is easy to circumvent his lousy attitude that way.

#42 Posted by laserbolts (5322 posts) -

I don't think he should be fired but I do agree that he is a negative dude when it comes to most video games. I don't think he should be reviewing games but it doesn't really matter to me anyways.

#43 Posted by Redsox44 (482 posts) -

@Zol: Tough shit. I came to this site because I was following Jeff, and this site wouldn't exist without him. If he wants to be negative about some games so be it, you can go to any other game site if it bothers you that much. Maybe if you were a subscriber I could understand, but only maybe.

This just in, I freaking love Jeff's Quick Looks.

OH GOD DIFFERENT OPINIONS!

#46 Posted by sonic_hedg3hog (1 posts) -

Yes jeff is too offensive to many anime watchers, also known as his stereotype of Asians by saying they jerk. I love anime, believe me, I'm not a loser. to tell the truth, there be many other people's alot of fucking sick, tired of his dog feces. Jeff does not know the people know that he insult, stop the anime hate. He makes anime luvers feel insucure. If you do not have the fine ofthe interracial transition zone, but shut your fucking face, jeff.

Oh no what happened did he call the newest Zelda game a game for f***ts? Or even worse....did he score it too low? Fire his ass!

#49 Posted by Seastalk (123 posts) -

I can sum up Zol in one uninventive word: sterile.

#50 Posted by Zol (60 posts) -

You can't really ignore him if you want to. I would do that if he was the only one doing a quicklook and I saw his name in the description but many times he is given highly anticipated games and is with another person who is far more agreeable, like Brad, Vinnie or Patrick.

It would really be best if he would not do video-type things where you can hear his voice at all. At least not until he fixes his lousy attitude.
