To go and say that Gerstmann wasn't the reason why you started following GameSpot is like saying asking if you like eating a grill-cheese sandwich on a Sunday afternoon isn't a good pick up line for woman at a bar. How I first discovered Gerstmann was when he guest hosted Attack of the Show back when G4 was good in 2005 (Here's Gerstmann's old blog about it). The week prior to that, Sean Baby guest hosted the show, so for two weeks of Attack of the Show you got Sean Baby one week, then Gerstmann the next; a great deal for those who have sexual fantasies about both people.
When Sean Baby's hosting duties was up, then came in Gerstmann - that big, tall, John Candy looking mothafucka while sporting his red track suit. First thing he said that he's Jeff Gerstmann and he's from a web site call GameSpot (I never heard of it). Seeing how I didn't know anything about Gerstmann, I thought he was fucking boring at the time, he wasn't really at his best. But the guest hosting thing wasn't the only GameSpot/G4 related thing, other GameSpot editors took over the show Cinematech, and that's where I was first introduced to Ryan (the MacDonald version), Ryan (the Davis version), and the all mighty powerful Greg Kasavin.
The we all know what happens next, and then GiantBomb happens. Gerstmann for some time has not been as entertaining as he once was in his GameSpot days. I can't really recall a really funny Gerstmann moment recently on GiantBomb. The content he has provided on Giantbomb just isn't as good as the content he provided on GameSpot. I think less of Gerstmann than I did back in the glory days. Sometimes I would listen to classic HotSpot - the Rich Gallup era - on YouTube and realize how great Gerstmann was. IS there any good moments on GiantBomb? Ummmmmm. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Okay, uh, that quick look on Tony Hawk Shred, that was awesome. . . .but that happen like nearly a year ago.
