Fake.

#5 Posted by Marz (5648 posts) -

that playstation all stars review really got to him i guess.

#6 Edited by LikeaSsur (1513 posts) -

This is precisely why we're not allowed to use Wikipedia as a source in papers.

Whoa, thanks for the verification. I was about to start the memorial before I saw your post.

Well, he was on twitter 9 hours ago. Remember kids, don't drive and tweet. Some livestock might run out and try to kill you.

#8 Posted by TooWalrus (13169 posts) -

I'm sure if Jeff was dead he would have mentioned it on twitter.

#9 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5144 posts) -

Time to update the date of death on his Giant Bomb page.

Please refrain from spreading info of troll edits on wikipedia, it has been seen to.

#12 Posted by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

I'm guessing he was so desperate to find people to play Syndicate with yesterday that he was willing to drive to Tennessee to meet them...

#13 Posted by Mcfart (1610 posts) -

Shit like this is why schools don't let wikipedia be a source

#14 Posted by Ghostiet (5250 posts) -

If Jeff's been killed off by the Internet, he is officially a celebrity now.

#15 Posted by LiquidPrince (15912 posts) -

I actually got upset clicking on this link. That's a stupid prank.

But guys... What if he's really dead!

Also, this was hilarious.

Death

At approximately 8:30 PM on November 25, 2012, Gerstmann was pronounced dead in a Tennessee hospital. His vehicle is reported to have collided with a tree on the side of I-55 as a result of swerving to avoid some livestock escaped from a local farm

If this turns into a meme, I might just have to find a new site.

This quote made the thread worth reading.

Maybe Brad won't leave now that Jeff is dead.

If anyone is writing a paper about Jeff, I want to read it.

Oh troll Wikipedia edits, how you continue to be unfunny. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that Jeff is immortal.

#24 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2686 posts) -

When I was like 15 I used to take the Star Wars Wikipedia page (considerable length), run it through babelfish to translate it to German, and then translate it back from German to English and re-post it.

It seemed funny at the time.

Some time past, in place far away...

#25 Posted by Laurentech (127 posts) -

@FizzleNizzleBear: Haha. Based on my experience in Tennessee, that's entirely plausible.

I'm thinking of the ways people could run this into the ground. It's terrifying.

Well it was nice knowing you guys, with Jeff's passing and Brad leaving to IGN I guess it's par for the course.

#28 Posted by alternate (2696 posts) -

It was suicide. he just could not get over losing Spanner to that Fox. RIP Jeff and Spanner.

Don't worry, Leigh Alexander's coming to fill in for them. She's loud enou... Fuck, I can't do this, I can't become what I fight.

What? Are you thinking Brad orchestrated the whole thing? That's SICK, man... but probably true.

#32 Edited by TruthTellah (8805 posts) -

This makes me wonder... what if a murderer setup Wikipedia edits of people dying before it happened, only to make sure it did happen exactly as described?

The Wikipedia Killer! Oh no, Jeff!

This is the user responsible

I've reported him to the Wikipedia admins.

Dude, no one likes a Wikipedia narc.

If there is a way to truly win a thread, you've certainly discovered it.

#35 Posted by RedCream (704 posts) -

Say it ain't so

#36 Posted by MikeFightNight (1109 posts) -

If anything was going to kill him I thought for sure it would be the raid. Crossing my fingers for a resurrection.

I do. The guy responsible for this deserves to die. I´m serious.

Even threatening Jeffs well being in the most remote, virtual, nonsensical way = a ticket to the slaughterhouse. You have all been warned.

Is it confirmed whether that local farm was funky or not?

#39 Posted by Village_Guy (2546 posts) -

Disgusting, simply disgusting.

Funky barn?

Why would anyone do this if it's not true?

Guess you can say he was stumped.

What if some other Jeff Gerstmann did really crash into a tree and die huh?
#47 Posted by Superfriend (1545 posts) -

I don´t care about any fake Jeff Gerstmanns out there. They may live and die as they please.

But this wikipedia scumbag is on my hitlist.

#48 Posted by Stimpack (850 posts) -

I hope all the Jeff Gerstmanns of the world are okay.

#49 Posted by FLStyle (4665 posts) -

@iAmJohn: @BlastProcessing: No regrets, The Man has paid me well.
