I feel bad for everyone that was laid off but if I were to be completely honest I kinda fell off Gametrailers a while ago. I still liked their stuff but I just never really got into it. I really like Brandon Jones and I'm sure he'll find a solid job pretty quickly.
I hope this is real. I'm in the minority but I didn't like Bloodborne as much as the three Souls games.
You aren't in the minority.
I think that depends. I haven't spoken to anyone who likes DS2 better than Bloodborne. At the same time, I think everyone slots Bloodborne behind DS1 and Demon's Soul in some order. That is way more open to personal preference. I just don't think I haven't met anyone who disagrees with Dark Souls 2 being the weakest of the bunch.
I actually liked Dark Souls II more than Bloodborne. It lacks the level design of the other games but I loved exploring that world so much. I didn't really like Bloodborne's world.
