    Short summary describing this person.

    Jeff Gerstmann last edited by tds418 on 06/18/22 07:21PM View full history


    Jeff Gerstmann is a video game journalist from Petaluma, California. He is one of the co-founders of the video game website Giant Bomb, along with Ryan Davis and Dave Snider. Prior to co-founding Giant Bomb, Jeff worked at GameSpot for eleven years before being terminated in a highly publicized and controversial event on November 28, 2007, often referred to informally as "Gerstmanngate", though Jeff himself dislikes this term, as he strongly dislikes the trope of referring to controversies with the suffix "-gate".

    Jeff started working in video game journalism in the early 90s, doing freelance work as well as working for a print magazine for under a year. Jeff also did a few odd jobs before going to GameSpot, which included working as the guy who transported the film to movie theaters, and working at a movie theater. He has been on the outskirts of the game industry since he was 17. In 1996 Jeff got his start at GameSpot as an intern. Jeff's first credited review at GameSpot was for Tempest X3 for the Playstation. During his eleven years at GameSpot, Jeff worked with many people who have gone on to work for high-profile developers including Joe Fielder (Irrational Games), Erik Wolpaw (Valve), Amer Ajami (EA LA), Bob Colayco (Blizzard), Carrie Gouskos (EA Mythic), Greg Kasavin (Supergiant Games), Rich Gallup (Summer Camp Studios), and former Screened editors Matt Rorie and Alex Navarro.

    When user-generated video content was introduced to GameSpot, Jeff created a semi-weekly video podcast titled "Points Report," wherein he would give an update on his Xbox 360 Gamerscore and talk about the games he had been playing, and whatever else was on his mind. The Points Report was eventually discontinued when Jeff lost his self-admittedly obsessive interest in increasing his Gamerscore. Jeff was eventually appointed editorial director and was in charge of scheduling reviews.

    On November 28, 2007, Jeff was let go from GameSpot. This was a result of the inexperienced management team at Gamespot feeling nervous about losing ad money thanks to Jeff's low review score and harsh criticism for the third-person shooter Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, which featured quite prominently on GameSpot's advertising at the time. Jeff says he had to go through several "intense meetings" and was "threatened" before finally being fired not long after the review was posted.

    His departure came as a shock to most people, even within the offices of GameSpot. GameSpot's message boards and blogs were soon aflame with angry questions and comments from both users and staff because of CNET and GameSpot's poor handling of the situation. Following Jeff's termination, several other members of the staff quit in protest, including Ryan Davis, Brad Shoemaker, Alex Navarro, Vinny Caravella, Jason Ocampo, and longtime freelancer Frank Provo.

    In February of 2008, Jeff and Ryan started recording a podcast called Arrow Pointing Down, named after Ryan's personal blog, where they discussed video games, beverages, and other news. In March, Jeff and Ryan announced that they were founding a new gaming site called Giant Bomb, which they immediately launched in the form of a blog where they posted gaming news and game reviews. With a more official spot to host it, the Arrow Pointing Down podcast became known as the Giant Bombcast. Brad Shoemaker and Vinny Caravella joined Giant Bomb in June, and the full Giant Bomb site launched in beta on July 21st, 2008. On March 15th, 2012, it was announced that Giant Bomb was purchased by GameSpot's parent company CBS and the Giant Bomb offices would be moved into the GameSpot headquarters.

Since Ryan passed away in 2013, Jeff has begun creating audio-only streams of his commute home on Mixlr.

    Musical Career

    Giddy Heights
    Giddy Heights

    In December 1995, Jeff Gerstmann and Glenn Rubenstein formed the rap duo "Headboard" in Petaluma, California. From that point forward, Rubenstein went under the moniker "G-Man" while Gerstmann adopted the moniker "US Pipe." The duo was joined with their "anti-hype man" Brendan Ducousso or "Gotti". Two weeks after the band was formed, Headboard had their first gig, opening for the band Skillit.

    The band had decided their name only days before the show and were writing lyrics up until they went on stage. Most of the lyrics weren't memorized and were read off paper during the performance, where they also began selling their first EP on cassette tapes entitled "Zip! Plop!," which were made the night before the concert. Headboard soon began adding more and more members to the band, eventually amassing 11 members, including Gerstmann's future co-worker Alex Navarro. Headboard's sound continued to evolve, becoming more of a ska band than a rap group. Soon, Headboard would release their first album, "Brendan Goes to College". However, in the summer of 1997, Gerstmann and Ducousso left Headboard after Gerstmann disagreed with the direction of the band, and the band's pursuit of a record label.

    Gerstmann and Ducousso would go on to form the rap group "Suburban All-Stars". The group was a throwback to Headboard's original sound. The lyrics were extremely obscene, and mostly dealt with sex. One song, In the Can In the Can, was about having anal sex while in a public bathroom. Yeah. The group was soon joined by Ryan Davis and Alex Navarro, and the tone of the band continued to become less serious. Suburban All-Stars ended up being fairly short-lived.

    After the breakup of Suburban All-Stars, Gerstmann was not ready to give up his music career just yet and in 2003, he formed Midnight Brown, alongside his roommate Chris Henderson. The name came from a shoe color in an East Bay Catalogue. The duo's backup name was "Emily's Favorite Sweater". In March 2004, Midnight Brown released their first album, "17 Brown Lies", which was recorded mostly on Sundays. The band combined many different genres with electronic music, which the band described as "Post-Indiepop Electro". The album was self-released for free on the band's website.

    Spit Game

    In December 2004, the duo released their second album, "2084", named after the year in which the classic arcade game Robotron takes place. The band described their new sound as "fifth-wave" music. Like their first album, "2084" was self-released for free on the band's website. In February 2006, Midnight Brown released their third album, "Dope/Revenge." The album was a double-sided, the first side dealing with drug addiction and the second with mankind's lust for revenge.

    The band's fourth album, "Deadly Electric", was released on January 17th, 2010. This is their first album in the "Shoeblazer" genre. The band has stated that this will be the last full Midnight Brown album, and that they will instead release songs individually as they are completed.

    Fun Facts Regarding Individual Tracks

    The conversation between Jeff and Chris in "Call 'em Like You See 'em" was entirely improvised, and all of it was recorded in one take with very minimal editing. Because of its improvised nature, Jeff considers this track the most fun Midnight Brown song to produce.

    "Baristacratic" and "go! go! vietnam" were based on a former roommate of the two.

    The titular Cop Knife
    The titular Cop Knife

    The Japanese dialogue heard in "Kiss One More Time" is comprised of actual Japanese, though Jeff does not know what any of it means. It's a cover of a song by Tommy February6 of the same name.

    There is a newly released version of "Robot Vampire" entitled "Reggae Vampire". Jeff declared it to be the "dumbest fucking song in the world". While it has yet to see release as a part of an official Midnight Brown album, Jeff did eventually allow the internet to hear it.

    The clicking sound in Cop Knife is the opening of a knife. Gerstmann has stated that Cop Knife is not about cops or knives, but rather about ordering takeout food. Instead, the song is named after a knife owned by Gerstmann, the Spyderco Police Model, seen to the left.

    One of "The Three Fs" may or may not be "Friendship".
