More GameSpot Review Fallout

A farewell blog post on GameSpot by reviewer Frank Provo references the firing of editor Jeff Gerstmann (story, story, story, story, story, and story) as his reason for departing the site after seven years (thanks Kotaku). His criticism is aimed at GameSpot parent CNet, saying he believes their management "let Jeff go for all the wrong reasons," going on to say "I believe CNet intends to soften the site's tone and push for higher scores to make advertisers happy." He concludes expressing sympathy for the GameSpot staff, saying: "For such upstanding people, the CNet overloads have created the ultimate soul-crushing work environment."

If Cnet is into that sort of practice, they should buy PC Gamer.
