Jeff Gerstmann

Jeffrey Michael Gerstmann (born August 1, 1975) is an American video game journalist and musician. Former editorial director of the gaming website GameSpot and the co-founder/editor of the gaming website Giant Bomb, Gerstmann began working at GameSpot in the fall of 1996, around the launch of VideoGameSpot when GameSpot split PC and console games into separate areas. He shared his thoughts on a variety of other subjects every Monday on his GameSpot blog before his dismissal from GameSpot in 2007 following a scandal over his review of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men.
