För 13 år sedan startades GameTrailers, en hemsida helt fokuserat på att leverera speltrailers för kommande spel. De hade som mål att revolutionera hela speljournalistbranchen, vilket de också har gjort. Majoriteten av journalistiken är i dag i videoformat. Branschen hade inte sett ut som den gör idag om det inte vore för GameTrailers.com. På sin Facebooksida har man skrivit ett avskedsmeddelande som ni kan läsa både här nedanför och på deras facebooksida.

Tack för allt, GameTrailers.

After 13 years, GameTrailers is closing down today.

When GameTrailers was founded in 2002, internet video was a revolutionary concept. YouTube wouldn’t be founded for another three years; consumer live streaming was nine years away. Back then, online game journalism was still dominated by text articles and static imagery. The most prestigious coverage still happened in print. If you wanted to watch a show about video games, you had to watch it on a special TV station that had 10 shows.

GameTrailers helped change all that. Today, game journalism is dominated by video: trailers, live gameplay, Let’s Plays, and news shows. Now there are millions of hours of content available at any time on your PC, your game console, your TV, and your phone.

We’re proud we helped bring this world into being. That is the legacy of GameTrailers. We’re grateful to all of our fans who helped make us successful. Thank you for your continued support over the years. It has been an adventure.
