I just found out that Alex Navarro has left gamespot. This was mentioned on Penny Arcade, though they link to the Joystiq article that provides the details. I have been avoiding cnet properties so don't know if they have any information about this. My personal opinion is that while the low review score was not the sole reason that Gerstmann was fired, it was probably a factor. I believe that the cnet management wanted wanted to make a more advertiser friendly site and firing Gerstmann was done simply to make other gamespot staffers afraid to go against the wishes of their management. That is just my opinion, though.
