I wasn't familiar with GameTrailers until last year. I was very much a lapsed gamer when I saw the fantastic news Shenmue 3 had been confirmed at E3 and, amid all the celebrations for that, the wonderful GT reaction video. You don't see that enthusiasm and appreciation for something and forget about it so from there I started to follow their output. Honestly I didn't watch everything and didn't know everyone on the staff, but I liked watching what I did and appreciated knowing I could check in from time to time and see people so passionate, intelligent and entertaining discussing the gaming world.
When GT got shut down it kind of took me aback how sad I was. I liked knowing these guys were about and it sucked they were out of work and many more of you were denied being able to watch them. When Easy Allies was announced I was so pleased for everyone and happy to contribute my little bit to the Patreon. It has been good to get to know the Allies more and I am genuinely so pleased it has worked out well and they are doing such great work. If I am happy for that I can only imagine how all of you who have been around even longer feel.
