In 2004, GameSpot won "Best Gaming Website" as chosen by the viewers in Spike TV's second Video Game Award Show, and has won Webby Awards several times. The domain gamespot.com attracted at least 60 million visitors annually by 2008 according to a Compete.com study. GameSpot launched in May 1996, with the goal of becoming the world's best online information resource for PC gaming enthusiasts. GameSpot began as a small start-up company founded by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady, and Jon Epstein, who had all worked together at IDG's Multimedia World Magazine. The idea was to create an online gaming site that would combine the editorial quality of a top print magazine with the interactivity and multimedia capabilities unique to the Internet. At the end of 1996, GameSpot was well on its way to becoming a leader in the PC gaming market, and the company launched its video game counterpart in December of that year. The video game site would be known by two different names--VideoGameSpot and videogames.com--before finally being reborn in May 2000 as GameSpot Video Games. Since its launch in 1996, GameSpot has undergone two major redesigns and a few minor face-lifts. The site has received dozens of industry awards, but more importantly it has earned the respect and loyalty of the world's biggest and best gaming audience. The entire staff is committed to serving the needs of that audience, and we work as hard as we can--day in and day out, year in and year out--to live up to our goal of being the first and best place "Where Gamers Go to Know." GameSpot is owned by CNET Networks, a top 10 Internet company with established Web sites in 25 countries and 16 languages. It is one of four CNET Networks media brands, along with CNET, ZDNet, and mySimon. We hope that you've enjoyed what GameSpot has delivered thus far, and we hope that the best is yet to come.

 Hop to the Top anchor name = #gathering-of-developers-god-games Gathering of Developers G.O.D. Games
Gathering of Developers, Inc. was a Texas-based PC and video games publishing company, founded in January 1998 by Mike Wilson and others. Their mission was to bridge the gap between publishers and independent game developers, allowing independent developers creative control over their projects, ownership of their intellectual property (IP), and participation in the publishing and marketing decisions. Its founding was caused by the tightknit development of the game Daikatana by Ion Storm, where only a few people had a say in the development, coined by the phrase "Design is Law", coupled by the publisher Eidos giving into demands such as the removal of milestones. Fueled by past publishing experiences and frustrations, several experienced development companies bound together to form a relationship-based publisher. The company later became a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive. Gathering of Developers' first wave of releases included Railroad Tycoon IINocturneDarkstoneAge of Wonders and Fly!. The company later expanded to the console market. Take-Two acquired the company outright in May 2000, and attempted unsuccessfully to manage the Texas-based group from its New York office. The founders and employees of Gathering of Developers were unhappy with the lack of freedom the company allowed for following through on its principles of fair treatment of developers and IP ownership. Founder Doug Myres died unexpectedly in May 2001, prompting the other partners to negotiate a separation with the company shortly thereafter. Eventually Take-Two took over all operations and rebranded the studio simply Gathering, and have since folded it into the label 2K Games. During the gaming trade event E3, Gathering of Developers was known for being extremely extravagant, offering free barbecue, live music, and beer to the nearly 10,000 E3 attendees that would cross the street into their "Promised Lot" each day; they were also famous for their Catholic Schoolgirl 'booth babes'

This was widely reviewed as the best flight simulator on the Mac, and the company earned the reputation for "the best flight sims on the Mac market."

Parsoft turned to A-10 Attack! and released it as a self-published title. Graphsim used the unfinished F/A-18 precursor to develop F/A-18 Hornet. Hornet spawned a number of upgrades, mission packs, and a port to Microsoft Windows in 1995. Today, Graphsim is primarily a distributor, with their notable products being X-PlaneFalcon 4.0: Allied Force, and the latest version of the F/A-18 franchise, F/A-18 Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Grey Dog Software is a computer games development company, based in Phoenix, Arizona, and specializing in sports text simulations. Notable games released by Grey Dog include the Total Extreme Warfare series and the Wrestling Spirit series.. As avid gamers and game developers, there have been many instances when our experiences have left us thinking that we could do a better job, that we could run a better company. Finally we decided to just do it, and Grey Dog Software was born. When it came time to decide what we wanted in our gaming company, it was easy. The company had to be about the games. Games we would be proud to have our name on, games that innovate, games that deliver all that is promised, and games you would want to play over and over again. No gimmicks, just the best games we can make. It sounds so simple, so basic. Yet sadly this fundamental principle is often lost in the pursuit of a sale, but not at Grey Dog. The most important part of our game development process is you - our customers. Our customers help us make the best games we can. We seek out input on every part of our game development cycle, from the inception of an idea to thoughts on the finished product. We embrace praise and criticism alike because in the end, the games get better as a result. At Grey Dog, our focus will always be making the best games we can. For every business decision, we ask the question - "How does that help make the game better?" If it doesn't, then the decision is simple-we don't do it.
