GameTrailers Retrospectives takes a historic look at some of Video Game's biggest and most beloved franchises. Past episodes have showcased such blockbuster hits as Zelda, Metroid, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Star Wars, Metal Gear, & Fallout.
Gametrailers.com was founded by Geoff Grotz and Brandon Jones in 2003. Jon Slusser and his company Hornet Animation invested in the startup, and Jon took over as CEO. The company was then acquired by MTV Networks in November 2005 for an undisclosed sum.
In 2007, MTV Networks restructured its entertainment division, merging Ifilm.com and SpikeTV.com into Spike.com, and grouping this new property, GameTrailers, and Xfire, into Spike Digital Entertainment, with Jon Slusser as the new SVP in charge, Geoff Grotz as VP of Product Development, and Brad Winters as the new GM of Gametrailers.com.
