@marino: Oh wow, thanks, and thanks to everyone's kind words here. : )

@thethirdrlm It's from a youtube video gamespot put up from when the GB staff arrived at CBSi, and they were knocking down some walls.

Patrick is the best in the world .

Where's the video of them playing with the PS Move . I'd love to see that !

Sure it's an obvious pick for the song, but it works and hats off duder

I actually think this one works remarkably well. Also, it's a total "Patrick" song.


I liked this one a lot too. LOST man, LOST.

Seriously excellent work duder.

Hopefully he doesn't show up here on Friday, because the Hawks victory parade is taking over the city. He'll come back to a madness!!

#110 Posted by EvGar (154 posts) -

What was the video of everyone holding move controllers and (what I assume to be) Alex carrying Patrick like a battering ram? That, and what was the demolition part?

#111 Edited by Monkeyman04 (1536 posts) -

@evgar: The first one you are talking about I think is from The Big Live Live Show: Live #1 when they were playing Johann Sebastian Joust. As for when it happened I don't recall. And the second one I have no idea.

Everyone's choices of music are so depressing!

#114 Posted by HellknightLeon (489 posts) -

Wait Patrick was not an intern? Wow... man I feel bad now... another question... is he dead now? The video make it feel like he is dead... that and my God do I hate that song. I feel like if its for GB it needs to be Boys2men.

(Cool video going to miss Patrick. Wish him the best!)

#115 Edited by Itwongo (1543 posts) -

Damn. I'm gonna miss having him on. I've grown so used to him.

Great job, duder! However, something seems... lacking...

I made my own version of the video. Hope you all like it. Also, this is my first action as a 25-year-old. Happy Birthday to me!

No, that's not quite right either...

Ah, yes. This is more like it:

Damn, I'm gonna miss Scoops around the office. I really hope he keeps up with the content from chicago. I still wanna see Spookin with scoops and niche stuff with games like 999 and Virtue's Last reward. Someone has to speak for the minority on GB and that's patrick's forte.

Good video bye the way. Never heard the song, so I don't really care about the cliched perception.

I always hear that song around graduation time. Now it feels like Patrick graduated.

#126 Posted by ajamafalous (12513 posts) -

Great editing OP; must've taken a while to scour through all that footage. Definitely some good memories in there along with some things I'd never seen before (like Alex carrying Patrick in JSJ).

Also, lol at everyone complaining about the song. I don't like Green Day in the least, but the song choice is perfectly fitting for the purpose of the video.

However I gotta say, you guys collectively behave as if you're friends with the site crew, it's weirding me out tbh. They don't know who any of us are, we don't know each other, we visit here to watch and read their content on video games, they're not your friends..

You know, looking at your join date makes me think you're a relatively new visitor (apologies if you're not), in which case I can totally understand why you'd feel that way. It was a different time in 08-09, and those of us that were around for everything then (from photobombs in convenience stores to flea bombs on couches) probably still feel a lot closer to the crew than anyone joining within the last couple years would.

#127 Posted by Popogeejo (621 posts) -

I forgot just how young Patrick can look at times. Seriously, there are clips where it looks like one of guys brought their 14 year old nephew in for the day.

Have fun in Chicago.

#128 Posted by Jackel2072 (2509 posts) -

sorry you lost me the moment that green day song started playing. real nice sentiment, but god damn that song is the worst!

#129 Posted by dr_mantas (2373 posts) -

That was AMAZINGLY well done. The editing, the song also worked with it.

Patrick really did add a lot to Giant Bomb. Too bad he won't be adding as much from now on.

#130 Posted by peterh (60 posts) -

Funny enough, that's the only song by Greenday that I DON'T hate.

Great video!

#131 Posted by mrfluke (5676 posts) -

I edited together a video to celebrate some of Patrick's best moments on camera at the GB offices, and I wanted to share it with everyone. I know it feels really sappy and probably more sad than I meant it to, but it was fun to make.

Best wishes to Patrick in Chicagoland. : )

Great video and editing, I actually am not dead tired of that song surprisingly.

Also, that youtube doubler thing made me do my own version that others tried. I think it works extremely well.

Patrick vs The Warriors

Awesome video for an awesome guy. Gonna miss patrick's contributions a lot... Don't always agree with his opinions ( fuck Yoshi's Island) ,but he's such an enthusiastic guy. Seeya Scoops

Man, I'm going to miss Patrick being in the office.

#138 Edited by Graylend (56 posts) -

Shit man. Got me too.

You ain't leaving or anything, but I'll miss you kickin' it with the rest of the Bomb Squad.

Peace, Scoops.

#139 Posted by OrangeSponge (77 posts) -

Bye, Scoops.

#140 Posted by WrenchNinja (240 posts) -

Ugh, he's not dying geez.

I'm not getting emotional over someone just moving to another city while still working for the site.

Nope. Not falling for this sentimental nonsense.

Not falling for it.

Oh who am I kidding. ;_;

Well edited though.

Not sure what's worse, using that song in montages, or that Graduation song by Vitamin C....
