Drew's a good dude.
I mean, I could probably find a better way to say this. But if I HAD to try and find something positive out of the tragic loss of Ryan, it would be that Drew has become more prominent on the site. I've always liked Drew and think he fits in real well on the Bombcast. He's more down to earth, kind of the every man. He knows his shit about games, not quite to the level of Jeff, Brad, or Vinny, but that's a good thing. Adds a unique perspective. Plus he usually does the craziest things with his free time. And he had two of the best UPF games, the llama love-sim and the airplane sim. I love Drew.
Honestly my biggest worry is that once the site does get a few new people on board then Drew will kind of go back to being the background guy.
Its a lot better than Brad constantly talking about DOTA
What's better is that Brad is the only one who loves Dota and everyone else just kind of smiles and nods when he talks about it.
Haha yea. Everyone is just like, "Uh huh...uh huh...yea...ok....anyways".
Drew is great though, he always has these weird interesting stories to tell.
He isn't awkward if anything he has gotten better on the mic and in front of the camera since this last summer. Him and Vinny were made for each other. If drew ever moved on before GB dissolves Id be extremely disappointed.
What if... uh... what if Vinny sort of moved on?
Of the many adjectives I could use to describe Drew, "awkward" is not one of them. "Quiet", yes, perhaps "reserved", but not "awkward".
I don't think awkward is the right word. I'd say he's an understandable level of reserved given the company he his conversing with. Drew is a producer and a producer knows to let the talent shine. I think Drew purposefully tries to play the accompanying role, perhaps to a detriment to himself.
I think these character examination threads are way more awkward than Drew is.
Drew in general is underrated in general. I don't think many users realize how crucial he is to keeping everything running at Giant Bomb in regards to the video content, especially now that Vinny is in New York. I would listen to the podcast if it was only him talking, and I'd watch UPF if it was just him playing flight sims the whole time.
Also, I totally agree with @mocbucket62. He's just as awkward as anyone else who works at Giant Bomb. Everyone's awkward in their own ways.
These threads are weird. Who are we to analyze the staff like this?
I also don't like how people simply state what goes on at Giantbomb as fact even though they have as much access to that info as any other user of this site (outside of the staff and possibly the mods). Drew may be the cornerstone of the site or just simply a piece, how the hell should I know and you guys don't know either so please stop stating that as fact. There is a lot of this in those complaining threads about the site also and it's always botherd me.
I just realized this thread is 5 months old
Don't worry...I'd celebrate Drew's, er, sex appeal any day.
