It's something I can't really put my finger on. Is it because every time he manages to come up with a new skill or event in his life that blows us away (learning to fly a fighter jet, going to North Korea)? Or is he just a plain 'ol affable guy?

#2 Posted by TruthTellah (9637 posts) -

I feel like this could get super creepy real quick.

Because the obvious answer is his intoxicating aroma and Samsonian locks.

#3 Posted by MentalDisruption (1744 posts) -

I think he's awesome because he has a likable personality, and he adds quality input to whatever content he's in. Plus, he seems to know how to get a lot out of life with all the skills and stuff he gets into. That's a trait I can admire.

He is young, relatable, and has a can-do, adventurer's spirit. Very strong stress on the young.

His beautiful eyes.

I just think that Drew is actually a spy and Giant Bomb is just the cover for his activities around the world. The trip to North Korea was actually a mission to destroy the nuclear program of North Korea.

Seriously speaking I just think that people like Drew because the guy dedicates himself to learning simulation based games like few other people do. Making your own manuals is something that not many people have the patience for.

The blonde hair? The eyes? The manly stances? There's all kinds of reasons.

The same reason everyone loves Vinny, I imagine - Drew's so pleasant and easygoing that he's managed not to express a single opinion that's abrasive to anyone. It helps that his appearances are so scarce.

I think creating such a realistic android is a great accomplishment for science, that's why I'm a fan. I just hope his brother Lore doesn't show up.

He looks like what most of us probably want to look like and he does some cool and interesting things with a personality that isn't overt, but is nonetheless interesting. And he does it all so effortlessly. I mean, he's the only guy who makes that one camera angle at the PC during Unprofessional Fridays look like it was a good idea.

I'm not sure that's quite true in Vinny's case. He has said plenty to rub people the wrong way. He just accompanies those comments with a level of frivolity that makes you forgive most any misgiving.

His boyish good looks.

Dude sets his mind on something and does it. Seems hard working, isn't abrasive or dismissive of others.

#22 Posted by dungbootle (2501 posts) -

He's a pretty wholesomely fun guy

He's a man's man.

#26 Posted by TobbRobb (5118 posts) -

Hot, smart and he does everything he wants at the best of his ability. We are all just extremely jealous to the point of loooooooove.

Also gotta love when someone can show up fairly rarely and say kind of not a lot. But still leave one of the biggest impressions. It's kind of a magical skill.

#27 Posted by RollingZeppelin (2284 posts) -

He's really talented but he's never a dick about it, or falsely humble, he just owns it. And he's really kind and polite, and now I realise I have a man crush on Drew. :/

#28 Edited by Blackout62 (1500 posts) -

He's the only bang on my Giantbomb Marry, Bang, Kill list.

Marry: Vinny, Brad, Patrick, Rorie

Bang: Drew

Kill: Jeff, Ryan, probably Alex

I don't love Drew either.

I don't hate him. I don't dislike him. Drew is alright. He's just not more interesting than anybody else on the site when he does content. If anything, while I bet his focus on really slow paced games and flight simulators is extremely entertaining to him, I find those videos to often be... unremarkable, except for everybody else freaking out around him about random stuff.

I always assumed that people loved Drew around here due to a mix of hardcore gaming and PC master race stuff. That made sense to me, because Drew seems to legitimately enjoy stuff that a lot of other people say they enjoy, but secretly don't, which makes his stuff a more entertaining way to engage with those things. I guess I was wrong and it's all about his dashing good looks.

Also, Drew looks like this guy:

Pheromones. DX:HR-style.

Because Drew is a man among men. and I mostly wanted an excuse to post this video from a year ago that I just saw.

Loading Video...

Its just beautiful.

Holy shit, Drew's a double agent Russian spy posing as an American spy!

#33 Posted by Dimi3je (432 posts) -

it's the beard

#34 Posted by claybrez (349 posts) -

I like him because he is a dude genuinely interested in a lot of stuff and life itself. It's also nice having a guy who makes references to things more around my time.

#35 Edited by Unilad (698 posts) -

I actually find him so intensely irritating it hurts.

#39 Posted by Brendan (8758 posts) -

He's easy to like. Like Vinny he doesn't review games, so he mostly only talks about games he likes and doesn't piss off any fanbases. He's rather quiet and loud people often rub a certain type of person the wrong way (every loud or outspoken guest + Patrick at the beginning has annoyed people).

#40 Edited by csl316 (10878 posts) -

Old thread, but it's good to reflect. Initially, it was the intrigue of this T-shirt intern guy. Then it was the total mystery of this dude playing Soviet military video games at every opportunity, with detailed notes of flight simulators. Then it was his videos with Dan that showed that he's just a normal guy that's into action movies, despite his probably shady past as a spy. Now it's just comfortable, friendly, awesome Drew that's become one of the pillars of the site.

There are levels to Drew's rise at Giant Bomb. So it's been neat to see.

And various other things.

#41 Posted by Gruebacca (667 posts) -

He's a great contrast to the others, mainly. He's very humble and doesn't speak up much, so when he does it's important.

He's a pleasant guy who hasn't ever been dismissive. He hardly ever swears even when the situation pisses him off or severely bewilders him. His way of handling those scenarios is so untraditional that it's amusing.

He also has fascinating interests that he spend a lot of time on. He's the definition of 'genuine'.

#42 Posted by Joe423 (172 posts) -

He just seems like one of the nicest guys around and he's really endearing.

#43 Edited by sravankb (213 posts) -

Cause Drew's the sort of guy every person should strive to be. Nope, not even joking here - based on what I've seen on GB, dude just seems genuinely nice.

He does great work (check out the E3 videos for some of his editing), seems to be very fit, very witty, charming, doesn't get mad easily, stays positive, is willing to try new things, has a level of curiosity that few people do, etc. etc.

And he's a great contrast to the rest of GB. While the other guys seem to get off on talking about how much they hate most things or ironically enjoy shitty stuff, Drew just seems to genuinely like whatever he enjoys and doesn't spend too much time on stuff he doesn't.

Funny, being nice makes you liked lol

Drew without a beard is so strange to see now.

i've lately intensely enjoyed the little struggling noises and "NONONONONO"s he yelps during games.

Yuuup. That attitude is pretty much in contrast to the Internet as a whole. People love talking about how much they hate something. Don't hear much of that from Drew.

#49 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (6289 posts) -

His awesomeness clearly.

#50 Posted by ThePickle (4267 posts) -

He's not a dick about stuff. If he doesn't like something he won't carry on about it like Jeff or Brad.
