Yep, sorry Will :(

Also Matt Rorie.

#9 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1327 posts) -

Johnny V and Paul Barnett for me.

#10 Posted by Dagbiker (7022 posts) -

Will and Rorie.

#11 Posted by Little_Socrates (5834 posts) -

Johnny and Rorie, though not picking Will is very difficult.

#12 Posted by CaLe (4247 posts) -

This one's a ball breaker.

#13 Posted by forkboy (1331 posts) -

#14 Posted by Phatmac (5919 posts) -

Will Smith over Johnny V? Come on guys! Johnny V all the way!

#15 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6805 posts) -

#18 Posted by DrDarkStryfe (1282 posts) -

I would vote for Paul over just about anyone, except Rorie.

#19 Posted by JohnDudebro (955 posts) -

John Vignocchi deserves this award more than anyone else. Smith isn't half the duder Johnny is.

#20 Posted by Levius (1310 posts) -

Truly a clash of titans.

Long live Whiskey Media!

#22 Posted by Paindamnation (836 posts) -

Rorie forever. After all the shit that happened with whiskey media , no one deserves it more than Rorie.

#25 Posted by mazik765 (2334 posts) -

Gotta be Will and Rorie.

#26 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5148 posts) -

Johnny V and Rorie is in the lead!

Also, RORIE.

#28 Posted by AlwaysBeClothing (1590 posts) -

How anyone can vote against Smith and Rorie is beyond me.

You Monsters

#29 Posted by alternate (2790 posts) -

Shouldn't vote for Will. He doesn't need it. Support the underdogs.

#30 Posted by SuperSambo (3020 posts) -

Will and Rorie for me.

#31 Posted by ModernAlkemie (372 posts) -


#32 Posted by Skyrider (407 posts) -

Jesus, group of death!

Anywho, Will and Rorie forever!

#33 Posted by Red12b (9342 posts) -

people not voting for JV and PB should just shoot themselves now cause they have made the wrong decisions in life.

#34 Posted by MistaSparkle (2283 posts) -

JV vs. Rorie! 1996 was amazing! Will it happen again...? Signs pointing to no :(

#35 Posted by Jolt92 (1644 posts) -

I like Will, but fuck I think Johnny V should win the whole damn thing.

#36 Edited by MooseyMcMan (11968 posts) -

Gotta be Vignocchi and Barnett for me. That trio of Quick Looks with Barnett, and Vignocchi's unique ability to always do something stupid (and then talk about it on Giant Bomb related things) is the best.

How is Johnny V (as of this writing) not winning? How is that even possible? He's Johnny V. Every time he does something with the GB crew it's hilarious. Will Smith? Nah. You guys are just letting Jamie and Adam's Tested.com blind your judgement.

#37 Posted by B0nd07 (1744 posts) -

I love Rorie and Will as much as the next guy, but when it comes down to who's influenced Giant Bomb more it's gotta be Johnny V (with his stories) and Barnett (also with stories and, of course, <>).

#38 Posted by LiquidS (979 posts) -

Johnny & <>

#39 Posted by Dylabaloo (1573 posts) -

This one is tough, I love Barnett, he's the best storyteller to ever grace the bombcast (My first ever bombcast). But Rorie!

#40 Posted by RagingLion (1378 posts) -

I just don't associate Rorie with GB particularly. He was around a lot in terms of group WM stuff and he's great but I think Paul has added more to my GB experience over the years.

#41 Posted by jakob187 (22335 posts) -

If Matt Rorie seriously doesn't end up winning this whole thing outright, I will have no reason to live on this planet anymore...besides Diablo III.

Diablo III isn't in this competition, right? If so, then it's going to be tough.

#42 Posted by Nightriff (6318 posts) -

John and will is tough...went with Will and Rorie, this voting is getting fuckin hard

#43 Posted by Slab64 (1097 posts) -

I went Smith/Rorie, then immediately changed my mind to Vignocchi/Rorie after I clicked :/

#44 Posted by KarlPilkington (2768 posts) -

Gotta be Smith/Rorie.

#45 Posted by Sparklykiss (2035 posts) -


#46 Posted by GeneralZod37 (295 posts) -

40.3% of the people who voted so far need to have a CAT scan and/or a lobotomy.

#47 Posted by ColinWright (753 posts) -

I'd follow Rorie anywhere.

#48 Posted by Zero_ (2012 posts) -

This is it boys. Will Smith and Rorie. Come on.

#49 Posted by Winternet (8238 posts) -


#50 Posted by AlisterCat (6127 posts) -

Will all the way.
