This is one of the worst days. Hugs. Hugs all around. I don't know what kind of impact this is going to have. What do we do without Ryan? The world is collapsing...

@fallen189 We dont need hundreds of threads for this

You're right, we need thousands.

#18 Edited by Rmack (1027 posts) -

Thanks. I'm still shook up and just...not okay. I can only imagine how the staff is. I wish we could give them hugs too.

#19 Edited by MormonWarrior (2487 posts) -

I feel like I have nobody to talk to about this because none of my family/friends would understand.

Thanks for that.

I could really do with a large amount of alcohol right now.

Yeah, I have two friends who read/watch/listen to GB. One of them is at work and the other only listens to the podcast. I don't know if I should break the news to them or what. Even then, I'm not sure what we'd say.

Im the same, few of my friends listen to the Bombcast all the time. One of them txt me a while ago just saying: "Oh fuck..."

Seriously. Great, group Duder hug. We're all in this together. :(

Fuck hugs, let's get some malt liquor up in this bitch! 40s for everyone!

#35 Posted by MariachiMacabre (6939 posts) -

I need an internet hug from my favorite internet forum. You guys are great.

#36 Posted by Drummerlp2000 (55 posts) -

Hugs guys. It sucks because everyone i know outside of this site doesn't really keep up with GB or games so they don't understand why i'm so heartbroken and bummed so i can't talk to anyone IRL without sounding silly. Seriously what a great dude. My heart goes out to the staff, his family and this community.

Exactly how I feel. Big love for GB and all the community.

I'm gonna miss him guys. I hope all the games up there are dumb yet great, deserving of one star, yet also five stars, just the way he would have wanted.

@fallen189: We're allowing it for today.

Thankyou! You and everyone there at GB are just as awesome! I truly appreciate this and you and everyone there!

Or come in here join the chat, be silly. Watch videos and enjoy music.

Thankyou zeforgotten, I need to watch this and blub like a school girl while laughing my ass off! IT HURTS BUT I LOVE IT! This community is the greatest on the internet and Ryan helped make it this way with his friends!
What a tribute. Love Ryan Davis!

Thx & hugs to all the gb crew/fans/users out there. Know I need it right now after this news.

#45 Posted by corruptsaves (209 posts) -

The way we communicate with technology these days or rather the way sites like Giantbomb can communicate with us.. I don't really know how to word it. Thoughts going out to everyone right now.

#46 Posted by Symptomz (130 posts) -

@ravenlight: No doubt!

It's crazy to think how many hours I've listened to Ryan, whether I was driving somewhere, walking or painting. Hugs to you guys. But liquor after the hugs.

Viva la Ryan Davis!

#50 Edited by PillClinton (3284 posts) -

I may be a bit of a jackass at times, but I love this site and all you guys. This website, with Ryan so often at the helm, so dependably saw me through so many different, and often hard times of my life. And the Bombcast, always reliably there when I needed it. <>
