Olly Moss Tribute to Ryan Davis

Hi guys, like most people in the community I'm still reeling after hearing news of Ryan Davis passing. I've cried a few times and thought the best way to honor the man besides a drink in my hand and playing my summer jams loud is with some video games. Not really sure where to start but was hoping to get some sort of idea of what were some of Ryan's favorites and start from there. I'm going to start getting my Money Idol Exchanger on, then probably play some Ms. Pac-Man and do some dumb shit in Saints Row the Third. Wondering what games you'll play to remember Ryan?

Ryan's favorite game of all time is Super Mario Bros. 3 as far as I know.

super mario bros 3, saints row the third, hotline miami, and saints row 4 and xcom enemy unknown.

If you could find a Ms. Pac-man machine then I would spend a few quarters.

No One Can Stop Mr. Domino.

Was he into Pokemon Snap or was that just a random game they played through? I had always wanted to play it and thought about getting it now.

I've been playing a lot of SMB3. Not getting real far, because the Japanese version is all I have right now, and that version's kind of ridiculous. I should break out the Money Idol Exchanger later on. SR3 sounds pretty cathartic right now too.

I own Ms. Pac Man for the Genesis.

Great idea. <3

I think that was just a case of him and patrick playing through a random game together.

I hear he really liked Thunder Cats...

Wow. This is the exact same idea that I had, but I want to watch movies he liked instead of playing video games that he liked.

On twitter a while back I believe he was playing and loving it during the weekend which resulted in him bringing it in to do a live show for it. Good idea think I have my copy in a box some where in storage, I'll probably grab mine later today.

I'd like to hit up the Mrs. Pac-Man cab down at Santa Cruz this weekend.

I've been thinking of looking at his GOTY lists from the last few years and seeing what I haven't played.

I know that Ryan made me feel cool cause we both loved Incredible Crisis.

#16 Edited by PulledaBrad (612 posts) -

Incredible Crisis, Irritating Stick or just D/L all of Game Room and marathon that shit.

#17 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3154 posts) -

@pulledabrad: That Incredible Crisis quick look he did was amazing, one of the first games I thought of just didn't know the what it was called.

He talked about Bully quite a bit.

PAC-MAN CE DX!

Well, he game Braid a 5, which also happens to probably be my favourite game ever.

It's time to plug in X-Com and defend the earth from the nefarious alien invasion, in tribute of our hero.

Oh shit good reminder just grabbed that off of GMG a few days ago.

I posted this in the "Games to Remember Ryan Davis" thread but this one appears to have been made first. Figured I'd post it hear too since people reading this are clearly looking for games Ryan loved...

TRIALS AND FTL!!!

I believe he also really liked Mark of the Ninja, Hotline Miami, Fez, Walking Dead (the real one of course)...

I wanna say Dust: An Elysian Tale (can't recall who really loved it, could have been Brad or Patrick. It was mentioned in one of the first Bombcasts I ever heard) and I'm sure he liked Sleepy Dawgs but was always dwarfed by Vinny's love for it.

Bonus Round: GODDAMN 50 CENT: BLOOD ON THE MUTHAFUCKIN' SAND MUTHFUCKA GET DAT SKUUUUUULLLLLL!!!

Well, before this happened (or before we knew) I spent all of July 4th with the Bombcast crew fighting guys in WWE 13. I spent hours importing songs to my XBOX to make sure Ryan ran out to the Bombcast theme, Jeff came out as the Rap Man, Brad came out to 'Lockdown' and Vinny to 'Party Hard.'

It was time well spent.

Thanks for all these suggestions :) I'll enjoy my time.

Don't forget the Just Cause games.

Saint's Row: The Third

#29 Edited by QuaglarTheIV (55 posts) -

I hope they make another Just Cause game and call it Just Cause 3: Just Cuz.

I can't be the first person to think of that but I've never heard anyone else say it...
I wish i would have sent that to Ryan so he could tell me how dumb i am ):

They definitely made that joke before, I feel like it was actually Ryan himself. They were using it to explain why the dumb shit in the game works the way it does... "just 'cause"
