Won't happen, but the BioForge video series shows that he is an excellent personality and is a perfect fit with the members of Giant Bomb.

So sure.

I would certainly enjoy him being full time GB, and I think he would fit in fine,

But the dude lives in Ireland. It ain't gonna happen.

None of your video links appear to work.

Though, I agree. O'Dwyer seems like he'd be a nice addition for video content.

Fun idea but you have to remember that the only reason Rorie was able to be picked up was because Dave left. Patrick isn't leaving, so there isn't a vacancy in their staff.

Not sure about the logistics, but it would be cool to see him as part of the team.

I feel like there should be an option between "meh" and "hire O'Dwyer". So, hire him I guess.

o dwyer is fucking awesome,one of the very best personalities gamespot has now, but he is apparently tasked with modernizing gamespot, so it wont happen.

Danny is such an awesome dude.

This obviously won't happen but I'll take any chance I can get to say that Danny is awesome.

Danny is awesome.

Personality wise he's a perfect fit and to have someone as completely un-cynical as him on the team would be rad but still I would hope it wouldn't happen. The shows that Danny produces over at Gamespot (things like Escape From Mount Stupid and Random Encounter) are excellent and I dont want to see them go away which they most definitely would if he came to Giant bomb.

Which one is 'No?'

#16 Edited by Colourful_Hippie (4337 posts) -

That sure would be awesome.

#17 Posted by Dimi3je (310 posts) -

Slim chance, but man, that would be awesome be awesome

#18 Edited by FLStyle (4657 posts) -

He would be an awesome addition to the crew.

#19 Edited by Grimes (17 posts) -

It's not that easy to get work visas, honestly.

#20 Edited by BeachThunder (11821 posts) -

Definitely :D

#21 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2368 posts) -

He and Jeff should arrange a green card marriage, obviously.

#22 Posted by HerpDerp (133 posts) -

Danny is awesome, as others have said, but I doubt a man native to another country on the other end of world is gonna pack up everything just to move to California.

Also, I really wish these polls were more thought out, those answers suck.

#23 Posted by Largo6661 (333 posts) -

Yes..... This should happen

#24 Posted by Dalai (7017 posts) -

I voted meh, but I'm not familiar with his work and a part of me thinks the staff is fine as is. If Brad leaves for North Carolina like he's supposed to for years, then I'm cool with the move.

#25 Posted by Abendlaender (2783 posts) -

Sure. Done. Let's hire Dan Ryckert as well while we're at it...

Well, this is weird.

#27 Posted by Gruebacca (511 posts) -

That sounds like a cool idea. Never gonna happen.

Well, this is weird.

COME AND JOIN US IN THE SUN BROTHER.

#29 Posted by wjb (1655 posts) -

DANNY, LEAVE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND ENTERTAIN US FOREVER!

"Hire O'Dwyer!" is a fantastic slogan if you're trying to get someone elected President.

#31 Edited by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

His Escape from Mount Stupid series is awesome. It'd be pretty cool if he joined the crew, but nobody can replace Patrick.
