GB is like Voltron. You can't have Voltron without all the cats. And then sometimes you get new cats and that's cool, because then you have a better Voltron, with like a beefed up crotch. For fuckin.
I have to say that Everyone on Giantbomb is great.If you take one of them out of it the whole thing would crumble. They sort of need each other for it to work there different personalities create a good dynamic that's really fun and entertaining .I think if it was just the Jeff show or the Vinny show it would get boring real fast and you would miss your least favourite duder real fast
For me me It's has to be Vinny then Jeff ,Ryan, Brad and Patrick. Although Brad has really loosened himself up alot and is now alot of fun. I could always sense the nerves in Br.ad but what ever happened to him he seems way happier and that's great.
I like them all ... but I kinda like Vinny the most , because when he get into something , he gets really passionate about it as far as to consume other media and not think it is stupid (like the rest of the duders tend to). And I tend to do that sometimes :P , also I think Drew is a cool cat , he just exudes coolness without trying , wonder how he does it. Brad is cool too :
While I love everyone, the only choice that wont hurt anyones feelings is Vinny. Why? CUZ FUCKING VINNY. No, but tbh, Vinny to me seems to put in the most effort not just behind the scenes but also being funny on the pod too. Jeff is a close second. Another thing that Vinny has going for himis that he is a baby daddy now, and as we all know, babies are imbalanced as fuck.
I've really like the Breaking Brad videos. It's fun to watch him be full of rage and then boom victory. I've also really been enjoying Vinny's baby stories. My wife wants to have a kid in a few years and I'm not really excited about the idea so I play her Vinnys adventures and we laugh together.
Alex because he isn't an asshole like the rest of them. I miss Screened, I really wish he did more stuff here :(
Patrick is pretty cool but that recent Dead Island thing was just overboard. The dude needs to pick his battles, there wasn't anything all that wrong with that collectors edition. If he thought there was then he should know better then to assume everyone thinks the way he does. There was no explanation whatsoever as to what was wrong with it. Most of the time though he is pretty cool.
The behind the scenes dudes are also pretty awesome.
Fuck Brad. Fuck Jeff. Fuck Ryan Davis.
Now with Patrick and Brad... I get the feeling that they feel like opinion is the end all qualifier for what's good and what's bad. I'm sure if you asked them, they don't feel that their opinion is all important. It's more just the way it comes off.
You're right, and I'm trying hard not to turn into one of those ridiculous Patrick haters on the site- but he's just been doing so much stuff that bugs me lately, and I noticed this point specifically during this weeks podcast. Jeff was making light of the fact that he hates Tower Defense games, even though Brad and Vinny were into it. Maybe Jeff's just better at portraying sarcasm or something- but Patrick jumps in and just declares that "it's a shitty genre," in a very matter-of-fact way, and that's it. Ugh.
Vinny and Jeff
Ryan is a close third. If Dave wasn't so busy i'd have him up there too. Besides some moments of greatness, Brad is mostly just there. Patrick is cool when he's just hanging out, but when he talks serious about video games he can be boring/annoying. Drew is in the same ship as Brad. One of my top 5 bombcasts was last summer when Vinny, Jeff, and Ryan where just kickin it. Pure gold.
I can certainly relate to Brad the most personality wise. I almost always agree with his opinions. Jeff is great at just being himself which is usually really funny.
Ryan does what he needs to to keep things moving along with some amusing distractions. Not sure what needs to be said about Vinny since something makes him instantly awesome.
Ahh I'm thinking about this to much so I'll go with the first one I thought of which happens to be Brad.
I come to Giant Bomb mostly for entertainment first, video game stuff second. Given that, I would say my order would be:
I hands down find Jeff and Vinny the funniest, especially together. I'm not on a Patrick or Alex hate train, I just don't find them very entertaining at all. Patrick always feels like he's yelling at me, like every word he says is the linchpin of an argument, or is super profound. For Alex, it just seems like he's doing his best to keep up with the comedy chops of the funnier guys, and just comes off as trying way too hard, and makes a lot of awkward and uncomfortable attempts at humor.
I think of the staff a lot like the cast of Whose Line Is It Anyway. Everyone they cycle through the show is usually at least passable, but it's hard not to be bummed out when the much less funny actors take a spot in a bit, and your favorite actor is sitting on the bench.
The last few things Alex has been involved in have made me really like Alex.
He was chill and relaxed and let his personality do the work rather than attempting to be the snark master he is only good at in his writing. See his Bombastica entry too. He is a really cool guy when he relaxes.
Jeff probably. I really like everyone for different reasons, Ryan is the funniest and the best actor/host/anything. Brad is relatable in more ways than I might want to admit. Vinny has so much goddamn HEART. But Jeff knows how to handle people in a way no one else does. It's just hard to not agree with him no matter what he says and that is a skill I can respect. On top of that we got the majority of the industry's integrity in one man. He is a likeable dude, plain and simple.
