:'(((((

Alex said this isn't a joke, but that can't be...I'm trying to stop myself from crying, but I don't think I can. This can't be.

Now I know what this was about...

Garry Whitta has posted something both joyful and heartbreaking:

What happened?

I am literally shaking, this feels awful

What happened?

The front page. Brace yourself, it's a big punch in the gut.

I'm actually crying...this is horrible.

It's hard to not feel connected to someone you listen to and watch on a daily basis. This is incredibly sad news. My thoughts and condolences are with Ryan's family and all of Giant Bomb.

Its the worst thing that could happen. I don't wanna believe it

#8 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6298 posts) -

This is awful but it's kinda moving seeing how many people are taking the loss of a games journalist so hard. Not to slight the loss of life, I'm saying it's a good thing. It sucks that he had just gotten married as well. God damn it this blows.

it's so true. i've never felt sadder to know somebodies lost ive never known.

This is insanity. Ryan was a fantastic dude that snagged more laughs out of me than any other crew member. He will be sorely missed. This site is really going to take a hit from this; I don't mean from the fans, but I cannot imagine the crew coming back from this unscathed...

#13 Edited by themangalist (1735 posts) -

I don't think I could ever look at old Ryan videos the same ever again :(

R.I.P. man.

Devastating.

The last time I felt this awful about somebody dying that I didn't know "personally" was when Adam Yauch passed away. More than a year later I still get teary-eyed at that when I think about it. This hurts just as much, if not more.

#17 Posted by YoungFrey (1321 posts) -

I always saw Ryan as the steady hand on the tiller. The level-headed guy who could see past so much bullshit and hype. A Renaissance nerd equally knowledgable in flim, games, and comics. I'll miss him something fierce.

Tonight I play No One Can Stop Mr. Domino.

GB jokes about a lot of things but they surely wouldn't joke about this....right?

#23 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4207 posts) -

I just don't understand what happened. RIP Ryan. :(

#24 Posted by Skywarpgold (153 posts) -

@jammy411: Exactly. I can't imagine how the rest of the crew is feeling. My heart goes out to them.

#25 Posted by Pr1mus (3904 posts) -

I'm hoping that i can still get mad at him later today when he says it was just a bad joke...

But man... even Ryan wouldn't joke about being dead right after his wedding right? :(

#26 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4207 posts) -

Jeff just edited Ryan's wiki page.. I just feel plain bad.

#27 Posted by chrisphil1724 (62 posts) -

I am so stunned right now...if I had a quarter that could give one more life to someone, I'd put it in Ryan's machine right now.

Just one more life

#28 Edited by falserelic (5436 posts) -

I'm still in shock I can't believe he died. He just got married, very sad news.

My brain is not able to comprehend this. He just got married as well. This is absolutely heartbreaking. R.I.P. Ryan Davis. Giant Bomb will never be the same again.

#31 Posted by Bollard (5532 posts) -

@aegon: Aw man you went and embedded the picture, I couldn't bear. Too happy and now too sad.

#32 Edited by ShaggE (6452 posts) -

I'm just in shock right now. Although Alexis' tweet brought the tears a bit, I can't accept this as something that really happened yet. I keep expecting to see an update saying that some asshole got into all of these accounts somehow and started a horrible, elaborate prank. I know that's not true, but... yeah.

I've spend thousands of hours listening to and watching Ryan over the years... I feel like I know him better than I know some of my actual friends.

I just don't know how to react to this.

Edit: Okay, reading his wiki just did it for me. This really fucking happened, and I can't stop with the tears.

I really hope GB takes a break on the videos for at least a couple of weeks. I don't think I could stand seeing the guys force themselves to put on a show. Video games literally could not matter less right now, and the only thing they'll accomplish by doing the weekly stuff is to put an even bigger pall over the site.

On a side thought, I'm aborting my GB Creepypasta project for obvious reasons. What was silly is now just ghoulish, and not in the intended way.

#33 Posted by Scottish_Sin (223 posts) -

Just a huge kick in the gut. I can't even begin to imagine how his wife, family and friends are feeling. My condolences go out to all of them.

This has to be just an awful nightmare, right? Right?

Yeah, didnt the GB crew joke about "who will survive Ryan's wedding?" I just wish all of this was a joke too...

Still cant wrap my head around this.... He was just fucking married...

1 of a handful of people i don't know personally that i will truly miss. sad for the GB crew as well.

#41 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1145 posts) -

Ugh. I can't even fucking process this. Listening to the Bombcast got me through some really shitty times at college. Even when super stressed, they cracked me up. I've never really been this upset over the passing of someone I don't know. Not sure how to process it.

#42 Posted by mikethekilla (328 posts) -

This is crazy and I can't quite yet wrap my head around what has happened. I was literally just listening to him on some old quick looks.

R.I.P Ryan Davis gone but never forgotten.

#43 Edited by Bucketdeth (8010 posts) -

First time I've cried for a person I have never met, can't believe that magnificent bastard has left us. Gonna be tough without him here at Giantbomb.

#44 Posted by JoeyRavn (4973 posts) -

This is terrible. And the circumstances make it even more heartbreaking. If I'm this gutted, I can't even imagine how Ryan's family and friends are feeling. My heart goes out to them.

The first thing that'll come to my mind tomorrow when I wake up is "Heeeeey, every-one! It's Tueeeeesday...!".

#45 Posted by DJJoeJoe (1324 posts) -

I don't think it would matter if there were or not, there are enough tears going around that justify any sort of attempt to defuse feelings via jokes.

#46 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I've been following Ryan's internet shenanigans since I first discovered GameSpot when I was 12. This is crushing, RIP Ryan you will be missed.

#47 Posted by Ramone (2966 posts) -

I'm crying

I never cry.

#48 Posted by Darson (451 posts) -

First time I've cried for a person I have never met

Seconded. And I'm sure many share the same.

Not to sound grim or cynical, but intrusive thoughts have always entered my mind over the years about something really bad impacting the GB site or staff. Whether CBS stopped believing in it and laid everyone off or what would happen, god forbid, someone passing. But I, like most, would say "That would never happen."

I know many duders could never stand to think about where the website could be in a few years because we know all too well about how fast gaming websites come and go. Honestly, I thought such a possible heartache would be avoided as either I would either move on from this silly entertainment medium, the site would eventually close, or something else of that nature.

I guess what I'm saying is that never wanted to be around long enough for something like this to happen. But that's life I suppose.

God damn it, Ryan Davis.

God damn it.

Ryan Davis is on the top treading topics for Twitter. His life has impacted so many!

#50 Posted by Deranged (1837 posts) -

That picture of Alexis with Ryan... just brought the rushing of tears down my face...

This is honestly just terrible. My love and condolences to the Davis family and the Crew.
