He always seemed to have such charisma and humour that gave him a glowing presence in anything that he appeared on. I may not have visited Giantbomb as much in recent years, but when I did it was always Ryan who made everything more enjoyable to watch. Also he had the best laugh ever, the kind that makes it almost impossible for you to not laugh along with him. Just seemed like a genuinely nice, funny guy who loved life.
My condolences to friends and family. RIP Ryan.
