My deepest condolences to Ryan's friends and family during this time. Giant Bomb has been a staple of my daily/weekly life for quite some time now. While I didn't know him personally, I met him briefly at PAX East and it was amazing, the highlight of the show! It shows how special someone is when they can have that type of effect on what many would consider to be "strangers," and it speaks volumes as to who he was as a person.
Thank you for everything Ryan, you brought so much joy to so many!
