Seriously, Giant Bomb Premium content would be like a barren wasteland without Dan.Yeah and it's kind of a problem, the amount of people streaming on Twitch or making stuff for YouTube but no other staff members can find something to run for the site? It has never been easier to capture game footage and sling a video together.Oh yeah, I agree with you completely there. But I certainly wouldn't blame Dan for other staff members slacking.I don't really blame Dan for having enthusiasm! It's just a bit...well, where's everyone else!?I wonder how much of it has to do with loss of comfort? The original core of Giant Bomb was a group of guys who had worked with each other for a very long time at another website and then formed this one. Over the past few years they added a new person (Patrick) and after a while ended up losing 3 core members and the new guy they'd all bonded with in some way out of the main office. Vinny and Alex not being in San Fran is very noticeable in terms of the interactions they used to have (listen to old podcasts vs new ones, the new ones are still good but there's almost no comparison). Patrick brought a certain energy as well when they would do on air stuff and he left for Chicago just after it felt like he was finally a core member of the site as well. The site really took a blow when Ryan died and I don't know if it ever really recovered. Much like how Vinny made everything he did hilarious, Ryan was the same way and now neither of them are there at the main office to play "funny man" to everyone else's "straight man". Jeff can be the Funny man at times but it really depends. Brad and Drew are perpetual "Straight Men" which is why both work well in many cases with Dan.Also there's always going to be other stuff going on behind the scenes that we are never really privy to that causes things to work out the way they do. Dan just seems to have an enthusiasm the site really needed after losing several people out of the main office and as such came in with a bunch of dumb ideas (which the site has thankfully embraced) that have turned into entertaining content. I do wonder about the Mario Party stuff though. It's hilarious to watch but everyone that isn't Dan usually seems so fed up and pissed off at the end and I can't ever tell if the guys are all in good spirits the next day or really dread them like it comes off.
