Today has been a pretty crappy day with news of Ryan Davis' passing. For those of you who don't know who Ryan Davis is, he is a personality and journalist on a website called Giant Bomb. He has been the host for many features like The Giant Bombcast, This Ain't no Game, Big Live Live show Live, and almost every video feature they did that involved the entire crew. It was thanks to these features that we grew to love and hate this man.
I've followed this man and Jeff since the good old days of GameSpot (2004). I have listened to all of the Giant Bombcast and almost all of The Hotspot. It's really going to hit me hard that I won't be hearing Ryan's voice anymore or see him on a live show! It's really going to be weird not seeing Ryan in that chair where the host sits.
For someone who has never met the man, I sure do feel like I lost a great friend and I know I'm not the only one feeling like this right now.
Personally I am going to miss him dearly because Ryan and the GB crew got me through my years of high school and my entire college life. The live shows were a great pick me up after a long week of classes and the Bombcast was and still to this day somehow played every day. I know it's a bit overkill but I don't have T.V. so I have to rely on my podcasts for entertainment most of the time. Not really a big Youtuber.
You and the rest of the crew are a big part of my life, so I would like to thank you Ryan Davis for all you have done in the past 9 - 10 years for me and I wish you the best in the afterlife.
Condolences to everyone that knew Ryan personally especially Jeff for being his best friend and also Ryan's wife which I don't know what to say... I will leave it at that.
From a fan that will miss you.
