I don't know why but "Giant Bomb stands by the original quoting of Gibeau's comments." sounds super bad ass to me. It makes me feel like Patrick is calling out Apple's bullshit

@colourful_hippie: Sorry man. Bear with me, I don't post a lot on forums so I don't know the etiquette for good thread titles.
It seems like all anytime anyone mentions the combat in Infinite they say how much they disliked it because they thought it was repetitive, simple, and getting in the way of them getting to the next story beat. Although it wasn't my favourite part of the game, my favourite parts being the story beats, I had a really good time with the combat. Am I the only one?
My aunt and uncle passed away last week. Now, I loved my aunt and uncle but when I heard the news my reaction was "Huh. That's a huge bummer". I heard Ryan had passed via a text from a friend. I had gotten up from the couch and when I saw the text I dead stopped in my tracks for what seemed like forever. Luckily there was someone there to snap me out of it. I was sad for the rest of the day and it is mostly a blur, but it wasn't until Harmoix's stream that it really hit me. I bawled for over an hour.
Today has also been pretty much a complete blur but when I came to the forums and saw all the threads about it, it opened the wound again and I just lost it for over an hour again. There will always be a Ryan shaped hole in my heart that will never be filled.
I'm not the best writer but I wrote this up because I just needed to say thank you to Ryan
Ryan Davis helped save my life. I found Giant Bomb when I was a Freshman in high school. I, much like many high schoolers, was a depressed teenager. Sure I walked into class everyday, put a big fake smile on and acted like everything was ok but deep down, I just wanted to die. Right when I was at my lowest low, I was actually contemplating suicide, I found the Giant Bomb and it changed my life forever. The Bombcast, the quicklooks, the endurance run, everything on the site was so uplifting and funny that it was the first things that actually made me laugh. I was finally able to smile again. And none of that would've happened without Ryan Davis saying, "Hey, let's make a website". I know this wasn't the best written or emotional pieces about this tragedy but I just wanted my voice to be heard. Thank you Ryan Davis, without you I might not be here writing this today.
