This is going to be the worst Steam Summer Sale for me if it starts tomorrow because I've been jobless for a bit and don't start my new one until the 15th meaning I'll be totally broke for it (and won't be able to buy any games).

Nice to see Patcher's thoughts. You could tell that he really does miss him, at least I say that in his eyes.

Wow, really nice work. I really like the photo/word collage and the RYAN DAVIS portion, although I might like a version without the "thanks for everything" as well. Either way, really nice poster and a great tribute (good word choice too!)

I spoke to my fiance and my mom about it throughout the day yesterday. Both of them understood my feelings. My mom is a big reader and we came to the conclusion that even if you haven't met the person doesn't mean losing them won't hurt, like losing your favorite character at the end of a great book... only in Ryan's case, he was real and therefore I feel like it hurts much more.

I'd love to see GB sell a shirt (with proceeds going to charity or something) that says "Ryan Davis is still a threat" on it. Would be rad.

It happened on the 3rd but they decided to publicly announce it on Monday. The GB duders and some others found out about it last week.

Ryan would want the site to continue as it always has been. I bet he thinks we're acting like a bunch of pussies right now.

My thoughts exactly.

Also, I don't see Jeff abandoning his love of games or his love of talking about them anytime soon. It may just be a (tragic) time of change, maybe a new person or two will be added to the mix. Who knows? For now, I'm enjoying looking back at all the great videos of Ryan and thinking about the GB duders and Ryan's family.

Nothing stops the Bombcast, and I'm pretty sure Ryan would want it that way.

I still can't believe this is true, although it sure seems like it is. This is the most depressing news I've seen in a while and definitely the most effecting "celebrity" death I've experienced. I feel like I got to know Ryan (and the other duders) so well over the last several years, having watched nearly every video and read every article the GB has put out. This feels like missing a longtime friend (that I unfortunately never had the opportunity of meeting).
