Best of Giant Bomb Videos Masterthread. Newest: 55 - TED-01

Hey

Hi! Over the past three years (God...) I've been collecting the best bits of random Giant Bomb Quick Looks/Videos and making little compilations of them and putting them up on Youtube. I remember initially doing them as a way of introducing new members to the site what the best content was without having them being forced to watch countless hours of videos.

Over time, some of the videos broadened out past Giant Bomb and introduced a lot of outsiders to the site (I remember receiving a lot of comments/PMs saying that the videos led them to the site and/or led them to buying premium content). I'm super happy that this stuff managed to happen because I was effective in making my little highschool mixtape of what I thought was cool and I was able to share it with a bunch of people.

Ok, Where am I going with this? I've done a horrible job over the past year or so of keeping up with it and properly cataloging stuff when I should have. So this thread is a way to properly do it. Along with that, there's also a handful of users on youtube that have done similar things that should be grouped in with my shlock (actually the Persona highlights were made before I started doing stuff). So here we go!

Mike Kob's Giant Bomb videos are fucking amazing.

TheBurlapLemur's Bitesized Bomb videos is super ambitious. Watch them if the "Quick Looks" aren't quick enough.

Personal To-Do List for Me:

  • I need to add more people to the Other Videos section. If there's anyone out there who I skipped over, please yell at me.
  • Make more videos! I'm currently looking at making a video a week since I've got time now. If you have a favorite highlight, please yell at me on here or on my Twitter account.

I know, I'm slow. There should be more updates every (possibly other) week, so stay tuned for that! It's all laid out in the comments how I'm doing this along with my wrestling website ( www.WrestlingLogic.com btw)

As always, all requests are welcome.

Thank you Ryan

I think that I've written and deleted so many sentences today trying to figure out what to say. So here's the best I can come up with:

Thank you Ryan for providing me with hundreds of hours of great, incredible videos and podcasts. Even if I never got to meet you (I've been kicking myself all day today for not getting those PAX East tickets for last years show because I've wanted to be a part of it for so long but schedules and college has always held me back), I felt like I had a close, personal attachment to you because of the way you conducted and handled yourself on a day to day basis.

You were extremely funny and a great host, I've been trying to think of flaws with Ryan Davis all day and I can not come up with any. I remember a few years ago (maybe last year?) where you accidentally got mad at a game and yelled out a slur, but you immediately apologized and called yourself out on your mistake. It's rare to be great at your job, but it's equally as rare when you find someone with that kind of humility as well.

I'll definitely miss your maniacal cackle as well, as it brings me great joy whenever I got to hear it.

RIP Ryan
