In Memorium: Your favorite Ryan Davis moments.

#1 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12572 posts) -

If someone's already started doing this in one of those other threads, I apologize. The forums are a bit crazy right now. But I figure we should celebrate Ryan Davis in the only way that we the internet can: with embedded video and audio clips. I'll start.

As someone who's edited a bunch of quick looks, fucking every single quick look of Ryan and Vinny.

I'm sure that Ryan would love the shit out of how ironically dark this video has become.

Too damn many of the quick looks & bombcasts come to mind but think that I'm going to start watching those quick looks again as well as listening to those bombcasts.

A link for others to enjoy Ryan's own brand of humor & insight that he brought to the world.

edit-rewatching the contents of the list & here's the ones rewatched so far with the INFAMOUS Ryan in it (plenty of other good ones on the list). many other great moments there but here are some of my favorites.

Raving Rabbids Travel in Time

Sims3 demo

Skate 3 demo

Gunstringer Wavy Tubeman DLC


Incredible Crisis

Rise of Nightmares

Fast Draw Showdown

Kinect Disneyland Adventures with Will Smith

Hey everybody it's Tuuuuesday.

I listen to TONS of fucking podcasts and no host has ever held a candle to Ryan-Fucking-Davis in my book.

I really loved when he talked about how some mainstream newspaper mentioned his Assassin's Creed 2 video review and quoted him out of co text saying things about the game's glorious assassination variety.

Also, wearing a Fuck Ryan Davis shirt just got a whole lot weirder...

Cried laughing watching this segment.

When I need to laugh and cry at the same time, I'll come back to this thread. I'm greatly looking forward to it, plus it'll buy me some time to come up with my favorite moment(s).

The fucking lump in my chest is hard enough to deal with at work.

Flush one down for a fallen homie

#23 Posted by GoombahMIke (64 posts) -

Every time he would give that great, deep belly laugh in reaction to something insane Jeff said. It was pure happiness in audio form.

#24 Edited by MSX2 (45 posts) -

Yeah, that laugh of his.

#25 Posted by theveej (895 posts) -

I am going to watch all of these tonight, please post as much you can everyone.

I was thinking if the community can make a long video of the best of Ryan Davis? I want like a 12 hour epic. There is so much good stuff to reminisce about

Damn, what a sad day.

Probably one of the best streams ever. Felt like a fever dream. It was where Ryan ate a Smucker's Uncrustables. RIP.

This is probably my favorite. This is the most legitimately happy I think I ever saw Ryan.

It's a classic. Makes me just feel awful inside, but good at the same time? I don't even know what to do with myself now.

I am literally sobbing like a bitch thanks duders and thanks to the GB crew in dota for helping me not fall apart

#39 Posted by Glottery (1480 posts) -

Listened to him groaning over Wiiware releases in the podcast just yesterday...and mocking Wii in the Silent Hill - Shattered Memories QL last night...don't feel like linking those now, though. Think I'll have to wait 'till tomorrow.

#40 Edited by MocBucket62 (1350 posts) -

Seeing Ryan get giddy over seeing young Brad Muir as a programmer for Alter Echo made me smile and laugh big time!

Edit: I also want to say that the Rider Meets Horse, Horse Meets Rider moment with Ryan Davis was one of my first and favorite quick look memories ever and got me hooked onto this website!

I'm hurting inside right now. These videos are helping.

#43 Posted by leinad44 (558 posts) -

Damn, you beat me to it! One of the greatest Ryan moments!

#44 Posted by Grissefar (2905 posts) -

Perhaps his best Quick Look

I'll miss him and Vinny screwing around in games, man.

#45 Edited by Excast (1124 posts) -

I always loved this video. The great laugh. The good natured ribbing.

The part where Ryan realizes just how fucking awesome the music is is like pure video game joy in a bottle.

Also, just how much fun he and Patrick are clearly having.

#49 Edited by hermes (1706 posts) -

Every single "This ain't no game" video...

Just as a sample:

Also, the moment during the last PAX when he drinks breast milk...
