I've been a fan of Giant Bomb since before it was even thought of. I used to binge watch On The Spot (the seminal Rich Gallup hosted live show on Gamespot), desperately trying to get my aching AOL dsl to watch it live. I loved the personalities and now, about 12 years later, I realise that I've grown up with these people. I started watching on the spot when I was 12 and I'm 24 now. Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, Brad, Drew, Alex and more recently Rorie, Dan and Jason - I've gotten to know these people (in a weird way) without them knowing me at all.

This is a video game website but my god over the years it has been so much more. So many hard times, so many good times, so much travelling, so much change... most of it (and I mean a large majority) of it done with a Bombcast in my ear or a quick look in the background.

Having something there so light, so funny - like a group of freinds getting together just to a have a laugh - can change your mood when times are tough, can brighten those duller days, can break out a laugh on those tired journeys and dark nights.

I was just thinking about all this having resubbed, realising that I will probably be resubbing for my entire life (or as long as they'll allow me). And so to the whole Giant Bomb crew I just want to extend my thanks... something you've recieved from so many fans I'm sure and so many more to come...but this is my thanks, a fan whose been with you from the beginning, whose been helped along in innumerable ways by your constant stream of hilarity.

My favourite Giant Bomb Moments:

1. Swedish Candy

2. Age of Booty Rum

3. All episodes of TANG

4. New Super Mario Bros. Wii Quick Look

5. End of Xbox Live

6. Quake TNT

7.Australian Beef

8. 2008 GOTY GTA VS MGS

9. TGS Trip

10. Please Don't Shake The Baby

TY GB!

On my phone so can't post a video but Ryan is a NARC is a moment that happened on one of my first bombcasts and its a nostalgic moment for me. Hilarious, insightful and a bit of a heartbreaker because of Ryan's passing. It is my go to thing if I just need a laugh or to remember Ryan but to me it's THE moment of GB and nothing will pass it from my point of view.

Also love the Yelp conversation from early 2013, very funny.

EDIT: How is the Yelp conversation not on youtube? This is insane. It's this episode and its like the first 20 minutes of the podcast.

Not a singular moment but GB during the height of the Kinects popularity was an absolute goldmine.

Too few videos in this thread, considering the website.

The Dead Island TNT in which Jeff and Patrick lose their shit watching the glitched truck flip out. Also the truck battle that ensues later is a great moment.

On my phone so can't provide a link but...one of my all time favorite moments was Jeff on Saints Row 3 and the "Strap it on" tag. Just fucking phenomenal.

The greatest moment is "Knife VS Bat" which was beautiful animated by Lackingsaint

Actually, I'm fond of every single time they debate about Sonic or Duke even as long as the HotSpot, but lets keep it current

I love the E3 when they rented the house in Compton to talk about Sims gang signs, any time they talk about Triple H hair physics as a generation graphic benchmark, Ryan saying to Vinny "don't get a driving wheel"..... and for some reason..... Ryan talking about buying a bed has been one that's been with me for a long time. I'm reminded I was dating a girl, and had like a 3 hour bus ride to see her in Boston and those long bombcasts helped me out.
