As announced on the Bombcast, Ben is ending his time at Giant Bomb after Game of the Year has concluded. Please use this thread to wish him the best and appreciate the time he has been here.
If you have nothing good to say, keep it to yourself. The other mods and I will not tolerate any wild speculation about new hires or the "real reason" why Ben or other staff members have left. Please keep it civil and give @benpack a warm goodbye.
I for one will always fondly remember Ben Appetit Jan Can Cook.
