I get super emotional whenever someone leaves the GB family.

All the best, Pat. You're hair is dumb but I like you.

Have fun workin' at the Official Weezer Fansite.

As bummed as I am, I'm excited for wherever we'll see you at next, Patrick! This was a great read, even if it did put a little mist in my eyes. :')

Not sure why, but some combination of the "new office" tweets, and seeing you on the couch for the recaps again, had me feeling like this was coming. Thanks for the hard work, and good times -- I'll definitely miss you, Scoops.

Wishing you all the best.

95% of the time you were a great addition to the site, and very professional. 5% of the time you were a hypocritical and shameless asshole for no apparent reason, and it's those moments that I remember most, unfortunately. I wish you the best of luck, and to turn the 95% to 100%!

Shit.

Shit...you're killing me man! Half the reason I wanted to work with GB/CBSi was to work with you! Ahhh can't blame a guy for wanting to move on with life. I hope whatever you've got lined up is as big if not bigger for you. You're one of the best the business has seen.

I'll miss you man, spookin is one of the best things I never knew I wanted until it happened. You've come a long way and I'm glad you stayed in the beginning when people were being terrible, you showed them what you were worth.

Much, MUCH love, duder.

Thanks for all the great content on GB the past few years. I'll miss the podcasts, Spookin' videos, and discovering a lot of cool games with you Patrick. Best of luck in whatever you do next. You will be missed in the Giant Bomb community. It won't be the same without you man.

You're right, Patrick, there are things that you said or did that I disagreed with, but I can't say it didn't help open my eyes to something new. And I've always enjoyed your interactions with the other guys. But you know what they say: "Once a Giant-Bomber, always a Giant-Bomber." :) Good luck to you, sir.

Never been the biggest fan of your work but the sheer amount of content you've put out alone is undeniable. You kept the site going with interesting features in that dark time between Ryan's passing and Dan's hiring. It takes a big guy to admit to his own "growing pains." And the community definitely had to mature alongside you. But that's all water under the bridge now. In some way, it makes me appreciate you more that we've somehow shared this indirect producer-consumer relationship and mutually grown from it. I'm sure this was a tough decision to make. Good luck in your future endeavors, you will be missed. <>

Thanks for the perspective you brought to the site, Patrick! I loved the work you did on Worth Reading and Worth Playing, but most importantly all the creative interviews and think pieces. You were Giant Bomb's secret afro'd weapon.

I guess the most helpful thing I can say is good luck, and thanks for the inspiration!

Your trip to Iceland with Drew was the very first video I watched from Giant Bomb because a friend of mine shared it on another gaming website. That ended up being the day I became a fan of Giant Bomb and it's been a blast following your work ever since. I'm really sad to see you go, but I'm looking forward to whatever you have cooked up in the future. Good luck, Patrick! :D

Best of luck going forward, Patrick. You've brought so much insightful and interesting content to the site and it shall be missed. That and your writeup's have always been the most heartfelt ones on the site, it really does seem you got to focus to do your own thing and it shows. Big love and keep on keepin' on!

PS did you just slyly throw a "Brad is leaving Giant Bomb" reference here?

Patrick your voice will be missed here. You gave a lot of video game nerds some real issues to consider and form opinions on that we otherwise may have ignored. I'll miss you on the site and chances are I'll be keeping up with you wherever life takes you next. Later duder.
