This sucks so much.
I loved scoops, it really got me through some tough mornings.
Patrick was always the nicest guy when I met him at conventions. Would take time out of his busy schedule to have a real conversation with fans.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
Thank you Patrick for all the talent and content you've brought to the site these past years. It feels weird to say this, but I'm pretty sure that the world has bigger plans for you than this silly little gaming website. Most of the time change is good, even though it can be heartbreaking.
PS: I'm amazed that you got the job in the first place after sending an email which didn't have any capital letters in it. I'd have thrown that in the bin straight away, but I guess it just shows what a great judge of talent and character Ryan was.
The Chrono Trigger endurance run was the first piece of Giant Bomb I experienced. I had no idea who these Ryan and Patrick guys were. I did know I was enjoying screaming at them for "dumbness". I had no idea that Giant Bomb would become a part of my daily life. Now they're both gone from Giant Bomb, Patrick at least under happier circumstances. Patrick, you were part of some of my favorite things on Giant Bomb, even if I didn't always care to listen to your voicing for the voiceless. At least we'll always have Spelunky, Binding and Horror games. Good luck Patrick, wherever you roam.
Hate to see you go but nice to see you will continue doing things that fans appreciated you doing here. Hope you decide to do a Demon's Souls run since your Dark Souls adventures while not on here exactly was some of my favourite content of yours. Going to miss you with Alex on Bombin' the AM too and also was nice for you to get people that some of us probably didn't know about and got a understanding to who they are etc.
Goodbye, duder. It's been a fantastic four years with you here. You've done some of my favorite content on the site and it'll be missed (though I'm glad to hear that some of it will return) along with just your general presence on the site. Best of luck in the future!
I needed to read that. Thank you Patrick for so many wonderful moments, features, discussions, and good times. That you won't continue to have more as an editor at Giant Bomb profoundly saddens me as someone who has holds you as an equal among the dudes I've been following for a while longer. Thank you Patrick and I can't wait to see what dumb fun you get up to as part of the GB extended family.
You are the reason I started reading Giant Bomb. Prior to your arrival, Gianb Bomb was pretty much a site with videos. You skills complemented that perfectly. Worth Reading has opened my eyes to many other interesting writers in the industry, offering a much more diverse perspectives than the ones I used to hear. Giant Bomb has been a more interesting site for it.
Also, altough I'll never understand you fascination with horror, I've enjoyed watching you get spooked.
I hope your new job is as awesome as this one was. You certainly deserve it.
Goodbye Patrick! I stumbled upon Giant Bomb relatively late when you were already an established part of the group so it'll be weird without you. I thoroughly enjoyed your part on the website. Your enthusiasm for certain games (including some that would have otherwise gone forgotten on the website), your contribution of your brand of humor, and your place in some big news in gaming. Good luck and I (we) look forward to see you again.
WHAT. THE. FUCK. I opened Giant Bomb for today's GOTY stuff. What the hell man! This wasn't supposed to happen. I walked into a different universe. One I want out of. One where Patrick isn't saying Good Bye! :(
Well I won't do it. I won't say good bye. I'll stick to the cliché with See ya around Buddy!! Good luck on your future endeavours. To those of us who don't regularly check twitter aside from the Giant Bomb feed, do stop back in and let us know where you've landed.
I have a Spookin' with Scoops downloaded I haven't got around to watching yet. It'll be hard when I do. It better not be the last!!
Later, Patrick. Good luck! You'll be missed.

You weren't always appreciated by some members of this community, but that never stopped you from continuing to share your passion, knowledge, and talents with us. You did an amazing job for this site and this community, and you will be greatly missed.Thank you for all the laughs and the scares, but above all, thank you for 4 wonderful years of hard work!.
Good luck with everything, Patrick! Till that sunny day :')
Goodbye and good luck Scoops! You will be greatly missed on this site. I have come to enjoy and respect your contributions to the site so damn much. There was nothing like waiting for late night spooks and knocking back a few cold ones while watching you scare yourself shitless for our entertainment. Thank you so much for everything!
