Thanks, Ryan

I never really got the chance to talk with the late Ryan Davis, co-founder of Giant Bomb.  But after 10+ years of making me laugh and cuss about all things gaming, I feel a profound sense of loss after hearing about his sudden death this past weekend. News of his passing quickly rushed through the Twitter-sphere and shortly after, fans, colleagues, and family shared condolences and stories of Ryan’s life and work.

I met Ryan once at Pax East in a quick pass-by in a hallway. I told him  I loved his work and that I wanted to make a site that used the Giant Bomb formula of covering things they really cared about. He gave me a quick smile and was gone. Honestly, that was all I needed from someone that I really admired, and I appreciated the exchange no matter how brief it was. That day was very cool but the day he, Dave Lang, and I had this Twitter exchange was even better.

Ryan Davis tweets about his love for MC Serch.

Much love and respect to you, Ryan Davis.
