I honestly thought this was some kind of dumb joke when I first found this on Reddit. However, when I clicked through to find the article on Giant Bomb itself, chills went down my spine.

     As an avid listener and watcher of Giant Bomb content,  just yesterday I was watching Ryan, Jeff and Brad Miur play Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. I told my brother how Ryan was such a funny and charismatic guy and that I had missed him the past week in the videos and show.

     I think I can speak for everyone at Xbox Uncut when I say that Ryan will be sorely missed. We will always remember him as the witty and charming man that co-founded the best gaming site in existence.

     We ask you to please go through the link below and leave your respects on Giant Bomb.


Ryan Davis passed away on July 3rd. He was 34.

Obviously we’re all stunned over here. Ryan was a good friend to all of us. It’s odd to remember that, for someone who could be so acerbic at times, and despite knowing him for almost a decade, I honestly don’t recall ever actually being mad at him. He had an unconventional type of kindness that expressed itself more strongly the longer one knew him, and despite his teasing nature, he always managed to make his close friends feel loved when his attention turned towards you.

Many of you know that Ryan was recently married. In the face of this awfulness, many of us will at least always remember him as we last saw him: outrageously, uproariously happy, looking forward to his next adventure with the biggest grin his face could hold.

The consolation we can feel from that is miniscule compared to the hole that Ryan’s absence will leave in our lives. That’s not a hole that is possible to fill; it’s just something that we’ll just have to get used to walking around with, and that will not happen for a long, long time.
