Former Gamespot editor and Giantbomb co-founder Ryan Davies has unfortunately died at the age of 34, 1979-2013.
Giant Bomb have sadly reported the news earlier today. The cause of death was not given.
Mathew Rorie stated “Ryan was a good friend to all of us“. He went on to say “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.”
Recently married, Ryan worked at Gamespot before jumping ship shortly after Jeff Gerstmann’s controversial exit. After leaving he co-founded Giant Bomb and became one of the sites prominent figures.
We here at VGU give Ryan’s friends and family our deepest condolences and our most sincere sympathies. We offer them our best wishes during this time.
I personally remember enjoying reading Ryan’s reviews on Gamespot and being one of the individuals that inspired me to want to work in the games industry. The world has lost a great talent.
