God dammit. I'm still not over it. I wish I was in a dream and tomorrow I'll wake up and everything's back to normal with Ryan Davis back at Giant Bomb.

The worst part is imaging what his wife must be going through. I couldn't even begin to imagine what it would be like to be with someone for so many years and finally after getting married to lose that person after only a few days.

Everyone who was at GameSpot during those golden years knows him, and will remember him.

R.I.P, Mr. Davis. This is the first I have ever heard of you, but less than a minute of this tribute shows that you are the kind of man that anyone could befriend within seconds.

I did not know who he was, but I still feel kind of sad for him.

The first time I ever saw a video review for a game, and was introduced to online information for games, was by a Ryan Davis review for DBZ.


I remember you buddy!

I loved this tribute so much, it was just all happy moments showing times I think he had rooted deep in his memories, by the way, that pencil sketch was the best, haha! Great video GameSpot

Another great person lost to complications with obesity. Its not a misconception, alot of gamers are overweight. And fyi fatal sleep apnea almost always comes from complications of being overweight.  Regardless, you'd be a fool to believe his weight played no part in his death at such an early age.#RipRyan

Ryan's jokes were sharp and witty, TNT will never be the same. It must be so melancholy for the GB guy's at the moment.

lol who took that bright white epic jesus-like picture of him on the gamespot home page? What someone from gamespot was like "here let me take an ultra high res picture of you with an epic white backdrop just in the unlikely case you might die in the near future"??

Probably heart disease from his overweight.

Number one death cause in the US, you guys need to do something about your eating habits.

Not bashing anyone or making fun, but it's a serious health issue.

Rest in peace. Condolences to his wife, family, and friends.

Never paid attention to him much b/c he never reviewed the games I was most interested in. But i do remember him having the most unbiased, level-headed reviews. The video game industry lost a great reviewer, and also (apparently) a person with a great heart.

@PhillyKuts The world would be a much better place if we could replace you with him.

@k1fry67He died from sleep apnea.

You should inform yourself before before jumping to a conclusion and give health lessons, dude.

@Warlord_Irochi He suffered from sleep apnea but that wasn't the cause of death.  He was found dead at home sitting at his computer.

@Romangelo Not exactly, although overwheight rises the chances it is not the direct cause. Besides,  k1fry67  prejudiced with "heart disease". I was pointing that out.
