Dammit Danny! Can't wait to see what you'll do next, always been a big fan of everything you've done at Gamespot.

... how can I be a "massive Gamespot fan" when everyone is leaving the site... :( . Kevin, Chris and now Danny... WHY oh WHY!
Danny was a real gem, he always spoke from his heart and always told the stone cold truth. And his shows... You will be missed.
Anyway I wish you the best luck in your new journey and I only hope we will hear from you in the future.

P.S. Peter Brown don't you DARE leave your ass too :) ... I'm serious!

Sad to see Danny go, best of luck! Curious to see where he pops up next. As long as he's alive there's still hope for more Points to be had :)!

Question why don't you guys edit out the first 6 minutes of pointless crud- like the music but everything else seems not needed?

Really gonna miss you Danny, it makes me feel old seeing you go. End of an era man. I'll never forget how hard I laughed watching that Random Encounter episode Hunting unlimited 2010. So many good memories to name them all here, you really made Gamespot for me. Best of luck where ever life takes you.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.

COME ON!?! First Kevin VanOrd and now Danny O'Dwyer? Why do the best people, who create the most interesting content that keeps this site above the level of just a video game ad site, and who actually progress the status and zeitgeist of the industry, keep leaving? Or maybe Gamespot just has it in for anyone with two capital letters in their last name?

Going to miss seeing Danny on here and all the great content he brought to the site. Good luck in whatever you've got planned for the future Danny. You'll be sorely missed I have no doubt.

Bye Danny and good luck, from one Irishman abroad to another.

Gamespot needs to move the f@ck out of San Francisco if it wants to retain the services of the ‘adults’ among their staff, it obviously doesn’t pay enough for a grown man or woman to live there (cost of housing/start a family) but relies on perpetual student/intern types living 10 to an apartment, IGN MKII

There was nothing particularly special about Danny other than he was a grown arsed man with a much needed Irish & British sense of humour/perspective on the proceedings but I'm done with gamespot until his replacement is someone similar.

Can't wait to see your influence from afar on this show and wish you all the good fortune in what you have aimed your dream sights on for the next adventure. From this fan You made this site something special that it wouldn't have been without you :) (Enjoy all of the folks that have made GS into what it is but you've been a huge influence for me)

I started watching the gamespot content thanks to you, Danny, from Random Encounter to EFMS to Secret Code and The Point. I loved all the programs you made and this community will miss you a lot. Thank you for all your work, for your sense of humor and your thoughtful insights in the videogame world. If you wanted to make gamespot a cool place, you made it. Greetings from Spain and good luck with future projects!

I'm shocked that no-one saw Danny's departure coming,I predicted this a good couple of months ago. Watch a couple of his previous videos and you'll see what I mean.

Anyhow, adios Danny and all the best for the future.

See ya round Danny, I'll miss your articles and videos. I only started coming to gamespot to watch your random encounter videos when someone online posted a link in a comment, then proceeded to watch all the old ones and keep up to date with the new and followed that up with the point (also great).

On the subject of playing Duke Nukem as a kid, those games had a parental lock feature that removed the sexual content. I think it may have removed blood too? I just remember being psyched when I figured out the password my parents set and being able to see all that stuff uncensored.

Loved your content Danny! Sad to see you go. Hope to see you on here and Giant Bomb randomly in the future.

Long time lurker and I don't post much, but I thought I'd say adios Danny it was fun.

I'm going to assume Danny is leaving to make a documentary about gaming (in a war zone?) as he's talked about wanting to do a zillion times.

Farewell, Danny. I'm not sure what Gamespot is going to be without you. This site has some mighty large shoes to fill in your absence.

Whenever I need a pick-me-up, I watch Danny's video of him playing the original Half-Life Deathmatch. I wish you luck.

@dannyodwyer wasn't surprised when I heard you were leaving but it did happen a lot sooner than I expected. I guess that's because you're very good at what you do and your career has advanced much faster than most.

There are a lot of things that could be said but one in particular, I like that you almost never let negative things get to you, or at least you didn't show it by fighting back with more negativity. Even in cases where most would agree someone deserves to be called out, "shamed" so to speak, whatever, and even knowing you would have the support of fans if you did that, you chose not to.

I think that reflects the kinda person you are in your life outside of the internet, the kinda person you were before you ever worked at Gamespot, and the kind of person you will continue to be. To put it simply, a good person, honest, genuine, and compassionate.

Danny, you are one of the best hosts ever! I'm not just talking about video game hosts either. You are one of the the last TRUE journalists. I work in television and your work never ceases to amaze me. I wish you the best in all of your endeavors!

P.s. Peter Brown & Mary Kish... Never leave!!!!!!

I've watched the lobby from day one and I couldn't imagine anyone presenting the show as good as Danny.

He was perfect at it. I'm going to miss seeing him on the lobby.

I'd like to wish him the best for the future.

I think he has an excellent future ahead and whatever he does will be great.

Cheers Danny.

I wish Danny was leaving to work at Giant Bomb. Danny's escape from mount stupid videos are the reason that I started paying attention to Gamespot again and from that learned about Giant Bomb.

With Kevin gone and now Danny leaving I wonder how GameSpot will keep the old die-hard fans coming. I am gonna miss their great insights and ability to make games more then just...games. All the best and I hope that GameSpot has some good talent to replace two titans.

Whats up with the mass exodus of good talent from this site? Danny oDwyer and Kevin Vanord were the main reason I still came to this site after like a million years. Crappy.

@Iloveconnie: I think it's just a normal thing that happens every now and then. Although Danny seems to have progressed his career faster than most, he's very good at what he does.
