Giant Bomb announced yesterday that video game journalist Ryan Davis has passed away. Davis was the co-founder of Giant Bomb, a hugely popular site within the video game community. He leaves behind his wife, having gotten married only one week prior to his death, and a devoted following of fans.

I remember attending the Cards Against Humanity panel at PAX Prime last summer where Ryan Davis served as a guest host. He was a tremendously funny guy with great warmth and charisma.

I would like to offer our condolences to his family, his co-workers at Giant Bomb, and his fan base.
