    I know this name might not mean anything to most of you but Ryan Davis, senior editor of the awesome video game site GiantBomb.com, suddenly passed away this week. He was 34 and had gotten married only a week before.

    He was a huge man with an equally huge personality. He steered the ship over there and as a part of that team produced, without question, the most informative, funniest and entertaining video game-related content ever seen on the internets.

    Davis also did a feature called 'This Ain't No Game', where he reviewed all of the video game movies that had been made so far. The whole archive of those episodes is here and is well worth a look.

    He will be missed. [​IMG]

    They didn't release the official cause of death other than he "died in his sleep from natural causes". So my guess would be massive heart attack.

    Here's a shock. Apparently it was sleep apnea that killed him.

    I wonder how JImmy's apnea is going since he lost so much weight. I imagine it must have helped.

    Worthless comment - he looks like one of the American Pickers.

    I was going to guess apnea myself but Cash beat me to it.
