On Thursday, January 29, friend and former Joystiq editor Andrew Yoon tragically drowned while on vacation in Austin, Texas. He was 29.
wow. so sad. he even had a game planned for release at the end of this month. rest in peace.
..................... *moment of silence*......................
Drowning and burning alive ... absolutely terrifying ways to leave this Earth.
Damn I'm only 6 months 30 and feel blessed to hear someone pass younger than you. So sorry to hear this news. So eerie to die so young.
This one of the reasons why I don't travel even though I have the capital to do so. I would suspect foul play. That say he was a weak swimmer but come on the water isn't that deep. They said 7-8 feet deep. Andrew Yoon is a smart guy surely he would have tried to jump when he touched the ground. And who goes swimming by the themselves when they travel to visit friends? Sounds suspicious.
R. I. P.
damn!! sad very sad news, rest in peace my fellow gamer...
Yep. Condolences to his friends and family. For everyone else, be careful out on the water. Fatigue can sneak up on you like you wouldn't believe. Doubly so if you've been drinking (not sure if he was). Almost happened to me once.
Fatigue should have absolutely nothing with drowning in calm, reasonably warm water, if you really know how to be in that water. I really didn't want to join in on this conversation until I read your comment . Just stop already, a man died and you figure that fatigue shouldn't be an issue ? smh ....
Cobra, shut the fuck up. Swimming and walking are two different things.. I can't die while walking while I almost drowned when I turned 18 if it hadn't been for my friend that saved my life.
i believe you guys didnt quite fully understand what cobra was trying to say
Rest in peace. Too young :(
That's too young for anyone. RIP.
dam man, so young. sorry your family is mourning for you right now, bro. RIP.
Tragic ...Condolence's to the Yoon family & friends.
RIP - nobody should day at 29....
Sad news. My condolences to his loving family and friends.
My condolences to the Family, loved one & Friends . R.I.P Mr Andrew Yoon. (How does this get a disagree)
Some stupid people think its ok to disagree with people giving condolence. Kids or adults with the mentality of kids.
Or you know, insensitive jerks. Not all kids are insensitive though.
Your comment is fine enough, maybe they wanted more insight and elaboration of a concept not mentioned yet. You know any basic monkey could say what you did, not that it is wrong, just not spectacular...if your gonna get on the floor brutha they want you to dance it up.
R.I.P Andrew *Salute*
Damn that sucks. Rest in peace bro!
Damn. R.I.P ... You never know when it's your time to leave this earth.. Live and Love man.
Rest in peace, Andrew.
That is much too early 29 is so young R.I.P.
29 man, WTF. Seriously, thoughts go out to his friends and family. R.I.P brother...
My condolences to his family and close friends. A tragic reminder of how short lived life can be. Live everyday to it's fullest.
i have to say...if he wasnt living that dsy "to his fullest" in this super deep circular 100ft pond, he wouldnt have died. if anything, you should be saying live everyday to your fullest but be safe on top of it and THINK things through.
Really....? Living life to its fullest does not mean be reckless and irresponsible....
Damn same age as me. Drowning is such a horrible thing to experience RIP good sir.
Such a shame. He always sounded like a fantastic guy on the podcasts I heard him on.
R.I.P bro, my condolences to family and friends.
Tragic. Prayers for his family and loved ones.
R.I.P shakes head 29
Rest in peace. I'll be keeping his family in my prayers.
RIP, Prayers to your family. Why is everyone getting two disagrees on this article? who are the two assholes giving them out?
Yeah there are 4 failed parents out there right now, thinking of how they failed their kids. RIP mate, under 80 is always to young
I'm convinced that there are bots on this site that are built to randomly disagree with people. I think it's supposed to keep us coming back here
na its just nature of N4G users. you can see that disagree counts isn't the same with every comment. if bots then it should be the same
10 crazy messed up kids here then. Grow some balls and get a life.
RIP gone to soon and to young!..
What's with all the disagrees in here? You'd think maybe for once on n4g.... with somebody having died, we might agree for a change! Very sad news, r.i.p Andrew :(
Rest In Paradise Bro.
Really sad news. R.i.p.
So sa. Rest in peace.
No age to die, cant imagine what his family and friends are going through.
Sooo sad man.. Such a bad way to go at such a young age.. I dedicate my next day of gaming to you bro!! R.I.P.
Rip young man
Wow passed away at 29 too young RIP and condolences to family, friends, and colleagues.
These sad news stories :( R.I.P.
Way too young, RIP.
To die that young - that's just awful. R.I.P to a fellow gamer.
The disagrees to people expressing sadness over a death, shows not only the disgusting attitude of many on n4g, but also of the wider world. Its such a shame :(
So sad. Rest In Peace Andrew. My thoughts are with his family and friends. All of our times will come and we will all meet again. Energy like a great person and friend can never be destroyed..I tip my controller to you
R.I.P. Andrew. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
To the sick idiot just stealth disagreeing wtf is your problem? Show some damn respect! Such a shame, really can't imagine how is family are taking this.
This is so sad. Way too young. Rest in peace, Andrew.
RIP. I wish you could tell us how you're feeling right now. Rest well
How did he drown?
So tragic ): Very young....
Always sad when someone has to leave. Thought maybe he had some medical issues but drowning? Not the way to go. :/
