According to this post over at Gaming Groove, Billy "Wicked" Wilson has passed away. Billy was really one of the fore-fathers of the whole internet gaming scene with Voodoo Extreme (before they were bought out by IGN) and I think all of us in the gaming community mourn his passing. I never had the opportunity to meet the guy but I read his site religiously for years and his impact on me and the gaming scene in general is significant. He was one of the first sites I remember reading where he took shots at the developers and expressed real opinions about games and the industry. I didn't always agree with what he had to say but you always enjoyed reading his opinion. Good-bye Billy, we'll miss you.
