Tfw Jontron will surpass Game Grumps in subscribers pretty soon.
Game Grumps are picking up scraps.
tfw you've never watched one of these online game reviewers
Jon already has shitloads of respect from Grant Kirkhope, who has said that he loves JonTron.
Grant, by the way, has never said anything about Game Grumps past his original guest appearance.
>tfw you don't watch youtubers and don't read "professional" reviews or any gaming journalism website whatsoever
The thing is Game Grumps will make nearly 10x more money than Jontron regardless because of the sheer ammount of content that shit out
>Watching e-celeb shit.
But honestly since Jon did a full 360 he is watchable now. He use to be a Redditard loud screamer almost Dane Cook tier, but now he is a Redditard screamer who is mildly entertaining.
Doesn't really matter. GameGrumps has their fan-base and already make a fuck load of money. I love them both, seeing either do well makes me happy.
I bet you don't realize how stupid that sounds.
>tfw you don't even play or care about vidya anymore
>tfw you've reached a higher state of human being and don't care about anything anymore
Good. Jon was the only good part of Game Grumps anyway, so the guy deserves the attention he gets. He's pretty much the only 'e-celeb' worth a shit anymore. The guy was smart to go back to doing what he loved doing.
It's a shame that all the other popular 'x reviewer' on the internet blows. Doug Walker shot his channel in the head when he stopped doing his show, and then came back when he realized his channel was sinking fast (but was too late the moment he stopped).
James Rolfe is too busy playing movie director and realizing that not only did his movie suck, but he's going bald and is likely bankrupt because of his choice of shooting location. The guy even came out and said that shooting where he did was a huge fucking mistake.
Then all the rest of the 'reviewers' are just shitty copies, the worst of which shoehorn stupid fucking plots into their reviews that have nothing to do with the content they're reviewing. Angry Joe, Irate Gamer, Movie Bob, Caddy, the list fucking goes on. AVGN went autistic a few episodes and did dumb pretendo plot shit and then all of a sudden everyone else thinks it's a good idea to elaborate on.
It's a shame, because I'd love to support people creating new content on the internet, it's just that none of it's actually good.
8:47 a blank post scrolls in
Ok, so Jon is cool and all, and I really liked gamegrumps when he was on it. I never really watched Jontron stuff OR Egoraptor stuff before gamegrumps started up - I don't remember how I heard about it either. Haven't watched any grumps shit since he left, and I think arin is a complete cunt.
But I've just had a check of Jon's channel and he releases a video probably once a month at most, usually even slower. What the fuck does he do that makes him so busy? Strange how there's so much hype over videos when they're so few and far between
Sorry for the pleb question - I don't really buy into this whole e-celeb thing and I've only just dipped my nose in to see what the fuss is all about.
I unsubscribed from Game Grumps the other day.
>>259587298 This was the first reason and the second was the fact that they've started putting Suzy on Steam Train and she's in that new Five Nights at Freddy's series they started yesterday.
Jon literally does everything himself. He gets help on the other collab things he does on other channels, but everything you see on his channel was shot, written, directed, and edited by him.
>His Daikatana review still has me fucking dying every time.
Why'd it have to end?
>but everything you see on his channel was shot, written, directed, and edited by him.
Nightshade was done with Arin's help
since yknow it was shot in his house and everything
And I'm pretty sure he's had other people help with shooting and editing
parakeets are super easy to keep. I had one named Zelda who stuck around for awhile and didn't need much upkeep beyond feeding her and cleaning her cage.
Ended up laying at least 10 eggs. All blanks, but still cool.
>All of those guests who clearly don't want to be there
Getting exposure on shows you don't like is the hardest part of the industry.
>The Stamper episode
God, how badly did he want to leave?
Female parakeets are great because they keep their mouth shut, males however drive you crazy because they never shut the fuck up, they only get quiet if they're either sitting on you or can see you.
>Arin hasn't released an animation in a year
>Arin records GG/ST once or twice a week
>Just playing video games anyway
>5 days a week he does literally nothing
I hate these fucking people
He's feeling stifled by Game Grumps, and that he's not being recognized as an animator so much as "that guy who everyone hates on GG"
If that happened I wouldn't be surprised if they lost like half of their subs. Suzy is so fucking unfunny and contributes absolutely nothing. I thought their fn@f might actually be interesting before it turned out it was her instead of Dan. Instead it's pure shit
how else should I describe it? it's like that green hoodie guy on that speedrunner event. why would I want to listen to someone's completely insipid commentary on old games while he's trying his darndest to come off as sincerely upset
can't wait to see the next gag which most likely will be a clip from the game showing something weird which then cuts to jon making cute noises. or maybe there will be a hand flying around pointing at the funny pixel characters, that sure is worthy entertainment for discerning adults
The thing is, while his first like five videos are extremely AVGN-like, his later material has way more out-there jokes and unexpected turns, which imo make it much better. Hell, the Review? series is something completely new.
>not listening to 4 guys having fun on a long friday night
>not appreciating Something Awful's finest. Well, aside from the Dark Id's drakenguard's playthrough
My condolences. Oh well.
nah James Rolfe is still cool
I watched a video from some convention where he had other retro games youtubers try and play Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and they just talked about it
James spent the entire time laughing and joking about the game, he seemed like he was enjoying himself and was being really chill
I do think the AVGN character is a little old now
Reminder that Spazkid draws mario characters and various things from normies to furries getting their assholes gaped and creamed and was super fucking embarrassed by the groomps and trying to turtle his own face into his shoulders.
>yfw Danny is somewhat trying to be funny
>yfw Ross sounds and acts like he really wants to fucking leave
>yfw Barry can't think on his own
>Yfw Arin and Suzy are unfunny and destroyed whatever was good from gamegrumps
Well you kinda proved your own point there.
I prefer to hear a bit more than just 'guys having fun'. That's why I enjoyed original gamegrumps; it was a mixture of discussion, good (!) improv jokes and absurd humor. But to each his own, of course.
>Barry can't think on his own
I feel so bad for Barry. People keep saying that Table Flip is partly his show, but it's incredibly obvious he doesn't actually get a say in anything that happens on Table Flip.
That, combined with the fact that he HAS to pretend like Jon, a very good friend of his, doesn't exist is awful.
KungFuJesus' God Hand playthrough was so good, apart from that one episode where they were all hammered and i couldn't understand a word they were saying
although the last part was on some wack ass video site that wanted me to install some shit so I never finished it
I want Matt Chapman to make videos of Strongbad and Homestar playing video games.
>your parakeet will never eat out and lick your ear while you get mad at video games
>tfw Ross is
actually really cute
>tfw he grew up where you live
I don't know what to do with these feelings, /v/.
My brother had an African Grey. It didn't require that much upkeep. Keep his wings clipped, feed him, don't keep him locked up in his cage 24/7, clean his cage regularly. Less trouble than a dog. The only pet that is less trouble is a cat who you let outside so you don't have to clean the litter box.
But this one likes to talk and imitate people laughing. He did impressions and loved to eat jalapenos which made him go crazy.
>Jon and Barry were best friends
>Barry can't even talk about Jon or acknowledge his existence with his job on GG
Arin is tearing them apart.
Shit's creepy. I almost want to believe that it really is Barry making those.
I don't find him funny, but he honestly seems like a pretty cool dude, ignoring the character he portrays himself as for the show.
He probably is. But comedians make the best web personalities. I never even realized but all the obscure people or popular people I've followed on youtube before were always comedians of some form, most doing standup.
Realistically it's probably because a lot of people who subscribe to channels don't actually watch videos as they come out, and sometimes don't watch videos on said channel at all.
But I'd like to believe that it's because people are waiting for a decent Game Grumps to come out, so they check each new video, realize that it's not funny, then tell others not to watch it because it's "meh".
the problem is that he's too uncaring about the games. while he's a tolerable human being his commentary is inconsequential and he's too much of a yes-man when it comes to arin. even jon was better in that regard
Having watched the majority of all Game Grumps content, I have to say that the only time they've made me laugh in recent times, post-'Ode to Jon' was when they read anti-jokes straight off a fucking list in a later episode of Shovel Knight.
The humor is just too fucking mundane now.
I really don't know why Danny agreed to be on Game Grumps, he doesn't play video games past a few he played when he was a kid. And honestly? I don't fault him for that, but bringing him into a gaming channel just seems kind of weird.
My little brother still watches them all but he's a junior in high school. He's subscribed to about a dozen other youtube gamer people, and even though he's taken up game grumps as his new favorite, I think it's a fad with him and his favorite people are still Yogscast. Mostly because he still plays minecraft more than most other games.
>tfw Yogscast used to be good too
>tfw they slowly started pandering more and more to 12 year olds
>tfw it went from "just some friends joking around and being idiots" to a cynical cashgrab
I just want another real Yogpod.
>watch Jontron for first time
>Joe & Mac review
>screams like the most unfunny autistic faggot ever about how game forces you to pick up weaker weapons than you currently have
>completely ignores the fact that select lets you change weapons at any time
how in the fuck do people watch this shit again?
you can't take a single word on that podcast seriously
and then some of their (presumably true) IRL stories are even weirder. Like when Simon electrocuted himself whilst high and Lewis' LARPing experience
Thanks, guys. You reminded me to relisten to all the drunk tank podcasts up to around 150. Shit is golden.
>my face whenever Gus and Burnie get into a screaming match
Ok so there are three categories
First are people who talk about the game and its faults and features, weighs their opinion and taste to give their take on it. They don't always show clips of them playing it but get more cred for doing so. When people learn to trust your judgement they will keep watching.
second are people just playing the game and having fun, they're trying to be like a friend showing off a game by playing it and letting you watch. You might decide you like it because of what you see of the game. They are better when there are two or more of them in the video and not just one person talking to themselves. If they and the other person have good chemistry they fall into the third category.
The third are people trying to make you laugh, entertain you, where the game they are playing isn't the main source of entertainment, it's their charm, humor, or personality keeping you watching.
Most people do at least two of the above, usually at the same time, sometimes all three, sometimes all in separate videos. But really you need two to keep viewers.
That's why I said up to 150. If it doesn't have a combination of Gus, Burnie, Geoff, or Joel, I don't listen to it. Brandon was a treat when he first started appearing, though. Fucker is dumb as shit.
I never understand why Geoff stays off the podcast now. I know i've heard its because he ratted out his wife as a furry so she doesn't let him on, but idk about that.
He's become a huge faget on achiv hunter though. God everything by roosterteeth has gone to shit. It's weird considering all the same people are still there.
man eventually game grumps is going to be just arin and suzy and when that happens, their going to change game grumps into something called "couples gaming" and get a bunch of fucking gaming couple like them to play
