I stopped watching them a while ago, have they gotten better? Also, Game Grumps thread.
Arin still beatboxes. Danny is still a lovable old faggot. Barry is on the show a lot now and is actually good. Ross is still an inflammatory retard. But almost everything has Arin in it so you're better off without watching
And I'll go ahead and post this before/if anyone asks
No, if anything they've gotten significantly worse.
>Suzy is in a shit ton of videos
>Barry is trying to be in videos and just doesn't have much of a personality
>More mindless playthroughs that show how stupid Arin is such as Pokemon Fire Red (up to like part 70 something) or Dark Souls 2 where he actively mocks the viewers for saying he's stupid
>More sellout videos that advertise shitty toys like a car racing phone game...thing
>Dan is still a nice guy that knows nothing about vidya
>Arin still thinks he knows everything about vidya but continues to get things wrong and actively ignores game mechanics, then complains
I could keep going. Occasionally I check back to see if they've done one good LP, but so far every time I do I leave disappointed. I mean for fuck's sake, they've still "playing" that Sakura Spirit VN and just making lolsorandumb voices the entire time.
Just give up anon, there's nothing left of what they once were.
OP here, I'm still subbed to them in order to keep track of them, but most of the time, I don't want to watch them. I enjoy Ross and Barry's dynamic in that Santa Claus game but that was the last time I watched them.

One of the 5 Egoraptors. Egoraptor Epsilon is found on the myterious red and purple planet along with Egoraptor Sigma, and is a master of his school of martial arts. He is half Human, half RaptorDragoon (A crossbreed of a Oviraptor and a standard Mist Dragon). Egoraptor Epsilon is (c) me.\n
A while ago on his tumblr he went back on what he'd said about experimenting with buttons to see what you can do in a game and he refuses to learn pretty much anything these days so yeah, GG keeps on getting worse and worse.
I wish Ross would revolt and Jon would tell what really happened already.
The worst thing is that GG has been shitting up Ninja Sex Party.
I'd personally just unsub and check back like every week or so to see if they've done a worthwhile video. That's what I do since sometimes Steam Train, when it lacks Arin, has some neat stuff. Otherwise it's just another Sakura Spirit or Pokemon video.
Last game they did that I was interested in was Silent Hill 4, which Arin even said was his favorite so I was a bit excited.
>Proceeds to ignore all game mechanics
>Tries to fight every single monster
>Dies to dogs
>Can't figure out how to do basic puzzles without a walkthrough for the first
>Doesn't know how to equip items
>Tries to fight the INVINCIBLE GHOSTS
Either he's a liar and has never played it before or he's just an idiot. No matter which it's sad to see.
>TBFP try to play Leaf Green
>Do a Nuzlocke to at least spice it up a little
>Get up to part 30 or so
>Realize how slow it is and how boring to viewers the fights are
>Instead announce on big stream
>Do a couple hours where all of them visit even Pat who wasn't part of the LP
>Finish up in an insanely hype finale where they barely beat the game
>Apologize at the end and say they hope that made up for all the bullshit
>GG play Fire Red
>Now up to part 70 something and still going
>Basically at the same spot TBFP stopped at part 30
The contrast between the two is always so perfect to me. Especially since, ironically, TBFP did Leaf Green while GG did Fire Red. It's just such a polarizing comparison when you look at how both were handled.
I think Arin's crowning moment of douchebaggery is the intro to his Zelda sequelitis. Just, all of that passive aggressive preemptive bitching and insulting. Near the beginning of Game Grumps he was at least open to debate, now his entire attitude is "I'm right, you're wrong, and fuck you if you disagree" and he maintains that attitude with EVERYONE except Suzy, because naturally he's a whipped faggot.
If Suzy and Arin fucked off and Jon replaced him on the current crew, Game Grumps would pretty much be perfect. Steam Train is really hit or miss these days as well, since the only good series they do are point and click adventures.
For me it was probably Dark Souls 2. Not only did he do his typical bullshit of ignoring all mechanics, but when called out on his stupidity he became a child. He actively mocked viewers for calling him out and even made the fucking thumbnails for videos into this MLG 420 Mountain Dew ironic thing to show how he's taking it "seriously".
It's just such a pissy, immature thing to do. You can ignore fans and just play the game, or you can actively improve and try to change based on what's said. But outright mocking viewers both in content and presentation because you're asshurt is just so childish.
>all of that passive aggressive preemptive bitching and insulting
That's because he tried streaming ALttP back during Jon Grumps and the entire audience gave him shit for being terrible at the game and getting tons of information wrong. He kept trying to justify it with "I-I haven't played in a while" but he ultimately shut the stream down after a few hours because his ass was getting royally melted. For the actual video he wound up using footage of Barry playing, or just ripping it from other videos on youtube.
>gamegrumps is released
>start watching it
>it's just 10 minute videos of two guys being loud as fuck, never making any progress at any games whatsoever
I stopped watching pretty immediately.
>watching after jon left
it was shit for a bit before he left anyway because of tension. sonic 06 is good for a laugh now and then but sometimes its feels of a better time period for gaming. no #GG shit, no shilling....
They needed a fucking walkthrough for POKEMON of all things, I can't believe this shit.
And Arin with his dumbshit opinions, he sounds like a complete idiot 100% of the time. It's so hard to watch.
I like Danny and Ross together on Steam Train more than anything.
I don't understand why they are doing let's plays any more. When they aren't even paying any attention to the game or commenting on it at all, what's the point?
Just make it a podcast. It'd be so much easier to be entertained by it if they could be natural and talk for more than fucking ten minute intervals. It would be so much more entertaining.
Recently stopped watching it once they keep commenting on how late they're playing video games rather than just trying to have a good time playing together. The show is becoming so forced now that its there primary income so they literally force themselves to play for hours just so they can make money. I know its always been for the money but when jon was still there both him and arin actually played video games together for the sake of having fun and just hanging out together.
Arin needs to go fuck himself and put game grumps on hiatus or something since the show is long past being stale as hell To bad he'll never do it
>There a how "you don't play X video" on them just like DSP
But yeah, I think it was suppose to be a podcast. Even on Sonic 06 you can see them not paying attention.
>Danny is far older than Arin
>Jon is younger than Arin
Jon confirmed god tier
Don't worry, it looks she's handling that request herself.
Jon was the worst grump until Arin left, but goddamn does Arin work overtime to be shit now
My problem is he stopped doing actual jokes and just goes with stream of consiousness verbal diarrhea. Yoshi's Cookie was almost nothing BUT Arin doing that shit, to the point that Dan actually called him out on it and told him to actually talk about the fucking game instead of spewing nonsense.
Steam rolled is now effectively kill
Suzy has a gaming channel now too.
Danny already has a mildly successful band. Each of their music videos gets 1m+ views. If even 10% of those viewers spend a dollar on buying a song, he's set for the year in a decent apartment. That's not even counting actual record sales and what he gets for tolerating Arin's shit with Starbomb.
> Yoshi's Cookie was almost nothing BUT Arin doing that shit, to the point that Dan actually called him out on it and told him to actually talk about the fucking game instead of spewing nonsense.
>thw she's internally laughing at this alien
To be fair, ross is going to jump at any opportunity to do animation again because he's made it clear he's not really happy about how the youtube system makes it impossible for independent animators to make a living anymore
I think ross is the only one who really cares anymore, even in the grumpcade intro he goes kind of in depth as to what he wanted steam rolled to be and how it didn't really work out
i just hope ross is the next one to call it quits.
I mean even he knows that he can't survive off of his own animation channel, but i'd rather see him get picked up on some kind of cartoon and be moderately successful than degrade himself further with Grumps.
>I stopped watching them a while ago, have they gotten better?
When Game Grumps first started, right until the very end with Jon leaving: I absolutely fucking loved it. I adored it. I worshiped it- it was practically my religion.
Game Grumps with Jon was like my Saturday morning cartoons. I'd fucking STALK youtube impatiently to wait for those three videos to be uploaded to see what new shenanigans they were up to.
>have they gotten better?
It's shit. It's absolute total and complete shit- I gave them a good, hard, solid try, but it's completely and totally irredeemable. EVERYTHING you've heard in these threads over the months and years is completely true.
The only redeeming quality or silver lining is that Jon has matured so much more from the experience.
Also, can they just stop playing Pokemon Firered and Sakura Spirit? None of it is funny. At all. Whatsoever.
I don't know how you can possibly make 80+ episodes out of Pokemon Firered.
I've only just recently started watching that playthrough and they'd only just gotten Koga. What the hell were they doing for all those episodes?
This is the target audience of Game Grumps.
They're at Sabrina now. They took about 5 episodes to do Silph Co. An hour or more to do a "dungeon" that most 8 year olds cleared in 20 minutes or less. I think they whited out once or had to leave to use the pokemon center, at that.
If they cut out some of the unimportant parts of Firered then it would be watchable at the very least but no. You have to see them go through everything. At least when it was Sonic 06 they did cut stuff out and they actually concentrated at the game and not just goofing around
After I learned that there is a tumblr page for "triggers" in Game Grumps videos, that's where I just said no. This is the kind of crowd that watches this shit excuse for "two guys playing video games while being recorded".
I still watch JonTron's videos though. By himself he's great.
I think she said it isn't a let's play channel, or at least not exclusively. I think she might be making it so that she can have a let's play with Egoraptor in it, but make more profit off of it than she makes on Game Grumps.
They're still fun to watch every now and then. I'm honestly not sure where all the hate comes from. I guess it's just a /v/ thing, primarily.
>Barry is on the show a lot now and is actually good.
He is a Politically Correct faggot. Fuck that jew nigger faggot. He is the worst thing to happen to the channel since Jon left.
god damn it, every time i see her the first thought that immediately springs to mind is "fucking gross." I couldnt even tell you whats wrong, exactly, its just so... sooooo.... WRONG. I feel wrong even just looking at her.
If it keeps her the fuck off of Game Grumps, then I don't care what she does. Hopefully it's because she knows about all of the backlash she gets from trying to tire-iron herself into the group when she has no talents or a sense of humor.
>Didn't want to watch GG at first because who the fuck is this fat annoying guy, I only care about Arin
>Friend convinces me to watch, I fucking love Jon and Arin and how they play off each other
>Every episode is memorable with them for better or worse, with only a few specific episodes being boring or mediocre
>Jon leaves, start to lose faith
>Dan and Arin is actually really funny, good to know this is still a good thing
>Ross is, and always will be, an unfunny cunt and I hate him
>Suzie starts appearing (uh-oh)
>Arin gradually becomes more and more arrogant because they're both straight men, where Jon was the lose cannon giving them a good dynamic. Arin tries to be the funny guy but fails
>Beatboxing, awful game choices trying to relive past success (Sonic, Pokemon, Mario party)
>Danny can't comment meaningfully on any game past the NES era unlike Jon
>Get an office, no longer a show about 2 guys having fun on a couch, it's a full on production
>Barry is no longer the editor (The sound of Air Raid warning sirens can now be heard)
>No funny video edits, continuing series that go on too long due to Arin's incompetence (Wind Waker, Pokemon)
>Steam Train is only funny with Dan + Arin but Ross always shoehorns in
And Arin will never realise why people liked the show to begin with.
>you're not allowed to change your opinion
>>Arin gradually becomes more and more arrogant because they're both straight men, where Jon was the lose cannon giving them a good dynamic. Arin tries to be the funny guy but fails
This, but I don't think it was that gradual.
He tries too damn fucking hard to be whacky because of the hole Jon left.
>Not realising there was an implied hatred now because of how shit Arin is
Arin was fantastic before the split.
Ross isn't funny, ever. I have no idea why people like him. His commentary is boring, he rarely knows anything about the games he plays and the jokes are toddler level.
It's a fucking massive fuckign reversal if you fucking take everything fucking so fucking seriously on the internet fucking. Like he really wished death upon himself for ever doing something like lping. fucking fucking fucking fuckijng fuckjhging
Punch Out, Zelda 1, Mario 2 etc. (the very first Dan + Arin GG) were all really, really good. It was shortly after he realised there were no arguments, no tension, nothing. He needed to 'step up' and be the funny guy.
Also. tweeting is like 4chinning. Some people literally tweet 5 times an hour every day. So everytrhing you say can be very hyperbolic and inconsequential. Because for twitters, it's literally 1. have a thought 2. type it out 3. TWEET and somethings you tweet shit that you regret like louis ck drunk tweeting raping sarah palin without second thought.
a bunch of their early stuff was really good, but then they kinda started developing a formula for each episode.
Also i agree with >>280046492 that Ross just...isn't funny. Suzy and Barry were much better additions to stuff like Steam Train/Rolled.
They really are.
Barry isn't the most upbeat, but he makes good comments, just sparingly. Ross just talks forever without thinking about anything like the basic rules of improv.
Suzie wasn't too bad on... outlast? Some 'scary' game.
I'm Australian, and I'm probably not that much better than him. I don't pretend to be a comedian on the internet, though.
I like Ross because he actually has the balls to call Arin on his bullshit. Barry's just there for a paycheck, Suzy's a domineering whore and Dan is a spineless yes-man. Ross is the closest we'll get to having Jon back.
The last one i watched was their warcraft 3 one which i watched cause i love that game and honestly it was terrible.
Ross really wants to bring the franchise to a bunch of views that know nothing about the series only to have arin interrupt him every single second trying to be funny by making loud noises. It was terrible.
The one time I liked him was at a pannel and someone asked them to so impressions of each other.
Ross did 'Arin's Animations' and just stood still. It was really fucking funny.
Arin does frame by frame animation which looks janky as fuck
I can live with that. My shit taste has even gotten me laid once.
Are you fucking serious? This can't be real!
>this generation knows not the meaning of conviction
>been waiting for Danny to sing something serious for a while now
>see this in my sub box
>mfw it almost legit moved me to tears out of a combination of nostalgia and his fucking amazing voice
Haven't seen the Last Unicorn for damn near fifteen years now, but I watched the fuck out of it as a kid and this..fuck man...
I'll never be able to listen to Danny's stupid sex joke songs again after that.
Jon was the backbone of all the humor on GG. He either initiated or improved every single memorable joke they ever did. He invented the fucking "talk to Barry and make him edit funny shit" gag and that's why it died after he left. Danny has potential to be good, but I get the feeling he's actually kinda nervous to even be there, and too scared of Arin to tell him to shut the fuck up when he goes on long tangents (the fucking Dick Club taking up half of the Katamari playthrough pissed me off like nothing else). GG died after Jon left, and now all we're left with is a festering corpse in a room with an overtly nice young Jewish man just standing awkwardly in the corner trying to play off of it.
Nah, I've heard Cory (Spazkid from SleepyCabin) mention people making fun of him and Arin for having the frame by frame jerky animations.
Go look at Pokeawsome 2 near the end where brock walks down the hallway. It's extremely noticeable there.
I just wanna take a sec incase egoraptor lurks here still to leave the friendly reminder that Egoraptor you are a fucking faggot jew with no integrity, your wife is fugly, and your friends dont like youm its so obvious that even jackoffs on the internet can tell. You can get all the jewtube money in the world but you will never have your integrity back.
Hope you kill yourself, Jon was funnier
Most of /v/
He doesn't, He only visits Reddit where mods eliminate all the hatred and people only suck his dick.
There's actually a sub-reddit dedicated to how bad GG has become, because they can't vent on the regular subreddit.
Yes, Okay, you are right. The intent behind his joke was much simpler than I and other read into it.
Are you happy? Jesus. It's still a valid complaint that Ross could have been making a jab at too.
Game Grumps is ever growing in subs and popularity. How does that make you feel?
If Jon were here, it wouldn't have come to this.
Hell, they specifically featured 'birds' in videos as a way to tell people that the thing was promotional and they were being paid for it
One example was the bird theme in Dead Space, and there was another video for.. Pacific Rim? Where Jon held a ceramic pigeon throughout the video.
I do do that, it's not getting anywhere
Egoraptor/Erin already had a fanbase from newgrounds/deviantart/sheezyart so when he started doing game grumps with someone else who already had a fanbase, it exploded.
now they've probably lost all the original people who were like "holy shit, jon tron and egoraptor together?????"
But they got so big that people are just bandwagoning and never looking back.
now they've probably lost all the original people who were like "holy shit, jon tron and egoraptor together?????"
I'm fairly sure they have.
the fact that on nearly every jon grump video the top comment is someone saying they like danny more than jon kinda cemented this for me.
>now they've probably lost all the original people who were like "holy shit, jon tron and egoraptor together?????"
I can confirm this, being that i was that guy, and literally every Grumps video has this same discussion in the comments.
Fuck man i remember being excited to see Grump shit pop up in my inbox. My love for Jon only grew, but likewise in time i saw the shitty side of Arin begin to surface.
I enjoyed the Sonic boom run out of curiosity, but the best play though in recent times would have to be Leisure suit Larry. Danny and Ross are actually likeable.
Can you blame her? It's been well over a year, I'd be tired of people asking about conspiracy theory questions as well. I don't like Suzy and I wish she'd never show up in Game Grumps again but I think it's perfectly fine for her to get annoyed over this.
>I like Ross because he actually has the balls to call Arin on his bullshit. Barry's just there for a paycheck, Suzy's a domineering whore and Dan is a spineless yes-man. Ross is the closest we'll get to having Jon back.
This. I sort of like Danny, but my god if he isn't a total fucking doormat.
Actually what happened is that Nicole pushed Jon to make GG into a side project and move with her to NY, and Arin wanted to monetize it. Stuff happened, and here we are today.
In some ways I can blame her. First off, if it bothers her that much she should stay out of it. It's not her place to get involved in that little obsession people have, she is neither Jon nor Arin. She doesn't have to answer for either of them.
More importantly though that is hardly an explanation. It's shown quite obviously that it is more than Jon simply wanting to work on his shit. There was no real explanation, the decision was out of nowhere, and no mention of these thoughts were made in their videos. There's no surprise that people see more to the situation than just Jon wanting to do shit.
At the end of the day though it's the fucking internet. When you get annoyed, go away. It's retarded that people get so pissy because people on the internet badger them with questions. If you don't like it it's very easy to open a new tab and not sperg out like a child.
>danny would use all of his racist jokes with reckless abandon and jon wouldn't give two shits about anything that he says.
>it could be pretty gud.
These posts made me notice something. In one of the recent episodes, might have been Sonic boom Arin goes on a typical mini-rant over how initally in their friendship Arin and Danny had to 'be careful' around each other, they weren't good enough friends to say all kinds of easy going offensive shit around each other, but supposedly they are now.
And yet Arin does the most censoring out of anyone. Trigger warnings, and telling Danny what he can and can't say. (Not that i want to hear him talk about how awesome weed is, but the fact Arin gets so butthurt at the mention of drugs, it's an unwritten rule their not allowed to speak of such things)
Not to mention he controls Barry, who can edit out anything he wishes.
Nobody fucking knows. Don't speak like you're an authority.
Personally I believe the theory I read about Jon disagreeing with Arin as Steam Train was starting up and Jon not taking signing the papers seriously and making jokes and then Arin getting into a big fight with him, hence Jon being in the original intro videos.
I stopped watching them a bit after Jon left. I have nothing against Dan, but it feels like he's just... too happy all the time. It always sounds like he's about to make a joke or laugh at whatever is happening, you never see him get angry or annoyed. It's like he's never actually invested into what's happening, he's just enjoying his time with Arin.
And don't get me wrong, it's a good thing in and of itself, but as a passive viewer I don't really feel the benefits.
I will say I enjoyed their SM3DW LP, because that's just Arin getting more and more pissed because Dan is fucking with him all the time.
>tfw Arin doesn't drraw or animate anymore
>tfw everyone unanimously agreed he made some pretty cool shit back then
>tfw he's the most unfunniest faggot you know nowadays
Focus on your goal, don't lose sight of your passion.
So Danny doesn't tell anymore of his boring weed stories anymore? Maybe I'll start watching again, that's part of the reason why I stopped. Does he still go on and on about his quirky jew dad?
Any ep where Dan has the wheel and just cheeses through a classic game is worth watching. Arin's usually too awestruck to be annoying. It's only a shame they're so few and far between.
Not all at. Jeff is Charismatic and has a lot of life experience.
Ross is not, and does not have life experience outside of a typical middle class Australian background and moving to America to be with some bitch who's eyes are too close together.
Jon suddenly wanted to move to NY for dat pussy game, that made his position as a grump pretty much impossible without constantly going back and forth between NY and LA.
Arin was unprepared for it and pissed that he put pussy over GG and they argued.
Jon leaves to NY earlier than he initially expected because of the fall out.
Arin panics to replace him and puts the new guy for Steam Train as the new grump.
Jon sends a video took in NY to Barry for the ODE video.
Contract with Maker/Polaris prevents them from disclosing the fall-out, hence why people like TB seemingly know the details but refuse to disclose them and not very long after the fact either.
>also when does arin get butthurt at the mention of drugs
Just in general, any mention of weed and Arin will immediately feel the need to assert himself as being 'above' it and remind us that he's never done any before, and will try to get away from the subject as quick as possible.
If you remember back to Sonic 06 that one early episode in the green forest level in which they mention what seems to be the smell of weed from outside their house.
Jon makes a joke that if it actually is Marijuana they need to pass that shit in or let them take a hit or whatever.
To which Arin simply mumbles something like 'N-nope..N-not me..I don't need it' And you can actually hear him angrily folding his arms and get super defensive, whilst still trying to play it cool and act dismissive to get away from the topic.
It's not like Jon or Danny are all about dat 420 BLAZE IT FAGGOT. why is Arin so afraid of weed?
>implying you know enough about ross to come to that conclusion
>literally the first frame
and i made it no further
>youtube comments complaining they aren't playing the game properly
>Sonic 06 (you may want to watch a 'best of' because it's 100+ parts)
>Kirby Super Star
>Zombies Ate My Neighbours
Honestly, go to the playlists tab, and scroll all the way down. They're all pretty great. The earlier the episode, the happier and funnier they are.
>youtube comments complaining about the complaining
>you will never make muney playing video games once a week with your friends
God, I'm so torn.
>suzy in videos is fine. She's not amazing and isn't very interesting, but she's not abrasive.
>I love danny. He's charming, has good stories (though I think he's understandably tapped out).
>Berry's humor is amazing. Both while editing and in videos. He's probably my favorite, though admittedly that may be because he's not in videos every single day.
>Arin is.. meh. He's annoying as hell and he still does that shit of ignoring game mechanics, blaming the game, and vocally talking about how he's probably ignoring important information while he makes a point to ignore it. and oh my fucking god, stop beatboxing, stop the lolsorandom bullshit and the dudebro humor, stop making it a point to talk over danny about how bad you smell. just. fucking. stop.
>I don't know why ross is there. I don't hate him as a person. he's alright on freinds zone. I think his humor revolves around being annoying, and that makes it seem like he's actuvely trying to make anything he's in unwatchable for litterally any reason someone would click off a video. He eats in the mic, he seems to purposefully shake the mouse and make the gameplay unwatchable if he's playing anything first person (he's a fucking animator. He can't have an arm that fucking shakey) and he shits on any game he tries to play blind, and jabbers all over the audio.
Wow, i didn't think that would be such a rant. enjoy that, /v/
>tfw no fetal alcohol syndrome gf
>people waste time doing this
Why would you even watch GG after knowing where all the 'offensive' jokes and comments are. Do people really comb through the blog to find the most trigger-free grumps episodes they can enjoy?
i guess somepeople watch it for the mlg level gameplay and Arin's insight into Pokemon or some shit
>Live in always sunny California
>Nice suburban house
>"Friends" to hang out with 24/7 (at least that's what it looks like)
>Spend the day doing whatever the fuck you want
>Make money for a living playing video games and selling merchandise
>Idiot children worship and praise you
>Married with a girlfriend even if she's fugly as hell
>Parents aren't ashamed of you and don't really mind what you're doing
>Seemingly happy and cheerful and enjoying life at least on camera
Do you think they're actually happy though /v/? Hell, if it was my life I would be, but honestly I don't know. There's still the scent of failure in the air given it's not a "real" job and Arin never even went to college because he's a high school drop out.
What will happen once the gravy train ends and game grumps is over?
These people thrive on finding issues in media to complain about. They get more enjoyment out of feeling like they're politically correct than they do actually watching the show. You can replace GG with anything as long as it satisfies that need.
I imagine it's like continuing to play a game you couldn't care less for because you're addicted to the grind.
So many time lately Arin is stupid/childish/gross to the point where Dan has to shut him down.
>I would love to do him up the butt, I'd take his big old floppy dick and just plow the poopy chute.
Next episode it's the exact same thing. Dan must feel like he's working with a fucking special needs kid.
Arin is definitely "That kid", the kid who always went too far to be accepted/to get laughs because he was super insecure. So you'd dare him to eat some dog shit or moon a cop and he'd always do it for the attention. Only when you look back do you realise how sad it was that he needed that validation.
You know what I think happened?
Jon got a bit too drunk one night, and ego being the closet faggot he is was "pretend" hitting on him and they went too far and they both felt violated by each other.
I have the biggest fucking crush on Dan and it's sorta motivated me to save up so one day I can fly from NZ to the states for a couple of years so I can go to Magfest and maybe see him
True, but no high school? That's pushing it man. It's hard to make it without a proper education without getting lucky in this day and age. Hell, even with a college degree people are still unemployed as fuck.
You know what? theres nothing wrong with going overboard. atleast it's not total verbal diarrhea.
Dan trying to tell him about the color coding thing in sonic boon was awful. I physically cringed, and Let's plays never do that to me. Arins little temper tantrum after he was proven wrong was hard to sit through.
I'd say he's pretty happy, he dropped out 'cause his mom was stupid and he just went "Well, guess I want to be a voice actor then"
And would you look at that, he's a voice actor now.
They say you should never meet your heroes, Anon.
>They're all under Non-Disclosure Agreements
God, why? I would never sign anything like that.
Fuck i would hate to think i couldn't speak my mind, or specifically call Arin out on his bullshit
>There's still the scent of failure in the air given it's not a "real" job
Is this real? I'm not American but I just can't believe people here care so much about college. Even if you go to college this shit doesn't guarantee you a job, what the fuck. The most people I know that earn some good money without working for Benjamin Netanyahu haven't went to college. I never saw a billionaire dropout, though
Wat? Spazkid animates frame-by-frame. So does HappyHarry and they make some of the smoothest animation out there. It just takes more time so it looks jerky if it's done quickly or poorly.
Ross was mocking the fact that arin doesn't animate anymore. Arin got butthurt because he thinks he's still a hot shit animator.
>Is this real?
Yes. people look down on you based on how you get your income. If you live in the south and don't make money by doing the most miserable job you can think of people treat you like scum on shit. People are starting to realize the value of college is inflated to shit (not employers, mostly people around 25~). I don't know if it's a thing for grumps but it's a thing. If i said i made 40k a year playing video games I'd be hated more than a hated politician.
It's in nearly any contract. You work for our company, you get paid by our company, you don't shit talk our company. Nobody cares if you have beef with a coworker, sort it out in private, and keep up appearances for the public.
Yeah they've been doing a terrible job 'keeping up appearances' since Jon initially left. They could have lead up to it and had a proper send-off and pretend it was nothing more than him leaving to do his own shit.
I also like how everyone has stopped with the fan grump content like Game Grumps Animated and the song remixes. They've had to get Ross or their Animator friends to make some in hopes to get it started up again. Shame theres nothing funny to work with in any of their recent episodes.
That's weird. There's a polish saying which goes something like 'no job is disgraceful' and I see that mindset a lot around here. Hell, if you find a sweet gig, like streaming vidya for money and it goes well, people seem to be happy for you. If you start your own business without education, people are impressed.
America's weird yo.
That's what I'm saying. Arin thinks he's still a hot shot animator, yet he hasn't made anything actually good in years. Ross basically pointed this out and arin pouted like a lil puss puss
>He thinks Grumps is flourishing
>inb4 200k subs
>popular =/= good
Fuck off you mongoloid.
>If you start your own business without education, people are impressed.
that applies here to.
> if you find a sweet gig, like streaming vidya for money and it goes well, people seem to be happy for you
Nope. It's just crabclaw. everyone wants you to do what they did. if you get a welding job or a job shoveling shit they'll be tickled pink and give you advice. if you persue animation, streaming vidya, or anything that's not a wurkin' man's jerb you get "oh, but when are you going ot get a real job?" and if it picks up and your making good dollars no one talks to you. It's comparable to dating a black person about 30 years ago.
Show me something funny in their recent episodes someones animated? Even the 2 they put on the channel was from stuff way way back when Danny first started (First Leisure Suit Larry & Super Mario 1)
I feel like the worst of the butthurt could have been avoided if they just put up an announcement video saying "Jon's leaving, we have x more days of content including him, and then it's new hosts. Btw here they are, Danny and Ross, enjoy!" Ideally they would have staggered the changeover by making the daily upload schedule 1 old GG, 1 new GG and 1 Steam Train.
GG? Never liked it. MAde me cringe a fair bit and wasn't really that funny to me.
Few friends were well into GG and begged me to watch it, and I did. I watched a fair bit, got a few laughs, but it was mostly awkward, unfunny shit with two faggots terrrible at video games.
Ego acted like a smug asshole and walked all over jon, jon acted like an insane buttsniffer who couldn't man up.
Then I found out jon was actually a thing before GG and not too bad, if you are into that reddit tier humor, but he had a respectable niche and interesting gimmicks. Then I rechecked what ego did.
He hardly did a singly fucking thing of note for years besides wear dino pj's on tv. Which was interesting as well, I guess, props to him for having the stones (or autism?) to pull that off. Then all of a sudden it was code pasty vampire woman thing out the ass and I'm like who the fuck is this?
And ever since she came I have had constant nightmares aboiut her entire being. I'm sure there's a mystery here, but by alucard's bald testicles I can't figure it out. Shit makes me well uncomfortable though. Like goddamn son where the fuck is van hellsing someone send that nigga a telegram we need to exorcize something out of ego's puckered asshole before his neck gets guillotined smh nigga what the fuck you doin lettin a succubus steal yo mana fool.
I dunno OP. Why don't you find it out yourself.
Not gonna lie, imagining this kind of social pressure is kinda scary.
Being a socially retarded weak-ass faggot, I can see myself falling for it and getting a job as a welder or something like that and be surrounded by loud and in my mind mean people and hate every second of my life.
I haven't watched them since Jon left. Ended up looking thru youtube one night and stumbled across Game Grumps play SH4. Arin sucked at it, all the while claiming it was his favourite SH. Decided to at least give it try because I like SH4 and I didn't mind Danny's commentary. Dropped like a pile of bricks after video 7 for what? Sonic Boom? That is the last time I ever even give them a chance.
>yfw DSP and Game Grumps cross over.
They're pretty much on the same level of vidya skill and maturity, so why not.
What I mean is fan content is still being produced at a frequent rate, funny or not. There's plenty for the recent christmas episodes, sonic boom, checkers, etc.
What you meant was the fact that the audience for that type of thing is nonexistent, which I agree with. The hype simply isn't there anymore, save for the people still making the stuff.
It's only bad if that kind of stuff bothers you. I tend to enjoy the company of two or three people so i don't mind alienating myself to bad.
You know what? That's fair. Watch when Barry plaid potatoeman seeks the troof and compare it to ross playing deer god or grumps playing yoshi's cookie. That's why people are frustrated.
Impossible. Arin doesn't know any non-white people and is too afraid of meeting a real black person to ever invite one to the show. He'd probably fantasize about getting raped on camera or something since he's a faggot too. Danny doesn't care though and is pretty chill though.
>Arin gradually becomes more and more arrogant because they're both straight men, where Jon was the lose cannon giving them a good dynamic. Arin tries to be the funny guy but fails
I thought I was the only one who noticed Arin reacting more and more retarded since Jon left. Jon knew how to be a dick to arin and make it funny as shit, episodes like Nickolodean Guts (the one where he doesn't tell arin how to get up on the platform and arin gets legit pissed) or goof troop and he constantly fucks up their progress.
They were like a Japanese manzai comedy duo, jon was the idiot and pervert that you grew to like (i hated him at first) and arin was the straight man.
Now Danny is in, but he's too straight man and trying to talk about his cool rock star life all the time, so it's 2 kinda dry guys playing games so you notice Arin having to be stupid more often.
Ross I think only acts stupid as a gimmick, he actually seems like a fun regular guy.
I barely follow these guys anymore and even I know you can do a 63 version of this.
See I can understand it if it's in their NSP gear, the really iconic stuff. But this is just her in a kimono. That's literally all it is.
Danny is only cool for those moments where he gets blown away by an awesome game that a normal gamer would just go 'oh'.
That and he's starting to stand up against Arin a little. Just a little, but it's there.
>Ross I think only acts stupid as a gimmick, he actually seems like a fun regular guy.
it might be an australian thing or it might just be a 'that guy' thing, but some people like to get a reaction out of their friends and laugh at that. you could spend time crafting a good joke and get one laugh out of them, or you could burp and screech in their ear and get a massive reaction and lots of attention. ross can be intelligent, witty and insightful and he knows a fair deal about the industries he's involved in. but he just has this fucked up sense of humour and preoccupied with amusing himself to the annoyance of everyone around him. picking kirby in smash is a prime example of him fucking around because people being mad at him is a lot funnier than them laughing with him.
I liked when Dan actually played through Shadow of the Colossus instead of Arin playing and Dan telling long winded stories that go fucking nowhere.
Arin got drunk back at a con way back, When he was still with Jon. Two Best Friends were there too, and they were having fun in that sort of lighthearted way people in the same field do. Anyway, they all go to a bar and start talking shit, Arin's mouthing off about how they're just a second rate Game Grumps and they'll never be as popular. Woolie stands up. Just walks over to him, and quietly says, "you are nothing but a animator with a shitty opinion on every game that has ever come out since you crawled out of your regretful mother's cave, and if you think you can talk shit about me again, I will beat you."
Arin pissed himself. Right there.
Pat's laughing because he dosn't get its a joke, Liam's checking his phone to avoid it and, Matt looks like he's about to faint because he's seen Woolie like this before.
It broke Arin, as a man and an internet personality. He blamed Jon for it too.
>that 'pick a grape off the floor' shit has Danny actually legit telling him to stop
>The severe and deep hatred for Sonic as a whole leads to Danny asking probing questions
It's really interesting.
You can be sure, that no matter if he still does weed or doesn't, he wont tell you on the internet.
And it's also the responsible thing to say and say again "don't do drugs kids, they are bad". That's how most people that do it but aren't 420BlazeIT stoner faggots handle it even in rl anyway.
I was thinking the other day, they stopped doing the whole "goddammit Ross" schtick. I wonder if he just flipped the fuck out and told them to go fuck themselves. I remember Dan was the worst for talking down to Ross on Steam Train.
I've had mates like that, who just play the devil's advocate, but it works with the group chemistry. Like, they say/do something that they know is going to get a rise, and everyone grabs the bait and there's that shared comradery as everyone just explodes into shit talking.
>"you are nothing but a animator with a shitty opinion on every game that has ever come out since you crawled out of your regretful mother's cave, and if you think you can talk shit about me again, I will beat you."
This is fucking fedora-tier dialog, and Woolie isn't anywhere near that articulate or confrontational to conjure this shit up on the spot. Take your fucking Woolie daydream fanfic and shove it.
Ross's humor works well when he has another idiot to take it to the next level. Somebody who gets it and clicks with him. I honestly think jon would be a riot with him, it would go until one of them explodes and they could play games where their antics actually work. But nobody else is as much as a devilish child at heart as ross on the current roll, so he just comes off as obnoxious because nobody plays off him and he just keeps trying to make them.
Barry killed me in that intro.
She is awful, but she's sorta cute.
>no body pictures
I think they've gotten to be better friends over the years. As Arin degrades and becomes a literal moron, Ross's fake tard must get more bearable because he can turn it off whenever he wants. Sierra games really gave the ST duo a chance to shine. During LSL6 they encountered a bug and lost their session of game footage, so they stopped, ate Christmas dinner together, and then started playing again. I know I wouldn't do that unless with a best friend.
Just so you know if you're ever down for a wild time all you have to do is look up game grumps fanfiction.
>Replying to a 6 hour old post
Also I am personally confused as to how people could actually think of them as friends.
They're just entertaining people who make videos about videogames.
every day we drift farther and farther from god's light
>the massive amounts of Danny/Reader and Danny/You fanfiction
>the massive amounts of Danny/obvious self-insert fanfiction
>that one person obsessed with writing about Barry helping their self-insert through their emotional problems
I'm personally a fan of the 'baby' fanfics.
>You are an egg, Mama Markyfloof is hatching you!
jesus fucking christ I can't stop laughing, why does this exist?
Something about how this was worded makes it seem like a DVR description for some shitty sitcom and it's making me lose my shit
That's kind of fucked up even by /v/ standards, especially since it's about actual people.
Tumblr has gone too far. Was it a guy or a girl writing the story?
Why even joke like this? I know you don't want to spoonfeed retards but why treat SJWgrumps better than a better channel? Does your retarded ass think that GG is better? I'm at a loss of words for what to type to you right now. It's not the shitposting it's you being a tasteless retard. I don't know if its double bait trying to piss off people with actual taste or what but you are one stupid moron. I wish it was possible to voteban retards like you off of this. Because it seems the only way to stop retards like you with no taste. How in the fuck can you possibly enjoy this nonsense? It's not a good channel. It's shitty. It fucking sucks. That's called having taste you stupid probably 3rd worlder retard. Eat shit and die you fucking tard. I have lost friends defending lesser channels and I'm not going to deal with some posting sperglord trying to attack a decent channel with a shitty one. Kill yourself you stupid moron.
This is worse than the time a thread was shitted up by lackadaisy poster that wouldn't stop despite being asking him to do so. You're probably the same retard. I mean shitty tastes tend to stick together so if you like game grumps wouldn't be surprised that you like lackadaisy.
God fuck this website.
Thanks anon, just what the doctor ordered.
Just in time to kick back and browse some dank meme B^).
>used to watch GameGrumps every other morning, made me feel good
>Arin was an insufferable asshole, but Jon was a pretty cool guy not afraid to speak his mind and seemingly ignorant of social stigmas that made his random thoughts glorious
>they actually talked about games to
>In 2013 I missed about a month, it was a pretty bad time for me
then my mother died
>So lobotomized with grief, I decide to see what Jon and Arin are doing, that would cheer me up a little..
>Load up GG. Huh, Jon's icon is different..?
Who the fuck is this dirty looking hobo and why is he talking about penises in every episode...
Game Grumps feels super soulless these days.
There are too many cast members, they don't really feel that natural when they're talking and Arin is fucking DSP-tier when it comes to playthroughs.
When Jon was there it felt much more like two friends just sitting around and playing video games.
>only just started watching grumps recently
>think danny is best grump
>never really get why so many people whine about jontron
What's a good Jontron era series to watch? I've seen some of Sonic 06, but that just feels super awkward and forced since that's sorta where Jon and Arin stopped being mates.
Dan > Jon
Jon era Arin >>>> Dan era Arin
It's like watching the Critic
I expect cinema jokes, but instead I get "muh girlfriend" and "lmao I'm a jew!!!1"
In all honesty, I really like Jon, just on his on show, where he hasn't got Arin crampin' his style.
>two people immediately say GoofTroop.
I'll give it a go then.
It's sort of cringey. Dan suggests maybe only Amy can jump on the platforms because they're pink, and Arin replies with "UH AND MAYBE ONLY SONIC CAN STAND ON THIS BECAUSE IT'S BLUE? HAH."
Then like 10 episodes later he finds out that Dan was actually right, because he never bothered to try and see if he was right initially.
>NO DAN, THIS IS FUCKING STUPID, BARRY WILL BACK ME UP
Jesus Christ. I get that Sonic Boom is a fucking awful game, but it's awful for children. The colour coding is super obvious.
Goof Troop. It's probably the best playthrough on the entire channel.
The reason people whine about Jon being gone is just that his dynamic with Arin was better. They played off of eachother very well and it led to a lot of funny moments, because Jon was the Wise Guy and Arin was the Straight Man. Even in this role Arin could get pretty obnoxious.
Then Jon left, and between Dan and Arin, Dan is by far the most calm and down-to-earth, which means Dan is now the Straight Man while Arin has to play the Wise Guy, a role he is absolutely terrible at. The jokes all became really forced and it's not as natural as it was with Jon, and it hurt the quality a lot.
TL:DR Jon leaving highlighted how weak Arin is as a comedian and Danny, as great as he is, can't fill the gap that's been left and make up for Arin's general shittery.
>Watching sonic 06 playthrough
>It's nearing the end
>Real life shit comes up, forced to stop watching for a few weeks
>visit their channel, it starts playing some new video
>"What the fuck happened to Jon's voice..?"
>Assume it's some guest i've never heard of and watch the 06 finale, only to find out the truth.
Unsubbed and never went back
I feel like GG has been better off since Jon left mostly because Jon seemed uncomfortable most times during GG playthroughs as though he wasn't quick or witty enough to come up with humor on the spot but his written humor in his individual videos are pretty solid and I think it looks better that they went separate ways.
Dan and Arin can rally off one another very easily and not only keep the flow going but make it entertaining at the same time. Anyone who watches GG for more than a few episodes should know to not expect these to be flawless playthroughs; it's just two guys playing video games and shooting shit for 10 minutes which is the kind of entertainment I enjoy. If I want to watch someone play video games seriously, then I might as well play them myself.
I admit Ross can be a tad annoying but he's far more enjoyable when he's playing Sierra games with Dan which is possibly their best shining moments. Barry is pretty cool to have around once in a while and was great during the Valentines special of Steam Train.
I'm not sure why everyone likes to give GG shit, much less Arin, because they're people like the rest of us but they happen to speak more freely on camera than most people would.
They dropped out, not because of being shits, but because they already had a multi-million dollar business running
Arin going insane at Jon in Nickelodeon Guts even though Jon was totally justified.
Arin making Dan gush about how attached he's gotten to Agro in SotC right before she falls to her death.
>See the huge Game Grumps with their million subs who came out of nowhere
>Slap on the opportunity
>We can't have Jontron, he is a loose cannon, he needs to clean up and be banned from doing the Jontron Show
>Arin convinces you he was the true viewerbait, and he can bring his jew friends in (everyone knows jews are funny)
>You sign them up for two years
>Viewers and subscribers drop to a quarter of the original
>His retarded gf makes up Tableflip
>Spend a shitload of money on that
>All the ad money is dwindling away
>You have to explain this shit to your bosses
>Actively goes out of his way to ignore in-game hints or advice due to superiority complex
>Complains about his own retarded ignorance
why they have not been any table flips lately, I thought it was the best GG spin-off show
I mean that show is only place where markplier actually works as a decent entertainment value, I thought he was funny guy before seeing his real videos
Why do you retards keep posting this shit?
>Random anon claims to be something he's not
This is like endlessly reposting a nintendo direct leak as fact. The fact Mick goes in and says he's 100% sure it isn't any other NG animator just proves that he knows it isnt on the basis that the shit said in the thread isn't true at all.
I hate how hepretends this game is as bad as 06
>uses Knuckles glitch to go out of bounds
>Why doesn't this game work? LOL Look at this game being shit
>obvious baby puzzle, that he already did before and there is a text saying what to do
>WOOOW how was i supposed to know that, shitty game
Has anyone here ever sent the Grumps anything? I saw Suzy mention how she'd like to come to NZ some day, and I think Dan has been here, so I was thinking of sending a game with maybe some kiwi trinkets or shit like that.
There's a whole tumblr devoted to telling people what to skip in game grumps to avoid being triggered.
Even the polaris guys think it's a joke, but they constantly get angry as people come in and accuse them of being satire. Apparently one of them contacted Ross' wife and demanded that in the upcoming Leisure Suit Larry scene where Larry gets tricked and then raped by a trap, they condemn the game for being mean, outdated and insensitive to trans people.
Then they did it as if it was actually any of those things to trans people and not just a joke at Larry's inexperience.
Considering the industry right now, there are three groups. The SJWs, the people who agree because it makes them look good to be on the same side as "feminism and equality," and misogynerds like us. If you're in any kind of public eye, it seems required to be the second to stay popular.
>implying it wasn't outdate and insensitive
inb4 everyone calls me a SJW or whatever, but that shit would not fly if the game were released today. At least they didn't censor it out, or cut the episode or something.
>arin comes up with a way to turn that skill into profit
Of course he does.
>contacted Ross' wife about the LSL scene
Why his wife? Why not the people actually playing game, or the people editing it together?
They were apparently dead tired. Which is more of an issue of their fucking work ethic than anything. You can't fuck off all day and then try to entertainment at 4 in the morning when you realize you didn't get anything done.
Are people really using this as an excuse? They dropped out of the best colleges because they already made it big.
Stop trying to justify dropping out of your shitty college
You can repeat it all you want, but you're going against the people that literally respond to every person that attacks them and their way of thinking. If they were joking they wouldn't be so good at defending themselves.
>he does not know of the master ruseman
Nah man I feel ya. It's not so much that they had a trans character, just Larry like, spitting and crawling around throwing up at the revelation, like being trans is flat-out disgusting. Not cool.
>tfw never watched pre danny grumps
>watched some stuff with jon
>still good and enjoyable
>arin was still annoying back then
>he's a super nice guy and his stories are pretty good
>arin still annoying now
>haven't seen suzy in many videos
could be worse
still prefer best friends even if pat is a man child
And the remaining 2% is batshit fucking crazy.
>those people who seriously believe tumblr is all radfems and over-the-top SJWs
It's like any other site. There's a minority of retards but ninety percent of it is just people talking about eggs or some shit.
Nobody goes that far, if they do they're usually kidding. This is why /pol/ trolling you fucks is bad, it's hilarious that they fool you with gullible shit like the militant black girl on twitter and ching chong woman that are "in-fighting sjw's" all the while the picture has fucking delete in it and is obvious baiting gullible faggots.
I'm not saying everything is that, because there's plenty of crazy sjw's, but there's so much that is so obvious it is a joke or pulling anons legs and yet /v/ eats it up as serious.
>Ross is possibly the most annoying youtube person/animator you can think of
>he seems to be well liked here
how can you bait me this hard
wait, a minute....
>some people think a person who posted on @gamegrumps is me. It's not. But yes, I suck lol. thanks to @thepowerplumber for spotting that
isn't that the guy who they started talking about on the gamegrump conspiracy subreddit?
