ITT: Times Game Grumps genuinely made you laugh
>Looks like you're the science guy now
That one was actually good
"OH GOD! WHY DID WE BUY A STUDIO? WE COMMENTATE ON VIDEO GAMES FOR CHRIST SAKE. I CANT KEEP UP WITH THE RENT... AND SUZY'S FACE IS GETTING MORE FUCKED UP BY THE DAY."
"I KNOW WHAT WE GOTTA DO... WE GOTTA ADVERTISE ON 4CHAN. ITS ALL ANONYMOUS, NO ONE WILL KNOW ITS US."
I actually believe this is habbening.
I'm sorry to tell you this, but according to the rules, e-celebs are allowed.
Well, I don't browse /v/ 24/7 but I've noticed a significant decrease in Grumps threads since Jon left. And when there are Grumps threads it's mostly Jon nostalgia.
Maybe they are viraling here but you'd have to be a pewdiepie fan to find most of their comedy good.
>and replace "is gay" with "is Fred Flintstone's friend"
Arin and Dan work beautifully together.
JonTron is just too loud as evidence in their Sonic 06 review:
JonTron and Arin should never have joined forcies. Their both too aggressive. They need appropriate power-bottoms to better compliment their personalities.
>Thinks Dan works better with Arin than Jon
That's why it was funny.
Jon was so unconfortable doing live stuff and had no idea what he was doing, Arin wanted to seem smart but Jon was mostly just screaming.
Their personalities didn't work and their struggle to keep it funny and interesting made great jokes.
Now Danny is completely different, he's passive towards Arin, so Arin can say whatever bullshit and there will be no confrontation.
Danny has also a lot of experience with improv stuff so he plays it safe and only mostly makes lame jokes.
Also THEY NEVER TALK ABOUT FUCKING VIDEO GAMES, Jon and Arin talked about the game and mechanics and analyzed it, even if sometimes they used stupid terms like ''Game Feel''.
tl;dr you're stupid
Been trying to find the episodes that Jon makes Seinfeld impressions, they're fucking perfect.
If someone knows what episode it was please spoonfeed.
I don't know what's worse. The fact that people are replying to this thread or that people find this stupid shit funny.
>Talking about random shit that isn't games casually is funny
>Arin & Danny being 100% chill is funny
Danny fucking sucks. He's unfunny & he tries so hard to be a "kewl nurd". Ninja Sex Party is really unfunny & he just doesn't do anything special on Game Grumps.
He might be a decent guy in RL, but he should stop trying to be an "internet comedian".
I don't know what's worse. The fact that people are shitposting on this thread or that people actually have the time to shitpost.
>WAAAHHHHHHHH people like what I don't like! /v/ is full of plebs!!!!!
Fuck off. Retards like you are the reason this board has gone to shit
Here's why Jon was good
He brought the excitement.
He made Arin excited by being excitable himself and you actually felt like it was two bros playing video games and having fun with them
Arin and Danny are just fucking snoozeville
This thread isn't breaking any rules, and you just bumped it.
Never, because I'm not a degenerate underage drooling retard who spends his days on youtube watching dumb as fuck let's plays
NIGGA WE GON NEED SUM
>Being dis mad over noting
The problem isn't Danny. Its fucking Arin. This attention he got from gg is making him a ducking clown
Danny is cool and so is Jon but Jon kept him in line and Danny is too chill.
>the new Jordan vs bird video
Just look at that. Arin is doing this fucking stupid grape joke for more than HALF the FUCKING video and Danny is trying to make him stop but he just doesn't because no matter what people will find it funny somehow.
He no longer needs to protect his online persona. He just fucking gave up
it is the only good thing they do.
all other games they plame are shit indies like goatmeme simulator epic fahnny.
ross's taste in games is awful
This nigga knows what's up.
I've watched that episode at least 10 times, and laughed my ass off every time.
Grant is great.
>Insecure to the point that you are pissed off about the kind of things people find funny
You are pathetic.
>Still using "kill yourself" as an argument
This sounds about right actually, guy is a dick for posting it on the internet though.
>watching Game Grumps
>finding that shit funny
>/a/ faggot thinks he has something to say about being autistic
So is this story legit?
I've been burned way too many times. (at least i think this was fake)
In all fairness, they've probably turned it down because if they do it too much their videos will get flagged and they will automatically lose views because of it. It's not like they're actually being SJWs.
Lots of people are trying to drama it up with stories like Arin slapping Jon's GF, or Suzy being a cunt (which is most likely true, but probably didn't have much to do with Jon leaving) but in all honesty, that story about Jon leaving because Arin wanted to change too much (hence Danny and Steam Train coming right into the picture as soon as Jon fucked off) and that Arin was an asshole about Jon being a fan, this is all probably true.
It would explain why Jon left suddenly without any prior knowledge, and also explains why Jon and GG never even mention each other
The Sonic campaign of their Sonic 06 playthrough.
As other anons pointed out, that shit is gold and when it ends the Shadow and Silver campaigns are only spotty with the humor, although still good.
I'm so fucking tired of you guys liking what I dislike. IT ANGERS ME SO BADLY I HAVE TO TYPE IT OUT IN THIS THREAD. Stop it. I am better than you in every single way! I'm an atheist, straight B student with atleast 2 girls who just happen to be my friends! I feel SO MUCH COOLER being a hipster than just ignoring your opnion no matter how shitty or appropriate it is! My mom said you are all a bunch of losers and that you should listen to me! She is also about to bring me some Oreos and Milk (shit is so cash!). I hope she doesn't see that I'm cursing on the internet. But whatever, I'm so freakin cool on the internet for HAVING A DIFFERENT OPINION!
Do people still not realize that Jon move to NY when he left grumps? He was gonna quit the show anyways, so why the fuck does it matter if there was an argument between him and Arin anyways?
I actually enjoyed the "How to NOT play Wind Waker" video more than any GameGrump videos.
Danny allows Arin to be as retarded as possible, to the point where it's almost endearing. JonTron is too correcting. Arin is also too correcting. They don't compliment each other's jokes either. A lot of the times, they actually talk over each other like the Lion King review because they're both trying to be funny (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31H1cYkeL48).
>Forgets/ignores that he even played Mario Party 8 with Jon
>Meets up with Grant Kirkhope despite having no connection to Grant like Jon does
>Brings people onto the show who know nothing about games, even less so than before
>Likes Metroid Other M
OT: I remember really laughing at the "beautiful little moment" sonic 06 episode.
One of the RunawayGuys replaces Dan, who do you pick?
It's definitely less funny. Jon and Arin actually had comedic chemistry, they would work off each other's random bullshit to make something funny.
Danny and Arin is just
>One of them makes a humorous observation
>"haha, yeah totally dude."
It objectively improved.
JonTron's presence is too commanding and Arin doesn't thrive as a wingman. (he sucks at expanding dialogue, his ego doesn't allow it)
He's substantially better when he's the main voice because it requires the least brain work and most reward.
My ranking of the quality of GameGrump episodes.
>#1 JonTron alone
>#2 Arin + Danny
>#3 Arin + JonTron
>#4 Arin alone
Arin throws constant setups for jokes or observational humor and Dan just goes
HAHA YEAH YOURE WEIRD DUDE THATS WEIRD
Jon went all out so it gave something for Arin to react to. But now that Arin has to be the funny guy who sets up every fucking joke it doesnt work out.
i like the
chilled out groovegame grumps has now. i know half the fun of jongrumps was the conflicts they would get into but i think it's somewhat more fun to just watch two dudes be buddies and play video games together.
also, danny is cute as fuck.
>HAHA YEAH YOURE WEIRD DUDE THATS WEIRD
Danny doesn't do that at all.
He actually follows the joke and tries to make it even funnier. For example, he took Arin's observation about the "cracked out grandma" in Wind Waker and built on it. The guy is completely egoless.
90% of his observational humor is sex, drugs and something he did at a party or some shit.
Arin and Jon could go on and on about a thing and not always talk about the same topic, and Dan is too afraid to even spout racist shit constantly like Jon did cause hes a pussy. Which suits him, he loves pussy and he is a pussy.
In many videos, Arin says a word like oriental or makes a joke about blacks or how a character is acting and Dan gets all defensive about it.
But no its ok when Dan makes the joke right?
Cause hes a silly jew who can make fun of other races?
>still using Windows OPsolete
You'd better have that in VMWare.
It sucked watching Shadow of the Colossus
>Christian Bale shouting at that guy
Every episode. It was barely funny the first time since it was so outdated.
Anybody else watch the Super Empire Strkes Back playthrough?
>That moment where Arin remembered the health sword bit and Danny had zero fucking clue what he was talking about
Game Grumps is dead, its just hobbling on like a beaten horse at this point.
>Jon and Arin's Super Star Wars playthrough
I miss it
I just came back from not watching GG for a while and decided to watch their Godzilla videos, and holy shit things have changed.
Also, Arin thinks Desuturoia is a girl, what the fuck?
Jon seems like a nice guy who didnt realize his idol would treat him like shit and just wanted to have fun playing games with a friend he had good chemistry with.
At least he still talks to Grant on twitter, but i never see him tweet Arin ever.
>People unable to accept different people find different things funny
You know, laughing at LPs is pretty much the opposite of autism.
Autism would be not getting why it's funny, because autists typically have a problem with understanding social norms and human interaction.
I don't know about you guys but I think that a Titanic game would be tons of fun
You walk around the titanic, have 2 hours to complete the game, events are scripted but the side missions not, and you can get multiple endings
>GoW steamy car sex minigame with Kate Winslet.
Did didn't do a lot of that, actually. It was mostly him encouraging Danny, while Danny proved that he's the better gamer out of the two.
Also him totally fucking with Danny's emotions and building up Agro right before his dramatic "death" scene.
Everything with Jon. I couldn't keep watching after Jon left, he brought a sense of reality to the show where now it just feels disingenuous and like I'm watching another pewdiepie.
Watched the whole thing, and I loved it, but most of what I remember of it is Danny playing like a boss, Danny singing, Arin getting Danny lost constantly, and Danny being really fucking confused by the geckos.
For fuck's sake, number one: it's not funny, number two it's Matsuba. Number three, they sold T-shirts with that, that disrespectful, Eric Chahi would be disappointed.
Everyone that linked Game Grumps with Dan is fucking retarded. Jon was the person who made that show watchable. Not only did he bring his own opinions to the show, but he also questioned Arin when he was acting retarded instead of enabling Arins ADHD ass like Dan the Yesman is. Also the humour was actually funny compared to the poop and dick jokes GG has devolved into
Example: http://youtu.be/W1ElAY59DLU 11:30
He probably loves games, but they're a thing you do when you're relaxing and when you want to.
Imagine if you were given a game you didn't feel like playing, and you had to play through the whole fucking thing, while being filmed, with some asshole screaming on the couch next to you.
He's biased as fucked about a lot of things, so you can get that feel from him, and is also a hypocrite who complains about being told what to do, and promptly says "BUT W-WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO HERE? I NEED A GUIDE!"
He has ADHD, so I understand him because I do, too. I don't think he medicates, though, which is probably best for filming because he'd be boring as fuck on robos.
But ADHD makes your personality extremely inconsistent. Your tastes shift constantly because the second you've done something, it's old news and you rarely want to do it again. Boredom is enhanced 100-fold.
In some ways ADHD is fucking great, mostly when you're out of the house doing shit, or when you're doing something you really love and it lets you hyperfocus like a machine. But when you're doing something you're not 100% into, oh god it's like torture.
Its already been said countless times but New Grumps just feels fucking forced. Like they are just doing it for the cash instead of playing video games for the fun of it
Look at Arin and Jon having fun and then watch a new Grumps, its like night and day
That's the feeling I got. He seems to have a sizable knowledge of them, but he never seems to really enjoy playing them. Maybe he's a bit burnt out on them, like a lot of people on /v/ are.
They're occasionally genuine-feeling. Mostly when Danny's playing. But you're right.
Ultimately all monetized "hobbies" become about the money, due to a peculiarity of human psychology.
Look up "intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation" to see what I mean. One always overtakes the other, and it's really unfortunate that we're built that way.
He seems to love playing vidya, but I so rarely see him actually enjoy what he's playing. Even when he was playing Banjo Kazooie, his supposedly favorite game of all time, he wasn't really into it.
I think he's more into broadway than games, honestly, and I think GG/JT was just an easy way for him to break into "showbiz" of some sort.
I think he's the one holding it up, actually.
If Arin went back to playing the straight man instead of the buffoon, it might be the other way around.
I like Arin when he's not screaming and acting like an ass, but wacky Arin is just not fun.
>Jon and Dan grumps
Oh god please let this happen
Maybe, but I think he's actually more into music and musicals/plays than he is games. He said at one of his con panels that post-Grumps he'll be transitioning away from video games and probably making an album soon.
When asked about the Album he said it would be "real music, not joke music about silly things like games".
My musical nigga.
Also, Jon + Danny wouid be the perfect storm of racist jokes. It would never end, and they're like the most sophisticated and funny jokes on the planet.
Well today we found out that the love for game grumps on /v/ is pretty much 50/50. Expected as much.
>People like Jon more despite the fact he was even more obnoxious and sucked at videogames
Game grumps is shit and they were both faggots.
Seriously, what kind of mouthbreathing mongoloid game overs on fucking Donkey Kong Country?
Y'wanna know why Jon left? Watch the very first DKC episode, it'll show you the entirety of their relationship front to back. Jon tries to share something he loves, Arin tears it to pieces in the most passive-aggressive manner possible because he's a contrarian douchebag. Lacking valid reasons, you can hear him strain and reach for an excuse to feel superior about not enjoying a piece of media (kinda like /v/). The LTTP series is even worse about this, at least at the beginning. Arin is such a shitty friend, you can really hear Jon trying his damnedest to make it an enjoyable experience for the two of them, but he just SHITS on it.
>that one with the self-sucking and lesbos
I'm really glad people animate these.
So he's an animator, voice actor, plays games, and he can sing? Sometimes I wish I was artistically talented. I used to draw a lot when I was younger, but I got discouraged when I saw some of the shit other people my age could do.
Who would be in charge if Arin ever decided to leave Game Grumps?
I prefer Danny to Jon, and this even bummed me out.
In a perfect world, Jon would have stayed with GG when Danny+Ross joined, and it would have been a big happy family like it was intended to be.
The only time I laughed was when John was around.
Okay, oldfag question. who started Let's Plays? I don't necessarily mean on youtube, just the idea in general.
Was it Tim Rogers back in the insert_credit days with his stay up all night and play final fantasy videos?
Fairly recent one.
Dan started off okay, but now it's a chore to watch them, I can't stand Dan's fake laugh anymore, and I don't. Only occasionally watch Steam Train during Sierra playthroughs. I'm actually surprised how not retarded Ross can be. Game Grumps died few weeks after Dan told his every Dad story.
Well, to be fair, Game Grumps isn't fucking Interplay, that wanted to replace the whole game's soundtrack with new stuff by some guy and re-do the whole game, at least when the game was being ported for the other systems, 3DO Another World was everything the original game wasn't trying to be
Yeah, he said he spent a few weeks researching Pokemon on the internet while sitting in some diner or something.
Gotta do what you gotta do to make a buck, anon. They're not here for your enjoyment, there here for being able to pay their rent.
what a bunch of poopy ass-dicks.
> mfw dan is my favorite part of grumps now
> mfw arin gets more insufferable by the day
I wonder how long till Dan gets sick of his shit
>tfw you enjoyed Jon + Arin
>tfw you enjoy Danny + Arin
>tfw you enjoy Danny + Ross
>tfw you enjoy Ross + Arin
>tfw you enjoy Tableflip (in spite of Suzie)
>tfw you don't deprive yourself of fun things just because they're popular
I think Jon just wanted to move on and focus on his own work, and Arin didn't want him to go, and there was an argument were some harsh things were said on both sides, and their contracts had to be arbitrated to the point that they're not legally allowed to speak about it.
Pretty common when two friends go into business together, honestly. The friendship rarely lasts.
Suzy is the worst thing to happen to game grumps, and especially the worst thing to Arin. I guess she's all Arin could manage, or maybe he stopped trying once he has a fish on his hook.
I mean that's fine and all.
But I don't understand people who have such small senses of humor. The proof of a refined sense of humor is finding as much as possible funny.
The less things you find funny, the worse your sense of humor.
For example, if I say the word "cheese" and you don't at least smirk? Your sense of humor is damaged.
>tfw you enjoy Tableflip (in spite of Suzie)
Suzie pisses me off with her forced mediating
>Guys riffing on each other, making jokes
>Suzie getting clearly annoyed
>Guys are you done?...It's your turn Ross
What a cunt.
>I guess she's all Arin could manage
Are you fucking retarded.
Jon's bitch was yoko. What did suzie do other than appearing on Steam Rolled? is this about her and the way Jon's girlfriend doesn't seem to like her?
I don't want to defend suzy but in those types of situations when you have what may seem like strict rules it just keeps the videos or games moving along and stops them from being 40 minutes circle-jerks that stopped being funny
I get the vibe that she gets upset because she thinks it's her show and doesn't want them taking it over, even though they're clearly way funnier than her.
It's also odd how Barry rarely does anything on there ever.
Hold on to? Ehh.
He's an okay looking guy (arguably quite attractive when he's in shape), and he can be a lot of fun, but managing a person with ADHD is a full-time job most people can't handle.
That hit me with way more nostalgia than I expected.
I fucking miss Jon and when the community was just starting, man. I still remember that exact moment where the announcement video went up and two of my favorite YouTube celebs were gonna do fucking let's plays together. It was so magical. I want it back.
Have you ever lost your mind laughing with a bro playing video games anon?
No you havnt because you don't have any friends and you're the type of person to post in these threads about how unfunny they are
That's what I meant, I could never see him holding onto anyone worth keeping because you can tell he has a really shitty personality. You can really see it in one of the panels he did with Jon. He has this quality of being stuck up.
Probably why he's stayed with Suzie, because oh how similar they are.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees that. Every once in a while on the episodes where the rest of the Grump cast is on, she'd get this quick flashes in her eyes.
>These guys are ruining MY show!
GameGrumps is owned by Disney. Having a studio is a drop in the bucket... They each make more on each video than your average brain surgeon makes a week. If you think they're starved for cash you are a thick idiot...
>surprising lack of failtron in the thread
I feel like he's mellowed out recently, though. He seems a lot more humble, and a lot less full of himself.
Maybe it just took him this long to realize what a dick he's been in the past. Maybe he's still not fully there yet.
The day will come when Arin and Jon reconcile, though it will likely be behind the scenes and there will be no outward sign of it.
They'll never work together or collaborate again, though. That ship sailed a long time ago...
That entire episode had me laugh non-stop, but then Arin said
"Oppa trampoline style"
Then my laughter got slaughtered.
I miss when Jon was there to counteract with Arin's horrible fucking skill in vidya and thoroughly kicked his ass in every VS video while being a funny mother fucker at the same time.
If only he was still here to siphon the jewery.
>joke is too mainstream to be funny so i stopped myself from laughing because I'm above it
Get over yourself, anon. Embrace the silly.
Suzy should just stick with HER show. Although, if she wanted to take over GG for the price of leaving Table Flip, I'd be 100% OK with this. Let Danny, Berry, and Stamper play board games, and let Suzy and Arin fuck each other with their shitty let's play.
So when you're joking around with your friends, and everyone's laughing, and one guy says something that's unfunny, do you just stop laughing and get all bitchy?
Because a sandy vagina is no-one's friend, anon.
I RATHER GET FISTED BY A ORANGATANG WHILE GETTING CASTRATED WHILE WATCHING TRAP PORN
Get bitchy? More like just stop laughing because that ruins the joke.
Anon, in a social situation you keep laughing because otherwise you're ruining the mood. You go with it, even if your friends say something unfunny, and pretend that it was funny.
You sound like a really unfriendly person, honestly.
>comparing treatment of people you have relationships with in real life social situations to watching a video on Youtube
Are you seriously trying to argue that if you're watching a Youtube video that isn't funn you should still fake laughter so as not to upset the youtubers you are watching? Jesus Christ GG fans confirmed for having no fucking friends.
so it turns out arin was the REAL jew after all
If I'm in a group of friends and some guy says something funny and everyone else stops laughing and says they ruined the joke, yes I stop.
If I'm in a one on one conversation and a friend says something unfunny I pretend to keep laughing.
But you're literally the only one arguing you should laugh at youtube videos you don't find funny. Now you're making fun of that position as if you didn't argue for it.
You don't even know what you're arguing for, do you.
I'll tell you what though, I'm laughing at the thought of you trying to seek the approval of youtubers you will never meet as if they are in the room with you. So good job, you're better than GG.
Disney would never let one of its biggest money makers fail. If they want a recording studio, they got it. If they want a new 4K AMOLED TV with a lifetime subscription to HBO, they got it. If they want the Pope to give Ross a fucking lap dance, they fucking got it. They make PewDiePie, Bieber, and the fucking Kardashians look like retail workers.
I'm just a follower when I'm in a group of people. Which is why I do terrible when it's just me and some other guy.
>been watching Ego since 2007
>been watching GG since the beginning in 2012
>watched every day, loved it
>Jon left and was replaced by Danny, felt bad
>grew to like Danny
>met a grill last August and we bonded over GG with Danny (dating ever since)
>tfw finally getting tired of Arin
I seriously wish they would make Grumps weekly. Then they could focus on doing the things that made us like them in the first place. But GG just puts money in their pockets now and I feel like they're really losing traction
>bonded over GG
So she's mentally handicaped or a landwhale?
Trigger warnings. That's when I stopped watching and actually started hating Arin and those fucking jews.
>tfw there will never be gamegrumps with jon and chrischan
>>met a grill last August and we bonded over GG with Danny (dating ever since)
There's a reason they've pretty much redacted all existence of that fat fuck.
>pissed off arin when he wanted to play more variety of games
>pissed off barry when he wanted to do longer episodes with slower footage edited out
>pissed off suzy when he didn't think she should get a share of the youtube money (despite her having her own channel but that's besides the point)
>pissed off everyone else when he objected to expanding the channel
>no more failtron
>channel more popular than it's ever been
More popular, but still shit. With Jon, the shit was barable, kind of like smelling your own loaf after dropping it in the toilet. Now the shit smells like an outhouse that's been left for the whole summer.
Hmm? How many subs did the show have when failtron left? ~900,000. Care to guess how many it has right now? 1,646,108. Let that sink into your fat head for a minute.
Want proof for the other stuff? Look at the writing on the wall and use your brain... failtron was holding the channel back. Fuck him.
>implying the channel wouldn't have grown anyway due to time
You actually can't be that dumb right?
>Look at the writing on the wall and use your brain
hahaha okay anon whatever you say
They actually had over a million. Then they dropped to 900k because of unsubs. They have more subs than they used to, of course, but the rate of subs is way, way down from what it used to be.
>the channel wouldn't have grown anyway due to time
Subscriber growth had slowed to a crawl. A near stop almost. Everyone was tired of ECH ECH ECH and DINGLY DOODLE BOPPER. How sad is it that pretty much all of failtron's worthwhile experience came from Game Grumps? He was going to hit his plateau and he did... Everyone in the channel right now has been in the scene and lived out their own exciting lives; bringing more to the table than failtron ever could or ever did.
And for fun, how about you take a look at his channel? How about that sub count and all those views? lol...
I'm pretty sure you're retarded, but anyway when you provide me with the proper graph showing the view/sub count slowed way down while jontron was on the show I will be able to believe you anon.
But making random claims hoping retards will blindly agree with you is fucking dumb
