Game Grumps? What the fuck is that?

In a nutshell: two guys playing video games together and doing funny commentary on it.
It is one of the most popular channels on Youtube, with about 3 million subscribers at the moment.

They reliably upload 3 videos every day, each one being about 10 minutes long - two Game Grumps videos, one Steam Train video.

Wait, there are two channels now? THIS IS GETTING TOO COMPLICATED, I'M OUT

No wait!

The "main" Game Grumps channel is, well, Game Grumps.

AII4u4V.png

Game Grumps is Arin and Danny playing console games together - expect mostly old Nintendo games here.
They usually have a couple ongoing longer series, where they (try to) complete games, interspersed with "one-offs" which are mostly terrible games they give up on after 10 minutes.

45n056s.png

As the name suggests, Game Grumps VS is them playing games against each other.

V1xYZwV.jpg

Steam Train came to be when Danny and Ross joined Game Grumps. It's basically the same concept as Game Grumps, only it's the Grumps playing PC games. It used to be just Danny and Ross, but nowadays it can feature pretty much any combination of Grumps

ph96iei.png?1

Grumpcade is any combination of Grumps (except Arin and Dan) playing console games. Other Youtube folks will occasionally appear here.

1VsXlzI.jpg

Grump Out is their "side" channel where the Grumps basically do whatever the fuck they want.

It's weird.


But wait, there's more!

zU7Rh6Z.jpg

Table Flip was a show hosted by Barry and Suzy where they play board games with other Youtubers. Sometimes the other Grumps join them, sometimes it's people like ProJared or Markiplier. The show is now officially cancelled since the Grumps left Maker Studios, but the episodes can still be watched on their channel.

d9nzg9r.jpg

Star Bomb is a band comprised of Arin, Danny and Brian (of Ninja Sex Party). They've got two albums out right now, with more on the way. It's a comedy / parody band making songs about video games and dicks.

It's great.

Watch their animated music videos here!


Wait..Arin? Barry? Suzy? Who the hell are those people anyway?

The following wonderful people contribute to Game Grumps in one way or another:

VjbQQNi.png

Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson is the co-founder and head honcho of Game Grumps who appears in the vast majority of videos. You might know him from his "Awesome" series, his "Sequelitis" videos or even his appearance on terrible reality TV show "The Tester".
Playboy, billionaire, philanthropist, Arin is living the good life of being a Youtube all-star while also being amazing at video games. He especially enjoys N64 games and the freedom they give the player at exploring the world and controlling the camera. Wow, what a guy!

q0KyB1o.png?1

Leigh Daniel "Danny Y. Sexbang"(the Y stands for "you", so that you'll be fully enveloped by him) Avidan is the Not-So-Grump to Arin's Grump. You might know him from his awesome band Ninja Sex Party.
Compared to the other Grumps he's not all that familiar with video games since he basically stopped playing them after the SNES era until he joined Game Grumps (save for a brief stint ten years ago where all he did each day was play Morrowind and smoke weed), however he makes up for it by having led an insanely interesting life and just being inherently likeable. Did you know that he dug out the Qumran Caves when he was four years old? It's true, I read it on Wikipedia!

OdceuxH.png

Ross "RubberRoss" O'Donovan is some dude who fancies himself an "Australian" or whatever. He likes chugging milk, being ripped, annoying the other Grumps and reminding you that today's a lovely day for cricket.
All together now: "God damn it, Ross."

ZODPzm4.jpg?1

Barry "Barry" Kramer - Grump during the day, unicorn wizard at night, he was formerly the editor of Game Grumps before Kevin was hired (although he still edits an episode from time to time), he now regularly appears in Grumpcade and Steam Train episodes.
He also hosts Table Flip together with..

c64HbQD.jpg

..Suzy "Mortem3r" "Goose" Berhow, who is Arin's wife. She has been on a couple Steam Rolled and Grumpcade episodes but mostly stays off-camera. She has her own channel here which is centered on make-up and fashion. She now also has her own gaming channel, Kitty Kat Gaming.

WCaeQEM.jpg

Hired to help out Barry with his editing duties, Kevin Abernathy is the newest addition to the Grump family after Dan bent him over like a table and sent him to Frisco town. Or something along those lines.
To this day, he still hasn't gone home.

io53cns.jpg?1

Brian "Ninja Brian" Wecht officially joined the Grumps last year. The musical genius and deadly ninja assassin behind Ninja Sex Party and Starbomb left behind a teaching position at a prestigious London university to make dick jokes full time. He's living the dream.
Also, did you know he has a Ph.D. (and you don't) ?

06zjpuh.jpg?1

Jon "Jontron" Jafari is the former Not-So-Grump and founding member of Game Grumps. He left the channel in June 2013 to focus more on other projects and to move in with his girlfriend in New York. You should check out his channel JonTronShow, it's great!

So why should I watch this?

Because it's fun! It's important to note that Game Grumps is not a channel you should visit if you want to watch speedruns or walkthroughs of video games. These guys are comedians / entertainers first and gamers second. Being consistently funny for 10 minutes with no awkward silences and playing competently at the same time is tough. They're trying their best but it can be pretty frustrating occasionally. Usually, however, it's worth it to watch them aimlessly stumble around. Just give it a shot and watch a couple of episodes to see if you like it.

Sonic 06: This way lies madness.
Drakkhen: The epic journey of Willard, Bill, Langley and Big Bill to the 7-Eleven.
Dennis the Menace: GET OUTTA HERE
Mega Man 2: Includes many delightful Danny stories
Goof Troop
Gundam Battle Assault 2: Oh hey, Big Zam.
Mickey Mousecapade: Jeez, game designers, get it together!
Wheel of Fortune: Lose a turn
Night Trap: Watch out behind you!
Mario Party 8: Watch it. Do it. Don't chew it.
Shadow the Hedgehog: KILL THE PRESIDENT
Dead or Alive Xtreme 2: I GOTTA MAKE A FRIEND
Ninja Gaiden: Arin is good at video games???
Kirby's Dream Course: MLG golf action
Pokemon Fire Red: The longest series ever!
Ice Hockey: The most dramatic Game Grumps VS
Sonic Boom: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Knuckles with his gross echidna-penis
Trauma Center: Second Opinion: You got a letter. It's a C..for CRANBERRIES
Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril: Arin melts down
Super Mario 3D World: Arin enjoys a 3D Mario game???
Dan Bradman: Cricket: Lovely day for cricket
Amazing World: Microtransactions hoooo!
Shovel Knight Co-op: INFINIDAGGER!
Dead Rising: It's whappin' time!

    Is that thing at the top still enough of a hot topic that it's banwothy? Huh.

    Anyway, the music appreciation episode of Mario Maker is my favorite episode in a while. It plays out like a well-crafted joke with a setup and big payoff.

    Ok that music level is definitely a tad off. Likely why no one can beat it. You gotta go in time with the music, but not push exactly at the same time.

    Halfway through it so far though. I'm gonna do it, but I can't record the completion :(

    Kangaroos have almost no body fat so they are super ripped when they flex.
