is one of the most popular Let's Play channels on Youtube - it currently has about 4.5 million subscribers and has been consistently active for over five years. They usually upload two 10-15 minute videos every day.
But who are these Game Grumps, anyway?
Arin "Arin" Hanson
, also known as Egoraptor, is one of the founding members of Game Grumps. Before creating the channel, he was mostly known as an animator and a voice actor
, which he still does occasionally. You might have seen his Sequelitis videos or his Awesome series.
Now that he's a professional Let's Player, he gets to dazzle an audience of millions with his amazing video game skills every day.
Leigh Daniel "Danny Sexbang" Avidan
is the other main member of Game Grumps. He joined the channel back in 2013. He's in a comedy rock band called Ninja Sex Party
alongside Ninja Brian. Not much of a gamer himself on account of him being 74 years old and having huge gross thumbs, he's only good at about five games, all of which are old NES games.
Ross "RubberNinja" O'Donovan
joined Game Grumps alongside Dan back in 2013. Together, they hosted a show called Steam Train where they played PC games together. Steam Train has since been discontinued and Ross has mostly stepped back from being active on the channel. He is still in the occasional video, but these days he want back to his initial passion of being an animator
. He's currently working on an his own animated show called Gameoverse
Brian "Ninja Brian" Wecht
is reponsible for the various Game Grumps social media channels, on top of being in the occasional video. For the most part, however, he's the other half of Ninja Sex Party, the band he created with Dan. He left behind a teaching position at a prestigious London university to make dick jokes full time.
Did you know that he has a Ph.D.?
Suzy "Mortem3r" Berhow
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 also has her own gaming channel, Kitty Kat Gaming
Matt Watson & Ryan Magee
are the current editors of Game Grumps. On top of that, they also have their own Let's Play channel, Supermega
The Grumps of Yesteryear
joined Game Grumps in 2012 and was the channel's editor for many years, on top of appearing in quite a few videos himself. He also hosted the boardgame show Table Flip
with Suzy for a while. In January 2018, he left Game Grumps in order to focus more on his own projects. He has a Youtube channel here
, where he will occasionally post videos such as his game analysis series How About This Game?. Mostly though, he runs a Twitch stream here
. He streams three or four times a week, playing a variety of games.
Jon "JonTron" Jafari
was the founding member of Game Grumps with Arin back in 2012. He left the channel in 2013 in order to focus more on his own Youtube channel, JonTronShow
was the Game Grumps editor from 2014 to 2016. He left in order to pursue a career in editing movie trailers.
Game Grumps is a lot more than a Let's Play channel - they've done a ton of other projects in the past. There are way too many to list here, but a few highlights are:
is a band comprised of Arin, Danny and Brian. 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.

is an original Youtube Red show starring Arin and Dan. It's about an underdog eSports team trying to make it big. You can watch the first episode for free here
was an unfortunately short-lived series hosted by Ross and Chris "OneyNG" O'Neill
. In each episode, Ross, Chris and their guests draw characters from a certain franchise in (mostly) completely absurd ways. It's tons of fun. Watch it here
Game Grumps Animted
Another fun part of Game Grumps is Game Grumps Animated - as the name implies, these are funny or memorable scenes that have been animated by fans.
