This is a series starring everyone's favorite game critiquer and sellout artist Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson with his best-est buddy that he doesn't have sex with
for nooooow
Danny "Sexbang" Avidan. They play video games to give you the yucks and chuckles, and everyone is happy until they drop a game that people enjoy like Earthbound or something! Occasionally some other jerk named Ross O'Donovan will show up too I guess.

also they had a guy named "john" or something on their show, idon'tfuckinknow



Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson - Arnold is an animator hailing from the primordial internet ooze known as Newgrounds, and originally became internet famous for his animated shorts based on video game humor, such as the Awesome series. He is now a prolific actor, lending his voice to cartoons such as Cartoon Network's Mighty Magiswords and Adult Swim's Rick and Morty, and most recently starring in Dan Harmon's live-action YouTube Red series Good Game. He is also a part of the band Starbomb alongside Dan and Brian of Ninja Sex Party.


Leigh Daniel "Danny Sexbang" Avidan - Danny is a singer/musician and member of the comedy duo/kickass band Ninja Sex Party. Together with bandmate Ninja Brian, Donny is known for such hits as Road Trip, Attitude City, 6969, No Reason Boner, and Dinosaur Laser Fight. They also do really great cover songs and have a second cover album coming soon tomorrow. But uh, Game Grumps. Denny joined the show in 2013 due to the unexpected departure of the previous host, but he's been a beloved member ever since. He also co-starred with Arin in Good Game.




Currently they're in the middle of playing: Mario Odyssey? Holy shit!


If you're new to the Game Grumps and wanna watch some of their earlier stuff, here's a list of series that I personally recommend (in no order), with favorites bolded:

Recommended Series/Episodes to Watch
- Super Mario Maker (simply too huge of a playlist to link)
- Mickey Mousecapade
- Shadow of the Colossus

- King's Quest V
- LoZ: Breath of the Wild
- LoZ: Wind Waker
- Battle Kid
- LoZ 2: Adventure of Link
- Bloodborne
- Grump's Dream Course
- Mega Man X (ARIN SOLO PLAYTHROUGH)
(Also the playlist doesn't include all the episodes he did but it's still really really good)
- Miitopia

This is by no means a definitive list, just my own recommendations. Other series that are highly recommended by fans include:

- Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and Punch Out!! for Wii
- Heart of Darkness
- Katamari Damacy, We Love Katamari, and Katamari Forever
- Kirby's Epic Yarn
- Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
- Super Mario 64 (and the Green Demon Challenge)
- Super Mario Sunshine
- Super Mario 3D World
- Super Mario Galaxy

EDIT: VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO TheOGB for the pretty graphics, additional Grump info, and the additional playlists!

Ayyyyy! I was just wondering if I was going to have to do the Grumps thread myself! Thanks, Professor!

I really loved the recent Chuck E Cheese series. The whole, "I am FriendDog" bit seriously cracks me up.

Bump now that I'm awake (but at work). I'll try and keep the op updated with the main series they're playing. One more series that I recommend, especially for Halloween, is REmake. Arin does a good job going through it.

Oh hell yes. I was literally just about to ask Twitter if there was any interest in a Grump OT.

Edit: Can I make a suggestion? Add Super Mario 3D World to the list of great series. It’s fucking delightful to watch Danny screw Arin over whenever he can. I wish Odyssey was a two player because we really need another series like that.

Lmao, guess I was too slow making my OP (probably because I linked everything I could think of :V). Well, I've got a bunch of banners you can use if you want, Beef.

Wheel of Fortune deserves a mention too. Seriously the hardest I remember ever laughing at a Grumps episode (though Obama preeing on Grump's Dream Course is up there)
Haven't been keeping up much with them lately, unfortunately. Partly because they've been playing some games I don't want to be spoiled, and partly because I've been losing interest. Are any of their recent series worth checking out? (besides Mario 3)

I mean those are just my personal preferences, but I'll add it when I leave work :V

I'd be happy to use them! Again, once I'm off of work.

Leisure Suit Larry, Contra 3, and Sonic Unleashed have all been fantastic and are all recent

How is TEW2 playthrough? I plan to play that myself eventually so I'm not watching it yet, but we all know how hilariously scared Danny is of spooky things so I bet it's pretty great.

Their recent Tungulus vid was pretty good. I also enjoyed the killer robot jokes in the Chuck E Cheese ones.

I just watch a video here and there, especially when I feeling down, so I'm glad for some of those recommended links! RIBBIT KING <3

Can't sleep. Thinking about the Tungulus.

One of the top comments cracked me up

Shame I can't watch their TEW2 playthrough, as I haven't played it yet. Same goes for Cuphead.

Been enjoying Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, though.

thank god was looking for this and afraid we didn't make the switch. Here's to many more years of grumpin'

Fun fact: I am friends with Ethan Monte, who sent the grumps Wheel of Fortune, responsible for that amazing episode. I had actually sent them some games in that same package that they never played.

I haven’t kept up with the Grumps in a couple of years! Started feeling a little more forced and less natural, which I can understand when you have to be in go-mode every time you record. That said, that means I probably have 2 years of gold to catch up on!! Can’t wait to comb through the OT and find some new favorites.

(Btw, I don’t mean “forced” to be an insult. Tons of people love their stuff and just because the feeling of “effort” strikes me, it is likely not the case for most everyone. It coincided with a lot of other departures for me as I got the same vibe from Rooster Teeth, whom I also still love but don’t kee up with. Fingers crossed that this is my return to the community!)

Can you give me a summary? Twitch is a POS and the video won't play properly on my computer.
Chris doesn't have time for it anymore and Ross didn't have anyone in mind to replace him (and is still busy with his own projects), so he just decided to end it.
