    You make a lot of really accurate points. GG c fans are toxic anyways.

      10:55. Don't rewrite history, he parroted white supremacist bullshit and did a "I'm sorry you were offended". I'm not defending Arin blasting the N bomb, but don't misrepresent Jon here.

        It’s called 10 minute power hour because it takes an hour to film and it makes a ten minute video.

          Well I used to like them.............
          But I agree they lost their touch
          At least they have some funny moments but barely



          It’s my opinion

                With recent events, this video is more pertinent than ever

                  A good comparison would be between Game Grumps and the Yogscast. Arin hanson sees Game Grumps with business in mind whereas Lewis Brindley has the fans best interest first. A good example is where Mark talked about when GG held shows where you pay to watch them play games where I'm sure they cut corners from the videos I've seen of just a stage and chairs like they're at some panel at a convention. But in the case of the Yogscast they held a whole convention and had two options, either cancel it because sponsors had pulled out and not lose money or do it for the fans and lose over 10k. Guess which one they picked. I guess what I'm trying to say is both have similar content but when it comes down to it Arin would rather spew out content instead of trying to fix what the fans had subscribed for. The yogscast however stick to what the fans know and like and still manage to be successful and have a whole tight network where the fans are the number one priority. An unfortunate example of this is when two of the yogscast employees stepped down after some allegations due to not wanting to set a bad example for the brand and also for letting their fans down. But when Arin does something upsetting he beats around the bush with vague apologies that sound more like he's saying it just to appease the few brainwashed GG fans. Dont get me wrong I like both channels however over the years The Yogscast grew over the years and expanded with their fans and pump out content that appeals to the fans but GG seems to be happy to care less about their old time fans and just try to keep their brand relevant for as long as they can. Hopefully Arin Hanson realizes this and begins to listen to the fans.

                    Why did LS Mark unlist the video? Is it because of the controversy he sparked with it?

                      DragonBoy RW which is a fantastic decision. having a youtube channel dedicated solely to shitting on other channels is beyond corny, this video still screams “bitter” imo

                      Go to his Twitter he explained it, but basically he privated a lot of videos because he didn’t want to be associated with videos like these. Basically videos that he was ranting, for lack of a better word, on other youtubers. His cartoon and movie reviews are still up because that’s what he wants to be known for.

                      Seriously, I can’t stand Arin anymore. Not sure if he was always so pretentious, but I guess we know how he is now.
                      Super fucking pretentious.

                      I’m sorry the truth has upset you.

                          Acting like an opinion is objective in comedy is just stupid. You can not like Game Grumps, but objectively analyzing comedy doesnt work. No matter how stupid you find it, (clearly) millions of others will find it funny.

                            Ok, quick question. Have you actually watched Game Grumps? Or did you just cycle though the comments on their most dislikes videos?

                              Dan ruined game grumps for me personally. He tried to hard in the beginning wich i get, he had to fill shoes that couldnt be filled. But he tried to fill the shoes with over exaggerated laughter and yelling and of course his lame ass attempts at singing like john used to. And would just gush and swoon over suzie and would go to her room alot during the videos and tell arin how much him and suzie hangout without arin and he also constantly lies about his stories and even admitted to it in one episode when arin pointed it out (im not saying that all his stories are lies but since he admitted it im gonna say up to that point maybe 50% of them are lies.)
                              Also with john gone i could see how arin is just meh. He's just a monotoned idiot that does a voice sometimes.
                              Over the years their dynamic kinda made sense like a abused girlfriend constantly trying to please her boyfriend by not stirring the pot and constantly ask for praise for mundane things.
                              Dan calmed down, his hyena like manic laughter turned into a chuckle. his stories got less exaggerated and more down to earth (wich again he may have made some of them up making his whole persona a fucking joke.) His comments on the games and whatever lame subject they bring up for dead air filler is more idiotic.
                              Arin cant work off a manic pixie yes man so he's defaulted into being a dull lump. And no loud yelling doesnt eaqual funny or a personality.

                                          About Dan blindly accepting whatever Arin says is true... That's necessarily true. There have been instances where Dan gave him suggestions that turned out to be right, that Arin completely blew off.

                                                Funny is subjective though. It's definitely different now than it used to be a few years ago. Missing some old funny players and switched to Super Mega, who are definitely not funny.

                                                Edit: I 100% agree with the business stuff you bring up. He drops people from the platform crazy fast if he hears unsubstantiated ANYTHING about them.

                                                    Lol I can't tell if this video is serious or satire. So I'm gonna make the counter arguments as we go along


                                                    "Why is it called a power hour if it's only 10 minutes" That's the joke? It's a contradictory statement that goes even deeper because their episodes are neither 10 minutes nor an hour. Plus it funny and people like it so whats the problem?

                                                    Yes, Game Grumps went from a channel to a brand. Is that a bad thing? They make money providing people with something they want. They have to make money to live so they do it in an honest and upfront kind of way. You go see a live show of game grumps. Guess what, that's what ya get. No strings attached. Mystery grab bag of pins? Kool. It's like Pokemon card packets but for pins.


                                                    "Arin is heavily reliant on the person he's playing off of" Well yes, that's what a comedy duo is. It's not wrong, he just doesn't like solo acts. His who comedic style was build off of at least having someone else to play off of. Of course he sounds different when he's alone.


                                                    "Arin and Jon worked well with each other because they both acted like assholes and we're afraid of the other person. Dan on the other hand comes off like he's afraid to tell arin when he's wrong and blindly accepts anything arin says." Well I can't tell you how to feel about how he comes off but I can tell you that this statement isn't a literal representation of their partnership. Dan tell Arin he's wrong all the time. It's actually a running gag amidst the fans that Arin doesn't ever listen to Dan when he's trying to tell Arin he's wrong about something and it almost always bite arin in the ass in within a few minutes. Arin is just louder and more stubborn than Dan. Your one example of something Ross said in a livestream isn't evidence. It's a exaggerated retelling of something funny that someone else observed.


                                                    "Side note: Is arin bad at videogames or is her just faking it for the video" Neither. He's multitasking at trying to be a comedian, listening for vocal ques from he comedic partner, and playing a game. Were he to focus on one it would provide and must less entertaining experience. Some people make their channels off of being good at videogames. Game Grumps isn't one of them and that's okay.


                                                    "I do think he's playing an exaggerated version of himself." Of course he is. Most Let's players do. Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, PewDiePie and yes Game Grumps. It's not a secret.


                                                    "His fans will believe anything he says." You couldn't have picked a worse example than Sonic Boom. If the idea that people think Sonic Boom is a bad game because Arin said so then you're either delusional or an comedic genius. Sonic Boom was a commercial flop, it was riddled with gaming error and lacked all kinds of polish. The game is a nightmare, objectively bad. And no one blindly believes Arin. Dan, maybe. Arin is usually wrong about a lot. But when he makes a calculated judgment about something and explains it in manner, backed up with evidence and examples (Like in squealitis) then people tend to listen and respond in a positive manner. That's just how any compelling argument is made.


                                                    "Your average game grumps episode can go one of two ways. 1 - Arin fumbles around in a game while they make very boring small talk...with each other" Yeah, okay. That's fair. I agree with this statement.

                                                    "Or 2 - Arin or Dan says something funny, they snicker for a minute or two, then they repeat the joke...then they repeat it, again..." Because it's still funny. You've never had a moment when you and your friend find something hilarious and like saying it back to each for a while? Have you never had some kind of moment when all you want to do is laugh about the funny moment for a while? That's what they do. It was funny, let them enjoy the funny thing.


                                                    Your example 8:59 says they repeat the joke into the ground over the course of 7 episodes. That's also fair. It wasn't that funny but they thought it was funny so they kept doing it. And it's not like it the only thing they over said over the course of 7 episodes. There are plenty of examples of them repeating a joke to increased hilarity. The Barrak Obama "I'm gonna pre" from Kirby's Dream course is a great example of it working.


                                                    "You eventually run out of life stories to tell..." Sure but we also liked those life stories.


                                                    "...So you have to resort to stuff like...You ever seen this family guy episode...well instead of actually telling you what the joke is, I'll describe it for you" Have you never watched Family guy? It's very much so a show centered around the visual. It's a cartoon. Just telling the joke doesn't make it funny, you have to describe the context!


                                                    "So just because Jon said some questionable things on a livestream once, which he has since apologized for, you wont let him on your show." First, we don't know what happened between jon and arin. It's possible they aren't friends anymore. That's none of our business. Just because you want Jon back doesn't mean arin or jon is comfortable with it. Both sides are pretty close to their chest with their cards. Leave the guy alone about his personal life.


                                                    11:15 Dude, that was 7 years ago. Let it go. People make mistakes and tbh this is the most mild use of the N word I've ever heard. He wasn't directing it any any nor did he say in any derogatory way. It's very possible he just wanted to "get it out of his system" so we don't have an incident like pewdiepie he he mindlessly lets an n bomb drop.



                                                    And as for the tweet from Susie from 9 years ago (seriously, let it go. people change) she made an observation and asked a question regarding a problem she had and addressed it. It's her right to say whatever she wants. She didn't say anything like black people suck, she was wondering about the cultural difference between her and black people. They same thing happens with Chinese people when they come from china. They don't really have personal boundaries because they have to crowd sidewalks just to stay off the road. They have the same habits when they go anywhere else. People find it rude, they don't understand the problem.


                                                    The Goddammit Ross meme, although it was started by Arin, got way out of hand. Instead of it being some silly joke it ruined Ross's reputation. People stopped treating his like a persona and treating him like an untrustworthy asshole who only trolled people. That's all people ever wanted out of him. Ross actually asked Arin to and Arin has stated a lot of times in the past that he wanted it to stop and was sorry that he started something that hurt his friend so much. Your example tweet from Sherrie S only shows her side. How about show us what Arin ACTUALLY said so people can make an informed decision instead of "blindly believing everything [you] say."


                                                    Here's the full context https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dz97oGnU1FU&feature=youtu.be&t=2694


                                                    Also, Arin shouldn't have to apologize. Someone said something bad about his friend. Whether it's in a joking manner or not, he has the right to feel defensive about someone he cares about especially when he's been trying to stop it because it happens so much. and it is TOTALLY different when "Goddommit Ross" come from a friend vs. when it comes from a rando. Ross is Arin's friend, not not the rando. There's a different context and one of them lacks a relationship dynamic. (BTW Sherrie S has also said " I don't need an apology cos he said how he felt and that's his right.")


                                                    "And I give it a few more years before it looks like a corpse...like his wife" Okay, now that's just not kool. Just because you recognize it's in bad taste and say it's too far doesn't excuse you leaving it in the video. You're the one who made the video. if you really thought it was too far you wouldn't have kept it in and animated it. Now you just come across and disingenuous and like you're trying to hurt them. I'm not going to say it's not funny because i'm sure to someone it is, but at the very least it's a lazy joke.


                                                    TL;DR, this video is a shitpost on Arin (Not the game grumps) for not being his type of entertainment and blowing things he's done wrong WAY out of proportion. You're objectively wrong about a few things. It's okay if you don't wanna watch anymore but just leave it at that man. This whole video is you grasping at straws for a reason why you want to dislike Arin.

                                                      Yeah game grumps isn’t funny anymore but i don’t think commentating on others people content is any bit entertaining either (this character where you act annoyed and disappointed is the copy paste of every commentator and its getting fucking tiring)😑

                                                        imagine Jon and Danny running Game Grumps instead of Arin

                                                          I personally like listening to alot of their old funny compilations more then anything but that little "turn into a corpse like arins gf" was pretty childish, like "oh, his gfs a corpse, haha hahahahahahahahahaha"

                                                            I never understood why two idiots giggling over video games like schoolkids is very funny or interesting? they don't give any interesting game trivia, or history, they just giggle like morons on too much weed while playing console games. Crap.

                                                              It's just a show for young people. Maybe you should watch something that actually satisfies your judgemental personality traits. Game grumps is more for perceiving people.. people who actually enjoy repetition.

Game Grumps (the brand) is too large now to dare to get their hands dirty. I'm not saying being edgy for the sake of being edgy is good, but everything just feels so sterilized and corporate now. Every tweet feels like promotional material, every episode is just a product pumped out by the machine. Once you lay so many hands on a product it loses it's personality, there's no intimacy anymore. It used to feel like two guys on a couch hanging out and playing games while giggling about dumb shit and talking. Now it just feels like WatchMojo style familiar, recycled formula every episode

Think about how many actors or comics get famous in phases.

My guess is that when Jon decided to leave, Arin just picked Dan as his new co-host
