Game Grumps/Steam Train Thread

6,057 posts in this topic

I'm surprised nobody really made a thread for this thing since I keep seeing Game Grumps jokes around this forum, but here it is. It'sa Jontron. It'sa Egoraptor. They do games together. Straight to the point. The best videos to start with is the Goof Troop series of GG vids.

But other than that, currently they're doing Mega Man 7, Pokemon Emerald, Secret of Mana, and according to the newest episode

They're probably doing Smash Bros Brawl's story mode.

Anyhow, Grumps.

Its odd to say this, but with a lot of these games, I hope they dont play all the way through.

Like with pokemon, or maybe mana, it might take too long for them to finish and will stop being funny.

With their rate of progress in Pokemon, there is a good chance they'll stop playing it fairly soon.

I would like to see Game Grumps play Mario Kart Double-Dash co-op. They might not get many episodes out of it, but imagine what would happen with both of them on the same kart.

WELCOME BACK TO GOOFIMPS DON'T

About time someone made a thread on Game Grumps. It has to be my favorite new channel in a long time.

As for the games they choose to play they should stick to short co-op games they can wrap up in 10-12 vids. That's why Goof Troop is their funniest game yet, but really any short game will do. I really want to see them tackle a classic Sonic game, it would be kind of co-op with Tails getting left behind if a second player is tagging along. If they were to play a Sonic game though, I'd picture them choosing CD.

I also hope this can also be a jontron/egoraptor general thread. Because apparently jon is working on new videos now that he has the time, and egoraptor's sequelitis series seem good enough for discussion too.

I think Sonic would be about as difficult as Mega Man for them, unless they grew up as Sega kids, which, judging by all the SNES games, they probably didn't. Classic Sonic is really hard for anyone who didn't play it as a kid.

But yeah, short, not extremely difficult co-op games are the way to go. There probably aren't many of those on the Super Nintendo, come to think of it.

I really don't like JonTron so it's hard for me to enjoy this. Egoraptor, while he annoys me at times, does know what he's talking about when it comes to video games. JonTron, on the other hand, is one of those big N64 fanboys and from everything I've seen from him, he never really looks at things outside of his childhood perspective; something a lot of N64 fanboys do for some reason. But that's neither here nor there. Another problem is that these things just go on way too long. Why are their clips only ten minutes long a piece? Why are they uploaded so spratically and out of order? Why don't they just cut out the bits they don't think are funny or interesting enough for a whole video and just fill it with 15 minutes of material they think is enjoyable? Why does nobody do this? Slowbeef and Diabetus seem to be the only exception in that they'll talk over longplays for the entire game and manage to be entertaining all the way. Maybe because I enjoy their deadpan and sarcasm more.

Jontron isnt that big of a fanboy, and if youve seen his stuff he is totally self aware of it. And its not like he goes around saying he's an expert on vidya, he just likes video games and the most nostalgic to him are Rare games, mostly for the n64. nowadays he doesnt even play consoles much at all compared to his rig. His videos are more like sketches than anything else, and are pretty entertaining. and whenever he does have something constructive to say, its pretty solid.

as for egoraptor, I would say his stuff has gotten better recently, and his sequelitis series alone makes him worth listening to.

 

 

 

 

 

Over two years later, in case anyone reads this. Egoraptor is a shithead and his series went from passable cartoons to unfunny uninformed shit. Fuck game grumps, and fuck you.

I saw one video where he said A Link to the Past was not only the most overrated game of all time but the worst Zelda game ever because he thinks Ocarina of Time is better, all the while pulling that "Yeah, I liked it as a kid but you should take off your rose tinted glasses, people!" card. Augh my god.

how does that how

that was old, and he has gone on record regretting ever making that video, and changed his mind about many of the games on there.

I for one hope he includes metroid prime, because seeing him add that on the list almost physically hurt me.

Goddamn, Egoraptor is one ugly motherfucker.

He looks rather average to me. You know, when he's not making faces.

You know, come to think of it, Egoraptor kind of looks like Spencer from iCarly to me.

"Are you touching my fat? EEWWW! Don't touch my fat, I'm self concious!"

Also, I loved JonTron's impression of Mike Matei in one of the Mega Man episodes.

I enjoy watching them, but it's hard for me to watch them fumble through certain things. A lot of the puzzles in Goof Troop I grew frustrated at due to the fact that they were extremely easy to figure out. Admittedly, they're also focused on joking around and that sort of thing can break concentration, but still.

One thing I can give them is that I honestly like most of their go-on commentary. Ever since I did my LttC LP, I've generally grouped LPs into two different styles - live commentary and post-commentary. Live commentary is a lot easier to do with multiple people, but it doesn't end up quite as "informative" per say. The discussion they had about LttP vs OoT was nice and all, but it told me nothing about what was actually going on in the game. Meanwhile, post-commentary can be much easier to do alone since you've got time to think up commentary, but unless you're a really good adlibber it's mostly going to be informative and that can get boring for people.

Anyway, Ego really knows what he's talking about, but Jon occasionally annoys me due to what SY said (that being said, I completely agree with Jon on Prime because I really disliked how Prime operated. But that's neither here nor there). They do have good flow together and can decently segue between jokes and commentary, as long as they don't get to into it.

As for their games, with their rate of progress and tendency to get sidetracked I can't see them ever completing most of the games they play. LttP they're never going to finish ever, Mana they're never going to finish ever, and Pokemon they're never going to finish ever. Superstar they could finish if they focused on completing the levels and not doing everything. If it weren't for the fact that kart games generally aren't that interesting to do LPs on, I'd say they should do a Mario Kart.

I can tell Jon is an N64 fanboy, but I didn't know he disliked Metroid Prime. That's ok though, as long as he doesn't like Other M, then I would have to hunt him down.
