    My two favorite things that I've seen on GA are Mario Party and Death Week so it's honestly hard to say what I think of when I think of GA. I will say that I really like the competitiveness between the 4 of these guys and would like to see more of it, and I liked the mixture of fuckin around and serious gameplay of Death Week.

    I think the next 'big' thing is PS2, NGC, and Original Xbox games. And I think (?) that the audience of Game Attack played games in that era the most. Originally, most people did either retro (NES, SNES, N64) games or the newest games. Staying in the middle of the two would be the way to go and maybe get a niche audience.


    But I've also enjoyed #DeathDays a lot, so I don't know what that says about the content I like.

    I haven't owned a Nintendo console since the N64, but I'm buying a Switch for BotW even though I've been playing those other open world games on other platforms for years. This is the first time Zelda has it and that excites me. Horizon is the game that is finally selling me on a PS4, for many of the same merits BotW is being praised for.

    Personally I look at you folks as the much needed break from the staples of GTA/Minecraft and whatever new AAA release has come out recently. There are literally hundreds of decent/good Indie games releasing each year that don't really get much exposure. Many of them have co-op. Something like Scott Pilgrim would be great to see you folks play through. It's a beat-em-up with co-op for example.


    I know that the end goal is to make money, but if leaning on the newest thing isn't working, then maybe trying something else may pay off. I mean it kind of has to. I've loved watching Craig's solo channel slowly find it's audience each week. I know it's only a few thousand views but when view to subscriber ratio is 1:5 on something like that and AH (outside of MC/GTA) is around 1:5.5, there is clearly something there.


    And much like AH, views are going to fluctuate massively depending on the content, length, performers and day.


    You might also look into something like Roblox. It's pretty terrible, but people are constantly creating new games inside of it for free, a ton of younger people are obsessed with it, and it's something none of the other branches at RT have touched outside of a single HUNT from AH.

    I didn't watch any Horizon videos by any RT groups, wanted to buy the game and experience it for myself without and pre-conceived notions of how to play the game, how it feels etc.

    When I think of Game Attack I think of saving my favorite podcast to go to sleep to on thursday because its so damn funny I have a hard time falling asleep, but I get up early for coffee friday so it doesn't matter anyway. I think of the guys who have been a part of my routine since I became a fan of Screwattack 11 years ago (I was 6 at the time and wasn't allowed on youtube, so I watched on gametrailers and picked your top 10s out by the intro). I don't mean to tell a sob story but I have pretty bad anxiety and you guys have always been my escape. Keep it up you can make anything funny.

    not sure about how often you check this comment section, for me game attack is about game play and more so about you guys. to say is in a better way i like watching mario party, and gang beasts and games similar to that as its good to facilitate banter. i watch about 4 other gaming channels, and no one does banter better then you. so in short, games that are less serious, involve all of you and allow you to fight/ sabotage each other in some way. i also thing fast paced games with frequent action (ie mario party) is much more what i see as game attack then slower games (ie minecraft/zelda/ any open world game).

    I like when you play party games a lot. Other than that everything you guys have been doing has been great. I know that wasn't very helpful but keep up the good work!

    When I think game attack I think, Gang Beasts, Mario Party and salt, funny, funny salt. You guys playing a game ether trade off like Cluster truck or 4 player its always great. Also If you guys are looking for more Mario party-esq games Dokapon kingdom is pretty great.

    When I think Game Attack, I think retro games, long series, and crass humour, wouldn't change a thing. but i would watch some newer games made into a long running series.

    When I think Game Attack, I think about discovering obscure (to me) games like Amazing Frog and Conan that look like shit, but then either surprisingly turn out fun or you guys find a way to make it fun.

  • FateFaeron FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    The closest thing I can think of as Game Attack's thing is Mario Party and Being Drunk. But other than that nothing really.

    Fuck what the view count says Craig, play games that you love and make it entertaining and show that enthusiasm then people will watch that shit. You think I sat through Uno: The Movie because I like the game? I sat through it because that was entertaining as fuck.

    When I think Game Attack I think of how it felt to play games with my friends before we all got too busy to make time to set up a LAN party and game all weekend. It gives me an early AH vibe too. As far as the games go to me it doesn't matter what you play because I always watch it even if it isn't the day it comes out.

    honestly, when I think GameAttack, I think about your banter. You guys playing games and shit-talking is the best. It really doesn't matter what games you play (although I like your Gangbeast and Amazing Frog plays).  Each of you have a special something that makes you fun to watch.  Craig's evil ways, Sam's swag, Chad's competitive nature and expertise, and Bolen's smile and boyish charm...that and many other qualities make you guys my favorite RT channel.  Hell, I even like Parker on Tap that App.  Continue being you and don't change too much.

    Hey Guys.  Personally.  I keep coming back to you guys because of your personality.  The four of you are my favorite group in full screen.  I think that you guys flourish when playing party games.  You bring out the best childhood memories in everyone.  Its difficult to sit down with three people and play a game in this day and age.  I have a few game suggestions.  Fusion Frenzy, Dead or Alive(it allows 4 player tag team), the console version of Risk is very malleable, Blood bowl, Left 4 Dead, and Monster Hunter.

    When I think Game Attack I think 4 player competitive games, funny random mobile games and Dark Souls. Praise the sun!

    When I think GameAttack, I think Nintendo. I look forward to every Friday/Saturday now for Mario Party. I enjoy watching the Nintendo videos as well as the WWE videos.

    i see game attack as a channel that mostly plays nintendo games. I'll watch regardless but with other more mainstream games I usually look to achievement hunter first and I see funhaus as the weird niche gameplay channel that i see for the personalities.

  • RavenSugara FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    For Game Attack I think Mario party, dark souls, and older/retro/nostalgia games I haven't seen in a while or I might have missed.

    I think why everyone thinks Zelda is such a good game is because when u really think to yourself what is a perfect game to u how would rate something its always compared to your dream game and for me and I think most peoples dream game is something that has a mix of all the best shit about games out there with some new stuff sprinkled in the make it feel fresh and exciting and as far as the 1/10 scoring for me and again I think most people is the little things the universe its in the style the fact that the rocks are covered in moss instead of just plain rocks under a tree the easy to use UI for example I would love an open world scfi action adventure co-op game with a vast world and vast customization on play style and character appearance a  game that u can play the way u want depending on how u feel whether that be social or not, tactical or guns blazing but u suddenly make that the star wars universe instead of a SCFI universe and its a 10 instead of a 9

    I've got to say, after the Wii I decided I wouldn't get the Switch until there's at least 3 games I'll actually play and Zelda wasn't even on my radar since I've never been that big a fan of that series. But everything I've heard about it makes me want to get one. Touché Nintendo.

    I am a somewhat new fan, log time RT fan, and I really enjoy watching you guys play old games and having fun (the Shrek Mario party was a suprize lol).  Kind of like a mature Funhaus that instead of making fun of the games actually having fun playing them.
