    I like AH, they're how I found you guys, and now I've stuck around. Didn't watch resident evil because I can't handle horror/scare games, but loved the Mario party, amazing frog, and darksouls. I tried to watch FH, but I can't stand a single bit of their content longer than ten seconds. 


    I liked that you guys got real on try harder, and the interactions and comments here with fans. It's nice to know you're listening and that input and comments are helpful rather than being a pure waste of time. Keep doing what you're doing, make the week long videos and make a list of the games you can't get to until later. I look forward to watching them all.

    To be honest, I was excited to see Rooster Teeth have a new gaming division. I had been watching Funhaus since they were Inside Gaming and that got me into AH (even though at first I thought AH was annoying but now I love them). I watched a couple videos when you guys came out and was not a fan but after watching this podcast I think I'm in. I like the down to earth nature and the realness. I wish you guys luck as you grow! You got one more subscriber. PS the hitman video was hilarious.

    if do more death weeks or just a week on a game I will watch it for sure. Baby Boy Bolen gets me every time. Craig was good as well.

    I really appreciate you guys more than FH or AH, Mostly because you have a very strong interaction with the community. You are always open to criticism and suggestions. You try to include the fans in as much as possible. I love you guys. I do think the other RT companies need to support and plug your channel more. (not just "hey their logo looks like a pedophile logo") I appreciate your type of game play. I appreciate the call back to older games from the PS2 and PS1 days. I like the old school Nintendo playthroughs, and I even enjoy the app videos. You guys offer something that you don't find in AH or FH. Keep up the good work. You guys will get big if the fans have anything to do with it. #BleedPurple

      actually it was this section of this gorgeous film called Samsara. There's a section where mother pigs are pinned to the ground while their piglets are feeding. Too much for me to be a part of, personally.

      I've seen that film before, it's very deep and beautiful film. Thank you for replying, I always love knowing what moved people to be vegan. I'm also a vegan :)

    I really like the honesty. It's nice to know that things aren't perfect, because most of the time you only hear about issues and struggles after they happen, like when Burnie talks about working and making RvB in the beginning and how he had to quit his job and it was risky business and a big gamble, but all anyone saw was this up and coming web series, and to see where Rooster Teeth is now it's tough to appreciate the struggle, because we know the outcome as of today. And Craig I can understand the honesty it's refreshing because like I said its nice to see the struggle and the conflict as it is going on internally. It's really inspiring to see how you guys are being successful and growing into this amazing channel with great content, and I am doing my part to spread the word because you guys make the content I want to watch, and I don' t want to see that go. In all honesty I rarely watch much of Rooster Teeth's other content because I don't have the time, but something new and different that didn't originally pull me to becoming a first member (you guys) is what is keeping me watching Rooster Teeth content.

    Now I don't want to be miss understood. I love Rooster Teeth, and if I had more time in the day I would watch all of their content, because they are fucking awesome. Game Attack content just speaks to my interests more than the rest of RT so with the limited time of a working college student going for Electrical Engineering I choose to watch y'all kick ass videos.

    Continue to make great content!!

    i really want to know what the problems are here, i feel like there is some internal thing here. I bet they dont hate RT or any other people of the lets play family as people. I think its the business that is hurting them, i bet they were promised a push by the other lets play family members and did not receive one because in all reality there all still in competition with each other there competitors with each others in the gaming community. They have said they dont get the same money as AH or RT well they did choose not to get acquired by RT like Funhaus did. Idk i dont know im just a viewer. I feel as a Game Attack watcher though that it should be explained in some fashion as well as they can without getting in trouble. I see there Youtube channel has 80,000+ like is that not good? maybe its just in RT as a company they are not doing good, why couldn't they do this on screw attack? there is a lot of unanswered questions that i feel like the watchers would like answered. I watch all the time and in every video its like a passive aggressive comment to RT or AH but not like when AH and Funhaus are going at it. it seems genuine. idk its really killing me as a viewer to hear this every week just comments and stuff. AH even in the new video with them playing burnout seem annoyed with game attack. just they seemed like they had to be in that video together. maybe one of the guys can just answer these questions.

      The only thing really worth addressing in this comment is the question "why couldnt we do this on ScrewAttack?"


      The answer is that we did do all of this on SA. And no one on that channel cared. Lol


      So we split and now its flippin awesome. 


      You muh main demon.

      @GameAttackBolen It was much easier for me to start watching Game Attack than ScrewAttack because I felt like I had to try and understand the past of SA and it just overwhelmed me. I came from RT, so I just fell back into my routine of RT, AH, & FH. So the moment GA showed up I started watching just like I did with FH when they joined up. I had no expectations of games, I wasn't going to make comparisons with the other gaming brands, I just knew that it would be worth it to help build a new brand with its own style. I have not been disappointed one bit.

    I just wanted to drop in and say that I've watched every single second of content you guys have made and I've gone back and watched stuff that I don't remember as well. I am active in many of the places you can be as a GameAttack fan and I absolutely love you guys and love the stuff you make. It has been a very fun trip thus far and I always recommend you guys to everyone I know. The future will be great!

    I'm part of the problem for the gameplay videos not performing well, I'm sorry.  I watch every Try Hard/Harder and Mario Party vid, and most of the other four plays, but I get burned out on seeing Craig/Shaun as the sole representatives in two player vids.  Game Attack is small right now, but if it was possible that different duos could rotate in for variety in videos I'd end up watching more.  Examples: Shaun/Parker, Craig/Parker, Shaun/Chad(who technically isn't full Game Attack so I understand him appearing rarely), etc.  I hope your group continues to grow and catch on with more viewers, I've been watching vids since day one and plan to stay for the future.

    Honesty and Transparency, this felt solid AF. Shaun being all real on here was awesome and the brand talk of a developed and developing company was enlightening. Keep up it gents, you got this shiz!

    If you want a marathon game old school smash bros on 64.  99 stock battles me and my best friend would do 99 stock with 2 more max cpu bots and beat the crap out of each other and the cpu's for like an hour and half at a time, and we always picked Saffron City for our level with the random Hyrule Castle thrown in if we felt like it.

    gameattack is my favorite brand on RT...Shaun is a beautiful bastard, Chad is the calm and collected voice of reason, Sam is the mayor of cool, and Craig is the salty veteran who loves to shit on everything.  What is there NOT to love about you guys?

    Just to offer a bit of insight into why RE might not have done well. Everyone is playing it right now. I watched both AH's video and yours. I really enjoyed both but I was quickly burned out on the game I still haven't watched the most recent backwards compatible video that's also the beginning of RE7.

    Edit for clarity: I'm not a market researcher and I alone have my personal evidence but I figured I'd offer an audience member's perspective.


    In other news, I'm loving the Mario Party (First Friday) Saturdays. You guys should contact Micheal Jones from AH, he has home games of Mario Party all the time, and get him to come with a friend (Gavin, Lindsay, or even Meg Turney)  to play you guys.

      I almost don't like it when a big game gets released because then everyone makes videos in it and I don't want to watch the same gameplay a bunch of times. I think GA will do much better if they keep playing different stuff.

    I love these guys so much, I came to First Membership for AH and FH but now I await every new GA upload. I just feel like they need a bit more support from the Let's Play family and RT. I noticed on their YouTube that the video's with AH features average 100,000 views but they normally average 40,000. I think featuring more on RT Podcast/Life or in Let's Play videos will really help. 


    Absolutely loved the Podcast and Post show, keep it up fellas!

    Didn't watch the GameAttack Resident Evil play through for two reasons:

    1) I already started watched the one AH is doing

    2) The game is scary as fuck and my heart can't take watching it any more than ~1hr a week

    I can see the drive in you guys. You will get Game Attack to place you want to be because you're going to fight tooth and nail for it. You guys have done amazing work for the small amount of time you've been live. I know you guys probably worked even longer before going live as well to make it all happen. You have so much heart and your audience can really see that you want to make this channel the best it can be, and I can't even begin to tell you how inspiring that is. Love the real talk and love you all for the daily laughs you bring me and my friends <3

    You guys have awesome concepts already! Tap that app. four play. Mario Party every weekend. because that video was longer that made it even better to see.  Games like Dark Souls or Horizon could be done over the weekend just do extended streams or videos.  I love how you guys do the live streams like the Nintendo switch video and john wick stuff !
