So, when I started watching Game Grumps (after Danny joined) I was a little put off by some of the things said, mostly by Arin. But I loved Dan and I’d heard so much good about them that I was willing to look past it. I was so pleased to find Arin maturing as a person and becoming less offensive as time went on.
And then I decided to look back at old videos. Any video with Jon in it made me so uncomfortable and made Arin seem 20x worse.
But, I knew Jon worked with Doug Walker, who I love with all my heart, so I was willing to believe he, like Arin, had grown as a person too.
I should have listened to my discomfort. Watching The Jontron show, reading things he says, it just confirms everything I always suspected.
Bringing Danny onto the show was the best choice the Game Grumps ever made. I truly believe Dan saved Arin from going down the same path as Jon and has helped him become the kind and good person he is now.
To me, it seems like Arin and Jon got popular being offensive but Arin and Danny were able to grow and change from that. Jon never grew.
