why is arin literally the greatest human being on earth????
Someone else has pretty much covered the bases of this question, but I agree! He’s one of the most genuinely nice dudes on earth!
A small passion project he started, with a friend who isn’t even involved in its production anymore, has flourished into not one, but several separate businesses (Game Grumps, Starbomb, Ninja Sex Party, Gameoverse, etc.). Because he wanted to help his friends fulfill their own dreams and aspirations. So he used his own success to give them the push that they needed and has always supported them in their endeavors.
He donates to the charities that Game Grumps gets to sponsor, and donates to lots of up-and-starting promising kickstarters and greenlit games. He also sponsors his own mom’s charity fundraisers to help her with her own business.
And he gets so much negativity. People shit on Arin all the time. Not just in the comments or on social media but like people shit on him in-person for being bad at the games he plays or for accidentally saying something ignorant (which, might I add, Arin has ALWAYS apologized when he’s been called out for saying something problematic and makes an effort to be better).
He gets all this negativity but he takes it in stride and he works just as hard as he always has to put out content for us and to be able to support his friends.
