purplelzrd962 karma

Can you still play games for pleasure or do you find yourself thinking of a video game differently than you did before joining AH? Like is it now more business like, wondering (when you're playing a game) if there's any viable videos in it.

officialah1592 karma

We don't play games as often anymore, (with the exception of Michael) since we play them currently at work. Playing at home feels like wasting good content.

Can you see VR being a hit, or do you believe it'll be another gimmick like the Kinect is?

officialah616 karma

VR is definitely cool, but it's expensive, a bit inconvenient, and there aren't a lot of games. It might take off, but it needs some refinement.

dahngrest345 karma

AH has been going strong for almost ten years and you guys have managed to accomplish so many awesome things.

What have been your favorite and biggest accomplishments and what do you hope to accomplish in the future?

Also a big thank you to Jack. I met you years ago when you were doing the JetBlue run around. I was one of the few people to show up for the SF meetup. We drank and had a good time and you were incredibly kind, personable, and fun. We met again a few years later at PAX and you remembered me. Things like that are what make me feel like AH cares about its fanbase and I really appreciate it.

lizzycaput339 karma

Hi guys!! Thanks for making me laugh everyday! My question is for Jeremy: Lil J, As you were originally an Achievement Hunter fan, I assume you view fans differently than the others in the group. Is it surreal to be on that side of things now, and do you ever still feel like you are one of us (fans) rather than one of them (Achievement Hunter)?

officialah527 karma

Yes. I still enjoy watching AH content. If they're recording a video I'm not in, I usually stop and watch it. I try to stay in touch with the fans.

vidythekid317 karma

Thank you all so much for getting me through the rough patches of life! Now for my question: What is the full story of how Ryan was hired, I always here it's from Craigslist but has the full story ever been told?

Unwontable286 karma

What's a "shenanigans" that you guys had to scrap that you're all comfortable talking about?

Porl-Ball-Saul265 karma

Do you guys think Roomba will ever sponsor an off- topic? Or has Geoff's dyson betrayal burned that bridge?

officialah462 karma

That would be incredible. The dyson is too tall according to Geoff.

So if Roomba is reading this AMA. We would love to talk about Roombas all the time. If only we had some more new ones to talk about.

Bawbity258 karma

Has there ever been any point during recording that you guys have found yourselves to be too offensive? Has such a thing ever effected a recording or was it to just be edited out later and still released?

officialah450 karma

Yes, absolutely. Duck Dynasty was that.

Vorchevski255 karma

Is the cameo with Ray still going to be a thing? Or was his cameo really that one time when he came online and we saw the notification.

Ray is doing his own thing now. We hope he does well, but he's not with AH anymore, so cameos don't really happen.

tmac2015158 karma

Has a certain online comment ever really gotten to you? Or when the masses all complain about one of your qualities?

Like when everyone bashes Gavin for playing dumb, or Geoff for not caring, or jack for taking something too seriously? There are some days where all of /r/roosterteeth seems to turn on one of you guys out of the blue, do you guys ever notice this? And if so, how did you react?

officialah376 karma

At one point or another, the audience has always been against one of us. You have to remember that most bad comments just the 'vocal minority.'

Michael - The worst is when you reply to someone and the reaction to that is "Wow they're pissed" or "They're salty."
