    I legit haven't watched an AH video since shortly after Ray left, but I had to dip back in for this video. I'm not normally a big podcast person, but this shit...this was absolutely hilarious and incredible. Look at this fucking CHEMISTRY. Ray was always my favorite of the group, and it was never the same at all without him. Even so, I'm very glad he got to go out and do the thing he loved doing and do it well. You're a great guy, Señor BrownMan.

    2012-2015: watched every episode and every letsplay for 3 years straight.
    2016-2019: watches 20 seconds of a video every now and again to see whose in it this time around before deciding wether or not to watch it.
    Ik they can't really go back, and its not their fault in the end. TheXvid, the audience, and the company all changed since then, as all things do, but man it still hurts to think about. At least there's 3 years of old days AH to reminisce in when I need it.

    One comment I have yet to see, if Ray came back then X-Ray and Vav would be back together again. I admit that I did miss Ray after he left the AH crew. He was a staple in the videos and minecraft just didnt quite feel the same after he left. But lets not count out the new crew. Dont get me wrong, I love the guys, but then Lil J came on the scene and I was a bit anxious at first but he really grew on me quickly. He had big shoes to fill with Ray gone and I really feel he stepped up and has been doing a DAMN good job. I enjoy Alfredo and Trevor for sure, and they are growing on me quickly, but The crew will always be Geoff, Gav, Michael, Jack, Ryan, Ray and now Jeremy.

    i just randomly got into a nostalgic mood and went to rewatch some old Team Lads videos and found this. Honestly when Ray left he took me with him but I guess he kinda like dropped me off on the side of the road and I just kinda went off to be gay somewhere else. I never realized how much I missed these guys' and Ray's sense of humor bouncing off each other. I am happy Ray found his happiness. also now im remembering how much i related to Ray and damn how did i not know i had depression back then lmao

    Damn, these comments are just Ray lovers, which is fine, I like Ray, I just don't like him outside of Achievement Hunter, with the lads and the others, he is absolutely fantastic, but by himself, I just don't find much interest.

    okay, "flushable" on a product does not mean you should flush it !
    lots of things are technically flushable in the same way bleach is drinkable - the act is certainly possible, you just shouldn't do it !

    I like how Geoff says everyone who left got "fired" but he can't say it with a straight face when its Ray. You can't fire Ray silly.

    Even if Ray came back, it wouldn’t be the same. Everybody has changed too much from the old days, plus too many viewers have left and it would be too hard to get them all back.

    Glad to see Ray appear and be known in the AH community. As a long time supporter from 2011 having Ray was the best. His laugh, His jokes, his gameplay. He made the Achievement Hunter golden age.

    I remember the first time meeting Geoff and Jack of Achievement Hunters because I used to play the dicks out of Force Unleashed and needed some help on a level and first thing I found on TheXvid was their videos. It was the day I became a fan of Achievement Hunter.

    I think that while Geoff obviously loved Ray and knew he fit in with the group he created, Geoff also knew that with Ray leaving, the quality of Achievement Hunter would drop. And it clearly has. Their videos hardly get the same amount of views and attention as they were in the past, and I think it has to do with all the forced inclusion. Trevor, or whoever is in charge now, is too concerned with needing minorities, like women, and none of them are funny or entertaining. We see much less of the original gang in videos now. Them being Gavin, Michael, Jack, Ryan and Geoff. They're constantly being replaced by lesser talent. Ray leaving did suck but at least the other Achievement Hunters could still provide quality entertainment without him. Now, it's just a bunch of new people who don't have the same dynamic. Change is bad in the case of Achievement Hunter and I can't remember the last GTA or Minecraft video I've watched.

    Thinking about it in order to do let's plays the way the original six (holy shit they are the Let's Play Avengers) did, you have to know yourself pretty well, and be excepting of both your strengths and flaws. They said before even though nothing was scripted in their let's plays they would amp up their reactions to things that happen a bit for the sake of entertainment, but it was just their normal reactions jacked up like times 5 or 10 or something. Not to mention most of their content was improvising off of each other. Their ad lib was phenomenal. The closest thing I've experienced to let's players like the OG 6 today is probably Fitz and his friends. Kugo, Swaggersouls, John on The Radio, and all the others he hangs out with.

    My favorite Ray Trivia moment wasn't way to go champ. It was in Family Feud (same video as aforementioned moment) when he was answering "Name something that is harder for women to do while pregnant" and after two of his ideas didn't show up he went to put in walking but he hit the wrong button. Instead he put waking. What happens afterwards is pure gold, Geoff's cancer curing weez and then what happens in the game causes everyone to just yell and I think you can hear a couple of the boys physically getting up from their chairs to express and shake off the shock. That entire video was pretty damn good and it was just Geoff Michael Gavin and Ray.

    After Ray left it did feel like things started to become more structured... you'll have people just leave in middle of a let's play to go to meetings and theres too much content to the point of not being able to keep up with what's going on, there used to be a weekly let's play, one minecraft, one gta 4 (eventually 5), and one game that was always rotating, afterwards, theres just too many names and too much content, another thing is that part of the joy of watching was that they didnt know how to play either, it was so fun to watch them be idiots and just laugh it up, I've been watching for 10 years and you can see the shift and it makes me sad, however, I am happy for them as a company and proud of how far they've come.
