Game Grumps and Markiplier across their channels.
Game Grumps and Markiplier, Game Grumps episodes vs Drunk Minecraft episodes
Remember what I said about someone’s Word Profile? About how it’s like a fingerprint of you past because we learn to gravitate our lexicon to certain words over others, event more so depending on the context of your situation?
In my last iteration of the Word Profile comparisons, we looked Markiplier’s Channel vs the Game Grump channel in hopes of both finding how their Word Profile’s differ, but also to gain some insight in how to find the differences in commentary style during a Let’s Play.
We found possibilities like categorizing Solo vs Co-op let’s plays based on someone’s Word Profile alone, possible improve training from “yes-and”-ing everything your friends are saying, and even just finding out the baseline aggressive language that the two channels have.
For this post at the least, I wanted to look at the inner history of the Game Grumps, since Arin and Dan weren’t always the hosts. It was Jon Tron that took up the co-host seat with Arin and I thought it would be interesting to see what the differences between the two would be, if there were any to be found.

Yesterday’s topic: Markiplier and Game Grumps Channel Word Profiles
We ended off yesterday’s post about the Markiplier and Game Grumps comparison with a few open ends and some floating hypotheses.
We made comparisons between Markiplier’s channel and the Game Grump’s channel as wholes though the structures are fairly different from one another. Markiplier’s episodes are a mixed bag of solo-plays, compilations, cooperative multiplayer playthroughs and competitive multiplayer playthroughs. The Game Grumps videos have a different case depending on which brand you’re viewing (Game Grumps, Steam Train, etc…) and also are mixed between single player, co-op multiplayer and competitive multiplayer. This shifts the balance of words used a bit because the context for vocabulary will be different.
This analysis was supposed to be about a person’s/people’s Word Profile which is affected by the setting and context in which words are uttered. Because the contexts aren’t fixed between our comparisons from yesterday, the best we are able to presume are great generalities of a person’s Word Profile.

A person’s Word Profile is unique. As you learn to speak and get used to speaking a certain way, you gravitate towards certain words more regularly than others. This profile changes depending on the context of where you are in life and how you let life affect you. In stressful situations you can choose aggressive words, in one-on-one conversations you pick words that signal your shared history with the person, when talking to a crowd of people you choose words that elicit a strong leader role, when talking to a specialized crowd of peers you pick words that only make sense to that crowd because the context is already shared amongst everyone there.
You can find out the Word Profile by finding a person’s word choice when in similar circumstances and how often those people will gravitate towards certain word. You can also go deeper into grammar structure, sentence length, topics and topicality of discussion, but there are limitations to doing this based on how I got my data through YouTube’s subtitles.
What I went looking for was the distinguishing Word Profile characteristics between the Game Grumps channel and Markiplier’s channel, both because they talk a lot through their videos and because they have a substantial collection of videos with a different cast and they have seemingly similar temperament though play primarily different games.

These are the Game Grumps
We’ve seen how they use language on their shows.
We’ve seen how negative they can be with each other in competition.
Now we explore how their language while playing a game using their word profile focusing on Super Mario *.
More specifically, how positive they can be while playing a game.
Because they do like playing Mario games and because they’re fun, they aren’t typically too negative on them.
But there can be frustrating moments when playing a Mario games.
And sometimes that frustration turns into magic for the viewers.
Or we just get sad at what we’re watching.
Good thing I typically listen, instead.

These are the Game Grumps
We talked about how many mean things they say in the last post
They play a lot of games, and at roughly 10-15 minutes an episode they’ve put out a lot of episodes per game.
They don’t typically talk about the game and at 10-15 minutes of non-commentary, they’ve said a lot of things on the show.
Not all of those things are nice things.
And depending on the show, you’re probably not hearing something nice being said.
But they do say a lot of nice things, too.
They aren’t always shit-talking.

Their channel spans many different brands.
In each brand, the Grumps spit a lot of shit.
Because of this, they’ve said plenty of hurtful words.
But overall, they try to stay light hearted.
This isn’t always true for all of their brands.
