Game Grumps is a webshow/YouTube channel originally created and hosted by Jon Jafari (JonTron) and Arin Hanson (Egoraptor), where they play games while doing live commentary, with the first episode airing on July 18, 2012. On June 25, 2013, after about a year's (or 342 day's) worth of episodes, Jon left the show, and was replaced by Daniel Avidan, also known as Danny Sexbang, the lead singer of the musical comedy duo Ninja Sex Party.

Around the same time, a Game Grumps spin-off show entitled Steam Train was introduced. The show features Danny and animator Ross O'Donovani, who also joined the channel shortly after Jon's departure. The premise of Steam Train is similar to that of the original Game Grumps formula, with the only difference being that the games played are exclusively on the PC platform, often through the digital game distribution software Steam, hence the show's title. Later on, Arin, Danny and other guests began appearing on the spin-off.

The channel consists of many series: Game Grumps, Game Grumps VS, Game Grumps Animated, Guest Grumps, Steam Train, Steam Rolled, and Table Flip; as well as occasional holiday-themed versions of their shows: Ghoul Grumps and Scream Train (Halloween), Jingle Grumps and Steam Sleigh (Christmas), Date Grumps and Single Train (Valentine's Day), Stout Train (St. Patrick's Day), and Cat Grumps and Meow Train (Aprils Fools day).

Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator was funded and published in 2017 under their name.
