    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 RUclip 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.

    AH hasn’t been the same since he left. I stopped watching when he left and now when I watch a video it’s either an old one that Rays in or I just get confused by all the new people

    ray and gavin are fucking wholesome. always wondered how they interacted off camera. they play off each other well, but they really play each other up. their chemistry is fun to watch - it's weirdly in sync to be so random. ❤❤❤

    Ray is just so much funnier in a group environment. He's a great streamer but he's just so quick witted with the rest of ah. He slots in like he never even left.

    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.

    Guess i'm the only real pure AH fan (obviously not but still) but i loved AH just as much before Ray left and after. I started with Roosterteeth with Jack and Geoff then when AH Lets Play started taking off, naturally started watching. But I never had the super love for any one AH member that most claim, I think most people just stopped watching lets plays and decided to blame Ray leaving on it.

    There's no way for unobtainable achievements to exist, Xbox compliance forces you to prove that everything is unlock-able, indie games being an exception because the indie marketplace was a nightmare.

    I saw the title of this video and my face lit up but as the podcast went on I got sad from all the memories of the OG AH moments and knowing that it will more than likely never happen again I miss Ray and the times he brought I’m happy for them all I’m just gonna miss the good times

    Really happy to see ray back but I have yet to see him in another video. I figure it’s because they have prerecorded videos for this month. Idk I guess I’m really anticipating to see ray in any ah video

    Still can't believe that Jeremy replaced Ray...Ray's natural humor vs Jeremy's forced and desperate humor is depressing. AH died the day Ray left.
    It's also how amazing when Geoff, and to a lesser extent Gavin and Michael, admit that AH and RT are completely different companies and that it's disappointing how much it changed. You can tell that Geoff wants to go back to the old AH so bad, just having Ray there makes Geoff seem 15 years younger.

    Dude. Ray was the reason I watched AH and truly enjoyed GTA V and Minecraft videos. I truly missed Ray and stopped watching as much after he left. It felt like I was watching something else; but I still love the guys regardless. Been watching for 7 years.

    And ray only came back because RT is losing views. So they only uses his popularity for their own selfish needs.
