Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson

Whether you were introduced to Egoraptor through Game Grumps, his new co-authored channel with JonTron, through his brief stint on the third season of The Tester, or way back when he was a cult favourite on Newgrounds, once you find him it's hard to forget him. Although most famous for his game parodies, the Sequelitis series he's developed which dissect classic games and compare various vintage games to their predecessors should be mandatory viewing material for new game developers. The kid may not be able to program a line of code himself, but he's skill dissecting mechanics.
