Lets Play: Criken 2
Criken2 is a gamer and Youtuber who showcases him and a few of his friends playing games. They typically are in co-op, with all the shenanigans that entail. Notable in that he may play through an entire game, record it all, and only uses the funniest or most insane parts of it. This has led to all of his videos being very humorous.

Criken usually works with game clips tied to a particular game, but also does a series called "Criken's Fun House", which have clips not tied to any particular game, and a side series meant to satiate the fans waiting for "Criken's Fun House" called "Criken's Quickies". They, nonetheless, seem to update rather sporadically as of late. Is part of Polaris and sometimes collaborates with Broteam. His face, which was until recently never seen, was revealed in the Pax Podcast of what was then TheGameStation, which can be viewed here.

Tropes that appear in these videos:

  • Axe Crazy: Boon, who sometimes gets really into a game.
  • Butt Monkey: Everyone gets a go-around at some point, depending on their experience, but Skippy tends to fulfill this role.
  • Buffy Speak: Criken has not been exempt from this, displaying some traits in certain videos.
    Criken: OH! HES A...A ASSASSINS CREED!
  • Catch Phrase: Criken and his friends have many of these.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Criken is signified via white text, Skippy tends to have red text, Oats (or the secondary character in a 2-player game) has yellow text, and game audio is black text. (Unfortunately for OCD viewers, these colors change very often.)
  • A Day in the Limelight: Certain videos are only Criken and only a single friend of his, examples of this include his Aliens: Colonial Marines video, his Resident Evil videos, and his Dark Souls videos.
  • Epic Fail: Saints Row 3: How to Lose at Everything.
    • In the previous video, The Wrath of Gimps, Criken pulls out his parachute too late after doing a jump in the first Penthouse Crib mission, being totally unable to get on the building after a point, thus failing the mission. His partner calls him on it.
  • Evil Brit: Waddy, with his noticeable accent and propensity to mess around with the others before killing them.
  • Fun with Subtitles: A very large part of his humor.
  • Large Ham: Da Xing, a new addition has a ridiculously deep voice is usually screaming either profanities or screaming utter gibberish. Boon, too, who more often than not, is a Screaming Warrior.
  • Nice Guy: Shayne Hawkins, soft voiced player who's often bewildered by the games he's in and regularly pleads "don't kill me!" while running and hiding in multiplayer death matches.
  • Only Sane Man: Criken in most videos, if not then its Skippy, who is still rather insane.
  • Special Guest: Crackbone of the defunct Janus Syndicate at one point was in Criken's games. Criken stated that this was actually unintentional.
  • Sound-Only Death: Expect to hear Criken and his friends to make wacky and outrageous noises when they die. It's even more hilarious when Criken actually has to subtitle the noises they make, and at one point he acknowledged that hes become somewhat of an expert at transcribing death sounds.
  • The Reveal: For a long period Criken's face had been unknown to his viewers, until he made a live appearance at PAX East 2013.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Occurs many times in Crikens videos.
  • Troll: Criken and his friends like to mess with each other a lot. Usually Skippy.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Criken is, in his own words, gravely afraid of water creatures. Naturally he must face several such creatures while playing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
  • Younger than They Look: Was apparently only 15 when he started making videos.
