The Family Gaming Team, also known as FGTeeV, are a family of six, consisting of the parents Vincent and Samantha Carter and the children Lexi, Mike, Chase, and Shawn. They signed up for YouTube in 2006, though they only became active in the 2010's. They make family YouTube videos about video games (formerly Skylanders), vlogs, comedy sketches, and more.

Their main channel can be found here, and their other channels are listed here.


"Who's tropin' with us, us?":

  • Excited Show Title!: Exclamation marks are used all the time in the titles of videos. It's difficult to find any videos without them.
  • Expository Theme Tune: The Skylander Hunting theme song explains that the family hunts for Skylanders toys all day and goes all over the place to find them.
  • Extremely Short Intro Sequence: Their standard opening is very short and just says the name of the channel.
  • Fleeting Demographic: Kids tend to have fleeting interest in video games, and the same goes for the Family Gaming Team, where they'll stop playing a game once kids lose interest.
  • Name and Name: Used for TheSkylanderBoy AndGirl, Brick & Betty, and Max & Midnight.
  • Periphery Demographic: In the opening skit of "Fast & Furious Car Chase!", the kids bug Dad to set up the race track. His response? invoked
    Vincent: Ugh, I was just about to watch Dora the Explorer season 3!
  • Advertisement:
  • Product Placement: The family will occasionally upload sponsored videos. One example is their "Fast & Furious Car Chase!" video, which is an ad for Anki.
  • Public Domain Soundtrack: The family often uses royalty-free songs in their videos and credits the websites in the description.
  • Title Theme Tune:
    • They have a very short opening that just says, "It's... FGTeeV!"
    • Skylander Hunting is repeated several times in the theme song.

Alternative Title(s): FG Tee V
