Shroud jokingly gave his controversial opinion on Among Us during a Rust stream, but Sykkuno and others weren’t having any of it. 

Among Us was one of the sleeper hits of 2020. The multiplayer social deduction game which tasks players with finding the imposter took the gaming world by storm. This is partly down to its simple premise, addictive gameplay, and overall accessibility. Combine this with top streaming personalities like Pokimane, Sykkuno, itsHafu, and xQc, and you have a recipe for success. 

Even Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek who is known for his impeccable aim and snappy FPS skills joined in on the Among Us action. However, shroud quickly found himself at the mercy of his fellow streamers when he jokingly made a controversial comment about the game during his recent stream.

Among Us continues to be a popular game amongst streamers.

Despite having released back in the summer of 2018, it was only last year when popular Twitch streamers started showing off how fun Among Us could be. While it may not be as competitive as Warzone or as complex as Rust, it does make for some incredibly hilarious and tense moments. 

A recent study even found that Among Us had officially become the most popular game ever when it comes to monthly users. While the general hype surrounding the game may have died down since last year, the love for Among Us is still strong. This is something shroud quickly found out.

“No, I don’t play Among Us. I only play real games,” the FPS star said in answer to whether he played the social deduction game. The Rust server quickly went quiet before it erupted into chaos. 

“What the f***k was that shroud?” shouted one player. The rest of the Rust server began to voice their complaints, while shroud desperately tried to back peddle on his previous remark. 

With a big grin on his face and the realization as to what he had done, shroud apologized saying “I’m sorry, sorry! I didn’t…wow, wow this backfired.”

It looks like shroud will have to be a little more careful when voicing his comments on Among Us, particularly if he wishes to avoid any comedic Rust court cases

Obviously, this was a joke and one that quickly left shroud at the mercy of the entire Rust lobby.

After an unexpected interaction with gaming creators like Quackity, Karl Jacobs, and GeorgeNotFound on Twitter, TikTok star Bryce Hall has said that he’s interested in playing a game of Among Us with Dream.

2020 saw a boom in popularity for both the TikTok community and the gaming community. On the TikTok side of things, there are creators making millions from their social media careers, with countless trends coming from the video-sharing app.

In the gaming community, the sudden surge in popularity of the social deduction game Among Us saw streamers and YouTubers like Corpse Husband and Dream garner extraordinary amounts of attention and, along with Dream’s SMP Minecraft server, have established a huge new community.

Bryce Hall is a hugely popular star on TikTok, currently with almost 18 million followers.

It then only seems to make sense that the two hugely popular (but very different) worlds should collide in some form. Previously, however, popular TikToker and Bryce Hall’s current partner Addison Rae faced backlash from some Dream and Corpse Husband fans, who wanted other creators to be picked over Addison.

Dream commented that the stream was a “blast,” though he did have to turn his chat to emote-only mode to avoid hate.

In another strange turn of events, influencer Bryce Hall who currently has almost 18 million followers on TikTok ended up interacting with a variety of different popular streamers via Twitter, after Dream replied to one of his posts.

Bryce had sent out a tweet that simply read, “Hulu n hangin type of night,” to which Dream tagged Addison Rae and replied, “Is this true?”

Clearly not deterred by the partly negative reaction Addison received, Bryce decided to take his opportunity and quote tweeted saying, “sup Dream, when we playin Among Us?” to which Dream jokingly replied, “when you learn the reply feature.”

And that wasn’t all, some other popular creators got involved with the conversation, Karl Jacobs jumping in to say, “what we watchin?” in reply to Bryce’s original tweet. YouTuber Quackity then asked if he should be following Bryce Hall, to which Bryce replied making fun of his typos.

The interaction was altogether quite wholesome and has got many Dream fans hoping the Among Us game does actually go ahead, as they are eagerly anticipating another stream from the popular Minecraft creator.
