Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has hilariously roasted Among Us, the InnerSloth party game that has taken the streaming platform by storm. 

While debates about skill based matchmaking rage on in the background, a host of Twitch streamers have turned their attention to party games, with smaller, indie title like Fall Guys and Among Us absolutely dominating Twitch over the past month or so.

Fall Guys is perhaps the simpler of the two, but Among Us focuses on a group of players who have to whittle down their team to out the impostor and find out who has been sabotaging their collective efforts.

Among Us is the newest game taking over streaming platforms and entertaining audiences.

We’ve seen the absolute biggest names in the streaming world turn their attention to Among Us, including Ninja and shroud. The latter has been enjoying the game, despite describing his early games on the InnerSloth title as confusing.

During a September 19 live stream, shroud’s team quickly dissolved into arguments and name calling, as shroud himself dissolved into laughter.

“This game is so f**king dumb,” he laughed. “It’s so dumb. Oh my god, it’s such a stupid f**king game. All this yelling at each other, holy f**k. He says, she says.”

“I saw you here, oh, no I wasn’t there! Alright,” he finished. “Jesus f**king christ, it’s so dumb. Oh man, it’s so f**king stupid.”

Despite his words appearing scathing, many fans (and viewers) have agreed that the simplicity and accusatorial nature of Among Us are what makes it so much fun.

He continued to play the party game for some time, appearing to view it as a nice change of pace to the more serious, competitive titles we have seen him play.

As skill based matchmaking takes up the headlines, a vast number of people are enjoying their time on Among Us, no matter how “dumb” it is.

Expert trolls and fellow 100 Thieves streamers CouRage and Mako had their fun with Ninja during an Among Us stream that made the world’s most popular gamer ‘rage quit’ in disbelief with what he was seeing.

Anyone who’s stepped into the shoddy facilities in Among Us knows that the game can devolve into hilarious antics to either convince people of your evidence or throw people off the trail.

While matches with strangers can sometimes morph into really sweaty games, playing with friends or acquaintances is where the fun really starts to heat up as you get to know everyone’s quirks and tells.

But knowing your enemy can also open the door to explosive moments, especially if you know what makes a particular person erupt in madness.

The vote was split, no one was ejected, and Ninja wasn’t having it.

Well it looks like Ninja and company weren’t on the same page during one match, which gave way to an excellent moment in CouRage’s channel where the Red crew member ‘rage quit’ in a losing battle.

The game was down to just five crew members with two imposters still alive when a dead body was reported. This was basically matchpoint for the imposters if no one in the party got voted off or if the wrong person gets chosen.

“I screamed at the top of my lungs after I said ‘I passed.’ I put sus on Froste again but I f***ing passed, and the ones who voted him were Orange, Purple, and Pink,” Ninja protested as he presented his evidence.

This pivotal moment wasn’t lost on Ninja but – by the sound of it – the lobby was already tainted from previous games, which amounted to jokes and jabs going unrecognized within the actual discourse to find the imposter.

After crew members cast their votes, however, no one was ejected. He blew his lid at that point, since it gave the imposters a clear path to victory.

Apparently Ninja rage quit by leaving his Red crew member idle in the lost game, and CouRage said he even through his headset. Ninja later found out that the person he voted for, the Pink player, was indeed an imposter.

This is exactly the kind of tortuous gameplay that Among Us players equally love and hate, but this round didn’t quite go Ninja’s way.
