Game Society is a Let's Play YouTube channel created by Aaron Yonda, Emre Cihangir, and Adam Koralik. Game Society is based in the American Midwest and plays a variety of games. The channel makes humorous content creating stories and characters in order to entertain their fans beyond gaming.
Previously known as Game Society Pimps and Game Society Films, the company re-branded their channel as Game Society in order to meet YouTube's new standard of business ethics.

In 2011, Aaron, Adam, and Emre co-founded a gaming channel, Game Society (formerly known as GameSocietyFilms and GameSocietyPimps). Aaron, with his co-host Emre Cihangir, provides comedic gaming commentary, often telling stories and epics with crude humor. In many of these videos, Aaron engages in friendly banter with Emre.
Partnering with voice actor Jason Stephens, they have created multiple series with celebrities playing video games including Christopher Walken, Morgan Freeman, former President Obama. These videos are sometimes collectively known as "Walkenthroughs" and are produced for Machinima and machinimarespawn.
In late 2011, Game Society piloted Skyrim For Pimps, an epic tale of zany protagonists marketed as "a very special kind of walkthrough." It has become one of the most popular series on the channel, continuing for six seasons.
Following the success of the Skyrim series, they launched Fallout For Pimps. Similar to Skyrim, Fallout 3 provides Game Society a chance to tell an comedic story with its open world interactive gameplay.
Around this time, Game Society starts playing hunting games, most of them being low cost games. Aaron, Adam, and Emre often criticize the quality of the games. The concept of "father and son" is later adopted when they play a "Cabela's" game. Aaron plays as the father and hunter to his son, Cole (played by Emre Cihangir). The series is collectively known as the Angry Hunter.
In the fall of 2012, Game Society, at the time known as Game Society Films, shut down their channel and moved all of their content to their new channel Game Society Pimps, now known as Game Society. YouTube had demonetized their previous channel, which they had later explained to be erroneous but YouTube was unable or unwilling to correct this mistake. In order to prevent this from happening again, Game Society signed with a MCN, Machinima, which would be able to provide legal protection going forward.
Starting in mid 2013, Adam forced Aaron to play Disneyland Adventures, for the Kinect. This game has been a top requested game among fans since Aaron shows extreme displeasure when playing this game. This displeasure is compounded when Adam shows off his crude vocal impressions of Disney characters, most frequently Mickey and Stitch. The series has been discontinued due to high level of dissatisfaction Aaron has felt towards this game. Currently, convincing Aaron to play Disneyland Adventures again is the highest crowdfunding goal on Patreon.
In September 2013, GTA V was released. Game Society quickly created a series called GTA For Pimps where Aaron plays as a former heist man named Michael, who is having a mid-life crisis. He becomes an owner of Hookies, a family restaurant overrun by biker gangs. Aaron later plays online and with mods, salvaging the game that has dropped off in popularity.
Starting in late 2013 but continuing onto 2014, Aaron and Emre played Ride to Hell: Retribution, a game that got a 19 out of 100 on Metacritic for the PC version, a user score of 1.3 out of 10 and made Wikipedia's list of video games notable for negative reception. They describe this as the worst game that also almost destroyed their company.
In the spring of 2014, Aaron and Emre start a series playing a game called 7 Days to Die, an open world survival game in development. They play the roles of mad scientist and zealot respectively. While the role of editor falls to Emre for most of the content on Game Society, 7 Days to die is edited by Aaron. Initially, the edits were not aggressive, leaving much of the content uncut. Later episodes have been heavier in terms of edits.
In 2015, the Game Society began doing live broadcasts on YouTube. Adam manages the communication between the fans and the Game Society.
In late 2015, Emre went on hiatus for personal reasons and Adam and Aaron play Far Cry 4 to fill the air. Adam and Aaron engage in heated banter often calling for Emre to come back.
In early 2016, Emre returned from a short hiatus and they began a series known as Far Cry Primal For Pimps. Aaron plays as a prehistoric man named Glug in a prehistoric world. He roams the land of Oros with his not-so-trusty Owl (played by Emre Cihangir).
In mid 2016, Fan funding for Ride to Hell: Retribution was reached. Aaron and Emre once again play a video game that almost destroyed the company.
In early 2017, Adam introduced a game called Yakuza 0 to Aaron and Emre marking the beginning of the series, Yakuza 0 For Pimps. Emre plays as the protagonist of the series while Aaron voices over the NPCs in the game. The protagonist is a former member of a mafia in 1980s Japan who interacts with both the commoners he must now live with and the underground crime world he thought he left behind. Yakuza 0 For Pimps has become one of the most popular series among Game Society fans.
