Critz & Giggles, also know as CG, is an Australian gaming community, formed by members Kaz, Matteh and Prince Barin. They currently have approximately 14,000 subscribers and 2.3 million video views on their YouTube channel . They are most known by their Team Fortress 2 short clips, which debuted on November 16, 2010.
They're commonly known in their fan base for casual, community gaming (as shown with the TF2 shorts ), but they also have a collection of solo and group let's play series including Castle Crashers , Assassin's Creed III and Grand Theft Auto IV. Outside of YouTube, Kaz works within web support, as well as broadcasting the Australian Ice Hockey League
Prior to the creation of Critz & Giggles, Kaz had been playing casual TF2 with his former group, Pants Party, as well as competitive ladder matches for various teams as a fill in for absentees. His original class was a Sniper with a stock sniper rifle named 'Sheila' ("If the heavy could name his gun, then why can't the sniper?"), but at present he is now a Pyro player, playing with both a reflection loadout as well as a phlognostinator loadout. Getting tired of the competitive scene and a lack of gaming with Pants Party, Kaz decided to leave the group and form his own community, with the intention of weekly TF2 events as well as other games to branch out as a gamer. On December 10, 2009, the group was created.
Matteh assisted the community by providing their own dedicated server that he had been paying a rental fee for from Hypernia; by 2013, they had acquired their own server hardware which self hosts their current TF2, Garry's Mod and Just Cause 2 servers. The name was chosen based off a play on words for shits and giggles. The group began purely as a Steam group and only played in various games with its members.
In November, 2010, the group's first video came to life on YouTube. Since the channel's debut, Kaz has produced 99% of the channel's content and at present releases an average of 3 videos a day.
