ScrewAttack is a video gaming website started in 2006 by Craig Skistimas (known as 'Stuttering Craig' on the site) and Thomas Hanley (known as 'Handsome Tom'). It started with just a daily podcast known as 'Sidescrollers' but has since become one of the leading websites in the gaming/entertainment world.
ScrewAttack became well known when it became an affiliate to Gametrailers in 2009, producing Top 10's and Video Game Vaults for them. Death Battle would go on to become ScrewAttack's most popular show.
ScrewAttack launched their own convention in 2009 called the ScrewAttack Gaming Convention (SGC). This would become an annual event where the ScrewAttack crew would throw a video game party with their fans and other YouTubers.
In 2014, ScrewAttack was bought by FullScreen, forming the ScrewAttack Network, where ScrewAttack would held handle the thousands of YouTube content creators. Alongside this, ScrewAttack ventured into creating video games themselves, such as Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures.
Late 2015, ScrewAttack was discussing with Rooster Teeth to merge their website into Rooster Teeth's, and become a member of the Rooster Teeth family. ScrewAttack.com finally became a part of Rooster Teeth in March 2016. This opened up new potential, including working with Achievement Hunter and Funhaus, and hosting SGC at RTX in 2016.
On October 10, 2016, Craig, along with Shaun, Bryan, and Parker all left ScrewAttack to form Game Attack. However, they are still part of the Rooster Teeth family. In May 2017, Bryan left Game Attack to work as a Tech Director and Broadcasting Engineer at Rooster Teeth.
