Considered a landmark achievement in the world of web series, The Guild was created by internet darling Felicia Day and inspired by her own love of video games. Centered on a group of gamers who are hopelessly addicted to an MMORPG called The Game, The Guild follows the Knights of Good as their online and offline lines begin to intertwine to mixed results. Grounded in the anxieties and social awkwardness of Day’s character, The Guild deeply resonated with viewers and was praised for showing that more people than just straight white men can enjoy video games. Beloved by fans, The Guild was also acclaimed by critics and won several Streamy Awards as well as being listed as one of the best series on the internet by Rolling Stone.
