so /vr/, I've never paid much attention to youtubers for any topic really but recently started watching few /vr/ related videos and it turns out, that they can be quite entertaining.

what are your favourite channels? watched a bit of pic related, who is disgusting to look at and also making me cringe ever so often but his content seems spot on. also SNESdrunk or something and some cygnus guy, the latter i find unbearable though

Comfiest game guy who does a lot of retro shit is Mark "lord karnage" from CGR

It's just "reviews" but I find him comfy

Can't stand "metal jesus" he is so goddamn awful to look at, listen to, and just makes me cringe to DEATH

I like futurematt5. He rarely posts anymore though.

>> No.3627291

I used to love Mark but after watched other youtubers I realized how little effort he puts into his videos, he clearly doesn't do any research, barely even reviews the games, mostly just calls things "awesome" or "fun", with shitty dad humour thrown in, and his "epic" slow tone of voice, I just can't sit through any of his videos anymore.

I get that he's an OG and is just having fun, but if you want an in-depth, well thought out review, he's not you're guy

>> No.3627305

>but his content seems spot on

How in the fuck is his content spot on? All he does is hold up the box of a game and just vaguely describe it while saying it's one of his favorites. In fact the way he describes everything is so brief and vague I highly doubt he's even played some of the stuff he claims are hidden gems.

>> No.3627330

Gerion79, Guru Larry, Kimble Justice, and (somewhat) The Nostalgia Nerd are all good. Besides them, only CGR and Game Sack are maybe worth watching. If you like documentary style videos, then Kimble Justice is the best, even if he thinks he's a woman now. Sad!

Yahtzee would occasionally LP a retro game (or later ones that I like). Don't know what he'll do with that now, he had pretty good chemistry with Gabe.

AVGN can be fun at times but I take his opinions on difficulty and gameplay with a grain of salt.
He's incredibly bad at Doom, like, controls aren't even an excuse, he was playing one of the PS3 ports which has about the best controls the base game can have on a gamepad and he still did terribly.
One really shouldn't do so poorly under those circumstances, I'd hate to see him play Duke Nukem 3D.

Can't think of a lot of others right now, but I use YouTube for other interests too.

I like him too.
Calm, collected, doesn't ever really put on an annoying act for the most part. He has a wide range of tastes in games (all kinds of genres, from old to new), is pretty thourough in what he likes and doesn't like in a game. He's informative. Also does a good Duke Nukem impersonation.

Wish I found out about him sooner. He has a passion for old tech which is neat, it's like he has this friendly and controlled autism driving him.

>> No.3627454

I suggest you watch one of his behind the scenes videos if you think he puts no effort in. He doesn't spend a lot of time researching the games he reviews because he reviews tons of them and what would even be the point? It's just a relaxed show where a guy who loves games talks about them. What information do you really need from a review of an Atari game other than "here is what you do, it's fun/not fun."

I miss 16 bit gems. Even though Clan of the Grey Wolf (or just "Roo") didn't need to call those games hidden gems, it was still fun to see some less talked about games being reviewed with some background history or watching them review a game I know from childhood and still enjoy thoroughly being reviewed in a different light than I saw it.

At least they didn't sell out making "paid content" on youtube but still consider it to be a hobby just like it's supposed to be. Fuck those faggots who think they're "working so hard" on fucking let's play videos and need a patreon for just that.

It's mind boggling to see so many e-celebs acting like they know so much more about politics than others and using their twitter for their political agenda. The butthurt from guys like Brentalfloss is awkward to say the least. Yes I know they can use twitter for stuff that isn't as much related to their videos but c'mon even after a week guys like Ghideon Zhi and Brent are still being so butthurt about it. Kinda hypocritical how they've been telling trump voters they shouldn't act childish before the elections.

In general, it would be better if they could just cut the political crap and instead worked on making new videos for what they're known for. I'm following Brentalfloss for his music videos, not for knowing what's politically wrong or right. If that were the reason then you might as well follow politicians, parties, news websites or whatever it is what's supposed to be about politics in the first place ...

TL;DR Youtube and the ad revenue system were a mistake.

I didn't really expect Pat to be so mature and calm about it.
Though I guess he's never the kind of guy to fly off the handle.

Let me guess, he was one of the people who exploded in fury over the fact that third party voters (and lots of democrats) didn't vote for Hilldog?

Yeah, I'm seldom too interested in the political opinions of e-celebs (or celebs in general), many make broad statements on subjects they actually don't really understand that well or have at all looked into or researched by themselves (Yhatzee comes to mind).

LGR is boss. I don't even care about half the shit he's reviewing as I missed out on a lot of 90s PC games but his videos are always super comfy.

Game Sack deserves at least a mention - great production, never gets hijacked by guests or skits or anything, dry kind of 90s magazine show style. Really good for finding obscure-ass shit and information, even though their actual opinions can be pretty...strange.

Also shoutout to SNESDrunk who I actually remember shilling his channel in one of these threads back when he had like 10 subscribers - really enjoy his stuff, it's super laid back and he hasn't changed a bit.

I love this channel, even though what you said is 100 % correct, he still knows his shit when it comes to arcade/pinball

>> No.3628879

In the span of one year he found out he not only had a heart condition (something about how if he starts getting worked up, his heart doesn't actually really slow down afterwards) but that he was also bipolar, which was misdiagnosed as regular depression, that he was given regular anti-depressants for (which mostly makes things worse if you're bipolar), so not only did he periodically get really weird and emotional (alienating a lot of friends and getting into trouble with Channel Awesome), I think a lot of physical things were progressively more draining.
