This video is just insulting to women. Not the riffing, of course, the actual video.

RE: One of the most awkward yet hilarious things in gaming
I watch him for the phillipdefranco show and SOME SourceFed videos but that is about it. If they want to play those games for whatever reason they have then kudos to them. I stopped watching Toby because I found his material to not be as great as say his New Vegas videos or DNF stuff but that is just me.

Some LPers are really funny and awesome.

Also I do not think it is JUST the quality of the videos that attract the Retsu group to them but the lack of commentary, the annoying singing, the lack of editing that people could easily do to make areas shorter and less annoying for the fans to watch. For example, say you are LPing a Pokemon game and you manage to get half way through a cave or what not and you are out of items so you need to backtrack to heal at a Pokecenter; instead of cutting and editing the backtracking and what not, many people simply keep the video as it is and that annoys some people because it is unnecessary.

But that is just how I see things.

LOOOOOL!

1:26 Why is women in quotation marks?
Is it inferring that this is something that's supposed to be a woman but isn't (but is). Also, how is the female consumerbase between 25 and 51.

Edit: Nevermind. I realised I fell into the trap of asking questions on a purposefully dumb video.

Not just that but not providing enough information about the game they're LPing, doing poorly like dieing over and over again, and worst of LPers saying, "Why am I playing this?" when they're playing a game their fans recommended to play. Bad Let's plays can turn off a viewer from wanna to play the game themselves.

Here's an example:





I have no idea what this game is about, but if the lper had left out all of his deaths (And properly downsize his subtitles) I might have been interested in the game. Instead I get the feeling this is terrible platformer. (This isn't fact, I really don't know what game that is.)

Also the ending was a middle finger, he probably knew about it the entire time and was just doing all that for "drama" or what not (not the harmful drama but the over rated drama)

I believe the proper title should be "Normal people react to a fucking idiot"




It's these kinds of things that make me hate people.

I did not like their montage of Pewdiepie videos, they made it seem like all he DID was rape jokes, yes he did do some but he did other things. Now he is stuck on penis jokes and what not when I am starting to get tired of.

The player is called Ikaruga68 and finds this game hard? You should take the name Ikaruga out of your name at that point.

Yeah but he has a loyal fanbase that I never understand(fanbases in general). I need to make it clear than when I (and some others) say "I hate PewDiePie" it's the CHARACTER I don't like. Not the guy playing PDP. It's honestly quite sad people think PDP is a real person when it's actually a dude pretending to be someone who plays scary games. The same way James Rolfe/Doug Walker plays AVGN/Nostalgia Critic.



He explains it there that it's easy to famous with his content because people want that type of crap content. The sad thing is Felix Kjellberg plays a character yet there are actual people who make videos of themselves doing it. Men with no balls. I don't hate Felix Kjellberg, just PDP.

I know PDP is just a character. I still hate the character.

As for that...other thing, I think I need to go bash my head in to try to forget that.

RE: One of the most awkward yet hilarious things in gaming
Fun fact: I've actually stopped watching Toby Turner's gaming videos. I still watch his vlogs and anything else he does, but the gaming stuff is done.

On top of that, I've actually have started to watch CaptainSparklez videos. Now he is a fun one to watch.





The funny thing about this is, he just created an Iron Golem. He named him Evil Knievel because he was always walking on the ledge, giving Jordan (CaptainSparklez) little heart attacks. Him (EK) doing that caused him to renovate Jerry's Tree (his house, basically). It's awesome. And such a cool video.

What the bloody hell was that!? WTF!
I'm like:
"Yeah Lightmatt, it's 3am I probably shouldn't stay up anymore for another generic funny LP but WTF that was like...a fully acted playthrough with anime expressions and...waaaah?"

That dude put too much effort into that. I hope he at least the 10 thousands of views. It's why LPs are so....depressing. Spend all that time for like 213 views. Pfft.
