>>283847993 The only thing that really bothers me is how they present themselves >on a podium talking down to you >jump cut every two seconds to keep the ADHD audience in check >every paragraph written is riddled with sentences that make it sound like what they are saying is God-like >they try to give you actual knowledge on a topic in five minutes; topics that would probably take a college lecture period to fully discuss >Videogames are art first to them and entertainment second
And there are some videos that are either entirely misinformed or blatantly obvious topics I've wasted my time on worse
>>283847993 I don't mind them generally. They can certainly get a bit pretentious and some episodes are plain retarded but it is tough to find academic type discussion regarding vidya and i do love me some overanalysis so meh
>>283849460 >every paragraph written is riddled with sentences that make it sound like what they are saying is God-like This is my biggest problem with their videos. Their short video lengths compared with the complexity of the topics being discussed requires them to use some awful language shortcuts to make it seem like their hot opinions are just right and you shouldn't argue.
They sell their own ignorance as enlightened. I've never before seen people so far up their own ass. They know jackshit about videogames, think ARMA is a Call of duty ripoff and generally annoy the shit out of everyone who played videogames before it became "hip" and "so nerdy" in 2007. Literally all their problems come from the fact that their first console seems to have been the xbox 360. And their weird obsession with outdated fads like zombies (which became nerd chique around the same time thanks to crap like shaun of the dead and the dawn of the dead remake). Before that zombie movies and videogames were just awkward shlock for creepy nerds. And then it suddenly became cool and attracted people like extra credits. Their points give you brain cancer if you try to understand them >don't gender gameplay >because girls don't like shooting stuff like what the fuck man, that's a huge assumption to make in the first place and speaks more of YOUR fucking bias against women, you little chipmunk voiced beta faggot.
>>283850528 >What the fuck has James actually worked on? Probably nothing. He claimed to have worked on call of duty, but I think that turned out to be a lie, delusion or a stretch. Maybe he was in a target audience testing or something, where they dragged people fom college campus into some marketing firm to play for half an hour and then check some marks on a sheet.
>>283850797 I haven't watched them in a long time. They had an interest idea; introducing video games for teaching school subjects. That's pretty much the only thing I liked, especially with how fucking hard it is for people to focus, kids especially, with the constant stimulation of technology.
I haven't watched more videos by them in a long time.
>JRPGs should be about epic story telling! >every JRPG is final fantasy! >lets ignore the appeal other jrpg-subgenres like shin megami tensei, etrian odyssey, Ys and Tales! >REALLY, THE ONLY WAY JRPGS CAN SUCCED IS WITH EPIC FINAL FANTASY-LIKE STORY TELLING.
>WHY FIGHTING GAMES SHOULD BE CASUAL (we already have smash) >WHY THE VITA IS DEAD (despite success in japan) >WHY MMOS ARE BORING AND NEED MORE STORYTELLING AND SHOULD NOT BE F2P (lets disregard how korea is revolutionizing MMOS with action-fast paced P2P games with crazy PVP) >WHY MINECRAFT CULTURE SAVED VIDEOGAMES >WHY GAMES SHOULD BE MORE DIVERSE >WHY STORY STORY STORY STORY
I know some people will object to the idea of creating something lengthy about a thing you hate, but I'd really like to see a list of all the things that EC has been wrong about, just to laugh at how big it is.
the worst thing about EC is that they are not exactly wrong about some facts, but the way REPRESENT those facts as if they are the sole 100% fool-proof reasons to back up their bullshit narratives.
it generally goes in this fashion
- game has poor sales in america (fact) - did well in japan (ignored) - GAME IS BAD BECAUSE IT DIDNT APPEAL TO THE MINECRAFT TRANSGENDER DEMOGRAPHIC AND YOU HAD TO DO QUARTER CIRCLES TO EXECUTE COMMANDS - HOW DO WE FIX THIS!? (there was nothing to fix in the first place)
I couldn't imagine how long the list would be, the last video I watched was the PSVITA one where they used ridiculously outdated figures as the current systems sales suggesting the system had sold like 4 million units from launch until 2014.
When it really sold almost 9 million(while not high, they were out by a factor of 2) as of their video.
EC completely disregards that the current appeal of the vita is as a niche console with niche games
it has found success like that in japan and even in the west due to its huge indie library.
Vita actually keeps alive many small companies in japan like marvelous AQL (senran kagura) which is strongly supported by a small but dedicated niche fanbase who is willing to pay 80+ dollar equivalent in yens for huge limited editions.
why not even mention that vita is one of the highest-attachment consoles of all time? sure it doesnt sell that much but apparently everyone who has a vita seems to be happy, doesnt that count for anything AT ALL?
but never mind that, we all should listen to EC and play super mario baby 3D adventure on the 3DS because its what is successful and nothing else matters.
>Other M is bad Samus was a silent protagonist before Other M, and giving a voice to a silent character will always fuck it up >Samus had extended dialog sequences if Fusion, 8 years before Other M >Kid Icarus Uprising gave voices to a silent cast and came out amazing
Not saying Other M is good by any means, but they could at least be knowledgeable as to why it's bad as opposed to just being wrong all the time.
