I generally don't waste my time listening to some retard on youtube talk about games because in true video game enthusiast fashion I prefer to simply play them myself.

no yeah i know i'd rather play games myself but like, when you're in the bathroom bored and you want to see something about videogames?

i'd rather shoot a gun than look a video about guns but guns are expensive and also banned in my country so at least i can see some retard shoot it.

i have fun as long as they're not openly rightoids.

Avgn is classic but his recent videos are just painful to watch. The 200th episode was like watching a suicide note.

MechaGamezilla/The infinite Review is leftist and low key supporter of the IRA. Doesn't do so much games stuff any more but I still a good watch.

i can't afford a 3DS and i'm not messing with my phone browser just to watch the same threads i'm gonna watch at night anyway.
also if i had a 3DS i would so not risk it falling inside the toilet anyway so that's a no, i'm not bringing a 3DS inside the bathroom even if i had one.

I just want more people covering newly released indies. Like Splatt.

*The latter two are the practically the only gaming youtubers that I watch btw
Though now that I think about it, I also like to binge-watch new episodes of Matt McMuscles' "What Happened" series every once in a while, it's very interesting. Occasionally I do the same thing with channels that cover fighting game design and stuff, too.
RebelTaxi occasionally makes videos on video games for a more casual audience, but they're pretty interesting, cover niche games (usually from the 2000s) and have really neat editing. He's also an AVGN fan and sometimes makes jokes/references to him. Here's his video game video playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1kDv7b5go5uD8YOwct5UgQwS9cH0GQtD
Also check out St1ka's channel, vid related.

I agree. But what happened in that episode? I haven't watched that one.

I've heard this name before, I could probably check it out.

My 3DS charger doesn't work right now and I haven't hacked the console yet so I haven't had any new (3)DS games in about 5-7 years. I still enjoy solving the mural puzzles in Pokémon Picross to see if I can beat my own record, though, so I can do that while taking a shit. It's free btw, and it can be beaten without microtransactions although it takes a while.

>But what happened in that episode? I haven't watched that one.
It's actually broken up into three shitty parts. Mainly they consist of old clips of LJN games he's played, a shitty skit the culmination of which is "making games is hard I shouldn't have been so mean to LJN," and short clips of him playing a few LJN games he hasn't played yet most of which he says are just okay.

It's pretty embarrassing, all things considered.

>I've heard this name before

He collaborated with HBomberGuy Fitz Thistlewitz way back when.

most of the time he is on the side of corporations and has made stalin! bad jokes many times in his video

 No.14784

Ross from Ross's Game Dungeon probably wouldn't call himself a leftist, especially since he's living in (((Poland))), but he has intuitively come to a lefty world view despite not labelling himself or being politically engaged. In particular he is very environmentalist and wary of corporations and capitalism. I can't think of any takes of his that are particularly bad, aside from perhaps "piracy is bad mmkay". Even then he backpedalled on it shortly afterward and today he is fairly pro-piracy.

His deus ex video specifically and explicitly points out this quote and wonders why nobody else, especially reviewers, were talking about it:
>For a hundred years, there’s been a conspiracy of plutocrats against ordinary people. Number one: In 1945 Corporations paid 50% of federal taxes. Now they pay about 5%. Number two: In 1900, 90% of Americans were self-employed. Now it’s about 2%. It’s called consolidation. Strengthen governments and corporations, weaken individuals. With taxes this can be done imperceptibly over time.

well Scott as a character is supposed to be a loser consoomer
so it's pretty obvious that first of all he's not a political channel and as a person he's also a successful yet conscious consoomer who as a middle class american he's unlikely to be very political either.
but unintentionally a lot of the satire and evaluation of poor market practices within the videogame industry even if he's not into shitting on corporations directly.
unless you're someone who is into truning the being a consoomer loser as it's identity
then you're more likely to catch on the implications of said issue
and unless you're a complete retard like the act man who thinks loot crates are literally marxism then you should be able to put 2 and 2 and be like "oh shit! capitalism is enabling all these shitty market practices"
he's basically the "nintendo soyboy caricature" without the rightoid implication that it's a "nintendo issue"

I look for content I want to watch, not for creators of content that *alledgedly* aligns with my views. All you did was suggest things with millions of subs already. It's not like you found some genuine hidden genius like SnesLibrary.

Gonna be honest with you.
I LEARNED english with the nostalgia critic (and the AVGN).
I watched it on 2010-2014 on dedicated channels in spanish of the nostalgia critic who subbed their videos.
I LEARNED english thanks to watching subbed Nostalgia Critic videos.

Well, I learned English purely from Jesse Cox and Totalbiscuit. There's no shame in that. I think a lot of non-anglosphere zoomers learnt similarly. Also it is kind of funny how you could draw a straight line from me watching video game commentary videos to me watching Michael Roberts.

i started learning english as a kid just to know what dante was saying

the playfulness he acted with has always been my favorite thing even if i didn't even knew what he was saying.
that's how good dante is as a character, he could not say a single word and you would still feel all that energy radiating from him

well last time i checked i was slightly under the average weight my age (i'm 22) but that's ok it must be the estrogen and i mean it's just *under* the average but still within the healthy spectrum.
i'm reading a book about pirates, it's cool.

I watched the AVGN (and YouTube Poop) when I was still new to the internet, around the age of 12, and learning English. It was thanks to those two things, I think, that I learned so fast at that age.
James' accent definitely rubbed off on me hehehe

Isn't he living in poland because it's super cheap + his wife is Polish?
He's also used a counterpunch screencap in one of his followup videos.
He doesn't really like talking about politics but I think his wife has posted some anti capitalist stuff on twitter. He's pretty based I think and he's very passionate about what he does. Love the game dungeons.

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw series Zero Punctuation is probably the most leftist video gamer reviewer, and incredibly witty and funny. Highly critical of capitalism in his reviews.

I have to somewhat agree with >>14877
It kind of feels he didn't age too well and a lot of his jokes fail to land, kind of the same as AVGN. Also I have a feeling Escapist basically forces him only to review big shit outside the drought periods when he chooses some indiegames, hence 90% of his content is just shitting on lazy big budget titles.
