*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.

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.

 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"

He's also used a counterpunch screencap in one of his followup videos.

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.

While I agree with your points I think Scott is completely unaware of his consumption and hasn't thought too critically about capitalism enabling practices.

I think that's something Matthewmatosis actually does much better, without being advertly political. His critiques of industry standards leading to less interesting game design like in the lost art of souls games video are great examples of that.

I hope his game turns out well :)

Seconded for Game Dungeon. Also is pretty fair to even the games he criticizes despite sounding like he's always sarcastic. He's also great at reading into games (or overanalyzing them productively), which led him to conclude that "The Division" had a secret genius working on it to hide an anti-war satire in a "shoot down rioters" game.

Their content is held back by their personalities, like with corruption streams I find the corruptions themselves entertaining but Vinny's commentary adds nothing and sometimes detracts from it. He's been streaming for over a decade but he really hasn't improved or changed the formula from the early/mid-2010s. Maybe it's just not for me, but it's more likely that everyone who enjoys it is WRONG.

He makes wacky noises now and plays into his asinine fanbase's fancies. Watched that guy from the livestream days until about a year ago, and frankly he's been on the decline since 2017 (at the latest).

My favourite is the Lorerunner. Man is an extremely based radical centrist in the true, pre-reddit sense. The sort of guy who one moment will deffend the troops and the next moment will be saying that "we shouldn't eat the rich, we should shoot the rich", or go on rants about how copyright should be abolished. Of course, its very rare that he lets the mask slip and shows his actual opinion on real life affairs, while the rest is just him making great and highly detailed analysis of various videogames. Probably one of the highest autism energy guys out there, but never in a lolcow or looney way, but in that hyper-sistematic nerd way. Very unique guy if you follow him enough to know his story, and probably the only good streamer.

Anyone watch Warlockracy? I've only seen a few of his videos. He makes videos on CRPGs and mods of them, for the most part.
