    NeverKnowsBest video on Pillows of Eternity, I'm not through with the video yet, but his critique has been so far quite spot on.

    Fun fact i have yet to try any of the Pillars lmao.

    Watching this it seems the best way to play them is to just pick things thematically and simply wing it without bothering worrying about what works and what doesn't, turning those games into less than RPGs and more like paper dolls simulators.

    It's very boring and very mediocre.

    Imagine grandpa telling you of a boring ass situation from his youth full of people you don't know, places you've never been to and problems you don't care about in some weird Welsh accent you barely understand and no discernible end.

    As a game it's not the worst, if you can get it for dirt cheap and wish to burn a few dozen hours, go for it. It's an established piece of Codexian culture after all, that alone should warrant a playthrough imho. Just be prepared for a so-so story, mediocre writing and somewhat bland characters, with a few happy exceptions.


    If you just want a good game in the spirit of the old IE games, go with PF: Kingmaker, I can't recommend it enough. There's also a pretty decent turn-based combat mod on the Nexus that works with no hiccups. Although you need to somewhat police yourself, since it allows a couple of illegal actions, like moving after a charge. In case you end up getting it, I also suggest grabbing cheat engine for its speedhack feature.

    I take back everything I said about Youtube channels being worthless! That Smack Talk guy is a treasure. Shame he doesn't do many videos.

    Guy annoyed me off the bat. Game is perfect. Zero need for mods. I've never played the game whatsoever with any stupid ass fan patches or mods, and I've been playing this game since I was 10 years old. Fuck anyone who wants to mess with a perfect game.

    HCBailly if you want to see a soothing furry-voiced fellow go through old JRPGs with a fine-toothed comb, showing how to minmax and literally every square centimeter/item/goblin of the game:

    Mega Drive Profile is pretty cool and downright criminally underrated. Thought that he stopped uploading, but it seems he's back, with SNES game none the less:

    The reviews are quite well researched and actually feature competent gameplay and good advice regarding the game, kinda like Civvie.

    Don't know if I mentioned this one already, but Xoxak is hilarious, although everything was uploaded a decade ago.

    I got introduced to Mars Matrix this way, thanks to that wonderful SHMUP loving hillbilly.

    Although I've never understood the pleasure in watching another person play a game, I recently stumbled upon this gentleman here, playing dwarf fortress:


    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaifrB5IrvGNPJmPeVOcqBA


    The guy does a number of drawings (both on paper and 8-bit art) and customized 8-bit intros consisting of small clips + synth music, to illustrate his playthroughs, which are usually themed around some crazy project like: under/above water forts, full vampire population and river-taming just to name a few. Nothing a DF veteran wouldn't have tried by himself, but since the episodes are rich in illustrations and heavily abridged, they make for a nice 20 minutes show.
