    What difference is it to you? Exchanging entertainment for ad views, then getting paid, is a job if it's paying your bills and shit. The only possible reason for your attitude is jealousy.

    Even if you never watched Youtube again, the audience it draws away from TV has definitely got TV execs worried. Think of the monopoly they had before streaming sites like YT and Netflix. It's certainly been a significant factor in the renaissance of TV drama over the last 10 years or so.

    I'd go as far as to say that serialised drama is even kind of blowing cinema out of the water over like the last decade, and it's in large part because they're actually having to try hard for the views

    I can be jealous of pewdiepie but people like him are rare. Others will have to worry about paying bills in a few years unless "minecraft streamer 2013-2018" or "making gaming videos with soyface on a thumbnail 2016-2020" will become something desirable for job recruiters.

    And he's making 2395$ per video. Also considering his content, I don't think he could have relied on monetization for long.

    For Dwarf Fortress, apparently one of the guy who got his footage "borrowed" complained, but the comment's been deleted. I don't see any problem in him using other's people video, but he should acknowledge it before being called on it.

    So? Why do you give a fuck? They landed a sweet, comfy gig, even if it's just for a while, and for this reason, you're happy when it falls apart? You sound like someone people would avoid speaking to in your "real" place of work

    Tbh not sure where you're going with this.
    My "real job" involves sleeping in my office, playing video games, hazing interns, posting on RPGCodex, and occasionally fixing bugs, reviewing code, or helping a coworker.
    Average youtube content creator probably puts in a lot more effort than I do for less pay.

    Some skills acquired in a YT career can be transferable, like video editing, storyboarding, community management/communication, writing, reporting. Of course I'd rather flip burgers than do any (most, video editing is fun) of that shit.

    That and neither of the descriptions of derivative content he has applies to young Ssethicals.

    I see. When using so many videos (which i believe he used from others) he probably forgot to mention all. If he used one of my videos, i wouldn't fucking care that much, its a lets play ffs, i would probably troll him a little (i dont make videos, just saying).

    So much drama queens ffs. It gives me a twitter deja vu ffs.

    No, he forgot to mention any of the "borrowed" footage. He only left it in the description once one DF youtuber said the the footage was copied and deleted his comment to try to avoid drama.

    I always wanted to make YouTube videos where I'd advertise it as unboxing but I'd rant on and on for ten minutes about something and never end up unboxing the product due to wasting camera battery, frustrating every viewer and leaving me a lot of angry comments.

    Why does this guy pretend to be a nigger/jew?


    Aside from that his reviews are average, I watched a few.

    Watching the videos for the "reviews" is doing it wrong. There's some infos, but the interest is the meme.

    I meant reviews as in general entertainment value. Obviously his reviews aren't serious. Is he trolling about hating jews/niggers or is he actually racist?


    I also seriously doubt he's living in Denmark.

    To each their own taste, it’s a paticular brand of humor.

    I don't think he's completly trolling, but he's exaggeratting a lot compared to his actual opinions, for edginess and/or joke potential.

    I don't think his reviews are *that* average. If anything, he pretty much succeeded to sell most of the games he reviewed to me. Basically, the last part of his videos are legit valid reviews I'd trust, second only to a monocled Codexer.

    He explores the whacky experiential side of things, often focusing on parts of the game that are not necessarily "play as intended" but more about making your own fun; it's not a coincidence that he often focuses on games that have weird emergent or simulationist qualities.

    Anyway, hopefully he doesn't go the retardo route of doubling down and just addresses the video use.

    He didn't really talk about the insane amounts of grinding required.

    Well it's a jRPG, what did you expect?
    Grinding is always a primary feature in those games.

    Still the combat was fun for quite some time, at least as long as I was getting new characters and new powers.
