    Pushing Up Roses is the sweetest girl you've ever seen on YouTube, wasting her life with recording long-ish and informative videos mainly on adventure games, along with reviews, analyses, and retrospectives

    Her channel is here:
    https://www.youtube.com/user/pushinguproses

    To gauge whether you'll be any interested in her views on adventure games, have a look-see at her Top 11 (consciously free of LucasArts and Sierra productions coz everyone and their mum played them):

    11. Black Dahlia
    10. Toonstruck
    9. Eric the Unready
    8. The Last Express
    7. Return of the Phantom
    6. Titanic: Adventure out of Time
    5. Beavis & Butthead in Virtual Stupidity
    4. Clock Tower
    3. Discworld
    2. Callahan's Crosstime Saloon
    1. Sanitarium

    These are the only types of video worth a damn in the endless flood of Vlogs and Let's Plays brought forth by the ominous Youtube algorithm that has casually wiped out entire genres & formats with a sweep of its robotic claw as surely as this sentence needed a comma. Roses is very knowledgeable in the point & click adventure genre, and I always considered the word 'sassy' to be a meaningless generic term until I started watching her channel.

    The list is a bizarre mishmash of truly great (Callahan's, Eric, Last Express), truly awful (Harvester in the runnerups) and "so meh I don't understand what they're doing on any list" (Titanic, B&B). It's also weird because she includes Eric, which means IF is ok, but then never mentions any Infocom game. I think the most interesting thing about the list is that it's pretty eclectic, which is cool I guess.

    You guys are only into her because she's a girl and she plays video games you like.

    You are desperate, pieces of trash, with low self-esteem.

    The best girls do not even play video games.

    She's alright. Her jokes fall flat, but she covers a good range of adventures, including classics and some obscure stuff. She's also got some great content together with LGR (their playthrough of Detective Barbie game was entertaining mostly cuz of her, with LGR playing a supporting role). She's one of the best on youtube when it comes to covering classic adventure games.

    Eric is a graphical IF though, with a pretty advanced interface.
