    Sorry in advance, Chris Davis rant coming...
    I've started watching his "isometric RPG" retrospectives, cause I have obviously thought it would be an interesting watch (and YT suggested him to me).
    Was a bit surprised when he gave the advice to play Baldur's Gate on Story Mode, but whatever, maybe some people need it that way.
    Was a bit annoyed when he ranted for a few minutes in BG2 retrospective that he cannot read with understanding and that he lost 4 constitution points permanently from killed familiars... whatever.
    But this fucking insight just took the cake for me :/ (and yes, I don't think Turn Based in Arcanum is that great, but this is a general statement about TB games...)

    Yeah Chris Davis is moderately retarded. He couldn't wrap his head around AC going up = good.

    wasn't he the same guy who complained about Deus Ex being insensitive or racist or something like that because he didn't like conspiracy theories?

    Turn-based is boring for popamole lovers who want "thrilling and non-stop action". Same people are perfectly fine with the games where you can sit behind the box and shoot waves of respawning brainless enemies.

    Chris Davis is definitely not the only reviewer who complained about counter-intuitive stuff like AC. I watched pretty much every single Baldur's Gate review on youtube a few weeks back, and several of the reviewers cited it as a negative point. I assume it's another byproduct of the fact that at that time, even casualized RPGs like Baldur's Gate came with a thick manual you were expected to read whilst waiting for the game to install or whatever.

    I knew about AC before playing for the first time BG, but still found it (and other DnD atavisms) stupid. Videogames shout stick to being videogamey tbh.

    I was gonna defend his Isometric RPG series on a few points, but then I remembered this shit. Apart from neverknowsbest, the kind of person who makes "video essay" content on RPGs tends to be a gigantic faggot.

    Chris has many opinions I disagree with, but they're his and his alone. He ain't an npc following the mainstream gaming mindset. Some people here don't take well to opinions different from their own.

    Anyway. The Nocturnal Rambler's Gothic focused channel was mentioned I think. I like him and here is his newest video I am yet to watch. Looks promising.

    Yeah, I agree about "neverknowsbest", his critiques are on point and quite interesting to watch.

    The game didn't include his political conspiracy theories so yes, it was bad for that.

    Saying something retarded with the "but that's just my personal opinion" caveat is not a defence - his opinion has to be either refreshingly different or at least supported by evidence. neverknowsbest is ok because his subjective opinions can be interesting and are usually rooted in things that actually happen in the games, which is why he's bearable even when talking for an hour about issues he has with the writing. His criticism of how the social and racial issues of augmentation are handled, for example, aren't only his personal views but also draw upon inconsistencies in the extent of aug adoption in Human Revolution vs. Mankind Divided. If Chrissy had titled his video "Deus Ex played by an incredibly narrow-minded generic knee-jerk current year r/news poster whose perspective on literally everything in the world is through the prism of a toilet-paper-roll liberal eyeglass" then at least he'd be honest.

    It's particularly funny because Harvey himself proved how NOT to do politics in games with Blacksite: Area 51, an anti-Iraq War game so aggressively polemical PC Gamer UK of all people thought it was cringe.

    If we're posting lore channels, probably the best Warhammer 40k ones are...

    Baldermort's Guide to Warhammer:


    Oculus Imperia:


    Show Spoiler
    And worth a mention are also...

    Luetin09 for the general lore:


    Majorkill for the humorous portrayal of it:

    people were calling skyrim 'a mile wide and inch deep' literally before the game released
    and this clown thinks 10 years later that's somehow an interesting original perspective deserving of an hour long video

    I haven't watched any of this dude's videos but the first 3 minutes of this vid is probably the most based rant about open worlds I've ever heard from a youtuber

    Grimbeard is a good chap, actually, but his humour, or better say - attempts at humour - is beyond bad.

    I haven't felt the same way about his channel ever since that run-in we had at a Fuddruckers in 1994.

    Abelhawk does some good shit related to Warcraft.
    The guy has all of the consistent upload schedule as a wet fart but I really enjoyed his series on Warcraft 3 easter eggs which in-depth while still being entertaining to watch.
