There was a time when a three hour video was considered impossibly long. Not so much when I know there are 12 hour ones out there.

I love the long ones, the longer the better. And the more droning voice the better too.

Considering the first one was for the ZX Spectrum, i doubt that unless it's complete autism, if anything, i am betting on one of the SNES games being declared the best.

I thought Codex's GOTY calculation was elaborate, but this dude.

He rated PoE1 higher than fallouts, BGs and pathfinders... I reported his channel for hate speech
Be fucking careful with that. Whatever runs youtube's flagging system (humans, AI, monkeys, or a combination of all of them) doesn't have the brainpower to distinguish what will and won't fall under youtube's vague content guidelines (I doubt even youtube upper-management knows how it all works).

Anyone know how good this channel is? I found him cause he talks about Shining Force and has a lot of videos on SRPGs, but he blocked comments and likes so I'm not sure if his other content is worth listening to.

He's OK. Comments are available on his utreon account https://utreon.com/c/harvester/

Honestly, I haven't found a better channel for covering SRPGs, and he's got some "controversial" opinions like completely trashing Final Fantasy Tactics (and just now trashing Banner Saga). I think he'd fit rather well here on the 'dex.

What the hell is utreon? I saw his channel on Odysee (he only has comments on other platforms, because he finds the youtube community shitty. Fair enough.) and I'm aware of most other Youtube alternatives but I haven't heard even a whisper of utreon.

I can't remember if it was this thread or the Ys thread I saw the History of Falcom video from this guy, but in general he makes documentary style videos about Japanese games.

As far as I can tell, Utreon is yet another youtube alternative, like Odysee.

Not really.The banner saga video is a joke where he just bitches about the initiative system and the game being a walking sim.
In the codex banner thread there are people advocating for the initiate system with decent arguments.

He is more typical chan then codex.Surface level critique without really understanding the systems.
Also comparing void spire to breach(which is practically a puzzle game in disguise ) should be punishable by law.

Ah that's it? I figured it would have a gimmick or something. Like Odysee's blockchian shit.

If you care about shoot em ups The Electric Underground is a pretty great channel.

If I know gaming, it's probably 9hr to say the first one was best.
The first one was an old 80s Japanese PC game, the first NES game is basically an arcade remake. Bomberman 94 is one of the better ones but I enjoyed playing most of the early console releases.

That's... unexpected.
IIRC it was on the Mandy's list but with his speed and preferences (rarely touch hidden gems) it was unlikely to happen.
edit - watched it, quite a bit of missing content in ENG version
