Probably more so bc you are at least getting something from a handful of people who sub to you whereas you otherwise wouldn't get anything with that sort of viewcounts.

Videogames in Lord of the Rings universe, from LotR on the Atari and MS-DOS up to Shadow of War DLC and some card game.
Battle for Middle Earth and other strategies in one pile.

Watched a couple more of his videos.
Eh,mediocre to just terrible.
When it comes to gameplay mechanics he is full on causal(minus pokemon for some reason) and doesn't even attempt to actually discuss anything in dept and yet spends minutes blabbering about wikipedia stuff.

A couple of highlights:
-Lotr video weird obsession with wasting the rts part talking about the console version for some reason?Not even attempting to discuss game play of older titles.
Admitting the hobbit game play sucks but he likes it because aesthetics??? Spending most of the war in the north video fangasming about a eagle??
-Prince of Persia.
Completely neglecting talking about the importance of traps and him loving 2008 no die addition.
Doesn't even mention the dahaka chases in warrior within?

Insert Title Here Strap Yourselves In I helped put crap in Monomyth
after much deliberation, i've come to the conclusion that Ross Scott and Warlockracy have the best video game essay videos

sseth isn't bad, but i feel like defaulting to internet-based humor is shallow and takes less effort than talking about what makes a game either good or bad

He's alpha and omega, he's the first youtuber and will be last when this garbage pile of dubious entertainment turns into pile of ash covered in ads

Any videos or channels that go into the history of CRPGs and the industry would be appreciated. I can't seem to find enough.

Gut who makes retrospectives and reviews about stealth games. Covers more than just Thief and more than just PC but hasn't uploaded in a while.

Ross is probably the only YT guy who isn't autistic, a sex weirdo or both.
In his recent Mage Knight Apocalypse video he complained about both chainmail bikinis and anti-semitism. Decline!

Nice channel for coverage of 90s games, especially lesser known ones.

I also discovered Ghostcharm's channel only yesterday. Watched the video about the fallout villain.
Decent channel, it's been years since something good appeared on youtube.
