Yes, with the benefit of eleven years of Skyrim reviews and analysis videos to pull from.
Except he plays games he reviews. In case of The Elder Scrolls even more than once, to make sure he knows what he's talking about. He does bring up some reviews and analysis videos in his retrospectives (at least in Skyrim), but mostly to contrast with his points, which end up being very different (sometimes completely opposite). So I am not sure what you're trying to say here.Yes, with the benefit of eleven years of Skyrim reviews and analysis videos to pull from.
Several times in the video the narrator states something along the lines of "i watched all the other Skyrim esseys, and im surprised nobody talked about this" and goes on to talk about that. In fact, the format is specifically geared around reviewing not just the game, but the other video essays on the game.
I disagree with the runtime being an attempt to obscure something. If anything I do think it is meant to be comprehensive, since he writes everything from start to end. I would concede that making super long video is a way for him to promote himself (hence the name of the channel - PatricianTV). He also has PlebTV channel (for super short stuff, I think).I'm saying his video uses its impressive runtime to obscure the fact that it brings nothing new to the table. Possibly as a result of spending nearly 100 hours researching other people's content.

Everyone who says "You don't need x amount of time for this" never bothers to point out parts of the video that could be condensed, and never argues what the "correct" length of such a video would be.
