Youtube is personality driven, not quality driven. He isn’t paid to play video game, he’s paid to get people to watch him.
And people like seeing other people fuck up. And if your only issue is that he’s bad at games, you need to re-examine your priorities.
And if your issue is that he’s being paid by Youtube for the ad revenue… the gaming community (and the internet at large) really needs to get over this knee jerk reaction to people making money off the content they produce. People have bills to pay. If they can make money doing something they love and it costs you nothing to see that content, there is no issue here. At fucking all.
It is misplaced anger. It’s getting angry at the person making the content when you should be getting angry at yourself by feeding into his revenue by dragging other people into the mix. I didn’t click that link you gave me because that would do nothing but drag another person into his revenue stream.
A little while back someone was trying to convince me that PewDiePie was this awful person who is ruining gaming by making shouty Let’s Plays. So he handed me a bunch of the guy’s videos to prove he was right.
Now I’m subscribed to him because I love his energy in his presentation.
There’s room for everything, okay? There’s room for good game presenters to help people make informed purchases, for people to analyze gamer culture and the culture of the industry, and for just people making some Let’s Plays to entertain.
In short: We can have TotalBiscut, Moviebob, and all the crappy Let’s Players. And there’s even room for paranoid morons like Instig8ive Journalism. And if you don’t like what they make, you can just change the channel. That’s the wonderful thing about Youtube. You don’t have to watch content you don’t like.
Don’t pretend that someone making money off crappy Youtube videos is some horrible thing that needs to be fought against. You are wrong, and you are wasting your time.
how felt about making money on you tube in a nutshell. now please… let them get back to making money so they can live in shelter and not from a soup can.
