Reviewing games

Posted 11-09-2014 at 06:55 PM by Job McYossie
So finally decided to actually do something on youtube that takes more than 15 minutes of work. I started a game review channels, because that area isn't totally over saturated even slightly. But whatever, I've wanted to do this for years and I finally said "that's it, I'm do this now."

Honestly? I'm surprised I got past first three seconds. Having a 17-second, unnecessary (ask yourself if anything you said there wasn't blatantly obvious) intro in 3:11 minutes long review. Also, I don't want to sound mean, but do you have a speech disorder of any sort? Or braces? If that's anything you can fix, you should definitely try to fix it.

To be honest, the title doesn't sound like the best choice as well.

"I'm do this now" is incorrect.

A bit. But I was just trying to be honest, so I have no regrets. I know I didn't do my best encouraging Job's new hobby, but in my eyes it'd end up worse if I just said that it's great even though I didn't really feel that.

Or you could have said nothing. It's just a Youtube video. You could have not been a cunt, and said nothing.

So, I watched it, and I was actually impressed. You did a good job editing it, and I liked that you didn't screech your disdain at the game, but instead used humor to show its failings. Varrok is a pig fucker. Don't listen to him.

Well I'm sorry that my "the intro is unnecessary" attitude didn't include constructive criticism

Varrok, I know you just want to help, but you really need to ask yourself why someone chose to share stuff before you start typing up a list of things you hate.

If someone wants critique, they'll usually ask for it. If in doubt, just keep quiet.

I don't think I've ever intentionally shit on something some kid made. Unless it was fan fiction.

But, yes. Point taken. Still. It just seemed unnecessarily mean, and tone deaf.

In a matter of fact, yes. And you immediately assumed that I was trying to be mean, when I wasn't. Listen, I don't know what your problem is, you folks might live in some fairy world where everybody thinks hours ahead before saying anything in fear of hurting some insecure guy, and I don't care, I'd rather stay away from it. I'm just saying what I thought when I first watched the video in the most neutral manner I can afford. I never said anything like "You're an idiot and go suck a dick" which could be considered mean. If you've got a problem with this, it's your problem, not mine. I'm clean, bye.

Oh, and

I can't think of any reason why he'd post it other than to listen to people's opinions about it. Again, I posted only what I thought about it, didn't try to be mean, and, again, if you guys have a problem with this, it's yours and yours only.

No one is that mad at you, Varrok. But keep in mind that we were a lot less mean to you than you were to Job, and you are this upset about it. Just, in the future, think about whether or not the person needs to have their feelings hurt. Some people come in here, and are just dumb asses, and fucking with them is very fun. But shitting on someone who is generally well adjusted, and just trying something new, is kind of, well, mean. It's just a kid, making a Youtube video. You can't hold some kid to some crazy high standard, and again, it's just a Youtube video.

We're not mad at you. We don't hate you now. Just consider whether the negativity is necessary, or even funny, before slamming someone with it.

Why doesn't OANST have my job? Is it because he's straight because that doesn't seem fair.

OANST gets much nicer, and lashes out less, the happier he is. I'm too controlled by my emotions to be a known quantity, though.

OANST also enjoys talking about himself in the third person.

Also, I don't want to actually be in charge of anything. I like sitting back and watching the chaos!

I think we should all just sit back and take a deep breath and direct our collective energies to solving the Ebola crisis or something equally relevant.

"It's not my problem I was a bit of a dick. It's you guys who have the problem!" is a rubbish argument, Varrok. I know you mean well but you really do lack any tact.
