Game Theory: YouTube is Ruining Gaming!

  • Published on Jun 23, 2019
  • SUBSCRIBE for More Theories! ►
    So E3 just happened and it got me thinking a lot about which of the announced games will be the next big game here on RU-clip. The answer? None of them. You see, none of these games will be able to do what Minecraft and Fortnite have done on the platform. Not internet darling Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077, not Deathloop, or any other game. You see, despite the coming launch of Google Stadia, they have built a platform that will not support it. Sit back and hold your favorite game close, Loyal Theorists, the future isn't looking bright.

    Remember when RU-clip was about people making videos because they wanted too and not for profit? If creators were more concerned with their content instead of their profit margins then this wouldn't be a problem.

    Real Gamers will look up what they want to see no matter how obscure or hidden it is, this logic only applies to the people that only care bout "trends". I've never watched a single minecraft or fortnite video cause I look up what I want to see not what others want me to watch.

    Mortal Kombat 11 failed cause it sucks, the story ruins everything that the series has built up till this point, its garbage.

    Employee: um sir.. We have been informed that a RU-clip by the name Matpat has escalated knowledge of plan RatedE3. Our cover is blown
    Nintendo CEO: No matter...

    *slowly turns around in a dark mahogany leather swivel chair while meticulously stroking a Chihuahua*
    Employee: W-wha---President...Reggie....Why are you here? I thought you retired a 2 months ago. And President Bowser...Where is he?
    Reggie: I'm sorry but.. that's not within my prerogative to do disclose that information.
    Employee: But sir there is a RU-clip Muckraker publishing video that could potentially plunge our stocks into abyss . I need to speak to President Bowser immediately and te---
    Reggie: while the current COO is out of office I will be his stand-in of sorts. All company predicaments will be handled under my maintenance.
    employee: with all due respect sir, I don't think I understand.
    Reggie: well what's there not to understand?
    Employee: President Bowser was in office this morning yet your saying he's taken leave
    Reggie: Will not "leave" per-se but as I may know Mr.Bowser is a very busy man........

    RU-clip should allow it's creators to pick and choose the companies their videos advertise, so creators can pick advertisers who support their content
    Because it seems unfair companies can pick which creators they support but creators can't do the same.
    Or game companies should support the creators who support them, by running their ads more exclusively on gaming content, so they're not losing the free press and the creators can still make revenue from the views.

    Is it wrong that I find it funny that stuff is supposed to be censored for kids is pointless cause a lot of kids these days say so many things that are so much worse than what I would have said at 9 - 13?
    Also, youtube has been screwing with my 'suggested videos' lately as well. I watched one video about anything outside of what I normally watch and bam, my entire thing is full of those videos. Ex: I watched one video that was someone playing a Vr game and all of a sudden nothing but those videos were on the side. I had been listening to music all day. Tf? I later go to watch a channel I subscribed to but just hadnt visited in a while and there were no videos next on the side of what I just watched except for something related to the channel but wasnt similar to what I watched...
    I don't know if this is just a gaming thing or what but I doubt it. I was watching experiments and stuff and some of that didn't show up at all either. Same with music.
