Game Theory: YouTube is Ruining Gaming!

  • 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.

    I never thought of this... Holy cow. Each time you see a lot of stuff on RU-clip, I just realized that you never really see much of... anything that hits above PG-13. At all. Literally everything else is kinda not supported, you can’t monetize it, and here’s a little kicker; I’ve noticed that OTHER groupings and fads cycle around this.
    I’m gonna talk about my little sister’s Gacha vids here. You see so much crap in what is a “kids” video that honestly can’t be for much more than mid-teens or above. As in domestic abuse, or even kinda promoting drug use and single personalities (what I think some call a Barbie effect)... And yet, often enough some of this crap gets on the Kids RU-clip.
    MatPat, you too also can’t be found on this. I borrowed her tablet to check, just after seeing this, and even minor things launch the entire vid completely off of the Kids. Thing is, think about today’s cultures, we have 12 year olds dominating the Call of Duty franchises, and yet we won’t allow these same kids to see anything but Minecraft?

      Cont. again
      With huge titans like that, RU-clip is playing chess with only one strategy to do, and when it breaks they ignore the loss and keep doing it, even once we all get bored with playing against it.
      The bigger thing is that this chokes out a lot of creativity for other genres. For example, take games like Mortal Kombat 11, as mentioned. Who really even knew about it? What kills popularity as well is monopolization. In essence, this was a basic pop list: Does it have 100 people? No. Is it cartoony? No. Get out.
      I have personally hated it when RU-clip has such heavy focii to only one thing or type.
      I’ll take advice if I didn’t phrase this right in parts. And this isn’t a boycott rally versus RU-clip and Fortnight (Gah!), it’s a warning sign... Take the warning as you will.

      So if this is the crap we can let these kids play, one of two things have to cut, and fast. Honestly, RU-clip is also giving that “Ooh ooh it’s taboo gimme it!!!” by cutting this. They are indirectly SUPPORTING it by being overly “proactive”. We need to cut some of this “restraint” that the ‘Tube has, or we need to start really upping our game to prevent younger audiences from being lenient about this stuff. Also, groups like Fortnight (Fortenight?) are totally unremovable from any seat of power.

    You should change your name to The Game Hypothesists, a theory is something that has been proven and peer-reviewed to be true after all ;) So "Just a theory" is pretty great, "Just a hypothesis" is where you have an idea about how something works you actually want criticism on to find possible issues with. A very picky comment since we know what you mean, but considering all the anti-science nowadays it might be helpful for a channel as respected as yours to shine some light on "due scientific process" and how mankind generates what we consider to be facts :)

    What I find baffling is that mature content IS a thing. It's quite a popular thing and I happen to know that there are plenty of fairly large advertisers that even rely on more mature content. So why then is RU-clip taking an anti maturity stance? It's absolutely bizarre that creators have to rely on Patreon when RU-clip could be connecting them with these more open-minded advertisers and making a ton of money in the process. Not to mention helping their platform grow instead of crippling it, which is kinda what they're doing atm. It's like saying "Don't pick up the pennies. They're not worth the time." except that there's $3 billion worth of pennies laying on the floor x_x

    RU-clip is NOT KILLING GAMES. Ridiculous. The gaming industry is ruining games. The people speaking to the issues within the games are merely providing a service regarding content within the relevant games. Stay in your bubble and keep listening to your echo chamber. Games built in RU-clip?? Stupid. Never coming back. First and last time here. Fool me once, shame on you. Ignorant kids will swallow your tripe to their detriment. You’re dead to me

    I stood up after watching this video right now, got a glass of water and realized something. If gaming companies advertise on RU-clip their own games and put their ads in that all expanding territory, it means that their Games that are already mature get to gamers that watch gaming videos that are mature, and because advertisements are fueling the mature content again, the influencers can get money for showing off mature games, and it becomes a look of them putting an investment into the community that then promotes their products for free anyways. I keep getting random ads for stuff I don't care about, what if most of, if not all gaming videos had ads for more games that you could buy? Hell I found some games like Bloodlines 2 THROUGH RU-clip ads. This could work!

    I mean granted the graphics are more realistic now but I played Doom as a little kid, just like my siblings, and our parents were also always told that we were well behaved and polite. How come? Because despite being exposed to “mature content” our parents also actually parented, didn’t just use the TV as a babysitter so they could do whatever they wanted to do, since having children is a responsibility. We were also told to play outside, weather didn’t matter, they make clothes for different types of weather. Oh yeah, we also played Duke Nukem which is also not considered appropriate at the ages we were, but my old favourites were Warcraft and Civilization, with a little bit of Command & Conquer on the side.
