    game essays can be decent background noise but most of the time they come off as pretentious. it's pretty funny when someone dumps hours into an essay and they say something completely asinine. like hat guy who recently made a 10 HOUR analysis of Persona 4 and decided that Naoto was non-binary. how can you spend so long with a game and confidently say something so blatantly, objectively incorrect?

        I still remember when he ditched his previous series and started the infinite review. I'm glad he came back I was worried he was just going to pack it in. He never got the numbers he should have I think it's got to be americans getting filtered by the accent and dry humor.

          So? There are no shortage of youtubers talking about whatever game you want to hear about. People watch Tim for Tim, that's why they'll watch him talk for hours about a game they previously weren't interested in.

      This is gonna get me hatemail, but despite totally seeing the flaws and way WAY too length of Joseph Anderson.
      His video on the first Dragon's Dogma really dug down why i found it such a fricking frustrating game that I didn't know if I really enjoyed it or not and sort of confirmed I wasn't schizophrenic. While I can see the love that game gets, I don't understand the lack of apprent frustration with it either.

              It’s cool, it’s literary. He’s literally the only good video game essayist because he knows what an essay is. He’s not just making a six hour video about games. He’s making videos about life (and not in a gay way like Hbomb)

                It's one thing to get facts wrong, but it's whole different thing to purposefully spreading false information that you know it's wrong
                It doesn't make your more content more interesting, it just makes it way less credible

          I can't comprehend how hard it is to make his videos since Tokimeki Memorial. His videos have some very dense parts and have been at least six hours since then.
          Hell, for his Bokunatsu review he flew to Kansas twice.
          He said in one of his reviews that he intended to take time off from making the videos to just fly around the world mass interviewing people for future videos, so he may be doing that in some function. I like his videos so much that I don't really care how long they take him to make, and we know that he makes multiple simultaneously.

          I don't get this at all. His older videos are bad maybe but in the past few years his videos have had a lot in common with the best parts of MM videos:

          >videos have a clear focus
          >tightly written scripts
          >good flow of topics
          >only talks about games when he has interesting things to say
          >willing to cover obscure/niche games rather than always going for views

          Just look at this for example:

            Really though, nobody who makes more than a few videos with a decent amount of views does it because they like what they are talking about anymore, it probably started that way but once they find a monetizable audience who has expectations, and aren't a bored 17 year old anymore who can afford to do things like this that don't make money, it becomes a brand fast.

            I don't know if you're still here, but whatever... For a video on YouTube and a video posted here, I rather enjoyed it. I like how it's presented, your voice, and I like how you're making the video for people that PLAYED the game rather than following what I've seen a lot of guys do, which is basically make the entire video a borderline story recap.

            I don't know if you want advice or whatever, but I'm GIVING it anyway.
            One thing I'd suggest for this video was maybe rearranging where segments go where. I get that you (likely) didn't want to get through all the story stuff too quickly, which was why you decided to break up week 2 and week 3 with the combat discussion.
            However, I think even after that, the story stuff gets done too quickly (by halfway through the video it's already done). I think it's an unfortunate thing because the last couple of minutes where you talked about its theming as a video game is really good but it kinda gets lost when the story stuff already got covered halfway through the video, and until the ending, it's just you going over post-game stuff/mingle mode. Which is important in its own right theming-wise, but I think if you spread those segments EVEN more in-between the brief-ish/digestible week summaries THEN concluded the story/character discussion closer to the theming part it would've been more impactful.
            Also i might add that, yeah mingle mode and the shutdown exp gain thing are pretty cool devices relating to the theming of twewy as a GAME but even after all of that, it doesn't get more clearer with its theme than nekus character and the whole twewy story.

            but other that smallish note, GOOD vid dude. I Wouldnt mind watching another review like this.,

            • 3 weeks ago
              Anonymous

              I appreciate the advice. When I originally wrote the script it didn't even have the plot summary, but I ultimately decided to add it. I think it makes it easier to follow character development and how the story presents itself (for example being able to point out how Neku starts being tolerated by Shiki, having to tolerate Joshua, and finally being equals with Beat). But I do agree the pacing is amateur (because I am an amateur) and my biggest regret with the video is that the viewer has to get through 2/3 of it to get to the best part and the overall takeaway. I wish I went full deep dive into Mingle and Shutdown PP when I first mentioned them instead of saving it all for the end, for instance. Going into it I knew I didn't have the video making chops to make the video I wanted to make, but I also knew that if I didn't make this video, I wouldn't make any video. Frankly, I hate video editing, so I'd only do it to put out something I'm really passionate about.

              Thanks for the advice, I really do appreciate that you cared enough to give it.

      It's great because it could be two hours of GAME BAD over and over but it's an entirely fair review where he goes over the shortcomings and talks about the ideas that he liked even if they were executed like shit and brings up examples, like menu design, where the game could be improved. Also funny. Helps that he doesn't give a shit about monetization and just does videos whenever the frick he feels like it.

      The only glaringly obvious one I remember was the story about the fate of the psycho kid he was friends with. In his ff6 review he says the dude grew up, married and had kids, but I think in his DOOM review he just states he doesn't know what happened to him.

          "Brevity is the soul of wit" is more fitting for Joseph's style of analysis because the original quote is meant to be ironic. The character who said the quote, Polonius, vomits so much purple prose the people sitting in the front row tend to bring umbrellas.

      He's completely right about the Black person word part. Infinite's racism subplot is really tame compared to shit that happened IRL in the 1920s and 30s. If you try to do this politically correct nonsense and have "soft" racism, it comes off as corporate, sterile, and preachy.

        What you neglected to mention, and what's personally my favorite part, is that all these politically correct portrayals of historical racism make those times look less racist than they actually were. Assuming someone five hundred years in the future plays Infinite with zero context behind what actually happened in that time period, they might even come away from it thinking "oh so they made black and Irish people do all the crap jobs, that's not too bad."

          It's great but the best part about his channel is that he has multiple other videos that are better. His Cowboy Bebop video got me to rewatch the show and I'm very glad I did. Hadn't watched it in over a decade and it is so much better as an adult than it was as a teenager.

      Yeah, he's definitely the best on youtube overall, although his style focuses more on sensory impressions and mood reading of subtle details and scenes in games. It's great. In fact, I think all of the best video essayists focus more on a specific line/style of analysis. All the shitty ones just do a basic b***h review format or plot summaries.

        I enjoy his focus on positivity and he has a style that's so unquie and cool while being so clear in its inspirations
        he's also pretty funny and has a way of speaking I enjoy
        I also tend to avoid essayists that essentially just do school style reports on games, I like opinion and interpretation of art informed by the facts, just the facts is boring, I get get those myself.

      Love Ross's videos, but the guy has a bit of an absent-minded streak that can make him hard to watch at times. Like how he disliked the original Deus Ex's endings seemingly because they didn't spell out the implications for him. Or how he thought Outrun was hard because he couldn't seem to figure out how to use the breaks or read traffic. Maybe the mold really did do a number to his brain...

Only shallow normalgay content gets millions of subscribers. I mean, look at this shit: https://socialbook.io/youtube-channel-rank/top-100-gaming-youtubers

                I enjoy videos made by spergs because they tend to be knowledgeable in their chosen subject, hyper detailed and long, but I'm probably an undiagnosed autistic myself.

                Yeah I know, you're taking my words too literally. I think realistically he should be getting 10k or more views on his videos. He's not making videos on really niche stuff even, it's games like Lisa and Splatoon and topics like video game plot twists. That stuff should appeal to more than 200 people especially with how high quality his editing is. Maybe the youtube algorithm or whatever just really hates him. Anyway thanks for giving him a shot.

    I prefer the kind of video that goes "hey look at this cool thing you might like!" Rather than "analysis"

    Very niche but I haven't found anyone else talking about this game and some of his takes are very good. Is in spanish but has subs.
