Why are Persona fans so dedicated, passionate, and intelligent? Not to mention so incredibly handsome?
i don't get why this is bad
Its 14 hours long. You could do a much better work with just 1 hour
He just summarizes the story plot point by plot point
Does he really? Surely he actually did some research using material outside the game. Production details, funding numbers, interviews, stuff like that?
I saw a chunk of it back when it was first being memed, the first hour and a bit was discussing the mythology that inspired the game.
No. This 14 hour video is actually lots of smaller essays put together into one video. His videos actually have some cool insights, details and goes into depth on a lot of the things that inspire Persona 4. For instance, I'd never know had I not watch his videos that the shrine in the city that inspired Inaba is related to Konohana Sakuya (Yukiko's Persona). Basically, a bunch of retards here love to complain about long essays. And while there are some cases that I can agree that are completely asinine, like the Ann character analysis for example, some long essays are actually good and interesting to watch,
every 3+ hour "essay" is essentially this, it's not surprising in the least
The original Morrowind one and the subsequent TES videos by that same guy were actually thorough and researched though
too lazy to check it out, i must fix my roof and new house instead
They're made for retards to fall asleep to, not to watch. The gay in the OP doesn't seem to realize this.
If you can't make a 5 minute video that's interesting, why would 10 hours of your ranting be worth anything? He's a basedboy combover gay and I know this without a doubt just from seeing his retarded face, why the FUCK would you EVER waste a second listening to him talk about this game
It's white noise for autists, like leaving The Simpsons or Friends in the background while doing something else. Nobody actually watches these >1 hour long videos, right?
Only ones I found interesting enough to finish were matthewmattosis's.
because who the fuck wants to watch some autist talk about an anime game for 14 hours
It's not bad, it's useless and ridiculous.
those sound bad
>The World at War is a 26-episode British documentary television series that chronicles the events of the Second World War. It was produced in 1973, at a cost of £900,000 (equivalent to £11,600,000 in 2021), the most expensive factual series ever produced. It was produced by Jeremy Isaacs, narrated by Laurence Olivier and included music composed by Carl Davis. The book, The World at War, published the same year, was written by Mark Arnold-Forster to accompany the TV series.
>The World at War attracted widespread acclaim and now it is regarded as a landmark in British television history. The series focused on a portrayal of the experience of the conflict: of how life and death throughout the war years affected soldiers, sailors and airmen, civilians, concentration camp inmates and other victims of the war.
It had 26 episodes with a runtime of 22 hours and 32 minutes. It discussed the most important events of the 20th century.
This Amish looking cunt spends 14 hours and a year of his life to talk about a computer game.
It got less than 200k views.
Not defending him but this is a retarded comparison. You can't really compare a tv series made in a studio with some autist making video at home by himself.
>a tv show about major historical event is more popular than a long video about a 15-year-old JRPG on YouTube
Wow no way
>22 hours to summarize the largest most important war in human history
>14 hours to summarize persona 4
i believe that was the point
Long does not equal good. Conciseness is a skill worth it’s weight in gold. Also he plastered his face on it for some reason
He plastered his face because that contributes positively for you in the youtube algorithm, retard.
how the fuck can you talk about Ann for 14 hours, I'm not giving the video a view. I'm assuming he goes through every single fucking line Ann has and makes it sound deep and meaningful when its not
a quick analysis
Something needs to be done about the autism problem.
She is not that interesting lmfao
does it never occur to these guys to split up a 3+ hour video into manageable chunks? or - let me guess - are the entire videos directionless rambling and there's nowhere to make logical cuts?
It's literally a compilation vid of a bunch of 20 minute videos
Can someone post a link to these vids?
look them up on an incognito tab, takes two seconds
15 hour "analysis" which is just them playing the game and pointing out shit
This isn't a analysis its just a lets play with a coat of paint called "pointing out my autism fanfic". Why make these if no one watches this gruel?
Man can anyone actually recommend a lets player that doesn’t suck ass at games, has an interest in the shit he plays and actually completes them without being horrendously annoying
are lets plays even a thing anymore?
they're slowly being phased out by stream highlight videos
fuck you're right. why does everyone have to be a streamer now?
surprised to see a lot of people have twitch accounts, sometimes I see random people stories on instagram saying they are going to stream and I'm like who the fuck gonna watch you girl
I wish they were, most of the lets players move to twitch and I don't wanna hear them talk to a chat I'm not reading or a see shitty donation messages, and most either suck ass at games and can't edit out the moments they're stuck and a bunch of other shit. The gaming content left on youtube is terrible video essays or like 20 minute one-offs
I think oneyplays is the only one left
I don't the game even has more than 2 hours of scenes with her in it.
>14 hours on one of the blandest Persona character
I refuse to believe that this is real.
Does he have same type of video but about Tae or Kawakami?
He put his ugly face in the video. It's as bad as tripfagging
and this is why you’re an unsuccessful waste of life
man 14 hours? I expect people to spend this long on an analysis of Dostoyevsky.
Even a movie like the pianist even that much hours is too much.
Here's a concise analysis of Dostoyevsky:
He was russian and very depressed, so he made books where the main charachters get cucked to cope with it
1. This dude made a 14 hour video about high schoolers, kinda sussy innit
2. He's fat fatty fatface
He didnt make a 14 hour video. He made many 10-20 minute videls over the course of a long period of time and compiled them into one for easy reference
What's the problem then
well, for comparison: the Ken Burns US civil war documentary is only 11 hours.
The immense amount of work and will for a personal project that revealed a deep meaning, which an embarrassed face tries to show.
>transfer student embroiled in murder mystery with anime high school kids that enter the tv to fight demons
>they summon demons to fight alongside them and eventually save the world
>you leave after a year, so none of your friendships wind up mattering
Done. Fuck your 15 fucking hours and shitty combover. Show your receding hairline like a man or wear a hat.
Well firstly, that comb over aint foolin anyone
It is not actually an analysis or retrospective. He literally summarizes the plot point by point with am extended vocabulary, which is why it's 14 hours long.
I hate shit like this. It's mind-numbing.
if it takes you 14 hours to explain the plot of a few hour long videogame you're doing something wrong with your life
someone liking and being passionate about something is cringe af
I despise video essayist and the coterie of mouth-breathing retards that watch them.
I just use to for background noise for games I'm curious about but know full well I'll never play. 4 hours is insane though, after like 20 mins you lose my attention.
Jesus, that's way worse.
I don't watch this shit, I look at them, laugh and imagine what kind of autism you'd have to have to even make something like this to begin with
This isn't a video essay, it's a bloated "this game saved my life" sort of blog. Don't confuse the two.
I don't think I've really seen many video essays if any that actually qualify as essays or even reviews
The visual distracts you from the fact that you would never read these if they were simply manuscripts
Given how the format has become so popular on YT, there are many that do qualify as both.
I love video essays and will watch ones that interest me when Youtube recommends them
Guess what? You don't have my blessings to watch them. What now, fucker?
>I despise video essayis
They all have some form of autism and that's why they make essays
Is vanilla P4 the last time they even pretended Persona was an SMT thing?
there might've been the odd spin-off that used it, but yeah, P4G was the start of Persona being its own brand in the west
bro P5 gives you guns, makes the main enemies demons with negotiation, and the final boss is the demiurge complete with the elite 4 archangels fighting you as you make your way to his chamber. You fight Thor in an arena and Samael on the top floor of the Diet Building. And for old school persona homage, you literally play as good guy Masquerade as you fight NNWO while Yaldy manipulates both sides and does his best Nyarly impression as he gambles against Igor.
Persona 5 doesn't have Shin Megami Tensei in it's title that's what that anon meant not in general
Making friends in real life is more fun than playing Persona 4.
no it isn't
That was the point of P4, not that I Personally agree with it.
Didn't this guy get raped?
Do zoomers really watch videos longer than 5 minutes?
>muh background noise
Play some music you fucking fagget
I was born in 1996, I dunno which gen that is, but I don't watch them. I put them on my phone before I go to sleep and listening to them bores me very quickly and it puts me to sleep. There's some "Fallout 4 is actually good" video in my recommended that I noticed had the entire red bar full on youtube and I don't remember ever watching it and I would never watch it because Fallout 4 being good is an outright lie.
Okay obsidrone chud
he seems cute but i refuse to play persona because it'll remind me of high school and whenever i see high-school based escapism i want to kill myself because my high school was shit.
>because my high school was shit.
I second this 🙁
He told his barber to cut hisbhair like that. He paid for someone to style his hair like that, and when it was done, deemed it acceptible to walk in public looking like that.
>What you want senpai?
>I want everyone who looks at me to know I'm very self conscious at my hairline
>dedicated and passionate
>Royal still not cracked
Get a job
pi es faivu has no geimu?
he looks exactly like the type of low on testosterone fat fuck who'd like tranime garbage
I can't help but feel bad for guys with haircuts like this
They're desperately trying to hold on to their youth with that mid 2000s Zac Effron haircut but they're not fooling anyone, that hairline has already reached above the parietal lobe.
Its a combover, its literally a combover. Hes not trying to hold on to anything per say- other then the myth he has hair.
What is there to talk about?
>let me go over how each of the tarot cards fit with the characters that go with them in no particular order through the video
>let me explain japanese mythology so you understand how it matches with the story, even though I point out how not all of it actually works even though I say it's a perfect fit
>here's my podcast of talking to a music guy about how much we like the music
>let me read a plot synopsis slowly
so its not actually 14 hours of realanalysis? it's just glossing over the wikipedia overview section of everything in the game with a bunch of im so smart word salad?
No, do you think anyone posting about the video actually watched it?
It's a compilation of a bunch of smaller videos with a few extra bits thrown in.
No it's not like the patrician guy's TES reviews where he picks them apart and talks at length about the development of the game with sources and tries to analyse the design process, it's just 14 hours of summarizing things he liked about the game
>jerks off about a person wasting their time
>posted on Ganker
>Long does not equal good. Conciseness is a skill worth it’s weight in gold. Also he plastered his face on it for some reason
since none of you gays like to post properly
>The Last 5 Hours of the analysis are right here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FurOAnouf28
>14 hours about the worst modern Persona
Do P4fags really...?
He'd probably get more views if his ugly face wasn't on the thumbnail
I honestly don't think it matters. There's so many ugly people that do really well on these things.
I heard he's so stupid, he fell for the Naoto is trans meme
reminder that he has a hot gf and you have no gf
I am married
I played persona 4 when I was 19 and then moved on with my life
why do you keep making the same thread
how many times are you going to make this thread?
pretty sure a dude made a 20 hr Skyrim analysis recently after doing a 12 hr Oblivion and 9 hr Morrowind video
people can shite on about vidya all day and people will watch
>people can shite on about
Hate Todd all you want, but I genuinely think you can make 20hrs analysis of Skyrim unironically.
>shu nakajima is really underrated
>you see, he's stressed out because of tests, and his mom doesn't appreciate him. he ends up cheating, and realizes that was a bad idea and his mother learns to be there for him.
>this is some unique japanese concept i will spend half the video explaining
>i could easily summarize this in like five paragraphs but you bet your ass this is a 15 minute video
>>you see, he's stressed out because of tests, and his mom doesn't appreciate him. he ends up cheating, and realizes that was a bad idea and his mother learns to be there for him.
Does she fuck him to destress him? That's pretty Japanese.
I just thought he was underrated because not many players might relate to his problems. He was a lategame highlight for me, the birthday party was really sweet.
Didn't this guy lose weight and get a cute gf?
What the fuck do you call that hairstyle?
Who's autistic now?
What your excuse Ganker?
I'm gay and every cute guy I know transitioned into a... you know, a chud.
I'm married with children. Highly recommend both
Good for him.
Why the fuck hasn't she told him he'd look better with bangs? Its what he's going for but we men are fucking retarded and don't know this shit.
I've been so distracted by his brutal combover that I didn't even realize how terrible his shirt is in the thumbnail. fucking black and white lepaords with plants on one side and zebra stripes on the other, dudes on a colorblind safari
bro looks like a referee
>that comb over
>he stopped doing his comb over cope and wears a beanie now
She might be bpd af but that's still better than most bros
>just be tall
wow it's that easy
OH NO NOOOOOO IT'S NOT REAL
>inherited hair genes from my mother ensuring I will never go bald
>This is the most significant thing I have ever done
Footprints on the beach. Must be depressing being remembered for only this crap and for such a short time. Eventually, even the shitposters here will stop posting this thumbnail and all that will be left of this man is a punchline.
I'd rather just watch Joseph Anderson highlights.
>The longer the video the smarter I look
I hate this retarded trend so fucking much. If you can't consolidate everything you need to say into a manageable size then you have no business making essays, reviews or anything of the like. It's a skill to be concise and not ramble.
>look of utter resignation on face after making a 14 hour video on P4
It’s like a work of art
I only played persona 5 and I had fun but nothing in it was deep enough for 14 hours of analysis. How much different is persona 4?
it's even less deep
Its even more deep
Neither are worth 7 hours of analysis, much less 14 hours. You could "analyze" the entire series in less than 14 hours
Why are you so autistically obsessed that you have to post this weekly for months? At this point you are more pathetic than Hiding
Oh shit it’s him, so what’s next after this persona 4 vid
OP is either that guy advertising himself or one of his fans doing it, or someone who gets a kick of seeing people shit on him and his essay from Ganker. Either way, OP needs to fucking stop.
why would you doxx our hardworking Ganker janitors like this?
I say we quadruple their pay.
I would rather slam my hand in a car door than be forced to watch this.
But what if it was your penith
youtube is an outlet for autists
pls no bully
>Ganker continues to shill his video as if it's the only thing he's ever done
dude is mainly an anime youtuber, he spend the last year breaking this up into parts for his second channel, and now that it's finished he split it into two giant ass parts (second in unlisted).
why watch these if you can just watch or read the manga these videos are based on? None of these are 2deep4u in any sense. Death Note, School Live, Devilman, Punpun and ChainSaw Man arent 30 minute videos to see a simple message that explains itself when watching or reading
>the point of devilman crybaby
satan's eternal punishment?
>some dude thinks Persona 4 is god's gift to mankind and the greatest thing since sliced bread
>it's some guy who never played videogames and just watched anime all the time prior to P4 being localized
every fucking time
Hate to break it to you but P4 was localized 17 years ago.
Yeah and there are somehow people STILL acting like it's the greatest thing to ever happen in spite of it being a barebones P3 rehash and being replaced by P5
zoomers are mental ill
i tried watching this video, it seemed like he jacked the swagger of a tim rogers review but didnt understand what made tim rogers reviews so interesting
im convinced this guy is just low key shilling his own video right now
>vtards just shit and scream and insult a dude's appearance
at least he accomplished something, lonely gays
No one forced him to show his face on the internet.
no one forced you to emulate the bullies that bothered you in middle school but here we are on an autistic board about video games
Nah I’m doing that by choice gay
Not even your strawman but I don't think talking about a videogame for 14 hours is accomplishing something.
post face then; he knew what he was getting himself into by showing his face and that extreme combover that makes his head look like a wrapped pig in a blanket
What did he accomplish by putting thousands of hours into a 14 hour video game essay. I don't know how well youtube pays these days after the pewdipie incident but I'd assume he would have been better of wage slaving that year.
It's not about making money or not. He completed something he's proud of, that's something.
Do people actually watch this shit? How much of a loser do you have to be?
You have to be into fatlus games, so you have to be an actual loser, at least. How much is hard to measure due to how deep the rabbit hole goes.
I watched it when it came out and of course remember 0
Just background noise, actually memorable analysis has to be much more short form
he could have spent all that time losing weight
>he could have spent all that time losing wei- ACK!
why does losing weight suddenly make him age 20 years?
his insecurity about his hair becomes more and more transparent.
damn I kneel
the classic i see
I wish was fat at some point in my life so my legs would look bigger.
Just wear a weight vest bro
Be glad you weren't, I was fat, am super tall, and did rowing, and my legs are the size of a small redwood trunk and my thighs chafe constantly and painfully squeeze my balls whenever I walk with loose underwear (and tight underwear squeezes my balls painfully at all times so that's out too) although part of that is also just because my balls are also way too big.
I wonder if he views that video as his breaking or lowest point of his life lmao.
I bet I can make a better p4 review
>Westerners talking about anime/otaku media
>Intrinsic Japanese culture references going over their heads
>Japanese media references going over their heads
>Language-specific analogies going over their heads
>Entire analysis is based on a bad translation, making the whole thing a horrible game of telephone
>Entire analysis is based on western preconceptions which are often very different from what the original intention was
Youtube "critic" content of anime/otaku media is the lowest of the low you can find on that site. At least when people post shit on /a/ or Ganker they get called out instantly instead of going off for 2 hours.
Now that you mention it there's probably an unoccupied niche for a "lost in translation" YouTube channel, explaining significant differences in themes/story etc. in lengthy localized "otaku media"
Probably, but unless you are a person that has lived in Japan for most of your life you're not fitted to run such a channel.
...Did you watch the video? He goes a ton into all those aspects.
No, I didn't watch the 15 fucking hours video of some westerner talking about something he's inherently unable to comprehend by default. If were to watch a Persona analysis I'd want the person to have at least attended an actual Japanese high school.
Harsh but understandable, I wish I wasnt a western born pig, I feel completely alienated and disgusted when I have to interact with mutts beyond a superficial purely business like manner. Theyre crude, have shit taste, are often religious(mentally ill), and extremely narrow minded
Being a western otaku is being the most repressed class in history
>I spent a year making a fourteen-hour video about an anime video game
>this is the most significant thing I've ever done in my entire life
always remember anons, you might be a sad piece of shit, but at least you're not that guy
Hey now. I just might be. I've spent the past decade procrastinating hard on writing a novel, even taking a creative writing degree in the middle.
I've done the same but I gave up on the degree idea immediately when I realized college is a scam. I did get some useful feedback from peers in my community college course, but then again I could have just posted my shit online for the same feedback and gotten more honest criticism that way too.
Yeah... as much as I enjoyed university it was easily the biggest waste of time in my life, and just further killed my motivation to write. Shit, I was literally posting my stuff online for the same, if not better results like you said.
Yeah I got more feedback from just sharing my first chapter draft with my friends than I did working on it for an entire semester. All I got from my classmates was a lot of empty praise, a bunch of written critiques that said nothing (and half were in broken English) and the only real useful advice I got was "you infodumped too much about the setting at once, try to just focus on telling the story and add in worldbuilding more naturally" after my rough which was something I was already aware of and had been fixing for the second draft.
>always remember anons, you might be a sad piece of shit, but at least you're not that guy
Yeah most people aren't even that guy and never will be, what's your point?
It takes a lot of discipline to finish the script and grab footage to show off parts you’re taking about. Plus everybody needs a hobby, nothing wrong with hobbyists finishing something that huge. Honestly it’s pretty fucking difficult finishing things to a point where you can be happy enough with it. Granted im never ever going to watch the video to check if his points require the excessive amount of filibuster. But main point is good on him.
Holy fucking bloat.
damn, these people are fucking idiots, we need to bring bullying back
Ganker is an auto-bullying compliant engine. It resembles a convention of self suck. Understand the nuance.
You can't bully someone that's anonymous. If you think you can, you're probably a bitch ass fag that shouldn't be near a screen ever.
Its bullying in the sams way a mosh pit is “bullying” it’s not.
>now that i'm 30 years old and not bullied in school anymore, i want to bully kids 13+ years younger than me
yeah that's right, i posted a frog
>i want to bully kids 13+ years younger than me
Doesn't matter by who, just as long as they get it. All the shitty things in society we're seeing today is a direct result of the anti-bullying campaign from the 90s.
How did Youtube become nothing but 10 second videos (shorts) and 10 hour long analyses?
This unnecessarily long video game analysis trend has to be the most pathetic game of oneupmanship I've ever seen.
I'd be critical too of his wasteful effort, but I spent the last month just masturbating.
Not like I can judge.
>nearly 15 hours of video
is it a step by step walkthrough or something? jesus christ
Im going to be completely honest and sincere here, no shitposting.
If any of you think watching a dozen plus hour videogame comentary (not an "essay", those are mostly academical) you have undiagnosed autism and need help before you end like Chris chan
Search "Goku BETRAYED and TRAPPED" on Youtube
>spending 15 hours analyzing a fanfic
If you didn't play P4 in Japanese, you didn't play P4.
Ifinishedavideogame is the undisputed king of long form analysis.
It's no wonder why successful Youtubers all have girlfriends! After all, who could resist their dedication to creating amazing content, their passion for what they do, and the intelligence that it takes to be a success in this field? Plus let's not forget how incredibly handsome most of them are – it almost seems like they're babe magnets.
Wouldn't it be quicker to just play the whole game at this point?
He doesn't look very happy or proud of himself.
he probably still misses the point of the game too just like all of Twitter
Is this the video essay thread?
Any critiques welcome.
Go outside and have sex.
will watch more but so far too low energy
Is it worth a listen?
still waiting for a detailed tldr from the video
im sure some of you gays watched the whole thing
i opened it up and jumped to a random part a couple hours in he is just summarises what is happening at any point in the game.
Let me guess
>boringly retells the whole plot in detail in 7 hours
>spends 2 hours talking about game design principles and how the game perfectly fits them
>spends 1 hour talking about some interpersonal drama he had with the game
>spends 30 min on some shitty skit where he dresses up in a gay costume
>spends the rest of the time complaining about capitalism and saying how the game is a perfect representation of Marx's philosophy
nope, its your first point but 14 hours
the most significant thing hes ever done.. damn.
whats the most significant thing youve ever done?
made and published a good game on Steam and got half a house for it. fgm
I bet this guy shouts PERSONA! at random moments in his life.
His facial expression conveys that he is just becoming aware of how retarded it is to use an entire year on such a meaningless project, and he is about to reach for his wakizashi and commit swift sudoku.
