I do not understand why people dislike this man so
He calls his youtube page the Idea Channel for starters.
He's appealing to the unwashed masses

uwaaah... five or one???
I submitted this out of spite, five for evil kind of a thing. Can't say I'd blame you doing one, but usually I save that for when it's a terrible video presented in a attempted positive light.

yes, it is a moral choice. you are immoral for buying call of duty because by buying call of duty, you are lining the pockets of Bobby Kotick aka the antichrist. you are also laying down your hard earned cash (or your government autism bucks, which is everybody else's money you pizza shit) for a shitty video game, AND you are wasting your time when you could be playing a GOOD video game. (and you'd know what a good video game is if you weren't a pizza shit. checkmate)
if i find out that one of my employees plays call of duty, i am firing them on the spot.
at least play one of the battlefield games instead, if you're going to play a shooter.
also, in all seriousness, call of duty doesn't even have the guns depicted correctly. for example, if you put an optic on an in-game AR-15, it removes the entire gas block. of course, a rifle cannot function without its gas block.
You forgot all the DLC and microtransaction bullshit. I'm pretty sure all these other companies wouldn;t be trying DLC and way overpriced maps if CoD wasn't so successful at it.
What games would you recommend, zerdzer? I see you in a lot of game threads.
"Examples of good games would be: Diablo (not Diablo 2 or 3), Demon's Souls/Dark Souls, Planescape: Torment, Doom, Counter Strike, Battlefield 2, System Shock 1 and 2.
Examples of mediocre but not absolute shit (these games have some good stuff, but still could be way better): The Elder Scrolls series, Bioshock series, Diablo 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Final Fantasy series.
Examples of Bad Fucking Games: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (and any Call of Duty after 2), Diablo 3, World of Warcraft (pretty much any Activision game), Medal of Honor: Warfighter(and the reboot)."
quoting myself from the longass response i made on the defiance live action trailer video.
oh and i'd like to add Mass Effect and Dragon Age to mediocre games. and i'd like to add the rest of the mass effect series and dragon age 2 to a new category: crimes against humanity in the form of video games. there, the list is complete
I was about to freak out over ME and DA being on the good list until I read the end of that blip. ME2 didn't seem like absolute shit when I first played it, but a lot of things it just put off for ME3. That didn't bother me at the time, but once ME3 came out, suddenly 2 seems more like it was just trying to delay the inevitable.
There's no excuse for Dragon Age 2, no matter how you slice it.
5 stars for how screwy views on games are here. A game can come out and be a game lots of people (regulars, lurkers, etc..) comment on and say is good to really good. Mind you not great or masterpiece, but just good. Then all of a sudden the same game becomes mediocre or shit in the same peoples eyes several months later.
Ending aside, Mass Effect and the original Dragon Age isn't terrible or mediocre...now DA 2 you may have a point with, and I liked that game ffs and for that matter the direction FF started going after FF10 hit.
That said, the Elder Scrolls series is Mediocre now!? gtfo of here with that noise.
What's wrong with Dragon Age: Origins?
"That said, the Elder Scrolls series is Mediocre now!? gtfo of here with that noise."
yeah, the elder scrolls series was okay. most of what makes those games enjoyable to its fans are the mods. that should tell you a lot. bethesda was never very good at making video games.
what's wrong with dragon age? it's just not good. the gameplay is maybe 75% of what your average WRPG's gameplay used to be. it's very lacking in a lot of shit, and it's pretty dumbed down with the perk-esque system it had. the writing however, was just plain shoddy (not quite as awful as DA2 or other post-2007 bioware atrocities). in relation to most games these days, that's not too bad. but it's still not good, so it gets a "mediocre".
you guys should play Demon's Souls or Dark Souls, or at least play the Witcher(2). those will remind you of what an RPG is supposed to be.
DA Origins wasfun, Maru. 2 was absolute shit.
I posted this on POE a while back: http://poetv.com/video.php?vid=107192
It's an actual bioware panel where they discuss AMAZING IDEAS for Dragon Age 3 to a crowd of retarded fans who give them standing ovations for concept like "we won't reuse the same 4 areas the entire game for every mission." or the groundbreaking concept of letting you put equipment on party members. No, I'm serious.
I love love loved both Witcher games for all the choices and consequences they gave you, that was awesome. I fucking hate all those games like inFamous, Fable, or any bioware game where you have a paper thin 'good/evil' system that encourages you to, sometimes punishing you for not picking one side and sticking with it. Sorry little orphan, I really don't /want/ to make you watch me burn all your friends alive in your home, but at the beginning of the game, I chose to steal my starting gear rather than working to earn it, and I can't back down from my life decisions now.
"Every bioware game isn't like that! Mass Effect isn't all good and evil, you choosing between being a paragon and rene-"
Alright, I can tell you both dislike the genre, and, didn't play the game enough to have an actual opinion on what it does or doesn't do right. Substituting it with Dark Souls is dumb as hell since they're not remotely trying to be the same kind of game.

People raised on pure downloaded stupid have no concept that once upon a time children played with plastic guns that were faithful reproductions of actual guns. Before that, metal guns that were also faithful reproductions of actual guns. Hell, before that, kids used real guns to shoot at Indians.
But yeah, I can see how obvious fantasy is a threat to the world as hipsters know it.

Idea Channel - Is dunking this dork's head in a toilet a Good Idea?

YO rocketblender and anybody else that doesn't like this video. Why not? His premise is entirely true. If you don't want to support gun company's than buying a game that they profit from is putting money in their pocket therefor you support them.
Remember when Vice City came out and it had the official licensed names but then the greatest hits version just had generic names like "machine.gun?" Was that a royalties thing or what? Maybe that changed and now manufacturers get all royalties up front, thus making your purchase morally irrelevant since Colt already got paid.
I don't actually play shit like CoD, I just think this guy is a massively pretentious asshat and should get back to serving at Starbucks.
