Game Theory: YouTube is Ruining Gaming!

Jeux vidéo et autres

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 FRdownload. 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 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.

    So, people of the present. This is an old video, I gotta ask. Did anyone listen? This warning Mat-P gave to google. About youtube fighting against stadia. Did anything come about from this warning? Did any policies change when they were informed, did they acknowledge the threat they put themselves under? Is there ANY official statements made or changes discussed addressing the future of youtube in regards to stadia? I need to know, do the words of the informed just fall on only deaf ears and powerless nobodies like us? Cause if I'm being honest, this actually does scare me, but what scares me even more is if we find out that the answers to prevent this are right infront of them, right within reach but the people in power to use them just refuse to listen. That, that is the scariest trend of them all.

    I was starting to piece this together myself, asking questions like 'if youtube is limiting one of its greatest sources of viewing,and thus losing ad money from it, why isn't anyone doing anything about it?' And 'Google is trying to bypass youtube even though it owns it, by making all of their devices equivalent to a stationary gaming console.... but why don't they just reboot youtube and manage it themselves instead of using a faulty AI that is making EVERYONE (in the gaming community) suffer like this?' I'm no expert though, so ill leave the theorizing to you MatPat, (though like most people I would love to talk about some of this stuff, but eh, only way to do that is to become as famous as you lmao) anywho, I'm going to George Mason in Virginia for video game design, so this game designer is going to keep these brilliant things in mind when it comes down to creating worlds of wonder and imagination (and Easter eggs ;P )

    Great video... but (I don’t mean to be a jerk here), breath of the wild 2? Link’s Awakening? Super Mario Maker 2? Luigi’s Mansion 2? I know he mentioned that a few Nintendo titles are ok, but he didn’t mention any of these games! They’re huge! I know you guys might call me a Nintendo fanboy, and I’m okay with that, it’s my opinion and you can say anything about it.

    I'll give you mario maker 2 but lets not mix words here, everything else isn't out some the only people making videos on them to begin with are people reporting news. And the only people reporting THAT kind of news are offical game journalists (like IGN, kotaku, gamexplain and people like them) or nintendo focused channels (like spawnwave, BeatEmUps, WulfsDen, SwitchForce, NintendoLife and other obscurities). That makes most of them niche market coverage currently. Just as much as niche marketing as 2077's earned media. What sells a game is the talk going on around the game the week the game comes out and a few days before official release. You don't get that with most nintendo titles. If you wanna see what that looked like in the past, we can look at BotW 1 or Odassy where, if I am not mistaken, nintendo still had it's "only people officially partnered with nintendo game make upload videos/streams of them playing our games". So they weren't really covered back then. The ban was removed after the company had a passing of the torch where new management was put into place. Then smash bros came out. To that, it's an online only kind of game, so variety channels aren't gonna play that because, well, its a game where you have to hone your craft and variety channels dont have the time to hone it. It also didn't help at the time to modern day that the actual ONLINE of nintendo is just. . . REALLY bad with ping and lag or however you'd word it. Nintendo numbers are down because until mario maker 2, they had no variety channel friendly "BIG" games come out after they lifted the ban. To put it bluntly MatPat was right about nintendo being low for "earned media" around nintendo currently (except mario maker 2, but he has addressed that by saying a few games), however, currently only refers to the present. The future is an entirely different story. That much depends on the game, and the amount of content a variety channel can make from PLAYING the game (because just talking about it without showcasing it isn't what sells games the most). If BotW2 is anything like BotW1, it will be worth a few hours of video content per channel before they move on due to having nothing left to make videos on. Same with any LINIEAR story driven single player nintendo game (like LM4 and Links A remake). Earned media MOSTLY refers to keeping the subject relavent in the people but when talking about sales inpact, what matters most isn't just relevancy or interest, it's the inner child-like desire the video creates that makes the viewers inner child say "omg, that's so cool, I wanna try that!" By that I am referring to adults who have the wonder of a child based off what they saw in the content they watched. If you REALLY wanna talk numbers though and call matpat out on ANYTHING, lets talk about his bullshit statistics of youtube vs twitch. FRdownload has bigger numbers on surface level only. The only reason for that is view numbers overlap because it's a platform of archived content. 1 viewer of the platform can give 2 separate videos that were uploaded at the same time 1 view each, that means 2 views from one person. You can't get that number with twitch because everything there is live. You have to pick one, and leave every other person who is live at the time behind. That alone makes twitch have 1/10 the chance youtube has for viewer stats because you can't just view all the content on the platform, viewers bend to the streamers schedule, youtube does the opposite. Matpat is also clearly forgetting that youtubes numbers are a combination of owned, paid and earned media where twitch is just made of only earned media with a slight hint of paid media sprinkled in here and there. The "OWNED media" makes up a HUGE artificial chunk of those view numbers due to it being the official source. The numbers are bigger because it's bad formatting. It's like how on facebook when you scroll past a video in your feed, it auto plays so if you even watch it for 1 second because you were scrolling, that counts as a view. These are what's known as false inflated numbers. 1 view =/= 1 person, it equals less than that due to this inflation of overlapping audiences mixed with timeframes and viewing opportunity. 1 has inflation, 1 doesn't. Take that away and the numbers would look different.

    Instead of pumping out hyped new releases anymore companies should take the time to make timeless games to keep their originality and earned publicity. Consumers enjoy looking for something worthwhile anyway that will make long term memories instead of just receiving input from someone else and always accepting it.

    One of the biggest reasons you missed abour why FRdownload has more views than twitch is that streaming needs fast and good internet while on yourube you can offline download videos FOR FREE may i add in the countries that are known to have slow internet like Egypt and India twitch and dlive don't have that option and that is why i miss out on alot of my favourite creator's content like brendon urie cry and russ jenna and julien we simply dont have the internet that will allow us to watch such content so we settle for what we already have ans is catering to our needs

    I would like to point out something. FRdownload itself is for teenagers. Not for kindergarteners. FRdownload Kids exists for a reason. For KIDS to watch things that are directed towards them. Demonitization shouldn’t really exist in the sense of suggestive topics, videos, or thumbnails. That goes for violence and blood as well. I’m just gonna use End Game as an example here: End Game is a PG-13 movie. It’s directed at teenagers and up. It hecking starts out with Thanos’ head flying off and there is a lot of blood throughout the movie. Do they bother covering it up? Nah. Because this is directed at teenagers, not small children. I’m pretty sure that most teens probably say/heard/saw suggestive and violent actions. That shouldn’t be something for videos to get demonetized because of. This website is directed at TEENAGERS, not little 7-year-old Timmy. Timmy needs to keep us innocence and stay over on FRdownload Kids. That’s the end of my rant-

    I have a possible ssbu theory for you. We know that master hand and crazy hand are the kid’s hands. Galeem and Dharkon are the kids parents, and they take away the fighters, which are the kids toys. They scattered them around different rooms of the house and the kid has to work his way through all of them to get them all back.The rooms are the different worlds in the game. Please give me your thoughts on this theory.

    The game check video for mortal kombat 11 has 17 million views and can easily be search for so I don’t understand the point of that section of the video. There are dedicated channels like Super or UnCagedgames that almost 70% of their videos are on mortal kombat 11. As well as that the story is probably the best story that nether realm studios has ever produced period, anyone that says that the plot is bad needs a reality check. Just a side note, if you haven’t heard of mortal kombat 11 then stop get some help
