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 BR-channel. 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.

    Erm, Mortal Kombat is the best selling game of 2019 in the NPD so far, and the fastest selling title in the franchise. You didn't do much research, did you?

    The visibility of games can be secured if people and companies went back to games being traded on physical disks in shops in stead of only online. If you see the disk box in the shelves, you know it exists and can buy it.

    Thanks for talking about this! I may not be into severe "mature" content, like $3x or severe swearing, but I've noticed how overly-sensitive creators have become! They aren't able to be themselves, and it's having a negative affect on them. And in an age where many parents are letting their kids watch R-rated movies (once more, not something I'm okay with, but okay), it makes no sense to be so sensitive against such content.

    You actually can blame BR-channel a bit for this: the issue isn't that gaming is "fringe:" the issue is that there are "journalists" out there who feel threatened by new media who routinely write smear pieces attacking BR-channel directly for gaming content that - all things considered - isn't really that bad. For example, Ian Sherr from CNET recently wrote about how there are BR-channelrs who make gaming content who get angry in their videos and ads appear on this content, which is bad for some reason. Seriously, he cited Jim Sterling, who does some rather good research for many of his videos, as one of the "problem" creators. He also directly contacted some of the advertisers and used leading questions into scaring them into withdrawing their ads from BR-channel. This has happened many times in the past, where predatory "journalism" will attack BR-channel directly for the content its creators make, and BR-channel always makes the wrong call: rather than saying that this is a platform where people can just put up the content they like and BR-channel is in no way responsible for said content as they are just the platform, BR-channel instead apologizes, demonetizes a bunch of creators - some of whom may deserve it, others of whom most definitely do not - and leaves itself open for the next attack. If BR-channel would stop caving, if it would stand up and say that enough is enough and they're not going to be held accountable for content on their platform that falls within legal use, then many creators, gaming creators included, would be in a much less precarious position. BR-channel is one of the biggest advertising platforms in the world, so it's not like any advertiser with a solid head on their shoulders is ever going to pull out permanently: they always come back. BR-channel is more than capable of weathering the storm of smear pieces until people realize that there isn't actually anything of merit to what these "journalists" are saying. But in order for that to happen, BR-channel first needs to stand up for its creators and put its foot down. The problem is that it doesn't want to

    I can see where he's going with that he's definitely saying that there's a circular effect when it comes to certain games that are hugely popular especially when he mentions mortal Kombat 11 which I'm super wishing I had the money for even if it's $10 cheaper but like advertisers especially gaming advertisers should be like flocking to BR-channel cuz what better way to get your newest hardest game to the general public then throug BR-channel would just blow it up look at Minecraft in fortnite

    At this point, I think it would be better if BR-channel made a whole new website just for kids. Since they would be making it for the ground up they could make sure that every video and BR-channel channel that goes on to it is kid friendly, which would make BR-channel only for adults and their new website brand safe for adds.

    The only thing I've heard about the Mortal Kombat franchise in recent months is that the people who have been working on the fataities have actually developed PTSD because of how much they were forced to expose themselves to gore and violence on their computers and the company that made the game being completely unsympathetic towards them, only caring about their bottom-line. One of them admitted that they can't look at their dog anymore without seeing nothing but gore and organs and blood, and it made me really sad. No game is worth that level of psychological damage. On the other hand, I am very unhappy with this recent cracking-down on what can be viewed on the Internet. I do want people to be safe, but I also want people to be able to make money doing what they like to do and have easily accessible platforms to do those things. On other platforms, like Tumblr, "adult content" really just meant "queer content," and so stuff like this is worrying because who actually gets to decide what counts as "suggestive content" and can those people deciding those things be trusted?

A little bit of earned media right there!) and expand. They wouldn't need to terminate nor abandon their BR-channel account. As someone who aspires to develop and release a game (or a book) this video has been very informative. Thanks, Matt!

    simple solution to the problem, make age restrictions on the video's. There has to be a way to do it mabye it's simple as putting in your date of birth or parental control settings. There has to be some precaution they can put in place other than demonitizing a video because it has some blood. They don't seem to have a problem with advertisment on video games where the 3rd wird is ****.

A " Oh we won't demonetize your videos on Doompunk Dogs 11 if you play it through stadia. We green light our stadia creators." situation. I mean it's a thought as to why those super violent games would be the flagship for stadia and the neat BR-channel integration?/compatibility?/something.
