Game Theory: YouTube is Ruining Gaming!

  • Published on Jun 23, 2019
  • 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 TheXvid. 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.

    Gamers did this to themselves. We, by and large, allowed racists, rapists, and violence to define our hobby. Once we decided the correct course of action was MAKING 26 MINUTE ESSAYS WHINING ABOUT TheXvid rather than telling PewDiePie, ProJared, JonTron and others to hit the bricks, we chose to be second-class citizens and we lost our right to complain about it.

    Soooo.. I heard that article 13 has taken place... So I'm wondering, is earned media still possible when article 13 is in place?? Cuz people can't make videos with music, audio or whatsoever UNLESS they have copyright. Besides, TheXvid also earns money from earned profit, so why in d world did they do this...?
    And there's TheXvid Gaming...
    And TheXvid Kids...
    What's next? TheXvid Politics? Then what is d purpose of d main TheXvid...?

    I think I got what he said, but... Is that why I feel like content on youtube is less interesting than before since 2019. Ever since January 2019, I felt like there weren't that many interesting videos... They are harder to find and they don't come out as often... Maybe it's unrelated and it's just me or the content creators I like, but could it be because of what you talked about?

  • Pandakidd0

    Is this why PewDiePie played Minecraft for the past couple of weeks? Was it because the incoming games will surely be demonitized by TheXvid?
    Pretty smart move I would say. Loved the content still.

    Kids bring in the revenue. That's why almost every hollywood movie for the past few years has been dumbedd-down up to a point that a 5 year old can understand it. That's why the simplest games with cartoonish graphics become the most famous and that's why TheXvid's trending tab is always garbage that only a kid can watch and enjoy.

    I never thought of this... Holy cow. Each time you see a lot of stuff on TheXvid, I just realized that you never really see much of... anything that hits above PG-13. At all. Literally everything else is kinda not supported, you can’t monetize it, and here’s a little kicker; I’ve noticed that OTHER groupings and fads cycle around this.
    I’m gonna talk about my little sister’s Gacha vids here. You see so much crap in what is a “kids” video that honestly can’t be for much more than mid-teens or above. As in domestic abuse, or even kinda promoting drug use and single personalities (what I think some call a Barbie effect)... And yet, often enough some of this crap gets on the Kids TheXvid.
    MatPat, you too also can’t be found on this. I borrowed her tablet to check, just after seeing this, and even minor things launch the entire vid completely off of the Kids. Thing is, think about today’s cultures, we have 12 year olds dominating the Call of Duty franchises, and yet we won’t allow these same kids to see anything but Minecraft?

    • Gabriel Ruiz
      Gabriel Ruiz 2 days ago

      Cont. again
      With huge titans like that, TheXvid is playing chess with only one strategy to do, and when it breaks they ignore the loss and keep doing it, even once we all get bored with playing against it.
      The bigger thing is that this chokes out a lot of creativity for other genres. For example, take games like Mortal Kombat 11, as mentioned. Who really even knew about it? What kills popularity as well is monopolization. In essence, this was a basic pop list: Does it have 100 people? No. Is it cartoony? No. Get out.
      I have personally hated it when TheXvid has such heavy focii to only one thing or type.
      I’ll take advice if I didn’t phrase this right in parts. And this isn’t a boycott rally versus TheXvid and Fortnight (Gah!), it’s a warning sign... Take the warning as you will.

    • Gabriel Ruiz

      So if this is the crap we can let these kids play, one of two things have to cut, and fast. Honestly, TheXvid is also giving that “Ooh ooh it’s taboo gimme it!!!” by cutting this. They are indirectly SUPPORTING it by being overly “proactive”. We need to cut some of this “restraint” that the ‘Tube has, or we need to start really upping our game to prevent younger audiences from being lenient about this stuff. Also, groups like Fortnight (Fortenight?) are totally unremovable from any seat of power.

    You should change your name to The Game Hypothesists, a theory is something that has been proven and peer-reviewed to be true after all ;) So "Just a theory" is pretty great, "Just a hypothesis" is where you have an idea about how something works you actually want criticism on to find possible issues with. A very picky comment since we know what you mean, but considering all the anti-science nowadays it might be helpful for a channel as respected as yours to shine some light on "due scientific process" and how mankind generates what we consider to be facts :)

    What I find baffling is that mature content IS a thing. It's quite a popular thing and I happen to know that there are plenty of fairly large advertisers that even rely on more mature content. So why then is TheXvid taking an anti maturity stance? It's absolutely bizarre that creators have to rely on Patreon when TheXvid could be connecting them with these more open-minded advertisers and making a ton of money in the process. Not to mention helping their platform grow instead of crippling it, which is kinda what they're doing atm. It's like saying "Don't pick up the pennies. They're not worth the time." except that there's $3 billion worth of pennies laying on the floor x_x
