Their videos are about as thought provoking as a Nick Jr. cartoon. Its nothing more than just naive and overly idealistic crap on how gaming can be an "artform". But its just a bunch of hipsters rambling about a bunch of inane crap that no one gives a crap about. They are also very mainstream, that they are comprised of nothing but call of duty fanboys.

Watch this video to see what I mean:

I can't take anything from these guys seriously after watching that vid. Battlefield a COD clone? LOLOLOLOLOL! The ExtraCreditz guys are a bunch of consolefags in disguise.

Does anyone else think they're pretentious hipsters?

EDIT: Let me make this clear. I don't hate consoles when I mean "consolefags". I just hate console fanboys.

Wrong.

Regardless of any merit this discussion may have, I feel it's already been invalidated by the use of the phrases

consolefags

and

pretentious hipsters

Hey, I don't hate consoles. I just hate those who shit on PC games due to their fanboyish love of their consoles.

Am I the only person who doesn't like pancakes? They are about as delicious as a butt. Pancakes are just waffle clones LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Only hipsters and syrupfags eat pancakes.

It depends how thick you're talking here, I like them thinner so I can eat more of them, and lemon juice man, loooooots of lemon juice!

My grandma makes them in a pan in a special way and the sides are crispy, and they are thick and greasy as shit, but I swear, you've never tasted anything like it.

Yes, you are the only person who ever existed that does not like ExtraCreditz.

#15 Edited by Tennmuerti (8099 posts) -
  • you're never the only one
  • plenty of people dislike Extra Credits, including me (for different reasons)
  • the way your post is worded/presented is appalling and you will get nothing but shit for it, thus preventing any actual discussion of value

#16 Posted by CornBREDX (5255 posts) -

I think you could have used better wording for a more intelligent discussion starter (as someone else said, and I agree, the moment you use words like "consolefags" and "pretentious hipsters" you invalidate your points and start looking like a troll- i also find these terms offensive); however, I don't like extracreditz either.  
That being said, this doesn't make their opinions invalid. They are just not opinions I agree with.

I've haven't had pancakes since 1997. Are they worth trying to get into again? Has the pancake scene evolved much since then?

Pancakes always taste far too..."eggy" for me. Waffles are far superior.

the words you used - especially the former - invalidate any credibility your post might've had, though.

just choose your words more carefully and don't use epithets in your rage posts. also the "Am I the only one who x" headline is heavily frowned upon...

They have a few great episodes. After the move to Penny Arcade, I definitely stopped watching. Not for any particularly good reason, either, as that's a way better website and way better video player.

Indeed.  Pitched up voices, lazy animation and even lazier attacks are shitty and do nothing good for anyone.  Extracreditz zuckz azz.  I'm really disappointed that many people can't tell when they're being trolled these days.  Professionally trolled.
 
I will say on the pancake issue I'm much more of a French Toast sorta guy, specifically Brioche French Toast.

I like most of their episodes but some I totally disagree with. I don't watch them every week anymore.

#30 Posted by pw2566ch (480 posts) -

Despite the crappy internet words you use (consolefags? Really?), anyone that says Battlefield is just another CoD clone is either trying to start an argument on purpose or they're just trying to gain a bad reputation. People that don't understand that Battlefield and Call of Duty are two separate, besides them being in the same genre, do not deserve any attention at all.

#33 Posted by gelatinabomination (184 posts) -

@jamian9210: I'm not entirely sure. Maybe it had something to do with your use of the word "fag", which is generally frowned upon in many cultures.

#34 Posted by Lucien_Lachance (209 posts) -

I can see why someone would think Extra Credits is pretentious and overly optimistic, but optimism isn't bad. If you want cynicism and bad news, go to just about any other video game website (even GB has its moments).

Stonewall Kitchen sells this fuckin' incredible pancake mix. It's like an orgy in your mouth. Sometimes I sprinkle it on steak because it's just that good.

Also, Extra Credits is a great show and you sound like a loser.

Whatever! Go back to play your shitty console FPS Halo. I'll be playing superior FPSs on the PC.

And no I'm not saying PC is a better than consoles. Its just that PC is a better platform for FPS games, where as Halo (along with other console shooters) are baby's first FPS.

I find this troll hilarious. He's like some sort of 14 year old, with no concept or wish for diversity, something ExtraCreditz try to promote.

Guess what, I have a video for you:

#39 Edited by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Extra Credits is pretty great. I don't watch every episode anymore but I check it each week to see if the topic sounds interesting. This week they have started something that interests me: Western and Japanese RPGs.
 
Also, it's not spelled with a "z" at the end of it anywhere but there YouTube channel username, for what I assume was the name was taken when they went to make the channel. Even in the video it has it spelled with an "s".

#40 Posted by Jayzilla (2561 posts) -

IDK what Extra creditz is. Also, why is the OP using the word "fag"?

Oh, how horrible! How dare them thar dirty casuals think that they can play vidjamagames with us 1337 hardcores! How am I supposed to feel special and unique when people keep casualing up the place!

@jamian9210: HAHAAHAH, you don't play nice? That's something a sosiopath would say. also, being nice has nothing to do with being naïve and weak. It's about being open to new impulses, and not forcing your oppinion on others. It's why respect for others oppinions is important, because showing your understand their position makes room for discussion and influx of new ideas. That's how the world works, and if you just get anal about your own oppinions and never take what others say as something you can learn from, just because you disagree with them on one single point, then you will stay an ignorant fool.

Tis your own choice.

Who said I liked it? I played it, it's an ok game, flashy with a somewhat convoluded and cheesey story, wrapped around some mediocre characters.

And yepp, I spelled it wrong. Is semantics really going to disprove my point? I highly doubt that.
