I feel like this feature has two prime requirements for an eligible game:
1. It must have a degree of mastery, so that the viewers can see the arc over time.
2. It needs to have a fairly compact "loop". A good run of spelunky takes around 20 minutes. Issac can take an hour. Both are within the general hour stream time.
So, while Dwarf Fortress has a ridiculous amount of mastery, the loop is wayyyy longer. It would be like watching someone play Civ5.
I like the idea of XCOM Ironman Impossible. Not only is there shit to learn and each mission is perfectly doable in the time allotted, but it is also a really fun game to watch.
But, yeah it comes down to what Patrick wants to play.
It seems dumb to you because you haven't figured out the reason for it.
It feels like the writers had this concept, a world where humans were no longer at the top, replaced by these unintelligent giants. Then they had to decide how to make this feasible.
In their deliberations they decided that it was unfeasible that an intelligent race with access to gunpowder would be so utterly powerless, a theme they very much wanted to explore, against an unintelligent race. So they had to figure out how to technically make them killable, but it can't be too easy because they really want it to seem hopeless. A bonus if the method involved extreme heroics. And so, cutting out a piece of neck from the back.
I'm sure they will explain it, as well as the construction of this ridiculously huge fuck-off wall. But it will be hard for me to not just see them as contrivances.
Still I will probably keep watching and report back if it changes my mind.
The only long form anime/manga/thing I've enjoyed since I was 10 and reading Shonen Jump is Berserk.
AoT seemed to have similar grim sensibilities and grotesque, frightening enemies so I decided to give it a shot. I've finished 6 episodes and man... this is an anime.
I just can't get over some of the things that seemed to have utterly ingrained itself with in most anime. Just, main character yelling ridiculously whenever he gets upset about his goals, several times each episode. Stuff like that. I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about.
Also, titans only being killable by slicing off a piece of their neck is pretty dumb. Even dumber that they don't reveal that for several episodes.
