I guess if you can call that fun. I checked out the VGCW stuff for the first time the last time it was streaming, and enjoyed all the nonsense happening in the game, but the whole time the chat was just parroting whatever was being said by the announcers or in the story scenes in ALL CAPS. Seeing 4,000 people all think they have anything interesting to add to the proceedings when they truly don't is just kind of a bummer. That's the internet though, I guess.
Everyone in the chat knows they don't have anything interesting to add to the proceedings. #EDUCATEDFEET IS TRENDING WORLDWIDE and 2FAST are not cogent, serious analysis of what's going on. That's not the point. The point is to yell stupid things in text along side 2 thousand other people yelling stupid things and laugh at how weird everything is getting. Having the whole chat yell BUZZ when they were first talking about another toy only to have the chat all yell OKAY NOT BUZZ when it wasn't a spaceman is the kind of stupid fun that the chat is for.
