    @xbob42: Well actually there's none of that, they're just really funny videos. Which is why I go to this site in the first place, to be entertained.

    This comments section is turning into a weird echo chamber where people are voicing valid criticism and others are using it as an excuse to hate on Dan for whatever reason and it's a real bummer.

    People really like that Metro game, huh?

    MetroGate will go down in the history books as one of Giant Bomb's greatest scandals: The day Dan Ryckert didn't like a video game.

    Is there an anime that makes even diehard anime fans go "That's fucking dumb as shit" because that's probably the anime for Dan.

    I can imagine the entire crew going "People are going to hate this" and high-fiving before clicking the upload button.

    Dan's dad would probably love this game.

    @ghostiet: Or you're unlucky enough to get a front row seat at the cinema. I literally needed to turn my head to read the subtitles when that happened.

    The Stalker series doesn't have those "Idiot mechanics" but it's still somehow even slower paced than Metro. I wonder what Dan would think of those games.

    I love how "Shades of Zayn/Cesaro!" is a thing the NXT announcers say now, because those matches were some of the best. Those two guys and really the insane work rate that the new NXT brought is what...

    Isn't grinding faction rep one of the worst things about MMOs? It's weird they made it such a noticeable part of the game. Like it's not a natural progression, just here's this number you need to incr...

    Yeah Sin Cara 2.0 isn't as graceful as the original, but he's also got about 30 lbs on him too. I think it's better to think of Kalisto as the Sin Cara 1.0/Rey Mysterio(because he's a tiny, tiny man) ...
