Why are people choosing Get Bent? Why did I put get bent as a possibility? Questions that have no answers.

#3 Edited by Creamypies (4059 posts) -

Personally... I watched every episode. But I can understand why people wouldn't wanna watch it. Especially if they don't like RPGs.
 
EDIT: OH! And I voted "Get Bent!"

#4 Posted by get2sammyb (6412 posts) -

I didn't watch it for a few reasons. Number one, even I wanted to I wouldn't have time. Number two, much as I like Jeff and Vinny I'd rather play the game myself than watch someone else play it. Number three, it all seemed kinda boring from what I saw of it.
 
Soz!

I don't have a problem with that, I was just intrigued. Are there any games you wouldn't mind watching?

Just not my style of game, had no interest.
#7 Posted by Nettacki (1317 posts) -

I don't have time and I'd rather play it myself, because I don't want to be spoiled the game until I play it.

I want an option,"i found out about it too far into The Endurance Run" to be able to catch up!

#9 Posted by Driadon (2997 posts) -

I watched the first...15 episodes? But that alone ate up way too much time. Over 150 would have been terrible for the lack of spare time I have.

I chose "Get Bent!" because the only other option would have been that I did watch the Endurance Run. And since choosing "Get Bent!" both lets you know that I (probably) watched the Endurance Run as well as letting me tell you off for starting another annoying topic about it, it seemed like the best choice.

Fair enough.

After reading this, I couldn't help but vote "Get Bent". Sorry, I know it was childish of me. Please don't hit me again. I'll be good this time, I promise.
 
I watched the ER and as to why I'm even in this thread it was to see why such a poll was created in the first place. Are you with GB's marketting division and trying to gauge what sort of things were holding potential viewers back from watching it so that you might be able to figure out some workarounds for future ERs? You sneaky marketing exec, you.
#13 Edited by PenguinDust (12483 posts) -

I picked "Other" because I wanted to play the game before I watched the video series.  I didn't want the ER to spoil anything I might encounter in the game as I played through it.  I watched one or two which made me decide to (eventually) purchase the game, but beyond that I've missed it.  I plan to go back and watch selected episodes now that I've completed the game, though.  I have nothing against watching P4 and plan to.

#14 Posted by Malchom (96 posts) -

I chose "Get bent", but I watched it... 
 
Chose that option because you made another annoying ER related poll post and I've concluded you must be one of those  GB  members who patronized Jeff and Ryan through the hole ER... That option was the only way for me to vent my frustration on you...

My lunches have been so empty without the Endurance Run. I miss you Charlie!

#16 Edited by Jeust (10538 posts) -

I didn't as it didn't cativate me all that much... 
 
I like to play a game, more than watching someone playing and talking about it... it kind of destroys my sense of emersion. 

#17 Posted by punkxblaze (2968 posts) -

I chose get bent because it made me giggle.

Because the option is much more attractive than any of the others... problems of the poll.
#19 Posted by DukeTogo (1504 posts) -

All of the above.*
 
* I don't like Vinnie, the others are great, but he's a moron who has no place in front of a camera or mic.

#20 Posted by deadly_polo (471 posts) -

To start with I didn't really care about Persona 4 (not being into RPG's), but after the acclaim I heard it getting I began watching. Unfortunately I just have far too little time to be watching an hour a day. 

#21 Posted by Najaf (295 posts) -
I watched an episode, but I was late to the party. I did not know what was going on, (episode sixty something) and I did not care to marathon all of them to catch up. I did go back and watch the first one, but the time needed was just daunting. I must admit, with a different title I might have been more keen on staying with.
#22 Posted by PureRok (4235 posts) -

I chose other.
 
I'm one of those people who get pissed off when people do stupid things, and they were making a lot of mistakes early on. Watching them play made me more angry than it did make me laugh.

#23 Posted by Gamer_152 (14065 posts) -

Putting that much time into watching a series of internet videos is a big commitment and although I did watch every episode of it myself I can see why it would have been just too much for some people.

I started watching because I was playing it...however I had to stop because my PS2 died. But now that i got a slim i will be playing the game and watching the endurance episodes!

#25 Posted by MattyFTM (14364 posts) -

While the ER was starting, I planned to play P4 at some point in the near future, so I didn't want to spoil it. I still haven't played it, and still hope to play it soon. I kinda wish I had just watched it and abandoned my plans to play it, because now I'm never going to watch the ER because its too damn long, and might not ever get around to playing it either.

Just not a fan of Persona 4.

#27 Posted by LeetBalla (697 posts) -

I watched episodes 1-50 something but quit after that. Just takes too much time between college and work.
#28 Posted by lizardspike (154 posts) -

I watched up to the episode where Teddy turned into a person and was like WHAT THE WHAT? It blew my mind, I didn't consciously stop watching it, I just thought I'll let a few episodes pile up till I have some time to watch them. Then it was more and more episodes then it snowballed into me not having enough time to catch up on all the episodes I had missed. I tried jumping back in with a current episode (at the time) but it just didn't seem right, it seemed like I'd missed out on so much content that it was almost heart breaking.

#29 Posted by HotSauceMagik (264 posts) -

They were too far in by the time I came around to GB...I tried to watch a few, but not knowing what was going on made it tough to watch,

#30 Posted by killdave (1073 posts) -

Watched the first 20 - got bored
Weeks later I watched another 2 - got bored
Watched ep.50
Watched ep.Final

#31 Posted by Mooshu (486 posts) -

Why isnt "I didn't want the game spoiled" an option?

#32 Posted by OmegaPirate (5523 posts) -

Didnt have the time 
 
Between working 45 hours a week - girlfriend time, gym time, football and drinking time - i have very little time available, which i like to spend playing games myself =D 
 
I love the Gb crew, and RPG's and am sure i would've loved the endurance run, but not at the cost of my own game playing experiences

#33 Posted by xplodedd (1316 posts) -

i dont have an hour aday for it.

#34 Posted by RichardLOlson (1852 posts) -

I watched a few, but I didn't watch all of them.  I couldn't really get into that much though, so I just stopped watching it.

#35 Posted by ElectricBoogaloo (352 posts) -

I watched the first 14 a couple of weeks back and it convinced me to buy the game, so obviously I then stopped watching so it wouldn't spoil it. If I had an iPhone and the app I'd watch them on the train - or if they could be downloaded and stuck on an iPod Classic - but at the moment there's too many and I can't really be bothered.

#36 Posted by SuperSambo (2858 posts) -

Not really interested in Persona, however I would if it were another game.
 
I voted the wrong one by mistake though as I selected other...
 
Sorry

Get bent.

Not a fan of Persona. Not a fan of anime stuff.

My story is pretty much the same. I have watched a bunch of episodes (maybe 40) but nowhere near the big amount because I started my own game but never progressed far. I don't know if I ever will finish either now too.
#40 Posted by Kowbrainz (923 posts) -

I watched it all (chose Get Bent though since I didn't see the other option and assumed it meant the same :P) but I have mixed feelings now that it's over... I mean, now that I've seen everything there is to see, I kinda wish I'd played Persona 4 for myself first, but at the same time if I had waited to play it first I'd probably never watch this. Half of the appeal wasn't just watching them play, it was that it was on every night almost like a television show, although better since I never watch any TV these days. I saw people who were able to bunker themselves down during their break and watch two dozen episodes in chunks and just thought man, I could never do that.

#41 Posted by c1337us (5751 posts) -

Persona 4 is a game I am going to start playing pretty soon (just finished 3) so I want to see it all for myself. I did watch the first 5 episodes though. 

#42 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2402 posts) -

I watched them all, but towards the end I started to FF during grinding parts of episodes. Frankly those parts just get really boring to watch and I have better things to do with my time than watch the 500th enemy battle.

@dbz1995: Wrong! You have not made a forum, you have made a thread. Off-Topic is a forum, General Discussion is a forum, you are currently in the Persona 4 forum and have created a thread called "If you didn't watch the Endurance Run, why?"

...Get Bent.
#45 Posted by FlamingHobo (4482 posts) -

I just didn't have the time to watch all of the episodes and I can't really get in to watching other people play a game, unless it's something that I'm interested in or something that is yet to be released. I'm glad that the users who watched the Endurance Run to the end had fun, but it's just not my cup of tea unfortunately.

#46 Edited by munnyman5 (184 posts) -

I chose "Too Much Time", but that's only the "why I didn't" for up until like 3 weeks ago. Then is when I started endurance running the Endurance Run, and I'm almost at the end now. It's fucking awesome. 
 
And for poor underused but overAWESOME Kanji's sake, I'll give you a non-caps-locked  

get bent.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
I mean that in the nicest way possible, like maybe get more flexible from doing yoga and extend your lifespan, or something along those lines. 
 
And now, a moment of silence for Charlie Tunoku. May he always be thou, and thou be-ith him...?
#47 Posted by SoothsayerGB (1468 posts) -

Get Bent.  Because its there.  :)
 
Also, No.  Because Persona 4 is a HORRIBLE game.  Pure trash.  Really hoping they play a real game next time.  Not some J garbage.

#48 Posted by Asurastrike (2165 posts) -

I was currently playing Persona 4 when the Endurance Run began, and I finished it months before the ER ended.

#49 Posted by LiquidSwords (2738 posts) -

Watched them all but skipped to the good parts. Get bent fanboys
#50 Posted by Jedted (2342 posts) -

Get Bent!!!
