Yo everyone else, we get that you don't like Brad bitching about the game. 
So stop bitching about other people bitching and just watch the other ER, you pricks.

If the Monte Python jokes continue, this Endurance Run should end.

Exactly.  It would appear that he has EVERY reason to be negative.

You guys should stop suggesting that Brad and Ryan's run be the same as Jeff and Vinny's. Some of us are watching both runs, and what's the point of that if they're both the same? I for one am enjoying both the extreme pessimism and reluctance to play the game from the BR run, and the silliness from the VJ run.

" The contrast between VJ and BR is showing.  The ER to me is a VJ product. It's sort of like if Jeff started doing TANG with Ryan. Meh.  Brad and Ryan are simply not fun to listen to. The heavy negativity and general disinterest from Brad is killing it for me. "
I think that I would play this game the way that Brad is doing it.. sighing and moaning (well, more like not at all). But Jeffs and Vinny's constant jokes about everything could make practically anything entertaining, even a shitty looking game like this.
I wouldn't say this shows the contrast between them all. But rather that Vinny and Jeff has a great dynamic going on. And it was probably born in the P4 ER.

I find that Brad and Ryan have great humour, their witty comments are fantastic. Good Stuff!

I wouldn't want this to be exactly the same as Jeff and Vinny's. Two awesome sets of people, each with their own unique funniness. I love the way these guys are doing it the same as how Jeff and Vinny are doing theirs. Keep it coming guys.

Not to pile on, but this team needs to ease up on the "this game sucks", not because you're wrong, but because it's not going to get better in any technical or writing sense.  Embrace the madness, and I love you guys.

I like this in a different way than the VJ ER. It's pretty funny. I think Brad and Ryan need to get into a groove. The Persona ER took a few episodes for Jeff and Vinny to get into. This BR run has a good vibe. They are balzing through. It's fun.

The game appears to be terrible to me as well, but comically so. Therefore, Brad's complaints only make this ER even more entertaining for me. Also, I like this one more than the P4 one since, again, this game appears to suck.

vinny and Jeff are clearly the Endurance Run masters, but Brad and Ryan have a pretty good dynamic working. I hope Brad will eventually stop being quite so down on this game. There's nothing wrong with mocking a bad game, but VJ do it in a more lighthearted manner and in a less spiteful way than Brad does.

No, it's because what people like about the endurance run is that it's fun. It's like MS3K in that you take the bad parts of a game and poke fun of it. Brad just isn't giving it a chance and his commentary is just him being a downer. 30 minutes is hardly enough time to call it shitty. Graphics aren't everything, and I just wish Brad would just try and stay open minded. "
No he is giving it a chance, it's just pretty obvious you and some other people are biased in favor of the game for some bizarre reason, which is hilarious because you people have picked this horrible game of all the games out there to protect like it was your defenseless child or something. And if you think graphics are the only problem with the game.........um. "
You know, I haven't played this game. I don't hate Brad or anything. Apparently there is some aspect of this game people, including some reviewers, enjoy and if they don't like it that's fine, but they should at least get to that point before judging it. It could be any game or any other media, I don't like it when people hate on something they don't really know about. I wish he was more enthusiastic about this feature his website does. Also, calm down with the personal attacks. I get that your a tough guy and everything, but this is just debate. This is what the comments section is for.

The thing I love and Team BR is that they don't take shit from no game. They take care of business and then move on. Keep it up gents.

" I'm absolutely in agreement with Brad about this game being absolutely fucking terrible, but that doesn't make listening to his endless bitching any easier. It's not even that he's being sarcastic, though he is doing that as well. He is just bitching.  I've gotta say, though, that I don't understand why everybody wanted them to do an Endurance Run of a terrible game in the first place. Persona 4 is at least a great game. I'd much rather watch them play a great game for 40+ hours (80+ if you watch both ERs) than one that sucks. "
Definition of irony. Bitching about somebody bitching.

What are you guys talking about?  Brad said this game looks "stunning" early in the video.  Not negative at all.

Brad gives the impression that he seriously does not want to be playing this

I don't think that's merely an impression. If his whining continues through the next few episodes, they should throw him out and go for VJR. Ryan can draw from his Twin Peaks knowledge, at least. There is no rule saying it should be two people, right? "
A VJR endurance run?  Now you're talking!!

Have you, like, ever watched a Quick Look on this site or anything? They do what you're complaining about almost daily, often multiple times a day in playing a small part of a game and saying what they think of it. It's ridiculous to raise this complaint just now. Also, comments section IS for debate but it's not for ignorant whining which is what these guys are using it for.

Wow, I just finished it, and all I can say is everyone who is bitching is a melodramatic drama queen. You guys are doing great, and I enjoy the fact that you are playing it and have different commentary than the other Endurance run by Team VJ.
 
Nice to see two different and contrasting looks at this game.

its funny to see some of the parallels in comments and references between the two endurance runs.  Also, I don't mind Brad or Ryan's comments at all, personally.  I don't understand why some of the people here are so upset about it...

I've got no problem with what Brad has to say. I'm not "offended" or anything. It's not like I created the game, so why should I have a problem? Relax people!

I personally think Brad is going to come around on this game. We're talking about a guy who wasnt even sure he liked FFXII after playing it for like 20 hours, but he ended up giving it a good review if I recall. And as others have pointed out, I don't want each group to have the same experience and same reaction to everything in the game - that's boring. I also don't think they will quit, but if the nonstop BAWWWstorm in the comments continues they might think about it.

I don't see why people are that surprised at complaining about an awful game.  Yes, it's an awful game, noting that is kind of a quality of playing an awful game.  In MST they constantly complained the movies were bad because well...they were, same idea.   
 
I'd rather them have picked an actually good (but weird) game for these so that they could enjoy the experience as well, but maybe the next time around.

The problem isn't that the guys hate the game, if they hate it, make fun of the game for being shitty. Infact that is what Ryan is doing.
The problem is Brad doesn't just seem like he hates the game, it seems like he plane hates doing this endurance run at all, and it's straight up uncomfortable to listen too. 
Jeff and Vinny are being fun. Ryan is being fun. Brad is capable of being entertaining too, there's no reasons both Runs can't be great, but Brad needs to lighten up or something, he can hate on the game without being unhappy.
 
To be fair, Brad had one really good joke, the "I'm starting to suspect this might be a work of post modern genious" made me laugh.

I'm new to the endurance run, can the other team member take over if the "driver" loses it?  The amount of fatigue in Brad's voice doesn't bode well.

Yup, that's why I'm watching both also. Different dynamics and different senses of humor from two separate duos. I watch one early in the day and one late - keeps me happy :)

In the South, we would say Brad is full of piss and vinegar. I guess all that book learnin' makes him feel all high and mighty. He was born about 30 minutes from me, so he knows what I'm talkin' 'bout.

Brad doesn't like playing the game, and Ryan hates watching it. Nice combo guys, leave the enthusiastic endurance runs for someone who knows how to make them interesting. Ahem, Vinny and Jeff.
