Just how far can I troll on youtube? Episode 1.

This topic is locked from further discussion.

Posted by Godwind (2597 posts) -

So there is this "clique" on youtube making console war debates.  It is a fascinating a little bit.  Besides the fact these dudes are fairly retarded and make shit up, I wanted to see how far I can get away with trolling on youtube.  Now most important thing to remember is that this more of an experiment and a way of having a little fun. I plan on posing as a Wii fanboy (which people accuse me of anyways, so it shouldn't be too hard to convince this this clique)
 
My first victim is a young Canadian lad by the name GeneralMLD.
To give you a quick profile on this guy.

  1. He is the leader of the Xbox Republic
  2. Is obsessed with Metacritic ratings
  3. Wants to see the destruction of Sony
  4. A former Nintendo fanboy (Go figure)
  5. He doesn't Drink Molson, he drinks Blue.
 
I originally I made a video response to this guy, however, he decided to remove his video.   Apparently he is pansy that can't take on a lowly subbed lowly viewed youtube user.
 
Anyways, here is the response I made to that video.
 
  
  
 
  Half Grown Beard included too.
 
To summarize what occured for those who can't use adobe flash player.
-He called some PS3 fanboy "The Bitch" because the PS3 is losing to the Xbox360.  So I told him in his place as the 1st place "Wii Owner."
-There was an argument whether PSone classics should not be acknowledged because it is not on Metacritic.  I am advocating otherwise because there are more games available to the consumer.
-Discredit him because he doesn't want to include the shitty emulated Xbox Originals.
-Tell him the Wii has more games available on simply virtual console available. 
-70 or above is bullshit as consumers are the selectors of the games, not scores.
-That games on XBLA should included because they have additional content.
-Use games such as Pulseman, Space Harrier and Sin and Punishment.

Trolling! Cause it's.. fun?
I don't see the appeal.. You're just wastin' your time with fanboys man.
They're not even human.

#3 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

Just because you can't get people to like you, it doesn't make it OK to wind others up to hide that fact.

It's also an experiment of mine more importantly.  Plus I want to see a bunch of grown men cry over video games.

Logical fallacies abound!

You're not better than them, you're the same as them.  And your excuse of "it's an experiment" is bullshit.

#7 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

You're just as bad as them. Actually worse because you try to justify it as some "social experiment". It's just you being a dick on purpose.

#8 Posted by ISuperGamerI (1880 posts) -

This topic reminds me of the people that say RuneScape is better than World of Warcraft.

Well I applaud this experiment. 
We need more people like you, half bearded one, to push the envelope of Social Engineering. 
It has been know to happen...even here 
(shifty eyes) 
You could say...there was a...Cabal, but I wouldn't know anything about that.....

#13 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

You look like Ethan Suplee in that video.

I heard this kid died but didn't. That's fucked up.

Different strokes for different folks i say.

#17 Posted by Kombat (2205 posts) -

I'm going to fall in with the majority here and say that this is pretty pathetic. I'm not sure why you want to attempt arguing with people like this; they don't care what you have to say, and regardless of whether or not your "trolling" impacts them, they're not going to sway their fanboy outlook simply because someone disagrees with their logic. You're wasting your time. Do something more productive.

#18 Posted by FireBurger (1479 posts) -

"Real" trolls do it for "a little fun" as well. So, what makes you not a troll?

#20 Posted by MancombSeepgood (323 posts) -

Aren't the vast majority of xbox games okay to work on a 360?
Also, PS3's aren't backwards compatible anymore and finding a BC one is rare, so it'd be hard to count that too.
I mean, I know you're just trolling, but I'm still just gonna throw that out there.

two wrings don'tmake aright so don't flamebait him.
lol he was a infamous poster on Gamespot but got banned

I find this enjoyable.

#23 Posted by Fallen189 (4989 posts) -

Is this meant to be like, a joke? You just come across as a dickhead.

#24 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

There was some guy on YouTube that I subscribe to called Elpresador that made a bunch of videos annoying that GeneralMLD guy too. It was some funny shit. Your videos not so much no offense intended.

It's hard to understand what you're saying at times. I notice that you stumble over your words a lot.

#28 Posted by Muttinus_Rump (814 posts) -

Maybe he's... trolling us.
 
 
My God.

Well, this seems to be a rousing success.

Keep in mind that was actually emulating MLD.  He went around calling Sony fans "the last place bitch" and "scum of the industry."  He also alludes to himself as the "Alpha dog of youtube."

Yet another disastrous thread from Godwind.

If posting videos in reply to another video online makes you feel good about yourself,  I guess.

Isn't being a pretend fanboy troll even worse than being a real fanboy? At least an actual fanboy has the courage of their convictions and they don't know any better. You do.

#39 Posted by JJWeatherman (14558 posts) -

That video was actually kinda funny. 
 
This just seems like a very bad experiment though.

#40 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

Doing something retarded and saying it's an experiment doesn't make it better...
anyway

#41 Posted by MancombSeepgood (323 posts) -

Only the first episode and I have a feeling it'll be the last.

#42 Posted by Pie (7080 posts) -

Why did I just write a 1500 character response to one of his youtube videos....

#43 Posted by Pie (7080 posts) -

Also I dont think that guy's real, some of the stuff on his profile is too dumb

Dude... just sign up for a Gamespot account and go to the System Wars forums.
 
Actually, my one college course in introductory psychology (yes, it fucking counts) tells me the OP has a need to advocate the Nintendo Wii as a console platform.  Sure, he can do what most angsty gamers do and rant on various forums and comment sections.  These people are easily written off as "fanboys" though, with public opinion being that their statements have no weight in the overarching manifestation of low disposable income in the video game hobby.
 
So I find the OP's tactic to be pretty ingenious ('Ingenious' might be a little too far reaching. Let's say 'thought-out').  By making this thread, he is falsifying any accusation with being a Wii fanboy.  He/she only chose that console because "people think that they are a Wii fanboy to begin with."  Now with the aforementioned thread clearing him of any future finger pointing that he/she is just a fanboy, the OP is now free to be, well, a fanboy.
 
Intarwebz.  Fascinating stuff.

One problem with that theory, bro.  I actually own more than one console, aka consoles that are not just the Wii.  Part of that list includes a PS3 that is backwards compatible, which was obviously important to me play PS1 and PS2 games.  Seems you pissed away a semester taking a psychology course.

Didn't know owning a N-Gage or a Gizmondo excluded the need to still validate another, favored console.  Youtube me an answer to my response, please!
