How would you feel if team VJ stopped their ER?

Would you mind it a lot or not care that much? You see, they really dont seem to be enjoying the game. They dont seem to be having fun at all during the gameplay, and while they arent bothered by the cutscenes they dont really seem to enjoy the story so far either. So what does that leave them with then?

 
Team BR seems to be having a better time I think. Brad compains a lot, but I dont think he really dislikes it as much as you might think, mostly because he's got Ryan's enthousiasm to keep his spirits up. Team VJ however, seems to form a united front of disintrest! I dont think the guys should have to continue the ER if they really arent having a good time anymore, because who wants to watch that anyway? And why should they have to finish every game they pick simply because they did so with the first one? 
 
Then again, it is still pretty early and maybe team VJ will warm up to it later on, but I kinda doubt it. 
 
Anyway, discuss.

I wouldn't care if both just decided to finish it prematurely.

I think it was stated in an earlier post that Jeff is out this week? Might be that they had to do a lot of episodes on a short time before he left, and that could make them less enthusiastic about it. Perhaps it will be better when Jeff is back and they cna shoot episodes normally.

I think you're wrong that they aren't interested in the story of the game, and I think they have been a lot more patient with it's mechanics than team BR.

It's up to them, I'd like them to keep going for a little while and get to know the characters a little bit more before they decide what they're going to do.
 
I don't really get the vibe that they HATE the game, just that they got tired of that tedious lumbermill section pretty fast. And really, who wouldn't?

If Vinny gave the controller to Jeff, all would be fine. The whole reason they find the game tiresome (and the reason I switched to BR) is cause Vinny shoots every box 8 times with the peashooter, runs down every dead end, observes every object, conserves anything that would help him progress and would rather waste 5 mins shooting boxes for $5 in game dollars he will never spend than actually go on with it. 
 
I love Vinny, but having an OCD completionist play an open world game as slow as DP is a BAD IDEA!

Other way around to me, Jiffy seems to be enjoying it more than Bryan. 
 
Of course, Jiffy are now really far behind, and I'm sort of interested in the plot now, so to be honest I probably wouldn't be too bothered if they quit, as unfunny as Bryan can be sometimes.

I think that this is absolutely true. If they stopped the ER, I would be pretty upset because I think that they would have a lot of fun with dialogue portions later on. As someone who has completed the game, I can say that it gets stupider and crazier as it progresses.

Oh, you should totally watch the BR ER. The first few episodes are rusty, but it's pretty entertaining now. Night fishing!

I don't know why they decided to have to concurrent Endurance Runs of the same kind of boring game. It would of been way better if BR done Deadly Premonition and VJ done an ER of some other game.

If I could buy the game for myself I wouldn't give a shit, but since I can't buy this game and I can't stand team BR and their inability to play videogames, team VJ is the only way for me to see this game through the end... If they stopped I would be pretty dissapointed no doubt.
 
Also, PLEASE MAKE EPISODES LONGER. Thanks!

Vinny really does stretch out the shittier aspects of the game just by playing it the way he does. If you know the zombies respawn and basically hardly attack at all, and the money doesn't really matter cus you never spend it, and all the boxes ever have are more objects you never use, maybe just walk by? I knew it was a bad sign when he stayed in like one spot for 10 minutes killing zombies that would then respawn before realizing they respond in ep 1. Not defending the game, Im just saying if the point of these things is so you can comment and react to the parts of the game that made it infamous, don't fucking dwindle on the shit that made it mediocre and sigh like its the game's fault you're compelled to shoot every box you come across.

It's funny cause when the ER started, Team VJ was clearly the more enthusiastic one. But I've been a supporter of team BR since the start! ;)

Same.
I don't have the time to watch both, and I thought VJ had more enthusiasm than BR so I stuck with them.
I also don't care about Vinny's need to search every corner.

They do like the story. They were just getting annoyed because they were stuck in the mill for so long.
 
 
Yeah, they don't like the combat but who possibly could? It's horrendous. That doesn't stop it from being hilarious though.
 
Wish people would stop analysing everything thing the guys say to such detail. Just chill and enjoy the ERs.

They definetly shouldn't stop.
 It would be so awesome if BR finished the game two weeks earlier than VJ, and only one ER was running at that point.

I enjoy them both about equally, so I wouldn't mind a whole lot if BR were the only ones still going.
 
But they won't quit. They don't seem any more demoralized than BR, unless you're one of those ultra-sensitive types who flip out at at any remotely negative comment they might make.

Firstly, they won't stop.  Secondly, BR kinda sucks.  I find myself riffing off of what Ryan is saying out loud because Brad is such a non-presence when he isn't driving in the wrong direction or getting killed by zombies.

I've been enjoying BR more than VJ lately, but I still watch both. Wouldn't want either of them to end prematurely.
 
I mean come on, there are jokes that only Vinny's sick mind will think of... and maybe mine...

I watch team BR anyway, and they're doing very fine, so I don't know if I'd care at this moment. Many complain about Brad's horrible gaming ability, but he had his moments ("I totally nailed the handling of this dude"). Also, Ryan killes me in every episode - if anybody makes a Best Of compilation like with the P4 ER, the part where he yells commands to Brad has to be there.

Funny how we seem to have drasticly different ideas on who is enjoying the game more and which team is funnier. Shows how much we know I guess.

maybe you dont remember this, but an endurance run stops when they finish the game or one of them doesnt want to go any further
 
why have you decided there is no out for them?

Having the ability to quit makes calling it an 'Endurance Run' kind of pointless.

Yeah, they are just having fun.  You know how Vinny messed around with the windscreen wipers and turns Agent York in circles... that is exactly what I do in games. Even if they are the best games in the world, I am just a lolly gagger, but I love Team BR's Endurance Run a lot more just because I am seeing a totally different side.  So those 2 hated the game at first but now seem to be warming up to it and now really flying through that game.  I started watching Team-BR just because I thought that they were the only ones going through this game at first, so I always watch Team-BR, and then Team-VJ if I have time the next day or sometime during that week, but I will always sit down and watch Team-BR out of habit.
 
Anyways, I like both and am glad they both did it.  Right now I have watched all 20 episodes... 10 from each team and loving each side and how they are not talking about anything (or so it seems in that Brad just learned how to run through doors).

Well, that's what I like about their ER style. Let's not forget it was VJ that started the whole thing, maybe that's why they have two teams. Pick your flavor.
