@lordloc: I get where you’re coming from with Jeff. He should be honest and speak his truth and he doesn’t have to like or dislike anything. But, there comes a time when you need to look at yourself and assess, right? Like, the image he puts forward in these podcasts seems like a person I wouldn’t want to work with. Or a friend I’d have concerns for. Because, it seems like that cynicism is extremely pervasive and persistent. It seems beyond just having particular tastes. I hate doing the audience thing of playing therapist but the guy just doesn’t seem well. Which, selfishly, makes the GB content he’s on not very enjoyable. But just from one person to another, it seems like the guy may benefit from looking inward and seeing where he is overall.

I wonder if the negative comments, despite the positive comments, make the GB team not want to listen to their audience at all. It would me. Most of these comments aren't constructive. They're just mean.

@elflaconeri: He mentioned at the beginning that the video is unedited, but it was from an event. I can't speak for Brad, but I'd imagine there'd be a similar pressure recording a video for an audience as there would be playing the game in real-time. In both cases, I'd have to imagine you are aware that what you are doing is going to be viewed for entertainment and information. I.e., keep the pace fast.

@shift_andrew: I've also seen streamers who have the same problem as the GB guys have; walking the line between being entertaining and informative and having as much difficulty. I'm sure there are exceptions, but it's worth having some empathy for the position these guys are in here. It's not easy playing a game on video. But it's really easy to point out when people make mistakes. Imagine if those that spent as much time finding all the problems with these videos instead focused on all the parts they liked instead?

I don't think most of us realize how hard it is to show off a game to an audience, knowing you are being recorded and a good number of people will watch you. Like, say, with tutorials. Brad could take a while reading the tutorials and practicing, but also people may be bothered that he's taking so long. For example, they get that when they are in menus for an extended period of time. I imagine it's really hard to find a good balance. I think their audience would benefit in remembering that before heading into the comments.

Man, Jeff, dude.

Abby: "I like playing games like this with friends."

Jeff: "Zombies are dumb."

Abby: "...I uh...yeah, well, I like playing mindless shooters with friends, you know?"

Jeff: "There are better games for that."

Abby: "...so how's it going Vinny?"

You know, this game doesn't look good, but I guess I was expecting it to be worse based on what I heard on the Beastcast. But I'm also not a fan of the series so maybe my barometer is off.

Good list. I haven’t played the majority of those and they look worth checking out. But, I’ve got to say, of course you put a Marvel game first.

Man, this comment section is something else. But, I guess cynically speaking GOTY and lists in general are in part about putting up lists to gain traffic so people in comments section can freak out, right? So win-win?
