    I love the tweet at 1:04 “the game did not hold my hand and tell me exactly what to do”

    Reminder that the state of our politics is where it’s at today because 8 years ago a video game journalist slept with some indie game developer.

    Tbh game journalists put themselves in this "damned if you do, damned if you don’t" situation through shitty needlessly politicized articles and gutter-trash opinion pieces no one signed up for. Now the entire industry is taking the flak for the people that put said industry in this place to begin with.

    Shout out to gamerant who finds Reddit posts and make articles about them and calls it news

    Game "Journalists"

  7. Der Ritter on December 19, 2021 at 1:01 pm

    How to be a prolific game journalist:
    Say some dumbass shit, make wild and unfounded accusations, and don’t even attempt to be logical or rational.

    Don’t bother with these people, you can’t reason with someone who refuses to see reason. If you encounter a person like that, don’t argue with them, instead expose their stupidity to the world or simply call them an idiot or don’t interact with them at all. Just don’t argue with them, it’s a waste of time.

    The only game journalist continue to exist is because they’re the only ones who can review games before officials release.

    The only reasons they get access early is because they’re shills.

    And they simply have momentum from the past. They just have a stayud quo on their side. Their names and reviews affect programmers paycheck.

    Their reviews gets put on the box.

    It’s like people who still use microsoft edge because they can’t change to another one but on mega steroïds.

    (Though edge is nowhere near that bad. And some actually prefers it).

    Tbf though, youtubers are getting there too. How many big streamers give positive attention to shitty games like BF2042 or Far Cry 6, simply because they want free codes and money?
    If you want a good Critique of the entertainment industry today, watch Lack Of Entertainment. Great channel.

    Good video, but yungyea is NOT a good YouTuber lol

  11. Somjay Guha on December 19, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    Flashing YongYea as a journalist or informative is an insult in itself.

  12. 4th Chairman on December 19, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Vaccine mandate criticism is valid, other than that, you’re spot on in this video lol

  13. holyX on December 19, 2021 at 1:10 pm

    Having scouted the comments I guarentee game journos were highly TRIGGERED from this vid, which makes it twice as hilarious. They are so pathetic outside their Twitter safe space 🤣

  14. Kaim Argonar on December 19, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    Game journalists are literal subhumans. They are worse than contributing nothing to society, they actively worsen it.

  15. Chris G on December 19, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    i hate these people more than anyone else

  16. Romeo Alpha on December 19, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    I only open their websites with ad blockers.

    game journalists are the reason we dont have a definitive cut of alien isolation

  20. El Troll on December 19, 2021 at 1:21 pm

    ‘this kid jumps like a n-‘

  21. Tommy T on December 19, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    There’s a simple explanation. Big name (gaming) news outlets aren’t in the profession reporting good stories. In the same way that Amazon isn’t really a big retailer. Amazon is a logistics manager who focuses on getting whatever you want to your house and fast. That’s what makes them Amazon

    News outlets exist because they are large and can get advertising funding. That is their sole goal. Put a headline out. Put it out everywhere so everyone can see it. Even people barely interested. Get it out there in a way no lone YouTube could even dream of doing. Then get the clicks. More clicks. More adverts. More money.

    Has nothing to do with their content. And that’s the secret. It never did.

    Loved the R Truth smile when you said honesty

    Yet another thing ruined by corporate greed and the psychological Negativity Bias. Another day, another disappointment.

  24. Akirale Torimaki on December 19, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    2:21 YOU’RE the crazy one if you DON’T believe those jabs cause injury and death! Have you even SEEN the VAERS data?
    Also, if you support the mandates (i.e.: FORCING people to take it or lose their jobs/freedom), YOU are a Communazi!

  25. CrazyWorldOutThere on December 19, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Games urinalists

  26. Aaryn Bastian on December 19, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    as someone who works in the game industry, i really only go to these sites to see if they are talking about scandals or reports on games that has relation to lawsuits, its workers and the stability of the industry. (like when blizzard stock crashes down, or the numerous sexual harassment lawsuit)
    but if i wanna hear someone’s review, just like you said, ill be looking that up here in youtube hahahah

  27. cowpoke on December 19, 2021 at 1:30 pm

    YongYea is a shill lmao

  28. Dim The Mighty on December 19, 2021 at 1:31 pm

    The part with is lego is sexist? I lost faith

  29. Charles Lecher on December 19, 2021 at 1:33 pm

    1:04 I’m more concerned with the fact he called it a rock

  30. Austin Grant on December 19, 2021 at 1:35 pm

    Politics in video games isn’t a problem. In fact I love it. A lot of my favorite games deal with heavy political topics. I think the problem is when journalist want it to be topical. Like about Trump or Biden etc. like that’ll make the material outdated fast.
    Also on the other side of this argument. No; lgbtq and non white people being in games is not a “political statement” quit making people existing a political issue cause it’s not.

  31. Backlog Game Reviews on December 19, 2021 at 1:35 pm

    I just want to say that even though we have outlets like youtube and twitch the written word will always be a things. Written articles have good qualities that videos don’t. It’ll be a long time before visual media kills written media if at all.

  32. Nef Waenre on December 19, 2021 at 1:35 pm

    Oh my Zod, every article title you showed here, boiled my blood. WTF goes in their head? And how do these "game journalists" think that they’re relevant??

  33. Alex Klemens on December 19, 2021 at 1:36 pm

    This dude is discount internet historian and I’m here for it

  34. Magic Rainbow Elf on December 19, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    lol game journalists are literally of less value than actual shit, the only thing a game journo provides is the ability to make jokes about it, you can do the same with shit and also use it as fertiliser

  35. BurningIceCube on December 19, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    The only good games journalism is Yong Yeah’s YouTube channel

  36. Aether Blackbolt on December 19, 2021 at 1:39 pm

    The unfortunate thing is that thus doesn’t seem to be exclusive to massive game journalism websites like IGN or Kotaku, but a disease that any game reviewer can fall to. Once they get big enough, they’re tempted to shill for companies and games to get big opportunities.

    YongYea burned my trust when Cyberpunk came out and he gave it a glowing review despite game breaking bugs. Skill Up likewise. Other games soon came after where they gave good reviews only to end up being obviously lacklustre.

  37. Deric Mederos on December 19, 2021 at 1:41 pm

    I really want to see a response to alanah pearce, a former ign employee, saying there was zero pressure to give a game a good review

  38. Ocean Redux on December 19, 2021 at 1:42 pm

    UH….CHUN LI ISNT FROM FUCKING MORTAL KOMBAT…..No wonder gamergate happened….holy shit….

    "Hey Guys welcome to this review of the new xbox one x, but first lets talk about the industrial revolution and it’s consequences"

  40. f1r3 hunt3rz on December 19, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    Why the fk are they ‘game’ journalists then? Frigging hell man, just throw away the word ‘game’, they don’t deserve it.

  41. Huren Sohn on December 19, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    read an article yesterday about when wild rift is coming to console. the piece unironically wad like this:
    headline
    WHEN IS WILD RIFT COMING TO CONSOLE?
    second headline
    when is wild rift coming to console?

    actual article
    When is wild rift coming to console?



    we dont actually know when its coming to console.

    god please kill that fucking industry for good.

  42. A random zoomer on December 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm

    reminds me of the time I wanted to read a review of cyberpunk and half the article was about how the writer was a trans man and how he didn’t like that his male character with a vagina was animated to be penetrating some hoes that he decided to have his character bone, as if the developers had maliciously done that.

  43. Cake is yummy on December 19, 2021 at 1:47 pm

    This video has a little Something for Everyone.

  44. IceLordOtis on December 19, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    I agree with everything you say in the video, but have to say it’s a bit misleading to edit in parody headlines and present them as real alongside the genuine game journalism quality control failures

  45. Gary Redfield1 on December 19, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    We truly are fucked.

  46. Totino's Other Boy on December 19, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    If everyone who worked at Jezebel all of a sudden dropped dead, there would be no negative impact from it

    Bruh, when you said "Google search". You legit triggered my Google assistant on my phone lol.

  49. Era Del Sol on December 19, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    The song at 4:51 sent me some flashbacks and im now feenin to find the song.

  50. Maxwell Vindman on December 19, 2021 at 1:56 pm

    I will say that the late game bosses in sekiro are fucking aids
