@VoidofLight She can have big Boobs fine, But I would fine the fact that felt the need to do close ups is kinda annoying.

@Joeynator3000 Maybe bc there swords 🤷? idk.

@Joeynator3000 Well it kinda sounds like Some people have a problem with it, wile others don't, but the fact that you play those games and have an issue with it kinda worries me.

@Snatcher
Like I said, I'm fine with fanservice, but it depends on the game, Xenoblade doesn't need it. xD

@Eel

Really though, why is it that most Nintendo youtubers are scum? They either start out good and become scum, or they start out as scum, and become even worse scum. Poketubers are a pretty bad off-shoot of these types of youtubers, with there barely being any good ones.

I also know that the blocked content guy started to do rumor videos a while back, and kept passing off rumors as reality as well.. which was pretty messed up.

Honestly, the only channel I can think of that had...issues, was GameXplain. I used to love their videos...then a lot of the members I loved left and I heard the truth about the channel owner...and...yeah.

Ah well, at least one of the members is part of NintendoLife now. owo

@VoidofLight Block Content just picks up any 4chan rumor he can find and makes it into a video.

@Joeynator3000 Yeah, Gamexplain used to be good, then the drama with the bitblock happened.. where I kind of started to lose a bit of interest after seeing how Andre started acting, and then the drama with the employees happened, which made me just despise gamexplain entirely.

@YusseiWarrior3000 Switch Up has excellent reviews. My only problem with them is those Eshop sale videos. I never liked them; they always tend to exaggerate the sale.

I don't enjoy suffering alone. However, I don't mind making others suffer alone.

...if I don't like a Youtube channel, I just don't watch them.

I mean, I don't like the clickbait obsession any more than anyone but until they start hurting actual people in any way, I really don't care. Just don't watch **** channels then. Simple.

I also can't stand channels like Chiguy, who are overly negative about pretty much everything, and they act like major [can't say the word because of the filter, and can't think of a family friendly alternative].

@kkslider5552000 I usually don't watch them either, but I feel annoyed whenever they just rear their ugly head. I also despise them because they're a part of the reason why the Nintendo community is the way it is when it comes to "leaker culture". Why people like Samus Hunter are prominent, instead of being seen as the farce that they truly are, and why people get upset when their false hopes aren't met, because they got their hopes too high.

I agree with this.

I mean, the obsession with it all is weird. I think I've lucked out in that I've zoned out of a lot of gaming hype, partially because a lot of companies gave up on releasing games worth being hyped about (as we saw regularly this past E3), so a lot of this stuff passes me by. I know all the channels mentioned here, but I've not seen any of them in a while, some for years now.

I subscribe to the following channels:-

Pat The Nes Punk
A weekly podcast which is broken down into videos on different content, more focus on retro gaming, lots of discussion on the WATA stuff. Not clickbaity, but quite niche.

Spawn Wave
I like that he puts chapter markers into his daily videos so I can easily skip a a section if it's not of interest. I listen to the Spawn Cast often but not every week. I'd say this is one of the more professional channels, I don't think it's clickbaity. Really good for daily news etc.

RGT 85
Clickbaity titles, but mostly has a good take on subjects. Production values are low, often with bad edits.

Nate The Hate
Good for a long listen if you're interested in the subject matter that week. Only posts videos once a week or so. Not clickbaity.

Player Essence
4th Member of the Spawn Cast on this list! Covers similar subjects to RGT85 and Spawn Wave. Clickbaity titles, not bad content IMO, but I don't watch it as often as the others.

BeatEmUps
I used to watch every video he posted, but he's more on Twitch these days which I don't really use. Not sure if I'm being harsh (I probably need to go back to his channel) but I think his success may have gone to his head a bit. Clickbaity titles.

Blue Shell
I think they cover good subjects and ask interesting questions, but their analysis and conclusions are not always as strong as I'd hope. Clickbaity titles, but I don't mind, they just need to improve the quality of their content.

Nin10doland
Similar to Blue Shell in that they can have a good premise to a video (How Likely is Galaxy 3, What if Luigi had an updated move set in Smash etc) mixed bag in quality. Some clickbaity titles/thumbnails.

Good Vibes Gaming
Not Clickbaity at all, but I rarely watch their content. The do loads of long form content (most videos are at least 90 minutes) and they are not my go to channel to listen to a discussion. I wish they would do more shorter content.

To be successful on Youtube, you have to be a appealing to new viewers, which can mean being clickbaity, don't you?
