How much do you hate Extra Credits?

The only thing that really bothers me is how they present themselves
>on a podium talking down to you
>jump cut every two seconds to keep the ADHD audience in check
>every paragraph written is riddled with sentences that make it sound like what they are saying is God-like
>they try to give you actual knowledge on a topic in five minutes; topics that would probably take a college lecture period to fully discuss
>Videogames are art first to them and entertainment second

And there are some videos that are either entirely misinformed or blatantly obvious topics
I've wasted my time on worse
>>
>>283849460
The only thing I have to credit them for is their recommendations lists.

Even then it got me into OFF, which, while I enjoyed it as a mediocre freeware game, its fanbase its basically cancerous Homestuck overflow, so.

I don't mind them generally. They can certainly get a bit pretentious and some episodes are plain retarded but it is tough to find academic type discussion regarding vidya and i do love me some overanalysis so meh

hate requires me to actually care, and i don't care about these idiots and their wrong opinion videos.

if they had actually produced something of importance you can damn well be sure they would be name dropping it constantly.

those who can't do make YouTube videos for adsense dollars

>every paragraph written is riddled with sentences that make it sound like what they are saying is God-like
This is my biggest problem with their videos. Their short video lengths compared with the complexity of the topics being discussed requires them to use some awful language shortcuts to make it seem like their hot opinions are just right and you shouldn't argue.

They sell their own ignorance as enlightened. I've never before seen people so far up their own ass.
They know jackshit about videogames, think ARMA is a Call of duty ripoff and generally annoy the shit out of everyone who played videogames before it became "hip" and "so nerdy" in 2007. Literally all their problems come from the fact that their first console seems to have been the xbox 360.
And their weird obsession with outdated fads like zombies (which became nerd chique around the same time thanks to crap like shaun of the dead and the dawn of the dead remake). Before that zombie movies and videogames were just awkward shlock for creepy nerds. And then it suddenly became cool and attracted people like extra credits.
Their points give you brain cancer if you try to understand them
>don't gender gameplay
>because girls don't like shooting stuff
like what the fuck man, that's a huge assumption to make in the first place and speaks more of YOUR fucking bias against women, you little chipmunk voiced beta faggot.

Probably nothing. He claimed to have worked on call of duty, but I think that turned out to be a lie, delusion or a stretch. Maybe he was in a target audience testing or something, where they dragged people fom college campus into some marketing firm to play for half an hour and then check some marks on a sheet.

Likely. I had a friend who Gearbox let test out BL2 for the XBox 360, and the bastard wouldn't stop flaunting it around and telling everyone about the entire staff there.

I haven't watched them in a long time. They had an interest idea; introducing video games for teaching school subjects. That's pretty much the only thing I liked, especially with how fucking hard it is for people to focus, kids especially, with the constant stimulation of technology.

I haven't watched more videos by them in a long time.

Their video about Jrpgs is absolute fucking shit

>JRPGs should be about epic story telling!
>every JRPG is final fantasy!
>lets ignore the appeal other jrpg-subgenres like shin megami tensei, etrian odyssey, Ys and Tales!
>REALLY, THE ONLY WAY JRPGS CAN SUCCED IS WITH EPIC FINAL FANTASY-LIKE STORY TELLING.

>WHY FIGHTING GAMES SHOULD BE CASUAL (we already have smash)

I hate EC so much Im going to do fucking do it.

the worst thing about EC is that they are not exactly wrong about some facts, but the way REPRESENT those facts as if they are the sole 100% fool-proof reasons to back up their bullshit narratives.

it generally goes in this fashion

- game has poor sales in america (fact)
- did well in japan (ignored)
- GAME IS BAD BECAUSE IT DIDNT APPEAL TO THE MINECRAFT TRANSGENDER DEMOGRAPHIC AND YOU HAD TO DO QUARTER CIRCLES TO EXECUTE COMMANDS
- HOW DO WE FIX THIS!? (there was nothing to fix in the first place)
>>
>>283855190

I couldn't imagine how long the list would be, the last video I watched was the PSVITA one where they used ridiculously outdated figures as the current systems sales suggesting the system had sold like 4 million units from launch until 2014.

When it really sold almost 9 million(while not high, they were out by a factor of 2) as of their video.
>>
>>283851158

>He continues in arcade games.

True casual right here.
>>
>>283856526

EC completely disregards that the current appeal of the vita is as a niche console with niche games

it has found success like that in japan and even in the west due to its huge indie library.

Vita actually keeps alive many small companies in japan like marvelous AQL (senran kagura) which is strongly supported by a small but dedicated niche fanbase who is willing to pay 80+ dollar equivalent in yens for huge limited editions.

why not even mention that vita is one of the highest-attachment consoles of all time? sure it doesnt sell that much but apparently everyone who has a vita seems to be happy, doesnt that count for anything AT ALL?

but never mind that, we all should listen to EC and play super mario baby 3D adventure on the 3DS because its what is successful and nothing else matters.

>Other M is bad Samus was a silent protagonist before Other M, and giving a voice to a silent character will always fuck it up
>Samus had extended dialog sequences if Fusion, 8 years before Other M
>Kid Icarus Uprising gave voices to a silent cast and came out amazing

Not saying Other M is good by any means, but they could at least be knowledgeable as to why it's bad as opposed to just being wrong all the time.

you are jesting right?
>>
I hate them not because I disagree with their opinions, I do, but that they present their opinions as facts of the industry yet have never really been involved in the industry in any serious way

1 guy that helps write the stuff used to be a Q/A kid for Activision like 9 years ago then worked on a mobile game for a company that he eventually left.

they have literally no experience in the industry and constantly address devs and tell them how they should be doing things when they have no real idea how it works

also spectrum crunch

>>283857707

fuck

I hate everyone that talks about video games because they have shitty, mostly wrong opinions and are always incompetent fucks that deserve ire.
>>
>>283847993
No matter what you think about their main series, the Super Mario Bros 1-1 Design Cub was pretty insightful
>>
>>283847993
Came in to say that I don't care as I haven't watched any of their videos yet.
All this hubub about Extra Credits is making consider changing that status though.

Is their any point to watching their videos? IS there anything good from their videos?
Otherwise I think I'll just stay, not having watched any of them.

>- HOW DO WE FIX THIS!? (there was nothing to fix in the first place)
from an industry perspective if someone doesn't sell well then there is absolutely something to fix.

The type of people who browse /v/ could give a shit whether a game sells well so long as we enjoy it, but you better bet sales matter to the people making the game
>>
>>283857963

they talk about every genre in videogames like they are experts on that genre only to post stupid mis-informed bullshit

>GENRE IS DEAD (its not)
>HOW DO WE FIX IT? (you dont)
>6 minutes of stupid changes that would kill said genre

now go watch a video (really, any video) and rage in despair
