I'm looking for Youtube channels or just single videos which provide detailed analysis about the story/gameplay/game design/whatever of video games or just interesting theories, facts and other stuff like that. I don't really know how to explain it any better so I'm just gonna link a few examples.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vp4-9G47uF0 (Oblivion analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X2tiINl-X8 (Nier Automata analysis)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEj5FsBXFuM (Mass Effect indoctrination theory (there are three parts I believe))

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lk8tsK-FIdE (Pokemon Yellow glitch series)

I also like this guys game design videos
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmY2tPu6TZMqHHNPj2QPwUQ

or pannenkoek2012's SM64 videos.

I just realized I'm being kinda vague here, I'm bascially searching for informative game videos. Any game goes.

heroes of the storm is not dead, he really tried to make it seem like a big deal with that video, the thing is the game is just not competitive and never was, it's a casual game, the forced ranked/competitive modes died, but the game is very much alive and people play it for fun as is was clearly designed to be played. It is like the team fortress 2 of moba games

I've been trying new genres of games and as a lower skilled player the only thing that allows me to try these games in multiplayer is SBMM. I've tried games in the same genre without it, and the difference of what my true level is is palpable. I've been reading forum threads to see what the normies think about it. And one thing I've learned is that the type of gamers who post on forums, are usually not your typical average gamer, but more hardcore just to care enough to post. So often their complaints might be the opposite for a casual noob like me, and actually be to my benefit.

Its just an interesting exercise in hypocrisy and the golden rule with the SBMM bitching. They don't like being hunted by the sharks, but complain that they can't have a "casual relaxing" game of hunting guppies. Theres no self-awareness of staring into the mirror, of what a hell being around people like themselves is.

I used to have this fantasy of all the Nietzschean ubermen, will to power, will to dominate types being sent to their own Mad Max island where they can dominate each other. Wolves eating wolves. But it seems its not every fun to be on a diet of wolfmeat, they need some nonconsenting sheep too. I've seen some proposals for a more voluntary SBMM. But the self-aware among them, admit that most casuals would choose it, and so they'd still be in the same box. Basically they want casuals to be forced to play with them.

It just fascinating to see in the gaming world, how ubermen feel about being sent to my Mad Max island where wolves can only eat other wolves.

Holdfast community is a really interesting thing and quite balance imho.
In one public game you can have extremely professional players fighting tooth and nail for controlling one ground, and next to it you can have a fist fight with musicians from both sides dancing together and neither would get a 2nd look. Pro players don't shit on people who just have fun and those who have fun are perfectly fine with pro's too.
It is really a nice break up from the time when I shouted at for failing to uber some heavy in a specific moment in tf2.

Man that game was fun. Especially insurgency mode where both sides were a bit more goofy. I loved packing a 5-8 men into one big car and basically going on a suicide mission. Nevermind the all cars that blow up and people shouting allahakbar on mumble.
Simple times. Now the servers are empty and Squad is more popular but I feel that game still needs a bit more work.

You get a similiar vibe in TF2 but it's more segregated by servers. There's competitive servers where everyone better get their shit together and then there's 24/7 2Fort where you can fight if you feel like it but it's mostly for goofing around and hanging out.

I have still never played the game, I can't get over the fanbase being retarded plus the weird tumblr characters, and I doubt I would even enjoy it at this point in life. From what I've seen in gameplay clips the pseudo-deep story looks like it was made to appeal to kids and teenagers, and I'm getting well past that point now

I have beaten Undertale at least 5 times. The first was completely blind, where I feel I 'messed up'. Went back, did it 'right'. Then did it 'very wrong'. I still wanted more. I tried beating hardmode, but it turns out that isn't completely implemented. Then I beat it on pacifist again just to try a few more things. I bought it on switch and beat it 2 more times, once for the exclusive content and another for completionist sake of trying to find everything. Its one of the few games I ever felt like I really wanted to explore. And yet, for Deltarune I just am not very interested. Maybe I just want to play the full game when its out or something but I have no interest following its development beyond chapter 1, which kind of felt like I discovered everything on the first playthrough.

tl;dr phenominal game, best game of 2010s

 No.56682

The story is, from what i remember not that good due to the lack of advanced plot elements like tension, urgency, cohesion etc. You fall into the underground and your goal is to go back up but for that there is way to much dialogue and way too many characters that have nothing to do with you (All except Toriel) that exist just to pad the game with endless dialogue (that could be easily compressed) especially Alphys. 1-2 hours in and you will forget what was your purpose since your character (Frisk) has no character development or dialogue by design. No one else cares about your mission until almost the end, except Toriel which stops being plot relevant after the first area. If you were to remove the references to the underground/overworld you could have a totally different plot based entirely underground and the later parts like the core could be set up for a different goal.

Contrast this to lets say Cave Story which does this too but with a smaller relevance and for a limited time before remembering you what you're supposed to do through plot progression events.

Its structure is unfortunately made in such a way that if you end up liking it like i did, you will certainly enjoy it till the end. If you didn't, you will see the issues that you otherwise wouldn't see if you were imersed, which also happen to start being visible on the second playtrough. For example i remember how annoying Alphys is calling you every 2 steps in order to tell you something you will forget 5 minutes later, even though this wasn't a problem on my first playtrough.

As for the depth and appeal, when i played it as a kid in early 2016 i really felt that the story is unique and interesting but i didn't put much brain tought into since back then i was too dumb for anything story related and would pretty much skip all the talking and move straight into the gameplay if it was a different game, but not for this one since i really liked it for some reason. If i were to play it for the first time right now i would still like it but probably wouldn't go past 40% of it since i have much less patience now.

Its amazing to me that my 2020 gaming PC far exceeding the recommended GPU benchmarks, struggles to get 60fps on games from 2010-2015

Games are such ridiculous resource hogs. No wonder PC gamers have to construct supercomputers to process them.

Back when I was a teenager I thought that I would be a PC gamer forever, because PC gaming was superior in my mind, probably had a little to do with 4chan memes too. But I am starting to change opinion, a console is looking more and more attractive now that I'm older. I don't really care about hardware anymore, it feels like things move so fast now, I don't even know what the newest hardware is and whatever it is it is way too expensive. I just wanna lounge on a couch and play games with a controller and not worry about hardware specs or compatibility or whatever, just have fun.

So the thing is, I don't know anything about console gaming, haven't owned one since the ps2. Is there anything I should know? What sort of gamers does each console cater to? What does each console offer? How long are console's life-spans these days? Is it too late to get in on the current gen? I would like anyone to describe their joys with console gaming.

I think there's a significant split. Some children are careful, some are degenerate pieces of shit. Not sure of the percentage split or even which is most common. I was always very careful. I remember lending other children my games and judging whether they were rats that could be trusted or not. Some were fine, some would destroy anything they touched, scratching any game disc in 5 minutes somehow

Eh he was selling hardware hacks to pirate games that are almost entirely illegal, he wasn't just posting instructions about how to hack the device "and do whatever the fuck you want" those are everywhere and no one ever bothers them (or the websites full of pirate PS4 and switch games) this faggot on the other hand was selling expensive hardware with the explicit purpose of pirating games.

Using the retarded "consolefags go to prison for piracy! meanwhile I can do whatever I want on my PC" argument doesn't make any sense because it's not directly comparable, a much better comparison would be if you were selling an expensive piece of hardware for PC that spoofed steam servers to download games for free.

the issue isn't modding hardware or distributing information about how to do the modding. it's selling the modded product that violated another's intellectual property. some people got into trouble for selling what was essentially copy replacement 'outer covers' for the playstation 5 because the design violated sony's ip. it's the reason why you can't just repaint an xbox blue and sell it as something else. the ip for computer hardware isn't really about the entire package. at best one company has an ip for the computer case, another for the motherboard (or many), ditto for the designs of connectors like usb (i think you have to pay royalties for included usb on your device). the way you would violate ip for a PC would be taking out for 3060 graphics card, modding it, and selling it as a new product. there is also the issue that the guy was selling a subscription service for access to pirated games. plus human beings are the ones making these decisions not robots, money is involved, precedents must be set, things become political fast. could be wrong, i also can't find super detailed info on what exactly the guy was doing. it seems all news sites just regurgitate the same 5 factoids

It isn't just the hardware but also that some of the games use that hardware in very strange ways and are held together with hacks and hardware exploits to get it to do what they needed. Which doesn't easily translate in emulation.

The last time I upgraded my GPU I bought a GTX 1070. All these years later and I still feel like I don't need to upgrade anytime soon, runs everything I play perfectly… not that I give a shit about the latest AAA titles anyway.

20XX wasn't worth the upgrade to me, and 30XX is probably the last graphics card you'll ever need so congrats if you got one for a fair price.

I have said it before and I will say it again, right now with current GPU prices the best value for money is a console.

For $500 you get a fine machine similar to a RTX2070 with support for 5 years, that's completely unthinkable in GPU's.

The only exception would be if you live in South America or eastern europe where consoles are far more expensive and if you're gonna pay $1100+ may as well get a GPU.

If you want a toy sure. Unless you can install a real OS on those machines they're worthless. Modern gaming is terrible and you can't even emulate on them.

VR has been dead for years, same way 3D had. It's a neat gimmick but it adds too much complexity over using a standard TV. 3D belongs in the cinema where you go to see a fancy effect once in a while then move on with your life. It doesn't belong in the home where minor positioning can ruin the entire experience. The 3DS dropped 3D entirely pretty early, it's best feature was setting it on but 0 3D so it dimmed the screen and caused less eye strain.

In three to four years time full body tracking with haptic force feedback gloves and omnidirectional treadmills are going to be standard consumer devices. The headsets will be thinner, lighter and with better pass-through and higher processing power. They will have eye-tracking and lenses that don't cause distortion with fields of view comparable to what the eye can see naturally at resolutions where you can't see any pixels. VR is growing like crazy. The quest 2 outsold xbox last year. Comparing it to 3D TV just shows how little you know.
