I thought Machinima was a bunch of teenagers goofing off.

This is some professional stuff.

Machinima has thousands of videos, and has tons of people making content for them and living off it...

This is yet again, an awesome retrospective! Where's part 5? ;.;

Edit. Looks like they're on a one-a-week release schedule. Should see part 5 next week I guess. Says right on the link made by the OP.

I don't particularly like them, either, but it's not so much genre complaint as lack of innovation/originality within the respective genres.

Credit where it's due: they can collect ideas from dozens of other companies and products and polish them some slick and responsive interfaces better than anyone else in the field. And their cinematic department knows how to put together a cutscene. They don't do anything new, they just do stuff everyone else has done in an annoyingly better package.

And they slowly gutted and eventually fleshed out the Warhammer family of IPs into something less uncomfortable and creepy, creating environments that fans can immerse themselves in without forcing detachment or slowly feeling soiled.

Really? I'm a huge Blizzard fan. They are the company that got me into PC gaming back when the original Diablo and Starcraft came out. I was never into the Warcraft storyline. Granted I did enjoy WCII b.net edition, and WoW, but I did not love them by any means. However, your should acknowledge that they are pumping out some quality games with amazing storylines. I believe it is unfair to say they release tired old genres, simply because, there are no new genres left! lol. All games nowadays are releases of tired old genres then, if that is the way you look at it.

...Wow...you have no idea...

You must the the boring and bland one. Go play some solitaire, sounds like a game that would impress you.
