More popular doesn't mean it's better, same thing as Justin Bieber, popular too but no one is saying he will win any musical accolades.

It's entirely possible a huge chunk of his fans is dumb 12 years olds that doesn't know any better.

For final proof, here's adults watching Pewdiepie:

Nah

(He's actually rather popular with the ladies. I've seen complete non-gamers avidly watching his videos)

Your comment is as ridiculous as the whole Penny Arcade Dickwolves debacle. As vehemently opposed as I am to 'people' that harm others, especially with sexual crimes, the internet needs to learn to exercise some cop-on when it comes to who should get the pitchforks treatment.

'He said the word rape! Get him!!!!!!!!'
